HCG Drops Targetted by FDA

January 3, 2012
The FDA has issued seven warning letters to companies marketing HCG products labelled as homeopathic for weight loss. 

The FDA threat has already affected the availability of HCG drops from a number of manufacturers fearful of being fined by the FDA for "false claims" that homeopathic HCG helps in weight control. 

I won't go into all the details here, but the effectiveness of HCG drops, at least those from recommended companies, is unquestionable. I have seen dozens of successes with people I'v...

I know. The holidays are coming and this time of year is a traditional time for overindulgence. Even our best intentions sometimes fall by the wayside.

I've done it and you can, too. 

I  got rid of 100 pounds of unwanted fat in 9 months with HCG and the accompanying diet. You can read all about it in my book, The Super Simple HCG Diet.

500 reasons to dry brush

October 21, 2011

If you’ve never dry brushed your body, you’re missing out on a sensual delight as well as an opportunity to do your body a big favor.

Skin tightening

As most of you know, I recently got rid of 100 unwanted pounds of fat with a modified version of the HCG diet. If you know someone who has lost a great deal of weight, you’ll know that most of them have very bagg...

I did it! I've now shed 100 pounds. I can't begin to tell you how good this feels on every level of my being. 

Let me try: The other day I was carrying a 44-pound bag of dog food up the stairs. Now needless to say, I wasn't very happy about it. Who would be? Then suddenly I realized just nine months ago, I was carrying 2.5 times (give or take) the weight of that bag on my body, lugging it around with every step I took. No wonder my energy is so good. -I don't have to haul around all that extra...

Nearing my goal!

July 7, 2011
Just 8 pounds to go-- I am about to reach my goal weight of -100 pounds. It's been just over 8 months. I am so excited!
I'm now preparing to enter Phase 3 where I will stop the HCG and increase calorie count to what's correct for my goal weight (about 1700 calories a day) while I continue to nearly no carb for three more weeks. This will re-set my hypothalamus to keep me at my goal weight as long as I am reasonable about what I eat. More reflections later. Look for new photo to be on the cover...

I love belts!

May 20, 2011
Until a couple of months ago, I hadn't owned a belt for 20 years--not coincidentally when I began to pile on the pounds post-menopause. I certainly didn't want to draw attention to that bulging waist. 

Then the day came when I feel adventuresome enough to buy a belt. At that point, I had probably dropped about 50 pounds of unwanted fat. Off I went to my favorite thrift store and picked out a belt. It wasn't just any belt. It was a  "LOOK AT MY WAIST!" cowgirl belt replete with silver conchos. ...

81 pounds and counting!

May 17, 2011
I'm sorry to have been so long without posting. Family crises have absorbed a great deal of time and energy for the past month. I really appreciate all of your e-mails and comments. Keep them coming!

I'm now down 81 pounds and still going. I think I will probably be where I'd like to be in another 19 pounds, but, as I've always said, I'm going for at least 100 pounds and after that I'll assess whether or how much farther I want to go. I'll post photos soon.

Funny story: Last night, my best frie...

75 Pounds! Whoopeeeeeee!

April 13, 2011
I have hit the 75-pound mark and still going strong. Im planning to go another 40 pounds at least. 

Thanks to all of you who have contacted me with questions and support. I hope I've been able to help. I am considering forming a Yahoo or Google group for discussion purposes. Would this be helpful? Please contact me and let me know. 

Also, I've just figured out how to add a comments button here, so that give you another chance to share your experiences. 

Be Well,

Traveling with the HCG Diet

March 21, 2011
I'm just back from a nine-day trip to California and I am pleased to say I still was able to shed three pounds, despite some unavoidable slippage. I consider that a major victory considering that keeping my eating on track was difficult, especially during the time I was in a hotel room and attending business functions.

How did I do it? Planning, planning, planning. My dear friend Eleanor, who has been in food addiction recovery for ten years, shared some helpful ways to get organized. her majo...
