What is the HCG diet?

I have had a few patients ask me recently if I offer the HCG diet.

The answer is no.  At this point it is experimental, unproven and possibly dangerous.

The 500 calorie/ day is too restrictive to be healthy.  Messing with fertility hormones (HCG) makes no sense.  The body has a delicate balance of hormones and adding synthetic hormone has consequences.

We all want an easy way out but the same rules for weight loss apply today as they always have.  The formula is simple and we all know it.  Healthy eating + exercise = weight loss.
