The HCG Weight Loss Program's outstanding success is attributable to its scientific basis. It does what no other plan can because it addresses - 

The Leading Cause of Obesity –

An improperly functioning hypothalamus gland

While other plans that are designed to help you lose weight focus on external factors such as special diets, they are of limited success since they fail to address the problem of an improperly functioning hypothalamus gland. However, with the HCG program, the hypothalamus is able to reset and function properly. When the hypothalamus functions correctly, it will help you to:

  • Stop intense food cravings
  • Eliminate constant hunger
  • Improve your metabolism
  • Reduce abnormal and unneeded fat

You will look better, feel better and have increased energy.

Research on the cause of obesity

Dr. A.W. Simeon, a British physician, performed extensive research on the cause of obesity in the 1950's. He discovered that the leading cause of obesity was an improperly functioning hypothalamus gland. The hypothalamus is the master gland in the brain that controls some of our basic instincts such as thirst, hunger and sex drive.

Types of fat

The human body has three different types of fat:

1. Structural fat that cushions the organs and is found in the abdomen. 

2. Normal fat is the fat that forms the padding on the hands and feet. 

3. Abnormal fat is the extra fat around our waist, buttocks and upper thighs (love handles or "spare tire"). Abnormal fat is the fat that Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) helps remove safely and effectively.

When the hypothalamus is stimulated by HCG the body is able to release the abnormal fat and allow the body to rid itself of large amounts of fat quickly.

The HCG Weight Loss Program provides a combination of a very low-calorie diet (VLCD) and the precise amount of HCG needed to stimulate and reset the hypothalamus.

When a person successfully completes the HCG Weight Loss Program the hypothalamus is able to reset and function properly.

Dr. Simeon discovered that the hypothalamus gets overloaded with more fuel than it can process due to the typical American diet - high in refined foods, sugar, and hydrogenated oils. Genetics also plays a role in how the hypothalamus functions. An abnormal functioning hypothalamus gland is a leading cause of obesity. When the hypothalamus is not functioning correctly, it causes the body to have intense food cravings, constant hunger, low metabolism and a surplus storage of abnormal fat.

What is HCG?

HCG is the pregnancy hormone that is produced by the placenta of pregnant women. Dr. Simeon discovered that HCG allows the hypothalamus to function at a higher capacity thus allowing the fetus to have the energy and nutrients it needs to grow and develop normally. Dr. Simeon noticed that even in cultures where malnutrition was rampant, newborns would have normal birth weights while the mothers often lost weight during the pregnancy. These observations formed the development of the HCG Weight Loss Program.

The principle behind the HCG protocol is using a combination of precise amounts of HCG along with a very low-calorie diet (VLCD), that allows the hypothalamus gland to function at a higher capacity and access the abnormal fat that normally is not metabolized.

Resetting the hypothalamus is vital to your success at weight loss.

No other weight loss plan achieves that goal!

The VLCD consists of consuming 500 calories a day. This may not seem like enough calories, but because your body is able to access and use the abnormal fat as energy and nutrition, your body is actually metabolizing between 2500 and 4000 calories each day. After a person successfully completes the HCG Weight Loss Program the hypothalamus will reset, increase your metabolism, and have a new comfort weight for the body to maintain. When a person is able to successfully reset the hypothalamus, they can eat literally anything they want with only a few exceptions including refined foods, sugars, and starches. You will maintain your weight for the rest of your life by following some simple recommendations.

The HCG Weight Loss Program also seems to tighten your skin so you don't get flabby - instead, you look great!

The HCG Weight Loss Programs involve four (4) distinct sequential phases: 

Phase 1 is the detoxification phase           
Phase 2 is the HCG rapid weight loss phase           
Phase 3 is the reset phase
Phase 4 is the maintenance phase

During the HCG rapid weight loss phase, the HCG hormone is administered by either a small injection, sublingual (under-the-tongue) drops or troche (gel tab that dissolves).  A very low-calorie diet is followed consisting primarily of specific proteins, vegetables, and fruits.  Only 500 calories per day are allowed. In addition, adequate water consumption and regular exercise are part of the program. Specific supplements are required to ensure safe and maximal weight loss along with maintaining energy!

Phase 2 (HCG rapid weight loss phase) is done in 23 to 40-day increments. After a 23 to 40 day HCG phase, the final two phases must be completed.  Specific testing may be required for some patients.

When followed correctly, the HCG Weight Loss Program will result in
approximately one pound of weight loss per day!

Nearly all of the weight loss will be in the form of unwanted body fat. Since excess body fat is being metabolized each day, patients tend not to feel hungry or suffer from fatigue or brain fog. Most patients state that they feel great throughout the entire process. Feeling hungry is usually not a concern. You can expect to lose up to 20 pounds during each 23-day phase of the HCG rapid weight loss program!

The entire process is monitored by the trained staff at the Wycoff Wellness Center. Body composition measurements are made at the beginning, middle and end of the program. Appropriate supplements are recommended and tailored to the individual patient's needs. Protocol information and recipes guidelines are included. Dr. Wycoff and his staff are available to answer any problems that may arise throughout the process. HCG is a safe and effective way to achieve long-term weight loss.

The HCG Weight Loss Program is not for everyone. There are certain patients who should not use this program. Dr. Wycoff will review the program in detail with you at your initial visit and determine if one of the Wycoff Wellness Center's HCG Weight Loss Programs are appropriate for you.

1. Is it necessary to see a doctor to begin the HCG Weight Loss program?

Yes, HCG is a prescription medication and may only be used under a physician’s guidance. You should consult a physician before beginning the HCG program.

2Is it safe to use HCG?

Yes. Although HCG has not been approved by the FDA for weight loss, HCG is a natural hormone and is an FDA approved medication.

3. What is HCG? How does it work?

HCG is a naturally occurring substance that is produced by the placenta of pregnant women. HCG is used in the medical field to treat an assortment of medical conditions. During early pregnancy, the level of HCG doubles every 2 to 3 days. This substance allows the body to mobilize fat and use it as energy for both the mother and growing fetus. This acts as a “fail-safe” device to provide energy immediately for the fetus. For weight loss, HCG drops or injections capitalizes on this same idea. HCG used in this form does not mimic pregnancy. It can safely be used by men and women.

4. Will the very low-calorie diet (VLCD) slow down my metabolism?

Normally when a person lowers calorie and fat intake, the body begins to store fat and the metabolism does slow down. This occurs because fat is a life-saving source of stored energy. When a combination of a VLCD and a precise amount of HCG is used, it signals the body to access and use this stored fat for energy. This eliminates the excess fat reserves so there are no adverse effects on the metabolism. When fat deposits are released, the body uses it as fuel, which causes a person’s appetite to decrease.

5. Couldn’t I lose the same amount of weight without using HCG and just follow the very low-calorie diet (VLCD)?

By simply cutting back on calories and fat consumption, one can lose weight. The risk is you will lose both fat and valuable muscle mass. When the body is deprived it tends to store fat. This causes the cellular metabolism to slow down. When the metabolism slows down it becomes easier to gain weight and also decreases muscle mass. By following the HCG Weight Loss Program (VLCD and taking exact amounts of HCG), the excess fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated. The VLCD is essential because if prevents an instant refilling of the emptied fat cells. This is what helps maintain your muscle mass by eliminating fat deposits. You would lose weight on a 500 calorie eating program but only about 2 pounds per week and most of the weight loss would be muscle mass loss.

6. How much weight can I expect to lose after completing the HCG program?

Most patients lose on average about 20 pounds per 23-day course of HCG. Most patients lose anywhere from ½ pound to 2 pounds a day. Some patients tend to lose more weight quicker than others.  We have seen many patients lose 40+ pounds during a 40-day course of HCG.  We have had patients lose 20 pounds or over 100+ pounds.

7. Will I starve on the very low-calorie diet (VLCD)?

HCG liquefies fat which opens up all of your fat cells. The liquid fat is then made accessible to the body to use as energy. Even though a person is consuming fewer calories, the body is able to access the stored energy that is in the fat cells which naturally reduces appetite. After a few days on the HCG Weight Loss Program, many people report a major decrease in appetite. Most people that have successfully completed the HCG weight loss program have reported having plenty of energy while on the program.

8. How many drops to I need to equal the amount in an injection?

The amount of HCG drops to be used twice daily is noted in your HCG Patient Instruction Binder. Just follow these directions to obtain the correct dose.

9. How do I store the HCG? What is the expiration date?

Mixed forms of HCG need to be stored in the refrigerator after either the sublingual or injectable form is mixed, HCG troches do not need to be refrigerated. Keeping the mixed HCG refrigerated prolongs the shelf life of the product and maintains its strength.

If the mixed HCG is allowed to warm to room temperature some potential loss of effectiveness may be seen.

The expiration date for HCG is marked on each vial of HCG.

10. Is there a difference between the injectable form of HCG, the sublingual (under-the-tongue) HCG drops and HCG Troche (gel tabs)?

There does not appear to be a significant difference in the efficacy of the injectable form of HCG, the sublingual HCG drops, and HCG Troche. The HCG drops should be used twice a day – twelve hours apart; the injectable form and troche are administered once daily.

11. What if I have only ten or fifteen pounds to lose?

The HCG Weight Loss Program is designed to reshape your body and release abnormal fat deposits. If you are in Phase 2 of the protocol and lose all the weight you need before the minimum 23 days has been completed, simply double the amount of food on the VLCD. It is important to complete the 23 days on Phase 2 of the protocol and then proceed and complete Phase 3 & 4. Your body will not go below a normal set point in terms of weight loss.

12. What about eating in restaurants?

Eating in restaurants is a nightmare since you can not control what exactly you are eating. Most restaurant food is heavily processed, loaded with trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, MSG and lacks fiber. The portions are outrageously huge. It is best to avoid restaurants altogether if you want to succeed with long-term weight loss.

13. Can I take higher doses of HCG?

Dr. Simeon’s protocol was derived after trying a number of different dosing regimens. He found that higher doses of HCG did not improve weight loss. You should take the amount recommended by the Wycoff Wellness Center.

14. Can I stay on Phase 2 longer than 46 days?

Dr. Simeon found that the body has a tendency to create immunity or become tolerant to HCG after a period of time. Therefore, staying on Phase 2 for longer than 40 days is not advised. You may repeat Phase 2 of the program as many time as needed after completing the 24-day Phase 3. You may move directly from Phase 3 or Phase 4 back to Phase 2 after an appropriate break in time.

15. What if I cheat on the VLCD during Phase 2?

This program is limited to 500 calories of food intake as outlined in Phase 2. It is important during this phase to maintain the specific types and quantities of food in order to be successful. If you are unable to be completely compliant on the program, you cheat on a meal or two, the weight loss process will stop for a few days or you may experience a slight increase in weight. Don't be too hard on yourself; immediately resume the protocol again and carry on. If you cheat on a meal every other day or more frequently, the program will just not work and will be a waste of your time and efforts. If you find you cannot be compliant with the instructions, this weight loss program may not be the best choice for you.

16. Can I mix vegetables?

No, with one exception. You can make a salad consisting of various organic lettuces, cabbage, spinach, celery, onions, cucumbers, radishes, and tomatoes. Dress with MCT oil and organic raw apple cider vinegar or the juice on one-half an organic lemon. Add sea salt, black pepper, crushed garlic or dried or fresh herbs.

17. What is a Bioimpedance Analysis (BIA) test?

Bioimpedance is a measure of biological resistance or impedance. Bioimpedance may be used to accurately measure body composition and determines the amount and percent of lean body mass (muscle, bone, organs, skin, and water) and body fat. The test also determines the amount of total body water. BIA testing allows for the determination of how you are losing weight (for example, it tells if you are losing muscle or fat). Using a typical scale as your only gauge of weight loss is often deceiving as you must lose fat and maintain muscle mass to achieve long-term meaningful weight loss. 

18. For Women Only:

  • It is recommended that treatment should begin for women the day after the last day of their menstrual period. Another option is to start the HCG phase of the program at least 10 days before your expected next menstrual cycle is expected to start.

It is recommended that during menstruation no HCG drops or injections be taken. During menstruation, women need to continue the 500 calorie diet (VLCD). As soon as their menstrual cycle is over, they need to resume taking the HCG and continue on the VLCD. If the HCG drops are not resumed once menstruation is over, extreme hunger may occur.

  • Women may continue to use birth control pills or other forms of contraception while on the HCG weight loss program. The HCG will not affect any form of contraception.
  • HCG will not affect any type of hormonal replacement. HCG may be used safely with any form of hormonal replacement.
