So a couple people I work with have done some very low calorie diets recently and have had some really good success with it. The one lost 30 pounds in 26 days on her particular diet. I was interested in learning more so she gave me some stuff to read. It is called the hCG Diet. You take hCG drops while you have a strict, 500 calorie a day diet where they average 1 to 2 pounds of weight loss per day. Yes, hCG – the same hormone in women that detects pregnancy.

The hCG Diet Overview: You take the hCG drops plus eat the menu below. It is a 26 day diet then followed by 3 weeks of slowly incorporating food back into your daily life.
Tea or coffee in any quantity without sugar. Only one tablespoonful of milk allowed in 24 hours.
1. 100 grams (weighed raw) of veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp
2. One type of vegetable only to be chosen from the following: spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, cabbage.
3. One breadstick (grissino) or one Melba toast.
4. An apple, orange, or a handful of strawberries or one-half grapefruit.
The same four choices as lunch
I have recently purchased a treadmill and I am trying the old fashion “eat healthier and exercise” program. This is how I lost a lot of weight before…..but I would love to loose a good amount of weight in a short period of time, however having tried many fad type diets in the past I just don’t think they are for me. I enjoy cooking and eating good food. Not to mention, these fad diets where a lot easier when I was single or not living with Terry.
So I am sure many others have tried diets but what do you do (have you done) to loose weight? What diets have you tried? What worked/didn’t work? Would you try something like this diet above?
