I am the person who, no matter what I do, cannot lose weight. I had heard about HCG Drops and decided to give these a try since I would only be $20 out of pocket - and I'm so glad I did! I did a lot of research online first and read Dr Simeon's 'Pounds and Inches' and have been following the 500 cal diet along with taking the drops and after 4 weeks, I have lost 22 lbs and 16 1/2 inches! I am currently on thyroid medication and even I can lose weight! The trick is: I have to follow the 500 cal diet with NO cheating - I cheated for one full day and I didn't lose any weight (didn't gain any, either) for 5 days afterwards, even with the 'apple day'. My goal was to lose 50 lbs and in one month, I'm nearly halfway there! Since this isn't actual HCG, there isn't an appetite suppressant in it, so I would have hunger pains on and off for the first 2 weeks, but I ate fiber wafers when I got really, really hungry and that took care of the problem. And it's key to drink one liter of water a day to flush out your system (and help fill you up)! I also hold the drops under my tongue for 30 seconds first and then make sure not to eat or drink for 15-20 minutes afterward. I took away one star because the product needs to be refrigerated and that's really inconvenient if you're traveling (hence the cheat day) and it's also a dark liquid so it can be difficult to gauge how much you're taking. The taste is mint chocolate and that takes a bit of getting used to as well. Overall, I am thrilled at the unexpected results I've had with these drops!
