HCG Diet Health

What can the HCG diet do for your health?

HCG Diet Can Help Obesity

With obesity rates increasing at an alarming rate, the economic consequences can be scary. In 2008, it is estimated that $147 billion was spent on medical care costs in the United States alone.  This does not include the morbidity costs, which include decreased productivity, absenteeism, bed days or restricted activity.


Overweight is defined as an adult with a BMI between 25 and 29.9. Obese is defined as an adult who has a BMI over 30. BMI (body mass index) is proxy for human body fat based on weight and height.


Some negative side effects of obesity can be, but are not limited to, the following:


  • Coronary Heart Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Cancer
  • Hypertension
  • Stroke
  • Sleep Apnea & Respiratory Problems
  • Arthritis
  • Gynecological Problems


How Can the HCG Diet Help with Obesity?

The HCG diet has been around for over 50 years with no proven long-term or short-term negative side effects. It was originally published for morbidly obese patients, but can be used by anyone who has a BMI over 20. While on the HCG diet, you will take HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) accompanied by a very low calorie diet.  With the Your HCG drops, you will take 6 drops 6 times per day. During the low calorie phase, you will consume lean proteins, fresh fruit and veggies. During the HCG diet you train your body to crave healthy foods, while avoiding sugars and starches. While on the HCG diet, your body will start to use your abnormal fat as fuel.  Your abnormal fat is defined as the fat in your arms, legs, back, etc. It’s the fat that your body does not need to survive. Most women will lose on average .5lb – 1lb per day and men will lose 1lb – 2lbs per day. As always, consult your physician before starting the HCG diet or any weight loss program.

    How can you tell if this is the same product that you can get from the doctor? All the sites say the same thing.

    BJ, I have a good friend that did go to a medical doc to get hers. We compared the ingredients & they are the same. Her doc is actually charging the same price. I was so skeptical too. I have another friend who used the drops from this site & she also achieved her goals. I have ordered mine & will start next week.:) Best wishes!

      HI Kip – We are not familiar with Total Health Chiropractic. Maybe check locally to see if anyone has posted any reviews on Google or Yelp.
