  • it doesn't make you pregnant, it's the hormone in your body that the pregnancy test test for!!! the sperm (as i'm sure you know) makes you pregnant and when your body has a fertilized egg in it, it produces more hcg hormones. but according to some people i know did the shots they lost weight, but they also gained it back because they didn't change their eating i would just eat moderately and excerise and save money

  • HCG is the hormone that rises in your body when you become pregnant. I don't see how that can make you lose weight.

    Diets and diet aids (if they even work) are temporary fixes. Unless you learn how to eat healthy for life, you will not be able to maintain a healthy weight and will stay on the gain/lose roller coaster - frustrating for you and hard on your body. Drink at least 8 8oz glasses of water every day. Eat 5-6 servings of whole grains (brown rice, whole grain bread, etc.) every day. Eat 7-8 servings of fruits and vegetables every day, in at least 3 different colors. Eat at least 2 servings of legumes every day. You will lose weight. You will have more energy. You will maintain a healthy weight. You will get sick less often. You will be setting a wonderful example for your children. You can get free meal plans and recipes from Dr. McDougall, or find his books at your local library:
    Eat an apple or a big pile of vegetables before meals.
