How Does hCG Work?

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a naturally occurring hormone that’s found at its highest levels during pregnancy in women. HCG has many functions, but one of its primary roles is to help your body utilize energy from the foods you eat. By increasing your hCG levels, you can stimulate your metabolism and trigger the processing of fat.

When combined with a specially designed hCG diet, the plan not only helps you burn fat, it also helps stabilize your appetite. This can further help curb those cravings and promote weight loss success.  

What is the hCG Diet Plan?

Your personalized hCG diet plan involves taking hCG throughout the day. Though injections are the traditional way to get your hCG, Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness also offers alternative forms, such as oral drops.

You also have to follow a strict diet plan for optimal success. The general hCG diet plan is described below:

  • Loading Phase: For about 48 before starting your hCG diet plan, you “load up” on fat and carbohydrates. It’s important to eat high-calorie foods, ideally those that are high in healthy fat, to prepare your body for the dieting phase.
  • Weight Loss Phase: During the main phase of the hCG diet plan, you take your hCG medication as recommended by your physician at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness. They design a diet plan that includes two primary meals per day: lunch and dinner. Your hCG-friendly meals can include a lean protein, non-starchy vegetables, bread, and fruit. During the weight loss phase, which lasts up to six weeks, you’re limited to roughly 500-800 total calories daily.
  • Maintenance Phase: The maintenance phase is your way to transition back into a healthful eating plan, without your hCG medication. Once your weight loss phase is over, your dedicated physician at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness designs eating plans that gradually increase your food intake over the following days and weeks. It’s important to avoid starch and sugar for at least three weeks during this time.


You may need to complete more than one hCG cycle if you need to lose more weight. The team at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness supports you every step of the way, so you can achieve your weight loss goals healthfully.

How Much Weight Can I Lose on hCG?

Although most physician-supervised diet plans at Dr. G’s Weight Loss & Wellness result in a gradual weight loss of at least one to two pounds per week, one of the reasons hCG is so popular is because you can lose even more weight.

Some men and women who are regimented about their hCG diet plan lose up to five to seven pounds per week. But as long as you’re steadily losing around one to two pounds each week, you’re on a healthy path to achieving your weight loss goals.
