What is the HCG Diet? Exploring the Basics
If you’ve been wondering what the HCG diet is, you’ve come to the right place. Pharmacy Rx Solutions is a licensed U.S. compounding pharmacy that is permitted to distribute HCG and other related products. Our HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a pregnancy hormone that is believed to help jumpstart weight loss.
The concept of following an HCG diet for weight loss comes from a study performed by Dr. ATW Simeons in the 1950s. Simeons was a British doctor who studied the effects of HCG – namely its effect on metabolism – on overweight men and women.
The study claims that his patients lost weight by:
- Eating a strict, very low calorie diet (VLCD)
- Taking specifically measured HCG injections each day for a period of time
- Drinking plenty of water
- Avoiding sugars, starches, artificial sweeteners, and other specific foods
Once he published his findings in “Pounds and Inches,” the Dr. Simeons HCG diet was released to the public. Though HCG is available in a variety of forms, Pharmacy Rx Solutions is approved to dispense injectable HCG.
