I have always wondered the same thing.

SHC, talk to a diet doctor about HCG, my wife is doing it and has lost about 15 pounds in less then 2 weeks!

I dont know if someone your age can safely take it.

Hope that helps.

You sound like a real porker. I would suggest something more drastic. Why don't you start by walking around the block once before bed at night and every other morning eat a plum. You should be slimmed down in no time and looking like one of those Bollywood stars.

No - that's about right. You need to have plenty of protein to grow, especially if you're a girl. You don't want to end up flat chested, do you? The extra money you spend on protein now will be worth it in the long run because if you don't, you'll need a boob job before anyone will go out with you.
