One other diet to avoid…

I almost forgot to add this in.


HCG diets are a scam and a lie.  Period


For those not familiar.  HCG diets are a diet based on hormonal injections and eating 500 calories a day.  And now apparently there are drops.  these drops are not the HCG hormone.  they just call themselves HCG to further take advantage of people.

Every single study on HCG has proven the injections to be a waste of time and money for the consumer.  Every. single. one.

  • S Afr Med J. 1990 Feb 17;77(4):185-9
  • Br J Clin Pharmacol. 1995 Sep;40(3):237-43
  • Am J Clin Nutr. 1976 Sep;29(9):940-8.
  • Geburtshilfe Frauenheilkd. 1987 May;47(5):297-307

Every study has  shown that when it is compared to a 500 calorie diet those who are not taking HCG get the exact same results as those who are on HCG.


Oh and the original roots of HCG, was as an alternative to regular anabolic steroid use:

  • J Clin Invest. 1950;29(5):619–629.


Any one who tells you the  HCG diet is anything but a scam should not be trusted with giving you health advice.  Ever.  In fact, run from them like they have the plague.


And now to lighten the mood, something cute…
