Even though you are eating 500 calories your body is still receiving 2,000-4,000 calories per day from the break down of your abnormal fat stores. This is the reason dieters lose 1-2 pounds per day while on the HCG diet. With the proper vitamin supplementation and blood tests, the HCG diet is safe.
