hCG Diet SCAM! (video)

hCG Diet Scam!
by Professor Jay



The hCG diet is 100% bulls*it! I’m outraged that weight loss and health scams are not punishable by law. hCG is just another fraudulent weight loss scam that is making certain individuals Lots O’ Money. Any real controlled study looking at hCG and weight loss has shown conclusively that there is no evidence of increasing weight loss, reducing hunger, or contributing to feelings of well being. None! Not one.

hCG (human Chorionic Gonadotropin) is a hormone produced during pregnancy that helps regulate the woman’s body for the pregnancy. Since it is produced only in pregnant females and shows up in the urine, it is the protein tested for to determine pregnancy. hCG is collected from pregnant woman’s urine and sold as a weight loss product. The problem is that it doesn’t result in weight loss.

Even if it did result in weight loss, it still would NOT be effective if taken orally in pill or liquid form. Any protein taken orally is simply digested into amino acids in the stomach and small intestine. It is no different than if you took a bite of chicken or soy. All proteins are digested and absorbed into the blood as amino acids. It is the same reason why the protein insulin must be injected. If you took insulin orally, it would be digested and absorbed as amino acids.

The reports of weight loss success with the hCG diet is a direct result of the 500 calorie / day restriction, and not the hCG (supposedly) contained in the pill or liquid. This is a potentially dangerous amount of calories to consume per day. If anything, eating only 500 calories per day will have a negative effect on metabolism. This extremely low daily caloric intake puts the body into a starvation mode. It is a stress on the body, and is not a healthy weight loss plan.

I don’t necessarily support high levels of government regulation, but I believe there must be more stringent regulations regarding downright fraud and potentially dangerous health & weight loss scams. We’re playing with people’s health, and ultimately our health is our most important asset!

    Thanks Professor Jay. I heard about this diet from a friend who was going to try it, but didn’t know anything else. I will definitely tell her to forget about it.
    P.S. I love the new site. I downloaded your starter kit with the weight loss plan. Thanks 🙂

    Hi Professor Jay! I have a little insight on the HCG diet. The pills or oral dosage (drops) is actually a proprietary blend of “homeopathic” ingredients to mimic the HCG found naturally in pregnant females. When I recently question a consultant who is an ASN and “nutritionist”..not a registered dietician..(she owns a franchise marketing this diet to the public) she proceeded to state that she did not know the actual active ingredients of the HCG drops, the manufacturer doesn’t disclose that information…but they are all natural ingredients…hmmm…According to Dr David Smith, MD, the 500 calorie a day diet can be catastrophic for some as it can send their body into extreme stress on the entire digestive system and especially, causing undue stress on the nervous system, etc, basically causing confusion within our natural biorhythmic function. Hope this may contribute! Kim

    Hi Professor J. I would tend to agree with most everything you say however I have a cousin that’s used the entire simeon’s protocol to lose a ton of weight. She’s done the injections, followed the initial food routine which I think is the 500 calorie restriction, the exercise routine, etc. She looks and feels great. I’m not sure how long she’ll go on but she’s in the maintenance phase. She said the drops and pills weren’t effective for her so she went with shots instead. She was prompted to do this plan after going to the doctor and finding her blood sugar was elevated high enough that they wanted to start her on medication. I don’t think I could do the injection thing myself though. She’s the first real person I’ve known to use this type of plan and keep the weight off. I can’t wait to see how she’s able to adjust over the long run though.

      Sounds pretty scary to me! I’ll stick w/1300 – 1800 calories and 35-50 mins a day on my treadmill. The 9th Law diet helped me to go from 140 pounds (at my highest) to 118 – 120 today. I’m real happy with this outcome. Would still like to lose just a few more pounds but am in this for the long haul. I do believe my health is my greatest asset and since I plan to be around for awhile, it’s real important to me to maintain it.

    Sorry, but I completely disagree with you. I was on the DOCTOR regulated HCG diet for 40 days and am now in the maintenance phase of the diet. I have lost over 30lbs and feel/look great. My body was NEVER in starvation mode, my organs didn’t shut down, I didn’t have any adverse effects, no digestive problems, no nervous system problems and although I was a little hungry at times I am living proof that this diet DOES work, is NOT a scam, and I truly believe it in with all my heart. IF this is done right, IF you take the proper drops from a reputable PHYSICIAN, there should be no debate that this WORKS!

    HGG is stands for Human chorionic Gonadotropin. It is actually a natural hormone produced during pregnancy to help the baby get proper nutrients. Using method of HGG is also very simple. Just place the drops under your tongue. Hold the drops for 1 minute and no eating or drinking for 15 minutes.

    I’d like to know HOW the HCG is collected from women’s urine. Are they giving permission for this to happen? This all sounds weird. That seems too far-fetched to be real.
