Coconut Oil on the HCG Diet

People think of Kevin Trudeau as a scam artists or opportunist and write him off.  Some think of him more as a provider of helpful information.  But however you feel about or whatever you think about him the information in his books are based on research.  He just publicizes and hypes the information and provides it to you.  He gets attention and causes you to think about the subject .  Would you know about the hCG protocol without him?  Would you know the benefits of Organic Coconut Oil if not for Kevin Trudeau?

While I have a background in nursing and nutrition, I also personally lost 88 lbs with the HCG Diet in 2002, and I kept it off for over 10 years. I am currently on a mission to lose 45 lbs of baby weight with HCG from Nu Image and Diet Doc. This diet changed my life, leading me to start the first Hcg Diet site: 15+ years later, 100 million visits, over a million pages, & countless lives changed… HDI has become the true highlight of my journey.
