I have three words for you:
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.
Yes, I've reached the point in my "weight loss," which has been more like a giant weight plateau, where I'm ready for a little extra help.
Judge not lest ye be judged, Peeps.
I know there is a lot of flack out there about this diet. But I'm giving it a try. I've read the original manuscript by the doctor who invented this diet, like 50 years ago, and all the work he did fine-tuning it, studying it, trying it out, etc. And I've read about how it works to help your body only pull fat from the right places, how it helps your metabolism fix itself, despite the low calorie diet, and how it should, supposedly, hopefully, keep one from feeling hungry. And I've known dozens of people now who have tried and and lost a lot of weight.
There are people out there who I'm sure are rolling their eyes, gasping in horror, tisking their fingers, and doing all kinds of other shocked-old-lady mannerisms right now. If you're one of those people, I'm sorry. But I've decided to give it a go.
And I've decided to document it. For myself, for you, for anyone out there wondering if it really works and just how well. So feel free to sit back and watch, join in the discussion, ask questions, or tell your own success story.
And check back daily for updates on how it's going!
Hopefully in three weeks, you'll be hearing from me, 13 lbs lighter.
