Is it important to do the HCG diet under a doctor's supervision?
Yes! Unfortunately, the weight loss industry has seen a lot of HCG fraud in recent years. People have been misinformed about the HCG diet and as a result, their health was put at risk because they were using a product that was ineffective, too strong, too weak, etc.
Doing the HCG diet under a doctor's supervision ensures that your health remains the top priority and that you won't be given something that is either not effective or too strong for your body. Here are a couple of things to look out for when looking at HCG online.
How to Find an HCG Doctor
Here are some tips to help you find the right provider for HCG:
- Check your local better business bureau to see if the place you want to go to for treatment has good reviews and no complaints. Always look for an A rating!
- Don't be fooled. Homeopathic HCG drops are not real and do not contain medical grade HCG. If you test them yourself with a pregnancy test, it will be negative for HCG. Don't buy them and don't subject your body to unhealthy weight loss. Our physicians have trained in Homeopathy and do not recommend it.
- Make sure the HCG comes in small dose vials, either 5000 or 8000iu. This ensures potency and stability. HCG Vials of 10,000iu's or more aren't stable or as active after 4 weeks.
- Ensure that the HCG is made in the USA. Our HCG comes from a certified U.S. compounding pharmacy. Buying online or from a foreign country jeopardizes HCG potency and your safety. Many online pharmacies buy their HCG from other countries and resell it here in the U.S. The better business bureau has received thousands of complaints from these types of businesses.
- You should have guidance. Are you given ideas for how to eat the 500-700 calories? What protocol is the clinic following? Any meal plans, recipes, or calorie guides provided? What is the plan after the program? How are you going to keep the weight off? Are you provided with any materials/guidelines for this?
- Don't overpay thinking it equals quality. Paying a lot or a little for your program doesn't ensure its quality, service or support. Make sure you get the support you need -- this is key!

HCG does not cure or eradicate obesity and unfortunately, the FDA still has not approved HCG for use as a weight loss aid. As with all alternative forms of treatment, the FDA has not been able to find enough substantial evidence through its research to indicate that HCG is effective as a weight loss aid. On the other hand, thousands of people have used HCG and have successfully lost large amounts of weight in a short amount of time.
