I originally heard about the HCG hormone for weight lose. I just wanted to drop about 20 pounds and have friends who have used it from Great Earth Vitamins, La Jolla (which by the way had the best price in town). So after talking to Billy, the owner, for about 25 minutes, we went over the advantages of HCG and how quickly it works; however, Billy threw into the mix a product that was mentioned by Dr Oz on his show, called African Mango. To make a long story short, after our 25 plus min. talk, I decided to go with African Mango. Though it is a slower weight-loss program, I decided to go with this over the HCG only because of my busy lifestyle and dealing with personal family issues. I decided to take the easier of the two, which is African Mango. If my life wasn't so pressured at this point, I would have bought the HCG, but I opted for the slower and easier to take African Mango. I will let all know how it is working in the next six weeks. If it weren't for Billy and his knowledge, I'd be going in circles. Thanks you, Billy. I'm on the African Mango and if I life slows down a bit and I still need weight loss, I'll try the HCG. Thank you, Billy, for all the time you spent with me. I truly felt special and easily got all the service I needed and more. ""I'll be back!""
