Frequently Asked Questions about the HCG Diet

What do I do if I started the diet a couple of days ago but just started my period?

Dr. Simeons’ study showed that HCG is safe to take while you’re on your period but it is best to start in between cycles. If you are already on HCG it is ok to continue taking it when you have a period.

Are there any side effects to taking HCG?

No, there are no known negative side effects to the HCG diet if you stay on it the way it is designed. Pay attention to the meal plan and the foods, supplements, and liquids that are a part of the diet. Take the recommended dose of HCG daily at the same time every day, if possible.<

What do I do if I cheated? Do I need to start the HCG diet all over?

Cheating is, of course, highly discouraged because your body is really sensitive to additional fat, sugar, and calories while taking HCG. HCG actually mobilizes your excess fat so you always have extra fat in your bloodstream while on it, even though you’re on a 500-calorie diet.

There’s an easy fix for a cheat day, though! Just have an apple day! Instead of three meals, have six apples in one day. Make sure you eat them all! Yum! Cheating may hurt your results, but there’s no need to start all over.

Is homeopathic HCG really just as effective as the injections?

Absolutely! Homeopathy is a well-known source of natural remedies and cures. Homeopathic HCG is no scam—the diluted form of HCG is just as powerful and effective. Taking HCG drops sublingually is less costly, less painful, and not inconvenient at all like trips to the doctor’s office or mixing your own formula.

Doesn’t the weight loss just come from the very low calorie diet?

Aha! This is a common misconception. The 500-calorie diet is only part of the formula. If you were to only eat 500 calories a day without HCG you could become terribly ill, malnourished, weak, light-headed, and you could even gain weight! The 500-calorie diet is NOT intended to starve the body. HCG works by mobilizing excess fat that you would otherwise NEVER burn. Because it mobilizes it into the bloodstream to be used as energy, you only need 500 calories a day. The rest of your calories are coming from all that fat stored up in your body.

How important is it to stop using cosmetics, oils, and lotions?

Patients on the HCG diet do not have to forego all cosmetics. They are allowed to use lipstick, powder, mascara and brow liner. Creamy foundations, lotions, and oils are forbidden because those oils can seep into the body through the pores. This is a small sacrifice to make for permanent weight loss.

What kind of exercise do I have to do on the HCG diet?

There is no specific type of exercise you must do, nor is there a minimum amount of exercise. Dr. Simeons recommended light daily exercise, such as taking a walk, playing a round of tennis, or swimming. He also noted that patients who were very active before and during the diet did not feel as weak and had improved fitness levels after the diet concluded. Exercise can help you meet your weight loss goals even just by making you feel stronger.
