FAQClick the questions to see the answers
What are HCG drops?
The drops are made with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HCG, which is a naturally occurring hormone found in women who are pregnant. This hormone is responsible for ensuring that mother and child have enough to sustain them throughout the pregnancy. The HCG will hook into the deep fat reserves and convert it to energy so that both can survive during the pregnancy. With HCG drops, coupled with a low calorie diet in a person who is not pregnant, the body automatically hooks onto those stubborn reserves and starts to use them up. Once this process begins, the fat starts to literally melt away fast. Then, the body’s metabolism is reset at a higher level so that after the course is finished the body will continue to burn the stubborn fat even when the diet returns to normal. In other words, there is no ‘bounce back’ when the treatment is finished. Meaning that the weight will not come back as long as you continue a healthy lifestyle.
How do I use HCG Drops?
The drops are placed under your tongue and held for at least 30 seconds and up to two minutes to get fully absorbed. Studies have shown that using 10-15 drops, 3 times per day about 6-8 hours apart is the most effective dosing. For more details see the Instructions.

Mild hunger is normal during the start of the diet. Most dieters find even small servings to be satisfying.

Will I starve on only 500 calories per day?
No. The reason you won’t is because your body is still consuming 2000-3000 calories per day by “eating” your fat stores. The HCG is what tells your body to release the fat and this is why you will not starve or experience symptoms of starvation.

Eventually you will have a sudden weight drop all at once.
What should I do about hunger pangs?
Every dieter will get hunger pangs at least a couple times, usually in the first week. Use your two snacks throughout the day strategically to combat your hunger pang.

How can HCG drops help me lose weight?
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is found in pregnant women and it releases the stored fat to ensure the healthy growing fetes gets all the nutrients it will need to develop naturally. When HCG is consumed by the dieter the body will still release the stored fat and because there is no fetes, the body burns the fat for energy. This allows the dieter to release toxins and fat that have been stored. Abnormal fat burned, but normal,structural fat and muscle tissue is spared. This means you lose fat in those typical problem spots on the body – hips, buttocks, thighs and upper arms!
