Doctor :   let me explain it to you
Doctor :   SInce the doctor has advised you on HCG diet
Doctor :   this is a new diet which has come up in the recent tims
Doctor :   this is effective for weight loss
Doctor :   the concept being hormonal
Doctor :   HCG hormone would be injected and weight loss aimed accordingly with diet modifications
Doctor :   It has been proved that one would lose a good amount of weight
Doctor :   but a drastic weight loss over a short period of time is not advisable
User :   losing 1.75 kilos per week is too fast?
Doctor :   I suggest you to seek help of a HCG diet specialist and get one designed for you, do not plan all by yourself
User :   yes
Doctor :   yes, it is fast
User :   but where can i get the hcg diet specialist. and where to get the hormone injections??
User :   there are no pills instead?
Doctor :   the aim is to make one lose weight as much as the body can tolerate
Doctor :   with diet and physical activity , one loses weight over time
User :   so that means i will possible reach a plateau
Doctor :   crash diets, and other types of weight management may harm your body
Doctor :   pills are available
Doctor :   but even their use must be made with caution
Doctor :   I suggest you to consult a dietitian and a fitnees expert on this
Doctor :   since HCG diet is hormonal, you may need a physician review too before you go on this diet plan
Doctor :   hcg diet helps in loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day
User :   ok i understand. does the HCG hormone may have side effects?
Doctor :   yes , it can have side effects
Doctor :   it is a hormone based diet , hence we expect hormonal changes
User :   i understand it. i will try to find an HCG diet expert
User :   then
User :   so he can advice me about the whole plan.
Doctor :   yes , but before that get an examination done by a physician and then opt for the diet
User :   i have done this
User :   already
User :   blood, hormone and etc exams
User :   i went through them in the local clinic
User :   and everything is so fine
Doctor :   headachr , thrombosis, may be the side effects
Doctor :   you could ask your doctor if it is safe for you to try this diet
User :   ok... any other way to lose 70 kilos in 40 weeks ( 1.75 kilos per week) that u have in mind doctor?
