  • Never tried it, but I googled it, Looks like another one of those schemes to make the inventor of it rich. NO WAY you can saftly loose 1 to 2 pounds a day. Save your money. Stop eating junk and processed foods stop soda's and diet soda's drink lots of water and excercise.

  • One of my coworkers is on it. She has lost 30 pounds in about 2 months, but it seems unhealthy to me. And, I don't think I would be satisfied on what she eats. I would be very afraid the weight would come right back as soon as you stop the diet.

  • You take HCG either as an injestion each day or as drops under your tongue. You follow a very strick diet 500-800 calories a day.
    You do this for three weeks. It can be repeated until you reach your desired weight. Gotta be committed to do this diet. The shots/drops are supposed to control hunger. It does work.
