What is the HCG Diet?

Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a specialist on obesity and weight regulation, introduced a program that has helped many people overcome weight loss resistance. The program utilizes a natural hormone that is produced during pregnancy called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). Dr. Simeons’ theory is that HCG causes the hypothalamus area of the brain to trigger a release of abnormal fat stores. When administered in relatively small doses and coupled with a very low calorie diet, people routinely lose 20 pounds in 30 days. HCG has helped thousands of people lose those stubborn pounds. In addition to weight loss, many patients who have completed the HCG program also experienced many other health benefits, including a drop in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.

How does HCG help me lose weight?

HCG appears to act on the hypothalamus, signaling the body to release stored fat into the bloodstream where it is then available to be used by the cells for nourishment. This alone will not cause weight loss, though, unless you reduce your food intake. This forces the body to use the mobilized fat from the bloodstream. HCG causes the release of abnormal fat without affecting structural fat and muscle tissue. Which means you lose in those stubborn areas--hips, thighs, buttocks and upper arms!

Do I have to follow a special diet while I take the HCG drops?

Yes. You must follow the entire HCG Diet Protocol as described in Dr. Simeons' manuscript, "Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity", where he outlines a special 500-calorie-per-day diet that was tested on thousands of patients. HCG is only effective for weight loss if it is taken while strictly following Dr. Simeons' HCG Diet Protocol, including the 500 calorie diet. Taking HCG alone (without the diet) will not cause you to lose weight. HCG takes effect when you reduce your food intake so that the mobilized fat will be used for your body's energy needs. If you fail to follow the diet you will fail to lose weight. If you only follow the diet without taking HCG, you are simply starving yourself because there is no fat in the bloodstream to burn. Simply put, both are required.

**************************************************
NOTE: THE HCG PROTOCOL MUST BE FOLLOWED EXACTLY, AND MANY OF THE RECIPES LISTED HERE AND ELSEWHERE ONLINE AS "HCG Diet Recipes" DO NOT FOLLOW THE PROTOCOL, OR ARE NOT INTENDED FOR PHASE 2, WHICH IS THE ACTUAL HCG + DIET PHASE. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO READ THE ORIGINAL PROTOCOL AND FOLLOW IT PRECISELY FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS.

I'm waiting on an order and will probably start in a month. I've got 4 others doing it with me because I need the support of a group.

I don't follow protocol. I figure if it's low carb, low fat, low cal and I'm staying within the 500 cals I'm fine. I don't worry about mixing veggies either. Last time I cycled and lost 100. Lbs in 7 months. This time I'm doing continuous. My experiment with no fruit and a 3rd protein didn't producei any weight loss that week. So back to 2 protiens. Been making gnc whey protein shakes with 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
