Avatar f tn Has anyone in here been on the hcg diet. I am really interested in doing it but am somewhat wary because the FDA has not approved it. Some doctors have used it for morbid obesity. Some days I feel like I am morbidly obese although I am 30+ pounds overweight, I know that is not like morbid but it feels bad enough to me. Anyone else feel like me??
Avatar n tn As to the claim that you can do this diet without the hcg, that is not true, either. My husband and I had been doing the diet for two weeks when we noticed that the hcg solution was starting to lose its potency. We started to feel hungrier and more miserable each day, until we decided to discard the old solution and prepare a fresh batch, resulting in quick relief from our hunger (like less than an hour).
Avatar n tn look in the hcg diet forum. read through the postings.
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
Avatar f tn So if you care about your health in the long run, I would say this is not the diet for you. If you do choose this diet, please do not do it without clinical supervision! I know how great the temptation is to lose the weight quick, but is it worth the risks I listed above? Here is a really easy to understand article of the hCG diet including how the treatments work: http://health.howstuffworks.com/health-illness/wellness/physical-fitness/weight-loss/hcg-diet.htm I hope that helps!
Avatar n tn There is a really good video log of one woman's Sublingual hCG usage on youtube. It seems to really be working for her. Just search for simeons when you go to the youtube site. I am currently doing the injections; day 11 of VLCD. I have only lost 4lbs but I have also lost 9.5 inches. 4 whole inches in my waist. I plan on switching to SL since I have seen the success others have with it once this round is through. It is amazing how much this program eliviates hunger as compared to most.
Avatar f tn Thanks Too Funny, my neice is the one who gave me Dr Hawes info. She did well on the program and told me about it. I have to say I was a little reluctant about giving myself the shots and I had some question that I was waiting for an answer, so I just started the shots yesterday and still have one more day of loading before I start the restrictive diet. I think I will do okay with it as long as I'm not to hungry.
Avatar n tn My clinical health provider thinks this will help boost my weight loss. I eat by the hcg diet, drink enough fluids ounces equal to half my current weight (water is best), exercise often by doing two miles of walking on machines (step climbing), and in the pool (jogging) which will keep pressure off of feet and legs.
921323 tn?1268679412 I think the HCG Diet is a bad idea for at least three reasons. 1) Supplementation with HCG has not been proven to be effective as compared to placebo. Multiple double-blind placebo controlled studies have not demonstrated a beneficial effect. Not much else to say about this. It just doesn’t work. Please note - I am not talking about the prolonged and severe calorie restriction that accompanies it. That works just fine. It just isn’t healthy. See #2.
Avatar f tn 500 Cal diet with HCG/Simeon Plan. This is my 7th day on the HCG/Simeon diet so I figured it would be a good time to compare them (since I made it 1 week on the non-HCG plan). I have felt very well the entire 7 days, no hunger pangs until the end of the day when I took no shot (yesterday). I am not miserable like I was on the diet w/out HCG. I have lost 5 lbs (net), even with the 2 loading days, and I'm pretty excited about how this is going.
1110049 tn?1409405744 i am 62 and lost my 60 pounds of fat on hcg diet. it was worth it for sure i did it through a weightloss clinic so i had constant support i have kept it off and i feel so much better - not to meniton that i am a size 4 instead of a 22. i had tried weight watcher several times - not that much of a loss.
Avatar f tn I agree that you shouldn't bother with the hcg, but I disagree with the "diet" listed above. You can't eat anything you want, except sugar and expect to lose weight, in a healthy manner. You have to look at the foods you're eating; they aren't all created equally....... hamburgers, french fries, pizza, etc are loaded with simple carbs (white flour, potatoes, etc) AND the type of fats that you don't need.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me the veggies they eat on the HCG diet and still lose weight?? Thank you so much!!
Avatar f tn //www.60in3.com/2008/08/25/the-hcg-diet-yet-another-fad-diet/ Aetna (*******), one of many insurance carriers, has a Clinical Policy Bulletin regarding Weight Reduction Medications and Programs posted that excludes Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) or vitamin injections for weight loss because it is considered experimental and investigational for weight loss. There is no magic pill or diet or plan to lose weight quickly and safely. To be fit and healthy you have to eat healthy and exercise.

It also supresses appetite (in some people) which is why it is typically used in conjunction with a very low calorie diet.
Avatar n tn hCG injections are PART of a comprehensive weight reduction program. hCG administration is just ONE aspect of the complete hCG +diet program. Unfortunately many Healthcare Professionals modified the original method based on their own assumptions on how the method operates. In some cases modifications were performed to the extent that they do not include any of the basic and fundamental postulates of the hCG protocol, resulting in UNWANTED or side-effects.
Avatar n tn I need help locating a center or doctor in ASHEVILLE NC who gives the hcg shots. I am 360lbs and I need help losing weight. I have tried lots of programs and I have failed. Someone please help me with some good information.
Avatar n tn I have been on the HCG Protocal for almost four weeks and have not achieved the expected results. I have been following the prescibed diet and HCG injection instructions to the letter. I live in Houston, Texas and have been working with a clinic in Colorado Springs. Is there a clinic in Houston that provides the HCG protocal. Perhaps support in my local area would achieve the desired results.
Avatar f tn Life is full of choices, and there's no one else in control of the decisions you make except yourself. You are what you eat. Your health is a result of your environment, which includes what you consume. Barb, I'm glad your program is working for you. Yet, there are many cups of tea to choose from. What works for one, like myself, may not work for another, like yourself, but it may for someone else.
Avatar n tn The program is a combination of HCG, medications, diet and exercise that anyone can do. Please give them a call it is worth you time I promise!!
Avatar n tn I am on day eight of the hcg diet and I still wake up in the morning with hunger pangs. I have followed the diet to the letter and have lost about 10 pounds, but I do experience hunger. Anyone know why? I went to workout with my trainer in the morning and after, I even threw up. If you have any insights, please let me know.
Avatar n tn It cost $300 for five weeks and B12 is added to the hcg injections. They give you a diet that provides more than 500 calories and you eat every two hours. Call them at ******* tell them Michelle sent you! Good luck with your weight loss goals...eating often works a lot better than starving yourself!
Avatar n tn Lipotropics can also detoxify amines (by products of protein metabolism) which is important for people on high protein diet.(Atkins diet) Other reasons doctors administer Lipotropics for; they bolster the thymus gland to carry out its anti-disease function by stimulating the production of antibodies, stimulating the growth of phagocytes, which surround and gobble up invading viruses and microbes and by recognizing and destroying foreign and abnormal tissue.
Avatar n tn It's my understanding that the low cal diet is what takes the weight off but the Releana or hcg injections is what makes the body use up the stores of fat which gives the inches lost.
Avatar n tn I haven't had any negative ones. The diet has been very easy for me. The HCG controls the appetite. I make 64 oz of herbal & green tea mix and drink that daily before 1 pm and then switch to water and drink as much as I can up to another 64 oz averaging between 80-120 oz per day. Buy a postal scale to weigh your food the food scales aren't accurate enough. The food you're allowed is very limited not only in amount but in selection. Don't do calorie matching and make other choices.
