HCG/Metabolic Diet


Embark on a transformative weight loss journey with the HCG/Metabolic Diet, a comprehensive program that integrates the use of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) hormone supplementation with a low-calorie diet. At The Blend Institute, we provide guidance and support to help you achieve your weight loss goals through this unique approach.


The HCG/Metabolic Diet is designed to facilitate weight loss by combining the benefits of HCG hormone supplementation with a carefully structured low-calorie diet. This program aims to enhance fat burning, suppress appetite, and promote overall metabolic well-being.

What is HCG?

Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) is a hormone naturally produced during pregnancy. In the context of the HCG/Metabolic Diet, small amounts of HCG are administered through daily subcutaneous injections or in oral form. The use of HCG is theorized to help suppress hunger, preserve lean muscle mass, and encourage the body to utilize stored fat for energy.

How Does HCG Work for Weight Loss?

The HCG/Metabolic Diet operates on several key principles:

1. Low-Calorie Diet:

The diet restricts daily caloric intake to a range of 500-800 calories, significantly lower than the typical daily intake. It primarily consists of lean protein sources, vegetables, and limited fruits and carbohydrates. The low-calorie phase is divided into loading, weight loss, and maintenance phases.

2. Appetite Suppression:

HCG is believed to play a role in reducing hunger and cravings, making it easier for individuals to adhere to the low-calorie diet. This appetite-suppressing effect contributes to the overall success of the weight loss program.

3. Subcutaneous Injections:

In the injectable form of the HCG diet, individuals self-administer small amounts of HCG under the skin using a fine needle. The dosage, injection intervals, and the duration of the HCG phase are determined by the healthcare provider overseeing the diet.

4. Nutritional Supplements and Guidelines:

Additional nutritional supplements, such as vitamins and minerals, may be recommended to compensate for the low-calorie intake. Guidelines for hydration, exercise, and lifestyle modifications are provided to support overall well-being during the weight loss journey.

5. Curb Appetite and Fat Burning:

Proponents suggest that the combination of HCG and a very low-calorie diet helps curb appetite, promote fat burning, and reset the body's metabolism.

Important Considerations:

Before considering the HCG/Metabolic Diet or any weight loss program, it's essential to consult with a healthcare professional. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved HCG for weight loss and some argue that observed weight loss is likely due to the extremely low-calorie intake rather than the effects of HCG. 

Our expert medical team takes great care to ensure that the program you choose is safe and appropriate for your specific health conditions and needs, and that you are aware of potential risks and limitations associated with such diets.
