FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)What is the HCG Diet?
Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a specialist on obesity and weight regulation, introduced a program that has helped many people overcome weight loss resistance. The program utilizes a natural hormone that is produced during pregnancy called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). Dr. Simeons' theory is that HCG causes the hypothalamus area of the brain to trigger a release of abnormal fat stores.
The hypothalamus is a part of the diencephalon area of our brain. This is the vital part of the brain which controls all of the autonomic functions of the body, including breathing, heart beat, digestion, sleep and the complex functions of the endocrine system. One of the many functions of the endocrine system is regulation and control of your metabolism and weight.
The HCG diet program has helped thousands of people lose those stubborn pounds. As a result of the weight loss, many patients have also experienced many other health benefits, including a drop in cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar.
Our program utilizes Dr. Simeons' dietary plan plus Nano Diet Drops, an HCG-free alternative. Read the fascinating story of how Nano Diet Drops were developed on this page.
Does this program work for everyone?
No weight loss program is guaranteed to work for everyone, but this program has a VERY high success rate. Based on our customer surveys, 94.2% of participants lose at least 0.4 lbs per day (almost 3 lbs per week). The average is 0.7 lbs per day (or roughly 5 pounds per week). A single course lasts 3 to 4 weeks, after which you take a break. If you are one of the few who are not satisfied, we have you covered with a 100% refund guarantee -- unlike doctors, clinics, pharmacies or websites who wouldn't refund a dime if a treatment or prescription didn't work. So you can give the HealthyHCG diet a try with confidence in how well it is working, and at the same time you are covered by our guarantee!
What is the difference between Nano Diet Drops and prescription HCG?
This is best answered on this page.
What is homeopathy or homeopathic medicine?
Again please be sure to read this page for an explanation of homeopathy as it relates to Nano Diet Drops.
Homeopathy is the second most widely used system of medicine in the world. It has been the primary medical system of choice for a great number of people in other countries for many years, with the allopathic methods being their secondary choice. (Allopathic healthcare is what we have here in the United States, which relies on pharmaceutical drugs and surgical procedures.) Homeopathics have been used for many years to very effectively bring about healing and better health without the negative consequences and side effects that allopathic methods often have. Its popularity in the United States has grown dramatically over the last decade because homeopathy is effective, all natural and safe. It is widely accepted that there are no dangerous side effects with homeopathic remedies, and they can be taken along with other medications without worrying about adverse reactions.
Homeopathic formulations function on the theory of "like heals like" and that a very small amount of the active ingredient brings about change, because of the unique way homeopathic products are produced. The ingredients in Nano Diet Drops are produced by taking ingredients known at full strength to cause symptoms you are trying to eliminate, and making it into a sublingual mixture through a process of dilution and succussion. True homeopathic products, when tested in a typical lab, will come back negative for the active ingredient because the ingredient actually exists as a unique energy signature or imprint in the carrier liquid that cannot be measured chemically. It is important to realize that physical elements interact and affect each other in more ways than just chemically. Homeopathic products have continually baffled the American Medical Association when they fail in their chemical lab tests, yet still end up working in the human body.
Another difference is the method of administration. Nano Diet Drops (like many other homeopathic formulations) are placed under the tongue, an area rich in capillaries, where it is absorbed into the bloodstream. Our product is manufactured in an FDA registered laboratory in the United States, and is prepared per the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States. It does not require a prescription. HCG injections, on the other hand, must be prescribed by a doctor and are administered by a shot into your muscle tissue. The cost of injections obviously is much higher due to the involvement of the doctor and clinic.
Do I have to follow a special diet while I take Nano Diet Drops?
Nobody is forcing you, but yes, that is part of the program :) Nano Diet Drops were formulated specifically for the the HCG diet protocol. This protocol was described by Dr. Simeons' in his manuscript, "Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity", where he outlines a special low calorie diet that was tested on thousands of patients. Dr. Simeons prescribed a 500 calorie diet, but we also provide instructions for a higher calorie option. Taking Nano Diet Drops alone to help weight control efforts is perfectly acceptable but would require taking them over a longer period of time to observe results. Also see the next two questions.
What food am I allowed to eat?
The HCG diet is balanced, unlike many extreme "fad" diets out there. It consists of a healthy variety of protein, vegetables and fruit, with a small amount of starch. You eat them in specific portions and combinations as outlined by Dr. Simeons. Allowed proteins are veal (low grade), beef (95% lean whole cuts), chicken breast (boneless, skinless), crab, crayfish, lobster, shrimp, and any fresh, white-fleshed fish. Allowed vegetables are asparagus, beet greens, cabbage, celery, chard, chicory greens, cucumber, fennel, green salad, onion, red radishes, spinach, and tomato. Allowed fruits are apples, strawberries, oranges, and grapefruit. Limited starches include grissini (breadstick) or Melba toast. Vegetarian protein substitutions (may slow weight loss) are a protein shake, soy patty, egg (1 whole 3 egg whites), cottage cheese or fat-free milk.
Why can't I just go on a 500 calorie diet without Nano Diet Drops?
You can, of course. No one is stopping you :) But if you're like most people, you wouldn't want to. If you agree with Dr. Simeons' HCG theory and our connecting theory of Nano Diet Drops (read here) then you'll follow in the footsteps of all of our successful customers who have used both the drops and the diet plan. In other words, they followed the precise protocol already laid out for you. Nano Diet Drops have many homeopathic-based benefits that you would miss out on. Try it and see for yourself.
Will I be hungry?
The vast majority of our customers indicate they were either not hungry (unlike other diets where they were starving), or they felt in control and surprisingly little hunger and had plenty of energy. That aligns perfectly with Dr. Simeons' theories. Everyone is different -- and some report mild hunger in the first week as their body adjusts -- but it has become very clear that the Healthy HCG diet plan is something very special, something out of the ordinary. People who faithfully follow the protocol as outlined by Dr. Simeons in our materials, and stick to it will see fantastic results. All you have to do is give it a try (we have a money-back guarantee).
Do I have to exercise?
No. Exercise is not a mandatory part of the program. While vigorous exercise *might* increase the amount of weight you lose while on this plan, it would not be significant and is not recommended because on a 500 calorie diet you can easily become too exhausted. That leads to discouragement and frustration. However, we do recommend moderate activity for all of the other benefits you receive, including stress relief and cardiovascular health.
If you are already accustomed to exercising at a certain level and would like to continue, do so, but do not over do it. Pay attention to your body's response. Scale down the intensity of the workouts if: (1) you don't have the energy to get through it; (2) you start feeling ill or light headed; (3) you gain weight the next day; or (4) you don't have the energy to get through the day after you work out.
Our suggestion for those who want to exercise is that you walk for 20 to 30 minutes daily. Walking is great exercise and contributes to your health in a variety of ways. It helps relieve stress, keeps the bowels moving, conditions your cardiovascular system, and encourages better blood/oxygen circulation. When you are are finished with the HCG diet regimen and are back on a regular diet you can then pick up the intensity of your exercise routines.
