I have heard about the hCG diet. Is it safe?

I have heard about the hCG diet. Is it safe?

Yes but...: Hcg is not likely going to cause any harm but weight loss is due to the severe caloric restriction. In men with low testosterone and normal testes, it may work better because the HCG will increase the testosterone level. In women, HCG may increase progesterone. Higher Progesterone may lead to less anxiety and therefore less eating. Overall, smart eating plus increased activity is a better choice. ...Read more

Can the hCG diet help my hormone imbalances?

Focus on food > fads: After reviewing the scant data from the present HCG diet and the one in the 70s, I still believe a reproductive endocrinologist can comment best on effects of hcg. Wrt being on the diet when ttc or pregnant, I say avoid lo-cal. There are few times in life when diet matters more. The goal is to have the healthiest body for the healthiest baby. Eating 3 toxin-free balanced meals with snacks is best. ...Read more

Can taking hCG diet drops affect fertility at all?

Drops worthless: Drops are worthless. You need a qualified physician to administer correctly the injection HCG and the original 500 calorie diet with strict adherence. The diet only works on abnormal fat and once you rid yourself of abnormal fat you will not lose any more weight on the HCG diet. Weightloss will actually improve fertility. ...Read more

Drs I wana ask about hCG diet plan. Is it effective anf how can I start this plan?

Drs I wana ask about hCG diet plan. Is it effective anf how can I start this plan?

No; save your money: 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

Does the hCG diet (using injections) effect the beta hCG in a quantatative blood test?

Beta HCG: A very good question. The pills and injections given in the "hcg diet" will cause blood and urine levels of bhcg to rise. However, two measurements, a week or more apart, should differentiate between pregnancy (where the levels will rise predictably) and diet drugs, assuming you are taking a constant dose for the diet treatments. ...Read more

Info abou the hCG diet, and after yoy reach your goal weight do u continue the drops and do you continue eating just 500 calories?

HCG weight loss: No one can survive really on a 500 calorie diet (at least not happily or for long). While on the HCG diet although you consume 500 calories per day, your body is able to derive the rest of it's caloric needs from its extensive fat reserves. Your body burns calories to breathe, for your heart to pump even for the act of eating itself. I would not advise any kind dieting if you have a normal bmi. ...Read more

If I only do the hCG diet for one month just to jump start things could this have any negative effect in my health short or long term?

HCG diet: I have seen patients have considerable side effects from the HCG oral drops diet. It is not enough nutrients and calories to be healthy. Also the diet may make you lose weight and often muscle mass and strength, but it does not teach you how to eat healthy or incorporate healthy choices to maintain weight loss? ...Read more

If you're pregnant and didn't know it till after the first months and into the 2nd and were on the hCG diet, could it affect the baby in any way?

Pregnancy: The HCG diet is a popular diet now. However, it is the same hormone that your body produces when you are pregnant so it can cause a false positive pregnancy test. Still, if you are pregnant, the HCG should not cause any problems with the pregnancy and won't cause you to miscarry. ...Read more

Do u sugest me to use hCG diet drops, because am overweight, and I want to loose 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
