HCG drops accompany the HCG Diet and followers of this diet are adamant these “miracle drops” are the reason for their fat loss. Here’s the truth about HCG weight loss…
If you’re considering buying liquid HCG then you’ll want to read the information on this page!
We’ll look at exactly what’s in the drops themselves and whether or not you’ll burn more fat by including them in your diet.
What are HCG Drops?
The HCG diet originally prescribed HCG injections but due to a shortage in production liquid drops were marketed as the next best alternative.
People aware of the supposed weight loss benefits of HCG in it’s inject able form no longer had to worry about the side affects and thus a supplement craze was born.
However, there is a distinct difference between the substance in HCG in injection form and what’s in liquid HCG as HCG drops are a homeopathic equivalent of HCG itself.
In fact, the drops usually don’t even contain the “miracle” HCG and when they do it’s in trace amounts not even worth thinking about.
It’s ironic that the diet program based on HCG is coupled with a supplement that doesn’t actually contain the ingredient that’s supposed to be the key to fat loss!
So Why is Liquid HCG So Popular?
If liquid HCG doesn’t work then why are the drops so popular?
A fair question.
A quick glance at the HCG diet page on Facebook shows 65,000 people have liked the page and companies selling liquid HCG are making a tonne of money so what gives?
There’s one simple reason why I believe the popularity of these drops has remained intact:
If I were spending an obscene $90 for a mere 40 days worth of product I’d want to believe it was contributing to my weight loss too.
The reality is, the accompanying diet is so low in calories that you’d lose weight without the drops!
Proof That HGC Won’t Help You Lose Weight!
The United States FDA (Food and Drug Administration) officially stated that the drops are fraudulent and ineffective for weight loss.
This is backed up by the fact that the scientific studies on HCG reported the following:
- No reduction in appetite
- No indication that subjects would lose fat preferentially over lean muscle
- Suggested that the accompanying low calorie diet is unlikely to develop appropriate eating habits and therefore weight regain will be quicker once the diet ends
Hardly a resounding endorsement!
Elizabeth Miller of the FDA’s Internet fraud team was interviewed in
this article by USA Today
“We are aware of HCG products that claim to be homeopathic, but it is not recognized in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia,” she said, adding that they “are not recognized by the FDA as homeopathic drugs, so they are unapproved drugs and are illegal.”
The evidence presents a clear conclusion….
Why would you pay extortionate amounts of money for a supplement that’s illegal and doesn’t even work!
In summary, HCG drops are not worth your money.
If you’re still not convinced and the pictures online and enthusiastic forum posts make you want to believe the HCG diet does work then I recommend you read this:
