Name of the Diet/Weight Loss Program or Service: 


When did you follow this diet/weight loss program?: 

March 2012



My Review 

I just want to let everyone out there know, that if you are purchasing HCG Drops, the first active ingredient should say HCG. When you purchase your drops please test it on a pregnancy test. If it comes back negative, then your drops do not have any HCG in them, which is the main active ingredient in the HCG Diet. Please be warn that betterthanhcg.com does not have any HCG in it and the online representative stated the following: Our Better Than HCG doesn't contain the hormone. The FDA has banned the use of the HCG hormone so we are not able to sell it any more. If you would like to return them you may if not let me know. Above statement is FALSE. If your taking real HCG then it will have HCG in the product. Your best bet is to inject the shots. Good luck everyone!
