HCG Diet Scam Rumor

HCG Diet Scam

The HCG diet has been around for over 50 years. It was created by Dr. Simeons in the 1950s. Over the years he has received criticism regarding the hCG diet and rumors of a HCG diet scam. Most of this criticism comes from skeptics of the diet. Most of these skeptics have not read his HCG diet protocol, and they do not fully understand how the delicate process works.

Someone interested in the HCG diet has to be careful, as there are a lot of HCG diet scams out there. Many companies do not follow Dr. Simeons HCG diet protocol and have what they say is a “one thousand” calorie diet which is not the correct VLCD that Dr. Simeons mentions in his HCG protocol.


HCG Diet Scam: Quality

Here at Your HCG, our HCG drops is made specifically for us and us alone in Denver Colorado in a FDA approved facility. Our product only contains two ingredients; HCG and 16% alcohol.  This ensures you are getting the highest quality HCG diet on the market.  There are companies out there that purchase their HCG over seas and just slap their label on it. In these cases you do not know the quality and purity of the HCG or if in fact it contains the HCG hormone at all. We are also registered with the Pharmicopia and have a “Good Manufacturing Stamp”.


The most common question we get is ‘how can I survive off 500 calories? Isn’t that unhealthy?’ The answer is quite simple. With the HCG diet protocol, your body doesn’t just exist on 500 calories. The HCG forces your body to unlock the fat stored in the mid-section (hips, belly, bottom and thighs) as well as the upper arms. Your body then consumes between 1500 and 4000 calories from the stored fat being released into your body IN ADDITION TO the 500 calories that are being eaten. What would make this diet unhealthy is getting a poor quality product that may contain “fillers” such as: B-Vitamins, Taurine, L-Carnitine, Amino Acids and Ginseng among other additives. You also want to keep an eye out for “Hormone Free” HCG, because this does not contain actual HCG and it’s the hormone itself that makes it safe.

Don’t Risk Being Apart of a HCG Diet Scam

Your HCG receives a lot of questions asking whether or not the HCG diet is safe. Yes it is! This HCG diet isn’t only for morbidly obese customers, but even if you only have 5lbs to lose you can start the HCG diet. The only requirements are that you are over 18 years old and have a BMI over 20. Because HCG is a natural hormone, it does not interact with any medications or birth control. However, we always recommend you consult your physician before starting any new diet program. Your doctor will know what’s best for you. The diet has been around over 50 years, with no proven negative long term or short term side effects. If your doctor has not heard of the HCG diet, take them a copy of Pounds and Inches, and their opinion will change.  Hopefully this eliminates the risk of you being taken advantage of in a HCG diet scam.

    My Mother’s husband went on this diet this past summer and lost around 60lbs so I know it works. My husband and I plan on starting this diet to lose some weight and its the only one we believe because we’ve actually seen it.

    Also, my Mother’s husband has diabetes and it was recommended and approved by his doctor, but definately check with our own doctor before starting.
