Frequently Asked Questions
How does the HCG diet work?
HCG is a natural hormone found in pregnant women. The hCG hormone boosts your metabolism and increases your ability to burn fat at a much higher rate while at the same time reducing cravings & hunger.
Treatment lasts between 26-43 days, followed by 6 weeks of maintenance. This can be followed by another round if more weight is to be lost.
Who is a candidate for the hCG diet?
The majority of men and women in good health can use hCG injections for weight loss. Women who are pregnant or nursing are not candidates for hCG weight loss injections.
How much weight will I lose on the hCG diet?
The amount of weight loss depends on several factors including how much excess fat you have and how much weight needs to be lost. The average expected weight loss for woman is .5-.75/day, and for men it’s .65-.9/day.

HCG & the FDA
These weight reduction treatments include the use of hCG, a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that hCG increase weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or normal distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associted with calorie-restrictive diets.
