Found out some interesting information about the hcg stuff I am taking to lose weight. It is also called the pregnancy hormone. Apparently, during pregnancy this hormone doubles to allow the body to use the excess fat stored within it as fuel for both mother and child. So if I take it, along with my regular diet which is a low calorie one, I can lose the weight I want with very little effort. As I have diabetes, it is very difficult for me to lose that weight. So far I have lost ten pounds in the last few weeks and they are still coming off. I am so happy that I found this to help with my weight loss.
