HCG diet?: Not effective per se. It is the paired diet that works! no one needs heavy exercise. Moderate exercise in more frequent doses works well!

Not needed: You could lose one to two pounds of abnormal fat per day. Exercise is not needed. It helps reset the hypothalamus which leads to long lasting results. Weight loss is proportional and body re-sculpts during process. You are not irritable as on regular diets. You must do this diet under supervision of qualified physician.
