It's not easy!!: Hi, the HCG diet is based on about 500 cal/day. The over the counter HCG is not the real hormone, human chorionic gonadotropin, -- a pregnancy hormone.This hormone, hcg, is supposed to cause a decrease in hunger etc. I can't say this is a true statement.I do not have any research articles on the validity of this claim.But, I am concerned about the safety of HCG for patients. Could it potentiate ca?
