Comparing Methods of Weight Loss – Wegovy / Ozempic vs HCG

Consider which method is the best fit for you: Ozempic vs HCG!

What is the premise of each weight loss method? Why does it work?

Ozempic®/Wegovy® - People have reduced appetite or may feel nauseous often and don’t feel like eating. When they do eat, they feel full sooner and, consequently, are eating less overall. The result is a gradual reduction in body weight.

HCG – When there is a very low-calorie intake, HCG tells the body to tap into its abnormal fat deposits to mine vitamins and nutrients stored there. Since the person is living off his/her own body fat, the person feels satisfied, is not starving, and achieves rapid weight loss.


Rate of Loss

Ozempic®/Wegovy® - 5 pounds per month average
HCG – 15 pounds per month average


Is there a “set” eating plan for this weight loss method?

Ozempic®/Wegovy® – There is no set calorie goal or foods you must eat or avoid. However, according to the FDA, a person taking these drugs for weight loss should be following a reduced-calorie diet while increasing their amount of physical activity.
HCG – Dr. Simeons, who formulated the HCG Diet, spells out a very specific, low-calorie diet to be followed for up to 6 weeks at a time. Exercise is not required during the low-calorie phase of the diet, although it is strongly encouraged as part of a healthy lifestyle after losing weight.


Administration Method

Ozempic®/Wegovy® – A person gets a subcutaneous injection (under the skin of the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm) once a week.
HCGHomeopathic drops are taken under the tongue 3 times per day.
