Is The HCG Diet Really A Hormone that Helps You Lose Fat?by Henry Hound on January 31, 2011
Human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) is the “pregnancy” hormone that home pregnancy tests detect in early pregnancy. It rises during the first 14 weeks of pregnancy and then goes back to normal levels.
Its purpose? To provide nutrients to the embryo and fetus via the mother’s fat stores in the ab and hip region. Are you starting to see why it’s been purported as a weight loss aid? Dr. Simeons did, years ago (1950s) when he developed the HCG diet.
Can the HCG Diet help YOU rid your body of excess fat stores? Whether you receive HCG injections or try one of the homeopathic versions, BEWARE!
HCG… Another DANGEROUS Fad Diet? (Yup, you don’t want to miss this…)
Cons (Expensive! And is it worth it?)
|HCG will help your body sustain itself on a 500-calorie a day diet and lose fat.||Erm… 500 calories a day? Holy starvation diet!|
|HCG is perfectly natural (not harmful to pregnant women, right?) and has no side effects.||Really? What about a life-threatening condition that can develop from HCG injections?? Keep reading!|
|HCG is proven to cause weight loss.||In a placebo study, both the placebo group and HCG group had similar results and hunger pangs throughout. The FDA does not approve of HCG for weight loss.|
|Nonprescription homeopathic HCG drops will help you achieve the same results without the side effects.||Most homeopathic stuff is relatively safe… AND ineffective. Don’t waste your money!|
Is it Worth Your Life??
First of all, 500 calories is not enough to sustain health and regardless of Dr. Simeons claims, you are still at risk of nutritional deficiencies. Secondly, it is not approved as a weight loss aid by any credible study. Quite the contrary my friends… (the placebo study mentioned above).
But MOST IMPORTANTLY:
- HCG injections can cause birth defects.
- HCG injections can cause a life-threatening condition called “ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome” in women, which can lead to ectopic pregnancy, ruptured fallopian tubes and even death.
- HCG injections, like any hormonal therapy (i.e. birth control) can increase your risk of blood clots, stroke and certain types of cancer.
- HCG injections are approved of for fertility treatments, so you may increase your chances of becoming pregnant, BUT it may also cause birth defects.
Homeopathic HCG drops you say? There are a myriad of brands out there, but none of them are proven effective. Homeopathic tonics are watered down versions of the real deal and are rarely effective.

Great download! I am a real skeptic – especially with downloads, but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by your write-up. It makes sense! A friend recommended Sensa and after reading your site, I am (once again) too skeptical to try.”
