Not recommended: Homeopathic HCG was taken off the market in december 2011. The fda and ftc issued warning letters to multiple companies selling these products for making unsubstantiated claims. http://tinyurl.com/mqklddh homeopathic HCG differs from products given by injection, which are still on the market. Besides the daily injections, a 500 calorie diet is also required. The HCG supposedly prevents hunger.
