Hcg diet results
It will also lead to less cravings for starchy and sugary food items.
My hCG Diet Results
At the start, I was 172 lbs, a size 16/18, at 34.5% bodyfat – I had almost 60 lbs of fat on my short 5’1″ frame.
Fast forward with hCG Injections, I reached 117 lbs initially, added several pounds of muscle through crossfit, and now have been consistently between 124-127 lbs for close to 3 years, a comfortable size 4, 16-17% bodyfat – I now only have between 18-23 lbs of fat on my body at any given time.
I lost 2/3rds of all the fat on my body. Just wanted to clarify that.

As well as the hCG diet workbook I released in 2015 that’s sold thousands of copies – now in digital format that allows you to print the tracking sheets OR fill them out on your device. Workbook? Yes lemme check that puppy out.
I would LOVE for you to watch the video above because it really SHOWS you what can be accomplished LONG TERM with this protocol if you have the right mindset.
Update February 2018:
You may see a 2 year anniversary maintenance video above. It’s now been OVER 5 YEARS that I’ve been maintaining my hCG Diet weight loss. I NEED to get a new video and post together – but still haven’t. I’ve been too busy making the P3tolife program to help you guys stabilize and maintain your own weight loss, and now I’ve moved on to the Phase 2 Recipe Project (check it out – yes RECIPES for P2!) My aim is always to help you guys succeed yourself FIRST.В But just to share, I am still maintaining ladies!
This is so important because honestly, the weight loss aspect of any diet, including hCG, can be considered “easy” (even though actually the hCG protocol is anything but easy!) – but in comparison to actually maintaining weight loss, hCG is reliable and straightforward. Maintenance is where we ALL struggle. But don’t feel discouraged – seriously, the ladies who follow my P3tolife program between rounds of hCG and after after being done, REALLY maintain. I want you to know this is totally doable not just for me, but for you. You live in your body every day! So you care about you and what you want out of life, as it should be. You can really do this.
Here’s a current photo I took in November:
Is This Diet Going to Starve You?
В В В В Welcome!В I know you guys want to know a little about me and my results with this protocol, so you can decide if it’s something you should check into or not.
Especially because you’ve likely heard that the HCG diet is a scam, a placebo, that it’s dangerous, or something to that effect.
The first thing I want to say is that no one is forcing you to agree to anything, so please don’t feel pressured or threatened.
There’s no rush for you to decide if this diet is truly a scam or if it really works.В Simply reading about it is not the same thing as doing the diet, so nothing bad is going to happen to your body right now while you’re on my blog, I promise!В It often pays to keep an open mind, collect the appropriate information and analyze, then make a decision for yourself.
I feel this is a very valuable thing to do because giving a decision thought and research means that you will feel GOOD about your final decision, whether it’s a go or a no-go, you’ll have that inner peace inside you. For starters, you can check out my quite detailed and long discussion regarding 5 Common Myths About the hCG Diet – whether it makes sense to you, you are free to decide!
My hCG Diet Before and After Stats
YES, I am a REAL person.В Really really! I’ve been married for 12 13 14В 15 16 17 years to my best friend and we have a 3 4 5 6 7 8 year old son (whom you’ll see make “guest appearances” in some of my youtube videos– subscribe so you don’t miss those).
In a nutshell – I began the hCG protocol in February of 2011. I have been maintaining my approximate 50 lb weight loss from the hCG protocol, without doing the diet again, for over 4 years, since November of 2012. And just a quick note – some see the number and get a little confused, wondering if it took me 2 years to lose 50 lbs – no don’t worry!
We use advanced security software to ensure that shopping with us is as safe as secure as possible.
I have a full post explaining my unique journey here, but basically, I took LONG breaks (several months) between each 6 week round on the diet. I was technically a normal weight after only two 6 week rounds of hCG – so close to 50 lbs in just 12 weeks total. So yes, this doesn’t take forever.
Update January 6, 2017
It’s now been over 4 years since I finished hCG. I still have yet to make a new update blogpost since my previous one like 2 years ago – sorry guys- been busy making other stuff for you all! But I’m still between 16-17% bodyfat, and still crossfitting consistently 3-4 days a week. Here’s a most recent photo from January 2017:
Check out my previous detailed personal update from April 2015:
The beautiful thing about my maintaining weight loss story is I haven’t spent 1 day in the entire past two years doing any counting of calories whatsoever. Yes, my eating has changed overall, more on that later, but it has come to fit seamlessly into my life in a way I don’t have to spend excessive time thinking about or being obsessed with. I think that is the goal for all of us.
You’ll find as you spend more time on my blog that I’m VERY honest and realistic about what you can and can’t expect with on this diet plan.
I have lots of bodyfat testing to prove my fat loss with hCG, which if you are leery of it, might help you, and I’m just as quick to tell you how hard this protocol can be if you’re not mentally ready for it.
If you are interested in trying this protocol after reading my results, you can check out your options at my special page for where to purchase hCG.
I have learned through this process to think more in terms of fat and body fat percent, rather than weight on the scale, which I realize will be new for many of you.В Now I spend my days going to Crossfit, lifting heavy weights and doing High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)- I do this 3 hours a week and I LOVE it.В I recently hit a PR (personal record) of 103 lbs for an overhead squat!
I am coming up on my 2 year anniversary maintaining my weight loss in October folks- can’t believe it’s almost been that long. I was 125.4 lbs on the scale this morning, and have not used hcg at all since my last round in November 2012.
Crossfit is still going well- in fact if you want to see my latest personal update showing some of my crossfit moves рџ‰ you can do that here.
The pic below is my latest photo take July 2014
It’s now been OVER a 2 years since I finished hCG! В I am currently at 16.5% bodyfat at 127 lbs- which is actually a little less than when I finished the diet.В In reality, I’m quite a bit more fit/stronger now as I’ve gained about 8 lbs of muscle since then (thank you Crossfit).В You will see if you spend any time on my blog that I’m most concerned about body composition and fat loss, not simply weight loss- there’s a big difference.В The reason this is important is because I have been freed from the scale as a judge of my body- I actually weigh 8-9 lbs more than the day I finished my last round of hCG on any given day, but I am happy about this because all of it is actually muscle.
Here’s up my updated photos- by the way- the reason I don’t look all super amazing compared to some after photos you might see sometimes is because I don’t do anything special like go tanning, wear high heels, photoshop parts of me off, or un-smile in my before photo to make my after photos look better- these photos are just me- and in reality, even though I haven’t put on fat, muscle takes up space on your body as well, just not as much as fat, so my measurements ARE indeed increased in some areas since finishing the diet due to this muscle, but I’m digging my strength now.
Update April 2015
The hCG Diet Workbook has just been published! You can find out more about what’s inside it and how it can help you here:
I carefully crafted the workbook based on all that I know when it comes to what someone on the hCG protocol needs.
As I write this, April 23, 2015, I was 124.8 lbs on the scale, still a very comfortable size 4 and a I-feel-like-being-cute-today-so-i’ll-wear-my-size-2-jeans.
Seeing Me Throughout My Weight Loss Journey
I have several different blogposts about my diet results and just about me in general:
I have chronicled just about every phase of my journey on youtube- I’ve chosen just some highlights here:
You can also see ALL my personal diet videos.В This would be more if you have the flu and are literally bored out of your mind, trapped on your couch at 3 a.m.
And to make matters worse, many of these products don’t contain the 60% HCA you need to get real results.
A proper vegan balanced diet is recommended for the best results.
(perhaps with someone threatening you if you did otherwise).
Lastly, here’s a little video I made of my results from Round 1 to Round 4 which shows something around a 50 lb weight loss (can’t even remember now!)- it will give the big picture of what I’ve accomplished.
And Now What Am I Up To?
Well first of all I have the immense privilege of helping others on this protocol!В I never thought when I started this diet back in 2011 that I would be spending my work hours each week creating content to help people get their life back and steer them through the difficulties of this admittedly challenging diet- I treasure it and truly enjoy helping you guys!
While everything I provide to you guys is free (until my coaching video course comes out that is!В Then it will simply be 99% of everything I provide is free), the way I am compensated is when some of you choose to purchase your hCG through one of the companies that I proudly recommend on my site here.В I only recommend hCG that I know to be the real hormone. You should always do what is best for you personally, but if you happen to decide to buy your injections or drops through one of these companies anyway, might as well use my links right?В You don’t lose anything at all and I can keep crankin’ out the videos.В Thank you all so much for your support!
Aside from that, I am doing my best to be a good mom, although I frequently fail my own standards, I’m a woman of faith, I crossfit, and oh yeah, I QUILT.В How’s that for a hodge podge of interests?
And maybe you’re wondering how old I am because I saw in my website stats that someone searched “how old is hcgchica” the other day.В haha!В I turned 33 this year.
The Long Version of my Diet Story
My journey began in February 2011 when I was doing yet more research online regarding my autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s, basically where my body attacks my own thyroid and gradually destroys it.В I had been ill several years without knowing why, and finally after getting a diagnosis, got some of my life back by taking thyroid medication, in the form of Cytomel (also known as T3 or active thyroid hormone…but that’s another story).В However, not all things were as they used to be pre-illness.В I continued to struggle in many ways with my health and weight.В My eating habits had gone downhill because of my depression over losing the active person I could no longer be.В I became addicted to sugar.В While researching this particular issue with sugar and looking at anti-yeast and candida diets, I saw someone ask a question on a forum- it said “does the hCG really work for weight loss?” or something to that effect.
I had never heard of this diet, so with interest I clicked on the thread and started reading.В The information was intriguing to say the least, but pretty hard to believe.В Still, it was certainly plausible, and what got me thinking that “hey, maybe this really works” was the fact that it wasn’t a new fad diet with some supplement someone supposedly just came up with; rather, it was a weight loss protocol that had been around since the 1950’s, when a man named Dr. Simeons discovered what could be achieved by combining the natural hormone hCG with a very low calorie diet.В Just as there are many cancer cures out there that have cured cancer in the past, but which remedies or knowledge of such remedies have been obliterated (see the book Politics in Healing- the Suppression and Manipulation of American Medicine) by the “Powers that Be” since those “Powers that Be” couldn’t make money off of such therapies.В After reading reading the history behind this protocol (it’s really not a diet, but a protocol to healthful wellness), I felt there may be some merit to it.
Proof that hCG works was in the real people doing the Diet
Next I started finding vlogs of people on youtube who had done or were doing this protocol in real life and sharing their experiences (click here to learn how to find these people).В It’s pretty tough to argue with real live people isn’t it?В You can read all the postings on forums and hubpages articles saying “hcg is a scam” or “hcg is a starvation diet” by people who have neither tried the diet nor researched it (btw do I look starved in the above photo?), but the truth is in actual results of thousands of people.В Real people were losing a lot of weight very quickly using this method.
My last concern was “how much of the weight loss on this diet is muscle and how much is fat?”В This was something with a much less clear answer as there haven’t been too many people aware of or able to track their bodyfat percent before and after doing the hCG diet through the reliable methods known, which are hydrostatic body fat testing and now, the DEXA scan.В The few examples I did find lost very little if any lean mass while doing this diet.
These are really frustrated customers that have been scammed out of their hard earned money.
This was encouraging to me, however the examples were all of men, who have a serious advantage in maintaining muscle because of their testosterone levels (I’m sure it’s more complicated than that but you know what i mean- I’m a GIRL- I’m different).
My own proof that the Diet works came from body fat testing
After thoroughly researching this protocol for months I finally felt comfortable and ready to proceed with it.В I did a hydrostatic body fat test before I started, and subsequent testing after each round.В I’m proud to say, that when doing the hCG diet properly, muscle loss is minimal even for women.В My third round alone I lost 7.5% body fat in only 38 days.В That equates to 16.8 lbs of fat lost and 4.2 lbs pounds of muscle.В So while there was some muscle loss, the ratio was phenomenal for what I achieved.В After my third round, I started going to a Crossfit gym 3-4 days a week to get strong (remember, I am coming from a pretty sedentary lifestyle as after I became ill I could no longer be active much of the time for several years).В In only 3 months time I gained 7 pounds of muscle!В Again, this was proved by hydrostatic body fat testing.В I maintained almost all my fat loss as I only gained 1/2 pound of fat back with that 7 lbs of muscle.В I did a subsequent 4th round to lose even more fat, then took a 5 month break where I again went to Crossfit 3-4 days a week, this time gaining 5 lbs ofВ muscle and again, only 1/2 pound of fat back.В I completed a 5th round which has brought me down to 21 pounds of fat total on my body (compared to the 59 pounds of fat I started with).В I never thought I could be this small again, and now I’m doing kipping pull ups at crossfit with ease.В Yes I just performed about 100 of them the other day for the infamous MURPH wod.

Maintaining Motivation On The HCG Diet
by admin on December 5, 2012 in After HCG
Maintaining enthusiasm and motivation for the HCG diet program is not always an easy task. It varies from person to person, but many people find . Continue Reading →
Are You Tired of Fad Diets? Find Out Why HCG is the Most Popular and Most Effective Weight Loss Treatment.
HCG, which stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is a glycoprotein hormone produced from the embryos of women during pregnancy. This hormone, though previously considered to be unrelated to weight loss/weight gain, was discovered in the 1950s to be highly valuable in the treatment of obesity. Dr. A.T.W Simeons pioneered the research in this field, using injections, coupled with a low calorie diet, in order to arrest and completely reverse weight gain. Many studies and countless real world people have achieved amazing, lasting, weight loss with HCG.
The HCG diet plan is absolutely spectacular in its effectiveness. Recent new information released indicates that not only does HCG help you lose weight fast, but also it helps to cure diabetes! We reported on a new HCG study that not only definitively showed the HCG diet worked, but that the it also helped boost insulin levels and metabolism. This absolutely a stunning development, considering that HCG has never been used to treat diabetes. It's quite amazing that such a simple hormone is turning out to have so many amazing, and unexpected effects.
We provide Dr. Simeon's book free of charge with all of our orders, so all of our customers can follow his plan closely. HCG drops in recent years have received much praise for their cheap price, high effectiveness and wide availability. As with all things that help people, there are many imitators that develop around it.
Homeopathic HCG is quite popular right now, but there are several key issues with it's effectiveness.
The problem however, is that there are so many brands available on the market that it can become an impossible task for you to choose which brand is right for you.
Almost all Homeopathic HCG drops contain little to no actual HCG. The term homeopathic actually refers to medicine that is diluted and heated in such a way as to kill its effectiveness. As such, it is practically worthless, as it destroys the protein strands that make up HCG. As a result, it is important that you choose and utilize only Real HCG Drops.
What about HCG injections. Are HCG drops as effective?
HCG injections were the primary way HCG used to be administered. Since HCG generally was thought to need monitoring by a doctor in order to maximize effectiveness, doctors were the primary way patients achieved HCG's amazing benefits. In the early 2000s, however, several pharmaceutical companies began offering HCG drops, as a low cost alternative for achieving similar results.
As with any effective weight loss, imitators begin to form around the effective treatments. Homeopathic HCG drops were created for just this purpose. They are cheap, contain little to no HCG, and are often sold as the real thing. Homeopathic HCG is everywhere on the Web, but these drops contain no HCG at all. The HCG diet plan has been quite effective as studies have begun showing in recent months. It not only provides one of the most stable and long lasting treatments for obesity, but also has become a staple of any doctor's prescription plan for helping patients lose weight.
HCG injections have continually provided, fast, permanent weight loss. However, recent studies show that Non-Homeopathic HCG drops provide almost the same level of effectiveness and promptness of weight loss. Non-Homeopathic HCG drops are the real deal, and are produced by a single American pharmaceutical company for sale as supplements. These drops are less expensive than injections, and far less painful. Careful monitoring is still necessary, but there is more leeway in the dosage with Real HCG drops. As with all programs, you should follow the guidelines supplied on the bottle and otherwise. However, if you need further assistance with your real HCG drops, please feel free to contact us directly.
Why Non-Homeopathic HCG Drops? Are They Really Better?
The term Non-Homeopathic refers to the way in which a product is manufactured. Homeopathic is defined as a drug with minimal, or nearly zero, dosage. Non-Homeopathic HCG drops, however, are reliable alternatives that provide similar outcomes to injections.
Do not be fooled by Homeopathic HCG drops for this reason. Clinical levels of HCG are necessary for real progress to occur. The drops we provide use supplement binders, in accordance with FDA regulations, and are manufactured within the USA. Most of these Homeopathic HCG drops are mainly coming out of China. These suspect drops are increasingly turning into an attempt to fool unsuspecting customers, who believe they contain HCG.
Non-homeopathic HCG fits well within the HCG diet plan as it provides top level treatment for discounted prices. The HCG diet plan, which includes 4 distinct phases, relies heavily upon levels of HCG being maintained within the body. This strategy utilizes several key aspects, including HCG hormone administration, and a lower 700 calorie per day meal plan. We at Bottled HCG diet actually provide this meal plan and recipe guide free of charge to all of our customers. Along with your real HCG drops, you will receive a full fledge guide that will help you on your journey to a healthier you.

HCG for Weight Loss

Take a "natural" hormone the body makes during pregnancy -- and lose a lot of weight? That's the promise that's turned the hCG Diet -- named after that hormone -- into a craze that just won't quit. If you also go on an ultra-low-calorie diet, backers claim, hCG can “reset your metabolism” so you lose as much as a pound a day without feeling hungry or weak.
Here's what the science says: Any super-low-cal diet will result in weight loss.
HCA inhibits citrate lyase and the entire process of fat production will no longer exist – giving you effective fat production prevention done in the most natural way possible.
Most studies have found that hCG (stands for human chorionic gonadotropin) has nothing to do with it.
The hCG diet limits you to 500 calories a day for 8 weeks while taking hCG, either by getting a shot or by taking a “homeopathic” product, such as oral drops, pellets, or sprays, which you can buy at the store.
None of this is approved by the FDA for weight loss. The shots themselves are legal, as long as a health care provider gives them to you. (They're approved to treat fertility issues.) But over-the-counter hCG products are not. The FDA has sent warning letters to several companies that market homeopathic hCG products.
What You Can Eat and What You Can't
You won't be eating much. The diet lets you have two meals a day, lunch and dinner. Each meal has to include one protein, one vegetable, one bread, and one fruit.
You can broil or grill veal, beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp as long you don’t eat any visible fat. No salmon, eel, tuna, herring, or dried or pickled fish are allowed.
Vegetable choices include spinach, chard, chicory, beet greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, fennel, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, and cabbage.
Bread can be one breadstick or one piece of melba toast.
For fruit, you can choose an orange, an apple, a handful of strawberries, or half a grapefruit. The diet allows as much water, coffee, and tea as you want. You can also have up to 1 tablespoon of milk per day.
You can use sugar substitutes but not sugar to sweeten drinks. Butter and oils aren't allowed.
Level of Effort: High
It's very hard to stick with the strict calorie limit. Not only is it uncomfortable to live on just 500 calories a day, it can be dangerous. It’s impossible to meet all your nutritional needs on so few calories. You may not get enough protein, either. If you're getting less than 1,200 calories a day, it's going to be challenging to get enough vitamins and minerals without supplements.
Doctors sometimes recommend a very-low-calorie diet (under 1,000 calories per day) if someone is obese and has a medical condition such as high blood pressure, but these diets are always carefully supervised by a doctor.
Does It Allow for Dietary Restrictions or Preferences?
Vegetarians and vegans: Its fans say anyone can follow the hCG diet. But that doesn’t mean it’s safe, especially for vegetarians. The diet's creators say that vegetarians would have to drink extra skim milk to make up for not getting protein from meat and other sources. Because it includes dairy, it's not a vegan diet.
Gluten-free: This isn't a gluten-free diet.
