The hCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) in conjunction with hCG. In addition to the loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the hCG protocol is its ability to help modify the dieter’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term, weightloss. Injections are given a minimum of 23 days to a maximum of 45 days per round. A dieter can do as many rounds as needed to reach his or her weight loss goals. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is best known as a pregnancy hormone that is produced by the embryo soon after conception. HCG is the hormone that is used to test for pregnancy. This hormone evolved to direct the bodies of pregnant women to use their own fat as a source of calories for the developing fetus.

When produced during pregnancy, HCG is meant to help the corpus luteum remain intact. The corpus luteum, which is part of the ovary, is integral in maintaining production of the progesterone that is an important component of human pregnancy. In addition to preventing the disintegration of the corpus luteum, researchers believe that HCG provides pregnant women with extra immunity during pregnancy.
The high levels of HCG that are produced during pregnancy have no negative effects on the pregnant woman’s body. In fact, doctors have used HCG for many years in order to help women who are experiencing hormonal issues or fertility problems.

More recently, however, researchers have found that HCG can actually help the body burn fat and can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low calorie diet and a moderate exercise routine. This discovery confirmed that patients who used HCG plus a 500-calorie per day diet to direct the bodies of overweight people to burn fat instead of muscle. Although HCG is associated with pregnancy, it can safely be used by both men and women that are looking to get their weight under control.

Most of the information that is circulating on the internet fails to mention what you can do to get optimum results from an HCG Weight Loss Program. Getting and taking HCG for weight loss is just the beginning, and even that first step is full of pitfalls if you don’t know what you are doing. For that reason, Julie Benzie has created and incorporated into Ageless Beauty’s HCG weightloss program the following components for ensuring maximum healthy weight loss:

  • 100% Pure HCG tested and purified from a compounding pharmacy in the United States
  • Bi-weekly Lipo Vite injections-that boost nutrient absorption, (a must if you are consuming only 500 calories per day), increase metabolism, increase fat burning activity and increase energy levels.
  • Complete directions and recipes for getting the results you want.
  • Consultations and Q&A with professionals to guide you from beginning to end, step by step, to your successful and long-term weight loss.

Commonly Asked Questions about hCG weightloss:

What is hCG? hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions.

How does this work? By injecting the hCG, the dieter is able to control hunger, his or her cravings and thus change his or her relationship with food Our patients claim hCG helps to burn the fat that is stored around the hips, thighs, belly and upper arms. With hCG excess fat disappears even faster and problem areas seem to be dealt with more efficiently.

Where do I get HCG? hCG is a natural substance that is produced in the human body during pregnancy. Pharmaceutical companies extract this substance from the urine of pregnant women. It is purified and made into pharmaceutical grade hCG. Although it is a natural substance, it is classified as a drug and available by prescription only. You must get hCG from a Medical Professional with a prescription. The FDA has not approved hCG to be used in weight loss treatment but it is not illegal. According to the FDA, it is in fact, legal for Medical Professionals in America to prescribe medications for purposes that are not approved by the FDA.

HCG Weight Loss Diet in Mountain Home and Boise, IdahoIs it safe? How effective is it? Because hCG is naturally created , the weight loss program is very safe. hCG has been used effectively for over 50 years for safe, rapid weight loss. It is also very effective with participants losing an average of 20-40 pounds per month. hCG dieters report a loss of .5 -1 lb a day. Every patient is different and results are not guaranteed. Factors that increase weight loss include eating organically and drinking at least 2 -4 liters of water a day.

What to expect? Dieters can expect not only a safe, rapid weight loss program, but a changed relationship with food. Because the dieter’s relationship with food is changed, there are no long term diet restrictions, and dieters can expect a maintained loss of weight, as well as a loss of the cravings for bad food that caused the weight increase.

What if I just did the diet without the hCG injections? If you just do the diet without the hCG injections, you will, in fact lose weight. The problem is, during the diet you will be losing muscle and structural fat; you will not lose any of the abnormal fat deposits in the problem areas. Your body will not be reshaped and re-sculpted. When you finish the diet your metabolism will be lower than before and your hunger higher than before. You will not have achieved the results you want.

What does the FDA say about hCG? They state that HCG has no known affect on fat mobilization, reducing appetite or sense of hunger, or body fat distribution. They further state, HCG has not been demonstrated to be an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of obesity and does not increase fat losses beyond that resulting from caloric restriction.. They even say specifically that, hCG should never be used in the treatment of obesity because serious problems can occur. These statements are blatantly and flagrantly false. There is absolutely no documentation or substantiations backing up and proving that these negative statements are true. Dr. Simeons was very clear that if the protocol was not followed exactly as described, the results would not be achieved. The truth is that in all properly conducted studies, people on the diet with HCG have, in fact, lost both weight and inches. These dieters have seen a dramatic reshaping and re-sculpting of their bodies. They have lost fat in the problem areas.

My doctor says this won’t work and is not safe. If your doctor has not personally treated patients using the Simeons weight loss cure protocol, exactly and precisely as instructed, how would he/she know whether the protocol was effective and safe? That is the benefit of coming to Ageless Beauty. We have successfully treated several patients using this protocol with great success. Our clinic understands the issues associated with this protocol and will be there every step of the way to help you succeed in your weight loss quest.

Is it true that 500 calories a day is too low to be safe? No. Research now confirms that eating very low calorie diets actually increase overall health, have anti-aging effects, and increase lifespan. This was reported recently in The New York Times. Most importantly, however, is when you are doing the diet combined with the hCG injections, Dr. Simeons reports that your body is being flooded with over 2,000 calories of nutrition from the releasing of the abnormal fat reserves. This is one of the reasons that during the diet, consisting of the diet and hCG injections, you are not hungry and generally have an increase in energy levels.

Have any changes been made to the original Simeons weight loss cure protocol? Our diet is in fact, the original instructions as described in Simeon’s manuscript “Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity”. There are two exceptions. Simeons used 125 i.u.s of hCG. He suggested that taking larger amounts do not improve results, but rather have the opposite effect. Doctors in the 1970s and 1980s began dealing with patients who had many more issues and causes of abnormal hypothalamus activity than Simeons dealt with. Therefore, after Simeon’s death in 1970, doctors began researching with slightly higher amounts of hCG. It was found that between 150 and 200 i.u.s were the optimal daily doses. It is still recommended that the dosage should never be more than 200 i.u’s.

Must I gorge for the first two days of the diet? Yes. Dr. Simeons states that a person will not be comfortable on the 500 calorie diet unless his normal fat reserves are reasonably well stocked. It is for this reason that in every case a person must eat to capacity the most fattening food they can get down for the first two days in Phase 2. It is a fundamental mistake to start the 500 calorie diet as soon as hCG injections are started as it seems to take about three injections before abnormal fat deposits begin to get released and circulate, thus becoming available to the body as fuel.

How do I measure the 100 grams of protein? Use a kitchen scale or postal scale. 100 grams equals about 3.6 ounces. Weigh the meat in its raw state.

Can I substitute smoked fish, pickled fish or deli meats? Absolutely not, nothing smoked, dried, or pickled. Never use deli meats. The meats must be of the leanest variety. If at all possible, buy organic as it will be free of all of the hormones, antibiotics and other animal drugs which slowdown or stop the fat burning process. Try to buy wild fish and not farm raised fish for the same reasons as above. Eating beef and veal that is not grass fed and 100% organic will slow down or stop the fat burning process.

Can I mix vegetables? No, with one exception. You can make a salad consisting of various organic lettuces, organic cabbage, organic spinach, organic celery, organic onions, organic cucumbers, organic radishes, and organic tomatoes. Season with organic raw apple cider vinegar, or the juice of one-half an organic lemon. Add sea salt, black pepper, crushed garlic, in any amounts of dried or fresh organic herbs.

Can I change some of the food items on the diet? No, you must be very strict in following the diet exactly if you want to achieve results. Simeons was very particular in his research about how even the very smallest change or variation would slow down or stop the fat burning process completely. He said that the diet used in conjunction with the hCG injections must not exceed 500 calories per day. He also stated that the way these calories are made up is of the utmost importance. He pointed out that if a patient dropped the apple and had a little more protein he would not be getting any more calories, but he would not lose weight. There are a number of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, which have the same or even lower caloric values than those listed as permissible. However, when substitutions are made Dr. Simeons found that they interfere with the regular loss of weight under hCG. This is due to the nature of their chemical compositions.

Can I eat lamb, pork, duck, while on the 500 calorie diet? No!

Will I be hungry during this protocol? During Phase 2 you may have slight hunger between one and seven days. If you following the instructions to load up on calories the first two days, this will not be as noticeable. Each person is different but for the most part the hunger is slight.

Can I use artificial sweeteners while on this protocol? No. You should never use any artificial sweeteners. All artificial sweeteners, including NutraSweet and Splenda, should never be consumed. They increase depression, are physically, chemically addicting, and they make you fat.

Can I use MSG (monosodium glutamate)? No, you should never eat anything with MSG in it ever again as long as you live. It is a deadly, dangerous excitotoxin. It increases depression, increases appetite, and makes you fat.

While on the protocol can I use gum, mints, lozenges, or cough syrup? No!

If I am not hungry while doing the diet, do I still have to eat everything as described? Yes. Whether you are hungry or not, you must eat the lunch and dinner in their complete form. You cannot have one big meal per day. You may take the apple from either lunch or dinner and eat it at breakfast. You may also take the fruit from dinner and eat it for a mid-day snack. No other changes or substitutions are allowed as they slow or stop the fat burning process.

What if I cheat on the diet during the diet? If you do cheat for a meal or for one or two days in a row, all it means is that the weight loss process will stop for a few days or a temporary slight increase in weight may occur. Immediately start the diet again at the next meal and carry on. If you cheat on a meal every other day you are wasting your time.

What if I have low energy or hunger during the diet? Some patients may be dealing with insulin resistance or low blood sugar. It is suggested that you may drink Eleotin tea to help this. Also, make sure that you eat your apple mid morning. Low energy could also be caused by a hypoactive thyroid, candida yeast overgrowth, poor circulation, or parasites. If you feel any of this pertains to you or if you have a concern, call the clinic and the matter will be referred to our Medical Director, Julie Benzie. We have several suggestions that will ease all of those problems.

Can I eat salt? During all the phases salt may be consumed, however, always choose sea salt or Himalayan salt. However, using too much salt can result in retention of water, which will show up as increased weight on the scale.

The instructions in all the phases call for a large consumption of water and teas. Is this necessary? During all the phases you should drink a minimum of one-half gallon of water per day, up to a maximum of one gallon. It is important in the treatment of the obesity condition. The importance and benefits of adhering to the water cannot be overemphasized. It is absolutely vital in order for the protocol to work effectively.

Must I eliminate cosmetics, moisturizers, lotions, and creams during the diet? Yes. Dr. Simeons stated that most people find it hard to believe that the fats, oils, creams, and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed into the body and interfere with the weight reduction by hCG just as if those ingredients were eaten. This almost incredible sensitivity to even such very minor increases in nutritional and caloric intake is a peculiar feature of the hCG method. Simeons found that persons who habitually handle fats, such as workers in beauty parlors, masseuses, butchers, etc. never show a satisfactory loss of weight when using hCG unless they avoid all contact with the skin of such fats and various products. Many modern cosmetics contain hormones which interfere with endocrine regulations in the body and must be avoided.

What about abdominal exercises and aerobics? Aerobic exercise has many health benefits. In terms of resetting the body weight set point, walking one hour per day outside is much more effective. Aerobic exercise is extremely healthy and beneficial and should be engaged in by everyone at any level you desire.

Will I gain the weight back? If you go back to eating fast food, restaurant food, and food containing trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, highly refined food, artificial sweeteners, meat, poultry, and dairy with growth hormone and antibiotics etc. You will in fact mess up your hypothalamus again and regain the weight.

If the weight comes back can I do this protocol again? Yes. If you lose a substantial amount of weight and a year later find you have gained some weight back, do the protocol as often as you desire. Many people will decide to do the protocol once a year for a three week period to lose any amount of weight gained just to keep on top of it.

What if the food label says all natural? Today, the phrase .all natural. means absolutely nothing! You must read the ingredient list on the food. Look for 100% organic whenever is possible.

What if I show no weight loss for four days in a row? Dr. Simeons discussed at length daily weight fluctuations or reaching weight plateaus. He explained that at times there may be no drop of weight at all for two or three days, which is then followed by a sudden large drop which reestablishes the normal daily average of about one pound per day during Phase 2. Weight fluctuations occur more so in women than i8n men. If a person weighs themselves and notices that the weight stays the same for four days in a row, the patient is told that after weighing on the fourth morning, to only eat six organic apples for the day. The patient is told to drink nothing except a small amount of water, just enough to quench their thirst when needed. Two cups of corn silk tea should be consumed. The next morning there should be a drop in weight. If not, do not be concerned. It is important to note that because this protocol is synthesizing and releasing so such abnormal fat, the body may retain excessive water in order to rid the system of this excess released fat and accompanying toxins. This, at times, results in no apparent weight loss on the scale, however, you must know that the body is still being reshaped, and massive fat loss is still occurring.

Can I take higher doses of hCG? Dr. Simeons said never go above 200 i.u.(s) of hCG a day.

Can I stay on Phase 2 longer than six weeks? Dr. Simeons found that the body has a tendency to create immunity to hCG. Therefore, staying on the diet for longer than a total of 42 injections is not advised. You must take at least a 4 week break before you start the injections and protocol of the diet again. This is important, as once your body starts developing immunity to hCG, you will no longer be burning abnormal fat reserves, but rather start burning structural fat and muscle. You will know when the immunity sets in as you will be unnaturally hungry again and the 500 calorie diet will not be enough to sustain you alone.

How much does it cost? hCG weight loss varies in cost depending upon the person being treated.

Is it covered by insurance? To keep costs low,we do not bill or accept insurance. Please contact your insurance regarding coverage or reimbursement to you.
