Have you ever tried the HCG diet?

If so, what did you like/not like about it? How much weight did you lose and how many days did it take?

    The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission issued seven warning letters on Tuesday December 6, 2011 to companies that sell the over-the-counter products, noting they have not been approved by the FDA for weight loss. The drops do not contain hcg hormone but similar synthetic peptide amino acids. This is the first step in terminating the sale of the ineffective drops.

    Finally the Food and Drug Administration has taken steps to stop these possibly harmful products.

    Anyone that lost weight on the diet protocol only did because they were eating 500 calories a day and in starvation mode. The drops legally cannot contain any real hcg anyway. Most conscientious pharmacies have already pulled them from the shelves and others are selling down.

    The injections are still available but I have an idea the FDA will step in there too.

    I know you hate to hear it but a healthy diet and exercise work every time.
