    I am Alonso and I am following my diet plan to lose weight.
    As one of friend who lives in new jersey suggest me to use the hcg drops to lose weight.
    But it is really hard to stay on hcg diet for a long time. As it is strict low calorie diet where you consume only 500 calories a day.
    Can anyone you suggest me whether there I can go ahead with HCG diet plan?
    Also suggest me alternative weight loss supplements to lose weight?
    If possible suggest me with workouts to lose weight that can be done at home.

    Well what is in the HCG is a pregnancy hormone if I am not mistaken. You should check with your doctor if you are on hrt or something just to make sure you will be ok with it. I was on it personally and it was hard because I always felt starving.

    Terrible idea.

    For one, taking hormones willy-nilly will really screw up your endocrine system.

    For another, repeated studies have shown that the HCG has nothing to do with the weight loss, nor does it help significantly, and is simply a placebo.

    A 500 calorie diet is dangerous. Quite simply, the whole thing is a bad idea. .
