It is an extreme diet that involves injections of HCG ( human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG is the hormone women make when they are pregnant.
It is 500 calories diet.
It is associated with dramatic weight loss, up to a pound a day.
It required the consumption of only one vegetable per meal,prohibited the use of oil,body lotions and hygiene products,and limited use of the HCG hormone to odd cycles of 23 and 46 days. The diet also did not allow exercise.
The most pressing question is: Do HCG injections work for weight loss? My answer is yes. Tricker question is How does HCG work for weight loss?
Here is possible explanation, based on some research, HCG does not make you loose weight, the diet makes you loose weight. However, the HCG injections change how you loose weight!
