For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
I have a girlfriend who is dead set on doing the HCG diet. I have looked it up, sent her articles on the dangers of it, and it's falling on deaf ears. Now, I feel like a fool because her slovenly cousins went on it under a doctor's care and have lost 30+ pounds each. The one that was first one it has lost about 40 pounds and went off the "diet" and has kept her weight off for over a year.
Does anyone know of a person who has been on the HCG diet and succesfully kept the weight off after stopping the injections and restricted calories? I'm curious to see what happens when the patients stop using the hormones and go back to "normal" eating.
I know several people who took HCG - they were up on it way before it got popular. It's a scientific method, so it resets something in your body. You have to follow it to the T or you could end up gaining weight during the diet. If you finish the diet successfully you'll lose the weight and keep it off, you may need to do a little "maintenance" every year to keep it up, but you'll definitely lose weight. Also, I know people who've lost 35 lbs then went back on it again to lose another 30 lbs. It definitely works but you have to have the right HCG - there are fakes out here now that it's more popular and it's expensive. But it's worth it. Also, be careful if blood clots run in your family.
first am hearing of it..going to go look it up but the thought of blood clots is scary..
