I mentioned in earlier posts that the FDA hates the HcG diet. On December 6, the FDA and FTC sent warning letters to the main manufacturers of HCG. They claim that it is the “first step” in halting the sale of HcG products. T he letters warn the companies that they are violating federal law by selling drugs that have not been approved, and by making unsupported claims for the substances. There are no FDA-approved HCG drug products for weight loss.
I take issue with the FDA on this. First of all, they may not have approved it, but I can tell you that the claims for HcG are NOT unsupported as they say. It works! I am not one who can go without food. I have a huge appetite. However, when taking the HcG drops, I was not hungry. The diet had its ups and downs but I feel that the FDA has been unfairly targeting the US homeopathic producers of HcG. Now, they’ll just take their labs to another country and sell them on the web from there. The FDA has stated that the claims that HcG helps with weight loss are fraudulent. I’m here to tell you that they aren’t! Perhaps they should be cracking down on other manufacturers like Th-121 or those dreadful cookies! They make the same claims and aren’t effective.
So, what am I going to do now? I’m going to go get a prescription for HcG and do the diet anyway! A Boston area pharmacist has created a prescription strength HcG nasal spray along with a supplement plan. I plan on testing it out and I’ll write more next month.
