HCG Basics

Yes, there is a way to lose weight quickly and safely! The hCG diet has
helped millions to lose weight and engage in healthier lifestyles. By taking
the first step and making the choice to return to a more invigorating
lifestyle you are on your way!

Some of the benefits of HCG include the following:
1) Positive effect on mood
2) Increased energy levels
3) More rapid loss of inches
The hCG diet was originally developed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons to aid clinically obese patients in quickly returning to a safer weight zone to avoid deadly health conditions. Research of 40 years and thousands of cases conducted by Dr. Simeons has lead to the concept of the hCG diet, which is meant to be a healthier interpretation and implementation of weight loss rather than the purely cosmetic, over-hyped diets of today.

The 23 Day Program
PHASE 1 – Days 1- 2 Gorging Days plus hCG Injections
PHASE 2 – Days 3-23 hCG Injections 500 Calorie Diet
PHASE 3 – Days 24-26 500 Calorie Diet only No injections

Why do I have to do the “Gorging Days”?
Everyone asks this question. The fact is that this phase is required
to bring the hypothalamus gland in balance. But don’t worry,
whatever is gained here is lost again very quickly!
