Benefits of HCG Diet Program for Women
The HCG Diet has been used successfully in both men & women for well over 60yrs.
Here at Dr O Medical & Wellness center, the HCG Diet program is fully Medically Supervised by our MDs, NPs & PAs to ensure our Patients get the best result possible.
According to Dr. Simeons’ research in the 1950’s, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG), interacts with the hypothalamus gland to curb appetite and mobilize excess body fat to be used as calories for energy. Combined with a tailored low-calorie diet, HCG produces effective weight loss; up to one pound per day.
Another researcher studied the HCG Diet protocol in 1970’s [Asher W, Harper H. Effect of human chorionic Gonadotropin on weight loss, hunger, and feeling of well-being. Am J Clin Nutr. 1973;26(2):211-8] recognized the positive effects of HCG in patients seeking dramatic and sustainable weight loss.
The program length varies depending on the weight loss goal.
Detailed diet instructions are provided – what to eat and when best to eat it. Typical meals contain tailored portion of protein/meal, healthy portions of vegetables, fruits and a toast. Coffee, tea and water are NOT restricted.
A significant benefit of HCG program at DrO Medical is that we can combine other modalities known to enhance your weight loss. Patients are taught how to exercise and be more health conscious overall, modify habits/behavior to become a lighter, healthier version of themselves. Permanent weight loss can be acheived!

Governmental Regulation of HCG
Prescription HCG is approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for 3 conditions – prepubertal cryptorchidism, hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and infertility; but not for weight loss. It is however legal in the United States for licensed physicians to prescribe HCG for off-label use such as weight management when they find it more beneficial for their patients.
Note that since 1975, the FDA has required labeling and advertising of HCG use for weight loss to state the following: “HCG has not been demonstrated to be effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.”
