Lose Weight (Definition)

Many people resolve to lose weight in the New Year for different reasons. For those who are overweight or obese, there are many health benefits to losing weight. It can help decrease your chances of developing diseases including diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, osteoarthritis, and even certain types of cancer. Low-calorie diets combined with increased physical activity are thought to be most effective long term. The healthiest weight loss regimen, therefore, is one that consists of making lifestyle changes that incorporate a balanced diet ...Read more

Can this new hCG diet really help you lose weight?

Can this new hCG diet really help you lose weight?

Yes: You must follow the diet originally created by dr. Simeon. If you are getting hungry than you are not on real HCG or the proper dose. The only way to do this diet is under supervision of a qualified physician and strict adherence to the original 500 calorie diet. When done the right way, you will not be hungry. The wrong nuts have high fat content which is counter to the diet. ...Read more

What is the best brand or quality of hCG liquid drops to lose weight?

What is the best brand or quality of hCG liquid drops to lose weight?

No one knows: First of all, no one knows for sure if HCG really helps with weight loss. Those following the "hcg diet" only eat 500 calories a day & you will lose weight on that diet whether you take HCG or not. Many who advise that diet say the shots work best. As for the liquids, I know of no objective research showing one brand is better than another so I have no way of giving a good answer to your question. ...Read more

Go see your doctor: Despite what ads & marketing suggest, there's no proof that HCG causes weight loss. In fact, fda frowns upon sales of homeopathic HCG products for this purpose (http://goo. Gl/w863r). Talk to your doc about your wt concerns since oral steroids can cause weight gain while inhaled steroids are less likely to do so. But don't forget that you need to be able to breathe if you're going to lose weight! ...Read more

What is hcg? How Does hCG and vit b injections help one lose weight? Will vit b 12 capsules alone have similar affects on weight loss?

HCG: HCG is human Chorionic Gonadotropin which is secreted as the pregnancy hormone during pregnancy. How that causes "weight loss" instead of its natural state of "weight gain", I could not tell you. ...Read more

How safe is it to take the oral homeopathic hCG drops to lose weight.  Everyone seems to be losing a lot on it. My friend joined "shape reclaimed".

Not recommended: Homeopathic HCG was taken off the market in december 2011. The fda and ftc issued warning letters to multiple companies selling these products for making unsubstantiated claims. http://tinyurl.com/mqklddh homeopathic HCG differs from products given by injection, which are still on the market. Besides the daily injections, a 500 calorie diet is also required. The HCG supposedly prevents hunger. ...Read more

I'm starting hCG due to low t will I gain muscle and lose weight? What are the cosmetic benifits?

I'm starting hCG due to low t will I gain muscle and lose weight? What are the cosmetic benifits?

None really: Hcg is not known for its cosmetic results for the face. You don't want to lose the structural fat that supports the features of the face, by extreme weight loss. It can't be replaced, except by fillers temporarily. Make sure you have this discussion with your doctor before using it, so you don't replace one problem for another. Bio identical hormones should also be discussed if you're a candidate. ...Read more

Heavy bleeding after taking hcg for 23 days in efforts to lose weight Is bleeding normal after ending program?

Heavy bleeding after taking hcg for 23 days in efforts to lose weight Is bleeding normal after ending program?

No.: The HCG diet has never actually been proven to be beneficial (anyone will lose weight on 800 cal diet!) and as an endocrinologist I do not believe in it even if it helps weight loss. It is very similar to a hormone called LH and causes changes in progesterone and estrogen. Bleeding after can happen if there was a thickened endometrial lining. Get pregnancy test if possible and see your Gyn. ...Read more

Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Does the human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) hormone work to lose weight?

Actually, no.: This probably would not work to lose weight. It goes up in the beginning of pregnancy, peaks and falls slightly by term. When it goes up, the mother increases in weight and the baby also grows, so it is unlikely that this would result in or enhance weight loss. As of december 6, 2011, the fda has prohibited the sale of "homeopathic" and otc HCG diet products and declared them illegal. ...Read more

I'm currently on lamictal (25mg, titrating over 2 months to 100). Would it be safe to take homeopathic hCG with this? Am also on dextroamphetamine and methylphenidate and just can't lose weight!

Homeopathic HCG: Homeopathic HCG won't interact with Lamictal or your other medicines, but it's questionable whether it will help you any. In fact, in 2011 the fda & ftc removed these products from the market because of making deceptive claims in their ads. They are now illegal. http://tinyurl.com/85ap9ym this is not the case with traditional homeopathic remedies which have been in use for 200+ years. ...Read more

Do u sugest me to use hCG diet drops, because am overweight, and I want to lose weight fast in may be 1mnth, am 88kg and I want to reduce almost 30kgs.

Do u sugest me to use hCG diet drops, because am overweight, and I want to lose weight fast in may be 1mnth, am 88kg and I want to reduce almost 30kgs.

Lose weight fast: Well, the goal should be to lose weight in a healthy way. Losing weight rapidly with a diet or pill is a setup for failure, or the yo-yo effect (when you stop the diet you regain the weight back plus more). Eat healthy (cutting back on carbs and sugar) and do cardiovascular exercise (not walking but running, cycling, swimming, elliptical, zumba, etc). You can still lose weight quickly doing this. ...Read more

HCG was 155 in 2 days jumped to 462. If HCG is still rising normally is an ectopic still possible? Past history of 1 ectopic 4 miscarriages.

HCG was 155 in 2 days jumped to 462. If HCG is still rising normally is an ectopic still possible? Past history of 1 ectopic 4 miscarriages.

Yes: Because of your previous history of ectopic pregnancy, you have a higher risk for a repeat ectopic. The increased HCG is encouraging for an intrauterine pregnancy, but you are not out of the woods for ectopic pregnancy unless and until a gestational sac is seen inside the uterus by ultrasound. ...Read more

What are the side effects of hCG weight lose treatment in long and short term?

What are the side effects of hCG weight lose treatment in long and short term?

Doesn't sound safe: The HCG diet has a person eating 500 calories a day for more than a month. That's just one big slice of pizza a day. A 4-month old baby eats 500 calories a day. Anybody on 500 calories a day is on a starvation diet and will lose weight. It doesn't sound safe. Extremely low calorie diets don't work because the weight comes back when one starts eating again. Long-term lifestyle changes are needed. ...Read more

See Dr., avoid HCG: Helpful weight loss diets have natural foods that take time to chew but contain few calories. Examples include carrots, celery, and iceberg lettuce (little/no salad dressing). When shopping for fruits, buy small ones no bigger than a tennis ball, because fruits have sugar. Drinks without calories include water and green tea. A calorie is a calorie, but surely avoid sugar & simple starch calories. ...Read more

U R on wrong diet: The HCG diet was originally developed by a.T.W. Simeons M.D. During the 1940s -1950's. It has been used all over the world for over 50 years. This method is extremely safe & effective when used under the care of an experienced & trained md. Apparently HCG has an effect on your hypothalamus, increasing adiponectin levels & reducing leptin resistance. The method must be followed strictly to work. ...Read more

What causes late rising HCG levels? I mean I was 6 weeks pregnant but hCG was 148 then it still going doubling normally every 48 hours.but only sac

Early: An HCG of 148 is very early. As long as it is rising like you describe, it's a good sign. You don't expect to see a sac until the HCG reaches 1500 to 2000, and you won't see an embryo for at least another 1-2 weeks, and then just a small blip on the screen. If you are 6 weeks, though, you would expect to see something. Perhaps you are not as far along as you think. ...Read more

How many calories can I eat and still lose weight?

How many calories can I eat and still lose weight?

It depends: Focusing on calories is not the only requirement for weight loss. Foods have other characteristics that contribute to weight gain. Processed foods cause more weight gain than non-processed foods even when calories are equivalent because they are stored as glycogen which contains more water. This may explain the extra weight gain after a "rich" meal. ...Read more
