The HCG Diet

HCG diet, HCG weight reduction program, OmahaThe use of HCG in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the late British Physician, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. He first published a report on the topic in 1954, while practicing in Rome, Italy. He devoted years to researching various patients suffering from obesity. During this time, he noticed several important factors including the lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet. For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with HCG.

What Is HCG?

HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone produced by the placenta during pregnancy. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions. Generally, the HCG used in the diet protocols, is synthetic.

How Much Weight Reduction Can I Expect On The HCG Diet?

Most HCG dieters report 1 to 2 lbs a day reduction. At the very least, .5 pound a day, and at the most, 3+ lbs a day. 1 lb is generally lost in the first day. Fiber intake is extremely important, as is water intake. HCG studies have shown that weight reduction comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. It does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals, essential to maintain good health. For this reason, HCG dieters maintain good health. For this reason, HCG dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.

What Does The FDA Say About HCG?

The FDA states that “HCG has not been demonstrated to be an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of obesity and does not increase fat reduction beyond that resulting from caloric restriction.” In properly conducted studies, people incorporating HCG in their weight reduction program lost significantly more weight than those that did not. Moreover, these same people lost the weight, had no hunger and lost dramatically more inches than their counterparts.

“Both my husband and I have battled with our weight since childhood. After researching the HCG program, we decided to give it a try. I was not a big fan of needles but I overcame my fear real quick when 6 lbs came off in the first week! We were surprised at how we could feel fully satisfied by eating such a small amount of food, and yet we were. My husband is down 32 lbs and I am down 23 lbs! Our weight reduction continued after the program due to our new eating habits and lifestyle changes. I wish I would have known about HCG years ago.”

Findings May Reduce Need for Opioid Analgesics

In research presented last week at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Pain Medicine, PAINWeek faculty member Forest Tennant, MD, DrPH, reported results of a small study indicating the efficacy of combining two hormones to treat chronic pain. Released naturally during pregnancy and childbirth, the two hormones worked similarly when administered simultaneously to patients with intractable pain. The study reported that 7 of 9 patients reported a 30 percent to 40 percent decrease in pain after taking doses of oxytocin and human chorionic gonadotropin. These patients also reported improvement in the intensity of pain flare-ups and longer time between flares. In addition, the level of opioid painkillers needed declined by 30 percent to 40 percent. Side effects from the therapy were remarkably few, probably because the hormones are natural, bio-identical compounds. Dr. Tennant stated that the next step is more research to determine whether the hormones could be an alternative treatment for chronic pain. Read a news story about the study here.
