Compliments of C. Accebe
Determining your dosage: Preparation
according to Dr. Simeons' original hCG diet protocol calls
for 175 i.u. daily doses. Read the manuscript
here. Kevin Trudeau has
published a different protocol, calling for 175 i.u. to 200
i.u. dependant on various factors, including the amount of
weight that needs to be lost. Discuss the amount of
your protocol with your provider.
Required: hCG in powder
concentrate, injection safe sterile water, syringes for
mixing with replacement needles, alcohol pads, sterile glass
A note on the sterile water
provided with the hCG:
powder concentrate includes an ampoule of liquid sterile
water to be mixed with it, however, this amount is not
sufficient for the hCG weight loss shots and should be
discarded. An entirely new, larger vial of injection
safe sterile water is required. Sterile water which
can be found at any medical supply site, or pharmacy, that
is safe for injecting. For 175 i.u. doses, 30 cc of
water is needed.
Bacteriostatic sterile water is noted to
preserve the mixed hCG for up to one month.
**IMPORTANT NOTE: DO NOT MIX TWO DIFFERENT LIQUIDS WITH THE
HCG. You want to use only one liquid, from one source,
to dissolve the powder.

Mixing materials should be laid out in the sterile
environment and hands should be washed with anti-bacterial

sterile water is injected into the hCG ampoule, slowly down
the side of the glass, not allowing the needle to touch the
glass. If the needle touches the glass, replace the needle
before continuing to the next step. The powder
will dissolve almost immediately, with a gentle swirling of
the vial. DO NOT SHAKE.

1 ml = 1cc
The result is 25 doses of 1 ml doses. 1 cc of
the new mixture is drawn into a new 3 cc syringe for
each injection providing a 200 i.u. dose.

Measurements and Amounts
175 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 5000 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The procedure is the same as above, except 28.5 cc of
sterile water is used instead of 25 cc. This results in 28
doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of the mixture is drawn into
a sterile 3 cc syringe for each injection, providing the 175
200 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 1500 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The mixing procedure is exactly the same as the above
procedure except 7.5 cc. of sterile water is used instead of
25 cc. Results in 7 doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of
the mixture is drawn into a sterile 3 cc syringe for each
injection, providing the 200 i.u. dose.
175 i.u. INJECTIONS WITH A 1500 i.u. AMPOULE OF hCG:
The mixing procedure is the same as the above procedure
except 8.5 cc of sterile water is used instead of 25 cc.
Results in 8 doses of 1 ml each. 1 cc of the mixture
is drawn into a sterile 3 cc syringe for each injection,
providing the 175 i.u. dose.
Which syringes are used for
HCG weightloss shots?
General details that should help with this discussion
with your physician: Although a very small, 29 gauge,
1/2" inch needle is considered more comfortable for HCG
self injecting, most medical professionals agree that a
larger, 25 gauge 1 inch needle is required for
intramuscular injection. 3 cc/ml is the container
Consider self-sheathing needles for the protection of
yourself and others. OD NOT REUSE NEEDLES.
1 ml = 1 cc
i.u. = international units
HCG should be refrigerated after mixing
Notes about Syringes used for HCG diet shots
The larger the gauge number, the smaller the
needle: for example, a 21 gauge needle is
larger than a 29 gauge needle.
