Frequently Asked Questions

What Is the Simeon’s HCG Weight Loss Program?

In 1954, Dr. Simeon’s discovered that a natural hormone found in the body called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) could accelerate fat mobilization from certain area of the body when combined with Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD). It is proposed that HCG has the effect of “unlocking” the body’s fat stores so that metabolism can burn these energy reserves to power daily bodily functions. The special component to weight loss with HCG is that it is a muscle-sparing form of weight loss. A benefit to the use to HCG is that it releases about 1500-4000 calories a day into your system thus preventing hunger and preventing the body from entering starvation mode.

What is the aim of the program?

This program will address and correct low metabolism, intense and constant hunger, food cravings and emotional eating.

What does the program consist of?

This program consists of a structured low calorie diet coupled with the use of pharmaceutical grade HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), a natural hormone only available by prescription from a licensed medical provider. The HCG will be taken for a period of 26 day or 40 days, depending on the amount of weight to be lost. Also, included are weekly visits and coaching with our nutrition and fitness coach which will continue through the 6 week maintenance period. These can be done in office (preferable), or by phone if necessary. *It will be necessary for your to be present in the office for the initial set up of the program.

Who would be a good candidate for this program?

  • Patients with 15+ pounds to lose or those over 30% of body fat
  • Patients who are capable of sticking to a highly structured and monitored weight loss program
  • Patients who are obese and have several health risks related to obesity

What’s the first step?

The first step is scheduling an appointment for a consultation with the nutrition and fitness coach at Terry L. Franklin, M.D. This appointment will explain the program in detail, decide if you are a candidate, answer any questions you may have, and provide you with a manual for the program, should you decide to start. If you decide to begin, the program will be set up for you that day or may be scheduled to return based on when you decide to being the diet. At this point you will choose your form of HCG (sublingual pill or injections) and your calorie level (your nutrition and fitness coach will help you decide the appropriate caloric level for you). *It is MANDATORY that all patients have a brief physical exam in our office, and current labs either from our office or recent labs from another provider outside of our office may be acceptable (to be determined by a Terry L. Franklin, M.D. provider).

What is the cost of the program?

The total cost of the program is $850 for the long program (40 days of HCG plus 6 weeks of maintenance), or $650 for the short program (26 days of HCG plus 6 weeks of maintenance). Note: There is an additional charge of $50 for sublingual. The HCG is factored into the cost of the program as well as select supplements. Supplements included are Daily Two Multi Vitamins, Purebiotic and Pink Salt.

What kind of results can I expect?

The average weight loss on the LONG HCG program (40 days) is 20-25 pounds for women and 25-30 pounds for men. For the SHORT HCG program (26 days), women can expect a 10-15 pound loss and men a 20-25 pound loss. Results will vary by individual based on the program adherence, gender, body fat ratio, and individual metabolic rate. The average rate of weight loss is half a pound to one pound per day. We have not found any significant difference in rate loss between the sublingual form versus the injections.

Before and After

Actual patient lost 24 pounds in 40 days and 7 inches of her waist and hips.


*Results may vary from person to person and are not guaranteed.

Will I gain weight back when I am done with the program?

As with any weight loss program, if the maintenance protocol is not followed as directed, weight gain may result. However, if properly followed, most patients enjoy lasting weight loss. During the 6 week maintenance phase, you will work closely with your nutrition and fitness coach to re-establish the body’s new set-point weight and correct the metabolism. The maintenance phase is an essential part of the HCG diet program and should never be skipped.
