Is HCG drops for weight loss a reality or a scam? I am 177 lbs which is obese for my height of 5.1′. I went to my doctor and consulted about taking hcg shots. He suggested it is better to go for good old exercise than getting expensive shots. However, I am desperate since my cousin’s wedding is within couple of months. HCG drops seems like a good hope for me. So what I’m asking you is to give me good brands that can be used for quick weight loss?
