The use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) combined with a low calorie diet has become a major breakthrough in losing excess weight and stubborn body fat.
At transformyou in Phoenix, the HCG Diet is a physician-supervised weight loss program. It is completely safe and has been developed to help people not only lose weight initially, but also to keep it off.
What is HCG?
HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone. In pregnant women, it is produced in the early stages of pregnancy to control a woman’s metabolic function. Research is now suggesting that it similarly increases the metabolism and promotes lipolytic, or fat burning activity for non-pregnant women and men.
The use of HCG as a diet aid was first discussed in a report Dr. A.T.W. Simeons published in 1954. His report included some interesting findings, such as:
- Patients using HCG could reduce their caloric intake without experiencing irritability, hunger pains, headaches, or weakness.
- HCG injections did more than just help his patients lose weight: it helped to NATURALLY reshape his patients’ bodies.
- This happened even if they did not engage in exercise while on the diet.
Dr. Simeons concluded that this was because patients lost the most weight from fat tissue accumulations. His patients weren’t just losing weight, but fat -- and a particular kind of fat!
Note: It's crucial that patients follow the HCG diet under doctor supervision.
The HCG Diet isn't Just Another Diet
If you’ve tried dieting, perhaps diet after diet, and found that the weight comes back, it’s because diets can’t rid us of the one kind of fat that most needs to be eliminated.
Most people generally think of fat as just that: “fat.” But there are three distinct kinds of fat; two of which we need, and one we don’t. Here's a breakdown:
- Structural fat: Cushions our organs. This is healthy and essential.
- Subcutaneous fat: Gives us a reserve of energy, fueling the body between meals. This is also healthy and essential.
- Visceral fat: The kind that ruins our appearance and is totally unhealthy. This unhealthy, unwanted fat is also almost impossible to lose because it is only burned only in times of starvation and pregnancy.
Adding HCG makes the body burn this stored fat for energy, HCG does not deplete the two ‘healthy’ fats – the subcutaneous and structural fat.
Most HCG weight-loss participants notice a loss in girth (inches) and weight. However, when properly supervised, they also can achieve an overall improved body shape during and after treatment. Patients who struggle with fat in the stomach, buttocks and hips are able to notice a reshaping of their body’s contours in these areas. HCG appears to reset the hypothalamus gland, along with areas of the brain that regulate a variety of hormones, blood sugar metabolism, blood pressure, and other key body functions.
HCG can help metabolize the stored body fat and releases about 1500 - 2000 calories into the bloodstream. A low calorie per day diet can be followed without experiencing the normal fatigue, weakness or hunger one would normally find from limiting one’s calories.

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.
