You have to be on a 500 calorie diet on HCG. That's why you lose weight. The HCG is just a money trap.

I used to think the same thing before I started the HcG myself. The human body has three types of fats. The first is the structural fat which fills the gaps between various organs, a sort of packing material. also performs such important functions as bedding the the kidneys in soft elastic tissue , protecting the coronary arteries keeping the skin smooth and taut. The second type of fat is a normal reserve of fuel upon which the body can freely draw when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insufficient to meet the demand. This fat helps muscular activity and body tempertature regulation. Both these types of fat, structural and reserve, are normal, and even if the body stocks them to capacity this can never be called obesity. The third type of fat is entirely abnormal.This fat is where the overweight patient suffers. This abnormal fat is also a potential reserve of fuel, but unlike the normal reserves it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. When an obese patient tries to reduce by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. when these are exhausted he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves. To make this long story short thats why the HcG is so great. It kind of works like this the hormone tell the body and brain to go to the abnormal fat to get all nourish for the baby from this fat. So when doing the HcG with 500cal the body burns 3500 is 1lb of fat you can see why you lose. yes anyone doing just 500 cal a day your right well lose weight but it will hit your two good fats before it hits the bad. Where taking HcG goes right to the bad. I hope this helped :0)

Obviously, the above poster works for or owns a weight loss clinic. OR they got suckered out of the HUNDREDS of dollars the injections cost. Since we're being all "medical" though....

The human body requires a MINIMUM of 1000 calories to be consumed just in order to maintain the muscle it already has. When calorie intakes fall below this range, it is not structural, normal, or abnormal fat that the body turns to first. It is muscle. After the body begins to eat itself by consuming muscle tissue for energy, it will eventually turn to starvation mode. Only then, will it begin to use fat stores for energy.

HCG is a gimmic starvation diet. Research it as well. As a weight loss product, the studies are inconclusive at best. I recommend changing to a healthy diet and exercise, including resistance exercise which builds fat burning muscle. You'll be more likely to keep it off. You'll be far more healthy. AND...you'll save a ton of cash.

"Dumb" is right.... This diet is nothing new. This was a fad diet many, many years ago. Try the 500 calorie diet WITHOUT the hcg. I bet you will STILL loose just as much weight. Don't let these people scam you out of your hard-earned money!!

I've done the hcg diet and it works just as described. If you only eat 500 calories you loose weight, but if you have belly fact or big thighs, you won't loose the fat in those areas. On the hcg diet you loose the fat that you can never get to.
It's like your body shrinks...fat melts away in all the right places. It's awesome!
I have done it once ( last summer) and am presently on it again. I went off it for vacations, and jumped right back on. Kept the weight off till the holidays and winter weather...lol!
It does work, it's effective in getting rid of the fat that diet and exercise doesn't touch.
And no, I don't work for them. Yes, it's pricey and I know there are the hcg drops that are cheaper, but don't know if anyone has had any success using them.
I am not obese, but at my age the belly tends to take on a new shape..hcg gets rid of all of it!

This is to Dumb & Beth in SC, HCG isn't a money scam... it breaks down the abnormal fat stores and releases 2000-4000calories into the bloodsteam everyday. Thats why you able to maintain a 500 calorie diet. I think you need to do some more research. Or you did the diet and didn't stick to it because you didn't have the will power to do it. Thats why uour quick to say it doesn't work.
