HCG Diet Opinions Needed!!!

HELP!!!

The 'lil woman is adamant about trying the HCG diet. She was with a couple of her friends over the weekend and two of them swore up and down to her that it works. Thus, she's convinced she HAS to try it.

For those who aren't aware of what this, you can Google it and find a ton of information, but here's a little bit of what she told me in a nutshell:

1. She would pay to see a weight loss specialist doctor who would then prescribe her HCG drops or perhaps an injectable which she would then purchase from the doctors own personal stash.

2. Her diet would consist of about 500 calories per day of only foods that contains zero fat.

Anyway, I have my opinion on this issue, but she won't listen to me. So, let's hear YOUR opinions!!!

Thanks in advance.......

The HCG doesn't matter if your only eating 500 calories

Tell her this:
as soon as the diet is over, you will gain 2x as much weight , your period will be twice as long and heavier AND she will develop facial hair.... which is all true

That's pretty much the first thing I told her.
Let's see if anyone can figure out the next thing I told her......

To just skip the homeopathic HCG drop bullshit and eat a more reasonable diet?

This diet is a nightmare. Have her research metabolic adaptation and diet rebound. Yeah she'll lose weight, she'll also gain it right back as soon as she stops because her metabolism will be so slow from putting her body through a period of literal starvation.

Sorry guys but I have to laugh. You are all coming up with solid reasons why she's wrong. Let me just tell you this... she isn't going to do shit for research because she's already going to her girlfriends for advice. It won't matter if the Surgeon General himself calls her and says her friends are wrong. I remember a friend pulling his hair out because his wife insisted he, a CPA, was incorrect and wanted to take deductions her girlfriends told her were secret deductions.

Here's what you do... Tell her you think she's totally wrong, but you'll support her because you love her and want her to be happy. Take cover for the first two days when she's starving and doing shitty little things to punish you for this stupid diet, but pretending she's fine and that she is glad she made the right decision.

Don't say a word, or make "that face", when she gives herself a "treat" for doing so good on the diet the past 72 hours. Then by the weekend don't say "I told you" when she trashes the "stupid diet" (her words) and tells you why it wasn't her fault the damn thing didn't work, but that your way of doing it is just as stupid.

Sorry, but that's women. All you can do is be happy that when they gain weight their boobs get bigger.

Then in a month or two, ask her if she wants to go to the gym with you and jump on the treadmill while you workout. Little steps.

If my wife tracked her diet honestly she would find it to be 70% carbs, 25% fat and 5% protein. She is definitely carb sensitive. I gave up trying to reason with her decades ago. We use to both diet together and she use to train pretty hard. She looked great until about 40. Then the wheels came off when her estrogen crashed.
