I first heard about hcg shots, about a year ago. For those that are not sure what the hcg diet is, it is a very strict diet. HCG is the hormone found in pregnant women, and for years has been used to help people lose weight. Men seem to lose more weight on this diet. My husband and I both took the hcg shots for weight loss back in October.
While taking these shots, I noticed a large weight loss in the beginning then it was slow at coming off. My husband ended up losing over 20 pounds within a few weeks, and I lost a little over 10 I believe.
If you are thinking about doing the hcg diet, I highly recommend you do this under doctors watch. With it being such a low calorie diet you need to make sure all your numbers, such as blood pressure, and sugar levels stay in check. I do not recommend this diet if you are only looking to lose a few pounds, I have noticed some people doing this diet when they really do not need to lose weight.
