In brief: No

But it will lighten your wallet.
To lose weight you need to achieve negative caloric balance, i.e., burn more calories than you take in. Reduce your intake, and exercise (easier said than done).

In brief: Yes

The HCG diet was originally developed by a.
T.W. Simeons M.D. During the 1940's -1950's. It has been used all over the world for over 50 years. This method is extremely safe & effective when used under the care of an experienced & trained md. Apparently HCG has an effect on your hypothalamus, increasing adiponectin levels & reducing leptin resistance. The method must be followed strictly to work.
