Optimal hCG

Another hCG drop product promoting the controversial diet.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Optimal hCG is a product available for those following the hCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin diet. HCG is a hormone produced in the pituitary glands of men and women of all ages. Like many other hCG products available, Optimal hCG offers you the ability to burn fat fast, boost your metabolism and energy, cleanse and purify your body, and claims to help you keep the weight off. Optimal hCG comes in the form of drops rather than the injection form of hCG. The Optimal hCG Diet System comes with the drops, over 1,000 recipes, access to an online forum and audio books. There are client testimonials available on the web site showcasing before and after photos of those that have had success using the product.

Despite the many concerns listed with the popular hCG diet and various hCG products, there continues to be an interest in these programs. The FDA has stated that the weight loss claims associated with the hCG diet are fraudulent. Apparently there is no evidence that hCG is an effective method of weight loss.

PRO
  • Can offer quick, temporary weight loss
  • Safer than injections of hCG
CON
  • FDA has called weight loss claims associated with hCG fraudulent
  • No evidence that hCG drops are effective
  • Requires eating a severely restricted diet of 500 calories each day
  • Side effects unknown
  • Diet is highly controversial
INGREDIENTS
  • Purified water
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin
ADMINISTRATION

Proper instructions on taking this product are included with your Optimal hCG purchase.

DIET and EXERCISE

Taking the Optimal hCG drops will require that you eat only 500 calories per day. This is so that your body can use your fat reserves as energy. The drops are supposed to give you energy and enable you to eat such a small caloric intake without feeling faint or hungry throughout the day. There are over 1,000 recipes included with your purchase of Optimal hCG which will all be items you can eat while using the drops. Exercise is not recommended while on this diet because your daily calorie intake is so low. You likely will not have the energy required to make it through a workout. Most hCG products also claim that the weight loss is so great, you won’t need exercise.

CONCLUSION

Optimal hCG does not appear to be any different than other hCG products available. The diet seems to be very popular although many doctors, dieticians and other diet and nutrition experts have spoken out against it. Even the FDA has called all weight loss claims assisted with hCG fraudulent. Some who have used the product have lost large amounts of weight, but that is likely due to the diet of 500 calories which starves the body of important nutrients and fuel. Those that want to seriously lose weight and keep it off would do well to steer clear of these types of fad diets.
