what does a stool of yellow watery mean? i've been fine stool wise all day, and have eaten normal healthy food

Something you ate: didn't agree with you. A single stool of watery yellow has very little clinical significance. Colon transit time determines stool color and consistency. The faster the transit time, the more watery and lighter in color the stool. If the loose stools continue for more than 24 hours or if you see blood in stools you should seek medical attention.

Is there any food or drink that can raise hCG levels?

Not really: If you are referring to the recent "hcg diet", which involves using HCG as well as severe calorie restriction, i would recommend against it. Buying HCG is illegal, (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) and extreme dieting can be very dangerous. It is possible to supplement HCG through consuming your own human placental tissue (placenta pills / placental encapsulation).

Depends.: You need to get your resting metabolism rate checked to see what your rate is. This guideline of everyone eating 2000cal has caused tremendous problems. I check resting rates and most women are between 1100-1500calories and in the rest weight range! so customize this to get the right info.
