What I have is my results with the hcg diet- including this pic of me a year later after finishing this protocol. And you won’t know this for sure about something until you really delve a bit deeper.
I know the rules of the hcg diet go against the generally-accepted-as-balanced-and-healthy-way-of-doing-things premise, but on looking deeper, you see that it doesn’t. Now I must mention that I also started up going to Crossfit in between my rounds of hcg and removed gluten from my diet, so I’m sure this played a role in the reduction of my medication.
But it’s obvious that my thyroid was not negatively impacted by the diet or there would be signs showing it did. Do I think you can hurt your thyroid if you live on hcg for a year, consistently cheating, etc. I know that’s sort of off-topic, but I mention it mainly because the notion of this extreme viewpoint that if you made a mistake when it came to your body the change would be PERMANENT is a little too much- hence why I called it a scare tactic. However, I’d like to share my recent experience that proves that, at least in my case, this scare tactic is not true. I don’t think the definition of success from a diet means that you lose the weight and then never gain or lose a single ounce from that point forward forever more. To me the real success is how you learn to deal with errors you might make in your diet from time to time.
That’s huge because most weight loss is actually a combination of water, fat and muscle, so when someone says they lost 15 lbs with a diet, only a portion of that will be pure actual fat- maybe 8-10 lbs or something usually. I think this protocol is great for losing larger chunks of weight.  Since I really only had a small amount to re-lose, and my health was on the better end at that point, it was worth it to me to see if I could save myself the loading, the vlcd, and the strict P3.  And it worked! I recently gained about 6 lbs of fat and lost it all on my own, without hcg, simply by tightening up my eating and doing a little intermittent fasting.  This seems to debunk the notion of never being able to lose weight without hCG again. I feel that if the hCG protocol really did ruin your thyroid and metabolism, all of the above would simply not be possible. If your definition of a healthy diet is only one that will allow you to live at fast food joints upon completion without gaining weight, dream on. What we need to provide people more help with is SUPPORT for making those long term changes.


Glad you havent had these horrible results, I just like you had amazing amazing success on HCG. If you have the book just follow the progressive rotational training along with the fat loss diet.
David – I am doing your fatloss circuits and getting great results combined with your fatloss eating plan and for the first time feel that Im not missing out on any food. Yes it really bothers me when people feel they have the right to make you feel bad about something they have not investigated at all. Actually some are finding that strict paleo is not good for women and their thyroid- have you looked into that?
There is a choice for everyone and I think we are all smart enough to do our own due diligence and others should be respectful of this. I stuck to protocol, never cheated, went paleo after maintenance and watched the weight PILE on. I have tried working out and dieting so hard for years and years and not much, this has maintained my muscle and been amazing.
And I’m so glad that my blog could help combat some of that negativity for you- yep, in November it will be 2 entire years since I’ve been maintaining my weight loss from the hCG protocol!
They asked why I packed my own lunch and when I explained my exciting new path toward health and weightloss, I got this “OMG WHAT KIND OF QUACK DR. Dealing with a little negativity about this protocol-so seeing this video this morning has only reinforced my resolve to do it.
Glycogen, for you non-bio nerds, is the stored form of glucose. So most of the loss of “mass” from muscle was water and stored glucose.
Then I found your website and read the blogs and you assured me that I was doing very well. Glad you are not letting those others get you down enough to make you quit- you will triumph! I also do not tell many people because I don’t need to hear negativity, I gain wt no matter what, this is giving me a chance to be thin again in 17 years! Additionally, these same studies showed that about 14% of the energy from a fast came from protein, whereas 85% came from stored fat.


Sick to death of my weight taking me out of events, photos (I hate seeing myself in full-body shots)…and weight preventing me from wearing clothes I want to wear.
I have reached a weight now higher than when i began and no matter what i do, how much i work out or how many drs i see for help nothing works. I don’t have a lot of weight to lose but I definitely was anticipating losing at least 10 lbs. If the weight is not coming off add some aerobic work on your non circuit days and reduce your food intake.
It works, you are wonderful – keep it going because without your website I would have given up. Many aren’t aware that these levels are off prior to starting hCG because of course they are starting the diet out overweight already. Not sure if that helps, but I REALLY hope you can try to find out what levels are off that is causing these issues for you.
Hubby is amazed at how I look, been with him 16 years and he’s never seen me this small. Need 20 more pounds off, but know now that this really works and I’ve never felt better in my life.
I have two more rounds planned to hit goal, if I want to be even smaller, then I will do another round.
I am 12 no more plus sizes, I don’t fit my size 14, 16-18 wardrobe, my pants fall down and I had to buy new clothes. I paid my doctor over $700.00 and was able to get it from your recommended site for less than 300 ( really good Black Friday sales). I know this won’t be easy but hope to find some support and advice from this community.
