HCG & Cholesterol.  I did notice my cholesterol almost doubled.

1992 while pregnant it went from a normal 117 to 220s.  It returned to 110s after the birth.

2011.  I gave blood after being on the hcg diet for a week and my normal 130s cholesterol was 204.  I expect it to return to normal.  Will donate blood again to keep it monitored.

I tried the HCG diet after seeing a neighbor lose 62 pounds over a 17 weeks period. 

The great motivator not to cheat is seeing the scale drop almost every day.

 I consistently lost .6-1.0 pounds/day over 35 days. 17 lbs total.

 I did not stick to the 500 calorie diet because I thought it would drive me nuts.  You can see diets varying from 500 a day, 800-900, even 1200 a day with satisfying results.
