I can't in good conscience let this scam company continue to operate without at least letting people know what this B.S. company is up to. Let me start by telling you, I am a professional in the dietary industry. I know these people through a friend who knows Jaime well. They've been trying get rich quick schemes for years now, and they finally found one that works. They're "selling" HCG drops and claim excessive weight loss while using the product. Basically this is it - You buy their product and limit yourself to a 600 calorie intake a day and you will lose weight. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that ANYONE will have dramatic weight loss on a 600 calorie diet. They claim their HCG forces the body to use stored fat as opposed to getting nutrients from their food consumption. HELLO - when you are only consuming 600 calories a day your body goes into starvation mode which causes it to rely on stored body fat. [continued below]....
..... That's not a diet, that's STARVATION. This can lead to many complicated medical problems (see anorexia). Their "HCG" consists of nothing more than just tap water mixed with a little tiny bit of HCG. They operate this scam from their house and then charge their customers for access to their blog on their website. So basically you are paying for a bottle of tap water and then starving yourself, which results in weight loss and they just keep getting richer. They have bragged about how much money they are making from these "morons" on the internet and that Jaime's husband is some sort of internet whiz so he is able to beat out everyone else in marketing. Apparently, they've been making so much money from this scam they have bought a mansion and several new vehicles this past year with cash. Do you really want to sacrifice your health and give your heard earned money to support their lavish lifestyle? This is not only a good way to lose money (not weight), but you are putting your health at RISK too. While you think you are using some great weight loss program, these guys have been living it up on your hard earned money. My suggestion to anyone out there, is to talk with a Dietitian or your Physician. Do not let some bogus company with no medical credentials AT ALL, tell you what is good for you and what isn't. Remember this phrase people "if it's too good to be true, it probably is". It's easy to lose weight people, it's called good diet and exercise. That's it. There is no such thing as a miracle diet.

500 calories will NOT make all lose!

AUTHOR: Issy - (USA)

As someone who struggled with weight loss, I have excersized, did low cal, even liquid diet and yes I lost but for a HUGE effort such as 600 cals a day I lost about 1 pd per week. I tried HCG, I am and lost 55 pds in 3.5 months. I don't drink or smoke, I am active so this worked for me! People can't stick to 500-600 without this, with HCG I did NOT feel hungry and seeing results daily was the biggest motivator. There is a science to it, I spoke to my physician at length.

No Complaints Here.

AUTHOR: You''re Full Of Crap! - (United States of America)

The only complaint I have about YourHcg is that they werent around sooner! If they had been and I had purchased their product years earlier, I could have been thinner earlier. I have never and I mean never had any luck with any fad diet. This hcg is the only way I have ever had any significant weight loss without killing myself working out or jogging 20 miles a day or starving myself to death!

So, whatever your complaint, whatever your beef, it's NONESENSE because the HCG diet has worked for 1000's of people and I am one of them. You sound jealous more than anything. If they landed on a goldmine, so be it! Good for them! The product works and they should profit from it. I do wish it were a little less expensive, but it is worth every drop.

If you stick to the 500 calorie a day diet you will lose weight and not feel hungry. I'm not one to put my personal business on blast, but when someone or a company is being lied about and slandered, then I feel it's my time to step up and defend what is right. Believe me, if this product didn't work, I'd be right here bad mouthing them all over the place. But the truth is the truth. It does work. I have purchased 3 rounds from yourhcg within the past 2 years and have never had a problem with it. If they've changed the formula or watered it down, then this must be something new that I'm not aware of. Quite frankly, whatever is in that stuff works and I for one couldnt care if it were horse dung. It melted the fat off me in record time and that is why I bought the product.

No complaints here.

Please get your facts straight

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

I am a consumer of the HCG product and not just a friend of a friend.  The so called facts you are listing are untrue in many ways which I will explain paragraph by paragraph.

1. This is not a "new diet". It has been around for over 50 years.

2. I have lost over 55 lbs by using the product, my sister has lost 40 lbs. and my husband has just begun and lost 18 so far and we are all continuing to lose on a daily basis. We feel great, have more energy and are excited to meet our goals.

3. It is not 600 calories, it is 500 plus the drops. Read the Dr.'s Book and this is verified.

4. If you only had 500 calories without the drops you would feel famished, this is not the case, I have experienced no hunger pains after the first week, and feel very satisfied with 500 calories.  Not only that I am excited to get up and look at the scale every morning.

5. I do not feel I am on a starvation diet; I feel healthier; eating fruits, vegetables, and protein and eliminating sugars and starches.

6. I am not trying to be anorexic, I am trying to obtain a healthy weight for my height and age.

7. The taste is definitely not water, if you tried it personally you would know this is definitely not water. Does not smell or taste like water.  Containers have addresses of production out of Colorado and Idaho and are shrinkwrapped professionally. 

8. Many home based businesses are very profitable, if you are not, maybe you should look into a product that helps people and works. Do not criticize hard working, home based businesses just because your pockets may be struggling or empty.

9. I know the Edmunds on a personal level as well as a business consumer, they have never bragged or even mentioned how profitable their business is.  They do not live in a "mansion" unless it is bigger than your home? (yes this is sarcasm!) They live in a nice home and drive average vehicles.  I know this for a fact, not from a third source.

10. What they do with their profits is no business of anyone's but their accountant and their personal choice.  I know personally they did not purchase the home with cash, and if they did, so what! It is their money, not yours!

11. If you were to purchase their product at a doctors office you would pay over 1000% more (600-800.00 for the injections).  So why aren't you complaining about the chiropractors and doctors who are prescribing this.  The Edmunds are keeping costs down for the regular consumer.

12. Finally, it is not easy to lose weight with good diet and exercise.  I have tried many diets and exercised with a trainer and have never lost any weight to speak of.  I am a proven case that this works if you follow the rules.  If you cheat it will not work. If you follow the protocol it works great! And by the way it takes willpower to stay on this diet, drink enough water and break old habits. "So it is not too good to be true" it is hard work.

Please get your facts straight before tearing down good, hardworking people.  I will continue with this program and be forever grateful that I feel healthy, look great and will be around to watch my children and grandchildren grow up. I will recommend this product to anyone who wants to live healthier and change their eating habits.

You can always buy the book if you want to become more educated on the product, and just so you know they don't make any money off the book, so rest assured.

The truth about HCG

AUTHOR: Jaime Edmund - (United States of America)

It is important to understand all the facts about HCG and how it works before assuming that the diet is unhealthy.  The best way to get educated on the facts of the diet is by reading the original diet protocol, as written by Dr. Simeons himself.  You can view it at www.yourhcg.com/Poundsandinches.pdf.  Note that Dr. Simeons is in no way related to or has any interest in Your HCG.  His original diet protocol was written 50 years ago, and has helped millions of people successfully lose weight and cure health problems using the HCG diet protocol.

A great way to hear personal stories from REAL customers is by visiting our facebook page, www.facebook.com/yourhcg.  Here, you can hear from literally thousands of people how they have lost weight successfully with YourHCG.com.  Many of these people have had health problems cured as a result of their weight loss with HCG. 

Obviously, if Your HCG was selling a bottle of water, all of our customers would have major negative health implications.  Simply eating 500 calories per day, without HCG would be very detrimental to your health.  It is important to understand how HCG works in your body and why you only need to consume 500 calories per day.  Again, this is all explained in Dr. Simeons Pounds and Inches. 

We feel, as a company, that integrity is very important.  There are many competitors and non-believers of HCG.  We respect their opinion, and welcome any questions or arguments you may have.  It is unfair, however, that someone can post inaccurate information on a site such as Ripoff Report without any substantial evidence to back up their claims.
