We just posted a new page to our site that has the answers to HCG FAQs.
Check it out at: HCG FAQs
One of the most common questions is:
Q) How will I know for sure that I’m burning fat and not just losing muscle?
A) With the hCG protocol you will notice your body being reshaped and the flabby areas disappearing quickly. However, you can test your urine with KETOSTIX and ALBUSTIX to prove to yourself that it’s fat that’s being lost and not muscle. This is also a good way to confirm the potency of your hCG.

If you’ve spent any time at all researching the hCG Diet, then you know there are plenty of stories by people that have done it saying how great it works and there are plenty of stories by uninformed people that have NOT tried saying it doesn’t work.
In the latest article I’ve come across bashing hCG for weight loss, the author (Thong M. Dao) has managed to misrepresent practically EVERY fact about HCG.
In his article ‘Don’t Try HCG Weight Loss Until You Read This’, the author states:
“Folks hope to lose weight quickly with the help of fad products, but if you ask me, I never believe in fads, and never will!”
Umm, excuse me, but since when is something tried and tested for over 60 years a fad??? Notice he hasn’t said he’s tried it and it didn’t work – he is saying he doesn’t believe in fads and never will. OK, me neither – so?
Next we have this gem:
“HCG had nothing to do with weight loss until a disreputable author named Kevin Trudeau turned up. He wrote a book announcing the possibility of weight loss with HCG.”
Now this is just COMPLETELY erroneous – as we know, Dr. Simeons was treating patients for obesity with hCG since 1954. It’s unfortunate that Kevin Trudeau is the one thought of as the founding-father of the hCG Diet, but all he did was write a book that brought it to the forefront recently.
Here’s another false claim by the author:
“Not even the manufacturers who produce a synthesized version of this hormone claim that it’s beneficial for obese people. It’s only a handful of doctors and experts who are claiming that they have proof of the relation between HCG and weight loss.”
First off, synthesized versions DON’T WORK!!! HCG only works when natural. Also, it is hardly ‘only a handful of doctors and experts’ – there are hundreds of doctors that are administering this diet protocol SUCCESSFULLY all over the world.
More false statements from the article:
“Lots of tests and studies have been done for nearly 40 years on HCG weight loss. But to this day, there’s still no clear evidence that HCG indeed boosts weight loss. Yet what the doctors claim is different.”
Um, NO – actually there are numerous studies done that DO PROVE hCG boosts weight loss (when accomanied by the very low calorie diet requied by Dr. Simeons’ protocol). And wouldn’t you say that hundreds of thousands of people that have lost weight PERMANENTLY with the hCG Diet provide the ‘clear evidence’ the other says is lacking? Yeah, I thought so too.
How about this one:
“One more thing, HCG hormone has been prohibited in the US for a long time. Therefore, if you want a synthesized product, be ready to pay out the nose. These products can be found in the black market or in other country.”
Nope – wrong again. HCG is FDA-approved in the US. OK, not for weight loss, but off-label use of FDA-approved drugs and hormones happens LEGALLY all of the time – this statement is just FLAT WRONG!
How come no one that writes negatively about hCG can provide FACTS???
Anyone else wondering why this is?

The HCG Diet works like nothing else, but it is a solution of last resort for people that have a serious problem with their weight due to metabolic imbalances.
Instead of injecting HCG as a first step, this should be the last step in the battle of the bulge. Granted, it will work, but it isn’t without ANY risk.
Therefore, BEFORE TRYING THE HCG DIET, read and implement the following little-known weight loss secrets (they’re FREE):
If you can’t lose the weight by doing the steps outlined at the above page, the HCG Diet is for you.

Men typically lose more weight more easily on the hCG Diet than women. But because hCG is a hormone produced by pregnant women, hCG effects on men are a concern many men have and, quite frankly, are unjustified.
The truth is that hCG actually stimulates muscle growth and has zero negative effects on male body chemistry. In fact, many body builders take hCG as part of their ‘steroid stack’ because of its muscle building effects.
The rapid fat loss achieved on the hCG Diet is more profound in men than in women, and the added bonus of stimulated muscle growth makes the hCG Diet for weight loss ideal for men.
So, if you are a man that wants to lose fat and have tried traditional diet and exercise without success, you may have accumulated abnormal fat stores that the hCG Diet can eliminate. Don’t worry about where the hCG comes from – it has been proven 100% safe and effective.

Since hCG requires a prescription, one needs a doctor to write a prescription for hCG. We just posted a new article to our main website about the role of HCG Diet Doctors.
The issue is: Most doctors are opposed to using hCG for weight loss. They simply have not reviewed the research done by Dr. Simeons or investigate the efficacy of hCG for curing obesity.
Therefore, one has to find a doctor already involved in the hCG Diet, either because they have their own medical weight loss clinic, or they work at one or prescribe hCG at their own practice to those patients that inquire about it.
Find out about what types of tests are generally required for hCG diet doctors to write a prescription and what procedures are followed by reading the full article at the above link.

Some claim that the hCG Diet is 100% effective, and others claim it doesn’t work at all and it’s a scam. What are we to make of those that say they are hCG Diet Failures, and using hCG for weight loss didn’t work for them?
We have researched and documented extensively that those making claims that the hCG Diet is a scam are simply wrong. You can read a great post about it here:
So when people say the hCG Diet didn’t work for them, that they did NOT achieve success with the hCG Diet, what went wrong?
First off, there are 2 kinds of hCG weight loss failures:
- Not losing SIGNIFICANT weight with the hCG Diet
- Not keeping the weight off AFTER the hCG Diet
Let’s address #1:
Nobody would be interested in taking hCG injections for weight loss and adhering to a 500 calorie diet if it wasn’t DRAMATICALLY effective. If you want to lose 1-2 lbs. per week, there are a lot of ways to do that, and if you are looking into the hCG Diet, you have most likely TRIED all of these methods (eating sensibly, exercise, weight lifting, etc.)
The appeal of the hCG Diet is the RAPID fat loss that is achieved – 5-10 lbs. per week is common (yeah, you read that correctly).
So when someone starts on the hCG Diet and does NOT achieved fast weight loss, this is considered an hCG Diet Failure.
What went wrong? Here’s a list of top reasons someone might not achieved great results with the hCG Diet:
- Cheating (you know who you are)
- Not drinking enough water
- Using sub-standard hCG from questionable sources
- Taking an Oral or Sublingual form of hCG instead of injections
- Not following Dr. Simeons original protocol (you can get a free copy of his book ‘Pounds and Inches’ on our website)
The other group of hCG Diet Failures are those that lost the weight with the hCG Diet but failed to keep it off (see #2 above).
Since the hCG Diet is touted as a ‘CURE‘ for dieting – it resets the metabolism and ends the need to diet EVER AGAIN – if one doesn’t PERMANENTLY keep the weight off with the hCG Diet, that would be a failure.
So why do some people fail to keep the weight off and enjoy the benefits of the hCG Diet Cure?
Here is the top reason (and maybe the ONLY reason):
Not following Dr. Simeons original program that REQUIRES eating a low/no-carb diet for 3 weeks after completing the hCG Protocol
Some clinics sell hCG weight loss programs along with Vitamin B-12 injections, colon cleansing regiments, etc. because they fail to follow the original protocol developed over 60 years ago by Dr. Simeons.
They are doing their patients/customers a disservice and causing needless failures with the hCG Diet. Sticking to the original protocol by Dr. Simeons guarantees success. This means one MUST:
- Use hCG injections where the hCG purity is guaranteed and not synthetic or of questionable quality
- Drink lots of water
- Load up on fat and calories at the beginning of the protocol
- Stick to the Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) without cheating
- After completing the injection cycle, eating a low/no carb diet for 3 weeks to permanently ‘reset’ the metabolism so one cures oneself from the need to ever diet again
Failure to follow the above will result in either sub-optimal results or hCG Diet Failures.
Truthfully, many people cheat and still lose a ton of weight, so if cheating is something you plan to do, you will still achieve remarkable results (only not AS remarkable!)

According to David L Walters, DO, Ph.D., the use of Oral hCG or Sublingual hCG is an ineffective method of delivering hCG to the body for use in the hCG Diet.
From an article published on his website (www.diet-hcg.com/oral-hcg.html), he claims:
The short answer to the above question is YES, oral HCG and sublingual HCG is a complete and utter fraud. HCG is only biologically active when injected into the body via a hypodermic needle. This fact apparently does not stop numerous web sites from offering “oral” or “sublingual” forms of HCG for sale in order to avoid the need for injections.
But since we are only interested in the TRUTH here at HCG Diet Facts, a (very little) bit of investigation uncovers this from HIS OWN ARTICLE:
“On treatment days 0, 15, and 30 we have tested all volunteers, screening for the presence of plasmatic hCG. Concentrations were undetectable in all cases (data not shown).”*
*Utility of an oral presentation of hCG (human Choriogonadotropin) for the management of obesity. A double-blind study. By D. Belluscio, L. Ripamonte and M. Wolansky. Published on D. Belluscio’s website www.hcgobesity.org.
OK, so far so good, EXCEPT if you follow the link to Dr. Belluscio’s website (oralhcg.com), you will find THIS:
The Oral hCG™ Method is a medically designed protocol, based on the Simeon’s weight loss protocol, that has brought excellent results to more than 6,500 patients treated by me and my collaborators over the last 17 years.
In other words, the article by Dr. Walters claiming Oral hCG is a complete fraud cites a double-blind study done by the Daniel Oscar Belluscio, MD., Founder and Director of The Oral hCG Research Center that conclusively proves Oral hCG is EFFECTIVE!
So, does Oral hCG (otherwise known as Sublingual hCG) work?
The doctor who claims it doesn’t is selling the hCG weight loss treatment in injection form, and cites a study by a doctor studying and using an oral hCG formulation to ERRONEOUSLY prove his case!
Who’s the fraud?

It’s funny how many people are out there saying the HCG Diet is a scam who haven’t tried it, or tried some kind of bastardized version of Dr. Simeons’ original protocol that the good doctor HIMSELF said doesn’t work!
So it’s refreshing when someone actually DOES THE RESEARCH and shows that the very studies these doubters cite are themselves flawed!
The evidence is all there – the HCG Diet Scam claims are false, and the tens of thousands of people enjoying rapid weight loss on the HCG Diet can enjoy a little vindication!

Bob Robeson and his wife LaRainne have been through the hCG diet and were kind enough to grant permission to publish his pics and story. For more hCG Weight Loss Before and After Photos visit his site at: When Health Matters.
This is just one example of the dramatic, life-changing effects that hCG Weight Loss can have.
The first pic shows Bob with a 46″ waist late February 2008.
The 2nd pic shows Bob with 36″ waist December 3, 2008.
This is what Bob said about his hCG weight loss experience:
“I started at over 300 lbs earlier this year, and for the first time
in my adult life I am in the 100’s.
This is after being at or close to 300lbs for 40 years.
I have been on every diet I could find through the years, even the
Medically supervised Optifast where I did not eat anything for 4
months, but soon as I started eating again the weight came back and
This program is so cool because once you are done you can eat again
and not regain the weight.
I was at 213 lbs for 4 months I and I ate well, not like I use to but
very well and stayed at 213 lbs.
Then I started this round and got to my record breaking low weight,
I wish this was FDA approve and I wish we could get the word out to
all obese people every where.
This program saves lives, how cool is that!
No Longer Obese
No longer have Diabetes
No longer have High Blood pressure
No Longer have high cholesterol
No longer have sore knees or feet
No Longer have the Arthritis pains
I Sleep better
Have a Love life again
Have more energy
Look and feel great.
My ending goal is still about 170lbs. But that mile stone will be for
the next round as we finish this round the end of Dec.
Happy Holidays to all.
Bob & LaRainne Robeson”
