What is a HCG Diet?

Posted by SLIMTOX Team Member on

The HCG diet is a weight loss program that traditionally combined daily injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) while following an extremely low calorie restriction of just 500 calories per day. 

What is HCG?

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone that is released in large quantities during pregnancy which can be extracted from the urine of a pregnant women. 

How does it work?

Taking HCG puts your body into an anabolic state it conducive to building muscle and burning fat. When your body is in starvation mode due to caloric restrictions, hCG allows the body to burn unwanted fat instead of burning muscle, so the weight that is lost during the diet is mostly fat.

SLIMTOX offers a safe and effective alternative to pharmaceutical prescription human chorionic gonadotropin with our all natural support drops and patches. Learn more about our drop programs here.

Low Calorie Dieting & Weight Loss

Low calorie dieting is known to be extremely effective in losing weight. The deficit in calories causes your body to go into starvation mode which then naturally burns muscle and stores fat. 

Caloric restriction diets are usually combined with exercise to keep muscle mass maintained during the starvation mode of the diet. When you take hCG with a low calorie diet, the fat is targeted instead of muscle and used as energy making exercise less necessary than traditional diet and exercise programs.

A traditional HCG Diet Plan consists of two meals a day with protein and vegetables and 2 fruit servings. Appetite is suppressed by the HCG, meaning you will not have the normal cravings associated with dieting and will have an easier time sticking to the plan.

What Are the Benefits of Dieting With HCG?

It's so much more than just weight loss. Those who follow a HCG program will experience the following:

  • Increased burning of unwanted fat
  • Stabilised metabolism
  • Slimmed down abdomen, hips, upper arms, buttocks, and neck
  • Greater retention of muscle mass

Maintaining a healthy diet and an active lifestyle will help the results of the diet program last longer. Those who have followed a HCG Diet find maintaining their weight easier because of the fat loss and metabolism stabilisation that makes it easier to maintain a healthy lifestyle. 


SLIMTOX does not sell prescription HCG. This can only be prescribed by a Medical Practitioner. We offer a safe and effective alternate with our Homeopathic HCG Drops and Slimming Body Patches. All natural and free from any hormones.
