Why should I get prescription HCG?
The prescription HCG is more potent and therefore more effective at not only causing weight loss, but at reprogramming the hypothalamus for long-lasting effects. HCG is a prescription medication and should be prescribed by a medical doctor.
Do I have to use injections?
HCG is most effective as a subcutaneous injection, but is also available as sublingual (under the tongue) tablets, a nasal spray, and drops. The injections provide the most absorption into the body and are therefore the most effective for weight loss. Most people are pleasantly surprised to find that they can barely feel the tiny insulin-like needle. The doctor will show you how to do it.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
Most women can expect to lose, on average, 3/4 to 1 pound of fat every day. Most men lose up to 1 pound per day. The program is for 40 days, in which case most people lose 25- 40 pounds, but results may vary.
What if I have more than 30 pounds to lose?
If you have more than 30 pounds to lose, you may need additional courses of HCG. After the 40 days on HCG, you enter a maintenance phase for 6 weeks, during which time you will be counseled on how to maintain or even continue your weight loss.
Is it safe?
Under proper supervision, HCG is very safe. Those patients who should be watched carefully are patients with undiagnosed diabetes, hypothyroidism, or adrenal disorders. Additionally, women with undiagnosed uterine bleeding, a history of breast cancer or other gynecologic cancer should not be on HCG.
