HCG Day 1 - Best Diet EVER

Day 1 and 2 of the HCG diet are called "Loading." When you load, you take your HCG (which for me is sublingual, not by injection. Because even using the seringe to mix my HCG concoction almost caused me to pass out) and you gorge on fats to build up your normal fat cells. This is what your body will live off of while it acclimates to the HCG and begins accessing the abnormal fat reserves. According to the diet, (tested through thousands of trials with obese patients) if you don't laod before you start, you find yourself very hungry until several days go by and the HCG kicks in.

And frankly, loading sounded pretty awesome to me.

So.....for breakfast yesterday I ate....

Eggs Benedict
hash browns
a side of pancakes

I really didn't feel hungry at lunch time, so I just had one peanut butter chocolate chip cookie to tide me over until I was hungry enough to go eat again.

At 4pm I had...
A Six Dollar Mushroom Swiss Burger (1/2)
Fried Zucchini Rounds w/ Ranch dipping sauce
and an Oreo milkshake.

At 10pm, I had some dinner. Ish...

A five piece Chicken Fries and 1/2 a coke. Again, I wasn't really hungry.

I know, it sounds totally disgusting. But it was the most fun I've ever had on a diet EVER. Yes, I felt sick. Yes, I don't want to look at food ever again. Yes, I have to do it again today. Yes, the HCG is already kicking in and I didn't really feel hungry all yesterday or today. But still, to have a signed permission slip to eat all the things I never ever eat alone, let alone together, was like my birthday and Christmas combined.

Today on the menu...
Blueberry waffles and bacon
Steak quesadilla, chips and guacamole
Pizza hut PAN pizza with sausage and mushrooms
Lots of coke
and if I can't think of anything else, there's always these delicious ideas from thisiswhyyourefat.com:

Cadbury Creme Eggs Benedict--
Sliced doughnuts topped with brownie mix, melted Cadbury Creme Eggs and frosting, garnished with red sprinkles and served with fried pound cake chunks.

Meta Meat Cake
Four types of sausage, bratwurst, chorizo, ground beef, ground pork, diced ham, Canadian bacon, pepperoni, hickory smoked bacon, hot cappy, queso blanco, provolone and sharp cheddar, wrapped in sausage, bacon and cheese ball dough and baked. Then decorated with American, cheddar squeeze cheese and bacon strips.

Doughnut Upside Down Cake
A bed of brown sugar and butter topped by a layer of 12 mini doughnuts baked inside of cake mix and topped with heavy whipping cream and brown sugar.

Cherpumple Pie
Bottom: pumpkin pie inside a spice cake, middle: apple pie inside a yellow cake, top: cherry pie inside a white cake, all surrounded by cream cheese frosting.

Deviled Corn Dogs
Corndog hotdogs pureed with cheese, mayonnaise and tater tots, then re-baked inside a corndog shell.

Cupcake Kabobs

Oh, I will be crying and starving and miserable day afer tomorrow, I'm sure, when I start the VLCD (very low calorie diet) portion of the diet. But right now, I am in stomach ache heaven.

REVISED: I wrote this post last night before bed. This morning I woke up absolutely disgusted by food. There have been no waffles. There has been no bacon. I forced down half a bowl of mini wheats and now I want to puke. Was it the binging yesterday or the HCG starting to work? I don't know. But today it will actually be hard to force myself to load. UGH.

Also, I didn't know it was possible to gain 1 1/2 lbs in 24 hours. But, trust me, it is.

This is so intriguing! Like driving by a car wreck, you can't help but watch! I can't wait to hear more.

I'm loving that cupcake idea... haha and yes I knew it was possible to gain overnight, unfortunately.

Did you go to your doctor for this? Or is there a special Diet Doctor that you found?

Wow, that is horrible and disgusting.

Vanessa said...

Eat up. Cuz on day 13, you will be pulling your hair out, falling on the floor from starvation.

And yes, I speak from experience.

I appreciate your posting your experiences with this, because now I know I can never do this diet. I'm feeling sick just reading about it.

Plain Jame said...

I have never even heard of that website! That is hysterical, all those pictures... all I have to do is look at a cupcake and I gain a pound. Love my genetics... I cant wait to see how this turns out for you. Good luck!

Oh! I missed this post. No wonder you were sick the next day!! Maybe the "loading" part is designed to turn you off to food...

Nicki said...

That cadbury egg benedict made me sick just looking at it.
