Myth #1: A 500 calories a day is detrimental to your health.


The reality is that such a low calorie diet can indeed potentially cause some problems if not prescribed and monitored appropriately. Serious electrolyte disturbances can occur when other medical conditions are present or certain medications are ingested. But this is an extremely rare problem if you do the diet through a trained HCG True Diet physician.

Trained physicians should monitor you on the diet for these potential electrolyte disturbances that may occur. Although rare, these problems can cause some very serious side effects, especially if associated with cardiac arrhythmias that could be fatal for certain individuals if present. A trained physician should be knowledgeable about potential side effects of this diet program and other medications that you take.
