This diet works really well for me because I like very structured diets. I went from a size 20 to a 10.
Yes, I found a site and read about it. Whether injections or pills, it seems that the HCG is meant to accompany a VLC diet of 500 calories per day. A few years ago, I participated in a research study for weight loss and did a liquid diet of 900 calories per day, and was informed that diets of 800 or 900 calories per day are the lowest a person can go without a doctor's supervision. Taking in less than that would require hospitalization and monitoring. So, are you guys doing the HCG with that few calories, with a doctor's supervision?
