One of my friends has been doing the hcg diet and has lost 20 lbs in less than a month! Have any of you heard of this? She is doing it through her doctor, so I guess it's safe. It just sounds so crazy to lose so much so fast. I would love to hear from anyone who has done this diet. Have you gained the weight back?

I haven't heard of this weight-loss program. I think even if a doctor supervises you in weight loss, it would not serve as an assurance for safety. Some say that abrupt lost in weight might put someone in danger.

I have heard of this diet. I am not sure that just because it is supervised by a doctor means it is safe. I think a slower weight loss is safer and easier to maintain. You have to change how you eat and live to sustain weight loss. With a quick fix weight loss, once you stop the HCG, you may gain it all back and more. I just had my yearly physical today and found out that I officially lost 24lbs this year. I did the 17day diet and have continued to incorporate what I learned while on it to maintain my weight loss.
