Original email: Good morning, I was wondering if you’ve heard or know anything about doing the hcg injections 3 times a week as opposed to every day. I think it’s usually prescribed this way for males but my doctor said I could use it this way, however, he didn’t have much more info and if you still follow the strict 500 calorie per diet or not..I’m not sure if this would be as beneficial for weight loss or if this is more a “maintenance plan” with healthy eating. please let me know if you know anything/have any experience using the hcg in this way.
My concern with this approach is that hunger levels on a super low calorie diet like the hCG diet really rely on the hCG hormone being at a certain level in your system- both too much and too little actually cause the same feeling of extreme hunger- so my concern with 3 days a week dosing is that sometimes you may have too much in your system and others not enough- just concerned with not having an even level overall of hCG in your system each day. So that’s my input there.
If you do decide to try it out, I’d love to hear how it ends up working out since it’s not common- maybe we’ll be surprised and it works well who knows!
