Hi guys, it’s Misha Almira from Mishalmira.com. I’m checking in today because I am done with my HCG round and I lost 40 pounds, so I’m very happy about the results. I took B12 while I was doing the rounds, so my energy was better this time, than other previous rounds.
I did sublingual drops, and I’m putting links below and in this post. So you can see where I got that and also putting Dr. Simeons and I always recommend I’m doing HCG 2.0 or was but I also always recommend people to read the Dr. simeon’s guidebook.
The HCG 2.0 is the modern version of that. But I think that reading the original is a good foundation and gives you a lot of information about it, how it works and where it originated from. So I always think that’s a good plan. I did a longer round of 50 days. I could have gone longer, but losing 40 pounds was enough for me.
I would have lost more but I did have cheat days which were accidental. I didn’t realize that something that I was drinking had sugar in it, or had a hidden sweetener. That’s definitely something to be aware of.
You want to be sure you look at all the labels of ingredients. I even had miso soup, thinking it was okay, but it actually contains starches. It was a few things like that and then a few slip ups with raw food deserts. I should say, what I thought were raw food deserts, that actually had hidden sugars in them.
Things like that will throw you off and it was okay, because I was able to do the 3 day water fast to fix it. The point of saying all of this is, I know I could have had more weight loss, but 40 pounds is a lot. Plus, I lost it in places that are usually hard places to lose like my thighs, hips, lower abdomen and arms.
I will end up doing maintenance and then another round, but I’m getting ready to travel so I’m not going to go straight into that.
I found some herbs that I was taking there for a mind well being and I definitely noticed those assisting me on the hard days. This round, I didn’t have a lot of hard days. I just had one day of being tired and a little grumpy.
This was a pretty, pretty easy round and I didn’t notice a lot of hunger. As I’m going into the maintenance phase, I am doing certain things that will assist me.
I found a few secret ways I can stabilize without any worries. And so I’ll share those in another post. I think one of the important things to work with is, that if you do have a cheat day, just not allowing yourself to go into guilt and shame around it, because that’s part of what I believe needs to be shifted in order to lose the weight for good.
I’m specifically talking about the weight that has collected, for years and years in the body. Not all the weight that we lose is physical. A lot of it is emotional. Guilt and shame are like glue to body weight. If you focus on guilt and shame, the weight will not come off. And so whatever you can do to stay out of guilt, shame and beating yourself up, over not doing it right or making mistakes like that, the easier it will be to lose the stubborn pounds.
The best advice I can give is to be gentle with yourself, celebrate your wins. And if you do have a slip up, you’ve got water fasting and you’ve got going down to one meal a day if you have a plan. You don’t have to beat yourself up over anything.
A lot of people say absolutely don’t cheat on HCG or you’ll go up. And that may be true. What I found is that when you go up after a cheat day, it’s usually water weight. And if you just have a plan and do a fast day, just get right back in it, instead of putting a lot of your energy into beating yourself up. Fire the Inner Bully!!! They are not serving you anymore.
I think this is really important. Also, work with your intentions. At night, as I was falling asleep, I would talk to my body and say, “this is how much weight I want to drop overnight.”
It might sound crazy, but your body listens when you’re speaking, so pay special attention to what you are telling it. Intentions are incredibly powerful. You can use your intentions to work for you, Just communicating with your body can be very effective and healing,
I’ve found a few tricks that I wanted to share with you, so that you don’t have to make some of the mistakes that I’ve made. It doesn’t have to be hard anymore. Go ahead and read that last sentence again and breathe it in.
Lastly, if you feel like you’re not losing as quickly, you can try fasting. I’ve had success with intermittent fasting, or doing one meal a day.
I combined all 500 calories into one meal. If you feel like you’re not losing as much as you’d like, you can also cut out the fruit, and starches.
I’m doing another video to talk about the maintenance and the tricks that I found with that, because I did a few maintenance rounds that were not successful. And I went up and I went down and I went up and I actually ended up resetting my default at a higher weight because I wasn’t able to pull it off.
I’m definitely going to share the tricks that I’ve found. I was able to exercise. I did dance, yoga, and walking. And then I did hiit training yoga, and I would highly recommend hiit training yoga. They have it on dailyom. I think you can also find YouTube videos I did dailyom. But that one was really useful for me because it was just enough to kick in the cardio, but not too much to burn all my calories. So you really want to find that balance and it took me a while to find my own balance.
I was trying to jog for longer, and that kind of kicked me into calorie deficit, which I wasn’t losing as much. So if you can incorporate that hiit training, about 30 minutes 20 to 30 minutes. If it’s if it’s really intense hiit training, then you’d want to do that but the hiit yoga training is good for any level. And it’s just, it’s a very effective way to burn a lot in a short amount of time. So highly recommend that it worked for me, I was able to lose more per day, this round doing that combo.
I also wanted to mention that one of the things I did coming off of HCG, was I dry fasted for a day and a half, and it actually works beautifully.
That was, I did the very low calorie diet for the last two days. And then the first day into maintenance. I did a dry fast. I actually did it for spiritual reasons, but it ended up working really well for the first day of maintenance and it felt really supported. And the transition from HCG into just the regular maintenance diet.
If it resonates with you give it a try. I’d never incorporated dry fasting that closely with HCG, but to me it felt like it was a house cleaning and a reset. And I actually felt like it assisted the hypothalamus and really getting on board with the next phase. And yeah, it to me feels very, very supportive.
Previously, the transition for me was a little rocky, a little rough going from very low calorie with HCG to two days and then like trying to up my calorie, my calories from there.
With the dry fasting, I knew that it would be supported. But I just didn’t know how it would be by going, you know, breaking it and going into the diet but so what I did was I dry fasted, and then the next day, I just did the one meal at night, which I did eggs, and there’s seemed light enough and it seemed like the perfect you know, first meal after the dry fast, I wouldn’t go into having like a steak or you know, meat. If you can help that at all, if you can help that. Try to do something lighter like eggs or just maybe have a little broth and then have your meal.
That is just kind of what I did was just intuitively felt it out. This is something that I’m going to incorporate in between phase two and phase three of HCG 2.0.
This has worked for me, but I’m feel it out for yourself to see if this resonates, if it’s something that you feel like you can do and something that you believe would be supportive, and do it. Now I’m not giving any medical advice at all. And if this feels like something that absolutely doesn’t feel right for your body, then don’t do it. And don’t listen to me.
We all have different bodies and different needs. So I highly recommend you tuning into your own intuition and your own body around this but for me, that’s what it was craving is a complete break and reset to go into the next phase. It was a transition and a reset for my mind and my spirit.
If this is helpful, great, if not, like I said, trust your own intuition, because that’s what’s most important. I want to mention that before I jumped off, but feel free to subscribe to my channel. Thank you for watching.
This is just my experience. I’m not a medical doctor. I’m not a professional. I’m merely sharing what has worked for me. And so I wish you luck on your losses and your success and just thriving.
