there has been lots of debate of the HCG Diet!
some doctors called it a dubious scam and some others support it with dear life. you have got to read the notes from the person who invented this diet:  Dr. Simeon's Protocol.
anyway, i have come to the end of sticking my body with syringe needles and i have lost a  little more than 10 kg, which was wonderful, considering Dr Simeon targeted result of only 7 kg in 30 days.
and owh, before it slips my mind, i have to thank my doctor Dr Nurdiyayana Ihsan who has been monitoring my weight loss and was there to assists me when i reach the plateau, or when my weight wont budge! thanks doc! i owe you my dignity and self respect.
i have been following the link for more info and Valarie has almost complete articles about HCG. big thank you to Valarie too for unselfishly share almost everything you need to know about this wonderful diet.
in three days from now i wont be a "pregnant women" anymore, now that the hormone will be fully purge out of my system, that's a relief - and you know what? i still haven't grow breasts and my facial hair is still intact, sumpah! swear
on the contrary, now that i won't be assisted by the hormone to burn the fat, will i gain weight for phase 3, where i could introduce slowly dairy products like cheese and a little oil into the menu. the food intake could be increase to 1500 gm and i m afraid all those hard dieting would go down the drain with weight gain. gulp!!!!
there are some truth in what the skeptical doctors says: any one who eats only 500 gm of food each day with or without the help of the hormone would loose weight. so what happens if you eat more food? would i gain weight?  takotnyer!
Dr Simeon in his protocol explains "Here too, the explanation is quite simple. During treatment the patient has been only just above the verge of protein deficiency and has had the advantage of protein being fed back into his system from the breakdown of fatty tissue. Once the treatment is over there is no more HCG in the body and this process no longer takes place. Unless an adequate amount of protein is eaten as soon as the treatment is over, protein deficiency is bound to develop, and this inevitably causes the marked retention of water known as hunger- edema. The treatment is very simple. The patient is told to eat two eggs for breakfast and a huge steak for lunch and dinner followed by a large helping of cheese and to phone through the weight the next morning. When these instructions are followed a stunned voice is heard to report that two lbs. have vanished overnight, that the ankles are normal but that sleep was disturbed, owing to an extraordinary need to pass large quantities of water. The patient having learned this lesson usually has no further trouble.
there is no turning back! i will have to persevere and see what happens next. owh my body!

i just can't believe it!
i am only one shot away to complete the session of sticking foreign hormone into my montel, comel cute tummy. 
come sunday i am done with syringe and hormone - owh what a relief! sumpah i swear! 
nevertheless, already by now i felt like a junkie, serious! but the good thing is that the injection into the fatty layer of the gut just below the belly button, leaves no marks at all due to the size of the needle. there was no blood blotch as well. immediately after taking the shot, i could just put on my shirt over the jabbed area and the shirt stays sparkling clean.
having said that, for the following 3 days the existing diet resume while the body detoxs from the HCG. but this is still not the end of the story. so what happens next?
i will have to shift gear to Atkins Diet for the next 3 weeks - just when i began to think that the suffering would finally be over. it is not.
while the good thing is that, the portion of meat and vege doubles to 200gm for lunch and dinner, and i could introduce a little oil into the cooking, just tiny, puny oil - no more! but the bad thing - strictly still no sugar (i use stevia drops into my coffee or ice lemon tea so i am ok) but no carbo and no starch, outch!!! that hurts like hell very much. already there are tears in eyes just thinking of the appetizing char koew tiew or mee mamak or pizza that i missed so very much at this point in time.
to make matters worst, there is an instruction from above for me to be part of the Team Building Workforce which will be carried out in a jungle somewhere in kuala kubu baru next week. "sudah jatuh di timpa tangga, pasu bunga pula menghempap kepala".
Oh my goodness, i just have to carry my entire kitchen to that goddamn place now don't i?

after you get a new body, what do you do?
shopping for new clothing of course. you deserve to change the skin after you have shed 10 kilos. its a celebration. 
call it Narcissism (the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one's own attributes), if you want. i dont give a damn!
anyway, few days ago i went to adidas boutique in Alamanda and there was this one  t-shirt that i fall in love with. it has just the right soft material, colour and design that i have been looking for, but alas, they don't have my size! bloody hell, what so special about this t-shirt is that it uses zipper instead of ordinary button from the neck to the chest. 
i was exasperated, no way am i going to accept the fate without giving it a tenacious fight.
for the past couple of days it has been nagging at me and today immediately after work, i went on a crusade of searching for the much desired outfit. first i went to alikhsan warehouse at the bangi sentral they have the right shirt but shit unfortunately the only one left is under size. i am more determined by now to hunt for it if i have to go to all their outlets and eventually to the supplier. i got the sale person to give me the code number of the item.
without wasting much precious time i race like hooligan to ioi city mall at putrajaya and showed them the code number while crossing my fingers. they looked at the computer and "sir we have one left of your size, do you want it? i grabbed the outfit like it was kin. boy was i lucky cause it was a 30% sale item. the salesman showed me the latest arrival section to somewhat similar pattern in white only slicker! and i wanted that as well for sure.
i went home beaming from ear to ear and felt all the running-around was all worth it!

i thought it was going to be tough cooking for lunch, 
as the matter of fact, it was not. 
on the contrary it was such a pleasure, providing u have everything you need within reach. 
i have saved a lot of time on preparation of my lunch by taking a short cut. no more peeling, cutting, slicing, grinding....know why?
i bought all the spices and ingredients in a bottle - salt n pepper, garlic, ginger, chili flakes, stake marinates all in the powder form and once i weigh the meat either beef, chicken breasts fish or eggs, i just sprinkled those spices on the fillet and in a minute it was ready for either grill, bake, fry or cook without any oil in my Tefal Actifry.
after all, it's only 100 grams of meat and 100 grams of vegetables.
it only took 20 minutes to grill my stake, 15 minutes to bake my fish and chicken breasts and 5 minutes for cooking my vegetables. the result was perfect every time. 
here are the testimonials:

grill chicken breast with broccoli

beef stake with Pok Choy

roast beef

grilled beef with broccoli

what happen?

"What happen?" said the doctor.
there was one time my weight dropped at less than half a kg per day for two consecutive days and the worried doctor was cracking her head dissecting the problem.
After what seem like an hour of interrogation, she decided, " take two fried eggs for breakfast, a couple of fried chicken for lunch and two pieces of chicken in a soup for dinner"
I was not allowed any vegetables, apples and biscuits. no sugar strictly. this is an attempt to  artificially activate the digestive system to burn more fat in the body by cajoling it that there are loads more left unattended.
Are you kidding me? and I was like "thank you, thank you, omg! real delicious food". At the speed of lightning i drove like hell to the nearest Mc D drive-through, cant wait to take a chomp at the crispy but succulent spicy chicken.
And you know what? after the first piece I had to force myself to finish the second piece with much agony. After few weeks of healthy cooking, the oil tastes real bad and awkward on the taste buds. I felt like puking throwing up instantly.
I was waiting for the next day with much anticipation.

apple days

a couple of times, the weight refuse to drop. the readings on the digital weighing machines shows the same result. wtf what?
the agreement upon taking up this program is that i have to report the reading to my doctor everyday in the morning. when the reading stays the same she will be busy giving me instructions. 
she would be more worried that me, but i told her it's ok, it's not a sin when the weight does not drop. at the back of my mind i asked myself, have i come to the plateau? i wanted to loose at least 7 more kilos.
one of the plan is to go on apple day. 
take five apples starting at noon for every two hours and restrict water intake from the usual 3 liters to just only one, the lesser the better. strictly no meat, no vegetables and no jacob's low sodium high fiber biscuits - which tastes like a cut out cardboard, i swear.
Owh! mati la.

as time passes

i started the program on  march, 1st.
For a couple of days during the  loading period, my weight went up from 87kg to 88 kg. i had to wallop splurge on pizza, fried chicken, sausages, cakes, cheese, ice cream and milk.
After 2 weeks it has came down to 80kg losing 7 kg within 14 days. Isn't it great or what?
there are days that it has gone static and my doctor was worried much more than me. she give me suggestions and instructions to follow and viola! it came down the next day.
this diet does not allow you to perform heavy duty exercise or the metabolism would shut down, convenient don't you think?
i am motivated by the fact that eating on time with the portion given you don't feel the hunger pang. i am looking forward to try new menus for lunches and dinners because cooking in my air fryer is such a wonderful experience and the meal turn out perfect every time.
i don't mind the daily injection in the morning anymore, it does not bother me at all by now. i also felt safe that the hormones won't grow breasts on my chest - it's not estrogen.

My routine starts with taking my weight in the morning after easing myself of the liquid and solid wastes.
i would then race to the office to face the day ahead with so much confidence.

My Investment

For fwo goddamn days i had nightmares.
What? hormones of a pregnent women!
The first fear sets in, will i grow breasts? will my voice change and my skin smoother and my moustarch and goatee drop bits by bits - no way. The doctor rest assured me that HCG is not estrogen.
wow! what a big relieve.
The program that i had paid for, costs over a RM1K which i took from a legit medical practitioner uses the injection instead of oral drops. I must confess that I am one that is diffident of needles, no matter how small it is.
OMG! there were 25 syringes to go. the pretty doctor convinced me that i would feel no pain, nevertheless, i had the strong feeling of mampus la aku.
well, true enough the needle, alas was very small and curtail.
regardless, on the first day i  challenged myself and braved administering the injection to the area slightly below the belly button, shockingly it was a breeze. i learned from youtube - to feel no pain simply stretch the skin before injecting the needle into your flesh,
yet, I was shocked to find out that once you stretched the flesh, the needle almost went in by itself, there was only a slight "ant-bite" sensation, no more. man! all that fear boiled down to zilch.
and so i went out on a shopping spree: things that i invested on was:  2 digital weighing machine (one for body weight and the other to weigh meat/vegetables & food), measuring tape, spices like powdered garlic, ginger, paprika, stake marinate, pepper, celtic sea salt. 
i had a choice of buying an electric  grill or an airfryer, but after much thought and comparison, decided on  tefal actifry
naturally, i had to stock up beef, chicken breasts, fish, prawns and variety of vegetables and apples. lots of apples. luckily the pantry in the office has got two fridges and a microwave oven.
the catch is, i have to cook the food myself especially in the office for lunch, i have to weigh 100 gm of meat and 100 gm of vegetable and cook for lunch and dinner.  for lunch i have to cook up a meal and eat it within an hour of lunch break. 
i simply love my actifry. it could fry without oil, grill and cook meal within minutes.
loosing weigt is one thing, but maintaining it is another. the latter proves to  be much difficult.
I am investing for the future.

what HCG Diet Plan is all about

Been looking for a body reshaping program for quite sometime now. i have been asking the slimming centers nearby but the package of using multiple machines comes up to close RM5,000. it takes over a period of three months of twice weekly to complete the sessions.
i have doubts about keeping to the routine.
then, suddently i came across a brochure of a colleque who was on an Atkin Diet because her pressure has shot up to an extreme danger level. it says that u could loose between 0.5 - 2 kg per day by committing to a HCG Dieting Program.
so i googled and found out that HCG is: 

    "Restricting your intake to 500 calories a day isn't healthy," says Pieter Cohen, an assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School. The other part of the diet is daily drops or injections of the pregnancy hormone hCG, which supposedly accelerates weight loss by suppressing appetite and "blasting" fat.
    Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the embryo following implantation

What is the hCG Diet then?

The hCG diet consists of three stages. The hCG Diet stages are:
  • Loading — 2 days of eating fatty, carb-filled foods.
  • Burning — 26 to 43 days of a 500-calorie diet, depending on your goal.
  • Maintenance — 3 weeks of a starch/sugar-free diet.
hCG Lose Weight
The loading stage requires that you begin taking the hCG and load with foods that are high in carbohydrates and fats. This is done so that your body will begin to adapt to the effects of the hCG.
In the burning stage you begin the VLCD (very-low calorie diet, this diet is outlined in the hCG Meal Plan section) while continuing with the drops or injection.
The maintenance stage requires that you not eat any sugar or starches for 3 weeks.

take a look at me now

Have you ever waken up one day in the morning and viewed yourself in a looking mirror and suddenly wondered who that person looking right back at you was? 
OMG, The sight was sooooo very disgusting. that was definitely not me. i looked much better that that, really! 
Just look at that figure, it was like something not right at the hormones development department, that could have caused primarily not by genes, but endocrine disorders, medications, or mental and bodily illness. 
Having said that, you climbed back to bed trying to resume sleep but  alas! you knew you have only two choices: dream on and view yourself having a figure as 20 years ago, still, or wake up and do something about it. And real quick too! 
When you are in a business of public or customer relations or lecturing, coaching or mentoring, it helps a lot if you have a total package, i guess you know what i mean. i just what to share my journey of committing into a dieting program which unbelievably works.
Well at least it works for me!
