Why I’m a Good Person to Test the HCG Diet

I’ve got a few reasons why I think I’m a good person to test this diet. The first, and most important qualification, is that I’m a skeptic by nature. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Since HCG claims to reduce just your body fat, I bought a scale that will measure my body fat. I will post all my results here on this blog, so you can see for yourself what it does.

Second, I’m really not a dieter. I went on Atkins once for two months (decent success), and tried Weight Watchers for three weeks (not so successful). That’s it. When I was on Weight Watchers, it seemed that the program worked based on calorie restriction. All I know is that I was HUNGRY on it. (Never was hungry on Atkins.) If a 500-calorie per day diet is all HCG requires, and they promise you won’t be hungry on it, I’m your candidate. It will really have to work as advertised so I don’t starve to death. I am very intolerant of being hungry. :)

Third. This diet claims to “reset your hypothalamus”. Because my weight gain is due to hormone issues, I’m very interested in this aspect of it. Will I still have hormone issues contributing to weight gain after using HCG?

So there you have it. Show me the money, HCG!
