HCG Diet


The HCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) accompanied by treatments of HCG, usually by injection. The average HCG dieter experiences rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 3 pounds per day. In addition to the loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the HCG protocol is its ability to help modify the dieter’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained long-term weight loss.


HCG stands of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone present in both men and women but which is produced in great amounts in pregnant females. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions. In non-pregnant persons, research suggests HCG similarly increases the metabolism similar to a pregnant female’s. Thousands of calories in stored fat are released, and are used by the body or expelled. To keep the fat cells from immediately taking in more fat, the very low fat VLCD is necessary and personal care products such as lotion are prohibited.

Dr. A.T.W. Simeons’ research suggests a small amount of HCG injected daily results in an average weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day when accompanied by a VLCD.

Patients can lose 20-30 pounds during a 40 day treatment, which consists of 20 days of HCG injections and 20 days of a “maintenance phase” designed to help you continue to develop new, healthy eating habits while continuing to lose weight. Patients requiring the loss of more weight can have a second or even more courses. A second course can be started after an interval of not less than six weeks, though the pause can be more than six weeks after your last HCG injection. Your physician will work with you on determining the appropriate duration of your treatment based on your weight loss goals.
