HCG is a scam and doesn't work anyway; if you're talking about over the counter drops, they're illegal anyway, and just bottles of water. If you're talking about the injections, you should stay far away from any doctor willing to give them to you for weight loss.
Fancy pills and such won't make you lose weight, anyway. You can't reset your metabolism; your body isn't a computer, and it can't be rebooted.
Have you been regularly tracking your food? Start there, and weigh and measure what you eat... yes, all of it. You can't make healthy changes to your diet if you don't know where you are now. If you're estimating, the odds are that you are underestimating how much you're actually eating. I used to think I was pretty good at knowing what I was eating; breaking out the scales and measuring cups was a huge wakeup call for me.
