MIAMI, Feb. 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The internet has opened a plethora of opportunity for weight loss companies, exposing people to scams that can place them in precarious situations. While Diet Doc's intent is not to discourage the purchase of online diet products, it is intended to encourage consumers to be thoughtful when purchasing products, warning them to research the company, their reputation and manufacturing methods to avoid falling prey to products that could lead to harmful health consequences.
hCG diet drops have gained much internet attention recently. And, while pure, prescription strength hCG can, in fact, be a catalyst for fast weight loss, Diet Doc cautions consumers to be diligent when tempted to buy hCG diet drops for the following reasons:
- Obtaining hCG without a valid doctor prescription is illegal and dangerous. Dieters should consult their physician prior to beginning any diet, and even more so when their diet plan incorporates prescription diet products;
- hCG diet drops are almost always homeopathic. Homeopathic drugs are diluted and are NEVER prescription strength. This means that pure hCG that is sold without a prescription is either not truly prescription strength or it has been obtained illegally and is being sold illegally;
- While many weight loss companies promote hCG diet drops, combined with a 500-calorie per day intake, there is no evidence that hCG diet plans require the consumption of so few calories;
- Although many online sites claim that those who buy hCG diet drops will lose 2 pounds or more per day without diet or exercise, this claim is totally untrue.
- Many hCG diet drop websites falsely promote hCG as a permanent metabolism reset. Any method of weight loss, whether it be diet, exercise or surgery, requires strategies to maintain long term weight management.
While Diet Doc is not discrediting legal hCG weight loss clinics, they are warning consumers to practice due diligence when choosing their weight loss program and to be aware that the vast majority of internet information that tempts consumers to buy hCG diet drops is designed to confuse and profit from an unknowing public.
Diet Doc has earned its reputation by providing patients with diet products that are manufactured in fully licensed, FDA approved, U.S. based pharmacies that are obtainable by prescription only after a satisfactory online doctor consultation.
Diet Doc tailors medically supervised diet plans that are compatible with the personal, nutritional, and medical needs of each patient. The company urges those who are tempted to buy hCG diet drops to call today to speak with the experts and to schedule a free consultation.
