The HCG Diet Plan is a medical hormone diet that involves taking a small dosage of HCG hormone while following a low calorie diet. The average reported weight loss is .5 to .8 lb per day. I am a big believer of HCG because it produces the best results with the least amount of effort.

What is The Original HCG Diet Plan?

The Original HCG Diet Plan was first published in 1954, by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a medical doctor out of Rome, Italy.  His manuscript, “Pounds and Inches” was first published in 1954 with several revisions over the years. The original protocol calls for a small dosage of HCG hormone administered through injections, and a rigid 500 calorie food list (VLCD very low calorie diet) and little room for variety.  Since then however, the original protocol has evolved based on modern research, technology and even the availability of new food and supplement options.  Dr. Simeons’ protocol insisted that exercise was not necessary for his protocol.

Today, the most commonly followed protocols are based on the original HCG Diet with a few improvements that not only make the diet easier, but also benefit overall health and future weight maintenance.  Common modern adjustments to this protocol include using HCG Drops or HCG Pellets in place of HCG injections.  Homeopathic HCG is used as well, although these do not have actual HCG hormone in them and are commonly reported to have different results than protocols with REAL HCG hormone.  Exercise is also implemented, and the food list is adjusted to include food options that still fit the defined limits of Simeons original diet.
