Hello everyone, I am overweight and I would like to lose my extra weight. I tried many ways but nothing worked. I consulted a doc at a nearby clinic in Toronto(Pinewood natural health centre) and he suggested to follow the HCG diet for rapid weight loss. He says that hcg diet is used under the tongue, not into your body and it has no side-effects. Has anyone used this hormone or any kind of oral hormone before, in order to lose weight? I read a couple of mixed reviews.
