I came home from the Hospital last night after nearly dying from the HCG diet. I was on the diet for 5 days. Only on the restricted 500 calorie part of the diet for 2 days, after the initial gorge period. I woke in the middle of the night feeling awful. I checked my blood pressure and it was 66/37. I called 911. When the EMT arrived my blood pressure was 55/35. I narrowly escaped death thanks to the quick work of the EMT and emergency room. My veins had already started collapsing. The cardiologist at the hospital told me that people die when their blood pressure gets that low. He also said that I was lucky not to have permanent heart damage. I am 36 and he said the only reason I did not have permanent heart damage was because I was young and healthy. I couldn't believe so much damage could happen in such a short time. He said everyone's body is different on how long a starvation diet can kill them. Anorexia kills people every year with heart failure from the starvation, not necessarily being too thin. The starvation (500 calories) is what dropped my blood pressure to nearly fatale. I beg anyone wanting to try this diet to please learn from my near death experience. I almost killed myself by following this diet exactly and I would have left behind a husband and child whom I love more than anything. Please do not go to these drastic measures, because you may not live to regret it. Thankfully I did live to regret it and regret it I do.

Awesome weight loss! How long did it take you? I made a soup of chicken breast, zucchini, and a tomato with water, italian herbs, salt and pepper, and a dash of dried onion and it was fantastic!!!
