From Britney Spears to JWOWW and Snooki of MTV’s Jersey Shore, the rich and famous are utilizing the controversial HCG Diet to get in shape fast. The HCG Diet promises quick weight loss of about one pound per day and total body reshaping in as short as one month.

“My girlfriend lost 40 lbs in six weeks on the plan. She tried everything and it worked for her. So I thought if it worked for her, it would work for me,” said JWOWW on the HCG Diet.

Rumors about Snooki on the HCG Diet surfaced when viewers were wondering how she lost weight and reshaped her body so quickly. She reportedly did the HCG Diet after being turned onto it by her co-star JWOWW.

What is this Secret HCG Diet?
The HCG Diet was created by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in Italy during the 1950s. In Dr. Simeons’ years of research, he found that when HCG, a hormone produced by pregnant women, was administered in small daily doses to patients along with his specific Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD), they lost an average of one pound per day of abnormal fat (i.e. double chin, gut, saddle bags, etc.). Then, when patients followed Dr. Simeons’ post-HCG Maintenance Phase, they found they did not gain any of their weight back.

Look Before You Leap When Considering the HCG Diet
Due to the soaring popularity of the HCG Diet, dozens of websites promoting HCG injections, HCG drops, and HCG pills are popping up on a regular basis. But buyer beware is the motto of HCG experts everywhere who advise extreme caution when buying from unknown websites as many of these sites have questionable products and practices.

“We’ve heard so many HCG company horror stories. From customers going through a week of feeling awful on the diet, only to find out that their ‘HCG drops’ weren’t real, or people losing only 1/3 of the weight they could’ve lost because they didn’t know the right foods to eat. It’s just so sad because most of these companies are only in it to make a quick buck, and it’s the customers who are paying the steep price for it,” says Tiffany Prinster, HCG Diet author and CEO of Do-It-Yourself HCG (DIY HCG,

Because of this, anyone wanting to try the HCG Diet needs to do their research to find a safe and trustworthy HCG Diet company from which to purchase their HCG Diet drops or HCG Diet pills (HCG injections cannot be sold online).

Prinster suggests three things to look out for when choosing where to purchase online:
1) The company’s contact information should be readily available.
2) Be wary of any company who does not follow Dr. Simeons’ original manuscript guidelines for food and personal care items. And,
3) Watch out for hidden fees or reoccurring monthly charges.
