The most significant revision which has been the center of controversy for decades among physicians and critics is the 500 calorie daily allowance. The new protocol suggests that 800 calories daily combined with 30 minutes of low impact exercise, nutritional supplements such as a multi-vitamin/mineral and the hcg medication may show similar weight loss results and may be tolerated more effectively by most patients.  Additionally, increasing the calorie standard from VLCD (very low calorie diet) to an LCD (low calorie diet) may encourage more physicians to incorporate this diet method in their practices. The physicians wrote a comprehensive e-Book, approximately 80 pages that includes an educational PowerPoint explaining how HCG is used for the purpose of weight loss off label and the proposed science behind this method.  I recommend downloading this exceptional educational resource now before it is sold on bookstore shelves.  The free e-book can be found and downloaded at,  The title is the “The Truth about the HCG Diet” Please read this book before you start HCG Therapy.
