Has she tried to steer you towards the homeopathic hCG diet, ....

Just to clarify -- "homeopathic" and "hCG" don't belong in the same phrase. Nothing even remotely homeopathic about the hCG supplementation that goes along with the 500 cal diet. It's not homeopathic in dose or preparation. And it's not homeopathic in terms of prescription principles. It's a hormone produced by the placenta after conception.

There are many who feel that any weight loss is due to the severely restricted calorie intake. But there are people I know, and patients of physicians I know, who have been unable to lose weight on 500 cal/day by itself, but were able to lose exceptional amounts--and without hunger and with good energy--once they added the hCG injections. It certainly doesn't work for everyone, and is not smart to try without a doctor's supervision. But not everyone's metabolic elements are the same. There are a great many ways in which there are individual differences. And there do truly seem to be some individuals for whom hCG + this diet really is the right move.
