HCG We Shall See

Monday, March 19, 2012

Hello everybody!

4 days ago I started HCG (well a brand sold at Walmart ) drops .

I have not counted steps or even bothered working out much except

for minor walking. I will do my weigh in and let everyone know how

well it has worked for me eating what I want and just using the drops.

IF it does some good(1 or 2 pounds would be good) then I plan on calorie

counting and trying that with more exercise for a week and update my

blog on it as well.


My wife is having a hysterectomy or however you spell it day after

tomorrow... I think this has had me down a bit and worried some.

I know things will work out. Her mother and father are coming up and will

be helping me take care of her. Then after 2 weeks we will return her mum to

North Carolina and stay at a retreat in the mountains for 12 more days.

This will be wonderful and a treat to say the least. Her parents are not rich

but work for a retreat company hehe thus the free stay!

    Be careful of the HCG diet. I have heard too many bad things about it to do it myself. If you are only doing the 500 calorie diet, it is dangerous to your health, the body needs minimal 1200 calories to function healthy. I at one point was going to try it. But my doctor advised against it, He said HCG actually has no good effects for the body. Yes it curves the appetite, but you lose weight bc your only eating 500 calories. But this is considered a starvation mode. And a short-term fix. Please be careful of this.

    I'M SURE EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE WITH YOUR WIFE CHRIS... BUT IT SURE WILL BE NICE FOR HER TO GO TO THE RETREAT AND GET SOME PAMPERING..... AS FOR THE DROPS...... THERE IS NO EASY WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT. EXCEPT EXERCISE AND EATING RIGHT... SURE IT MIGHT HELP YOU LOSE SOME... BUT IT'S NOT THE KIND OF WEIGHT THAT WILL STAY OFF... AND SOON YOU WILL GAIN IT BACK..... I KNOW WE ALL WOULD LIKE A EASY WAY TO LOSE WEIGHT... BUT HARD WORK.... CHANGING YOUR LIFESTYLE OF EATING AND GETTING MORE EXERCISE IS TRULY THE ONLY WAY...... GOOD LUCK...

  The HCG diet is a scam.

The FDA made selling over-the-counter HCG products illegal, but unfortunately, some stores are still selling it. Here is a link to the FDA announcement. If you print it out and show it to the people at Walmart, maybe you can make them give you a refund.

HCG Diet Products Are Illegal

http://www.fda.gov/F
orConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm
281333.htm

The only reason people lose weight on that plan is you are only allowed to eat 500 calories a day. HCG has been scientifically proven to do NOTHING to help with weight loss or to make it safe to eat only 500 calories a day. It will not protect muscle, reset your metabolism or do anything else the snake oil salesmen that sell it claim. Dr. Simeons was a quack doctor. His "HCG protocol" has absolutely NO scientific backing and is not worth risking your health on.

The HCG diet has been studied by many scientific organizations, and they all concluded that HCG, even the "real" injectable version, is no more effective than a placebo, and eating only 500 calories a day for weeks, as recommended by that plan, can cause more health problems than it solves.

The Spark People coaches have been cautioning members against attempting that diet because it is so dangerous.

I know some people that put their faith in the HCG diet, and became very ill from malnutrition as a result. Then they regained more weight than they lost. Now they wish they never heard of HCG.

    Good Luck, Chris with what you're trying. Be sure to let us know how it works. So sorry your wife needs that surgery - I'll be praying for you all - you, your wife, your kids, the medical folks, and your in-laws. I'm glad they will be coming to help out. Then a 12 days retreat! That's neat!
