  • An hCG injection is one piece of Dr. Albert T. Simeon's hCG weight loss program. The program consists of primarily a specific food and drink plan, with additional assistance provided by the fat break down properties of hCG injections.

    Function

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is produced naturally during pregnancy to break down body fat so that it can be used as fuel.

    Features

    The hCG injections are only available through a doctor's prescription. Dr. Simeon's hCG website lists available providers, physicians and weight loss clinics that prescribe his weight loss program.

    Benefits

    It is thought that when administered outside pregnancy, hCG's ability to break down body fat and increase metabolism could still be utilized for fat loss.

    Time Frame

    The hCG injections consist of 125 IUs (international units) and are to be administered daily for no longer than 40 days. During a woman's menstrual cycle, no hCG injections should be administered.

    Considerations

    It is important to note that hCG injections have not been found conclusively effective in weight loss and are not approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Many claim weight loss results from the hCG diet primarily comes from the eating plan.
