After the hCG diet how do you keep the weight off ? Can you drink alcoholic beverages on the diet?

In brief: You can't!

The major problem with every diet (the hcg, adkins, south beach, etc) is that when you stop it, you always regain the weight when you go back to eating the way way you were before.
That's why the diets advertise losing weight quickly but rarely show people who kept the weight off. Remember: alcohol contains calories which can cause weight gain like any other drink. Limit it as much as you can.

In brief: Dont overeat

You lose weight on HCG due to a 500 cal diet.
Now keep to a approprate # of calories (10-12 calories per pound of desired weight) and keep excercising.
