Has anybody heard of the HCG diet? I heard about it for the first time tonight. A girl I know has lost 60 pounds on it so far and she was telling me stories of her family and friends that have done the same. Most people lose an average of a pound a day while on it. Now I realize it's not the smartest way to lose weight...but I'm wondering if it's worth it to just get the weight off and then work towards eating right and exercising to maintain. If it were to work for me...I could be at my goal weight in like 6 weeks! I'm still reading about it and have some of Skyler's female nurse friends checking into it for me. But let me know what you think if you've heard about it.
Like any 'fad' type diet, I worry about gaining the weight back after I get off of it because there's no way it's a long term lifestyle. However I have lost my first 50 pounds with the help of Phentermine, and I have been able to maintain it for several months now. Like I said, I'm thinking if after I get the weight off I can pick up the exercise again to help with maintaining. OK, these are my thoughts so far...I'm interested to see what you think!
