However, when done under supervision of qualified physician with injectable HCG and strict adherence to original 500 calorie diet it works well and is Legal.

In brief: Won't work
There isn't enough HCG in a homeopathic remedy to work.
It can only be done under the supervision of a trained physician to make sure it is done the right way and safe. You need the injectable HCG and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet to work.

In brief: Diet sounds 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.
