At Ultimate Weight Loss Solutions there is never a wrong question to ask. If we happen to not know your answer to your question, then we will find out for you. Here is a list of all of our products and the most common questions to all.
FAQ about the hCG Program:
What is hCG and how does it work?
hCG is a natural hormone produced in the body. It has many functions and is used medically to treat a variety of conditions. It is the pregnancy hormone. This hormone allows the body to metabolize fat and use it as energy for both mother and fetus. This acts as a "fail-safe" mechanism when energy is needed immediately. For weight loss, we use only a very small amount of hCG to capitalize on this same mechanism.
Is hCG Safe?
hCG is extremely safe. Women may experience very high levels during pregnancy with no adverse affects. Currently there
are no known established clinical side effects to homeopathic remedies and medicines but as with any diet we recommend
that you consult with a doctor before starting this diet and if you have any swelling, shortness of breath, dizziness or heavy
redness consult a doctor or medical professional immediately.
Is hCG safe for men?
The hCG hormone is naturally present in men. It is found in every human tissue, including males, pregnant women, and
non-pregnant women. Men get even faster results and tend to lose more weight than women.
If hCG works so well for weight loss, why don't pregnant women lose weight?
hCG works to mobilize fat for utilization by the body only when there is a significant decrease in calories and fat. For weight loss, a very low calorie diet of all the right foods is used to trigger hCG to help rid the body of fat.
Will my metabolism slow down if I am on a very low calorie diet?
It is true that normally when cutting back on calories and fat, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is used in conjunction with the hCG, the hormone signals the body to used stored fat for energy, and will eliminate excess fat reserves. It is a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result. The hCG keeps the body from going into starvation mode and holding onto fat as it resets your metabolism.
Wouldn't I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet without hCG?
You can lose weight simply by eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier, as well as decrease bone density and muscle mass. By using hCG with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated; the low calorie diet is vital in preventing immediate refilling of emptied fat cells. You benefit by preferentially getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bone and muscle.
With hCG you can lose the weight quickly and keep it off!
The hCG diet is very low calorie, will I get hungry?
It is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days. This will pass and by the second week you will find your servings to be satisfying. Because hCG mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking lots of the green tea all day (we like the cold fruity sweet one sweetened with stevia) helps a ton as a natural appetite suppressant and your energy level. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the
Will hCG interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera injections?
hCG formulas do not interact with ANY medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera.
Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking hCG?
Because the amount ofhCG is so small, there are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, hCG will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant. It is best to avoid starting the hCG diet if you are within 5-6 days of your menstrual period. Wait until after your menstrual period is complete to start hCG. Once on hCG and you have a menstrual cycle, you can maintain the diet and continue taking hCG.
What about pregnancy and taking hCG?
If you are pregnant do not take hCG. If you become pregnant during the hCG diet, stop taking hCG and consult your OB-GYN.
How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?
People will lose around 15-25 pounds on the 23 day program. Everyone is different. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have and how much weight needs to be lost. Often, people lose 7-10 lbs in the first week.
Does the weight loss slow down after the first two weeks?
Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a plateau or leveling off of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.
Is it ok to skip a meal or protein at one of my meals?
NO! Never skip any of your meals. It's important to eat all of your 500 calories and especially your protein so that you lose fat and not muscle.
Can I exercise daily?
No exercise! Or if you must exercise, low key exercise only. You can do about 20 min. of walking a day and a few sit ups or push-ups if you feel that is needed. Exercise burns calories and therefore causes your hunger to increase. The combination of low calorie intake and exercise could cause your body to go into starvation mode. This can negatively impact your stamina and commitment to the diet. So take it easy. And remember, you will be losing fat. So when you do go back to the gym, it's a skinner, more energetic you!
Do I have to take vitamins while doing this diet?
We recommend taking Bl2 every week. The Vitamin Injection ofB12 is the recommended B supplement because it is in liquid form and is absorbed right in your system. This will increase with energy and increase your metabolism. Also a good Multi Vitamin helps, make sure it is sugar free and has no fat soluble ingredients like fish oils or vitamin D. Potassium is also good especially if you experience leg cramps (which can be common while on this diet). Calcium/magnesium combo is also a good one to take if needed.
Is it normal to get a headache during the first week?
Some people may experience light headaches during the first week, this is because your body is releasing fat cells very rapidly and you will be going through a major detoxification. You may take an Aspirin or Tylenol as long as it's not sugar coated.
Can I Drink Alcohol on the hCG Diet?
In the original hCG diet protocol by Dr. Simeons, it does not mention or account for alcohol. It has found that some hCG Users whom have been drinkers or even those that are borderline alcoholic, do surprisingly well on the hCG diet. If the simple instructions are followed correctly, the hCG diet will get them out of their drinking routine. These users have even said that they don't even feel the need to drink while on the hCG diet because hCG works with the hypothalamus gland which controls the emotional eating/drinking part of the brain, along with other aspects.
Can I wear makeup?
The answer is yes. However try to avoid lotions, moisturizers or liquid make-ups with oil. HCG is very sensitive to oils, creams and fats. These could slow the weight loss process down; you only want it to target your stored fat You can use any mineral makeup or pressed powders and of course oil free foundations are fme. Other types of eye makeup and lipstick are fine. Stay away from lip glosses and Chapstick If your lips get dry the protocol says to use Carmex. It also says if needed you can use mineral oil (baby oil) if needed as a moisturizer.
What do I do if my weight loss plateaus?
If the weight loss slows try the following: Increase water consumption (try to drink 112-1 gallon a day) and or green tea consumption Eliminate the fruits from two to one per day . If mixing vegetables, stop. Check all condiments for sugar content If having constipation problems, try a laxative tea. This is usually very effective. It is not uncommon on this diet to have a bowel movement once every 3-4 days, if provided you are consuming plenty of fluids. This has not lead to any disruptions. If weight loss has hit a plateau for more than 5-6 days an "apple day" may be observed. In an Apple day you
consume 6 apples within 24 hours with nothing else to eat or drink except water.

How much hCG should I take daily?
It depends. If you're following Dr. Simeon's protocol, he recommends 125iu daily for almost everyone. Kevin Trudeau recommends 175-200iu daily. Some customers prefer to "split the middle" and take 150iu per day. If you are still undecided, we suggest sticking with Dr. Simeons' protocol or what our doctor recommends.
Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with hCG shots?
hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from unhealthy fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, hCG dieters report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual.
What is the difference between homeopathic HCG drops and HCG injections?
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. 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. Homeopathic HCG is produced by taking pure full strength HCG 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. This is also the reason homeopathic HCG drops will not show positive on a pregnancy test. 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 are very successful when put to work in the human body. This has certainly been the case with homeopathic HCG used in the HCG diet program. If you are in doubt, read our real-life HCG weight loss success stories. They were the result of a very straightforward customer survey which also revealed what you can expect for average results not just the greatest success stories.
