  • This is something that's been happening for a while, but the hCG was in shot form, and now it's available in oral form. hCG plus a very strict diet (500 calories) is the actual plan, not just hCG. The hCG apparently helps with the success and comfort of the low calorie diet (burns more fat and causes less irritability, headaches, etc. than diet alone), and improves body shape of the end result. Obviously not something to be entered into lightly, but more likely as a last resort before surgery, and even then only under direct supervision of a physician.

  • my aunt started this regimen and so did her co-worker, they have been on weight watchers and have peaked in their loss, they are kicking off another diet with it. so far it's worked, but if you just go with the 500 cal a day thing you will lose wieght anyways.
