What Is hCG Weight Loss?

hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone naturally occurring in both men and women but produced in large amounts during pregnancy to prepare the womb for the embryo. Using the hormone as a weight loss aid (along with restricted caloric intake) dates back to the 1950s as discovered by Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons. Dr. Simeons determined that the hCG hormone targets the nutrients that are stored in fat cells and convert their content, sending the vital nutrients back into the bloodstream. This process leads the fat cells to shrink to only a fraction of their original size.

How Does Our Program for Sustainable Weight Loss Work?

Our Atlanta hCG weight loss program is typically conducted for 3 – 6 weeks to jump-start long-term weight loss habits. Participants follow a diet that is almost free of fat and contains 500 – 800 calories on a daily basis. This may seem very small, but the natural hormone is so powerful that it greatly reduces the appetite. Most participants adjust quickly to the restricted eating schedule, learning to focus on proper foods for a healthy diet. The user self-administers a day-to-day intramuscular injection of 125 IU of human chorionic gonadotropin or takes the hormone orally as either pellets or drops that dissolve under the tongue.

Most participants experience weight loss of a pound a day without any feelings of weakness or hunger.

Once the hCG weight loss period is completed, patients transition to a healthy lifestyle with proper eating habits and exercise. Because the weight loss results are so drastic in such a short period of time, most participants leave the program with a new sense of vigor about their success and strong determination to continue down the path of weight loss and healthy living.

What Makes the HCG Weight Loss Program Different?

The FDA has declared it illegal for homeopathic hCG drug companies to claim that using their products will result in weight loss. The homeopathic drugs are those available without a prescription, OTC (over-the-counter), or online. In order for such drugs to be called “homeopathic,” and therefore, unregulated by the FDA, they have to have such small traces of the hCG hormone in them that they are not effective in weight loss treatments. So, in turn, people are cutting their diets back to the restricted caloric intake levels of the medical weight loss program without having the proper dosage of the hormone in their system to retrieve nutrients from their fat cells, causing people to get sick and hurt their bodies. Plus, patients on the medical hCG weight loss program are carefully monitored by physicians before starting the program, during, and afterward. The homeopathic diet leaves people without any medical care.

hCG Weight Loss FAQ

How exactly does hCG make you lose weight?

When injected into your body, hCG signals your hypothalamus to release your body’s reserve fat. This has a dual effect of boosting energy and suppressing appetite. As your body burns its stored fat, you begin to lose weight.

How much weight can you lose with an hCG diet?

Results will be unique for each patient, however, some patients report a 1 - 2 pound weight loss per day while on the hCG diet. Weekly weight loss can vary from 2 - 5 pounds.

Is hCG weight loss safe?

While the FDA recommends against over-the-counter hCG weight-loss products and DIY (do-it-yourself) hCG diets, if supervised and administered by an experienced doctor like the members of our team at Atlanta Medical Institute, hCG weight loss can be safe and effective for many people wanting to lose weight.

How much can I eat while on an hCG weight loss program?

One of the key components of an hCG weight loss program is keeping your daily calorie intake between 500 - 800 calories for 3 - 6 weeks. This helps to ensure that you are burning the fat you want to eliminate.
