About to start HCG
I live in the UK where the HCG protocol is not really over here yet. I have done some research on it , but there seems to be some conflictiing advice all over the internet, so I would be grateful for some help.
I am going to use the drops and will be 'loading' on Sunday and Monday 2/3 Jan ( as the shops are open for luverly cakes and chocolate :-) )
So here goes;
Do I load for 2 days or 3?
Do I eat cakes, chocolate, Mcdonalds ice cream etc.. (anything else?)
Can I eat the same meal for lunch as well as dinner?
How much veggies can I have with my 100g protein?
Can I mix veggies in a meal?
Am I likely to be starving hungry?
I will be on the 42 days protocol. Do I stop the drops on the 39th Day?
How long do I have to wait to start again?
How long do I keep drops under my tongue for?
Is phase one (I think) the colon cleanse necessary?
Phase 3 is back to 1500 calories per day , but no starch or sugar for three weeks. Is that right?
After 3 weeks, what can I eat then? Looking at the forum, there seems to be a few regaining wight through eating normally?
Stevia is banned in the UK, what else can I use?
What can I use to flavour my water? ( I cannot drink plain water all the time)
Sorry for all the questions, but I have little time to get this right

You have a tall order of questions and I would love to help but gotta get some errands done. There is a group starting Jan 1/2 so find that thread.
I suggest loading low carb, high fat...not high carb. But that is just me
You load for 2 days but it wont be the end of the world if you happen to load 3!
I am wondering why Stevia is banned? That was odd to read.
Hopefully others can help you get these answered...

Absolutely no cakes, McD ice cream, or chocolate. (this question tells me you haven't read the manuscript, and you really need to do it.)
The company where you buy the drops will have instructions on how long to keep under the tongue. The drops I had were to be under the tongue for 2 minutes, no coffee for 30 minutes before or after. Morning drops taken before brushing teeth, and wait 30 minutes until after drops are gone to brush teeth. Also, no food or drink for 15 minutes before or after drops.
You don't go back to regular food whole hog after stopping the drops. You add back fats, proteins, vegetables, and some fruits. People like me added back too much, too quickly, and yo-yod a lot. The second 3 weeks you can add back starches and sugars, but you must weigh daily.
According to the manuscript you can start a second round after 6 weeks.
