I quit the HCG diet last week. While the results were intoxicating the side effects were frustrating and worrisome. I lost 1.2 more pounds the next day. However, I am now up 3 from there. I'm glad to be off of HCG. I hope I can put my mind to a true healthy diet and make the lifestyle changes I need to make. Based on history the outlook is doubtful. But, I only have to make the permanent life changes once, right?
