Default HCG Diet Drops Success?

One of my closest friends has completed a phase of HCG and had amazing results. She absolutely could not lose weight below 170lbs. No matter how restrictive she was in her caloric intake to doing 90 minutes on the elliptical and running like a mad woman, the weight wasn't giving in....until HCG.

She got everything from a local clinic/doctors office. But my goodness, the prices were outrageous, something like $350.

So I am curious, who here has used HCG drops? Did you have any success? And where did you obtain it, online or through your doctor?

FYI HCG diets are considered dangerous and highly discouraged on this site. There's a good chance this thread will be deleted

Well that makes sense why there aren't any threads on it.

Yeah, I'm going to go ahead and close this thread. Basically, HCG diets are extremely low calorie diets that aren't safe and the use of HCG for weight loss is not approved for weight loss. A doctor can lose his license for prescribing HCG for weight loss. Unfortunately, I think it'll take a few people dying before anything is done about the various doctors that are prescribing HCG.
