      Dk. Oprah have tried every diet the best money can buy, look at her now.People spend $20 billion per year on viaintms and supplements.a0 According to Everyday Health, here’s an article that will tell you why . . . those PRODUCTS by any other name do NOT WORK.a0 It is false advertisements.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) doesn’t have to approve supplements — no agency in the United States does. So it’s up to consumers to bring health concerns to light. “It’s important to understand the difference between over-the-counter medications and dietary supplements,” say Pieter Cohen, MD, an internist at Cambridge Health Alliance and instructor at Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Mass. The FDA gets involved only after the fact, if the supplement later appears to be causing harm. By that time, the supplement may already have harmed many consumers who used it. “The burden of proof is on the FDA to determine [a supplement] is dangerous and remove it from the market,” Cohen says. Consumer complaints are the primary trigger for investigations. One recent investigation of the dietary weight-loss supplement ephedra resulted in it being banned for sale in the United States.

      I tried Green Web HCG about 6 months ago and did not have a good exnpireece at all. After sharing my exnpireeces on a weight loss forum someone recommended Pharmaslim HCG and directed me to their blog where they recorded all of they’re meals and weigh-ins day by day while using Pharmaslim. I was impressed so i ordered a bottle in April and dropped 25 lbs in the first 42 day cycle. It’s one of the only hCG weight loss formulas available that offers a money back guarantee. Highly recommended, just be sure to prepare yourself for the diet, believe me it can be very hard to limit yourself to 500 calories per day.

      I did the drops from and lost 16 ponuds on the diet in 24 days. Its now been 3 months since I did this diet and and I have not gained a pound since I went off of it. I have tried so many diets and this is a diet that I can really say was fun. Its so great to wake up every morning and see how much weight you have lost. My and my mom and sister all took the drops from Pro Hcg Diet which had good instructions and a great menu book too. Some girls from the office did the injections and lost about the same as I did so unless your into pain, get drops!Good Luck!

      A mini steak days helps if your ketones are low. When your body is using prrmaiily fat as energy, your ketoned excreted in your urine will be high. Doing a steak day, you aren’t eating any carbs so it forces your body to burn fat. Ketones will generally be back high again the next morning if so your steak day was successful but there is not neccessarily going to be an immediate change in the scale, fat burning can take 2-3 days to show on the scale simeons says.

    • Dinesh says:

      The reason that Dr. Simeon’s says not to inejct during your period is because your body actually produces HCG during the menstrual cycle. I may be wrong, anyone feel free to correct me. So inejcting on those days would be a waste of your HCG. Also, the more HCG in your system, the faster you become immune. If I were you I would go ahead and start loading now to get your normal fat reserves up and then start inejcting and loading for two more days after the period. I know I loading for a week this round, only because I have been on so many diets before and I wanted to make sure my normal fat reserves were full. I am on my 9th day now, and have not had even the slightest bit of hunger the whole week.See the first week is sometimes hard since you may get hunger pangs, that is why we load, so that our body can run off our normal fat for the first few days and keep us content until the hcg gets into our system and mobilizes the abnormal fat.Try to eat very high fat food, on my loading I had fried chicken, buttered biscuits, chocolate, donuts, peanut butter cups, chips, etc. LOL I feel so strange telling you to eat all that but enjoy it!Also, whenever I am in the kitchen I wear gloves, only because I live with 8 other people and there is no telling what has oil on it. That’s right, even a drop of oil touching your skin will keep you from losing the next day. Be careful! Check all spices and foods for any sugar, oil, sugar alcohol, or aspartame(BAD).As far as shampoo and conditioner, I am using the same I normally do. I have just reduced washing my hair to once or twice a week. I have curly hair so this is actually keeping my waves a bit more hydrated. The easiest thing is to just use your normal shampoo and conditioner and just wash your hair less. But expect to not lose on the day you shampoo and condition. Normal showers are fine though, with -bar soap with no oil in ingredients-, just rinse your hair with water or use a shower cap.Btw, you WILL gain a lot of weight on your load days but don’t worry, you will lose every ounce of it within the first few days! I have started the Dr. Simeon’s Protocol (original and only true HCG diet) about 5 times but different circumstances forced me to stop. I am finally able to do a full round, hopefully with no interuptions.It has been 9 days:I started at 178 (after loading)I am now at 165Round 1 Goal .148 or less ^_^A note, DO NOT freeze your HCG, no matter what anyone tells you. Just refrigerate. I lost a $70 bottle of HCG because I listened to someone else and froze it. HCG is very fragile and freezing ruins it.Also, we can have vinegar and cucumbers on the diet, so some people say that means we can also have pickles. I have them sometimes. It’s up to you, I have been losing fine. Just another thing you may consider if you get bored with your food.Another note , there is a diet soda called Zevia, that is sweetened with Stevia (a sweet plant). Zevia has no calories, no sugar, its all natural. I found a few cans at my local Whole Foods store for 99cents a can. I’ve had two cans in a week and a half, it tastes better than regular diet soda. Its nice to keep around for when you get a craving for soda. But don’t overdo it.Email me if you have any other questions, I have a lot of tips for ya! BIGGEST THING TO REMEMBER! WATER < TEA < COFFEE GET YOUR LIQUIDS IN and DONT EAT PAST 7PM (so your body has plenty of time to digest and flush out all the food and your weight in the morning will be correct)

  27. hcg fact or fiction says:

    That is a nicely written and published product. I loved looking through it rather a lot. There are many companies from the internet in these modern times, associated with a whole lot additional info, it should be challenging to detect precisely what is precise, combined with what human beings quite frankly conjure. The actual same is true of diet plan programs or any type of style of diet. I have studied an awful lot throughout the healthy hcg diet, and moreover am unsure what you should figure apart from every item. It appears that hcg needles may just be approach to take, they also seem to be more costly, which means you require a medical professionsal. I find myself asking about hcg drops, and if they can truly work. You can get actual hcg drops, in addition to the holistic easy hcg drops that you can buy everyplace. People can even acquire hcg drops throughout Walmart at this point. The food diet which usually fits hcg, may sound like this is a misery diet when they admit you take in fewer than 700 caloric intake on a daily basis. I would personally believe that customers should probably lose the fat through any weight loss because of this. In addition , they acknowledge hcg lets you have the capacity to stay with the diet program, and as well may cause your body as a way to drop way more flab.

  28. hCG says:

    That is a nicely displayed content. I personally savored scanning it a great deal. There are countless membership sites over the internet lately, and as well , lots of content, it can be complicated to indicate what certainly is substantial, in addition what some individuals slightly conjure. The same applies to weight loss plans or some kind of variety of fat loss. We have read in detail alot relating to healthy hcg diet, and thus am not sure what to evaluate as a result of everything. Apparently hcg needles are classified as the best route, however they appear to be sometimes costly, and as well you happen to require a medical professional. I tend to be itching to know about using the hcg drops, assuming they begin to really work. I have discovered realistic painless hcg drops, and in addition natural hcg drops in the market all-around. Most people may also get hold of easy hcg drops found on Walmart nowadays. This diet which usually features hcg, seems like it’s really a starving diet simply because they say that you consume down below 800 caloric intake daily. I may feel that the public normally would drop pounds around any food regimen doing this. Furthermore they say that hcg allows you to be able to stay with the food diet, and consequently will cause the actual body so you may eliminate alot more body weight. Thanks, hcg.
