What Is hCG?

Before and After Woman













When it comes to weight loss, there's no shortage of advice whether it is via the magazine rack at the newspaper stand, at the local bookstore, or online. An amazing breakthrough in weight loss and the fight against obesity is the use of hCG in conjunction with a low calorie per day diet. HCG is a naturally occurring hormone produced during pregnancy. When hCG is injected or ingested via a sublingual pill, it targets abnormal fat deposits providing fuel for the body to burn. At the same time, hCG creates a disconnect in the brain allowing clients to feel fantastic rather than hungry as they follow the accompanying diet. Losing weight has never been easier. Surprisingly, the use of hCG for weight loss has actually been available since the 1950s.

What makes the WeightDoctors hCG weight loss program exceptional is their modernization of the 1950s hCG diet by taking the controversial original protocol and transforming it into the healthiest way to get amazing weight loss results.

Each person can expect to receive a comprehensive, personalized weight loss plan by an experienced weight loss phyisican. Weight loss physicians are not the same as a primary care doctor or (especially) a bariatric or lap band surgeon. Weight loss doctors have additional training in how the body reacts to losing weight and keeping it off. Weight loss is a medical condition requiring the experience of a doctor who understands the biochemistry of weight gain and loss.


The original hCG diet was developed in the 1950s by the British endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons. He presented his revolutionary findings to the public in his book Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity revealing an unconventional diet plan with extraordinary weight loss results. Dr Simeons discovered a natural way for people to achieve extreme weight loss results using HCG, or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone produced during pregnancy, which is made by the developing placenta after conception. During pregnancy, HCG helps the body to mobilize fat stored in adipose tissues (what we call body fat or fat deposits) and release its energy for other metabolic activities. In simpler words, this process stimulates the metabolism of the mother, allowing the mother’s body to use her own fat stores to provide nutrition to the gestating baby.

By recognizing the potential of this extraordinary hormone, British endocrinologist A.T.W. Simeons, in 1954, was able to harness the unique properties of hCG using it, when paired with a low calorie diet, to assist women and men to lose weight. Dr. Simeons hCG diet has continued to gain popularity over the years, due to its high success rate. With our cultural obsession with weight loss it is understandable why more people are using hCG with a low calorie diet to lose unwanted pounds. According to Dr. A.T.W Simeons’ 1972 seminal book, “Pounds and Inches” the combination of the use of small amount of HCG with a low-calorie diet can cause a person’s body to metabolize and use the abnormal fat deposits through a specific process. Touting hCG as a potent appetite suppressant, Dr. Simeons claimed the hormone, hCG, could eliminate fat in key trouble spots like the upper arms, stomach, thighs, and buttocks, while preserving muscle. Some would say that hCG is an amazing breakthrough in weight loss and the fight against obesity. Others consider the original extremely rigid, low, five hundred calorie a day diet to be highly controversial, maybe even dangerous if not under a doctor’s supervision. Detractors say the hormone isn't some miracle ingredient to weight loss and that the weight loss occurs due to the restrictive hCG diet. But believers insist that, thanks to hCG, they can remain on a low-calorie diet without hunger pangs, while losing all that unwanted fat.


There is a lot of confusion when it comes to the different forms of hCG due to the relative lack of reliable consumer information. HCG Injections, sublingual tablets, and homeopathic drops are the three ways in which hCG is available. The FDA recently sent warning letters to several companies selling the hCG diet drops for weight loss purposes due to the amount of false advertising involved in this sale of homeopathic hCG. Unfortunately, homeopathic drops and prescription hCG have often been mixed and / or combined in the data used by critics to demonize the use of hCG in weight loss plans. In fact, homeopathic drops and prescription hCG couldn’t be more different from one another. Only licensed doctors with valid DEA prescribing privileges can write a prescription for medications with actual hCG in them. Consequently any hCG purchased over the counter without a doctor’s consultation and prescription is a homeopathic dilution. And the reason over the counter homeopathic hCG preparations don’t require a doctors prescription is because there is negligible amounts of hCG in homeopathic hCG drops, homeopathic hCG tablets, or homeopathic hCG spray.


There are a number of doctors, spas/clinics and websites touting hCG weight loss treatment programs. What makes our program stand apart is we’ve taken Dr. Simeons 1950s hCG diet program, controversial in its original protocol, and modernized it into a healthy way to get amazing weight loss results today without any expensive and intrusive surgery.


The use of small amounts of hCG coupled with low-calorie diet helps your body to utilize unwanted fat. It is the goal of the physicians at WeightDoctors.net to ensure that you are losing fat mass and not muscle mass. The Weight Doctors weight loss program uses HCG along with a reduced caloric intake of 700-1000 calories per day to ensure patients are still receiving proper nutrition and maintaining muscle mass. In many other types of rapid weight loss programs, people tend to lose muscle tissue instead of just fat resulting in sagging skin, in addition to throwing the bodies nutrients out of sync. Weight Doctors offers support products that ensure maintaining muscle mass and nutritional balance. All patients who use our hCG diet plan, first consult with licensed doctors who are specially trained to individualize and prescribe hCG. Weight Doctors provides unlimited clinical support and is the only doctor supervised modern day version of the hCG diet.

You don't feel hungry since your body is turning these stored fat deposits into fuel!
