I'm hearing of women losing weight with the HCG injections, and I decided to look into it. While Dr. Sheri Emma, Creator of the Dr. Emma's HCG Protocol claims that this 'crash' diet allows you to loose weight while maintaining muscle, other researcher have shown the HCG injections to be no more beneficial than saline-water/placebo injections for weight loss. The HCG diet plan usually involves severe calorie restriction (500-1500 cal/day), and it's this significant caloric reduction that's likely responsible for the weight loss, rather than the HCG injections themselves. Dr. Emma quotes, "Remember, HCG does not make you loose weight - the diet makes you loose weight!"
Keep in mind, the safest and most healthy way to loose weight is still by moderate calorie restriction & Exercise! :)
