Do the hCG drop work and how?

Do the hCG drop work and how?

No: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

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 more

Does the hCG diet really work? Otc or prescribed better?

Does the hCG diet really work? Otc or prescribed better?

Scam: This is a very-low-calorie diet with an expensive placebo. You'll lose weight by restricting calories, and spend money for something that will do you no good. Ask your personal physician whether a crash diet is really right for you. Better, start hanging out with people who are into physical fitness and join in. Unlike a crash diet, this will result in real, sustained good results. ...Read more

Yes: If they are checking to see if you are pregnant it might give false positive. It might give you an elevated triglyceride level since the body is using your fat as fuel.

Does the hCG diet really work?

Absolutely: You must do the diet under supervision of a qualified physician, injectable HCG not drops, and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet and not a modified version of it with higher calories. You can lose 1-2 lbs of fat per day. Some physicians call this diet dangerous or won't work, but lack an understanding about the diet and it's proven safety. In use since 1950s. ...Read more

If i take the b12&hcg injection for weight loss(1/2cc hcg)in shot . Will that increase fertility or is it safe with 1250 calorie diet ?

No: The HCG does not affect your fertility at the recommended doses for the diet, 125 iu. And you should be on the original protocol which is 500 calories for it to be effective. Too many phsyicians have modified the diet and dose and still claim the results will be the same. They won't! the weight loss will lead to fertility as it changes the estrogen to Progesterone balance. ...Read more

How does the hCG diet work? 

How does the hCG diet work? 

Not very well.: The weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testicles, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read more

I'm curious as to what hCG drops work for weight loss?

Simeons' Diet?: Hcg diet, its "full of c**p" - to use a nonmedical phrase. It's based on using HCG (which doesn't work in the first place), but you can't get HCG expect by prescription and then it's only given by injection. By law, the drops can't contain any hcg, so it's like adding expensive water to your meals. All the so-called HCG diets use a very low calorie intake to get you to lose weight, not due to hcg. ...Read more

Sometimes but...: It is hard to know why someone develops hypothyroidism. Sometimes nutrients like iodine, tyrosine & selenium stimulate thyroid function, as can some herbs like ashwagandha. But if you have thyroiditis don't stimualte! many environmental toxins suppress thyroid function so detoxification may help. Homeopathy can also help.
