HCG Diet Dangers

Before and After Man












One of the main criticisms of the original 500 calories per day hCG diet advocated and developed by Dr Simeons is the problem of starving the body from necessary nutrients when consuming too few calories. There are a number of articles on the web discussing hCG diet dangers. Web MD reports that starvation diets, also known as extreme caloric restricted diets can result in life-threatening consequences. Starving is very dangerous to your body and includes problems such as extreme fatigue, when the body's main fuel source is no longer achieved without adequate amounts of essential nutrients. Extreme fatigue can interfere with a person’s daily functions, resulting in body aches, mood swings, and insomnia. Gallstones can also form during extreme low-calorie dieting, reports Web MD since extreme low-calorie dieting raises cholesterol in the gallbladder and the body loses its ability to expel the bile correctly. By remaining on a highly restrictive diet for longer periods of time, obese women are at a higher risk of developing gallstones. There is also the potential for cardiovascular problems such as damage to the heart and brain, which could result in a heart attack, heart failure, or stroke. All can be life threatening.


However, according to Dr. Rao, medical director of the Weight Doctors hCG Diet & Weight Loss program, hCG diet dangers are often distorted. The Internet is a free wheeling resource of information, but does not always make accessible information about hCG diet dangers found in professional medical information or clinical guidelines intended for doctors and clinicians. Frequently, in depth information about hCG diet dangers is either lacking or requires a paid subscription available only to physicians.


People who are considering following an hCG diet and have questions often rely on their own primary care physicians. Unfortunately most doctors are not exposed to all clinical information or guidelines in existence, nor do they have time to educate themselves with every single protocol. Information regarding hCG diet dangers might be based upon programs using the 1950 version of the Dr. Simeon's HCG diet protocol that included a starvation diet, and not on the most up-to-date modified versions of either Dr. Simeons HCG diet plan from the 1950s or the 1970s Kevin Trudeau's version of the hCG diet plan. There are major differences among these hCG diets that need to be taken into consideration and it is not accurate to judge all hCG diets as equivalent.


Weight Doctors specialists and physicians have modified the older version of the original hCG diet protocol to one that is relevant in our modern age by applying lessons learned from numerous diet approaches, clinical information, and nutrition to create a basic protocol involving a relatively low calorie diet combined with the proper dosage of hCG injections or hCG sublingual pills. Our superior hCG diet has evolved and our clients can now experience fast weight loss without the potential inherent hCG diet dangers found in the original Dr Simeons version.


A Google search result for “weight loss” shows dozens of hCG diet plans offered by doctors across the USA. Most are recommending five hundred calories per day diet program reports Julie Wright, CEO Diet Doc. It is not necessary to drop caloric intake so low. It can actually make it more difficult to lose weight by causing the person’s metabolism to shut down and to cause nutritional deficiencies. The consumption of 500 calories per day over an extended time is where concerns about hCG diet dangers come into play, reports Dr. Rao.


hCG diet dangers also include the concern about the quality of the actual hormone, hCG being sold, particularly with the proliferation of hCG diet programs. Unfortunately, products which appear to be similarly labeled as hCG, can be very different in both their effect and their safety. hCG has been used for weight loss since the 1950s. Unfortunately, the reported effectiveness results from homeopathic hCG drops and prescription hCG have often been mixed and combined in the same data from critics without any differentiation. Although the sellers of homeopathic hCG drops often state that they are made in FDA approved laboratories, it doesn’t mean they contain hCG, or that the FDA approves the preparation itself. The actual amount of hCG found in most homeopathic hCG diet drops is negligible.


Weight Doctors uses only prescription hCG which is available in both injections and sublingual tablets. Weigh Doctors’ modernized hCG diet allows for dieters to stay on the program longer without any metabolic slowdown and minimal hormonal sensitization. All clients must first consult with our licensed doctors who are specially trained to individualize the hCG diet plan according the health history of each patient as well as prescribe hCG. Weigh Doctors provides unlimited clinical support and is a doctor-supervised modern day version of the hCG diet without worrying about the hCG diet dangers associated with the original Dr Simeons diet protocol.
