Does the HCG Diet Work?

You may have caught today’s episode of Dr. Oz talking about the HCG Diet. In it, he states that there is no proof that the HCG Injections actually work. He also talks about the homeopathic HCG Drops and how they should not be used. Homeopathic diet drops have actually been banned by the FDA. HCG Drops Direct is one of the only companies to actually have a government agency’s license to sell our products. HC6 Brand diet drops have been licensed by Health Canada. They are in fact not homeopathic. We agree with Dr. Oz. You should stay away from the homeopathic drops. You should stay away from the injections. HCG Drops and HCG Injections have never been clinically proven. HC6 Brand Diet Drops have been clinically proven. Studies have been conducted on the primary ingredients that have shown them to be effective for weight loss. But it’s up to you. You can go with something that has never been proven to work. Or go with the drops that are clinically proven.

Doctor Oz – HCG Shots


So recently, Dr. Oz featured the HCG Shots on his show.

We don’t doubt that these work. Because they do. The shots are great.

However, you are definitely going to pay for it. The shots are extremely expensive.

Also, one of the biggest reasons that we developed the HC6 Brand is that it is hormone free.

A lot of people have problems with injecting themselves with hormones.

Our drops have ingredients that have been clinically proven to burn fat and suppress the appetite.

And when used in conjunction with the HCG protocol, they are that much more effective.

What do you think?

HCG Diet Protocol as a Way to Change Your Life

So lately I have been thinking a lot about the HCG diet. I know that there is a lot of controversy going on about it. The FDA has banned the manufacture of the HCG hormone and are saying that the HCG diet doesn’t work. Well, we know for a fact that it works. But how many of us have tried it, and then gained the weight back?

I know that it happens. That is why the HCG Drops Direct Program isn’t just a diet plan, it is a lifestyle change. The HCG Drops Direct Program is a way to jump start your weight loss and become the person that you want to be.

So after you do the program (which is based on Dr. A.T.W. Simeons book Pounds and Inches) what are you supposed to do? We get a lot of emails from satisfied customers asking how long they have to wait to go again! Many times they are discouraged by the answers. And that answer is, you need to wait! You need to do the Stabilization and Maintenance phases. These phases combined are at least 6 weeks and it gives your body time to adapt to the changes.

Think about it. If you have just done the program you may have lost anywhere from 20-30 lbs or more. Some clients report losing up to 50 lbs at a time. That is a huge shock to your body. And you need to recover from that. The 6 week period of time allows your hypothalamus to reset and adjust to your new weight. It is your hypothalamus that dictates what your weight should be. That is why sometimes it is so hard to lose weight. So do the 6 weeks and then if you want to do another round of HCG, then do it. You will have much more success if you wait.

Sometimes we get asked, “Can I exercise on the HCG diet?” Of course you can, but you don’t have to. If you choose to, you would need to increase your caloric intake to compensate for what you are burning while exercising. How about this one, “Should I exercise after the HCG diet?” Of course you should! Even if it is just going for a walk around the block. You need to get up and move! You should be doing at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise 3-5 times/week when you are not on the HCG diet. This is what is going to help you the most in the long run. If you are just doing the diet to lose weight and you don’t think that you don’t have to do anything else afterwards, you are in for trouble. You will simple gain the weight back. The HCG Diet is just the beginning of your lifestyle change. And we are here to help. Leave your questions in the comments.



There are so many different sites out there now that sell HCG diet drops. A lot of them have gotten away from what it really means to do the HCG diet. This diet is a huge accomplishment. Even if you are able to only do three weeks and you lose 20 lbs. That is a huge accomplishment. There are people who are losing 85 lbs and more. Obesity is a huge problem all over the world. And it is only getting worse. It leads to so many different diseases that we can avoid if we would get rid of the weight.

You are here because you want to change your life. You have come to the right place. We have helped thousands of people lose the weight. I won’t tell you that it is easy. But it is definitely worth it to see that weight coming off. Your confidence goes up. You like yourself more. You start to be able to do things that you couldn’t previously.

That is what the HCG Diet is all about.


How to lose weight

Well this seems like kind of a dumb thing to talk about on our site right? Of course I am going to say that you should use HCG Drops Direct products to lose weight. Right?

But that isn’t exactly what I wanted to talk about. I wanted to talk about what actually goes on when you decide that you want to lose weight.

At what point do you realize that you need to lose weight? About 20 lbs too late. By the time you realize that you need to lose weight, you should have already started losing weight.

At what point do you actually start? Do you give yourself a limit? Do you say, “Once I hit 250 lbs, I am going to start losing weight.”?

That is too late.

Do you say, “Starting January 1st, I will start?”

That is too late.

The right time to start is now.

Don’t worry what time it is. Don’t worry about what day it is.

The next choice that you make is going to affect whether or not you start losing weight.

You may not decide to purchase HCG Drops Direct products. But don’t follow up that poor decision by eating a donut.

The next decision you make is the most important one. When you get up to go grab a soda, grab a water instead.

Instead of chips, grab a carrot.

These are all the things that you need to change.

Personally, I set a goal for the month of January 2013 to follow a very strict version of the Paleo diet. But that doesn’t mean that I am making poor choices until then.

Last night, someone offered me a free donut. I said, “I can’t afford it.”

So how do you lose weight? It’s all about choices.

What Are the HCG Diet Drops Side Effects?

Many people have asked us, “What are the hCG diet drops side effects?” This is a great question. There are some side effects that you can expect. The obvious ones are of course weight loss. You can expect to lose weight. Sometimes up to 2 lbs/day. When I tell people this they say, “No, I mean are there any negative hcg diet side effects?”

As with anything there are things that you might experience when you take the hcg drops. But they are few and happen rarely.


Some people have reported to experience constipation with the HCG drops. Many times this is simply caused to not drinking enough water. When on the protocol, you should always follow the hcg diet tips that are included with every order. In these tips you will find that you should be drinking at least 1 gallon/day of water. Make sure that you are drinking enough. If you are drinking at least 1 gallon/day of water, and you still become constipated, you can do what is called an “apple day”. You eat nothing but apples while still taking the drops. You have to remember that you will not experience normal bowel movements while taking the drops. You are eating a lot less than you are used to and what you are eating is almost all being utilized for energy.

No Weight Loss

Some people have reported that after a few weeks they begin to plateau. The solution to this one is the same as above. Apple Day.


Some people have reported that they have experienced headaches during the hcg diet plan. This happens sometimes as your body detoxes. You have to realize that before you started the hcg diet, you were filling your body with caffeine, sugars, fats, oils and chemicals. Your body has to cleanse all of these toxins. The detox process is not a fun one. I was actually talking to my brother in law the other day who is a drug and alcohol counselor. He was telling me that there are people who often die from alcohol detox. But don’t worry, he also told me that alcohol is the only chemical that can cause death when detoxing. Just make sure that you are drinking plenty of water. If you have to, take some ibuprofen or acetaminophen. But stay away from anything with caffeine in it. There are also issues that are specific to women. But those will be discussed in a different post.
