Don’t Be Fooled by the hCG Diet! It's Not Worth It.

Published December 17th, 2013 by Admin

It may be the latest weight-loss fad, but according to the International Journal of Obesity, the hCG Diet isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Combining doses of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) with an extremely low-calorie diet to burn off weight actually isn’t a new concept. The idea has been around since the 1960s – but now, as the diet hits the mainstream, an increasing number of people are spending thousands of dollars a year to purchase the expensive hormone from weight-loss clinics.

Unfortunately, these patients may be getting more than they bargained for.  The treatment can be risky and unsanitary – many dieters purchase the hormone over the Internet, which poses a huge contamination hazard.

What’s more, the hCG Diet increases the risk of male breast development (gynecomastia), male breast cancer and Creutzfeldt-Jakob (mad cow) disease.

Clearly, it’s not worth the risk.
