HCG pills VS shots

I know this is probably already posted on here somewhere, but I need to know what the difference is between HCG shots and pills.  Do they make pills that have the same "cocktail" as the shots ? I'm thinking about going to Dr. G or Sara Brown in Huntersville (I've read she takes insurance)but if I could do this cheaper on my own by buying pills, ofcourse I'd rather do that. Also, I've been taking Lipovox for a week now and I do seem to get fuller quicker (Lean Cuisine) I usually have to eat 2 of these to know I've eaten ! and we had birthday cake at work last week and I did pretty well staying away from it. :) Anyone have any experience with the Lipovox ?

I've been told by doctors that the oral HCG isn't as effective as the shot.  I get the shots in Asheville, NC and have been satisfied with the results and have had no side effects.  Good luck!! I've lost 40 pounds (while dieting also -- not just the shots) and feel great. Its wonderful to be able to go buy clothes again without feeling like crying!

I didn't get weight loss with just the shot.  The doctor said the hcg just makes the fat easier to lose -- you still have to take in fewer calories than you burn to lose weight.  I didn't use diet pills but, at least as I have always understood it, the pills don't affect your weight at all, they just make you less hungry so you eat less.

Have you guys noticed a weight loss with just the shots ?  I'm not really too keen on taking the Phent, I've heard of it raising BP and heart rate, neither of which I care to mess with.  A friend of mine works with a girl that has lost from a sz 14 to a 4 with no exercise, just the pills and shots.  But the Phent just curbs your appetite right, it does't really make the fat go away ??  Is that right ?

I lost 42 pounds. It took me about 4 and 1/2 months to lose it and so far I've kept it off. I got the injections along with a diet program to follow which basically is just eating healthy and watching calories. I've continued to do that and had no problem keeping it off and actually just lost another 2 pounds. I'm not taking the shots anymore.

I want to take HCG to help me with my weight loss but I actually want to try it the pill version first. Does anyone know where to buy the pill version from? Or can anyone direct me to a website?

I have been on the pill version of the HCG.  I lost so far 13 Lbs. in 12 days.  It seems they work just as well as the shots.  I researched it a lot before starting, and the pills seem to be a new thing that was just started.  You do not actually swallow them but rather let them dissolve on your tongue for about 30 seconds.  The idea is to simply get 125 IU of HCG into your system.  The methods of administering it range from injecting, to drops to pills and even ointment that you put on your skin.  The easiest for me was the pill form.

I would not recommend HCG in pill or any other form other than injection, and even then you have to get that from a reliable source. I did mine through yourfatlosscoach.com, they have coaching centers throughout the country and I personally know the founders and know that they have a reliable doctor and pharmacy that supplies the HCG, so I trust them, and they coach you throughout the process,not just "heres the meds, have a nice day". If you do not stick to the protocol to the T, you can very well mess up the results and all your hard work.

“Homeopathy” is a scam unto itself: homeopathic “medicines” are nothing more than expensive water (or sugar/fillers, in the case of capsules/tablets).

Will is calling it a scam as there’s little evidence that HCG is any better than a placebo for weight loss. Like Dumbo’s Magic Feather, placebos “work” because people believe they possess a power that they do not actually have. In your case, this is especially true, since you took no active HCG whatsoever.

FYI: “homeopathic” does not mean “natural” or whatever other fuzzy construction many people place on it. “Homeopathic” means that the active principal has been diluted to the point where no active compound can be detected. See this vid by none other than James Randi for a more vivid explanation: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2785985155605802136#

What most people do not understand, is that very low calorie diets (VLCDs) have an appetite-suppressing effect in and of themselves. This has been documented by research obtained from medically-supervised plans, such as the RFO Program at UCLA ( http://rfoweightloss.med.ucla.edu/body.cfm?id=32 ). And that same research demonstrates rates of weight loss that are comparable to those claimed by HCG advocates.
NO FORM WORKS FOR ANY REASON OTHER THEN INJECT,100% FACT
