HCG FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is HCG?
HCG is an acronym for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is a hormone naturally produced in the body of women (although pregnant women have the highest levels). During pregnancy, HCG is the main controller of a woman’s metabolic system and tells her body to metabolize her stored fat and use it as energy.
HCG is used in small doses for weight loss to tell your body to use your stored fat in trouble areas (i.e. hips, legs, stomach, buttocks and arms) first, as energy, rather than burning your good fat and muscle. This process also allows your body to release stored toxins.
You can lose up to 3 pounds per day; however, the average dieter loses 1 to 2 pounds a day. Your daily intake of vegetables, salad, fiber and water is extremely important to losing weight. Your current weight, and how much weight you have to lose, is also a factor in how much weight you will lose.
Since the weight loss comes from stored fat and not muscle or good fat your body is not stripped of its needed muscle, vitamins and minerals.
While on a low calorie diet the HCG causes your hypothalamus gland to use your stored fat as energy. Your body is still operating on more calories per day thus allowing you to lose 1 to 2 pounds of fat each day.
Yes, you can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but it is very unhealthy. Without the HCG your body goes into starvation mode and stores fat while slowing down your metabolism. You will most likely lose muscle and good fat before your body uses its stored fat. By using the HCG drops your extra fat is used for energy. Through this process you can quickly lose the weight and keep it off!
Normally while on a low calorie diet your body stores fat and your metabolism slows down. This is due to your body going into starvation mode. The HCG drops signals your body to release the stored fat and convert it into energy.
Your hypothalamus gland moderates your thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and most importantly your metabolic rate.
The amazing part of this diet is that most people are not hungry. However, during the first few days it is common to have mild hunger due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate.
Yes, most people do not eat their fruit with their meals but prefer to eat them as a snack (i.e. grapefruit in the morning and an apple in the afternoon).
No, NEVER skip any of your meals. It is important to eat all 1200 calories each day—especially your protein so that you only lose stored fat and not important muscle.
Both men and women who have a minimum of 12 pounds to lose are great candidates for the HCG diet. It is recommended that you consult with a physician prior to starting any weight loss diet. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not be on the diet.
After the diet your appetite and your eating behavior will have changed. Good eating habits along with regular exercise will help you keep off the weight. Your hypothalamus and metabolism will be reset enabling you to eat moderately without feeling a need to overeat.
HCG is extremely safe. Women have high levels of HCG during pregnancy with no side effects. The small amount used in the diet has no side effects.
The HCG hormone is found in both male and female human tissue. It is safe for men. Men usually have faster results and lose more weight than women while on the HCG diet.
HCG is called the “Weight Loss Cure” because of the immediate gratification of weight loss by using stored fat for energy and because the diet resets your metabolism for long term weight control.
HCG has been used to treat obesity since 1954. Every day it is becoming more widely known and more popular in the United States.
You should not exercise while on the HCG diet. However, it is recommended that you walk outside for 20 minutes a day, regularly use a sauna and do yoga. Exercise is strongly encouraged after you complete phase 2.
A few people experience light headaches during the first week. This is caused by your body releasing fat cells at a rapid pace and your body going through a major detox. You can take Aspirin or Tylenol as long as it is not sugar coated.
Yes, phase 2 should last a minimum of 21 days and a maximum of 40 days. After you complete phase 3 you have to take a 21 day break before starting a new cycle. This is important because it ensures that your body does not become immune to HCG. Remember not to take the drops the last 2 days of your diet in phase 2.
Remember that you are going to average 1 pound per day. Some days you will lose more and some days you will lose less, or you might even gain weight. Be patient and stick to the diet—it really works! Also remember it is important not to cheat while on the diet. Cheating can cause weight increase.
If you see a plateau in your weight loss then you can have an “apple day.” An apple day on the HCG diet is to eat an apple whenever you are hungry up to six apples per day. This should only last one day. During the apple day no other food or liquids except water are allowed. You should only drink enough water to quench an uncomfortable thirst. Most people feel no need for water. Most of the weight loss on an apple day is due to the elimination of water and the weight is not regained when you resume your normal 1200-calorie diet.
Since you are eating less it is common to have less bowel movements than normal. If you are uncomfortable, you can take a magnesium herbal supplement.
We strongly encourage you to purchase and read “Pounds and Inches” by Dr. Simeons and “The Weight Loss Cure They Don't Want You to Know About” by Kevin Trudeau.
If you have reached your weight goal before the end of phase 2 you should eat 200 grams of meat instead of 100 and you can increase your fruit servings to 3 or 4 a day. Even after you have reached your weight loss goal it is important to continue the minimum 21 days in phase 2 and all other phases in the HCG diet in order to cleanse your body of all the toxins and reset your metabolism.

No. Since it is homeopathic HCG and not prescription HCG, it does not have the hormone to trigger a pregnancy test. See the question on homeopathic HCG in FAQs.

We suggest standing in front of a mirror to do your drops to ensure you are only doing 10 drops each time (30 per day). Lightly press the dropper so that you can count out each drop. If you are taking too much, you may run out. We have done our best to ensure there are approximately 1,680 drops in each bottle (30 drops x 40 days).
There is no harm but research has shown there is no benefit either. The 4oz bottle is sufficient for the 40 days of the diet in helping to trigger and maximize fat loss.
We ship the following business day from the time of your order via USPS first class mail from CA. First Class mail is 3-4 business days for arrival for most parts of the US. For Canada, we have found that it is closer to 7 business days.
