I am a 60 year-old man who began the injectable HCG weight loss
program 3 years ago.
I have arthritis in both knees and one has very little cartilage left. As a result I was in too much pain to exercise. I have poor willpower in eating.
I had tried all the other plans- Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers, Suger Busters, etc. with NO success. I am 6'2" and at the time weighed in at 292.4 pounds.
In 15 months I lost 69#. I have no skin folds from the loss. I went from a tight size 50 to size 42 pants.
I can now walk vigorously, play golf and conduct a normal life style. I no longer need a leg brace or cane to walk.
My cholesterol has gone down 40-50 points, BP is 110/64, sugar is 96.
I feel like a new man. I have gained 20# back, but have gone back on the plan and already lost 7#.
This program is a life-saver!
Dear Dr. Belluscio
I am a former HCG user. I gained 30lbs after being diagnosed with Grave's disease and tried everything to get it off. The only thing that worked for me was this shot. I lost 27lbs from 19 Jan to 9 Mar. I kept using this shot to keep my weight off and felt so good while I was using it. I was in Korea the time, but now I am in the states and can't find it anywhere. Could you please help me to find this. I don't care if it is injection or oral.
I was a patient who took HCG in the early 1970s and not only lost
weight, but also experienced the Changes in body contour. That was a
big issue for me, and I always believed that HCG was the One diet
program that accomplished that. I was therefore very interested in
your recent study on Oral HCG. (The 70s programs used injections).
|I have a friend who did the HCG diet several
years ago and is interested in doing it again. She would like info on
the closest Dr. or clinic that is doing this to date, She lives in
McMinnville, Tn. Thanks
I am interested in your work with oral hCG. I used the injectable in my
weight loss program years ago with great success. Do you have a source for
oral hCG? Wentworth
|Please tell me how to get oral HCG. I took HCG
by injection in California 12 years ago with amazing results. Please

I have had successful results using the hCG by injection but I did not complete the treatment since we now live two hours from a clinic.
I am hopeful that there is a clinic that will offer oral hCG so that I can go to the clinic on a weekly basis. We live two hours from Atlanta, Asheville and Chattanooga areas. I lost weight while feeling great when taking injections. Please help with information on how to obtain oral hCG. debbie
Dear Dr. Belluscio, I am a gynecologist practicing
in Miami, FL. Several years ago, I started ahCG weight loss program which
has been very effective. Charles L.
I have read with interest your study regarding the use of HCG re treatment of
your obese patients.
I am a doctor in the Philippines and have a weight loss center wherein I have used HCG for my obese patients. I have combined the HCG treatments with a controlled diet and the results have been very gratifying for both my patients and myself.
I have not been informed of the availability of HCG in pill form. Where would that be available and is there a study that has presently used this oral HCG method?
I would be very interested to hear from you or if you can direct me to any more information regarding HCG in pill form.
I would like to hear from you regarding this matter. Thank you for your very interesting website. JOSIE .
|Dear sir/madam My wife had been using hCG for
several years while we lived in California USA to keep her weight
under control, but NOW that we are in a different state (Oregon USA)
she can not find any doctor who knows about this product to help
control weight or who will prescribe it for her. Can you help? We both
know it works (but ONLY if you have it) RSVP Jones
Dr. Daniel Belluscio:I am looking for physician in or

Please advise. Rita
|I used HCG through a clinic in 1972 - it was
administered in small doses by injection. My results were incredible
and I felt wonderful during the treatment. Is there any clinic
currently using HCG in Northern California?
I have been searching the net for any information on the use of HCG and this was the first site that offered any promise. daf
|Dear Dr. Belluscio:
I am an R.N. who has had a weight problem all of my life. I'm now 48 years of age, but when I was only 19 years old I went to a physician who used Dr. Simeon's method of HCG weight reduction. It worked beautifully for me, and I used it off and on with equal success throughout the years....
Though I was only 19, and did not understand the biochemistry of what I was reading, much of it stayed with me all these years. I would like to show this work to a physician I now work with but I've been unable to find it. Do you know where and how I can get a copy? Many thanks,Nancy
|I have been on the HCG diet before,
however I administered it by injection, not orally. I would like to
go on this diet again, but would like to try the oral method. The
physician who provided me with the HCG is no longer in practice and
I have been unable to find anyone else who supports this diet. Can I
obtain the HCG from you or can you suggest a physician in the
Sacramento, Stockton or Fresno, California area? Thank you in
advance for your response. Diana
|In 1972 I was treated by a physician in New Orleans for obesity. He
was a dermatologist that I had visited for an allergic reaction to a
medication that I was taking. He told me about this weight loss
program he ran out of his office. I was very interested. I weighed 195
Over a period of 6 weeks I lost 37 lbs. I weighed in at 158 lbs. after my last injection. I did gain about 8-10 lbs. back during the first year. ...
Even at 500 calories a day, this was the easiest diet I ever followed. After the first week I even found myself offering to share my 1/2 cup of strawberries with my husband one night after dinner.
I never felt hungry, irritable, deprived and had more energy than I've ever had in my life.
Just thought I'd share this with you. I would like to lose weight. I am now 50 years old and weigh 230 lbs. Jackie
|I used hCG many years ago and experienced
great results. Two children later I am interested in using it again.
Can you direct me in where I might be able to purchase hCG and the
correct usage. Thanks krentel
|Dear Dr. Belluscio, I was wondering if you had any information about
HCG clinics in my area. I'm currently living in San Jose CA.
I first tried the HCG treatment in Florida in the mid 80's and had tremendous success. I had kept the weight off for over 6 years. After moving to the Midwest and suffering through unbelievable winters, I had packed on 60 lbs in 7 years.....
After two years, 3 doctors, and 5 other diets, I have not been able to significantly lose weight or convince my doctors out here to prescribe for me the HCG so I could continue the program at home.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sincerely, LoIacono "
|3 years ago in Florida, I went to a
weight-loss clinic that allowed me to administer HCG shots in
combination with a low-fat, low-cal diet and appetite suppressants. I
lost over 30 lbs. I had a baby 9 months ago and need to lose about 25

this type of program. I live in Wiggins, MS 39577. Any suggestions? I
am desperate. Please help. rnj .rnj@....
|Can hCG be prescribed and if so is
there a doctor in my area? I had the shots about 10 years ago and it
really did work, but I have had several back surgeries since then

|Just finished reading the article on HCG. In
the early 70's I was introduced to HCG by my family doctor. I was on a
low caloric (500) daily diet with a shot of HCG daily. I was amazed at
the loss in weight and the changes to my body shape also. I have
wanted to look into this again. Are there any studies ongoing now? I
understand HCG was banned? Or was I miss informed? Thanks for your
help, Cindy..... "

|Hi, I live in Southern California and was wondering where I can find HCG here
in Calif. I took HCG injections several years ago, and have been trying to
find someone who stills handles the HCG. CHERRIER
In my experience the use of Chorionic Gonadotrophin in the treatment of obesity have an effect on weight loss, however your article is the first one I have found in which than effect is significant. I would like to receive more information of the issue is possible. Simon .
|In Florida, back in 1986
I went through hCG shots to lose weight. I lost 26 lbs in 2 months and
felt the best I ever had in my life. When I had my second child, in 1989,
I went back and lost the weight again. I am now in Texas and I am looking
for this again. I am unable to find anyone who knows what I am talking
|I used the hCG injections myself for weight loss.
I had never had results of any kind from any other weight loss program. I went from 165# to 127# in less than 4 months. I not only lost on the scales, but i lost inches in my bra size, my neck, my arms, legs, waist and hips; everywhere.
I was amazing! and it was incredibly easy! I did, however go off of the injections "cold turkey" and my metabolism hit rock bottom, back to its usual.

|Dear Drs: Some years ago, due to a variety of reasons, my wife found herself having gained 45 lbs....she connected to a clinic in So. Calif. (where we then lived) who put her on a program of
very low diet and self-injections of hCG. In about 3 1/2 months she took off nearly all the weight.
Alan & Dominique...
I would like to share with you my own experience. 7 years ago I was really sick. I had Chronic neuropathy, low testosterone, etc. I went to many doctors and even a major medical hospital in Houston, Tx. A couple of doctors injected me with testosterone, but that did nothing for me.
I finally (3 years ago) saw a doctor in Pennsylvania who ran test on growth hormone and hcg. I had no natural growth hormone, and my pituitary gland was very sluggish. He started me on injections of hCGand HGH both. I get about 2000 units of hCG every other day as well as the Human growth hormone. My health is greatly improved now.
The sad thing is that many doctors refuse to even look at therapies that might help their patients. I would be interested in your own opinions as you seem to be opened minded. Andrew
|I am so glad to find your site. A couple years
ago, a friend of mine told me about hCG. She had considerable success
over an 18 month period. I reviewed the research published by A.T.W.
Simeons, MD. and began a diet program with hCG self injected each day.
I completed 3 phases, each a 6 week hCG course followed by 6, 8 and 12
weeks of maintenance. I began at a weight of 237 pounds and I lost a
total of 46 pounds after approximately 1 year. I had no side effects,
felt great and increased my energy. I was able to begin weight
training at the YMCA. I am a very strong and active woman of 45--SCUBA
diver, league bowler, traveler and hiker.
My doctor relocated and reduced his practice to no longer provide hCG. I was unable to continue my plan to lose a total of 80 pounds. Since ending the program, I have slowly gained 20 pounds back over a period of 2 years. This is a success story for me as every diet I have ever tried in the past resulted with a regain of at least 30% more than I lost. Yo-yo dieting is not something I want to do again.
I, and a close friend who also enjoyed success on this program with me, would like to return to hCG as soon a possible. We find it really odd that it is so hard to find someone to provide this treatment. As a suspicious person, I might think that a powerful lobbying effort is against a truly effective diet. After all, isn't the diet industry over $3 billion? Regards, Marra
|Dear Dr. I am a past success story of HCG. I lost over 75
pounds about 12 years ago. I am currently fighting to limit my
weight gain but can see I am with age finding it much harder. I
would like to know if you have information as to a location
where I can get back on this program. Sincerely Sara Riverside,
|I read your article on HCG and obesity with
great interest. Fifteen years ago, I was overweight (not obese) and
sought medical treatment from a physician in Huntington, West
Virginia, USA,in order to lose weight. Part of his program was the
injection 3 times per week of HCG. I lost weight quickly and looked
and felt fabulous.......Thanks. --- trace
|My sister had an injection of hCG many years ago and lost about 30
lbs in a month, my doctor never even heard of it. Do you know where I
can get an injection? I live in Central California, the San Joaquin
Valley between Sacramento and Fresno.
Because of medication they were giving me I have gained 60 lbs over 2yrs and cannot get it off. I'm 55. Sharon .
I am one of those who used HCG many years ago to lose weight. It was indeed the most effective and successful weight loss program I have ever done. I would very much like to use HCG again. Do you know anyone in Hawaii using it, or is there a Dr. here who will get it for me? Can I acquire the oral form you have developed directly from you? Please, please. I will appreciate any assistance you can offer. Thank you very much. Alyse @.......
|Dear Dr Dan, I used the hCG program in the eighties for weight loss.
It worked like a miracle!!!
I am a RN now living in Littleton Colorado. Is there any clinic or place around my area that has the hCG program? If not can I purchase oral or IM or sq forms? Any information would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank You Marie. @..........
|Dear Doctor, I have used this program very
successfully for weight loss that's so easy and it makes you feel
great. It lowers cholesterol and blood sugar. I've moved to a new

or Orlando, Florida. Thank you for your help. Gayle.

|Dear Dr. Belluscio,
About 20 years ago moving from Ca to Calgary, the change of climate, lack of friends, different working and living conditions, etc. caused me to gain some 25 pounds over my normal 120. With the HCG treatment I lost the weight, had good muscle tone, good skin, energy etc.
I want to get again the same treatment. Do you know any doctors in Calgary, Alberta, or in northern California offering this treatment? I will be very grateful for any suggestions. Sonia S.
In 1975, I paid for a program to lose weight that included hcg injections and diet. In a very short period of time, approximately two months, I lost around 30 pounds, as well as significant inches over my whole body (neck included).
I was very satisfied with hcg, and other than one morning experiencing something like morning sickness, I felt fine the whole time I was taking the shots. As far as I know, I had no other side effects. I would be delighted to try this diet again. Can you help me. Sincerely, Mikki
|Thank you. I very successfully completed this program
about 16 years ago. I lost about 35 pounds, going from 160 to 125, at
age 40 . I was on the program 2 months. I was not hungry. I did sometimes
eat extra vegetables.
However, this is a strict program only for the sincere and serious. It is not possible to have any result at all, zero zip, if a person cheats or makes exceptions.......
On the program I felt so very healthy and energetic and just wonderful. I maintained the weight loss about 5 years, then, with stress, gradually regained. I am a 56 year old mental health professional. I have been searching for this program again. I am again 160. Other metabolic pills and high protein diets have not been successful.
Please, please can you assist me in being able to participate in this program again. I cannot begin to tell you...an answer to prayer.
I would even administer the shots myself. I live near Gainesville, Florida and work near Ocala. I believe I could find other interested persons. Thank you for your interest and research. I believe this is successful and helpful and improves self esteem. A contribution to people in need. Please quote me. Joy ..
