I am on the HCG Diet/Injections AND TTC. I started the diet 24 February. I was 245.8 lbs. I am now 220.2 lbs. SO, that is 25.6 lbs in four weeks.
I do injections m/w/f with m/w adding B12 shots.
I DO get BFP for two days after each injection. But, NOT on digis (I guess due to the amount of HCG injected is too low for digis to pick up.) I talked to the doc, and he said, if I get a + digi, he will just send me for consecutive quantitiative Betas.
The HCG shots themselves won't hurt a baby, but the VLCD will. So, if you do end up prego, they have you add 100 cal/day until you are back at your 1800 cal or whatever is best for your size.
I use myfitnesspal.com app to keep track and makes it SUPER easy to track my calories. I follow the diet to the tee and it has been very successful for me.
Like Jenna said though, if you don't keep up with the maintenance program, you WILL rapidly gain the weight back! I personally don't have any hunger, so I find it super easy to follow. I don't feel deprived at all. I even manage to still go out to eat and just do things that work for me.
I am back down to lower then I was when I got pregnant with DD. But, I would ideally like to do two more rounds before I conceive.
Women typically loose 5-7 lbs /week on this. (Averaged out) The more you weigh, the more you will loose quickly. However, you HAVE to follow the protocol. This is no easy quick fix.
Week 1: 11 lbs
Week 2: 5 lbs
Week 3: 4 lbs.
Week 4: 5 lbs.
I just started week 5 today.
Me 30 + DH 28 = 3/29/2010
