Many dieters ask: What is the correct HCG dosage I should take?
Remember, our first advice would be to seek a medical professional for this kind of information.
There’s two “schools of thought” on figuring out which dosage of HCG is right for you: Dr. Simeons, who wrote the original HCG Protocol, recommends 125iu/day for almost everyone. Kevin Trudeau, who wrote a book about Dr. Simeons, recommends 175-200iu/day.
Some dieters feel that when using the subcutaneous injections, you should increase your dosage, usually an increase of 25-50iu/day. These dieters believe that some of the HCG is “lost in the dosing process” because it’s not going directly into the muscle, as Dr. Simeons suggested. (Subcutaneous means “just under the skin.” These are injections taken in the abdomen or upper arm, using our 28g x 0.5in x 1cc injection needle/syringe combos.)
Figuring out your dosage is important during the mixing process. This determines how much solvent to add to your HCG. Which is why HCG supplies has a great dosage chart that you can use to help figure out all the details of your specific mixing situation.
If you’re still having trouble with dosing and the mixing process, give us a call at 703-859-9303. We can help you decide on the best dosage for your situation, and help you with “personalized” mixing instructions.
Always be sure to follow the directions in anything you may be taking!
Here what people are saying about the HCG Gourmet Cookbook…
“My husband loves the tacos and he’s not even doing this diet! These recipes make the diet so much easier and more enjoyable. I made the beef tacos tonight and they were SO GOOD!!! I could have eaten a truckload of them, though. That’s the only problem 🙂 Thank you for your hard work and for giving us exciting recipes to eat on the protocol. It is very much appreciated.”

Most dieters prefer to mix their HCG with Bacteriostatic Water. (Pronounced “back-tear-e-o-sta-tick”). Bacteriostatic Water is sterile water with 0.9% alcohol to keep it sterile.
HCG supplies offers you Bacteriostatic Water for mixing. Although mixing solvent is included with our Mixing Kits, you can purchase it separately. (Remember, shipping is FREE at HCG Supplies!) Bacteriostatic Water for HCG Mixing is sold in 30 ml vials.
When you buy hcg online , it typically comes as a dried, compressed powder. You’ll need some type of solvent to hydrate the HCG and dilute it to the right strength for injection. Bacteriostatic water is perfect for mixing your HCG for the HCG Diet Protocol by Dr. Simeons.

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.]

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.
