The HCG Diet allows a person to comfortably go about their usual activities on a diet of only 500 calories daily and lose an average of about one pound per day. Because the body needs more than 500 calories a day to function, fat reserves are used for energy. Under the effect of HCG, the overweight body is always able to obtain all the calories it needs from the abnormal fat deposits, regardless of whether it uses up 1500 or 4000 per day. The HCG allows you to live to a far greater extent on the fat which you are losing than on what you eat. Normal fat reserves (the healthy kind) are not touched. In the meantime, skin remains fresh and turgid, and gradually body weight returns to normal. The daily administration of HCG appears to have no side-effects other than beneficial.

HCG Talk will serve as not only a resource for those participating in the HCG Diet but also a place where they can “talk” about it as well. We do plan on installing a forum in the near future but in the interim, please visit our Facebook Fan Page which will allow you to interact with others who are currently on the diet or are in Maintenance mode.
