Heard of it?  Tried it?  Injections of the hormone HCG once daily for 50 days along side a low cal diet.  Anyone heard of it or tried it?  BUMP if you don't mind.

My husband does OSHA training as a side business...one of his clients is doing the HCG..my husband said, this guy has lost a ton of weight...I looked into it...I don't think it's something I would do..

Why if you don't mind me asking?  My mom is maybe doing it and I told her I would help her research for her.  Just thought I would ask you ladies if you heard of it.

When I looked into it the first thing that shocked me was that the diet only allowed 500 calories a day...I have gone through classes for my insulin resistance and I have learned, when you only give your body that few of calories...your body will go into a survival mode. It will start storing all calories...your metabolism gets all screwed up..so when you stop the injections...you have the potential to gain even more weight than you started with.

It isn't a lifestyle that I feel many people can sustain for long periods of time.

I have tried every gimic known to man...and I am slowly learing the ONLY way to lose weight and keep it off is through diet and exercise...it's a reality that I am facing right now...and I am ready to make that commitment to myself.

I have only heard very little about it, mostly on tv morning shows and what not but its still a pretty controversial thing some say its okay others say it really not good for your body, I would suggest having your mom talk it over with her doctor first to get their opinion.

It is the hormone the placenta produces.  So you are correct.
