The NEW hCG Diet Plan
The hCG Diet was initially created by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons and outlined in his original manuscript, "Pounds and Inches: A Guide to Weight Loss." This plan was intended for seriously obese individuals already at high risk for serious health issues because of their weight. Over time, the diet has been modified by individual physicians and coaches to meet the needs of today and to include what we now know about health and weight loss. This has resulted in an entirely new approach to the original protocol, focused on getting people truly healthy, and not just thin. Afterall, it's not about being skinny, it's about being healthy!
For a complete overview of the original protocol including foods and dosages originally permitted by Dr. Simeons, see HCG Diet page.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the hCG Diet?
hCG stands for Human Choriogonadotropin, the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. (Please note that the hCG used in the hCG Diet is synthetic hCG produced in a laboratory.) Research suggests a small, daily dosage of hCG (approx. 125 IU to 200 IU) results in a weight loss of 1 to 3 lbs per day when accompanied by a specifically outlined VLCD (very low calorie diet of approximately 500 calories).

"Where can I find the original Dr. Simeons hCG Diet Protocol, "Pounds and Inches" and why should I read it?"
Dr. Simeons book, "Pounds and Inches" is the very detailed, original manuscript of the diet. It includes everything from body chemistry, the effects of beauty products used during the diet, and of course, the very specific 500 calorie diet known as VLCD or Very Low Calorie Diet.Even if you are following a different protocol, it is still suggested that you read the original manuscript to understand how the diet works and important aspects of the protocol that will ensure your weight loss success. The original manuscript can be found here: "Pounds and Inches" by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons." For those who would prefer a more efficient look at the manuscript, a brief outline of the original protocol can be found here: Dr. Simeons Original hCG Diet Protocol.

The HCG Diet List of Professionals: Find Coaches, Physicians, Specialists and Clinics that follow the protocol.
While many hCG Dieters consider following the diet on their own, a Specialist is always recommended and are becoming more available every day. Weight loss clinics and doctors that specialize in using HCG for weight loss, now offer numerous variations of the original protocol based on modern knowledge of health and wellness. They are available in most cities across the US and numerous other countries. While this is certainly helpful, it can be daunting choosing the correct specialist for your particular needs. That is why we have created a directory (hCG Diet Providers) where you can find the right weight loss professional as well as suppliers.
