HCG is a natural protein, that when combined with a 500 calorie diet, can cause weight losses of 1/2 to 1 pound a day.

The difference between HCG and other weight loss programs is that the weight loss comes from storage areas (not critical areas of fat deposits — the heart, heel pads, intestines).

When the program is finished, a final diet for 3-6 weeks allows a person to remain at the new weight indefinitely.
