  • Oh I am doing the drops not the shots. I just wanted to chat with someone who was doing it or done it. So far I have lost 6lbs in 9 days. You should try it. Its not easy but if you really want to lose like me you will do it.

  • here is the deal..i dont care if you take sugar drop every day, when you eat a 500 calorie diet you will lose weight and you will lose it fast. the fda approved hcg for fertility reasons, not for weight loss. if you go to actual medical websites that do reviews on diets they tell you sure you lose weight doing a 500 calorie diet...but using hcg is not what is making that happen and this can have some terrible side effects. did you know it can damage your ovaries? you can develop over active ovary syndrome as well. if you develop that you may grow dark facial hair, your stomach will maintain more fat around the midsection, can be difficult to get pregnant. i understand the thrill of something quick...but if you understand hwo the body works and how skin works...you'll know that 500 calories a day is insanely unhealthy. your body does not burn off fat btw when your losing weight this fast, it burns off muscle first

  • if you keep burning off muscle your metabolism slows down and its hard to build it back up.

  • I was doing it and stopped. I was doing the drops 3 times a day, however I wasn't eating 500 calories. I did cut back on my eating, and made wiser choices when it came to food, and much smaller portions. I plan on starting it back up after I get my IUD so I don't have to worry about getting pregnant. I was losing weight, but missed my last period. That may have or may have not been associated with the HCG. I don't think it was but I want to cover my bases.

  • Ok well I did the HCG drops and they worked. It was the hardest diet of my life but I lost 16 lbs. I would have lost more but I am vegetarian. I had to have beans every once and a while. I look different and feel great. I will do weight watchers now. I think its a great diet if you want to lose fast.

  • Oh and I didn't lose muscle... I am more toned than ever i also didnt work out. The drops make you not hungry and it tough me a good lesson portion control.
