Absolutely: You must do the diet under supervision of a qualified physician, injectable HCG not drops, and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet and not a modified version of it with higher calories. You can lose 1-2 lbs of fat per day. Stevia and saccharin are the only sweeteners allowed on this diet.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
