What is HCG and what does it do as part of the HCG Diet?

HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin and it is a naturally occurring hormone in pregnant women.  HCG releases stored fat and nutrients for the developing fetus. In the absence of the fetus, HCG still releases and burns stored fat for energy if a low calorie diet is followed. HCG can help to eliminate fat soluble toxins from stored body fat. HCG along with the diet can yield significant loss of body weight. In general, the HCG diet yields little to no loss of muscle mass


HCG is a naturally occurring hormone in the body of pregnant women.

Its purpose is to release stored, fat nutrients for the developing fetus. When HCG is taken and no fetus is present the body ill still release and burn stored fat for cellular energy.† In addition, any fat soluble toxins dissolved in stored fat reserves will be eliminated.  In this way, the HCG diet serves to cleanse and detoxify your body.  Moreover, there is little to no loss of muscle mass unlike many other diets.  HCG is an FDA approved hormone, although it is not specifically approved for weight loss. The use of HCG for weight loss along with the HCG Diet is considered an “off label” use.

What is the History of the HCG Diet and HCG used for Weight Loss?

Dr. A. Simeons was a British physician, practicing in Rome, Italy, who specialized in the treatment of obesity. Through careful, clinical research, Dr. Simeons discovered that small amounts of HCG could reset and adjust the metabolic energy control center in the hypothalamus of the brain to operate at normal levels, as well as to promote the burning of “abnormal” body fat, which is stored in the hips, thighs, belly, buttocks and upper arms that is not readily available for cellular energy production.HCG will, however, spare the “structural” fat that can be found within the muscles, face, palms, soles and in the protective layers around the internal organs.  As a result of sparing the structural fat, the excess, abnormal fat will be mobilized and burned more quickly and overall weight loss and improved physical appearance will happen more efficiently.  HCG also spares the muscle protein body mass.  The late Dr. Simeons published the results of his clinical work and guidelines for the HCG weight loss program in his manuscript “pounds and inches” in 1954 

What are the main benefits of the HCG weight loss program?

Promotes fat loss from body storage sites, attains and maintains your ideal body weight, re-sets and normalizes your energy metabolism, improves metabolic and endocrine gland function, eliminates fat-soluble toxins and cleanses your body, enhances your overall health and well-being.The HCG weight loss program serves to promote substantial fat loss from storage sites in the body that are typically difficult to lose, helps to attain and maintain your ideal healthy body weight, re-calibration and normalization of the hypothalamus, improves cellular energy and endocrine function, as well as supporting systemic detoxification through elimination of fat-soluble toxins, which all serve to promote over all improvement of health and well-being.

Disclaimer HCG is 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 increases 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 associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
