I am scheduled for my first appointment on January 8th and I am so excited! I have done this for 5 days and lost 11 lbs once before. I plan on doing it until I lose 50 lbs. Have any of you ever tried the HCG diet? If so what was your experience? How long did it take you to lose the weight? Did you keep it off? What was your average weekly weight loss?

i've heard of the hcg diet but have never tried it. hcg originally is used for somwthing else for medical purposes. i don't know if you knew that. i think hcg is used to increase a womans fertility. i wouldn't use hcg to lose weight as but instead would use other means. you know what hcg actually is don't you? its pregnant womens urine. if you didn't know that i'm seroius.

Its a hormone found in pregnant women. yes I have done much research on it and it is used for fertility reasons. However I have seen many people lose weight doing this. What it does is helps you go on a low cal diet without taking from your good fat or muscle tissues.

It’s a good idea to have an idea of the calories that most food items have. If it is a packed thing then the label is sure to have the calories that the substance has.

Hello, I came across your response and was wondering did you stick to it? I am actually looking into doing it and wondering if it is real. How much weight have you lost from it so far? Any side effects or anything? Please let me know.
