What You Should Know
Any diet that tells the follower to eat fatty food without a care in the world and then slams them into a 500 calorie per day diet plan is not one we approve of. There are very few medical diets that offer daily calorie totals of 500 calories, let alone one followed without the consideration and careful watch of a physician. Power HCG offers a quick start guide complete with a 500 calorie per day diet that should be followed for 30 to 45 days. The expected weight loss is 20 to 30 pounds. This weight loss is likely linked to the low calorie diet and not the HCG drops.

The Power HCG diet plan is clearly associated with ATW Simeons. He devised a plan of eating a very low calorie diet of 500 calories or fewer that consisted of restricted carbohydrates, restricted fats and increased protein. The plan was based on a study he performed that resulted in a link (as he saw it) between HCG and weight loss. HCG is released by pregnant women during pregnancy and it helps to regulate some reproductive hormones. This link has not been proven and the Journal of the American Medical Association claims the HCG diet by Simeons is unhealthy.
Power HCG is delivered in drop form. There is further information that most products of this sort contain very little real HCG or none at all. Because the Food and Drug Administration does not regulate homeopathic drops or supplements, the manufacturer can claim effects that are not proven because no proof is required for such claims, unless they are medical in nature.
There is a lot of fine print associated with ordering Power HCG. The initial trial order comes with a free website subscription that will be charged to the credit card on file if not canceled within the allotted time. The supplement has a 7 day money back guarantee and 7 day trial period. If future orders are not cancelled in that time, more money will be charged to the credit card. This charge is in addition to the recurring charge for the Power HCG supplement.
- The website offers information on HCG and all ingredients in the supplement.
- Homeopathic HCG is not proven effective or safe.
- The Journal of the American Medical Association warns consumers about very low calorie diets and HCG drops.
Power HCG and the subsequent diet is not a safe diet to follow. The body needs more than 500 calories to function in a healthy manner that supports general wellbeing. Consuming calories this low may be considered starvation.
