Among all the trades in the world, selling of medicines has an important position. Since they are life-saving and they are needed every day, medicines don’t see a downfall. There are medicines for almost every kind of disease in the world. But, it is important for a person to know if a particular medicine is genuine or not.

There is a commonly accepted belief that if a man needs to be physically fit; he needs to have his body weight under control. There are so many medical articles which suggest you some methods to reduce your weight. The HCG diet as prescribed by Dr.Simeon has been many suggested and prescribed by many companies for the people who want to lose weight. So, what is HCG? The abbreviation HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin. It is a hormone produced by a woman when she is pregnant. This hormone is produced by non-pregnant woman and men also, in some conditions. This hormone is artificially applied in a human body to make the person lose weight. Moreover, the HCG diet puts forth a strict diet to be followed by the person who is injected. The hormone is given to the person in many forms like injection, pills, sprays, drops etc. But the FDA does not approve of such diet methods which promise to reduce as much as one pound of weight per day. It is normal to lose weight for a person who follows a strict diet like that of HCG diet.

HCG diet does not allow the person to take more than 500 per day. Doctors say that a normal person needs 1000 – 1500 calories a day. So, FDA says that if a person loses his weight dramatically by following HCG diet, it is not because of the hormone but because of the diet plan. The diet allows the person only two meals a day, a lunch and a dinner. And each one of his meals should not have more than one vegetable, one fruit, one protein and one bread. Moreover the diet doesn’t allow the person to do physical exercise which is also considered as not a good one.

The diet allows you to consume any amount of water, tea and coffee. HCG diets are used only for obese people. Even that is done under the supervision of a medical practitioner.
