DIY HCG was the first online company to sell HCG drops and has continued to work with our customers to bring them the best and most reliable HCG drops and HCG diet information. We use HCG that is manufactured in the United States and that is held to the highest standards in homeopathic supplement creation. Plus, we make sure to give you ONLY products and information that adhere 100% to Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript: Pounds and Inches, A New Approach to Obesity because we want to make sure that you have only the highest success rate possible while taking the journey of the HCG diet.

If you don’t already know, Dr. Simeons was an Italian doctor in the 60’s who formulated the HCG diet process. He worked with obese patients of all ages for over 20 years to create the perfect formula for the HCG diet to allow maximum weight loss and maintenance. He tried many, many things before releasing only those that worked in his manuscript for other medical professionals to see. However, since the diet was discovered, many people (patient and doctors alike) have made up their own ways to change the diet and make it so it is “easier” for their client/customer to lose weight. This may include allowing foods that weren’t on Dr. Simeons’ original food list or saying it is okay to use normal lotion/beauty products. However, while it may make the diet and beauty routine less strict, these changes can hinder speed of weight loss and also stop the detoxing effect that the HCG diet is supposed to have on your body and your hypothalamus (see Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript for more information on this).

So, all of our products and recommendations will follow the strict Dr. Simeons protocol. In fact, we created many of our products specifically for people who are on Phase 2 also known as the VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) Phase of the Diet or for those on Phase 3 (also known as the Maintenance Phase) of the HCG diet. Furthermore, we are the home of Linda Prinster, Leanne Mennemeier, and Tiffany Prinster, all creators and authors of successful (and helpful) HCG diet books.

Our specially designed Phase 2 products include: HCG P2 Salad Dressings (Including Citrus Ginger, Vinaigrette, and Sweet Mustard), BBQ Sauce (which is an EXCELLENT addition to your VLCD meals and the ONLY one currently on the market that is allowed while on HCG), Hot Sauce, Spices (Including Lemon Herb Seasoning, All-Purpose Seasoning, Hot Pepper Steak Seasoning, and Louisiana Sweet Seasoning), and we are always adding more food items.

We also offer Phase 2 Safe beauty products. Again, if you are just learning about the diet, you may say – “Why would I need new beauty products while on the HCG diet?” Well, let us tell you.

While on the HCG Diet, you are not allowed to put anything that has any fats or oils in it onto your skin (EXCEPT baby oil, which makes no sense, but that’s the rule). So, you need to check all of your make up and items such as soap, shampoo, hair products, LOTIONS, and more before you apply to your skin during the VLCD because if they contain any fats or oils, they WILL stall your weight loss OR make you gain. Don’t believe us? Try it yourself. Although, we wouldn’t recommend it as it will only slow you down. :)

So, we created a line of beauty products to use while you are on the HCG diet that includes Tiffalina’s HCG safe lotion, lip balm, shampoo, and conditioner. And although these products aren’t the most creamy and luxurious products out there, they will help you make it through the VLCD until you can use your normal products again.

Finally, for Phase 3 of the diet, we have developed an “Easy Protein” line that are snacks and foods that are high in protein and low in carbs, making them a great addition to your HCG Maintenance food list. With these yummy snacks, P3 will feel like a breeze to you.

If you decide that the HCG diet is right for you, good luck! There is so much information to be found about the diet, but it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Just take a deep breath, find some great P2 and P3 recipes, get your shopping done, and find something to distract you as you make your way through this awesome (yet sometimes difficult) weight loss plan.

Also, please feel free to check out the site and Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript: Pounds and Inches, A New Approach to Obesity. And never hesitate to call us with any questions that you might have. You can reach us at 888-389-0626 or email us at info@diyhcg.com. Even if you don’t want to talk to a live person, you can call our phone number and follow the instructions to listen to a short 5-minute recorded overview of the HCG diet. Sometimes just hearing it all in one place can help to clear up some misunderstandings that you may have.

Different Types of HCG (HCG Comparison Chart)

types-of-hcg-comparison-chart.jpg

We know how confusing the different types of HCG available can be... especially with the hundreds of HCG websites all claiming to be the best HCG around.

For this reason we made a comparison chart for all the different types of HCG available to help 'keep it straight' and help individuals make a decision on why type of HCG they want to use for the HCG diet.

We focus on the three most popular HCG types:

  • Homeopathic HCG
  • HCG injections (HCG shots)
  • Sublingual self-mixed HCG.

We did not add the non-popular types of HCG such as topical HCG creams, HCG pellets, HCG pill, and oral HCG trojans to the mix in order to keep it simpler.

Note: Sometime when looking at types of HCG you will see words like HGC, Homeopathic HGC, HGC injections / HGC shots, HGC Drops, HGC Diet, etc. The correct term is "HCG", but it is commonly mistaken as HGC.

Other necessities required for HCG administering

Oral syringe (included in order from DIYHCG.com)

23 - 40 syringes with needles (25 – 32 gauge) one single-use shot per day for the minimum of 23 and the maximum of 40 doses per cycle], one 30 cc bacteriostatic water, one 30 cc Sealed vial (amber color recommended by some participants), 1 Box of alcohol pads (buy a box with either 100 or 200 if you anticipate more than one round), 1 Large mixing syringe and mixing needle (ex. 21 gauge) per ampoule

18 cc distilled water or bacteriostatic water or B12 *recommended (used as dissolving agent and filler), 2 cc of alcohol such as vodka or gin (reported to help with absorption), 1 oz. Amber bottle for storing the HCG in the refrigerator, 1 Large mixing syringe and small mixing needle (21 gauge works well) per ampoule of HCG to be mixed, 1 oral syringe

HCG Preparation Required

None

You receive the HCG prescription powder in glass ampoules and go through the many steps to mix the HCG solution yourself. You must find some good instructions somewhere and figure out how to make the HCG preparation area sterile, work the different sized syringes, draw the proper amounts of fluids, and properly mix the HCG with the correct ratio of bacteriostatic water for the strength you need to do the round. We do not want the liability of telling you how mix this type of HCG as it is very complicated and, if done incorrectly, may cause physical harm.

How to Administer this Type of HCG?

3 times per day. Measure .5 cc on your oral syringe, squirt it under your tongue, let sit for 2 minutes, and then swallow any of the HCG drops left.

We CANNOT give you ANY medical advice, but here's the jist: Once per day you will rub top of HCG vial with an alcohol pad, suck up the correct amount of HCG into a 1 cc/ml syringe, pinch the skin where you are injecting the HCG (either in stomach, rear hip area, or leg), stick needle in (avoiding veins and arteries), and inject the HCG into your body.

Twice per day, you measure out the pre-calculated amount of your mixed HCG solution (depending on your HCG dilution), squirt it under your tongue, let it sit there for two minutes, and swallow whatever HCG remains.

 

We hope this HCG chart comparing the different types of HCG on the market will help you decide what HCG to use during your upcoming round of the HCG diet. We understand that with so many different types of HCG on the market today (like Homeopathic HCG (hHCG), HCG injections / HCG shots, and sublingual self-mixed HCG) it can be confusing, but this HCG chart can really aid you in the HCG decision making process as it is very important that you are on the type of HCG that is right for you.
