I’ve lost 15 pounds on my Most Excellent Menopause Diet Adventure. That’s a turkey! Or 3 bags of sugar! I have a 13 pound cat that I hate to pick up because she’s so heavy. I was dragging more than her around with me all day!!! I’m just sayin’……
Lei’s HCG diet recipe for Ginger Mint Shrimp. Measure out 100 gm raw shrimp (shelled and deveined) and set aside. Slice longitudinally a 2 inch piece of ginger root. Add the ginger, sea salt and pepper to taste, and 1 Tbsp of fresh chopped mint to a cup of water. Simmer the water, ginger, and mint til half the liquid is absorbed. Add the shrimp and cook til just pink. Serve. Pour remaining sauce over microgreens. Enjoy!
Stay tuned for more musings on the first 3 weeks of maintenance – the next stop on my journey. Oh and here it is again:
Big Fat Disclaimer For Obvious Legal Reasons: This diet is not for everyone – you must be followed by an MD or nurse practitioner who prescribe it for you. The FDA has not approved HCG for weight loss (but a physician can prescribe it for this use.) It is rigorous and requires discipline. I am not recommending this to anyone, just passing on my experience as information. Do with it what you will. Talk with your own health care practitioner.
Oh, I have mostly heard of integrative medicine or holistic physicians prescribing this. Just like with bioidentical hormones. To find a practitioner near you, check out American Holistic Medical Association or Women in Balance . Okay, enough with the disclaimer. You’re women. You’re smart and can think for yourself.
