HCGis a natural hormone produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone. This hormone allows the body to metabolize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a "fail-
HCG is extremely safe. Women may experience very high levels during pregnancy with no adverse affects. Currently there are no known established clinical side effects to homeopathic remedies and medicines but as with any diet we recommend that you consult with a doctor before starting this diet and if you have any swelling, shortness of breath, dizziness or heavy redness consult a doctor or medical professional immediately.
The HCG hormone is naturally present in men. It is found in every human tissue, including males, pregnant women, and non-
HCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. For weight loss, a very low calorie diet of all the right foods is used to trigger HCG to help rid the body of fat.
It is true that normally when cutting back on calories and fat, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This happens because fat is really a life-
You can lose weight simply by eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier, as well as decrease bone density and muscle mass. By using HCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated; the low calorie diet is vital in preventing immediate refilling of emptied fat cells. You benefit by preferentially getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bone and muscle. With HCG you can lose the weight quickly and keep it off!
It is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days. This will pass and by the second week you will find your servings to be satisfying. Because HCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking lots of the green tea all day (we like the cold fruity sweet one sweetened with stevia) helps a ton as a natural appetite suppressant and your energy level. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.
HCG formulas do not interact with ANY medications, including birth control pills or Depo-
Because the amount of HCG is so small, there are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, HCG will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant. It is best to avoid starting the HCG diet if you are within 5-
If you are pregnant do not take HCG. If you become pregnant during the HCG diet, stop taking HCG and consult your OB-
Most people will lose between 25-
Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a plateau or leveling off of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-
NO!!!!!!!!!!!!! Never skip any of your meals. It's important to eat all of your 500 calories and especially your protein so that you lose fat and not muscle.
No exercise! Or if you must exercise, low key exercise only. You can do about 20 min. of walking a day and a few sit ups or push-
We recommend taking B12 every day. The sublingual B is the recommended B supplement because it is in liquid form and is absorbed right in your system. This will increase with energy and increase your metabolism. Also a good Multi Vitamin helps, make sure it is sugar free and has no fat soluble ingredients like fish oils or vitamin D. Potassium is also good especially if you experience leg cramps (which can be common while on this diet). Calcium/magnesium combo is also a good one to take if needed.
Some people may experience light headaches during the first week, this is because your body is releasing fat cells very rapidly and you will be going through a major detoxification. You may take an Aspirin or Tylenol as long as it's not sugar coated.
In the original HCG diet protocol by Dr. Simeons, it does not mention or account for alcohol. It has found that some HCG Users whom have been drinkers or even those that are borderline alcoholic, do surprisingly well on the HCG diet. If the simple instructions are followed correctly, the HCG diet will get them out of their drinking routine. These users have even said that they don't even feel the need to drink while on the HCG diet because HCG works with the hypothalamus gland which controls the emotional eating/ drinking part of the brain, along with other aspects.
The answer is yes. However try to avoid lotions, moisturizers or liquid make-
If the weight loss slows try the following: Increase water consumption (try to drink 1/2-

hCG Protocol Information Summary
Loading Phase – 2 Days – Gaining Weight (on purpose)
I know, it sounds weird. “Load” for 2 Days, taking in a higher fat and higher calorie diet than usual these two days.
During this time you are taking hCG and eating a specific 500 calorie diet from an approved foods list. For all the details on Phase 2 of hCG go here.
Transition off the hCG hormone: 72 hours.
Stop taking hCG while continuing the 500 calorie diet. It takes about 72 hours for the hormone to fully leave your system during which time you continue eating based on Phase 2 rules.
3 weeks – Stabilizing Your New Weight
The stabilization phase, where you will be eating a low carb diet to stabilize your new weight. This lasts for 3 weeks, where you are supposed to keep your weight within 2 lbs of your LDW (last dose weight – your weight on the scale the morning of your last dose of hCG). When it goes above this 2 lb window, you do what’s called a Steak Day. A steak day is simply not eating during the day but drinking lots of water, then having a large steak and tomato or apple for dinner. This is a correction method to bring the weight back down again.
Maintaining Your Weight
Phase 4 is essentially what your daily life, beyond losing weight, is all about. The idea is to gradually re-
