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.

Does hCG work for weight loss?

Does hCG work for weight loss?

It's not proven to: What works is reducing caloric intake.

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

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

I know several people who have benefited from the injectable form of the hCG for weight loss - what is the consensus out there on this?

HCGdiet looks unsafe: 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
