What is the hCG Diet for Weight Loss?

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin and is a hormone naturally produced in large amounts during pregnancy. It is thought that the hCG weight loss program provides nutrition and energy for the developing baby by allowing access to stored fat during periods between meals.

hCG is used to:

  • Target storage fat areas
  • Eliminate food cravings
  • Re-establish weight set point
  • Ensure patients are comfortable during the weight loss process

It is the above function in a pregnant woman that is the cornerstone of its usefulness in hCG weight loss programmes. It has been proved by many that hCG’s use with a strict calorie controlled diet is an invaluable treatment method for weight loss.


Using the hCG diet for weight loss unlocks abnormal stored fat reserves allowing the body to use them for energy. It creates a body sculpting effect by targeting these “problem” areas. You will see not only a dramatic reduction in weight, but also a reshaping of your body contour.
