Frequently Asked Questions You Need To Know

What is the difference between sublingual  hCG and hCG injections?

The hcg we sell is sublinqual . The way the sublinqual hcg is produced (in a nutshell) is by taking small amounts of the original strength hcg and making it into a sublingual mixture which is administered under the tongue.  The homeopathic version is then taken 2 times a day to keep the amount of hcg in your body constant.  We have many clients who have tried both versions, and report no differences between the two.

Does Your hCG come pre-mixed?

Yes. It comes pre-mixed and ready to use.

Who can use the diet?

The treatment works for almost everyone, young, old, male, female. You can use HCG if your BMI value is not lower than 20. Always check with your doctor before beginning any new weight loss program. Do NOT use HCG if you are pregnant or nursing.

Will my birth control methods be affected by using hCG?

hCG will not interfere with any form of bith control.

Are there any side effects with using hCG?

There are no side effects associated with HCG. Very few experience slight headaches or dizziness for the first few days but this is extremely rare and mild. hCG has been used for weight loss for 50+ years, so there is plenty of evidence to back up its safety.

How many IU’s are in sublingual hCG?

  0.4 ml per day = 125 IU per day
  0.5 ml per day = 165 IU per day (this works best for most people)
  0.6 ml per day = 175 IU per day
  0.7 ml per day = 200 IU per day

Will the hCG interfere with medications my doctor has prescribed to me?

It is a good idea to consult with your doctor before beginning any weight loss program.. 

Does this have to be refrigerated?

Yes.  To insure it's stability during the time of use.   It will be stable up to 60 days with refrigeration.

Can I continue the program for longer for 45 days?

Please contact us for instructions on how to continue the program beyond 45 days and special pricing.

  • Will I keep the weight off?

    After the HCG diet, you will find your appetite has changed, your eating behavior will be changed and your body will of course, have changed. This is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight. You will find a minimum amount of exercise will be sufficient for maintaining a very healthy body- from yoga, to 15 minutes a day cardio a day, or whatever you enjoy, that you’re your heart moving. With your hypothalamus reset, your metabolism will be different and you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat. Amongst the people who have tried this program, 75 to 90% have had hardly any or no difficulty keeping their new, ideal weight.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Weight loss varies between .5 pound and 3 pounds per day, with the average loss being 1-2 pounds per day. 

Is it healthy to lose 1-2 pounds a day with hCG?

While losing 1-2 pounds daily without the use of HCG would be unhealthy, the HCG in fact changes this.  You lose fat and the weight loss comes directly from this fat loss and does not strip the body.

Why the 500 calorie diet?

HCG causes your hyphothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use.  While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body.  Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day.  The result is your body using thousands of calories from fat from your body each day, the reason hCG dieters lose 1-2 pounds of fat or more, per day.

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week. You will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying .  This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released.  It is common that hCG dieters feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500 calorie limit.

What is the hypothalamus gland?

The hypothalamus gland moderates the thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and more importantly, your metabolic rate.

How is the sublingual hCG administered?

hCG is most effective when placed under your tongue.  It comes in liquid form and the  calabrated oral syringe is supplied with your hCG bottle, so there is no guess work in measuring.   Studies have shown that using 0.5 ml  2 times per day is the most effective dosing.

Will I lose more weight if I use the injections instead of the homeopathic hCG??

Patients report the same results from both forms of hCG.  The difference is that the injectable generally is only effective for 21-25 days and then stops working, while the sublingual continues to be effective for up to 45 days.  After 45 days your body may develop an immunity to the hCG.

Are there specific foods I should or should not eat while on the diet?

Yes! With your purchase you will be given a shortened Simeon's Protocol which will include access to the specific  diet regimen.   For great receipes and great tracking sheets see our "Diet and Recipe and Tracking" ebook.

What makeup can I use during the protocol?

What lip products can I use?

Can I use Carmex™ and Chap Stick?
