I am 50 pounds overweight and have been trying to lose it for a long time now. I have been exercising and reducing my calorie intake, but it really isn't helping that much. I have only lost about 5lbs in the last 4 months. I have been looking into b12/lipotropic, lipoden, and HCG injections. I was wondering if anyone knows which is most effective or safest?
No, you can not spot reduce. Fat is stored all over the body and the body will use it from all over the body. I have lost 55 pounds and it has come off all over in a pretty even fashion. Yes, I have more fat on my belly but I did to start with. I have 20 pounds to go to reach goal and hope it won't be such a concern as I reach my goal weight.
If you are a woman, careful with the HCG it can have masculanizing effects (turns into testosterone). All good if you want that but hair on my chin is not my cup of tea. I've had great results with a combination of B12/lipo & a supplement by the name of Miracle Burn. The shots alone don't help your appetite - as a matter of fact if you are deficient to begin with you can start to feel really good and will have a "healthy appetite". The MB contains Hoodia among other herbs that are great for weight loss. I have lost 28 lbs in 4 months - of course exercising & watching my diet. I have been going to a naturopathic clinic for the injections and weight loss support.
I my doctor about the HCG injections & she said she does not do it - too risky.
