HCG Diet
 
Just doing some keyword research and this HCG diet popped up and it just blew me away what this diet is.

Has anyone heard of it? You basically go 500 cal a day and take HCG..

I wrote an article on it but check it out. :volk:

It's a miracle! Just take HCG and you'll lose weight! (oh, and only eat 500 calories a day too.)

Stupid.

YEAH! A lot of women my wife knows talk about it. Just plan too lazy to do any research.

That's crazy. I put the basics in the article but there are more stipulations about it too.. I can't believe it's so well known.

here is an excerpt from wikipedia about NAZI CONCENTRATION CAMPS

"The work in the quarries — often in unbearable heat or in temperatures as low as −30 C (−22 F)[20] — led to exceptionally high mortality rates.[40][note 6] The food rations were limited, and during the 1940–1942 period, an average inmate weighed 40 kilograms,[41] roughly 88 pounds. It is estimated that the average energy content of food rations dropped from about 1,750 calories a day during the 1940–1942 period, to between 1,150 and 1,460 during the next period. In 1945, the energy content was even lower and did not exceed 600 to 1,000 calories a day; that is less than a third of the energy needed by an average worker in heavy industry.[1] This led to the starvation of thousands of inmates."

Apparently, if you work more than you eat, you will lose weight!

But it's SOOOOO much more complicated than that! SOOOO.

And I am a complicated man. Simplicity doesn't work for me. I have thyroid issues, or metabolic damage, or something....

Well, technically, it's not that well-known, I've never heard of it and tbh have no interest in reading about it either.

I just see ads and fake products at Wal-mart all the time. That's how I learned of it.

If you want to check out the latest diet fads, just hit the Wal-mart supplement section.
