There's a new celebrity diet that is making its way around Tinsel Town and this one is probably one of the most unhealthy diets I have read about in a very long time.
Both Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi of Jersey Shore are rumored to be on the HCG Hormone Diet. The unconventional diet tricks the body into thinking it is pregnant and allows dieters to lose one pound a day. The hormones also act has appetite suppressants and the meal plan should not surpass 500 calories a day.
Dr. Erica Schwartz, a hormone expert from the Age Management Institute says the HCG Diet is safe under a doctor's care, but most remain skeptical.
