HCG Protocol

I call it “HCG Lifestyle” because in order to make a lifelong change it should be a lasting change. In my experience, the protocol is a stepping stone for a better way of life.

I will not lie to you… It is hard to face food addiction, muster up self control or change habits. In order to make this stick I had to look at WHY I was treating my body poorly.

Its not a very long read, I remember reading it before bed over the course of a few nights. I found it very helpful to keep on my phone to reference while grocery shopping, for questions, etc.
