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. 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 "###s" 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.

    While the company may be a sham or fraudulent (I have seen no proof of that one way or another), the hcg diet isn't. The writer of the "complaint" doesn't offer any real complaint with the company other than it's making money and promoting the hcg diet. THE DIET WORKS. Few people could continue a 500 calories/day starvation diet for 3-6 weeks. The hcg diet isn't a starvation diet. The only way I would agree with this complaint is if it is found that the company isn't selling quality homeopathic hcg.
