I was not sure and decided to google and read about it. I also asked questions to the doctor and staff about HCG.   After all that, I even saw an episode of Dr. Oz that talked about it.   I am now happy to say that using the shots and eating a healthy portion control diet,  I have been able to lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks! I don’t regret at all and will continue the program until I reach my goal of losing 35 pounds. I highly recommend it!!    Yvette
