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.]

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.
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.
One of the first questions people ask when hearing about using HCG for weight loss is, “How much weight will I lose if I follow the hCG diet?”
It’s been reported that most people who follow the HCG diet have an average weight loss of between 1 to 2 lbs a day. It’s so motivational to see the weight “fall” off so quickly!
Often times, faster weight loss will come about when adding/increasing water and sea salt intake. The water will flush toxins out of your system, and the sea salt will add valuable minerals to your diet.
If the idea of the hCG diet sounds too complicated, rest assured, it isn’t. In the simplest terms; you follow a strict diet, accompanied with very small amounts of hCG, to attain remarkable and permanent weight loss. Using HCG for weight loss really is not all that complicated.
However, for more detailed information, it is strongly recommend that you read “Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity” by Dr. ATW Simeons, to get a full understanding of the protocol.
With the HCG weight loss diet only allowing a very low calorie diet, what you eat is extremely important. Not sure where to start? We recommend the HCG Diet Cookbook – this is a great starting point!
HCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone present in both men and women, however, it is produced in great amounts in women when they are pregnant. During pregnancy, the substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions.
HCG also works in non-pregnant people, research suggests HCG increases the metabolism similar to a pregnant woman. Dr. Simeons’ research suggests a small, daily injection amount of HCG (approx. 125 IU to 200 IU), results in an average weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day when accompanied by a very low calorie diet. Many people have used HCG for weight loss and have been very successful.
