WRONG: U are not supposed to do the HCG diet for more than 6 weeks at a time, I do offer the HCG diet in my office for my pts and u should not stay on it for more than 6 weeks straright, u go off and can restart 6-8 weeks later if someone is telling u to stay on it that long that is unsafe for your health and the best HCG is subq prescribed by a doctor not drops from the internet.
