HCG Injections for Weight Loss

Jen Larson, HDI Founder

Over 39% of the population is now considered obese, with the annual healthcare expenses of an overweight individual, exceeding $1,400. (Source: CDC Obesity Statistics.) Fortunately, one of the fastest growing practices in medicine is the treatment of obesity through rapid medical weight loss. These treatments come in a number of options including gastro bypass surgery, extensive liposuction, and hormone therapy; otherwise known as the Hcg Diet Plan.

So what does the Hcg Diet Plan consist of? Dr. A.T.W. Simeons was a renowned endocrinologist awarded for his medical research. He dedicated countless years to developing a treatment for obesity, which was inspired during his work with poverty-stricken women in India; their ability to produce healthy, full weight babies, when they themselves were severely malnourished, ultimately led to the use of Hcg injections to release nutrient-dense fat cells and maintaining muscle mass to stimulate the metabolism.  

Today’s Hcg Diet Plan combines a carefully selected amount of HCG hormone with a specific list of allowed Hcg foods.  The original Hcg weight loss protocol includes a 500 calorie diet menu, known as the VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet.)

What is Hcg? Hcg stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a hormone that exists in both men and women, but is largely produced in massive amounts by the placenta in pregnant women. It is the hormone responsible for nourishing the growing fetus and resulting in healthy, well-nourished babies.

How do Hcg weight loss injections work? A very small amount of the hormone administered through injections has the effect of eliminating  hunger and preserving muscle throughout the course of weight loss on the HCG diet. Although there are other successful delivery methods, HCG injections is the only one where the HCG will show up on a blood test.

Benefits of Hcg Injections: Hcg has a number of benefits and has been widely as a medical treatment for many years. Most commonly, it is used for fertility and in testosterone therapy for men. It can be used to treat adolescent boys experiencing delayed puberty. In much smaller dosage amounts than these treatments, Hcg is also used for weight loss and has been growing in popularity since early 2000’s.

How to take Hcg Injections for weight loss: Hcg can be taken as either subcutaneous or as intramuscular injections.   Originally, the protocol was developed to use intramuscular injection, but it has been found that both methods yield excellent results. Standard injection instructions apply.

How are the Injections mixed?  Hcg is mixed with multi-dose bacteriostatic water or bacteriostatic sodium chloride. Ideally the mixing ratio is 1:2 or higher.  (example: 5000iu HCG with 10ml bacteriostatic water).  1:1 mixtures are often prescribed but are difficult to adjust if a dose change is needed. Dr. Simeons mixed 1:4 in his clinic. (5000iu HCG with 20ml bacteriostatic water). Generally, if you choose the 1:4 mixing ratio, you will need to transfer your Hcg to a sterile mixing vial large enough to hold it.

Hcg and Testosterone for Men: Hcg injections are not only used for weight loss in men, but also as hormone therapy to increase testosterone. You can read more about the Hcg Diet for Men here.

Hcg Diet Injections and Phases: The Hcg Diet protocol is made up of phases; each with their own specific and essential purpose for the injections to work effectively. Phase 1, is the loading phase, is designed to increase fat stores as the HCG builds to full potency. This is when the Hcg injections are first taken; on loading day 1, and again on day 2.  The injections are continued on day 3, known as phase 2, the weight loss phase.  During P2, a very specific, low calorie diet (VLCD) is followed and injections are taken daily.  Dr. Simeons suggested a dosage of 125iu daily. This includes a limited list of approved foods, as well as eating guidelines.   At the end of Phase 2, the injections are discontinued for the last 3 days.  The next step is  Phase 3, known as the transition phase, in which the dieter stabilizes their weight loss and injections are no longer needed. Phase 3 allows for the reintroduction of new foods, through a carefully planned approach with  less restrictions. This period lasts for 3 weeks, after which the dieter can transition to Phase 4 or choose to continue in P3 until the waiting time is completed to start their next round (a minimum of 6 weeks).  Phase 4: long term Hcg Diet maintenance.


Hcg Diet Injections Cost: Hcg can range in cost.  Weight loss clinics charge anywhere from $600 to $2000+ for a 1 month treatment. However, with the practice of telemedicine and telehealth becoming more popular every day, it is now a simple process to purchase Hcg diet injections online. These companies offer complete kits at affordable prices that include a legal and valid prescription from their prescribing doctor. All doctor and medical staff consults are included without hidden costs.

Side Effects and Safety of Injections 

Most people experience no side effects from the HCG protocol.  In the first few days, some may experience a mild headache.  HCG injections can sometimes create symptoms mimicking pregnancy, such as tender breasts or nausea, but this is usually mild and abates quickly.  A woman’s cycle can be affected in intensity, duration and length. This is temporary and things will return to normal once you are off the HCG.  Men need not worry that they will be feminized in anyway by the HCG protocol, even though HCG is a pregnancy hormone. The amounts of HCG administered are very small and actually serve to enhance testosterone production.

HCG injections produce little or no tissue-reaction, and if injected properly, can be  completely painless. One should always equalize vial pressure (by injecting the same amount of air into the vial as solution you will draw out)  to avoid the possibility of contaminating the solution. This prevents  a vacuum in the pressurized bottle of hCG when preparing or using the HCG mixture. Otherwise, alcohol used for sterilizing a frequently perforated rubber cap could be drawn into the solution. When sharp needles are used, it sometimes happens that a little bit of rubber is punched out of the rubber cap and can be seen as a small black speck floating in the solution. As these bits of rubber are heavier than the solution they rapidly settle out,  it is thus easy to avoid drawing them into the syringe.


Use very fine needles for intramuscular injections. They should be 1-1/2 to two inches long and injected deep in the outer upper quadrant of the buttocks. The hCG injection should if possible, not be given into the superficial fat layers, which in very obese patients must be compressed so as to enable the needle to reach the muscle. It is also important that the daily hCG injection should be given at intervals as close to 24 hours as possible. Any attempt to economize in time by giving larger doses at longer intervals is doomed to produce less satisfactory results. One of the benefits of the IM injections is that very seldom is a dose change needed.

Equally good results can be obtained with subcutaneous injections. These are administered with insulin syringes. A 29-31 gauge needle is most comfortable, but be aware that the higher the needle gauge, the thinner the needle is and more subject to bending.  A good starting dose for subcutaneous injections is 150iu.

There are hardly any contraindications to the HCG injection method. Treatment can be continued in the presence of abscesses, suppuration, large infected wounds and major fractures. Surgery and general anesthesia are usually no reason to stop as long as a Dr. has been consulted and assured the patient they may continue the hCG injections. Acne or boils are no contraindication, the former usually clears up with the continued use of hCG injections, and boils comes to an end. Vein inflammation is no contraindication; several obese patients have been treated with HCG and the 500-calorie diet while suffering from this condition. One impression has been that in obese patients the phlebitis does rather better and certainly no worse than under the usual treatment alone. This also applies to patients suffering from varicose ulcers which tend to heal rapidly with the use of hCG injections.

Please remember that HCG injections for weight loss should only be taken after consulting a physician.  They will conduct a clinical interview to determine if the HCG injection protocol is the proper weight loss solution for you, and they will instruct you on the proper method of injecting yourself at home.
