Diet Doc Clears up Consumer Misconceptions About the hCG Diet

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - April 13, 2017) - In 2009, nationally-recognized medical weight loss program -- Diet Doc, determined that the hCG diet was unfit to use for weight loss purposes based on in-house clinical trials conducted by their team of medical professionals. The hCG diet's corresponding 500-calorie requirement was also a cause for concern, as reputable doctors are highly unlikely to sign off on such an extreme reduction in calories (even for obese patients). Since the finding, the medical community at large has come to the same conclusion regarding the hCG diet based on a few key points that dieters who are considering it should be aware of:

  • Over-the-counter (OTC) hCG Drops that are sold without a doctor's prescription has been condemned by the FDA for false advertising, which is in violation of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) policies on false advertising for weight loss products.
  • Most companies that claim to sell hCG products are actually selling hormone-free products, that lack traceable quantities of the human chorionic gonadotropin -- hCG hormone.
  • Medical experts have found that weight loss results are due to the diet's low-calorie intake, not the hormone itself.
  • hCG can have very dangerous side effects such as: pulmonary embolisms, depression, cardiovascular issues, muscle loss and more.
  • Since the hCG diet is based primarily on caloric restriction, once the diet is finished, all weight lost is likely to return.

Any individual who is interested in the hCG diet should instead consider other prescription-based options that are both safe and are proven to work.
