Have you tried or heard of the HGC diet?

I'm trying a diet called the HGC Diet, I know a few ppl who are on it and it has been very successful for them. So I'm wondering how "popular" it is.

  • I have two coworkers doing it. One has lost quite a bit of weight. It doesn't sound sustainable to me, but good luck!

  • not that I have heard of. the point of the diet is to re-boot your metabolism by starting you over and you eat 500cal a day for a few weeks so that your body uses up the fat that you don't need.

  • haha the HGC drop help your body not be hungry be cause they tell you brain to use the extra fat. it's more of a mental thing. and trust me I LOVE food. and it has been hard. but I have been trying to get this wieght off for a year and if for the next 7 weeks i have to do this and it'll get the weight off then it'll be well worth it!
