Speaking of how the body seems to heal itself, I'm beside myself that after 5 years of reflux medication, I have been without for 4 days now. 4 days may not seem like a very long time, but let me tell you what, previously if I missed even one single dose it was the worst experience of my life. It cost me an entire night's sleep and such stomach pa...

I just found an article on the NCBI website (National Center for Biotechnology Information) which, along with the National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of health, released an article in FAVOR of hcg! Quick, everyone go read it before they fire the person with enough gall to publish the truth :-) ncbi-nlm-nih-gov (dashes to dots), click on ...

I found it by using Google. Type exactly: "pounds and inches" simeons in the search box. The very first entry is the protocol available from the hcgdietinfo website, where I copied and pasted the contents into Word. Let me know if you have any troubles!

Welcome to the forum :-) I paid $80 for bloodwork and I pay $63/week for the injections. This is at a local clinic in Southern California. As for if this protocol is right for you, that's something you'll have to decide! Will it work if you follow it? Yes. Can you follow it? It's quite strict. You have to decide how much you are willi...

Here's my story: I have trouble with getting enough liquids. I can't stand plain water, just can't get it down. So, a little while ago I decided to try something strange in order to drink enough liquid. I bought a 1/2 gallon water jug and every morning I put in one of those little powdered kool-aid packets and add 1/4 cup of sugar. I find t...

Wow. I got through almost all of the postings in this forum but I admit I had to skip a few with a lot of capital letters... What I see here is what I've experienced my entire life. I've been morbidly obese for 19 years. I have done darned near every recommended (and some controversial) program by every doctor and every well-meaning thin perso...

Thanks for the encouragement! The clinic gives me a weekly shot combined with B12 (which I was already getting anyway for my pernicious anemia). I was very skeptical at first because I wasn't sure if I would get the same results. But they assured me that if I wasn't happy I could, at any time, switch to the daily shot. So with that they gave me ...

Hello all you wonderful people! Wow, how overwhelming all of this is, emotionally, for me. I just heard about this program for the first time ever about 10 days ago I have been searching the internet about it ever since. I became so excited that today I borrowed the money I needed to get started because I simply didn't want to wait until payday! I am...

I am so darned excited about getting started that I called and moved my appointment up from the 15th to today! I get my blood test results and my first injection on 11/13, my birthday! Happy birthday to me, a new body :-)
