Do HCG Injections Hurt?

Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet protocol uses HCG Injections on a daily basis so if you’re a bit put off by the idea of having to give yourself injections daily, read on:

“HCG Injections can be quite painless. The whole theory behind HCG is that it helps you to lose weight using only your fat reserves, while at the same time keeping your brain out of “famine” mode and sparing critical fat and muscle.”

The needle gauges we offer are very small – 27g¬†or 28g. Many people have reported barely feeling anything at all when giving themselves the injections, especially with the 28g needle. Of course everyone is different but if you’ve come this far, go for it!

Do You Know How to Mix HCG?

Once hydrated, most HCG looses its potency in about 30-45 days, so the more control you have over that “clock,” the better.

So you’re best option is to mix your own HCG. But don’t worry! It’s not has hard as it sounds. BASICALLY, it’s a three-step process:

1. Hydrate the HCG.

2. Put the hydrated HCG into a clean, empty glass vial.

3. Add enough mixing solvent to get the mixture to the right strength for dosing.

Of course, there’s a little more to it than that. But we do have complete mixing instructions on our webiste: www.hcgsupplies.com. Just click on “Mixing Instructions” for complete details.

HealthWatch: Hormone Could Lead To Weight Loss

Pregnancy Hormone Could Trigger Quick Slimming Effects

How far would you go to lose weight?

The latest diet trend actually tricks your body into thinking it’s pregnant. And believe it or not, women who are on it say the weight just melts off, up to a pound a day.

But some doctors are concerned.

CBS 2 HD investigates the HCG diet.

When you think of pregnancy,¬†you¬†don’t usually¬†think of weight loss.¬†

But a¬†new diet may, modeled after pregnancy, may change that. It’s all because of a hormone found only in mothers-to-be, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG).

“It’s produced by the placenta, part of the structure within the uterus that provides nutrition for a growing baby,” said Dr. Barry Klyde.

The hormone’s main function is to convert stored body fat into energy to help maintain the fetus. But now, women and men are using HCG to help¬†lose weight.

“It’s unbelievable,” said Kelly Vaughn, a radio disc jockey who uses the injections under the supervision of her physician who prescribed the shots for her.

Here’s how it works. The hormone injection tricks the body into thinking it’s pregnant. The body then converts stored fat into energy, but because it isn’t needed to support a fetus, it triggers weight lost.

“The theory behind HCG is that when it’s in your bloodstream, it releases your fat stores, which is what it’s designed to do in pregnant women,” Vaughn said.

The diet also requires eating just 500 calories a day ‚Äď but HCG also works to surpress appetite.

Vaughn has tried Weight Watchers, Nutrisystem, and Physicians Weight Loss, but says HCG is the only diet that has actually worked for her.

“I’ve lost 40 pounds. The first three weeks I lost 15 pounds,”¬†Vaughn said.

The use of HCG for weight loss, however, has not yet been approved by the Food and Drug Administration, and concerned experts are warning of potential serious side effects.

“In women, the use of HCG can distort the menstrual cycle. In men the overproduction of testosterone can cause prostate enlargement and serious consequences,” said Dr. Klyde.

Vaughn said she doesn’t notice any side effects.

“I didn’t notice anything about it,” she said.

In recent years, additional studies show the weight loss may have been a result of the diet’s strict 500 calorie limit, and not necessarily the HCG. Still, many say they couldn’t have done it without the injections.

The cost of HCG is about $140 a month…

In Trudeau’s book “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About,” he discussed the HCG Diet Protocol. He discusses Dr. Simeons’ “Pounds and Inches” protocol, and the years of research he did, studying the effects of hCG injections for weight loss. Trudeau also dicusses the “Phases” of the diet.¬†¬†¬†

This book and the theories in it have gained popularity over the years. The diet is gaining popularity with weight loss clinics, health professionals, and individuals looking to permanently shed unwanted pounds. We recommend reading this fascinating book!

HCG Syringes and Needles

Syringes and needles are a necessity when following the HCG diet. We know some people may be a bit fearful of using needles and this is why we have them in two different sizes.

1. Small/Subcutaneous: This is a 28 gauge, 1/2 inch, 1cc needle-syringe, sometimes referred to as an “insulin-style” syringe. It is typically injected into the stomach/”love-handles” region, or the upper thigh. These are “subcutaneous” injections, which means it goes just below the skin.

2. Large/Intra-muscular: This is a 27gauge, 1 1/4 inch, 3cc needle-syringe. It is typically injected directly into the muscle, usually in the buttocks or upper arm. 

You will need to be sure you have enough supplies to get through your 23 or 43 day protocol. If you are unsure of the size needles and syringes you will need, you can view our Needle and Syringe Size Comparison PDF

[Be sure to contact your physician if you are unsure about where to inject, or any other medical questions.]

HCG Mixing Kits

If you are following the HCG diet there are definitely some supplies you need. The HCG mixing kits we carry are designed to provide you with the essential items that you will need to mix together the ingredients properly.

Our Mixing Kits include:

Injection needles/syringes, your choice of large (intra-muscular) or small (subcutaneous)

Empty mixing vials, your choice of clear or amber

Large needles and syringes for mixing

-Your choice of mixing solvent

Alcohol Pads

When you’re searching for supplies you want to be sure you get those of the highest quality from a reputable source and that’s us!

Is Losing 1-2 Pounds a Day Healthy?

To many, losing 1-2 pounds a day is amazing! However, the question of whether or not this is healthy generally comes up.

Weight loss that occurs when you follow the Dr Simeons diet protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle, which means the weight lost comes directly from fat and does not strip the body of muscle, vitamins or minerals.

Download Dr Simeons Manuscript — “Pounds and Inches” for more information.

Are Injections Absolutely Necessary for Weight Loss?

One question that comes up frequently is whether injections are absolutely necessary or if there is another way to go about using HCG for weight loss. The answer is no, injections are not absolutely necessary; a sublingual (or under the tongue) method is another option but we have found the best results are from the injection method of hCG diet protocol.

If a fear of needles is the reason you want to try the sublingual method, rest assured our needles are very small and many of our customers have reported that they don’t even feel them.
