- I would not buy HCG supplements at the drug store. I wouldn't buy them at the vitamin store and I would not buy them online. There's no way to know what'e really in them. I don't want you to waste your money. Period.
- I would never restrict calories below 1200 calories per day without a doctor getting involved. I do think with a doctor's supervision, there are some rational reasons to do that.
- By researching HCG -- and this is what I'm excited about -- we might find new ways to help millions of people who do not have another solution to find an option. And for that reason, I think it's worth investigating.
- It's easy to buy products claiming to contain HCG -- over the counter and online -- though many have little or no trace of the hormone. The most concentrated dose must be prescribed by your doctor.
The HCG Diet at Derma Health Institute uses real HCG prescription injections and is doctor supervised. For more information about the HCG diet at Derma Health Institute, see
