I've heard that hCG increases testosterone, which is a fat burner
hormone. Should work to drop weight although the docs think not. What
you need to watch out for is prolonged use can cause your system to stop
or decrease its production of testosterone because it no longer sees the
need to produce it with you pumping it in. So when you run out, you
could get shrunken testes. Try weight lifting instead if you can, to
encourage hypothalamus and the pituitary to produce testosterone. That
way you get your exercise too. Sticking oneself with a needle of
anything turns me off, so I am bias. The stuff will increase your sperm
count while you are taking it - as you know, but its not meant for
prolonged use. Nope, haven't tried it - haven't tried cocaine either and
thats a great weight reducer.
