There is a new diet fad called the HCG diet. It consists of taking an injection or drop of HCG and eating only 500 calories per day. It claims to give you more energy, burn your fat, and decrease your craving for sweets. This helps you lose weight very quickly. I read three articles about it and they all had conflicting claims about the diet.
It is pretty easy to identify how good the information is in each of the articles. The first 2 seem pretty bias about the information and even have a place to click to purchase the diet supplement. They claim that there is no better way for you to shed unwanted pounds. It claims that it is a very fast and very safe way to lose weight. The last article showed the harmful effects of the HCG diet. It tells the reader that you should look somewhere else for weight loss because of all the negative aspects of using it. It shows how there is no scientific evidence supporting the diet. It even quotes the FDA in saying that no evidence has been presented to substantiate the claims made for HCG as a weight-loss aid. This was the only fact with information to back up its claim. This is why I think that this article is more accurate than the others. I'm curious to see what other people think about this new debated diet.
