    Hello anik,

    I've been doing the hcg diet. so far I have done two rounds and have started my third round saturday on Christmas! What a load day!

    Anyway, came accross your post and wanted to help you as I've helped nearly 30 plus people do and succeed with this diet.

    A couple of questions to accuratley assist you. you said you were vegetarian, yes? and would like to do this indian style, right? I need to know more of what the indian diet consists of first. give me a low down on what the indian diet consist of and I'll guide you from there.

    Can't wait to get you started! I'm glad I decided to read the form.... lol

    Actually, a typical Indian Vegetarian diet IS low calorie. So, he would lose weight by simply not cheating. What needs to be cut out, is the 'sweets'. The typical Punjabi diet is Tofu, Legumes and lots of Vegetables in a tomato type sauce. I'm actually losing weight on the Punjabi diet.

    Hcg diet, however, does scare me a little. The truly best way to lose weight is by changing you diet permanently and exercising. The link hashes out the pros and cons of the Hcg diet. Isn't something I'd dare get involved with, personally, but if its working for you, great.

    Medical Science still says that the body is healthier when we only lose 1 - 2 pounds a week. And, from the Weight Lifters Journal, we can actually burn calories up to 8 hours after an intense weight lifting session. No pill needed here, only a 30 second rest between sets.

    Can one of you explain this Hcg diet? I looks like you have to take hormone shots - is that correct?

    Yes, you would be taking hormone shots.

    ~*~ ~*~ ~*~

    In case people want this info, as this relates to diet and losing weight:

    To loose weight the healthy way, as recommended by the Medical Science community, for person of average health (do clear all exercise/diet regiments with your doctor first! Thanks!):

    Choose 7 different exercises, 5 of them with weights, 2 of them Stomach crunches (not sit-ups).

    A Set is a group of reps. A Rep is one complete motion of the exercise.

    Do 10 reps for 1 exercise. This is Set 1.
    Rest 30 - 45 seconds,
    Repeat. This is Set 2.
    (May rest for up to 2 minutes, if need be. )

    Repeat the above with all 7 exercises.
    EXCEPT: Between exercises, rest an extra 30 seconds.


    Vegetables are free foods. You can eat as much as these as you want.
    Fruits: Limit to 3 times a day, of correct portion amounts.

    Protein: Soy, Quinoa, Beans all contain lots of protein. So, you can limit meats, chicken, animal anything and lose more weight.

    Carbs: You want whole grain carbs and complex carbs. But, you want to be tested for Celiac BEFORE you give up Whole Wheat. I highly recommend this test as gluten causes bloating and other health issues which if left undiagnosed, can be serious. 1 in 30 people have Celiac and don't know it. These are medical science's numbers, not mine. Sorry, can't find the link right now. It will help you lose weight too.

    Olive Oil: This is a healthy oil which everything should be cooked in. Why? I actually lowered my blood pressure doing this. The upper numbers was 120 but is now 90. This was achieved in 6 months time. Be forewarned: Seroquel raised Triglyceroides to a dangerous level. Only 1 medication actually works with triglyceroides (I'm allergic to it.) If you have a Shellfish or fish allergy, you may not be able to take the med, I'm not sure, as I don't know what I was reacting to. (I have many allergies/intoelrances).

    Your body will absorb more calcium if you go Vegan AND eat Broccoli, Kale both excellent sources of Calcium. Your body actually digests calcium better from Vegetables then it does dairy.

    I'm NOT a Peta person! And do NOT support them per se. I just saw too many Diabetics die, lose eye sights, have kidney issues and did not find any diabetic who didn't have such issues. (I know or knew 9 people. 2 died.)

    Diabetic? Read Dr. Neal Barnard's book on reversing diabetes. They did a study and proved that diabetics who went Vegan actually improved their health, had to reduce their meds (and most had to quit their insulin meds). They also had no kidney damage. The other groups had some to much kidney damage, especially those who ate the ADA typical diet of red meats and chicken.

    Thats it from me. I hope someone finds this useful.

    Sorry "Allergic Vegetatrian"

    but the discription of the HCG diet you provided was incorrect. There are a mutlitude of interpretations of this diet, however, the correct and original diet came from dr Simmeons. This diet was developed in 1940 by this doctor in Italy.

    In reference to the question above, yes hormones are involved and they can either be injected, or placed sublinqualy. There is a specific list of foods to eat and they are restricted to only certain vegetables NOT "UNLIMITED" and lean meat of chicken, fish or beef. The basic principle is NO SUGAR AND STARCHES of any kind are allowed until the final phase of this diet.

    I've lost 70 pounds and have kept it off since last June!!

    No exercise is actually permitted unless you have been doing an exercise regime already.

    If you would like the original protocol to this diet I would love to share it with you. emal me your email address at: and I'll give you the protocol. It will describe everything you need to know about the diet. How it works, what to do and most importantly what to eat.

    Be aware that many people have adapted the original protocol from Dr Simmeons and have let people to unsuccessful results.

    To loose weight the healthy way, as recommended by the Medical Science community, for person of average health (do clear all exercise/diet regiments with your doctor first! Thanks!):

    1) I must apologize for not putting "Medical Science Community" in bold. Apparently, you missed that sentence. I never said it was the HCG diet. I wasn't attempting to describe the HCG diet. What I gave was the diet that is considered healthy according to the medical community.
    Vegetables are low calorie and will not cause you to gain weight, UNLESS you are allergic. However, Beans can causes bloating, so these may need to be avoided. People who are sensitive to a particular food or food family, may have bloating as a side effect.

    I'm glad it helped you lose weight. I just can't recommend no exercise and low to no carbs for most people. Not everyone can live on such a diet healthily. Hospitals have seen people come in very ill on such a diet. Yes, its not everyone. My point is no two people are the same and only their family doctor can really determine with any certainty if a particular diet would be suitable for the person.

    Actually, a typical Indian Vegetarian diet IS low calorie. So, he would lose weight by simply not cheating. What needs to be cut out, is the 'sweets'. The typical Punjabi diet is Tofu, Legumes and lots of Vegetables in a tomato type sauce. I'm actually losing weight on the Punjabi diet.

    This too, was not about the HCG diet. It was a matter of fact. If you eat Punjabi and avoid the sweets, you will lose weight as their diet is low fat, and does not include animal meats or fishes. They are Vegetarians. This is strictly the Punjabi diet and not the other Indian diets.

    2) And, my exercise, diet routine was NOT the HCG diet. All I did was provide a link to a site that discussed the HCG, and say that injections can be had. The link only hashed out the pros and cons of the diet.

    3) Since when is avoiding exercise a healthy thing when we all know that the heart requires exercise of a certain nature in order to keep it healthy? Even walking is considered good for the heart. There are medical exceptions, i.e. wheelchair bound, and other physical issues. Often, water therapy is recommended. Again, there are exceptions, where someone may be required to not exercise at all.

    4) My opinion is to see your doctor before starting any program to lose weight. There are many diets out there that has been successful. However, only an expert examination can tell you how much damage a particular diet does to you, or may do to you. This would include a examination of the vitamins and minerals in your blood to determine what may be anemic in you. The established Medical Science way to lose weight is still and has been for a very long time to lose no more than 2 pounds a week using proper healthy diet and exercise. This has been proven to stress out the body the least.

    This means more vegetables, eating only complex carbs, no sugar and other carbs. Usually, they will limit your red meats, and have you eat low fat chicken or fish. Personally, I've found the Vegetarian diet to work best for weight loss, as its naturally low in calories and gives me all the proteins, vitamins and minerals I need. However, any diet can help you lose weight, but without a change in habits, you will gain that weight back.

    Lastly, I knew a person who went low carbs and became extremely ill, and landed in the hospital. She was on the Atkins diet. A healthy diet includes a wide variety of vegetables, a healthy amount of good carbs, and proteins. No carbs is dangerous in many cases, but it does depend on the person's DNA. I forget what the disorder is now, but there actually is a disorder where carbs are to be limited severely because their body does not have what it takes to digest those carbs. (I only read about this yesterday too! icon_rolleyes.gif ) I believe its related to G6PD and Sulfite allergies, but not necessarily those disorders themselves.

    Thanks for allowing me to clear up what I meant. icon_biggrin.gif Again, I'm glad the diet worked for you.

    You can also take homeopathic HCG (that's what I'm doing) and it's much easier than shots.

    I'm not sure of any Indian recipes for HCG but it's not too hard to come up with recipes or alter recipes to fit the diet. It's mostly about eating certain foods in minimal amounts.
