Hello, I am new to the forum, but not fitday. I thought I would join in. I was on the HCG diet last summer, and the pounds fell off daily. I was truely amazed. I was not dehydrated. I drank lots of water and tea and walked a lot. I took the regular HCG under the tounge, and not the homeopathic drops. I kept the weight off for 9 months, but then starting eating too much. I am starting back on the diet again today. It's nice to read your posts. We can all help each other.
