Does anyone have experience with the hcg diet we're hearing more and more of?

My sister has jumped on the bandwagon and I'm a bit worried for her. She's desperate to lose 40 lbs and has kind of plateaued. After hearing her friend lose a lot on this diet she immediately went to a health centre offering it. I've tried to do research about it/educate myself so I'm not the nagging older sister but all the sites I go to seems to just want to sell me their supplements. I just scratch my head and wonder how eating 500 calories a day can be considered healthy and if people actually sustain this weight loss when they go off the diet.
Anyone here have experience with this diet or know people who have that can put my fears to rest?
