Jersey Shores Jenni Farley and, according to reports, Britney Spears has taken the baby food fad to another level – eat like a mommy-to-be!
How it works:
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is the hormone found in pregnant women that allows them to eat for two and burn those calories faster. So you inject it into your system, come down to consuming 500 calories a day, and watch it use your jiggly love-handles in a jiffy.
But there is no cheating the human body. You may trick it for a short span of time, but somewhere after elongated use, the hormone will catch up and your body will get too used to it for it to have any effect whatsoever. But the crux of it is that though the diet may not be fatal, consuming such few calories a day can lead to some serious health problems.
