HCG Drops

Has anyone else tried the hcg drop diet yet? My Mom lost 36 lbs in a little over 8 weeks and I have heard both positive and negatives about it....she loves it and sears by it.

Does anyone else have any experience they can share?

  • If you only eat 500 calories a day (whether you take the drops or not) you will lose a lot of weight in a short time. But then when you try to eat normally again you'll gain it back.

  • I know people who have done it and had great success. You have to have will power and stick to the diet for the duration.

  • One of my friends did it and she lost 40 pounds, but started eating too many calories and gain most of it back. I think it would be fine if people slowly introduce more food back in . IMO

  • I have heard a couple people ask about it on here but have never checked out anything myself. I don't know how healthy it is.

  • part 2...of my earlier answer.... Like I said before it take works and is hard... but I know several people who did this and it worked... and a year later they have not gained any weight back because they stick to the good eating after taking the HCG. Like any diet I would check with your dr. first
