Please explain what do you know about the hCG diet plan and where can I find some good tasting hCG diet recipes?

HCG diet: The HCG diet has not been proven to be effective for long term weight loss.

Drs i wana ask about hCG diet plan. Is it effective anf how can I start this plan?

No; save your money: 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.

Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

NO: The more I have investigated the otc hcg--which is not HCG . A pregnancy hormone-similar to lh/progesterone effects. The rx hcg may be real human chorionic gonadotropin, but we do not understand the effects it may have on patients---esp if they would have an unknown early cancer? Do not take any chances. Apparently, you can get rx HCG online by a doc------not o-k. ...Read more

Is hCG diet dangerous?

Is hCG diet dangerous?

Its probably safe: It will raise testosterone levels in men. The HCG diet has had side effects, but those are due to rapid weight loss (gall stones) and eating only 500 calories per day, starvation is not a great plan. I doubt the HCG itself causes many or any problems if used in low doses. ...Read more
