LA Weight Loss - HCG Diet Plan....How Do I Talk My Friend Out of It?

Hi! I have a friend who is not serious about lifestyle changes as far as diet goes, and is always looking for a "quick fix".

She told me about this plan today, and I'd never heard of it, so I Googled it, but didn't really find any info.

So I came here, and noticed the "sticky" thread at the top.

Where can I find the real info about this plan? It sounds like it may be dangerous. Also, she told me her husband's cousin, who is a nurse, told her about this plan, and can supposedly get the shot for her without a prescription?

I'm having a fit about this! Thanks for reading.....

The plan, from what I understand, is that you eat 500 calories/day and get HCG shots which aren't proven effective or safe for weight loss. Shady doctors have lost their licenses for prescribing the shots for weight loss as it can only be prescribed for certain conditions. If someone is saying they can get it without a prescription, that is certainly questionable.
