A natural hormone that helps with weight loss
What Is HCG?
HCG is produced by many tissues in both Women and men. It is a hormone that controls many metabolic functions and is used to treat many medical conditions. Research has been done on the anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer uses of HCG in Breast cancer and Melanoma. The reduced incidence of breast cancer among women with multiple pregnancies is thought to be due to the presence of high levels of HCG for long periods of time.
Dr Albert T.W. Simeons, a British Endocrinologist, originally came up with the HCG Diet. While he was studying pregnant women in India who were on a Calorie-deficient diet, he noticed that they lost fat rather than lean muscle tissue. He hypothesized that the HCG is programming the Hypothalamus to mobilize abnormal, excessive fat deposits to protect the developing fetus during a calorie deficient state. He also noted the same phenomenon (Losing fat rather than lean muscle) among obese kids with Frolich’s syndrome (Pituitary disorder) while being treated with low dose HCG.

Common Questions Asked About HCG Treatment
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a natural hormone produced by our bodies. In addition to being the Pregnancy hormone, it has many functions. HCG allows the body to burn Fat as the primary source of energy.

If you experience any side effects including but not limited to Rash, Chest pain, Shortness of breath, Dizziness, please seek medical attention immediately.
During the HCG diet, the body is primed to burn fat as the primary energy source. Fat gets broken down into Ketone bodies which dilate the blood vessels of the brain thereby causing a Headache. This is usually seen in the first few days and then goes away. An excellent way of avoiding headaches is to drink at least 10 to 12 glasses of water a day. This will help flush the Ketone bodies and reduce the chances of getting a Headache. If the headache is intolerable, it is OK to take Motrin, Aspirin or Tylenol as long as they nsugar-coatedted.
Does HCG interfere with any Medications that I am taking especially (Diabetes medications, BP medications, Birth control pills, Nexplanon implant, Depo-Provera shot)?
HCG is a natural hormone produced by every tissue in the human body. It does not interfere with ANY medications. Since Fat is not allowed during the Diet, we recommend that for the duration of the Diet, the patient stop taking Vitamin D3 (Vitamin D3 has to be taken with fat)
The amount of weight loss depends on several factors, including your initial weight. On an average, most Women lose about 0.5 to 0.75 pounds a day, and most Men will lose about 0.75 to 1 pound a day. Most people whose initial weight is higher, tend to lose more weight. Average weight loss on a 40-day protocol is about 15 to 20 pounds in Women and about 20 to 30 pounds in Men.
During Pregnancy, the placenta naturally produces abundant amounts of HCG. Therefore, pregnant females should not take HCG. If you are on the HCG diet and discover that you became pregnant, stop taking HCG and follow up with your Obstetrician/Gynecologist.
