does the hcg diet work?

I just recently went to a clinic that does the hcg shots and vitamin b shot. It is pricey so I want to know if it really works or not. I have 5 kids so I can't be waisting money on something that doesn't work.

  • I would research the HCG shot...personally, based on what I have read about it- I would never do it.

  • as far as i know--which is just from reading the pamplet you have to follow a strict 500 calorie a day diet and if you go over that most of everything you eat is converted into fat, but if you follow it the pounds melt off bc it helps you burn fat calories faster. i wouldn't do it.

  • It works but it's very time consuming and takes A LOT of will power. I know a lot of people who tried and most of them gave up.
