Missy, I'm so glad you found your way here. Let me try to answer your quseniots.First, the six individual tests in the Leptin Panel are what you should ask your doctor for, in addition to an A1c, fasting glucose, Lipid Panel (four tests in that: Total Cholesterol, HDL, LDL and Triglycerides), and finally, Vitamin D. These 10 tests will open a window into your metabolism and show exactly where it is broken. Look for a private email from me about helping you evaluate the results.Second, the reason you're struggling on HCG right now has nothing to do with will power and in fact will power has absolutely nothing to do with gaining OR losing weight. That is completely controlled by your metabolic hormones, and if the signaling between them has broken down you cannot lose fat. You can lose weight, as you have, by starving yourself (the HCG, as you now know, does nothing whatsoever), but you haven't lost much fat. Every time you went on a round of HCG, you lost muscle mass. Because you ate so little for such a long time, you also went into starvation mode, designed by evolution to keep our species alive in hard times. When that happens your brain sends signals to your metabolic hormones to slow everything down. So you're probably also hypothyroid as a result.The problem is, once you've gone into starvation mode, the body is then primed to store almost everything you eat after that as FAT. So with each round of HCG you did, you lost more muscle and gained more fat. This made your initial insulin resistance the reason you got fat to begin with worse. That's why very insulin resistant people blog about how subsequent HCG rounds don't work. They never really worked to begin with, and now things have gotten worse. This is now exactly what's happening to your friends at work, even though you can't see it on the outside. The fix the only fix is to get to the root cause of the overweight problem and heal it once and for all. People who have a normal working metabolism never have to diet, even when they eat five times as much as you do now.Third, the key to raising slim children with healthy metabolisms is to feed them lots of good whole foods. That means actually cooking, and not buying processed foods. Which, I admit, is tough in this society. But it can be done, as I did with my son, who is now 25, 6 foot tall, and weighs 150 pounds with seven percent body fat.Specifically, this means a cooked breakfast of bacon or sausage and eggs and cheese and heavy cream, with whole milk to drink. No cereals or fruit juices of any time. Whole wheat bread toast is fine, as long as each slice has enough good butter on it to leave toothmarks in the bite! It means whole wheat sandwiches for lunch, with either lots of mayo and non-honeyed, non-sugared cold cuts, or no-sugar peanut butter and no-sugar fruit jam, along with carrot or celery sticks and a tasty no-sugar yogurt or sour cream dip. It means steaks and fish and burgers for dinner with lots of butter over everything, and pureed with heavy cream veggies as well as roasted veggies and baked potatoes with tons of butter and sour cream on it. Berries of all kinds served with home-made, no-sugar whipped cream for desserts, as well as cookies like homemade shortbread using light molasses for sweeteners, or wonderful olive oil orange cake, or homemade ice cream made with heavy cream, lots of egg yolks and bananas for sweetener. Low Sugar ketchup (Heinz makes a great one) on the occasional french fries, fried in coconut oil or lard. In other words, about a 180 degree turn from what you're probably doing now. Your children will never be hungry after eating all that, will learn to cook with you in the kitchen, will be slim the rest of their lives if they eat this way, and will have more energy and alertness at school than they ever had.You'll probably need to toss out most of what is in your kitchen now, and learn to read every label so nothing you buy has any sugar in any form on the ingredient list. If you don't cook now, you'll have to start, but that can be fun if you do it with your children. And you'll undoubtedly catch grief from your pediatrician, so do some research of your own into the benefits of eating a sugar-free, fat-filled diet. Best wishes,SugarFree
