One does not only lose lbs with the HCG but can virtually melt away inches as well. In December I took my daugther to shop at her favorite store, Forever 21. Oh my! I saw this very trendy red coat. I instantly fell in love with the coat. Much to my dismay, the coat did not fit me well. I could barely fasten the buttons, but I took a leap of faith and purchased the coat . I thought, if after my diet the coat does not fit , I can always give it to my daughter. Well, after 35 days on the HCG, I tried on my trendy red coat. drum roll please!
