Aug, 30th 2018 5:44 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

Im ecstatic! It has been about a month since I last emailed you and I continue to lose weight. Your plan is absolutely amazing and I havent felt this good about myself in about 15 years!

I think the last we spoke I had lost about 50 pounds now Im happily expecting to hit the 65 pound mark next week. I am so thankful for your generosity in sharing this plan with the world James. It has given me such a confidence boost and little by little Im moving back into the world again!

Hi James, all I can say is look at pictures. I lost 16 lbs in the first 4 days and a total of 60 lbs so far. The plan makes sense and very easy to follow. it was a little difficult at first because Im a junk food eater. But your plan got me off the junk and my body only craves good food now.

Thanks, Daniel P, Texas


Hey James

This is Tracey. I bought your plan in June 2014 and since then I’ve lost 80 lbs with your plan. My days are pretty crazy with 3 kids to take care of but even with my busy schedule it was still easy to follow your plan. I had my friend try your plan and she had great results as well! I tried to get her to snap some selfies to send to you but she’s a little shy. LOL! Thanks again for all your help.

Take careTracy H, Minnesota, USA


Hey, I purchased your diet back at the start of March after being told at a job interview that I was to large & would intimidate clients. This was the kick start I needed, I always knew that I was big, and wanted to do something about it but never really had the motivation. I tracked down the 18in4 diet on the internet & purchased it from you.

I was very skeptical at the start as to how someone could possibly lose that amount of weight in 4 days & keep it off. It is now 6 months later and I have gone from 281 lbs to 196 lbs, I have lost over 80 lbs in less than 6 months. I have managed to keep every pound off and still enjoy a great new healthy diet!!!! I also run around 6 miles every other night (something I couldnt even attempt 6 months ago) & regularly attend a gym..Just working on the 6 pack now!!

I just wanted to say thanks; you really deserve a medal for this diet. If people are serious about changing their diet, they need to contact you. I have told all my friends that it works & I know that some of them have already purchased the plan also!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Ross, Chicago


My name is Michelle and I just wanted to say THANK YOU for laying this plan out, it was so easy to follow. I have tried for years to lose weight and nothing has worked as quickly as your program. I lost 13 pounds in 4 days and I am so excited about that. I have used your program just as you said to as a kick start and I have got to say I am still losing

I have lost 33 pounds in 9 days just by using the foods from your plan. Again THANK YOU!!!!!

Michelle, NY


Ive been on the diet for just over 3 weeks now and Ive lost 28 lbs so far. During my first 4 days, I lost 16 lbs.This diet really works, I have dropped 2 Jean sizes in 3 weeks and my old clothes are starting to fall off me.Thanks for this marvelous diet, Im starting to feel great. Ive enclosed a picture. Thanks again, only 16 lbs to lose

Ricki, UK


I used to sport a pear shaped body ha-ha, and hold a lot in my face and neck. At this point, being in March, I came across your diet. When I started the diet, I was at 168lbs, and in my first four days I had lost 12 lbs. So I once again went back on the diet. I still wanted to be down to at least 140lbs. I now weigh 142 lbs

So, in total I lost 26 lbs going from 168 lbs to 142 lbs!

Thanks Natalie, USA


James check this out!!! These are before and after the 4 day plan. Thanks to you 15 BIG ones! Started diet Mon-Thurs —weighed this AM–15lbs off in 4 days. I feel so much better and my eating habits will change thanks to you.




Well I did the plan last week and lost 16 pounds which I was very happy about and everyone noticed. I have tried many diets and none worked, but this one did and most of all it taught me discipline and that I dont need to eat the wrong foods, treats are good but not everydayso cheersjust thought I would say thanks

Darren, TX


I love you!! I want say thanks, you helped me finally get my life back together. Just wanted to let you know I was 257lbs and I weighed in at 240lbs yesterday in 4 days. I will never forget you.

Hilary, Fort Myers


GOD BLESS THE DAY I FOUND YOU!!! I cant thank you enough for what you do for people!!! Youve changed our lives! What is the most amazing thing about you and your plan is that it WORKS. I dont know how much I lost but I can tell by the clothes I fit in its a miracle!!!!

Thanks a lot!!!

Martin, BostonP.S. I will NEVER forget you!!!!! I would pay $270, if I had to


How are you? My name is Terrance from New York. I was very skeptical about your diet plan. I did not follow your plan 100% to the letter but, in spite of one cheat after four days I still lost 16 pounds. My man you are truly a genius!!! I am going to go back on it in another week and do it 100% all the way. I would have probably lost those few extra pounds. I just fell in love with you man cause I have been trying to find the answers for a long time. God Bless,

Terrance, New York


I just wanted to say massive thanks! I started on Monday and today (Friday afternoon), I am 17 pounds lighter. I had my reservations but its worked brilliantly and I cant thank you enough. I Will be doing it again shortly. Thanks again

Sam, New York———————————————————————————

I have just completed the 4 day program with amazing results I have lost approx 15lbsmy husband and children still cant believe it!


Kerrie, Santa Monica


It has been some time since I was in touch with you Mar-16th. Since I last wrote to you, I have lost 42 lbs. I feel so much better and have received several compliments. This meal plan is excellent and the food is very good and sensible. Because its so simple, its easy to follow. At times I am invited out or go to a restaurant I try to be careful. The next day I start over again and repeat the 4 days with a little break or a treat in between. My meals are ready in 5 to 10 minutes. I drink lots of water with a little lemon juice. Thank you again for this wonderful meal plan.

Jane, Portland


Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I lost 12 pounds in 4 days. Its an amazing plan to follow and I wasnt even hungry or had cravings. I have tried every diet in the book, injections, well known diet clinics and a variety of diet pills and nothing has been this quick and easy to follow. The quick results help to encourage me to continue until I reach my desired goal. Many thanks

Lynn , Ontario Canada


Hello, I bought your diet plan last Thursday Started my diet on Friday and finished it yesterday. I weighed this morning and I lost 14 lbs in 4 days. A big well done to you, and to all those skeptics that hate crash diets, it doesnt Have to be a crash diet, it has showed me how to eat a healthier lifestyle and I will continue to eat considering the food groups I mix. Thanks

Tracey, UK


I do not consider myself an optimist nor a pessimist, the dam glass is just the wrong size. Having said that, I would have bet my last nickel that it wouldnt worked. Being I had $27.05 I decided I had nothing to lose but $27. All I can say is WOW! 12 lbs later I figure that is about $1.50 a pound! Like many Ive seen and heard all the advice but you had one simple thing that hit home, The Reminder. I have also decided to REMEMBER where I was when I decided I need to change and how I felt.

Phyllis, Vermont


I have to admit I didnt believe in your program but I still bought it in the hopes that maybe there was a bite of truth to it. James I apologize for doubting you and thank you, I lost 14 lbs in 4 days and I feel great. My daughter and her friends all want to try it now! Thanks again.

Jennifer, Utah


Absolutely, impressively, awesome!!!. I have tired many diets and all I could say at the end of these 4 days was WOW. Not only did I lose 13.5lbs, I feel so much better, even mentally. I finished the diet on Saturday and stepped on the scale today and had lost 3 more lbs. Now I have incorporated most of the foods from the diet in my daily eating, and dont add all the condiments that I use to. I work midnight and the diet worked great!

Dee, Indiana


Ive tried everything. But whenever I was dieting, either the results were too slow, or I felt like I was starving myself (and thats not healthy). And even if I did lose the weight, it always came back. After using your diet, I realized that the reason I was hungry all the time was because I was eating the wrong kinds of foods and my body wasnt getting the nutrition it needed. Not only did you help me lose the 20 lbs Ive been trying to lose for the last 3 or 4 years, but Ive kept it off for 6 months. And unlike other plans, I feel healthy. Thanks James.

Brenda, UK


Thank you, thank you, youve changed my life and appearance. Too bad I didnt know about this sooner. To date I have lost 24lbs and counting. I will tell everyone I know who wants to lose weight.

Beth, UK


James Ive battled with my weight all of my life and used every diet under the sun. After I completed the first 4 days my wife was in shock to see how much weight I lost. Im still following your program and Im happy to say I lost a total of 27lbs. My wife thanks you too LOL!

Gary, Texas


James, hats off to you! It worked like you said and I still cant believe it, I lost 14 lbs in my first 4days and 28lbs at the end of 10 days, there no stopping me now! HA! HA! Cheers!Sue, UK


Ive tried other diets, but none of them have ever worked for me. Atkins, South Beach, they never seem to work like they said they would. However, after being fortunate enough to diet with 18in4, I have been able to meet my goals and I feel GREAT while doing it! Thanks!

Carey, Seattle


I just finished up the four day plan. It was just what I needed to get me back into my healthy eating habits I lost about 16lbs, this was just perfect. I was stuck in a rut of choosing unhealthy foods, but now that I am able see results and feel how happy I am to be doing what is right for my body, I am back to my motivated self. Thanks so much! What a wonderful gift you are sharing. Take care

Andre, USA


Hi James, Its the morning after the diet, I lost 18lbs and I feel great, better than I have in a long time.

Thank you so much for this diet!!

Terry , Ohio


Hi, my name is Benita; I just had to email you to say how grateful I am for your program. Like so many others, I have tried everything (literally!!) I was struggling with under active thyroid which means your metabolism is so low, it doesnt have the ability to burn fat. I still decided to try the program. All I can say is it works, absolutely.

South Beach Diet – Food List – Freedieting

South Beach Diet – Fort Washington, PA – Yelp

Aug, 27th 2018 10:41 am, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith


I decided to go on the South Beach Diet and had good experience in the beginning….before I actually spent money. I was able to get someone on the phone etc. However, now that i’ve committed and i’ve been with the plan for about two weeks now, I can’t get anyone’s help. They don’t answer emails, live chat and you will be on hold forever. I’m especially disappointed that they won’t respond to my emails. My email clearly states i’m a paying customer. Also, there is conflicting information in what they send you in regards to “Phase 1 and Phase 2” and what you see on their website. I’ve yet to get this questioned answered. The food however is pretty good for processed food and I have lost weight.

We decided to give this a try to get us back on track. Hubby and I each ordered, and the first month, we did shed pounds. However, we have to supplement with lots of veggies so I would make this a pricy diet. Two and a half months in, I really don’t understand what I am doing. The app is free, and I use the food tracker. The only thing I am sure of is my daily calorie limit which is 12-1300 a day. The first month we stretched the meals with cauliflower rice. Although the delivery is massive, individual meals are scant. The bars are so hard I was afraid I would break a tooth. The food is terrible. The quality of meat they use is poor. Everything is processed. Some of the soups actually made me gag. I have a months worth of food in my freezer and pantry and the only thing I like are the shakes. Even though I have lost 27 pounds in 2.5 months, this diet is really not my thing. We are now actively offering everyone who comes to visit SBD food to take home. If you are looking for something that tastes good, skip this one.

I’ve tried several diet plan and meal deliveries. I was used to weekly deliveries from other programs so when I received the entire month of meals, I was surprised. First problem was that there were too many whey protein shakes. My body cannot digest whey protein so they had to go in trash. Then there were too many meal replacement/snack bars. I never liked snack bars so there they went in trash. So that must be 1/3 if shipment? Frozen meals all gave me bad heartburn and diarrhea. So they went in the trash. The program looked convenient and “healthy.” I hardly have time or energy to cook but wanted my health back on track. After throwing away almost $500 in the trash, I’m back to cooking whole30. The program that worked well in the past. I guess I can’t skip that cooking process for weight loss when your health needs to improve at the same time. Super expensive lesson learned.

I haven’t even started eating the food yet and already my experience has been bad. In my last review I mentioned how I was given a hard time about substituting some foods in the first week right?Well most of my food arrived a couple of days ago except for the substitutions and 2 non substitutions. I have not received any tracking information on it. They do not put a rush or anything for any order which leaves me with my next complaint. They send you a box of 7 high protein shakes in individual packets (think like oatmeal packets). When I opened the box of non frozen items (in which the shake box was in) there was chocolate powder all over the box….some of the shake packets were torn. I used the chat feature again so I have that paper trail. I was told that the box of substitutions (and hopefully the 2 missing frozen items that weren’t sent previously) would arrive separately and again no tracking information was provided. The woman on the chat said she couldn’t send me the shakes for another 48 hours (not sure why…). I waited and chatted with someone else the next day. They said they will send them out. THEY WOULD NOT SEND RUSH DELIVERY!!! That would have been the right thing to do. I have had to delay my diet a little less than 2 weeks due to how they run things.

I’ve only been doing this diet for 4 days. The food tastes better than other plans I’ve tried. However, I only wanted to do it for a month, to kick start my program. There was an option for an autoship program, or a one month program. I chose the one month. Then I got a call that my “next shipment” would be shipping soon.I called customer service to ask them to discontinue the autoship, since I never asked for it in the first place. The customer service agent kept trying to get me to continue, said there’s an “a la carte” option, blah blah blah. But since they already were trying to force autoship on me, now I don’t trust them.I had to say about 5 times that I wanted to cancel any further shipments. Finally she agreed that she had cancelled it but told me that there is a cancellation fee of $125 !!!!!! Can you believe that bulls*** /?????? What a scam. It doesn’t cost them anything to cancel a plan. My next shipment wouldn’t be due for several weeks.Unfortunately, this is the trouble with many things that you sign up for on line. They just sign you up for things you haven’t ordered. I will now file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau.

My experience with the South Beach Diet was not fulfilling. Like Laura below, I only wanted a short term (1 month) program which was “advertised” on the promo popup ad. After receiving a huge order of “meals & bars” which would feed a family of four, I was frustrated to find I couldn’t get all the stuff in my freezer. The bars were so hard I nearly broke my teeth. Some of the “food” tasted like something even a dog would not eat…nor would I give it to a dog. I echo all of the reviews below & experienced the same problems. I hated Nutrisystem & thought (thru advertising) that this was a better program. BUYER BEWARE !!! Nutrisystem recently bought South Beach Diet & you can see it on the map that pops up on the South Beach website…it shows the SBD address & the pin on the map shows “Nutrisystem.”. Really!!?? The company should be reviewed by the Better Business Bureau.

This is a scam I paid 400 for food that only lasted 2.5 weeks I called to cancel and they told me there would be $125 cancellation fee and that my second month order was already processed. The food was good but not worth the money they consider a nut bar a meal. For $14 a day there should be more than a powder shake and a couple power bars. DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY

Wouldn’t waste my time with this company or diet. Yes I lost a few pounds. After your 1st order you have to order at least $150 more if you want to cancel membership. They send you reviews to rate foods but would probably take you at least 30 minutes to do so. It’s stupid. I would give the food 2-3 stars because the stuffed chicken And some of the breakfast bars were ok. Very unhappy!!!

I really wish I had checked Yelp about this diet before I tried it. The food is really low quality! The snack bars and shakes are OK but the frozen meals are mostly bad; low quality, highly processed meat stuff with thick flavorless goo that pretends to be “sauce”. Then I got caught in there trap with the “auto-ship” option. Decided after one month of disappointment to cancel but then discovered that you “agree” that they will charge you $125 for cancelling unless you take two months worth of stuff. This you will discover in a well buried notice that you can find in the ordering process after clicking one of the many links available in the ordering form and reading the fine print. !! It’s a rip-off. DON’T DO IT.

The food sent by this plan is disgusting — meat is low-quality and flavorless and the plan sends you massive amounts of food all at once that no regular person has room for in their freezer. That leaves you also with lots of packaging to have to recycle. They also make it nearly impossible for you to cancel the plan; you can’t do it online, you have to call to do so and when you do, they transfer you to a highly trained retention specialist whose sole job is to talk you out of canceling. I persisted, but the retention specialist then told me about some hidden wording that said I still must pay them $125 more!!! Seriously? My freezer is still full of their gross food that I haven’t eaten in 2 months and likely never will, yet they insist I still owe them $125?? I think not.

I joined the South Beach diet delivery club and received one month of food, plus a thick booklet outlining the plan. The program was hard to follow and was not fully explained in the materials. The tasteless prepackaged food was laced with chemicals with unpronounceable names. Because they sent an entire month’s worth of food in one delivery, the frozen items (and it was pretty much all frozen items) had to be stored in two different refrigerators.I followed the diet for one month and lost no weight. Even worse, I’m now on the South Beach email list and, despite many requests to take me off, the South Beach people keep spamming me.

If I could give it 0 stars I would. The food is terrible. The bars are tasty, but expensive. Everything else is expensive and tastes awful. Threw out a bunch of stuff after one bite or just looking at it. The South Beach Diet concept is good; the meals as part of the delivery service are terrible and expensive. Don’t do it!

My family have been using South Beach recipe books for years, so when the mail order option appeared, we were initially enthusiastic. The images and the “celebrity” they used for marketing were puzzling to me, but I tried it anyway. When I tried to cancel my order, they refused. Then they tried to convince me I had committed to yet another order (I had not). They made a fraudulent charge to my credit card and tried to ship me more of their product. I sent it back “return to sender” and wrote “did not order, do not want” on the packaging. My credit card company (Capital One) fought for me and, as far as I know, fined South Beach Diet for the fraudulent charge they made to my account. What I learned is that you can’t just call the South Beach Diet people and say “I want to cancel.” You have to say “I want to cancel” and force the call center person to stay on-topic. Don’t let them distract you with questions for *you* about anything else. Even though you said you want to cancel, they will use this distraction to imagine that you do not actually want to end your relationship with South Beach Diet. Say: “I want to cancel, and I don’t want to talk to you about anything else. Reverse the charge. I am ending this business relationship effective immediately.”

Beware! I purchased their 40% off special plan 3 weeks ago – I paid $278.90. Today I see NO SPECIAL but food plan is available at $299 with FREE shipping. There were a couple of foods that are edible, some are like cardboard like the “vegatable fritatta” smoothies contain Malodextrin, and 3x more sodium than in other brands. I was not happy with my purchase. However, when you want to cancel after the first week, because you are not happy with product, you are given the choice of paying an additional $125 because you got the “autoship special” or pay another $200 for food you can’t stand in the first place. I opted to pay the $125 just to get out of it. P.S. Yelp you should be able to give -stars!

False advertising–the food does not look at all like the advertised meals!! I had made recipes out of the South Beach Diet cookbook and found them to be really good. So I was excited when I saw that they had “fully prepared meals” that could be shipped to me. The young man at South Beach told me that some of them were freshly prepared and a few would need to be frozen. So he suggested putting the the freshly prepared meals in the refrigerator and using them first and then freezing the others (which he made it sound like they were freshly prepared too). So imagine my surprise when my 2 week shipment arrived and it was ALL frozen dinners, just like something I could have bought at the grocery store for a lot less (I paid $155 for 2 weeks of meals). I tried a couple of them and they were truly AWFUL! I looked at the boxes and the meals were laden with chemicals. Perhaps they are lower in fat and sodium than other frozen dinners, but they were not what I was expecting at all. I called them to see if I could get a partial refund (even half) and after waiting an inordinate amount of time to speak to a manager, she flat out said no, that their refund policy was “no refunds”. I tried a second time, because I felt that it was the principle of the thing and was again told no. This is a textbook example of FALSE ADVERTISING–Do not order this! Go and buy the cookbook and make meals yourself if you can.

Vegetarian Diets – Freedieting

Aug, 19th 2018 6:45 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

People choose vegetarian diets for a number of reasons; an aversion to killing animals, a reluctance to eat meat, or a simple choice towards a different way of life.

There are a number of different vegetarian diets. Although it need not be a completely restrictive diet. The core theme across all vegetarian diets is the avoidance of all red meat (such as beef, lamb, and pork).

As vegetarian diets are based on consumption of fruits, vegetables, nuts and whole grains, these diets are high in fiber. They have other health advantages in that they are normally lower in calories, saturated fat, and refined sugars.

With the correct understanding and careful planning, all types of vegetarian diet can provide adequate nutrition.

The main nutrients that must be emphasized are; protein, iron, calcium, zinc, riboflavin, and vitamin B12.

Lacto/ovo diets provide protein by means of milk and egg white.

On a vegan diet, protein needs must be met by legumes (nuts, peas, lentils, beans, etc). Combining beans and other legumes with various dishes can provide the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of protein normally a gram per kilogram of body weight. While Soy milk is an excellent source of protein, it has high estrogen levels which, being a factor in the physical maturing process, is undesirable for the vegan child. Calcium for vegans is available in vegetables like broccoli.

Veganism is more of a philosophy than just a diet. A vegan has an ethical standard to treat all animals with respect and love. Therefore, a true vegan does not use any animal products including those for clothing or cosmetics.

Many use the term vegan interchangeably with vegetarian, but actually it isnt the same. All vegans are vegetarians but not all vegetarians are vegans.

There are many processed foods that are made specifically for vegans: hot dogs, burgers, taco filling, ground beef, chicken strips, mayonnaise, sour cream, ice cream, chili (Hormel). These products are made with meat substitutes such as soy our texturized wheat gluten.

Weight loss and maintenance for both men and women becomes more and more difficult with age. There are a number of factors that influence your ability to lose weight and keep weight off. While proper diet and regular exercise are both important, many find that diet and exercise tends to become much less effective with age. This change over time is often related to a hormone imbalance, which can significantly lessen the ability to lose body fat while maintaining lean muscle. Fortunately, these hormone deficiencies can be treated through Hormone Replacement Therapy, there are also a number of weight loss aids and diet programs available to help shed that spare as well.

The thyroid is a small gland located in the lower part of the neck regulating several aspects of metabolism, heart rate and how quickly calories are burned. The main hormones produced by the thyroid are Liothyronine (T3) and Throxine (T4), elevated levels of these hormones can result in a condition known as hyperthyroidism (fast metabolism) while low levels of these hormones can result in hypothyroidism (slow metabolism). Those with hypothyroidism will have a very difficult time losing or maintaining weight. By optimizing these thyroid hormones, the speed and function of metabolism is greatly improved allowing for easier weight loss and maintenance. Common medications used to optimize thyroid levels include Synthroid, Armour Thyroid and Nature Thyroid. While Synthroid is not the active form of thyroid hormone, Armour Thyroid and Nature Thyroid contain both T3 and T4 as well as other components of the thyroid gland.

Phentermine is an FDA approved medication for weight loss used to suppress appetite, a critical step in managing caloric intake. Phentermine may be recommended as part of an overall weight loss plan for those who are significantly overweight, not those who want to lose just a few pounds. Phentermine may be a great way to kick start weight loss. However, in order to maintain this weight loss over time, users of Phentermine should also incorporate healthy eating and regular exercise habits into their weight loss plan rather than relying solely on a reduced appetite. The average weight loss from this medication alone can exceed 10 pounds in a month, it can also be used to assist in the HCG diet. Phentermine is not a good weight loss option for those with heart disease, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid or who are currently pregnant or breast feeding.

The HCG diet was originally created by the British doctor A.T. Simeons. The HCG diet plan was initially intended for obese individuals at a high risk of serious health issues due to their weight. Over time, the HCG diet has been modified to meet the needs of today and to also include what we now know about diet and weight loss. What makes the HCG Diet stand out from other weight loss methods is the fact that it uses a hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. Usually found in women at the early stages of pregnancy, the role of HCG is to support the body in the fat burning process, particularly when fat is broken down and used to feed the baby. When HCG is used in part of a weight loss program, the bodys metabolism is naturally stimulated to burn fat at an impressive rate of up to one pound a day!

The hormone HCG does not make you lose weight, the diet involved is responsible for weight loss. However, injections of HCG used in conjunction with the diet change how this weight is lost. HCG injections act to prevent the body from losing muscle while under a caloric deficit (calories burned greater than calories consumed). By creating an anabolic (muscle building) state, HCG helps counteract the catabolic (muscle breakdown) state of a caloric deficit. Why is this important? Under a caloric deficit, there is typically a large amount of muscle that is lost along with fat. Because muscle is dense and heavy, loss of muscle can look very good on the scale. In reality, when muscle is lost, it is very bad for the body contour and metabolism. A slowed metabolism often leads to the regaining of all weight lost and then some, additionally, quite a bit of work is needed to build back the muscle that has been lost. Because HCG protects muscle from being lost under a caloric deficit, the result is purely fat loss. This muscle also allows for a stronger metabolism and ensures the weight lost remains long gone after the diet is complete. The HCG diet duration is typically three to six weeks.

Although the hormone HCG is only found in pregnant women, HCG used as a diet aid works the same for both men and women. Most men on the HCG diet program report losing between 0.5 to 1 pound per day and just as in women, men are able to successfully keep the weight off afterward. Another great benefit for men using the HCG diet is its effects on the male hormone testosterone. In men, HCG actually stimulates an increase of natural testosterone production by the testicles. This increase in testosterone production results in a number of additional benefits for men.

HCG drops commonly marketed as Homeopathic HCG, are not real HCG, period. Companies offering homeopathic HCG are simply capitalizing on the HCG diets great success. There are a large number of these HCG supplements available without a Doctors prescription, all claiming to be just as effective as prescription HCG. In no way, shape or form are these HCG products, claims or results comparable to that of prescription HCG injections. Remember, real pharmaceutical grade HCG usually requires a prescription and is most often supplied in injection form. There are pharmaceutical grade HCG drops available although these typically require a higher dose to be as effective as the injections.

By restoring key hormones to an optimum level through Hormone Replacement Therapy, the adverse effects of aging are improved and often reversed helping you to look and feel your best. No longer do you have to live at the mercy of low hormone levels and their impact on your quality of life. Dont let a completely treatable and reversible condition like low hormone levels spoil the enjoyment of your later years. Millions of men and women experience the symptoms of aging, many of which have benefited by taking action with Hormone Replacement Therapy. Dont be the one to let it go untreated, GET STARTED TODAY!

The 3 Best HCG Drops on The Market Customer Reviews …

Aug, 13th 2018 9:48 pm, Article Recommended by Dr. J. Smith

5 Reasons Why These 3 Drops Are Ratedto be The Best

Before we break down these 5reasons, its important to understand why pure HCG drops are crucial to weight loss and muscle gain. As you start to break down the reasons you should be working with an official HCG diet, you will see that you shouldnt just dismiss the notion of supplements.

Too often people dismiss the notion as a shortcut, but youre going to see that this is 100% natural, and helps the bodys natural systems. With the natural systems going at full homeostasis, youll end up with results that matter.

First and foremost, look at finding what Googles search volume is for the 3 major brands. There are several major brands that you should look at.

Each one of these has a high volume alongside keywords that are related to liquid HCG and more.

For instance, look into Google trends, and the Google keyword tool as well.

These features from the mighty search engine will show that HCG Complex, HCG 1234(it is now replaced by Nu Image Medical), and HCG Triumph are amidst the highest searched for brands and options.

The average is in the several thousands, and its because these are the top brands that real users are looking for and reordering with.

The measure of a good company can be seen within the confines of customer satisfaction, results, and honest weight loss reviews. When you look for the best drops diet to buy, make sure that you do not neglect to look at these metrics. These options will denote whether or not you are going to be receiving the top quality supplements.

Its easy to adhere to the notion that you are getting the most effective, but how do you determine what is only marketing talk and what is actually real? Thats what many people have to deal with on a regular basis. Thats where before and after results, success rates, and reviews come into play. A quick search will reveal that bloggers and experts in nutrition are going to deem these 3 top contenders as some of the highest quality.

Cutting to the chase of what really makes the best HCG product work, is the ingredient list. Many people complain that supplement companies lie about whats in the products that they are selling. Thats not the case when you look into the quality that you will be receiving from these brands.

Each company has been able to produce the best possible product by aligning themselves with non-GMO ingredients, gluten free capsules, and a proprietary energy blend that is guaranteed to help you lose weight, and attain your fitness goals. They bank on that fact, and the pictures coming through prove it.

Peeling back the curtain of the fitness world, youll find that oralHCG and weight loss programs as a whole are part of a billion dollar industry. Finding a way to make weight loss affordable is rough. However, if you focus on HCG Complex, Nu Image Medical, and HCG Triumph, you will be saving money.

The reason is simple, youre not going to have to pay extra for food items, meetings, and nuisances that can drain your pocket book fast. Even if you were to purchase the most expensive of packages from these companies, you would still save money compared to the cost of larger scale weight loss programs.

Lets talk about the credibility of these companies. Each company has their own marketing plan, but each one is also backed by a high tier, and grade company. As you read the company information and the science that goes into the products, youll see that they are not only credible, they are number 1, 2, and 3 for a reason.

Each facility is inspected by the FDA, and each ingredient list is specific to the goal of weight loss and increasing HCG elements within the body. There are no surprises when you go with each solution.

At the end of the day, what good is all of this if theres no guarantee? When you focus on figuring out which real drops work the best in the market, do not forget to look for the guarantee that is behind each solution.

Regardless of which solution you decide to pick, you should know that you can get your money back from these companies. As long as you are honest with them, and you abide by the rules, you can get your full money back. They are not in the business of playing games, they are sincerely trying to help people.

This is known as a sublingual option ofhuman chorionic gonadotropin in the form of droplets. Widely considered a hormone like substance, HCG is created from the placenta when a person is pregnant. The hormone helps you to lose weight by stimulating the weight-loss breakdown of fat in the body. By increasing your HCG content, you increase the rate in which your body burns fat.

The answer to this question entirely depends on what you are looking for. For example, drops can be taken whenever but do not last as long as injections. Injections last longer, but require knowing where to inject.

A personwho tried HCG shots successfully lost weight up to 36 pounds over the course of 80 days. Meanwhile, another person using HCG droplets managed to lose weight 27 pounds in the first 32 days, and another 20 pounds in the next 30 days, which means the total weight loss using the drops were 47 pounds in 62 days.

The amount of a persons weight loss depends on various factors, some of which are genetic, and dietary patterns. In conclusion, both types of methodshave the same effectiveness.

Watchthe following video to see how these two sisters were doing it:

You can take HCG in either drop or injection form as discussed above. The amount that you take will depend entirely on the length of time you are looking to lose weight over. In addition, you will want to look at factors like your current weight, age, and height.

The long and the short of it is that sublingual version of the hormone is safe to use. Thousands of people have used it before you with little to no side effects. Contact your doctor if you are concerned about potential issues with other medications.

Minor side effects can include things like headaches and lightheadedness from a lack of food during Phase 2. Side effects in general rarely happen, especially if you are taking the right dosage.

You can take homeopathic drops for between 26-43 days long for the first single round. This will be enough time to get through the 4 phases of the diet. You will then want to take a break afterwards. The first 2 days include gorging on high fat foods when first starting injections.

You can begin seeing results in as little as a few weeks. Understand that every person will have results at different times thanks to their unique physiologies.

Absolutely. The key to using HCG effectively is to follow the diet restrictions provided in the instructions. Failure to do so will result in your body not responding correctly to the hormone and any gains being lost in the process.

Calorie intake is dependent upon what phase you are in. Phase 2 will see your calorie consumption dropping to around 500 calories a day, while Phase 3 will be used to ramp up calories a bit as you stabilize your new weight. Know that you will be on a low calorie diet during a lot of this to help the process be more effective. Complete guidelines are available on each hormone drop products.

Absolutely. Understand that intense exercises may not be the best idea when on a low calorie diet.

The dietary restraints are listed in guides written for the products. While following a similar set of guidelines, each one will have specific recommendations based on what they have found to work.

Avoid foods with high starch content.This includes things like legumes, artichokes, beets, potatoes, carrots, yams, water chestnuts, bananas, tangerines, grapes, mangos, prunes, and potatoes. In addition to reducing starch from your diet, be sure to bottom out your sugar consumption during this period as well.

It is recommended that you consume B12 with the diet. The B12 helps to reduce the risk of suddenly gaining weight after the diet is complete.

B12 is highly recommended while you are on the program. For other drugs, you may want to read the guides provided. If you are still uncertain, then check with your doctor before beginning to ensure that complications will be kept at a minimum.

No, its not. Human chorionic gonadotropin is initially devoted to pregnancy and has never been formally designated for diet. This method is an adoption derived from research conducted by DrAlbert Theodore William Simeons.

Typically, after the high fat phase, you will enter a low calorie diet. The low calorie phase requires you consume 500 calories a day. There are prohibitions on foods with starches and sugars.

The HCG diet phase is a central part of taking HCG supplement. Also known as the stabilization phase or Phase 2, you will go from a high fat diet immediately to the HCG diet phase where calories will be reduced to around 500 a day.

Taking hormone through the mouth and through the injection is unalike. The drops are more effective when mixed with extra ingredients since the bodys absorption is different for each person. Given some mixture of natural ingredients, these will be absorbed efficiently and much faster into the bloodstream.

Accordingly, HCG weight loss, if possible, should be complemented withvitamin B12. The reason for this is due to the fact that several people may experience rapid weight gain once the diet is completed. Vitamin B-12 is needed in each product to ensure this does not happen since this vitamin is essential to assist the body burn calories.

If you are looking to buy HCG diet drops, the 3 most reliable companies are available at the top of this page. Eachcompany has issued a large research costs to produce products that provide maximum results. You can rest assured that the manufacturers we mentioned on this website are companies which have a solid legality.
