Frequently Asked Questions About HCG


Is HCG safe for men?

HCG is naturally found in all the human tissue of all males and females alike. It is therefore safe for men to use. Men actually get faster results and tend to lose more weight than women.

If HCG works so well for weight loss, why don’t pregnant women lose weight?

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.

Why are so many people calling the HCG weight loss “cure”?

Lots of HCG users call it a weight loss “cure” rather than just another weight loss method, After finishing the program and losing the weight, it resets your body to use stored fat for energy when it detects calorie reduction for a period of time. It then helps you optimally maintain your weight and efficiently keep off the kilograms and centimeters you have shed.

Will my metabolism slow down if I am on a very low calorie diet?

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-saving source of stored energy. When a low calorie diet is used in conjunction with the HCG, the hormone signals the body to use stored fat for energy, and will eliminate excess fat reserves. It is a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result. The HCG keeps the body from going into starvation mode and holding onto fat as it resets your metabolism.

Would I lose the same weight by eating a minimally low calorie diet without HCG?

Sure, you can lose weight by consuming fewer calories and fat, but because the body retains fat when deprived of calories, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes your cellular metabolism to slow down, and eventually making adding 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 the muscle and bone.

With HCG you can lose the weight quickly and keep it off!!

Will the HCG Diet help me keep my weight off?

According to Dr.Simeons, the first doctor to pioneer the HCG Diet, if the HCG diet protocol is followed the ending result will be that the hypothalamus gland (the gland that helps regulate weight & metabolism) will be reset. Dr Simeons suggests that the body rethinks how to handle stored fat and appetite. With proper diet and exercise the weight loss with the HCG diet can last a lifetime.

What is the hypothalamus gland?

The hypothalamus gland moderates, thyroid, adrenals, fat storage and more importantly your metabolic rate. As we age, our hypothalamus progressively accumulates toxins, causing it to malfunction. This is partially the reason why our metabolism slows down as we age.

Is there an age limit for the HCG diet and does it work for everyone?

We have seen success from young to old.

Do I have to follow a special diet?

The HCG diet injections cause your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available to use. While you are only consuming 800 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your body each day, the reason HCG dieters lose 0.5kg of fat or more per day.

HCG is only effective for weight loss if it is taken while strictly with the diet protocol. If you fail to follow the diet you will fail to lose weight. If you only follow the diet without taking HCG, you are simply starving yourself because there is no fat in the bloodstream to burn.

Simply said, BOTH, HCG and a low calorie diet is required

What food am I allowed to eat?

The HCG diet is balanced, unlike many extreme “fad” diets out there. It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch. You eat them in specific portions and combinations.

How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?

Every person is different and results vary. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have, your age and gender. People that have recently dieted will also lose weight slower since the metabolism has already slowed down.

Will HCG interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera Injections?

HCG doesn’t interact with any medications. That includes birth control pills and Depo-Provera.

What about pregnancy and taking HCG?

If you are pregnant DO NOT take HCG. If you become pregnant during the HCG diet, stop taking HCG and consult your OB-Gyn.

Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking HCG?

Since the amount of HCG is so relatively low, there probably won’t be any changes to your menstrual cycle. Similarly, HCG won’t affect your ability to become pregnant, and also neither increases your odds of getting pregnant.

The HCG Diet can be started any time in a women’s cycle and does not have to be stopped during menstruation.


Do I have to take vitamins while doing this diet?

A good multi-vitamin helps, however, make sure it is sugar free and has no fat soluble ingredients like fish oils. Also make sure that the b6 is under 30mg per day as it may trigger hunger. Potassium is also good especially if you experience leg cramps, which can be common while on this diet.
