Now I like horses as well as anyone, I guess. Never had the chance to ride them much. But they are wonderful beasts.
Having said that, I’m not a fan of mare urine. Not really been my thing. Why do I mention that? Because there is this whole, expensive diet built on mare urine. And not just any mare urine…pregnant mare urine.
The diet is called HCG. And people lose a lot of weight on it. At least that’s what they say. When I checked out the claims, it seemed it was true…people do lose a lot of weight.
So, it was time to take a closer look. I found out their secret. Pregnant mare urine. Now the liquid horse horse stuff (it seems weird to keep talking about urine) really doesn’t make you lose weight…at least not all by itself. It seems they put you on a 500 calorie a day diet. That’s where the urine comes in. Whether in pill, drink, or shot form, its supposed to keep the hunger away.
HCG, then teams up with what can only be described as a VERY LOW CALORIE diet. At 500 calories per day, it is HALF what Weight Watchers feeds you. (And I thought that was a low calorie diet.) Basically, without the horsey stuff you’d really get hungry.
Only 500 calorie? That’s 1/4 what people normally eat. No wonder you lose a lot of weight.
But, here’s the thing, HCG is also used to cause ovulation and to treat infertility in women, and to increase sperm count in men. Some women using this medicine have developed a condition called ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome (OHSS), especially after the first treatment cycle. (I looked it up.) OHSS can be a life-threatening condition. It can cause severe pelvic pain, swelling of the hands or legs, stomach pain and swelling, shortness of breath, weight gain, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting, and urinating less than normal.
Woops. That just doesn’t seem right…ALL THAT RISK JUST TO LOSE WEIGHT?
Then, I checked in with several people who had lost a lot of weight on the HCG diet. Everyone I talked to GAINED ALL THEIR WEIGHT BACK, PLUS A LOT MORE. Now, maybe that doesn’t happen to everyone, but I could understand why. Here’s a short video that explains why DIETS REALLY CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN. Check it out. It’s only about 1-and-a-half-minute-long, but it made a lot of sense to me.
I’m not getting near HCG. I don’t need pregnant mare urine in my diet. And I certainly don’t want to RE-GAIN A LOT OF WEIGHT after any diet. That’s nonsensical.
I am ready for something else. An undiet. Aren’t you?
I’ve heard about the #CoreUnDiet, and where to get a FREE sample. I’m going to try it, and save my money. And keep mare urine out of my house.
Try it with me. Get a FREE #CoreUndiet sample here.
Meanwhile, stay away from pregnant mare urine. Pet the horses when you see them. Don’t consume their byproducts.
PS: Here’s a 1-and-a-half-minute-long video that explains how LOW CALORIE DIETS cause weight re-gain.
