HCG diet, HELP!
clarasiig posted:
Hello everybody
I've decided to do the HCG-diet. I've read a lot on the internet, but I still have some unresolved questions. Hope someone in here, could help!
- Is it okay to have diet coke and sparkeling water during VLCD?
- Would it affect my energy-level during school? (I'm a senior, and very ambitiuos)
- Is it ok to eat chewing gum and drink a lot of water?
- Is it possible to swtich out chicken, with some other food?
- Can i use salt and pebber for my chicken?
- How much will HCG reduce my apetite? I'm having a hard time imagine only having 475 calories a day, while feeling constantly hungry.
- Could the increasing level of HCG affect my later possibilities of getting pregnant?
- I've read that there should be no work-out during VLCD - I'm a lifeguard at pur local pool, and i have to stand on my feet 7 hours a day, plus cleaning afterwards - is that ok?
Sorry for the long text and the mistakes in my spelling (I'm Danish).
Hope I can get some answers!

I think I would try a more natural diet such as the McDougall or Fuhrman diet before I decided to use chemical means.You never know what it might be doing to your body.Very low calorie diets can cause all types of damage.

Investigate McDougall/Fuhrman before you decide.
