After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off ? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?
You can't!: The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way way you were before. That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes, but: The diet has been tested and even dr. Oz withdrew his support for it.. The diet is extreme and unhealthy and may cause nutritional deficiencies that can even cause depression.

Waist fat: If you have fat especially around your waist, it's a cue to look at the kind of food you're eating. You may be eating more processed foods and sugars than your body is good with, or drinking more alcohol too. There are no pills for spot reduction around the waist. Instead you need an entire food and exercise program to make overall changes in your body. Sorry! nutritionists & trainers can help. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can u take Alli and hCG drops together then take a multivitamin at bedtime. Of course i plan to diet and exercise. Im pretty much obese?
Yes: Sure you can. It is not clear that HCG is absorbed and functional when taken orally. Probably not. Alli does work and does so by blocking fat absorption. Be careful of your fat intake because it can cause abdomnial cramps, etc. That said you will absorb most of the vitamins except the fat soluble ones. Vitamins a, d, e and k should be taken at another time so you can absorb them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Info abou the hCG diet, and after yoy reach your goal weight do u continue the drops and do you continue eating just 500 calories?
HCG weight loss: No one can survive really on a 500 calorie diet (at least not happily or for long ). While on the HCG diet although you consume 500 calories per day, your body is able to derive the rest of it's caloric needs from its extensive fat reserves. Your body burns calories to breathe, for your heart to pump even for the act of eating itself. I would not advise any kind dieting if you have a normal bmi. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
