HCG and Weight Loss: What is the HCG diet protocol …

What about over-the-counter HCG and HCG diet drops?

The FDA has taken a strong stance on over-the-counter homeopathic HCG products like oral pills, lozenges, drops and sprays that are marketed for weight loss. They have issued seven warnings to companies making false claims that their supplement causes weight loss. At this time, all drug products that include homeopathic HCG are considered by the FDA to be marketed illegally.

Vegetarians should expect about one-half the weight loss on the HCG protocol as compared to those who eat meat. Vegetarians on the HCG diet protocol must drink 500 milliliters of skim milk daily for protein intake, but milk has sugar, which the unaltered protocol is quite low in. Beans, wheat and nuts are not allowed on the HCG diet plan, so vegans cannot safely participate, as they would have too little protein intake.

Before we let you go, we need to leave you with one last warning. Like all medications, HCG has side effects. Those on the HCG protocol can also experience consequences from the very low-calorie diet itself. Side effects from the HCG diet protocol can include blood clotting, gallbladder stones and attacks, electrolyte problems, fatigue, and depression. If a blood clot travels to the lungs, a pulmonary embolism can occur, which can result in cardiac arrest and death.
