A Friend in the HCG for weight loss game?


Posted on September 24th, 2009 by Matt Schoeneberger

Jeff saw an add for Medshape Weight Loss Clinic, LLC in Clipper Magazine recently.  He ripped it out because it caught his attention.
“Beyond Conspiracy – The Truth About hCG Weight Loss Programs”

Wow!  When Jeff and I first looked at this we were happy that someone else was really getting to the bottom of this whole HCG kick that seems to be happening around here. It even says, in smaller print:

“Don’t let Myth, Conspiracy, & Misinformation sabatoge your weight loss efforts”

Cool!

So we go their website, medshapeweightloss.com.  It says lose up to 30 pounds in 30 days in large print (the add said 45 days, they must have gotten even better since then.  It also says lose up to 20 pounds in 30 days in smaller print below – maybe they just can’t make up their mind?).

It also becomes very clear that they are actually using HCG. I guess the “conspiracy” they mention is science that actually proves whether or not something works.  In this case, science has proven time and again that HCG is ineffective for weight loss.

They have a Medical Director and a Staff Physician, both have Dr. in front of their name. It’s amazing to me that doctors could peddle something like this.  Something that decades of scientific research has shown to be ineffective. Really? Have some integrity.  There are plenty of weight loss methods with large amounts of research. Sell one of those to people.

If this is the first time you’ve read about HCG, please see our Special Report, HCG & Weight Loss: Enough Already!  You can find the link at the bottom of the page. The HCG myth is included in the Myths chapter of our weight loss book, S.P.E.E.D. – The Only Weight Loss Book Worth Reading.
