Your opinion on HCG diet injections? is it HCG that makes you lose weight or the 500 calorie a day intake? Is it safe to take with wellbutrin (bupropion) & Zoloft

Lo cal diet: Pregnant women have extremely high levels of HCG, yet they gain weight normally. I would not recommend HCG injections for weight loss. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
