I'm getting 1000IU/week via subq injection. As far as the HCG diet goes, I'm on the fence with this one. I have two immediate family members who have done very well with it. Now I know that the massive caloric restriction is the most likely reason for the weight loss, but the piece that they say really matters with HCG is the appetite control. Without that piece I know for sure that neither one of them would be able to tolerate such a low caloric intake.
