Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in the treatment of obesity: a critical assessment of the Simeons method



Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) in the treatment of obesity: a critical assessment of the Simeons method



Western Journal of Medicine 127(6): 461-463



Claims that injections of human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) aid in weight reduction by reducing hunger and affecting mood as well as aiding in localized (spot) reduction were tested in a double-blind randomized trial using injections of HCG or placebo. Weight loss was the same in the 2 groups and there was no evidence of differential effects of hunger, mood or localized body measurements.
