The HCG diet was created by a British endocrinologist named A.T.W. Simmeons and it is a combination of severely reducing calories, including specific foods in your food plan, and receiving HCG injections. HCG is a hormone found in women who are pregnant and its purpose is to make sure the fetus receives enough calories. When injected into a non-pregnant person, it tricks the body into thinking its fat stores need to be used because the body is being fed only minimal calories. As the fat stores are released, nutrients enter the bloodstream and the person does not feel hungry. HCG is also used in fertility treatments and has been used since the 1970s to treat obesity. It is safe for both men and women.

This diet is sweeping San Miguel. Your best friend now is a pregnant woman in San Miguel however given the age of expats in San Miguel, the chances of finding a woman who could get pregnant is rather slim but somehow it is happening.

Santa's Helper Gets Little

I have a fascination with weight challenged women in my blog and when I heard of this new diet I realized that soon my pool of pictures will be reduced to skinny rug wearing, straw hatted women and that is simply not that funny.

Again the blog is going to wind down again all due to this Diet Craze.

Oh well I will just have to wait next year for the Yo Yo Effect
