Anyone try it or are currently doing it? If you use the drops, where do you get them? How much have you lost and how long did it take?



(if you don't know what it is, google it, lol.)

My aunt did it and lost quite a bit. Like 20+. She got her drops from the health store. It's not really a super healthy way to lose weight tho.....but to tell you the truth I've thought about doing it. But I'm still bfing and even tho it's supposedly ok I don't want to take the risk

Basically you only eat 500 calories a day and use either hcg drops or injections and you're supposed to lose a bunch of weight. You don't have to exercise either, although I probably would anyway.

Yeah I don't think it's healthy to do while breastfeeding. I know the calorie intake is pretty low but I'm seriously considering it, lol.

I looked into it, I knew people that had great success with it. Then, I talked to my doctor about it.
My doctor said NO! She said that it is being looked into for triggering some forms of cancer. I know that there are a lot of food additives that have listings that they can cause cancer in lab rats etc... But, she said that it is hormones that will show that you are pregnant, even if you aren't and she doesn't feel she could support or recommend me doing it.
I googled it when I got home from the doctor ( I had asked her back in May 2012 about it)
I chose not to do it from what my doctor said.
I am not criticizing anyone who has or who will take this, I don't want this taken the wrong way. I just didn't think it was the right choice for me.

It's super low calorie but from the way she explained it (if i'm remembering right) your body uses the calories from your fat so although you're only eating 550 or so your body still is getting more than that....which explains the huge weight loss

Yeah, that's what I'm looking into lol. I found some at GNC but it's kind of expensive. I have to go to the store and look around for the best one.

I take pure green coffee extract and have lost about 10lbs in 2.5weeks but i also am watching calories and exercising 3x a week minimum. My sister-in-law using red raspberry extract and has lost 18lbs in a month but she has turned into a gym rat so don't know how much is the drops and how much is her working out.
