You may do well trying 5HTP. I started using it for headaches, lost 21 pounds and actually had to stop taking it because I was getting too skinny. My husband then began taking it and he has lost 12 pounds so far. I hope this helps. Good luck!
Just a quick note to say hi!
LP- drink lots of water. I've been on the HCG diet since Feb 13,10. I weight all my foods and drink lots of water. I find it easier to drink water if I have a straw. It's get better- hang in there!
