    Thank you for posting about this diet. I’m also a dietitian and have tried to discover the studies to back up using HCG as an effective weight loss therapy. Of course you will find no studies showing any statistical significance showing that HCG works because it does not. It just kills me that people are willing to drop tons of cash on some “gimmick” but are unwilling to spend money or time to do what requirements to be carried out for efficient weight loss/maintenance. Thanks once more for your investigation on this. I’m going to pass this along to my patients/friends/family and whoever else needs to read it.

      I am in my second round of the HCG Diet and have lost 50 pounds and firmly believe in this diet because it has done several things for me that no other diet has been able to do: It is teaching me how to eat clean. It is teaching me that even a “little cheat” has consequences. It is teaching me how to know what it feels like to feel full and when to stop eating. It is redirecting my thoughts about food for pleasure and making it more about food as energy. It is giving me the encouragement and the determination by seeing quicker results that are truly sustainable once I’m not on the HCG. Many, many people have used HCG to get to their goal weight and keep it off. It is not a “Gimmick”…it has literally saved my health and my life by giving me the tools I needed to lose this weight for good. Look, you do it your way, I’ll do it mine, but don’t knock what you really haven’t tried or don’t understand. THIS HCG DIET WORKS!!!!

    Joey do better research… The diet DOES work and all the research I need is my dang scale and mirror… Add a change of lifestyle including excercise AFTER the diet and it STAYS off….

    I’ll tell you what’s even more dangerous and unhealthy…. Being the 85 lbs heavier that I WAS. Get over yourself…. Your career is not threatened by this.

    Incidentally I buy the 40 day supply for $75 … There’s your “ton of cash”….much cheaper than an appt to come see you i suspect.
