  1. Hi Beth,

    I just found you via a search. Today is my first day on HCG - not the loading day obviously. I'm very hungry. I was told I wouldn't be hungry - but I feel like I'm starving all day. Do you know why we can't eat like 700 calories a day instead of 500? Wouldn't we still lose weight, just less of it?

  2. typically you will have hunger for the first 3 or 4 days. A lot of it depends on what you loaded with the first two days before starting the low calorie diet. I would not try to increase your calories at all.
