Q. What is HCG?

A. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone is a substance, which occurs naturally in pregnant women and has the effect of releasing abnormal stored fat.

Q. How does this reducing method work?

A. It works with a combination of a daily injection of the HCG hormone plus an exact diet.

Q. Is it harmful in any way?

A. No. During pregnancy it is produced daily in a quantity a few hundred thousand times the amount used for the treatment of obesity, yet it harms neither the mother nor the child.

Q. Can it be used by both men and women?

A. Yes. It has been used successfully in both men and women.

Q. How does HCG and the diet work?

A. During pregnancy, HCG is believed to help ensure that the fetus will have access to its mother’s stored fat supply, regardless of the amount of food that she eats. In overweight people, HCG seems to work by the same method—making permanently stored supplies of fat available, helping the patient adhere to the diet.

Q. Will HCG work without the diet?

A. Although there is no dramatic weight loss without the accompanying diet, HCG usually causes a reduction in inches rather than pounds.

Q. Will it affect my appearance? Will I get wrinkles or stretch marks if I lose a substantial amount of weight?

A. No, not with this method. Abnormal fat deposits should disappear. Double chins, pot bellies, and fat around the thighs should be the first to go. The treatment does not deplete the subcutaneous or other essential fat. The face retains its freshness and natural appearance.

Q. Has this method been used before?

A. Yes. HCG had been used in thousands of cases before it was first reported in the Medical Journal Lancet in November 1954. Since that time, it has been used in many more.

Q. How do we know that the combination of HCG injections and the diet are more effective than just the diet alone?

A. In a test case, weak saline solution was substituted for the HCG, unknown to the patient. Weight loss continued for about three days and then the patients complained of feeling weak or dizzy, became ravenously hungry, and declared themselves unable to continue the treatment. As soon as treatment on HCG was resumed, they again felt satisfied with their diets.

Q. What effects can I expect from the injection itself?

A. Usually, a loss of appetite occurs and patients notice that the severe compulsive hunger disappears completely.
