Another satisfied hCG customer

Have you heard about the hCG diet? Lose 30 pounds in a month without exercise. Just go by their nutrition plan and get a few injections or drops and that’s all it takes. Sound pretty good? What if I told you the “nutrition plan” involved eating no more than 500 calories a day and the injections were of a pregnancy hormone? I also found a few more interesting tidbits about the hCG diet. Anything less than 1200 calories is considered a starvation diet. A study in the Canadian Medical Journal said hCG has "no value" as a means of managing obesity, and that the diet has been "thoroughly discredited and thus rejected by the majority of the medical community." Out of 14 clinical trials to determine if hCG was viable, only 2 found that hCG was more effective than a placebo. A quote from Assistant Professor of medicine at Harvard University Pieter Cohen "It's reckless, irresponsible, and completely irrational. Can you lose weight on it? Of course, but that's mainly because you're hardly consuming any calories. And any benefit is not going to last." With that little quote in mind, I came up with 10 other questionable ways to drop some pounds.
 1.    Chemotherapy
2.    Ebola virus
3.    Broken jaw/mouth wired shut
4.    3 a day football practices in Alabama in August
5.    Drink water in a third world country. Repeatedly.
6.    Eat everything with chopsticks if you don’t know how to use them
7.    Cut off a part of your body like a leg or torso
8.  Eat 500 calories a day and use needles (this time you're shooting heroin and eating the same amount of calories)
9. Concentration camp
10. Go running in a sauna suit, ski mask, combat boots, and a heavy backpack at 2pm.
The list could go on and on with ways to just lose weight. Losing weight is great when it is fat weight you're losing. If you are losing 30 pounds in a month, you WILL be losing muscle mass.
You know what happens when you lose muscle? It kills your metabolism. Know what happens when you kill your metabolism? It makes it extremely hard to lose weight.
Stop looking for quick fixes that can compromise your health. Proper nutrition, exercise, and sleep are the only ways to lose weight and keep it off. Boring answer, but it is true.
