In brief: HCG

Some weight loss centers are using HCG injections which is showing promise and is reasonably safe - there are certain conditions where this is inappropriate.

In brief: Healthy weight loss

The best way to lose weight is diet & exercise.
You should: 1) how many calories you take in daily & work on eating healthier food 2) start a manageable, consistent workout regiment (exercise 30-45 min/day for 4 days/week) 3) sleep 7-8 hrs/day. Supplements alone don't result in sustainable weight loss. Some supplements include Alli and chitosan. Pills always have the possibility of side effects.
