HCG FAQ’S

HCG FAQ’s


Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a specialist in obesity and weight regulation, introduced a program that has helped many people overcome weight loss resistance. Our program utilizes Dr. Simeons diet protocol and our specially formulated HCG UFL sublingual drops. When the drops are administered in relatively small doses and coupled with a low calorie diet, people routinely lose 1 to 2 pounds per day. Our program has helped thousands of people lose those stubborn pounds. In addition to weight loss, many patients also experienced many other health benefits, including a drop in cholesterol, blood pressure, and blood sugar..

HCG are sublingual drops that helps burn off excess fat on your thighs, hips, and upper arms and changes the way you eat. Our HCG sublingual drops are homeopathic, so they are safe and have virtually no side effects. The HCG information is abundant and documented. HCG modifies the way you eat and changes your appetite, so you can easily maintain the low-calorie diet we recommend through our HCG program. You’ll get all the nutrients your body needs, feel full, and develop the healthy eating habits you’ve always wanted!.

Rapid weight loss, increased energy, clearer thought processes, improved sleep, feeling less irritable, better moods, balanced emotions, clearer skin, fewer cravings, loss of abnormal body fat, re-sculpting of your body, etc..

Normally when we cut back our calories and eat a very low calorie diet, our bodies tend to preserve fat and nutrient stores. Our hypothalamus sees that there are not many calories in our blood so it makes our metabolism slow down. Our body wants to conserve the fat because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When the HCG UFL drops are utilized with a low calorie diet, the hypothalamus signals the body to mobilize the calories out of the abnormal fat storage locations. These stored calories are used for energy and fuel our daily actions. The excess or abnormal fat reserves are reduced causing you lose weight..

NO! You must stick with the foods outlined in Dr. Simeons manuscript, “Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity.” You absolutely must stick to the approved foods and portions that are in the manuscript. This protocol has been shown to be successful only as directed. The unique combination of the HCG UFL drops plus a very strict specific food consumption plan has been shown to work while other regimens have not. The exact foods used cause specific chemical reactions in the body and with the HCG UFL drops the hypothalamus is activated into mobilizing the secure abnormal fat reserves causing dramatic weight loss. It is of the utmost importance to strictly consume the foods in the original diet protocol for this to successfully work! Taking the drops alone (without the diet) will not cause you to lose weight. HCG UFL drops takes effect when you reduce your food intake so that the mobilized fat will be used for your body’s energy needs. If you fail to follow the diet while taking the required dosage of drops you will fail to lose weight. Simply put, both are required. Any variance away from these guidelines will result in less success at losing weight. Thus, we only recommend strict adherence to the guidelines of the diet..

In order to answer this question you need to understand how the body stores and uses fat. Dr. Simeons identified three separate fat stores: Normal fat: This type of fat can be likened to a checking account from which the body can easily draw energy or deposit it as needed. Normal fat doesn’t take a lot of effort to lose. Structural fat: Pads the various organs, protects the arteries and cushions the bony prominences. You don’t ever want to lose this fat. It is vital to your health and well being. Yet, on the typical “starvation” diet, this is the fat you lose when the normal fat is depleted. Abnormal fat: This is much like a bank safe deposit box, where fat is stored and basically locked away. This fat is very difficult to lose via exercise and calorie restriction, but with the help of the HCG drops the body readily pulls fat from these “last resort” fat stores. Bottom line: If you go on a low calorie diet without our drops, the body uses the normal fat and then starts to use the structural fat and muscle. Losing your structural fat and muscle tissue can adversely affect your health and well-being. In addition, “starvation” diets without our specially formulated HCG drops can cause you to be excessively hungry, which is typically not true for those using our drops on Dr.Simeons’ special low calorie schedule..

The vast majority of our customers indicate they were either not hungry (unlike other diets where they were starving), or they felt in control and surprisingly little hunger and had plenty of energy. Our HCG drops are helping you get the majority of energy and calories from stored fat instead of only food in your stomach. Everyone is different — and some report mild hunger in the first week as their body adjusts — but it has become very clear that the Healthy HCG diet plan is something very special, something out of the ordinary. The HCG diet starts with a “gorging” phase, which helps load the body with calories to use during transition into the low-calorie phase. People who faithfully follow the protocol as outlined by Dr. Simeons in our materials, and stick to it will see fantastic results. We encourage you to TRY it (we have a money-back guarantee) and see for yourself..

The HCG UFL diet is balanced, unlike many extreme “fad” diets out there. It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch. You eat them in specific portions and combinations. With your program you will be given access to our Members Only section where you will find the HCG UFL diet protocol (vegetarian & vegan Protocols available), recipes, weight loss tips and much more..

Yes. You can eat your fruits for breakfast or as a snack. Keep in mind that you get 2 fruits a day..

It is not recommended. It’s important to eat all of your meals, especially your protein. If you are feeling full, it is recommended to split your meals up. Have your fruit for breakfast and as a snack instead of with your lunch or dinner..

Yes. Vegetarians and vegans can use the HCG diet for weight loss. We offer a vegetarian and vegan protocol that’s available in the members only section with your purchase..

Yes. The Diet protocol consists of proteins, fruits, vegetables, and very little starch. This will not interfere with being lactose intolerant. If you are a vegetarian there are different choices of protein other than dairy products..

There is no limitation or restriction on salt intake. However, increased consumption of salt is one of the biggest causes of weight fluctuation and inconsistency due to water retention. Therefore, be moderate about your salt intake..

While on the HCG UFL diet protocol, you absolutely should NOT consume any alcohol. Clients whom have been drinkers or even those that are borderline alcoholic, do surprisingly well on the HCG UFL diet. If the simple instructions are followed correctly, the HCG UFL diet will get them out of their drinking routine. These clients have even said that they don’t even feel the need to drink while on the HCG UFL diet because HCG UFL drops are formulated to work with the hypothalamus gland which controls the emotional eating/ drinking part of the brain, along with other aspects..

It takes three days for the HCG UFL drops to fully enter your system and begin circulating your abnormal fat stores. Filling your fat reserves by ‘loading’ helps to prevent hunger during the first week of the protocol..

Consuming high fat foods is recommended. For example, whole milk, dairy products, pastries, pizza, fast foods, nuts, oils, etc..

Smooth Move tea is great! We recommend using two teabags in an 8-12 oz glass of hot water..

You can use any mineral makeup or pressed powders and of course oil free foundations. Eye makeup such as eye shadow, mascara, eye liner, and lipstick are allowed. No lotions, moisturizers or liquid make-up with OIL. You can use mineral oil (baby oil) if needed as a moisturizer. During protocol, your skin is very sensitive to oils, creams and fats. These could slow the weight loss process down. A complete approved product list is available in the member’s only section which you will have access to with your purchase..

Yes, provided that they do not contain oils in the ingredients. A complete approved product list is available in the member’s only section which you will have access to with your purchase..

A complete approved product list is available in the member’s only section which you will have access to with your purchase..

Yes..

As soon as you complete your program, you are permitted to use any of your regular products. It is only while you are taking the drops that you should stick to the approved products. A complete approved product list is available in the member’s only section which you will have access to with your purchase..

Much of it depends on your starting point. The more weight to lose the more weight is lost. On average, our clients lose around 15-40 lbs. per month. It is not unusual for some people to lose 10 to 12 lbs in the first week..

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

Yes. There have been no negative side effects reported..

Many times what we see is a large amount of weight loss in the first month, then a plateau or leveling off. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, clients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion..

HCG UFL drops are formulated to reset the hypothalamus to prevent future weight gain, provided that a minimum of 23 days with a maximum of 45 days on the protocol has been completed. 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..

NO! Exercise is not a mandatory part of the program and not required for weight loss. However, we do recommend moderate activity for all of the other benefits you receive; including stress relief and cardiovascular health (walking and yoga are excellent choices). If you are already accustomed to exercising at a certain level and would like to continue, do so, but do not over do it. Pay attention to your body’s response. Scale down the intensity of the workouts if: (1) you don’t have the energy to get through it; (2) you start feeling ill or light headed; (3) you gain weight the next day; or (4) you don’t have the energy to get through the day after you work out then you know your pushing your body too far and you will need to cut your intensity level down. Our suggestion for those who want to exercise is that you walk for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Walking is a great exercise and contributes to your health in a variety of ways. It helps relieve stress, keeps the bowels moving, conditions your cardiovascular system, and encourages better blood/oxygen circulation. When you are finished with the diet regimen and are back on a regular diet you can then pick up the intensity of your exercise routines..

After 45 doses, the effectiveness diminishes due to the body’s ability to develop temporary immunity to the HCG drops. However, if necessary, subsequent courses of HCG drops can be resumed after a 4 week stabilizing period. In some instances, 4 or more courses have been given with continued effectiveness if a 4-week interval has been allowed between them..

It takes around four weeks for immunity to go away. After that time, you can start another 45 days of HCG drops if you have not reached your weight loss goals. This leap frog schedule can be continued until you have lost the weight you desire..

We recommend you consult your prescribing physician. We assume it to be okay but strongly recommend consulting your doctor prior to beginning any weight loss plan. When undergoing the diet protocol, you must not discontinue any medication prescribed by your Physician. We haven’t heard of any major side effects associated with certain medications, however, your doctor knows your health better than we do. Ibuprofen or aspirin are fine to take while on the diet..

It is best to start the HCG diet one week prior to the start of your menstrual cycle or immediately after the end of your cycle. If you start the HCG diet, and during the weight loss phase begin to menstruate, DO NOT stop taking the drops. Continue the diet normally. Continue taking the drops along with the low calorie diet. During these days, consume high volumes of water, and take aspirin for cramp pains..

If you are pregnant or become pregnant during the HCG UFL diet program, stop taking the HCG UFL drops and consult your physician..

It is best to consult with your healthcare provider..

Congress passed a law in 1938 declaring that natural remedies are to be regulated by the FDA in the same manner as nonprescription, over-the-counter (OTC) drugs, which means that they can be purchased without a physician’s prescription..

There are no side effects associated with the HCG drops. Very few experience slight headaches or dizziness for the first few days but this is extremely rare and mild. This is because your body is releasing fat cells very rapidly and you will be going through a major detox. As your body fat is released for use as fuel, it also frees up accumulated toxins. These symptoms are common with almost all detox methods. You may take an Aspirin as long as it’s not sugar coated..

The hypothalamus is a part of the diencephalon area of our brain. This is the vital part of the brain which controls all of the autonomic functions of the body, including breathing, heartbeat, digestion, sleep and the complex functions of the endocrine system. One of the many functions of the endocrine system is regulation and control of your metabolism and weight. The hypothalamus gland also moderates the thyroid, adrenals, fat storage, and more importantly, your metabolic rate..

The HCG diet program works the same for men and women young and old. You can use the HCG drops if your BMI value is not lower than 20. Most people on this program report losing between 1 to 2 pounds per day, and claim it is the only program where they have been able to keep the weight off afterward. Always check with your doctor before beginning any new weight loss program. Do NOT start the HCG diet program if you are pregnant or nursing..

Yes. The majority of clients report feelings of greater energy, better moods, balanced emotions, better sleep, clearer skin, fewer cravings, and more throughout the HCG treatment period. They do not report irritability or weakness. It has also been reported to relieve and often clear symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc. Also, they notice a decrease in the size of their body circumferences. Not to mention, clothing starts to get loose and a very important remodeling of body contour is observed..

The HCG drops are most effective when placed under your tongue. It comes in liquid form and the dropper is supplied with your bottle, so there is no guess work in measuring. Studies have shown that taking six drops six times a day is the most effective dosage..

Taking Vitamin B-12 is an essential part of the HCG UFL diet. The HCG Ultimate Fat Loss B12 supplement is the recommended B supplement because it is in liquid form and is absorbed right in your system. Our B12 is specially formulated for the HCG diet. This supplement helps with producing and maintaining energy levels as well as increasing your metabolism. Remember, to stay away from fat soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, D and E as they can impede the fat burning process. Potassium is another great supplement to take while on the HCG UFL diet..

ACETYL-L CARNITINE is a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of fat. Acetyl-L-Carnitine is the more bio available form and it functions as a transporter of fatty acids to the mitochondria which is the metabolic furnace of the cell. We have chosen Acetyl-L-Carnitine instead of L-Carnitine to help the mitochondria deal with the incoming “onslaught” of excess fat. By preserving mitochondrial functions, overall health and energy levels are maintained during dieting. Another benefit of Acetyl-L-Carnitine is that it crosses the brain barrier where it acts as a powerful antioxidant and increases blood circulation to support a healthy memory. It also helps sperm cells move more effectively which then leads to improved fertility. L-ARGININE is an amino acid that has numerous functions in the body. We favor L-Arginine because it helps the urea cycle by helping the body get rid of ammonia, an important parameter to follow during the dieting. L-Arginine also makes nitric oxide (NO), a compound in the body that relaxes blood vessels, improves circulation, and improves heart health and the immune system. Nitric Oxide has been called the miracle molecule and the discovery of its signaling properties earned a Nobel Prize in 1998. L-Arginine helps with conditions that improve when blood vessels are relaxed (called vasodilatation), such as atherosclerosis, erectile dysfunction, and intermittent claudication. It also helps make compounds in the body such as creatine. L-ORNITHINE is most commonly used in combination with L-Arginie, to enhance its effectiveness. L-Ornithine is also associated with the body’s production of human growth hormone. Human growth hormone is well known for its anabolic and fat-burning properties. L-Ornithine is one of a handful of amino acids that cause the pituitary gland to release more growth hormone. What this means for anti-aging enthusiasts and athletes is more muscle growth and retention, less body fat accrual and many other youthful benefits, including healthier skin, increased energy levels, improved brain function and elevated libido..
