HCG for Weight Loss


What is HCG?

HCG is hormone that helps the body to regulate metabolic process.  When introduced into the body in conjunctions with low calorie diet as a part of medically supervised HCG diet plan, HCG can stimulate the metabolism to burn fat stores for energy to make up for the low caloric intake as a part of a HCG diet plan.  Even while taking in so few calories per day, clients participating in an HCG diet plan feel little or none of the adverse side effects of hunger or fatigue as their bodies are metabolizing fat to provide the energy needed to function normally.

Why consider HCG Weight Loss?

HCG diet plan offers quick and safe way to lose the stubborn outer layer of fat that frequently is the hardest to lose.

  • Controlled estrogen levels in women

  • Stunning weight loss as much as one pound per day

HCG hormones have been safely used in both men and women, burning fat stores to preserve muscle integrity and every level, preventing the negative side effects of hunger.  This is what sets the HCG diet plan apart form other diets, the HCG hormones allows the body to obtain the sustenance required to maintain normal daily function and prevent muscle loss by burning fat stores as source of energy and protein.  For this reason, most patients that lose weight using and HCG diet plan are able to keep the weight off. They are losing fat, not muscle, and throughout the process developing healthier eating habits and rejuvenate metabolism.

Is HCG safe?

Yes, it is very safe.  The amount of HCG used in weight loss programs is small compared to what is naturally released in pregnancy.  The only exceptions involve patients with hormone related cancer, an allergy to HCG, or extremely early puberty.

How much weight will I lose?

The average weight loss is 10-25 pounds in three weeks.  But the closer you are to your body’s ideal weight, the slower you will lose weight.  The slowest loser usually loses about ½ a pound a day.

Will the low calorie diet cause my metabolism to slow down?

Not at all.  The normal response to low calorie diet is to store fat and slow the metabolism to ensure survival.  When HCG is used in conjunction with low calorie diet, the body’s excess fat reserves are burned as energy to support it’s needs.  The body figures it’s getting the nourishment it needs, therefore you are not as hungry.

If I eat a very low calorie diet without HCG, will I lose the same amount of weight?

No, Without it, your body goes into starvation mode and it tries to store fat.  Your metabolism slows down. It’s almost like a bear going into hibernation for the winter.

Will I get hungry on this diet?

Each of us is different.  Some people get hungry and some don’t. Hunger is the body’s way of telling you “feed me!” HCG stimulates your body to burn fat as energy, so your body’s energy needs are being met.  This will help reduce hunger in most people, because the body has plenty of energy use.

Will I be depleted of vitamins and nutrients?

Not at all.  First, this diet is short.  Second, every time you lose a pound of fat.  Which will happen most daily only the actual fat is burned.  All the vitamins, proteins and minerals are fed back into the body.  

Will HCG interfere with medication I am taking?

HCG does not interfere with any medications, including birth control .  There will be no side effects.

Will my menstrual cycle change while I am taking HCG?

Patients should not experience any chances in their menstrual cycle because the amount of HCG being used is very small.

Can Men use the HCG weight loss program?

HCG will not make you more feminine or women more masculine.  HCG actions are identical in men and women. Men can safely use the program as long as they do not have a hormone dependent cancer such as prostate cancer.
