HCG is a crock. It's supposedly watered down pregnancy hormone extracted from pregnant women's pee. You lose weight because you're on a 500 calorie fast. They should just call it what it is: a Very Low Calorie Diet.
Pregnant women usually gain weight, not lose it. That's clue #1 that the diet is a sham.
It was a big old whoopde do at my church and everyone was doing it and becoming an "independent distirbutor'. I don't know anyone who who's been on the diet that didn't end up going off of it because they were starving. Whatever weight they lost they gained back within a month.
ANY diet will work if you stick to it, but if you don't have a plan for KEEPING the weight off, you'll just tear your body up with fad yo-yo dieting. If you are going to fast or go on a VLCD, there are healthy ways to do it.
