By the first week of hcg, you can expect to lose around 7-10 lbs including the loading days. Some report losing even 11 lbs. Once the Phase 2 of hcg diet program begins, you might feel hungry in the initial week. Few report mild side effects such as headache, nausea, anger, irritative mood levels etc. However, it fades away once hcg gets adjusted in the system.
In fact, there are many users who have not felt any side effects at all and have completed it successfully.
The key is to stay motivated and indulge in many creative recipes that can be prepared using the approved list of foods that too within 500 calories. 🙂
