I was curious to see what effect losing weight this fast (Rd1: -39lbs/40days; Rd2: -34lbs/40days) would have on my health.
Plus, is HCG healthy or not? Would it wreck my organs?
Well, I’m happy to report my blood numbers have never looked better.
April 2013: last year, after doing ~8months of paleo
October 2013, started HCG Diet
April 2014: two months after finishing 2nd round of diet
Test Name: April 2013 // April 2014
Weight: 290 // 248lbs
Total Cholesterol: 271 // 247
LDL: 151 // 158
HDL: 53 // 57 (higher is better)
Triglycerides: 335 // 159
Apo B: 146 // 109
These are still in the moderate to high category but a huge drop from before.
Important Note: If you check cholesterol immediately after stopping diet, the numbers will look dangerously high. Because so much fat has been lost, tons of fat in the blood stream, will make it seem as if you are ill.
Wait at least 4wks before testing your blood.
This according to Wheat Belly author, Dr. William Davis: LINK
Example: My mother lost weight on hcg, had blood tests done. The numbers were sky high & her regular doctor advised her to take cholesterol lowering medicine. He was unaware she had lost weight. She’s a nurse and has read Wheat Belly. So she did not panic nor take the meds. [Click here to read more, dude...]
