Expensive junk: If you're getting HCG by injection, you're either getting it on the black market (so who knows what you're injecting into your body), or from a doctor who should have his license revoked. Hct doesn't induce weight loss, and who can afford it the rest of their life even if it did? Anyone can lose weight on a 500 calorie/day diet. No wonder you're hungry. Want to live that way forever?
