Stop the B12. Continue the diet. Add exercise. Still lose weight. Spend money saved on new wardrobe.

If you do not have a deficiency in B12 getting B12 shots will do NOTHING for you. Zip, zilch, nada. The effect you are feeling is purely placebo.

Default It really is a waste.

Vitamin B12 is something they usually give you if you are deficient or have extreme problems with you metabolism. These are normally diagnosed by your Doc, and they hardly ever give you a shot, normally they put you on a diet plan so that you can do the work on you own. Honestly, there are a lot of foods out there that can supply you with the amount of B12 you need to keep a healthy diet and it cost way less than a shot. My mom paid 150 for a shot. She could've gotten the same results from some very nutritious breakfast cereals like Post Great Grains or by eating eggs or fish.

Smile B12 shots and weight loss

"I had gotten a shot that has vitamin b12 and b-complex, b6 and lipotropic. I lost 50 pounds in 4 months on this, and says it helped get my appetite under control, and I have kept it off even after I stopped getting the shots”

It is possible that the reason you lost so much weight is that some clinics that give out B12 shots dont tell patients that they actually put in HCG the pregnancy hormone that is the new fad used in weight loss. It is a very controversial thing now and many are complaining that they dont know it is in there B12 injections. the fact that it is helping your hair and nails grow means it probably also has some B complex - including biotin.

HCG does not cause weight loss.

B12 does not cause weight loss.

They are both great money makers for the charlatans that sell them to people who want to lose weight, though.

It's not the b12 or the HCG...it's the 500 calorie a day diet you follow that makes your drop the weight.

B12 shots are only good for people who are deficient in vitamin B12, which most people are NOT.
