HCG diet discredited long ago

ABC News ran a major story on the so-called HCG (pregnancy hormone) diet last night. As a result, I’ve gotten a bunch of questions on the topic today.

Basically, proponents say this pregnancy hormone and fertility drug redistributes fat … decreases hunger … and improves mood in women. But there’s NO proof to these claims. Any weight loss is likely from the extremely low-calorie diet that’s used with HCG.

This diet was debunked by excellent research a long time ago. For the data, and more details, read my past blog on the HCG diet, “HCG injections and diet for weight loss discredited long ago.”
