If you are like most people who struggle with their weight, you have probably tried a lot of different diets and exercise programs to try to lose weight. Some of these programs might have been successful initially, but many people find that they gain the weight back when the diet ends. If this applies to you, the HCG diet might be the answer you have been looking for.

What Is HCG?

HCG is human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone produced by a woman’s body when she is pregnant. In fact, HCG is the hormone tested in most home pregnancy tests. This hormone has been found to be an effective component for weight loss because it reduces hunger and allows you to more easily follow a diet and exercise regimen. 

The Diet

The HCG diet is comprised of two components—a low fat, low calorie diet combined with regular HCG injections. There are a lot of products out there claiming to raise HCG levels including drops and oral supplements, but these are not effective. Only the injections can give you the amount of HCG you need to support weight loss. The diet itself may be between 500 to 1500 calories per day depending on your medical history and weight.


You cannot cheat with the HCG diet. Taking the HCG injections alone will not help you lose weight. You must follow the diet, and you must exercise. While HCG is one of the things that can help you maintain your diet plan, it is not a replacement for diet and exercise. All three components of the diet must be in place for you to lose weight effectively.
