HCG Diet: Day 6

I'm trying to drink 3 liters of water a day.  I'm told that it will help with the fatigue, headache and hunger.  It's funny.  I drink water so that I'm less fatigued.  But, after drinking all of this water it's no surprise that I have to get up multiple times at night.  I am somewhat less hungry and fatigued.  The headache is mild and emotionality is evening out.  I wouldn't be able to do this if I didn't have Doug.  He is quietly filling in when I can't accomplish things. 

The vegetables are the hardest part of the diet for me (besides hunger and general snackiness).  I'm already tired of celery, tomatoes, and lettuce and don't like a lot of the vegetable choices.  I'm hoping I will be able to subsist on asparagus and cabbage.  I'm going to try spinach.  I'd just give up on the vegetables if I didn't know it was important.  Again, the results keep me going. 

Results:  4.6 lbs in the last 2 days.  My handy dandy scale says that is 3% body fat.  My tape measurer shows 2 inches off of my waist.  Pretty cool.


  1. Good job! That is awesome! I lived on cucumbers and zuchinni. I love cabbage too. We used the "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" spray and that helped.

    Try to drink most of your water before 2 pm, and then taper off after that. Don't drink anything 2 hours before bedtime and that will help.

  2. Buy a bag of the baby spinach, put how many ounces you can eat in a bowl, and pour a little apple cider vinegar on it. It's really quite yummy. Also, have you tried grilled asparagus, I love it. You are doing so good. Keep it up!
