    Yes, it is restrictive on calories, it uses the extra fat from your body for the additional required calories you would normally eat. It is the most effective natural way to loose weight and has been on the market for many years.

    Are you taking the drops or the injections? Can I be so bold as to ask how much this cost? If you google HCG diet recipes there are several sites listed.

    It Is drops that you put under your tongue 3 times a day and you are limited to about 500 calories a day. I am really goint to try and go on it tomorrow for sure. Have been thinking about it for 6 moinths, but just don't want to give up food. I like to eat. My brothe r and sister have really done very well. They have been heavy all their lives, so for them it is a godsend and they are faithful to the diet and their Dr say they are doing great.

    Yes, you can ask how much it costs. For my husband and I it was $75.00, that included the book and 2 bottles of the tablets. I didn't have the woman break down the prices, but I'm guessing the book is $25.00 and the 2 bottles are $25.00 a piece. The tablets will get you through one course which is 40 days. I've lost 11 and my husband 13 since 7/11. The first 10 pounds is always the easiest. It will slow down from here.

    HCG stands for (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) "it is a hormone naturally produced in large quantitiy during pregnancy. In small regular quantities it enables the body to release abnormal fat or stored fat."

    Did you order them off the internet? I heard that Walgreens pulled theirs because they were not from a reliable company and actually only had a minute amount of HCG in them. I am looking for a reliable place to purchase some from.

    I ordered mine on line from some place in Mich. I would have to look up the site. When I ordered I was told to make sure they were made in the USA

    The long term maintenance is very similar to a Weight Watcher's Diet.

    I am also on this diet and am having good results. After lots of research, I determined I wanted to use the spray from this site.

    Yes, you can't just buy it from anyone selling it. You have to be careful. There are a lot of suppliers trying to make a buck.

    I did the injections in the 70's at a clinic. Lost weight, gained it back plus after I started "eating" again. There is not enough nutrition, not enough calories, and I was constantly hungry. Today, my Nutritionist says to avoid it and anything LIKE it, at all cost. That's my two cents worth. Hope it helps.
