Seems okay: It appears to be a whey-protein supplement with creatine, and thus safe. I'm glad you're pursuing a fitness goal like this, and that you are doing this rather than using anabolic steroids. My friends who lift often use a protein powder and/or creatine with good results; everyone i know who's tried steroids has been sorry.

Is there any food or drink that can raise hCG levels?

Not really: If you are referring to the recent "hcg diet", which involves using HCG as well as severe calorie restriction, i would recommend against it. Buying HCG is illegal, (http://www.Fda.Gov/forconsumers/consumerupdates/ucm281333.Htm) and extreme dieting can be very dangerous. It is possible to supplement HCG through consuming your own human placental tissue (placenta pills / placental encapsulation).

Depends.: You need to get your resting metabolism rate checked to see what your rate is. This guideline of everyone eating 2000cal has caused tremendous problems. I check resting rates and most women are between 1100-1500calories and in the rest weight range! so customize this to get the right info.

NO: Pinworm treatment is pretty straight (pardon the pun) forward. Usually 1 dose of medication, followed in a week by another dose. Sweets should do nothing.
