FDA Denounces The HCG Diet For Weight Loss

March 9, 2011 by

A new diet that is gaining a lot of publicity as of late is the HCG diet in which a pregnancy hormone is injected into the body that promotes weight loss.

The diet consists of the daily shot along with maintaining a daily diet of 500 calories and according to those who have tried it, the diet actually works.

Millions of people living in America battle their weight every day and many of those will try anything to lose the weight, even if it means injecting HCG, which is actually a hormone derived from the urine of pregnant women.

The FDA recently weighed in on the diet, calling it unsafe but as long as people continue to swear by it you can be sure that others will try it out for themselves, looking for that quick fix.

What is the most outragious tactic you have used in the past to shed the pounds?
