HCG Diet (Day 27)

Today was my last injection of HCG. I now need to keep up the 500 calorie diet for an additional 72 hours before I am free to eat anything but starches and sugars for 3 weeks.

I'm getting more hungry as the days progress. I am glad I only have three days left before I can eat more. And the first thing I want is some peanut butter. I bought some good all-natural peanut butter today (no added sugar), and there's some celery just waiting to be covered in it!

Today I was hungry when I woke up, hungry about an hour and a half before lunch, hungry two hours before dinner, and hungry for about a half hour before bed.

Still exhausted. I know people who exercise on this diet, and I don't see how they do it. I am seriously lacking in energy, and I'm eating extra protein and averaging between 500-600 calories a day. My guess is that my vitamin and mineral stores have been severely depleted from such tight calorie restriction.

Interesting results this morning. My total body fat has not changed, but my visceral fat has dropped. Considering that earlier in the month my visceral fat had at one point just popped up to a 7, now it just dipped to a 5. It appears I have lost fat around my organs. Once again, though, my LBMI is dropping.

Breakfast: 3/4 cup fat-free cottage cheese (120)
Lunch: chicken (110), 1 cup spinach (7), 1 medium navel orange (80)
Dinner: chicken (110), 12 spears asparagus (39), 1 medium navel orange (80)
