HCG Questions

What is hCG?

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta in pregnant women and almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus throughout the pregnancy.  Contrary to popular belief however, the hCG used in the Hcg diet protocols is a variation of the hCG form used for fertility treatments, and in a much smaller dose.  All hCG used for medical purposes   is natural, but created in laboratories from sterile cells.  It is NOT extracted from women or animal urine- a common misconception.

Is HCG safe for men?

The hCG hormone is naturally present in men. It is found in every human tissue, including males, pregnant women, and non-pregnant women. Based on our customer results, men report faster results and tend to lose more weight than women.

How much weight will I lose with the hCG diet?

Most hCG dieters report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day.  At the very least, ½ pound a day, and at the most, 3+ lbs a day.  1 lb is generally lost in the first day.  Factors that guarantee faster weight loss include increasing vegetable intake and mixing salad with each meal.  Fiber intake is extremely important, as is water intake.

 Why doesn’t a pregnancy test show positive when I test the drops on it?

Our exclusive HCG Diet Direct® weight loss plan is homeopathic. Homeopathically derived hCG usually will not show up in a pregnancy test due to the homeopathic potentization process. But it can be tested in a lab for efficacy.

Homeopathy is based on both physical ingredients that you can see and resonance/frequencies that you cannot see. It is a very labor intensive process. It is very important that you deal with an experienced, reputable lab. The manufacturer we use for our products is a federally registered laboratory in full compliance with FDA and HPUS regulations governing manufacturing facilities. See FAQ number 3 for more information on FDA Establishment and manufacturing practices.

What is the difference between prescription and non-prescription HCG?

Prescription hCG is usually pure pharmaceutical grade hCG with no supporting elements added. Prescription hCG can be very effective but must be obtained and monitored only by a licensed medical physician, as with any prescription. Pure hCG is usually administered by injection only.

Our non-prescription homeopathic HCG Diet Direct® weight loss formula is homeopathically derived and blended with other natural ingredients to support weight loss. All of our HCG Diet Direct® homeopathic products are available with out a prescription and therefore are a more affordable option than prescription hCG.

Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with hCG shots?

hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle.  In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from unhealthy fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body.  For this reason, hCG dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.

Why the 500 calorie diet – VLCD (very low calorie diet )?

hCG diet shots cause your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use.  While you are only consuming 500 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 1 to 2 lbs of fat or more, per day.

Is it ok to skip a meal or protein at one of my meals?

No you don’t ever want to skip any of your meals. Its important to eat all of your calories and especially your protein so that you only lose fat and not muscle.

Is the use of hCG drops for weight loss legal?

A medical doctor may prefer not to use hCG for weight loss due to the FDA’s lack of recommendation, however they are legally able to do so in the US.  It is advised that you check your country’s laws to be certain, however, for most countries, hCG diet drops are legal.  If importing hCG from abroad, be sure to check your local laws and follow whatever restrictions are called for.

Is it legal to order hCG from overseas pharmacies?

While it is recommended to check for amendments to the importation guidelines, as of January 2007, it is still legal to import hCG for personal use.  An individual supply of no more than 3 months is generally acceptable for meeting the “personal use” standard.  Resale of imported pharmaceuticals is a federal offense.

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week, you will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying.  This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released.  It is common that hCG dieters feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit!

Will you gain the weight back after hCG?

There is no reason you should, so long as you have replaced any former negative eating and inactive lifestyle habits with new, healthy perspectives on food and exercise.

Most post-hcg dieters find a minimum amount of daily activity is sufficient to maintaining their hCG weight loss goal. A minimum amount of exercise is recommended not only for weight maintenance, but also for the added health benefits.  Recommended activities include:  Yoga, 20 minutes of cardio, or any number of activities you may enjoy, that gets your heart moving.  With your hypothalamus, “reset” and your metabolism will reflect these differences.  and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat.

What is the hypothalamus gland?

The hypothalamus gland moderates the thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and more importantly, your metabolic rate.
