There has been no significant sign of weight loss but this can be contributed to the fact that I started my period today, about a week early and it takes a good three days for the HCG to start working on your system. I believe that the hormones in the HCG may be the reason.
The Good: However, I am not experiencing my debilitating cramps (curl up on the floor and cry until someone gives you a pain killer)that I usually have. Instead, it is a more mild pain compared to what I am used to. Also, my sugar cravings have lessened. I also do not feel bloated nor have I gained any of the menstrual weight that I often do.
The Bad:In Pounds and Inches, it is advised that you stop taking the injections/oral drops during this period of time and resume after the cycle is complete. However, you must still remain on the diet.
The Decision: I have decided that I am going to keep taking the drops through the cycle as I do not want to have to wait for them to start working again another three days after the end of it. However, I may not experience any weight loss at this time because of it. But I only need to lose a small amount of weight, so it should be fine.
I also have a fun link if anyone is interested in this and adding other foods to the whole calorie count if they are not going to go bible strict on the original Pound and Inches food list. It is really handy and can be found here...http://www.davidwallace.com/2008/10/hcg-diet-calorie-counter/
