I'm more than skeptical. Thoughts? Holla
I haven't done it, but know people who did. It works because it's a drastic calorie reduction to 500 calories, although supposedly taking HCGC makes it where you aren't hungry.
However, my doctor says that she has seen people who go on this diet have their cholesterol go SKY HIGH - AND it does NOT come back down after they go off the hormone. They end up having to go on meds.
IMO, based on that, it's not safe and I wouldn't do it.
