8 days prior: The doubling time of HCG is about 48 hours. Working backwards 600-300-150-75-38 gives 4 doublings therefore about 8 days.

No: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed.
