The New HCG Diet
By Sheri L. Emma, MD Creator of Dr. Emma’s HCG Protocol
The HCG Diet Controversy, Pt 1 (4:51)
By now you’ve probably heard about it: the HCG Diet, an extreme diet that involves injections of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). HCG is the hormone women make when they are pregnant. Previously, the HCG Diet was defined by a 500-calorie diet paired with daily injections of HCG.
From This Episode:
This diet is associated with dramatic weight loss, up to a pound a day. But the problem, up until now, was that no doctor could explain how it worked, and critics claimed the caloric restrictions are responsible for the weight loss and not the HCG hormone. Critics of the diet have also maintained that the weight lost can’t be kept off. The HCG Diet has also had some odd rules. For example, it required the consumption of only one vegetable per meal, prohibited the use of oil, body lotions and hygiene products, and limited use of the HCG hormone to odd cycles of 23 and 46 days. The Diet also did not allow exercise. In addition, there had been no published guidelines on how to dose the HCG hormone; as a result, most providers of this diet are generally using random dosing of the prescription hormone. This was called the Simeons Protocol, and, in my opinion, it was wrong.
After years of research and treating thousands of patients, I am setting the record straight. The Simeons Protocol should no longer be in practice by any physician. My protocol is supported by numerous studies and clinical trials, the latest of which was presented to weight loss physicians at the October 2012 meeting of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians, and can be read at DrEmmasDiet.com. My dosing method is customized, with much higher doses than previously published, and I’ve created specific guidelines for patients based on age and gender. I offer diets ranging from 500-1500 calories, and the diet should be chosen based on the patient and their history. I also encourage the proper types of exercise.
So, the most pressing question is: Do HCG injections work for weight loss? My answer is yes, absolutely. The trickier question is: How does HCG work for weight loss?
Here is my explanation, based on my research. Remember, HCG does not make you lose weight – the diet makes you lose weight! However, the HCG injections change how you lose weight!
- By patient report, HCG reduces feelings of hunger. This allows them to eat very little comfortably. Why? It is believed the presence of HCG in the bloodstream takes the appetite away. In pregnant women, HCG often causes feelings of nausea in the early stages of pregnancy.
- HCG is a pro-hormone which helps the body make more hormones. Since hormone deficiency or imbalance is usually part of the reason for weight gain, whether it’s your thyroid, or menopause (or andropause), this hormone offers help.
- Only HCG injections have been shown to raise blood levels of HCG, so that is the only acceptable way of taking HCG at this time.
Do you have any idea what that would do to your body?
Any other way of taking HCG, such as drops, pills, or sprays, are likely dissolved before ever reaching the blood, and they do not raise blood levels; this would be like taking nothing at all. An injection is the only proven method of taking HCG at this time. Injections should only be taken with a prescription from a doctor, and under medical supervision.
HCG injections keep you from losing muscle while you diet. By elevating hormone levels in the body, including testosterone, the HCG hormone creates an anabolic state (muscle-building) which counteracts the catabolic state (muscle-breakdown). There are hormone receptors on muscle fibers that respond to the increased hormone levels in patients taking the HCG hormone.
Why does that matter? During a fast, dramatic loss of pounds with crash dieting, there is a high amount of muscle that is lost. Because muscle is heavy, this loss looks good on the scale because the pounds are dropping quickly. When you lose muscle, it’s bad for your body, shape, and metabolism. The metabolism slows so much that dieter regain weight quickly, often regaining all the weight that was lost and then some. Additionally, it takes quite a bit of work to build back the muscle that has been lost.
My protocol, however, protects muscle from being lost. In fact, there is more of a pure fat loss, which causes a shrinking in inches and size of clothing. The great result is that one can become leaner, in a smaller clothing size, but with more muscle. This muscle allows for a stronger metabolism and helps people maintain their weight loss long after their diet is completed.

Inches and Pounds
Welcome To Inches and Pounds the Vitality Clinic
Welcome to Inches and Pounds the Vitality Clinic, where you can take your first step to ending roller-coaster dieting frustration for good! You have probably tried several other weight loss programs and found that you have gained all the weight back and maybe even more!
The hCG Diet is designed to target FAT loss, not loss of your precious muscle, unlike starvation diets that are a quick fix.
Well, you are not alone then because many people are not aware of this fruit or how it is effective in accelerating the weight loss process.
Low calorie diets may result in muscle loss which can slow down your metabolism making it harder for you to lose weight in the future and causing you to gain back all the weight you lost. It is believed that the hCG hormone shrinks and liquefies fat cells and delivers up to 2000 calories of energy for your body to utilize, thereby preventing hunger and weakness.
The Physicians and Staff at Inches and Pounds the Vitality Clinic congratulate you for taking your first step towards ending roller-coaster dieting for good. We look forward to helping you achieve a healthier and thinner. YOU!
The Inches and Pounds the Vitality Clinic Team
Our doctors can provide medically prescribed hCG as detailed to qualified patients.*
Weight management is a serious issue in this country and should be seriously evaluated by every person. There are approximately 300,000 deaths in the US each year that are associated to poor dietary habits and lack of physical activity.
Almost two thirds of all adults are classified as being overweight with one third being considered obese and this number continues to increase for all ages and all cultural backgrounds. Seventy percent of diabetes risk is attributed to weight management issues and Americans spend over $33.5 billion per year on weight loss products and programs.
Inches and Pounds realizes how difficult weight management issues can be and has a dedicated team that can help get you on the right path to a healthier life. Our comprehensive initial testing helps determine if there are any underlying health issues that could be the cause of the weight issues. Almost 20% of the people we test are found to have underlying issues that require medical attention other than diet and exercise.
Once our doctors and medical professionals review your test results and health information, we can provide you with correct weight management options. Once determined, we will forward your completed medical chart to one of our clinics or to one of the doctors in our network who specialize in the specific type of treatment you need.
What are Peptides GHRP-2 and GHRP-6?
Clinical Information on Growth Hormone
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are Growth Hormone Releasing Peptides that are available by prescription.
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 are synthetic six amino acid chain peptides which directly bind to specific receptors on the hypothalamus to
produce growth hormone (GH). Additionally, they stimulate the hypothalamus to release naturally produced Growth Hormone
Releasing Hormone. Most commonly used to stimulate the production and release of endogenous GH, GHRP-2 /
GHRP-6 may be an appropriate therapy for weight management.
GHRP-2 and GHRP-6 stimulate the hypothalamus to release naturally produced GHRH.
At Thrive Naturals we are committed to providing you with an amazing customer experience.
Most importantly, GHRP-2
and GHRP-6 work on separate receptors in the hypothalamus and pituitary resulting dual site action.
While studies have shown a lack of response with GHRP-6 in GH-deficient patients with mutated GH-releasing hormone receptors,
GHRP-2 has proven itself effective in these patients due to its high potency.

Phase 2 hCG Diet Protocol Food Tips For Those on Go
What can people do when they are out in public and are unable to prepare the healthy meal of choice for Phase 2 of the hCG diet protocol?
People on phase 2 of the hCG diet protocol learn to incorporate healthy foods into their daily diet. They learn to cook these foods using low fat and simple methods. Dieters learn to enjoy healthy meal choices and learn how to create desirable meals out of naturally nutritious ingredients, all while losing approximately a pound a day.
Phase 2 of the protocol is based on foods like: lean protein (fish, chicken, beef), tomatoes, celery, asparagus, spinach, onions, green apples, oranges, strawberries and tea. Eating out in public can be somewhat challenging for a dieter in Phase 2.
To avoid any pitfalls a dieter can enjoy their experience by utilizing these tips:
• Dieters can order a choice of approved protein on a bed of lettuce. They can ask to have the protein grilled and plain, free from marinades and sauces.
Turn up the burn With MIC Combo Ultraburn
A mixture of amino acids and vitamins, MIC injections are commonly used to assist in weight loss and fat burning. Ask us today about the newest formula for fat burning
Methionine is an amino acid which acts as a lipotropic (fat loving) agent to speed up removal of fat within the liver and to prevent excess fat buildup in problem areas. It helps to detoxify the body of heavy metals and is considered to be an incredible anti-oxidant. Methionine compliments weight loss because it helps prevent and relieve fatigue.
Inositol is a B Vitamin. It is a mild lipotropic agent, helping with weight loss and the redistribution of body fat by breaking down fats in the body. Inositol is vital for good health, both mental and physical. It is reported to offer a calming effect, improve quality of sleep and treat depression. This important B vitamin may also reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol.
Choline is also a part of the vitamin B family. It assists our bodies to efficiently burn fat while supporting and promoting weight loss. Choline supports the health of the liver, improving its ability to process and excrete chemical byproducts within the body, which is important for the healthy support of the endocrine, cardiovascular and hepatic systems.
Pyridoxine (B 6 ) Vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine) injections are critical for protein metabolism, energy production and normal nervous system function.
If this seems relevant to you, check out The Diet Cure to learn more.
Vitamin B-6 is involved in nearly 60 enzyme systems in the body, necessary for normal growth, red blood cell synthesis and vitamin B-12 absorption.
Vitamin B 12 is also known as cyanocobalamin. B 12 is a vital nutrient that is critical for maintaining normal functioning nerve cells and aids in the production of DNA, and RNA, the building blocks for the genetic makeup of the body. Vitamin B 12 is also referred to as the energy vitamin, since it will provide an energy boost after an injection of the vitamin, and will help to increase metabolism. Vitamin B 12 is used in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates, and proteins, and is also required for fatty acid synthesis.
Chromic Chloride (Chromium) is an essential mineral (not made by the body). It is vital in regulating carbohydrate metabolism and blood sugar regulation. Chromium has been shown to lower blood cholesterol while mildly raising HDL (the good cholesterol).
Niacinamide (B 3 ) also a B vitamin is used to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and raise HDL (good) cholesterol. It helps with energy production and is needed for the proper function of the adrenal glands.
Riboflavin (B 2 ) – vitamin B2 is vital for healthy eyes, production of antibodies and proper tissue repair. It helps to metabolize medications and environmental toxins, is needed for energy metabolism and helps with the regeneration of glutathione (the strongest antioxidant produced by your body)
Thiamine (B 1 ) – was the first B vitamin discovered. Thiamine is involved with many of the body’s reactions, including the burning of carbohydrates for energy. It helps the body adapt to stress and avoid adrenal burn out, helps with metabolism of thyroid hormones and is required for proper nerve function.
Pantothenic Acid (B 5 ) also known as Dexpanthenol is involved in the body’s metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and proteins. It helps convert food into energy and is needed to make fatty acids. This B vitamin stimulates the adrenal gland and is used in red cell production.
