4out of 5

Pros: Easy to Transport, Lightweight, Durable, Large Capacity, Good Zippers

Cons: Color

Best Uses: Home visits as a doctor

I am a Family physician that sees patients at home when requested. This bag allows me to carry everything I need to care for my patients.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the color was camo green. The web photo looks like beige/brown. I like the green better.

HCG diet!

Here's the latest on the HCG diet from a natural medicine database:

The HCG diet is now becoming a popular diet promoted for quick and easy weight loss. It combines a very low calorie diet of 500-800 calories daily with injections of the prescription drug human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is often referred to as the "pregnancy hormone" because it is the hormone measured in home pregnancy tests. Proponents suggest that HCG decreases hunger, enhances weight loss, and shifts body fat from thighs and buttocks to other parts of the body. But clinical research shows that HCG does NOT improve weight loss or redistribute fat. Explain to patients that consuming a very low-calorie diet can cause short-term weight loss, but it is not a sustainable long-term weight solution.

Doesn't sound like a good idea.
The only true way to lose weight is through behavior modification.
