How Does the Program Work?
At HCG Chicago, we believe that health comes from making good food choices, having an exercise plan, and creating a healthy balance in all areas of life.
One part of this overall health plan is our physician-created HCG Chicago Body Balancing Program, an enhanced version of the HCG Diet, founded on the original protocol developed by Dr. ATW Simeons. His manuscript, entitled “Pounds and Inches,” outlines how his method of using small doses of Human Chorionic Gonadatropin (hCG) in obese patients decreased appetite, facilitated weight loss as well as decreased fat and inches around hips, thighs, buttocks and stomach. This successful, natural approach to weight loss has been proven effective and safe, time and time again, since the 1950s.
Your weight loss journey begins with a health evaluation by Dr. Tom Drost, MD, who will review your medical history and address your concerns to ensure you are a good candidate for our program and the HCG diet. Once you have received Dr. Tom’s approval and clearance, he will review the protocol and answer your questions. You are now ready to start the HCG diet program and begin to lose inches and burn fat, FAST! At HCG Chicago, we have four distinct phases.
Phase 1: Preparing Your Body for Success through Detox
This phase is dedicated to preparing the body for success. For a period of 28 days, patients take supplements the promote the detoxification of the liver and GI tract while following a diet plan that eliminates toxic foods. Daily exercise and activity is also incorporated in the program.
Phase 2: Metabolic Resetting through HCG
Patients have the choice of using hCG in an injectable form or by dissolving tablets under the tongue. hCG is used, along with a strict low calorie diet of specific foods (all found in grocery stores), for a period of 23 or 40 days. The length of Phase 2 depends on the patient’s specific weight loss goals.
* It is important to note that all of the HCG dispensed from our office is compounded by a licensed and certified US Pharmacy. Each batch is assayed for potency and purity.
Phase 3: Lock In Your Weight Loss
Dedicated to resetting the hypothalamus and locking in the weight loss, the third phase is 21 days in length and includes specific dietary guidelines, exercise and the tools for sustainable weight loss.

Complete with nutritional counseling with our medical staff, this phase focuses on eating and lifestyle habits for a lifetime.

Disclaimer: The Body Balancing Protocol includes an injection of HCG, a drug which has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective for the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or “normal” distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
