As with most situations, you should listen to your mother. The hCG Diet is dangerous, click that link to learn more. Last week we spoke to someone who is following the protocol and talks about how you should always be under a doctor's care for hCG if you choose to do it.

Five hundred calories/day is hardly enough to support proper bodily functions, it is not a healthy nor sustainable amount to be consuming. Keep a food journal, analyze how many calories/day you're currently eating, and cut 500 calories from that. The defecit, along with eating properly and exercise, will result in weight loss.
