hey there. I started on HCG1234 drops on June 20th. This is day 17 for me and I've lost 19 lbs and I haven't stayed strict. I drink diet soda, sugar free koolaid, take in 800-1000 calories a day, and have included rice w/some meals. I was in the same boat as you regarding what drops to get, honestly I just took a chance with these since I don't know anyone that's used them. They seem to be working for me, I hope you have similar results.
