I've been approached constantly at my place of employment, around town and generally where ever I may be out and about, people inquiring how I did it? Did what? Eradicate weight, totally and permanently. It was a combination of things, but I believe the biggest contributor to my weight eradication was determination and endurance. No matter what diet you plan to follow, you have to do it. You are the key to success, not your doctor or eating plan, but you.
Recently a friend related that there's not much we can control, except for the physical shape we're in. I concur. Eating healthy, exercising, getting enough sleep, not smoking, drinking moderately and taking supplements should be a part of everyone's life, and you should find out what works for you. We are not all the same, no matter what people try to force us to believe, we're different, our bodies react differently to varied stimuli and it's a process of trial and error.
The HCG diet works, any diet works...as long as you comply. What's different about HCG is from where the weight is eradicated. Heavy thighs? No problem...with HCG the thighs melt away. Big belly...again, not a problem...HCG will flatten that tummy within weeks. ONE CATCH! You have to strictly follow the eating plan. The right portions and the selected foods and prepared the way you're supposed to eat them!
Every day for a while, I'll include a recipe from the HCG Gourmet Cookbook. Try these out, see if you like them, find out if it's something you can stick with. How bad do you want it?
