Its interesting to see how many articles we have found in the news where medical doctors are denouncing homeopathic hcg while they happen to be selling $400-$1000 per month prescription injection and a “doctor supervised” program. Don’t believe these articles when you see them. There are literally 1000′s of real testimonials all over the internet on the massive weight loss people are getting with homeopathic hcg while not injecting full strength hormones into their body.

DALLAS – No matter how much she weighs, 45-year-old Carmen Hillebrand’s family loves her. However, that didn’t stop her from not liking how she looked just three months ago.
“They say, ‘Oh, I love you no matter what.’” she said. “But, you’re feeling like, ‘No, it’s not me. I want to go back to what I was.’”
With the help of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) drops, Hillebrand says she has started to get closer to the way she looked on her wedding day. The drops, which are a pregnancy hormone, are placed under her tongue daily.
Some doctors believe HCG can change the metabolism by tricking the body into acting as though it is pregnant, using stored fat to feed a baby that doesn’t exist. While dieters are placed on a 500-calorie-a-day diet, many claim they don’t feel hungry because the body is flush with fat calories, as if they have eaten more.
HCG is only legal by prescription, according to the FDA. The hormone is currently only approved for use in fertility treatments. But, Hillebrand, and thousands of other dieters, are now buying HCG in stores or online in a homeopathic drop to lose weight.
“It’s been diluted down to where there’s nothing left but the energy of the particular substance,” said Bryan Bradford, a nutritionist at the Sunflower Shoppe. “But, it works on the cellular level.”
Bradford believes in eating right and exercising as the number one method to lose weight. He admits he was skeptical about HCG at first. But, the product has been selling like crazy, and now he too says he is a believer.
“First one or two people, sure, maybe [it's a] placebo,” he said. “But, after hundreds of people now, I know there’s more to it now.”
Marjorie Bell said she never had luck losing weight and keeping it off. On HCG, she says she has lost 72 pounds in the last year without feeling hungry.
“I’ve lost 20 inches off my stomach alone,” she said. “But, I’ve lost 68 total inches off my body.”
WFAA tested two products purchased on the Internet to see if they actually contain HCG, the ingredient that’s supposed to make the diet work. The results on the so-called prescription-strength products were “iffy.” The test on the homeopathic drops were negative for HCG.
Dr. Robert True, a Colleyville gynecologist who prescribes the hormone as part of a $1,000, doctor-supervised weight loss program, said he believes the homeopathic HCG is essentially water.
“Water with extremely diluted HCG inside it,” he says. “Not enough to do anything, and if there was anything there, as I said, it’s probably out of date anyway.”
Prescription-strength HCG only lasts a few weeks and must be stored at a certain temperature. One of the products WFAA purchased online was out of date when it arrived in the mail.
In a statement to WFAA, the FDA said the non-prescription products “are unapproved new drugs and are illegal.”
Critics say it’s actually the 500-calorie restriction that goes along with the HCG diet that makes people lose weight.
Carmen Hillebrand doesn’t know why the homeopathic version works, but she said it just does.
“As of today, it’s 48 pounds,” she said. “I think it’s being really successful for me.”
It appears to me that medical doctors are using their natural credibility to get customers to buy overly expensive hcg injections when the much cheaper homeopathic version works just as well. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment and let us know.
Cheating on the hcg diet can have dramatic effects on the amount of weight you lose. Most people who have done the diet will tell you that the diet is very sensitive to even small instances of cheating. We found a good article on this from Denise Mitchel on this topic.
hCG, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is the hormone present in high quantities in a woman’s blood when she is pregnant. The “job” of the hCG is to make available the necessary nutrients to grow the developing fetus during pregnancy. During a 23 or 40 day hCG Diet Protocol, the “job” of the hCG is to mobilize stored fat to supply the body with its necessary nutrients while restricting the calories you are eating.
So why does one little cheat, just a bite of this food or a little more of that food affect the scale so dramatically, 3+ lbs overnight, while on this diet? It is very simple.
If the hCG finds enough fat in the bloodstream, as a result of the food you are consuming throughout the day, it will not mobilize the stored fat in your body. If the hCG is not actively mobilizing stored fat, you will stop losing weight, you will be extremely hungry, as you are living on the restricted 500 calorie diet, and you may experience extreme fatigue instead of the energetic euphoria that most patients experience during their hCG Diet.
In a nutshell, cheating on the hCG diet is the only reason it will not work. In the first 4-5 days of the hCG diet, you must eat ONLY the foods allowed on the diet plan, to the letter, NO EXCEPTIONS. This strict adherence to the foods on the plan will allow the hCG to start the release of the stored fat, the ball in motion essentially, and set you up for amazing success during the remaining days of your journey. If you are hungry on the hCG diet, first ask yourself, am I in ANY way cheating?
Ways you may be cheating and not even realize you are…
* Using a lesser quality of meat than is required on the diet
* Chewing Sugar-Free Gum
* Drinking Diet Soda or any beverage with artificial sweeteners
* Taking any over the counter medications
* Not taking 30 minutes per day to relax and clear your mind of the stresses of the day
As you can see, there are also some very easy ways to cheat on this diet and not even know it. Diet soda and lesser quality meats being the most abused. When you start the diet, be sure to read the instruction manual and stick to it for the best results. Questions or comments? Be sure to leave them below.
We get men asking us all the time if its ok for them to do the hcg diet. The answer is YES. Men naturally have hcg in their body too. While they don’t have as much as women, they do still have it and it does not create any side effects. Take a look at the following article and learn all about the hcg diet for men
Many males looking to lose weight are interested in the use of HCG treatment. The question pertaining to male HCG side effects automatically arises. What are the male HCG side effects of use if there’s any? Are males in any danger while being on a HCG Weight Loss plan? Let’s examine these questions more in depth below.
If HCG is used correctly there is often little concern for side effects for both male and female. As a matter of fact, HCG is a natural water-based hormone present in both men and women, although it is produced in great amounts in pregnant females. HCG products can safely be used by both male and females that are looking to get their weight under control. The potential male HCG side effects may include common symptoms associated with diet, such as body fatigue, headaches, and irritability. Male HCG side effects can also include the development of soreness or tenderness right in the region where HCG injections are applied, which is a most common side effects while taking injections such as flu shot. In some cases, men have noted the development of restlessness as well, but all of the above side effects are rare in occurrence. If male HCG side effects are noted and become too bothersome, then it is highly recommended that the individual talks to his doctor for consultation. The side effects produced by HCG uses differ between men and women, at least to a certain degree.
Women may face more side effects than men do. For example, females who take HCG treatments for fertility purpose run the risk of developing pregnancy symptoms such as nausea and tenderness of breast tissue. However when HCG shots are used for weight loss reasons, a much smaller dosage is used (125 IU comparing to 10,000 IU for fertility purpose 10,000 IU). So there are rarely side effects reported while using HCG diet injections, or oral HCG for weight loss purpose. Any and all male HCG side effects should certainly be monitored. If any effects develop, it is safe for the user of HCG to consult with his physician. It is recommended that one stop HCG weight loss if such side effects develop at any time. Discussing one’s dieting options with a qualified medical professional are also recommended. To learn more about male HCG side effects and HCG for weight loss, I recommend you checking out HCG Weight Loss, where HCG dieters can learn all the necessary information about HCG Weight Loss and share their experiences in losing weight. This website provides tons of resources and reviews about the revolutionary and effective HCG Weight Loss programs and reviews, along with a HCG Weight Loss forum for dieters to share their challenges and successful stories on weight management.
So as you can see. Men are ok doing the hcg diet and often get much better results than women. We encourage your to speak with your doctor before starting any weight loss program.
This Christmas, help someone with what you’re sure their New Year resolution is going to be… stuff their stocking with the hCG diet!
Although I love the hCG diet, I love gathering together with family and enjoying social meals with them, too… As I’m sure everyone else does.
So, here’s the challenge to everyone out there in cyberspace: If your New Years resolution is to lose weight, change it. Make your New Years resolution to do the hCG diet instead. Why? I’m so glad you asked!
1. Research shows that big and/or vague goals usually fail
2. Research also shows that most New Years resolutions fail within the first six months!
3. Resolving to do the hCG diet is a defined resolution that is easy to do, doesn’t take long, will get you fast results, and will help solidify healthy eating and living after you’re done without having to force it.
4. It’ll be easier for you to do and maintain the weight loss so you won’t have to stress whenever pool/beach season suddenly hits!
Get healthy! Maybe not today, because of the Holidays, but for New Years!
The hCG diet has been picking up more and more steam. Here’s a news broadcast about it in St. Louis on KTVI Fox 2 News:
Again, not only is it great for weight loss, but it’s great for thyroid problems, like hypothyroidism, atherosclerosis (plaque in the arteries), diabetes, and more.
Yes, many experts say not to order hCG drops online, but it is 100% safe to order them from here. They’re based in America, the hormone is manufactured in America, and you know exactly what’s in the drops. I’ve spoken with the founder of the company recently many times and I can tell you he’s a very honest guy. He invited me to take a tour of the facility where the product is manufactured.
This is the ONLY place online you should consider buying from.
Take control of your life. Get healthy NOW!
If you are pregnant, DO NOT start the hCG diet. You need extra nutrition for the baby and it is pointless to try and get thin if you’re pregnant. I would even recommend not doing the hCG diet after you’ve delivered the baby and you’re breastfeeding. The baby robs mothers of many calories through nursing… it’s natural to lose a lot of pregnancy weight while breastfeeding. However, after you’re done breastfeeding and you want to lose some extra fat from being pregnant, this diet is an easy solution.
Once you’re off the hCG drops, you go into something called a “maintenance phase”. Basically, it’s a way of slowly getting your body back into living normal life while maintaining a high metabolic rate.
There are some rules involved with the maintenance phase of the hCG diet:
Rule 1: Increase your calories to 1500 calories per day
Rule 2: No refined sugar (ESPECIALLY high fructose corn syrup) or starchy foods, like p0tatoes
Rule 3: Weigh yourself daily
Rule 4: Drink a lot of water. You want to drink about half your body weight in ounces of water.
Rule 5: Eat plenty of veggies and protein
Rule 6: Avoid milk
Rule 7: Exercise. You just got done burning lots of fat and your body wants something to do with all that extra energy. Go for a few sprints, lift weights for 15 minutes at 30-second reps. Burn some of that newly-found energy!
If you stick to those rules of the maintenance phase for the three weeks following the hCG diet, your metabolism will be high and you’ll be able to live well, eat great, feel fantastic, and look amazing!
It never ceases to amaze me how well the hCG diet program works. I get emails all the time from people who have bought their drops from here because of my advice and have had the best success of all their friends who’ve tried doing the diet. The fact of the matter is that the hCG drops from www.prohcgdiet.com simply are the best hCG drops you can buy online (at least out of the ones I’ve come across).
If you or someone you know hasn’t been getting desired successes, maybe it’s time to try a new formula. I love helping people achieve their goals and I love getting tons of “thank you” emails for helping people accomplish their goals in a realistic, safe, and fast way and for opening their eyes to a new, healthier lifestyle after discontinuing the hCG drops.
Again, the hCG diet program works. I know there are lots of skeptics out there, but just google around or start talking to people you know who suddenly lost weight, feel more active, and look younger and healthier. This hCG diet plan really works!
Well, according to an article in ‘Internal Medicine News‘, the hCG diet really does work… and it works REAL well!
“Fast weight loss worked significantly better than did more gradual weight loss for safely shedding pounds in a randomized study with 120 patients.”
More and more people are starting to realize that this diet works. Yes, people automatically feel turned-off when they find out that it’s a 500 calorie a day diet in addition to hCG drops, but when they see the results and the read article after article about the health benefits you get and the behavior modification you achieve and about how good you feel after you’re done, it suddenly doesn’t become a big deal at all. The hCG drops become the life-changing solution that they once thought too good to be true.
Folks, seriously, if you’re considering this diet, I urge you to do a doctor-supervised plan. However, if money’s tight and you’d like to try doing it yourself or in a small group of friends where you’ll have constant support, get your hCG drops, do yourself a favor and buy your drops HERE. This is the strongest hCG preparation on the market and they have included additives to increase your success on the program.
