HCG for Weight Loss

The HCG (Human chorionic gonadotropin) diet, developed by Dr. Simeons in the 1950s, is a medical weight loss plan that involves pairing a low-calorie diet with injections of HCG hormone to facilitate quick weight reduction.

Individuals aiming to lose weight can benefit from the HCG diet, as it focuses on reducing cravings, promoting fat burning, and preventing muscle loss without causing a slowdown in metabolism.

Effective weight loss relies on two key elements:

Calorie restriction: Individuals adhere to a stringent low-calorie regimen, usually consuming between 650-750 calories daily. This diet emphasizes lean proteins, and vegetables, and restricts carbohydrate consumption.

Women typically burn between 1,500 and 2,500 calories daily, while men burn between 2,500 and 4,000. When following the HCG diet, approximately 650 calories are consumed through food, with the remaining calories sourced from stored body fat. This diet can lead to substantial weight loss within a short timeframe, often resulting in a loss of about ½ to 1 pound per day.

HCG injections:  Administered daily for 4-8 weeks, HCG hormone injections stimulate the hypothalamus gland, which controls the adrenals, thyroid, fat storage, and, most importantly, metabolic rate. When your body needs calories for daily activities, it taps into its stored body fat reserves activated by the HCG hormone.


Targeted fat loss: HCG helps release stored fat from those stubborn, hard to lose areas like the abdomen, hips, and thighs.

Appetite suppression: HCG injections help curb hunger, making it easier to adhere to the low-calorie diet.

Lean muscle preservation: HCG injections prevent muscle loss and provide pure fat loss, making you leaner with a more robust metabolism to help you maintain the weight loss once the HCG diet is complete.
