Frequently Asked HCG Questions

What is HCG?

HCG is short for human chorionic gonadotropin.  It is a natural hormone found in the body. 


The FDA states that, “HCG is a hormone extracted from the urine of pregnant women.  It is approved by the FDA for the treatment of certain problems of the male reproductive system and in stimulating ovulation in women who have had difficulty becoming pregnant.  No evidence has been presented, however, to substantiate claims for HCG as a weight loss aid.”  This is absolutely true, it is not approved for weight loss because taking HCG on its own will not result in weight loss.  The key to using HCG for weight loss is to take prescription HCG in combination with a strict diet.  You need to do both in order to have successful weight loss. 

How does HCG work?

In 1954, Dr. Simeons discovered that this hormone could accelerate fat mobilization from certain areas of the body, if combined with a very low calorie diet. HCG has the effect of “unlocking” the body’s fat stores so that the metabolism can burn these energy reserves to power daily bodily functions.  The body needs more energy than the calories you are consuming so it uses the body’s fat stores as energy to compensate. Dr. Simeons says that HCG will release between 1,000-4,000 calories a day from fat stores to be used as energy. This is the reason HCG clients following the restricted diet are not hungry and shed the pounds!


The program is designed to help reshape the body’s fat deposits, particularly targeting the abdomen, buttocks, upper thighs, neck and face. It has also been suggested that HCG plays a role in establishing a new weight “set point” for the body, making one less likely to gain the weight back you’ve worked so hard to lose!

How much weight can I expect to lose?

This will vary depending on your gender and individual metabolism. Men generally lose more than women. If you have a higher metabolism, you may lose more quickly than someone who does not. 


On average women lose ½-¾ pound/day and men lose ¾-1 pound/day.

How long is the program?

The HCG clean start program length will be between 26-43 days during the first phase.  This is the phase when you will be taking prescription HCG every day in combination with a strict diet.

The second phase is six weeks. During this phase we work together slowly adding foods until you are eating a regular, healthy diet.

What will I be eating?

The diet consists of eating regular, healthy food that you can buy at any grocery store.  You will be eating 2 servings of lean meat, 2 servings of vegetables, 2 servings of fruit and 2 servings of bread during phase 1 (while you are taking HCG).

Why should I choose Down to Earth Wellness Center’s HCG program? 

You will have individualized attention from the nurse practitioner for approximately 3 months! You will be seen weekly to review your food journal, log your progress and discuss any questions or concerns. We will walk WITH you through this journey, customizing your plan of care as needed. At Down to Earth, our primary goal is to provide the tools and support you need to meet your goals!  We are genuinely excited to have the opportunity to be a part of your RESET!

Why is the HCG weight loss program so different from other programs?

No other weight loss program addresses and corrects low metabolism, intense and constant hunger, or emotional eating and food cravings.  The goal of the program is to bring these processes to a normal level. Ultimately, when you finish this program you will be able to be a normal person in relation to your eating and weight.  Your hunger will be normalized.  Your body will burn the food you eat, so that it does not turn to fat.  Your hunger and appetite mechanisms will be regular without food cravings. Additionally, the HCG protocol may reset your metabolism to a “normal” level, allowing you to actually eat more food without gaining the weight back.


To date over 30,000 people have participated in this protocol, so you are joining an established, safe, and very effective weight loss program.


Those on the HCG diet report it is easy to stay on the diet and they seem to lose inches rapidly from the primary fat stores. 


This weight loss program is not about being hungry the rest of your life.  It is about utilizing the benefit of HCG with a strict diet for a short period of time to give you long lasting results. When you finish the program you will be able to eat anything you like, but you’ll find you’ll crave more healthy options!

Will I be hungry?

I know you are thinking there is NO WAY I can make it on 500 calories a day! We  promise you once the HCG has taken effect in your body, you will not be hungry.  Over 30,000 people have followed this protocol and after the initial start of the program, they are not hungry!  Remember your body is not going to be operating on just the calories you are eating because the HCG will be releasing the fat stored in your body. So if your body needs 1500 calories a day to function, it will take 500 calories from food and the other 1500 calories from your fat stores, so your body is never hungry and your metabolism does not adjust down to match your low caloric intake.


Essentially HCG acts as a natural appetite suppressant! The current thought is that HCG interacts with the hypothalamus, and more specifically with a hormone that tells the body it is full. This is called leptin. HCG appears to trick the body into thinking it is full so you don’t feel hungry!
