hCG Diet Scam!

Lately, I’ve been seeing and hearing more and more coverage about the hCG diet.  Some people are claiming it’s a weight loss miracle and others have been claiming it’s one of the biggest scams happening in the weight loss industry.

I recently had the opportunity to talk with one of the leading scientists in the fitness industry, Will Brink, about the hCG Diet.  Will and I both agree that this is without a doubt, one of the biggest scams ever.

NOT bodyfat which is what you want to lose.

For additional information on the hCG diet, I recommend you read these articles in the New York Times and
