  • HCG & Supplements & Medications   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Thanx for the reply Dr Pearsall but are you OK? I posted this question 2 years ago, almost to the day. I've been worried about you! PS I never started the HCG b/c I was waiting for an answer but my god I didn't realize 2 years had gone by! LOL but I do still have it - I guess it's still good... does it expire? Star

    thanks!

  • Nutritional Typing   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Our diet is a mixed type. You may also have gotten sleepy from the wheat in the pizza. Wheat makes me sleep also.

    Avoid it.

    Safety
    On July 30th, 2010 and again on October 1, 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration warned against the use of the product "Miracle Mineral Solution" or "MMS" - which when made up according to instructions produces chlorine dioxide. MMS has been marketed as a treatment for a variety of conditions. The FDA warning told consumers that this industrial bleach can cause serious complications, including severe dehydration, nausea and diarrhea. There have been no reported deaths from use of MMS; however the FDA has received numerous reports of nausea, severe vomiting, and life-threatening low blood pressure caused by dehydration. [22] The makers of MMS do state that nausea and vomiting is a sign that it is working. Licensed medical professionals and toxicologists would not agree with this statement.

  • HCG & Supplements & Medications   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Yes
    Not that I know of.

  • Can I use the Miracle Noodles during the HCG protocol?   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Yes you can. I don't believe one has to be so strict as Simeons food list. All mentioned below are allowable in my opinion.

  • Hair Loss   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Yes it is. I recommend taking 2 whey protein shakes a day and 8 caps of our multi-vitamin to avoid that.

  • Can I have tuna, sea bass, and halibut on the HCG diet?   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Yes you can have tuna as long as is it is not canned in oil.

    As for Sea Bass and Halibut yes you can

  • Can I substitute blueberries for the strawberries?   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Yes. All berries are equal.

  • breaking the diet   12 years 3 weeks ago

    You don't ever have to start over. Just pick up where you left off and know that you may not get as rapid of weight loss but that's ok.

  • organic zero   12 years 3 weeks ago

    Erythritol has very little sweetening power so many people use a ton of it (which will raise blood sugars a bit) and then get the runs. Fine in moderation but I can hardly taste it. I prefer packets of Stevia like Truvia.

  • Do you have to stop with Homeopathic?   12 years 3 weeks ago

    I don't think the issue of immunity is a problem with the homeopathic but I am concerned about the toll it takes on your body to be on 500 calories even though you are supposed to be getting more calories from the fat stores. If you want to do at least protein shakes 3 times a day and you're taking a high potency multi like this one 8 caps a day then it might be ok. I personally don't recommend it. There are some side effects that can develop from long term low calorie diets. http://www.enlita.com/shop/whole-foods-multivitamin-plus-240-tabs-12-mo-supply-p-182.html?zenid=b87653058e0be7e4aa98ff717f454fa2

  • CHAPSTICK - Need substitute or sympathy :)   12 years 3 weeks ago

    It probably won't be a problem. Go ahead and try it. It is concerning that you are a chapstick addict. What is causing the dryness you must ask. Perhaps the lip balm is causing the dryness. Check out this website http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFRJ-FXx_eY

  • Coffee Addiction   12 years 21 weeks ago

    It is okay to have coffee within reason, but I like the resourcefulness of everyone on here. I am fairly new with the company and I am on the diet so I might try some of the tips on here.

  • HCG Diet Detox Program - Week 5   12 years 21 weeks ago

    There should be in the downloads in your account. There is one that brings up an PDF and it has a link to all of our mp3's and PDF's which has from week 1 - 8 on it.

    Please let me know if you find it.

  • Coffee Addiction   12 years 22 weeks ago

    I have a coffee addiction, it's so bad I bought a coffee shop. I have found a new coffee that is non acidic, it is 100% Certified Organic no pesticides or chemicals and it is fused with 100% Certified Organic Ganoderma. You would have to Google Ganoderma to find out more about that, but what it does is make the coffee pH balanced and that goes a long way in keeping the whole body functioning. Also combined with Gano the coffee delivers over 150 anti-oxidants, way more than green tea or just about any other health drink, juice or berry. Although you can get a 100% Certified Organic Green Tea with the Ganoderma. Since I own a coffee shop of course I sell it so although you may consider this an ad my real intention is to share something that can supplement all of our health if we drink coffee. The name of the coffee is Organo Gold and if you want more information http://www.italiancow.organogold.com
    Also I have been doing the HCG for 5 wks now and have dropped 40 lbs and I have a couple of cups of coffee regularly. Good luck to all of you.

  • HCG Diet Detox Program - Week 5   12 years 25 weeks ago

    Hello,

    I never received any emails. What emails are you speaking of? I just went through the HCG diet detox outline that came with the downloads and I have no idea what the lessons are or where I would find them. It also says in there that the cook book should have a Parts to it but I don't have any parts to the little cookbook that I printed off from the downloads that I originally received. I am worried about starting the low starch phase next week as I have received really no information about it other than what I have looked up at other peoples sites on the internet. I am very disappointed in all of this I paid almost $200 dollars and all I have received is a bottle of the Homeopathic HCG, 10 days of ez-slim (very upset about this as it seemed to work and I have had to purchase more to get through) and the original downloads of interviews and the small 500 cal cookbook. Very disappointed.

  • Ganoderma Lucidium   12 years 27 weeks ago

    I weighed 332 lbs when I started the HCG protocol on May 17, 2010.
    On May 23, 2010 I weighed at 315.4, about 16 ½ lbs after 6 days.
    So I guess I got my answer. :D and a delightful reply it was.

  • a glass of wine and/or champagne   12 years 30 weeks ago

    I am on Day 18 of Phase I of the protocol and realized I did not take hcg while I was gorging. I've lost 12.5 lbs since I started the 500 cal diet April 5 but would I have lost more had I take the HCG during my three day gorge?

    Don't know. It takes 3 days for the injections to kick in. We don't know how long it takes for homeopathic to kick in.

    Also, should I stay on the 500 cal diet and continue taking HCG for three additional days and then maintain 500 cal for three days w/o HCG?
    If you wish.

    How do I know if I have wheat allergies?
    You go without wheat for 2 weeks and then eat wheat all day long and see how you feel for 72 hours.

    After the no starch phase am I allowed to eat any bread products such as flax seed bread with net carbs 6 grams for two slices?
    You would do well to continue to keep your carb intake to moderation and eat carbs mostly from produce.

    I will celebrate my 50th Birthday,May 17, three days before I finish Phase II, will I ruin everything if I have a glass of wine and/or champagne or two and flourless chocolate cake? No you won't ruin anything.

    Finally, once I'm off the low starch phase am I allowed to have kidney beans and garbanzo beans? Yes

    I've now got what I need - thank you very much!

  • Can I substitute 1 whole egg and 2 whites for 1/3 c. of prot   12 years 37 weeks ago

    I am wondering how many rice crackers can I substitute on Phase 2 (of the Hcg diet) for the melba toast?
    Substitutions should have comparable carbs counts. You can have 8 rice crackers a day.
    Can I substitute 1 whole egg and 2 whites for 1/3 c. of protein? YES
    If I am going to eat Breakfast on Phase 2. Is it 1/3 c. of protein 3x a day. YES, 3-4 TIMES A DAY.
    If I am going to eat only the lunch and dinner on Phase 2 is it 1/2 c. each of those meals? YES

  • Does the homeopathic HCG trigger cold sores with the arginin   12 years 38 weeks ago

    We have heard of one case of herpes outbreaks with taking the HCG formula. Taking Lysine should help with this.

  • Dr. Pearsall's teleseminar March 1st   12 years 39 weeks ago

    All healing modalities are fine as long as they don't contradict the diet.

  • Dr. Pearsall's teleseminar March 1st   12 years 39 weeks ago

    Great - thank you for the response!
    What about acupuncture? Are there any concerns about that during the HCG protocol?
    BTW - I found the teleseminar last night very useful - thanks for holding them!
