This morning sees me down some more. I am at 294.6. I am 2.1 pounds away from a 10% loss. Yea! The FDA has banned HCG for weight loss here in the states, and has managed to reach it's long (and slimy) arm across the waters to India, which has also banned selling HCG. Why? Glad you asked. The FDA is gettting ready to approve a new "miracle" weight loss pill (Phen Fen anyone?), you can lose up to 10% of your body weight in one year. One whole year! Whoopie, what a deal! As I have said before, I am only a couple pounds from a 10% loss, and that's in 3 weeks.
How am I feeling? Elated! This has been the best diet ever! On the one hand, you learn, in a most dramatic way, that veggies are good for weight loss! Who knew?! And that you can eat a TON of them! You also learn how important protein is. Protein (from animal sources), is vital to building up your cells, and keeping fit. You also learn that grains are not necessary. Considering we live in a grains based society, this is radical news. Check the ingrediants of anything boxed or processed, you will find corn (yes, corn is a grain, not a veggie). It may be listed as high fructose corn syrup, but it's there.
Oh, my mind is just jumping around all over the place. Sorry, I am just not very focused today. Back to the FDA. Since the FDA is going to approve it's pill (o'death), it's has to stop everyone from looking at something that works. Hence, the ban on HCG for weight loss. HCG is legal for treating other conditions, such as low testosterone in men.
So, those who believe the lies that HCG has no weight loss value will turn to the new pill. But, if the pill is so great, and HCG doesn't work, why ban it for those who use it? Because, in light of Phen Fen, who's going to trust what the FDA approves? It's all about the money, honey. The Pharma has paid the FDA big money to push their product.
If you ever wondered if evil had a name, I am here to tell you, it has many names, and one of them is FDA.
