What is the accurate dosing for HCG 23 day diet plan?

What is the accurate dosing for HCG 23 day diet plan?

HCGdiet looks unsafe: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

34 day cycle, 0.7 mnl/l progesterone on day 23.. Day 28 going for testing can I still ovulate. Can preseed help. How to lose weight?  Diet meal plan

Ovulation problems: Your Progesterone should rise a week after ovulation and a week before the period starts. It is possible you may have ovulated late though it is not possible to determine from the information you have provided. Preseed is a great lubricant to use since it is not toxic to sperm but it will not help you ovulate. ...Read more

210pounds 5^2 21yrs old. Considering the 400(or600) calories a day diet. Nutritional diet plan?

Not enough calories: If you drop caloric intake too drastically - you will actually eat up a lot of muscle and drop your metabolic rate. This is NOT a healthy way to lose weight. Consider working with a nutritionist so that you can do this in a healthy way. Take care. ...Read more

Dose the hCG diet prevent starvation mode?

Dose the hCG diet prevent starvation mode?

I'm 9 wks pregnant & vegan & have high B12 stores (supplements).I stopped taking B12 for a week to reduce levels. Does fetus access intake or stores?

I'm 9 wks pregnant & vegan & have high B12 stores (supplements).I stopped taking B12 for a week to reduce levels. Does fetus access intake or stores?

Stores: Liver stores about a year's worth of B12 in some one with normal B12 levels. However, B12 is not the only nutrient to be concerned about as a vegan, You should take at least Vitamin D supplement in addition to B12. However, It is imperative that you discuss any medications, including non-prescription medications with your doctor. Wish you good health and a healthy baby. ...Read more

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

May not need: If beta HCG is dropping you likely are already having a miscarriage. Most physicians aren't recommending using Cytotec (misoprostol) alone to terminate a pregnancy. Most mds will provide Mifepristone combined with cytotec (misoprostol). I realize that some women will obtain Cytotec (misoprostol) in mexico or on-line and use at home without a doctor. This isn't safe. See a md if you need assistance with terminating a pregnancy. ...Read more

Follow healthy diet (1200 cals), exercise 6 hrs a week (weights and cardio) but struggle 2 lose weight (hormones & insulin fine).Could it be femodene?

Follow healthy diet (1200 cals), exercise 6 hrs a week (weights and cardio) but struggle 2 lose weight (hormones & insulin fine).Could it be femodene?

Possible, but: It may be that even 1200 calories is too much for you, depending upon your height. The shorter you are, the fewer calories you require. It takes 3500 calories burned off that you don't eat in order to lose one pound. You could also be calculating your calories incorrectly. Check w/a registered dietitian. ...Read more

Can taking hCG diet drops affect fertility at all?

Can taking hCG diet drops affect fertility at all?

Drops worthless: Drops are worthless. You need a qualified physician to administer correctly the injection HCG and the original 500 calorie diet with strict adherence. The diet only works on abnormal fat and once you rid yourself of abnormal fat you will not lose any more weight on the HCG diet. Weightloss will actually improve fertility. ...Read more
