    the hhcg is not a lifestyle, but a jump step towards a healthy lifestyle. the hhcg does take the edge off the hunger. If one joins a support group for the hcg/hhcg you find that there is a huge push to finding long term good eating habits...and most end up eating paleo/primal. I did not eat bacon, sausage etc...too high in fat at the time of the low cal portion. It did cure my carb addiction, it did help me recognize my sugar cravings and control that. Dr. Kruse is a big supporter of the hcg/hhcg community. I never lost a pound a day like touted, more like a pound every 4 days...but it did help eliminate cellulite on my thighs and stomach. I have had 9 pregnancies, with 5 births. My stomach skin was rather stretched and loose. In time my skin has become considerably tighter...I now only have a small section below the belly button that I am not comfortable with. But hey, I am almost 46 years old with five kids...I am not trying to compete with the 20 something crowd...I am just trying to be healthy.
    Congratulation to your SIL... hopefully she will continue making healthy choices...

    and thank you for your civility.

    SIL swears it was the hcg that got her through the 'carb flu' and made the weight fall off. The 500cal/day had nothing to do with it I asked her if she knew she was on a Paleo diet. She said, yes I heard its something like that...

    On a positive note, she is convinced her sugar addiction has been cured. AND she is reading Wheat Belly. And this is the longest I've seen her stick to any one beneficial way of eating. Now if only I can convince her to stop buying all their CAFO meat at Costco.

    Even if the OP was spamming -

    I have a friend who is doing the HCG thing... I'm very skeptical. I prefer to do things more naturally - i.e. Primal Blueprint, but to each their own. Anyhow, I pointed out to her that the "diet" that accompanies the hcg is Paleo and she acknowledged that.

    Makes me think that the hcg is actually doing nothing for her and her miraculous weight loss is coming from the paleo diet.

    I, too, was skeptical of it working...I had tried everything that i knew and continued to gain weight. It did work for me. But I had to take responsibility for what I ate and I had to educate myself on the types of food I ate. I thought I ate well at least according to the traditional SAD....I believe the reason why so many of us former hcg/hhcg users transition over to the primal/paleo world is because it works, it flows rather seamlessly into it. You know, if only one thing worked, the nation would not have an obesity problem, so we all have to find our way...I am grateful for what hhcg did for me, but in the end, the everyday living, and eating...is all primal and I never would have gotten there without learning about hhcg...and then so on.

    If this works as it is purported to work, then this is not a weightloss diet anymore than the average bodybuilder's results can be attributed to their "muscle gaining diet." Rather, in both cases it is the manipulation of one's endocrine system via the administration of exogenous hormones intended to achieve some end.

    Essentially, this "diet" has you eat well below maintenance calories and inject hormones with the intent of maintaining metabolic rate and mobilizing fat. You could achieve the exact same effect by injecting growth hormone, taking thyroid supplements, anabolic steroids, beta two agonists, ephedrine, recombinant human leptin injections, IGF-I and the list goes on. Gain the confidence of any semi-professional bodybuilder and they will regale you with a whole panoply of chemical tactics for cutting fat. These tactics, of course, will do nothing for your health, but you will be shredded. If this is your notion of how one "diets" then I suppose lap bands and liposuction surgery are fair game as well.

    As for me ... I think I'll pass.
