The Cura Romana Diet &  Research

In August 2011, a research paper was published by the International Journal of Medical Sciences on hCG and weight loss and its findings. It has shown that it does in fact assist weight loss and hunger and lowers cholesterol. It would be nice to see a follow-up article which reflects these findings.

Dear Anita
Next week's DietDoc Topic also makes mention of the use of HCG by models, and the reaction of health authorities warning against the use of such injections because of serious side-effects including gallstones, stroke and blood clots. Yes, the HCG injections do suppress the appetite and may lower cholesterol because of resultant weightloss (this happens whenever subjects lose weight no matter what method they use), but they are primarily intended for fertility treatments under the supervision of medical doctors experienced in this application and should not be handed out to individuals wanting to lose weight because the associated risks are too great.
