There are a lot of knee-jerk reactions to this diet because so few people understand how this diet works.  The hormone you take, hCG, is a natural hormone found in the human body.  It is found in both men and women at very low levels.  When a women becomes pregnant it skyrockets naturally and helps the gonads develop in the fetus.  It also works on the hypothalamus to cause it to signal the fat cells to mobilize fat for the growing fetus.

It is used and approved for therapy in both men and women but not specifically for dieting.  When you take hGC for dieting your hypothalamus signals your fat cells to "open for business" thus when you go on a 500 cal diet your body turns to your fat cells to make up the deficit.  You are actually burning 2000 to 2500 calories a day it just that 1500 to 200o of those are from your body fat.  So when the diet is done correctly following all of the protocols, no it is not dangerous and no one has ever died from this diet.

PS. I have lost 50 pounds on this diet and believe me it is fast!!!
