Do the "lyme diet"... no sugar, no white foods... that'll do it.

I debated on whether to post this but...I gained 40 lbs from being sick with lyme. Once I was better I tried sugar free, white free, exercise -- you name it, it didn't work for me. It was like I was....stuck, like my body was confused.

Now that I am symptom free of lyme, I worked with my LLND and did the HCG diet. I have lost the weight. You might want to google it, and I would recommend it when you are done your lyme treatment & healthy again.

I completely understand!!! Before I knew I was sick I lost 30 lbs in about 6 months...just kept falling off.

As soon as I started treating, I've gained back that plus more. I stopped some other meds-like naproxen and dropped 16 lbs in two weeks but now it's stopped.

I've been trying to lose weight with the diet, and I work a labor job...HA. Still stuck! I'm hoping my body will eventually just kick into gear again and start losing again!

I can relate to the weight loss while sick and weight gain while getting better.

My LLMD suggested the Hcg diet and the shots. Anymore info would be appreciated.

I have just started treatment, but have been on an anti inflammatory diet for several years. I was not loosing weight and so I tried the HCG diet I developed serious Vertigo problems both times I tried the diet. I now believe this may have been a lyme interaction. I would be very careful about trying this diet.

jjb -- I agree, the HCG isn't for someone in the 'throws' of a lyme battle. I was successful in the diet only after I was symptom free & under the approval of my LLND, Dr. N. in San Diego.

I would love to talk more about this medical procedure (it really isn't a diet), but we have friends visiting from the States so I will be without computer access for the next week or so.

I will post links to yahoo groups & blogs that have more detailed info on the HCG diet. In the meantime, please feel free to PM if you would like more info.

Again -- like jjb stated above, you have to be 'healthy' to do the protocol.

I can answer more questions next week. Happy Holidays.

I would recommend signing up for the group and reading the 'Pounds & Inches' document written by the creator of HCG, Dr. Simmons. It explains the protocol in detail and the science behind the diet. Very informative
