Support for the HCG Diet / Plan
Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) is a protein-based hormone usually produced by women during the early stages of pregnancy. This hormone is reported to have qualities that aid in the burning of fat. It is also the foundation of the “HCG diet,” which is an extremely caloric restrictive diet, claimed to result in rapid weight loss of up to 1–2 pounds per day without the experiencing hunger pains.
British physician A.T.W. Simeons theorized in 1954 that the HCG hormone allows pregnant women to access fat reserves. That year, he published “Pounds, and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity,”, a manuscript which revolutionized ideas of weight loss world wide and led to the creation of the HCG diet.
Why Buy HCG Injections Kits?
According to Simeons, the HCG weight loss protocol produces a metabolic recovery in which the hypothalamic fat set point can be reset, boosting one's metabolism and increasing their ability to burn fat. The diet requires that a small quantity (125 to 250 I.U.) of HCG be administered once daily over a period of about 23 to 46 days, in combination with a very low calorie diet of about 500 calories a day. Together, this can result in the burning of about 0.5-2 lbs per day.

The HCG hormone effects the Hypothalamus, a small region within the brain near the pituitary gland, signaling the release of stored fat into the bloodstream. This released fat functions to reduce appetite and provide energy. This process prevents the breakdown of intramuscular fat and fat around vital organs and blood vessels. When combined with the low calorie hcg diet, it is effective in the break down of fat despite its location.
How does the HCG Diet Program work?
In combination with moderate exercise, the average woman requires about 1,600-2,600 calories a day, while the average man needs 2,000-3,000 in order to maintain a healthy weight.
The HGC diet requires that you eat only 500 calories per day in an effort to reset your metabolism and tackle any unhealthy or abnormal eating patterns. While eating only 500 calories a day following a healthy balanced diet is generally possible for the average person, such severe calorie restriction could be potentially dangerous and should only be done under a doctor’s supervision.
What is HCG?
HCG is a protein-based hormone produced in the placenta in early pregnancy that is later excreted in urination. The increased rate of production during this stage allows the hormone to act as an indicator for a positive result on home pregnancy tests. Its primary function, however, is to communicate pregnancy and produce a more hospitable uterus for a growing fetus.
HCG also works to maintain the production of progesterone and estrogen, hormones necessary for the development of a healthy embryo. HCG is produced in large amounts during the first three months of pregnancy. Only when the blood levels of HCG increase does the rate of HCG production begin to decrease.
In men, the hormone has been known to increase testosterone levels. HCG is used in considerably smaller amounts in weight loss programs, like Doctor A. T. W. Simeons'.
HCG can increase one's metabolism and assist in the mobilization and the burning of stored fat. In pregnancy this functions to ensure that sufficient energy is provided for the developing fetus despite stress or malnutrition faces by the mother. It is this heightened metabolic function that had attracted interest in the hormone within the context of weight loss programs like the HCG diet. Beyond this, the protein-based hormone is used in high doses as an infertility treatments for both women and men.
Who is the HCG Diet Best Suited for?
The HCG diet is best suited for any healthy adult man or woman with a high BMI (body mass index) and need to lose weight. Patients with certain medical conditions or those who are pregnant may not be approved to buy HCG injections or start the HCG diet. Since the diet requires the intake of so few calories, it is advised that one consult a physician or medical doctor before partaking in the HCG diet.
What is the HCG diet?
Our Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), compounded in the United States by licensed U.S pharmacies, is available as injectable kits (HCG Shots) prescribed by our physicians. When you buy HCG from us, your physician consultation is included.
Daily HCG shots are to be used in conjunction with a very low calorie diet and adequate exercise for weight loss. B12 or Lipo (MIC+B12) may taken as an additional injected supplement or pharmaceutical lozenge 2-3 times weekly to help maximize the effecitveness of the program and help you lose weight. Many have reported losing up to 20lbs or more while participating in the HCG diet program.
What does it look like?
This very low-fat, very calorie restrictive diet is usually divided into three phases:
- HCG Loading phase: The first phase involves consuming plenty of high-calorie, high- fat foods for two days while beginning to take supplemental HCG injections.
- Weight loss phase: Continue taking daily HCG shots , and be sure to consume no more than 500 calories per day for 3–6 weeks. During this phase, one is advised to stick to two meals per day-lunch and a dinner. It is generally suggested that each meal contain one portion of a lean protein source, fruit, a vegetable, and a piece of bread. One may also receive a list of HCG diet approved foods with portion sizes. Things like oils, sugar, and butter should be avoided while mineral waters, tea, and coffee are allowed. It is important that you drink a lot of water and stay hydrated.
- Maintenance phase: At this time you will cease HCG administration while gradually increasing food intake. Be sure, however, to maintain a healthy diet avoid all sugar and starches for at least three weeks.
Those who seek minimal weight loss may spend only three weeks in the middle phase. Those looking for significant weight loss may be advised to follow the diet for up to six weeks. In some case, all three phases of the cycle can be repeated several times for maximized results.
What You Can and Cannot Eat
This diet allows for two meals a day- lunch and dinner. Each including one form of protein, one fruit, one vegetable, and one bread.
List of approved foods:
- Some Fruits: Oranges, apples, half a red grapefruit, and a handful of strawberries
- Non-starchy Vegetables: Celery, cabbage, lettuce, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, spinach, chard, beet greens, chicory, fennel, red radishes, asparagus, and brussels sprouts.
- Lean Meats: Lean ground beef, chicken breast, grilled or broiled veal, shrimp, crab, lobster, and white fish
- Some bread: whole wheat bread products, such as a breadstick, cracker or one piece of melba toast.
The HGC diet does not allow highly processed foods or fast foods, nuts, or anything made with oil, butter, or added Sugar. You can use sugar substitutes as sweetener, but not sugar.
With some creativity and plenty of readily accessible recipes, you’ll have a variety of options to keep you satisfied while on the HGC diet.
Does the HGC Diet Improve Body Composition?
A common side effect of most weight loss programs is a decrease in muscle mass. This is especially common in diets that severely restrict calorie intake. Along with this, the metabolism may slow drastically. Claimed by proponents of the HGC diet, the HCG diet helps prevent lean muscle loss and metabolic slowdown while severely restricting calories. It is also claimed that HCG can lead to an anabolic growth-promoting state, boosting your metabolism and elevating your body's hormones.
Combining the HCG diet with healthy lifestyle changes, like exercise or moderate activity, is advised and known to be an effective weight loss strategy. Eating plenty of healthy high-protein foods while maintaining a healthy diet and also taking an occasional break from your diet can further boost your metabolism and help you achieve weight loss
Can I Lose Weight Safely with the HCG Diet ?
Although the HCG weight loss program can be an effective program for weight loss, it should be carefully distributed and carefully supervised by a physician or registered dietitian. The patient should be assisted and guided from the beginning of the diet to the transition back to meeting nutritional needs, healthy eating, and an average rate of calorie consumption.
Although this diet has produced successful weight loss, and helped people lose weight, it is recommended that you only participate in this type of type for 21-30 days at a time. Most patients do not experience any adverse side effects while participating in the HCG diet.
Tips to ensure you lose weight safely:
- Follow the directions closely
- Stay hydrated
- Do not skip meals
Possible Side Effects
Like other very low calorie diets, hunger and reduced energy remain the most common side effects of the HCG diet due to the low calorie intake. The diet is designed to reduce fat while maintaining muscle, but the reduced calories can affect energy levels. You may be advised by our doctor to reduce your physical activity or fitness efforts during the calorie restriction phase of the HCG program.
How safe is injectable HCG
Participants are evaluated by our doctors. The completion of a medical questionnaire and telemedical consultation is required. It is recommended that you consult a physician prior to beginning any diet.
The HCG diet program includes a very low daily dose injection. The injection site is subcutaneous (beneath the skin). Full instructions along with prep supplies, tools, and more are provided in the HCG diet kit. This includes alcohol pads, syringes, and other prep supplies needed for your HCG shot.
How do I prevent weight gain after the diet is over?
Learning your body’s response to the program and understanding the basic principles of this diet will help. As with all weight loss programs, a healthy lifestyle including regular exercise is the key to keeping the weight off. Remember, this diet is not just for the quantitative loss of unwanted fat and weight. This diet if done properly, is designed to change your metabolism by changing your knowledge about fat loss, weight loss and healthy eating habits in general.
Controversy regarding the HCG diet and other low calorie diets
A statement released by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the 1970s claimed that there is no scientific evidence stating that HCG in combination with a diet very low in calories contributed to weight loss beyond the results of lower calories. According to current specialists, this statement is now rejected, with said specialists emphasizing the importance of fat loss over weight loss. When fat loss occurs, weight may decrease disproportionately. Remaining fat stores are redistributed throughout your body. Despite scientific evidence, HCG dieters will notice visible changes and evidence of weight loss once the body has reestablished a fat equilibrium.
Is HCG approved by the FDA?
Legal notice and disclaimer:
the United States FDA has not approved HCG for weight loss treatment. The use of HCG for weight loss is an “off label” use which means that it is considered safe when prescribed by a licensed physician. Over the counter use or sale is not approved.
Food and Drug Administration labeling for the approved Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) drug products require the following statement about the use of the HCG products for weight loss:
"HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or 'normal' distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets."
DISCLAIMER: HCG has been approved by the FDA for treatment of other conditions. Therefore, USHCGShots.com does not guarantee any specific weight loss result. Information provided on this site is based on analysis of scientific studies, historical research, and results from other HCG patients.
