HCG Diet Question Answered: “Is High-Potency HCG Worth The Money?”

There’s High-Purity HCG and the there’s regular strength HCG — which is better for your HCG Diet journey?hcg diet-hcg drops-best hcg

How about neither? We’ll get to that in a minute.

Supposedly, one’s more expensive than the other, just as Extra Strength Tylenol costs a few bits more than regular Tylenol.

But… is it worth the money?

That was the question and this started out as the answer to a challenge on my HCG Diet: The Straight Truth page on Facebook, but when I went to answer it, I started channeling Edward R. Murrow and before I knew it I had maxed out Facebook’s tiny comment field.


Anyway, this person declared…

“I have been on the phone with Pharmacy Escrow they tell me there is no difference between High Purity or the other HCG they have for the hcg diet. I have been reading several forums where people say they are hungier on the High Purity. I see they have a Hucog High Purity. I did okay with regular Hucog my first go round. Sorry but I am just wanting to know which one to get so I don’t waste my money.”

First of all, let me address her ‘being on several hcg diet forums and they claim they were hungrier on the High-Purity HCG.

B.S., I say. In working with thousands of folks on the HCG Diet, I have never found that was the case.

As a general rule, all other things being the same, the more potent the HCG that gets into your body, the more fat and inches are lost, and yes hunger as well.

HCG Diet’s “High-Purity” HCG Myth

First of all, there’s no such thing as “high-purity HCG.” It’s a marketing ploy to charge more money for the same cheap HCG. However some HCGs are stronger, more potent than others and to find out just how much so, the most reputable companies furnish their COA (Certificate Of Analysis). Take a look at the updated COA on my Nu Image page.

That’s a quick and dirty way to find out if you’re buying your HCG from an overseas pharmacy because they will never give you their COA because they don’t have one. While it is a requirement to have one here in the States because of the FDA, once you leave the U.S. it’s anything goes.

Oh, I’ve had people claim this or that HCG was causing their hunger while on the HCG Diet protocols, but usually it turned out there were doing other things that were actually causing the hunger.

Things that, when they quit doing them, they were no magically longer hungry and they were using the same HCG during that HCG Diet round. Go figure.

The Smartest Thing To Do On Your HCG Journey…

Secondly, when you’re on the HCG Diet, the smartest thing you can do is wean yourself off these misguided forums, Facebook pages and all those mommy and daddy hobby blogs.

They’re crazy-making with their lack of verifiable facts and ‘he said, she said’ anecdotal chatter on what does and does not work. Just because someone says it’s true on YouTube is not the same as actually being true.

During the first round of my HCG Diet journey, I soon quit going to these HCG hangouts because there was so much “noise” there and very little fact. The deluge of misinformation nearly ruined my HCG Journey just two weeks in.

Like I still sometimes do, just think how much weight I would have lost in my first round if I had known how to sort the experienced from the know-nothings. I was still able to shed 60 lbs., but maybe I would have only needed two rounds instead of three.

I try not to think about it too much.  😉

But my “radical opinions” got me banned on one of them.

And today it’s with no small amount of schadenfreude that, while I’ve kept my weight off during all these years, many of them are still hanging out in these places all day long still go on the HCG Diet once or twice a year because they could never stabilize and keep the weight off.

One of them, is gearing up for her SIXTH round of the HCG Diet and she only had 75 pounds to lose! Do the math — if she lost an average of 20-30 lbs each HCG Diet round…

HCG Diet Life Lesson #1

Never take business advice from an academic, sex advice from a priest, or HCG Diet advice from anyone who can’t stabilize. (click to Tweet)

But I digress… back to this woman’s claim — someone told her there was no difference between the two different kinds of HCG.

Bottom-line, as our HCG Diet Success Made Easy coaching members and thousands of others have learned, and as our independent testing has shown time and again — the more potent the HCG, the more fat and inches you lose.

I do hope that clears things up for her (and for you too, in case you were wonderin’) and now I hope she has a better idea of how to allocate her money so she can leverage her time/s on the HCG Diet to her maximum advantage.

But ya know… I find it funny that people shop for the cheapest HCG they can find, like they were getting motor oil at a HCG Diet Wal-Mart. It’s one of those things that are funny and not so funny at the same time. I mean, my God, they even create videos about finding the cheapest HCG.

Not the best, mind you and not the most effective — but the cheapest. Sheesh…

Here’s how I see it — look, you’re injecting or ingesting pharmaceuticals into your body for that round of the HCG Diet. Not something you should do lightly.

Do you really want to buy from someone who advertises as the low-cost leader? I don’t. And I never did except one time and since I didn’t lose the huge amounts I had previously enjoyed, then it was always a nagging doubt in the back of my mind: “Did I not lose as much on that HCG Diet round because I went cheap?”

There’s that and if you’re doing the HCG Diet correctly, the way it was meant to be done, then you have only a finite number of rounds on it. For example, I maxed out at 3 rounds, there was no way I had enough fat to lose to do more.

Don’t you owe it to yourself to stack every, single advantage in your favor and use the most potent HCG you can lay your paws upon during each round of your HCG Diet journey? Now I know there are a couple of pessimistic naysayers out there who’ll snipe back (but never to my face) that ‘of course I going to say that, because I have an referral relationship with them.’

And yet, I have a reputation and the experience for knowing what works and what doesn’t on the HCG Diet and usually why. Everything I talk about and say is true is fact because I and many others have tested different variations out until we found what worked and what didn’t.

Then, I had them do more of what worked and less of what didn’t. And amazing fat loss on every HCG Diet round is always results from that.

Seems like common sense to me. But then, I’m never going to be on the HCG diet ever again. Won’t need to be. I wonder how many of the naysayers will be able to look back and say that?

They just keep taking it off, cheating, failing to stabilize, pack it back on plus more, wait six weeks and do it all over and over again — but there’s a problem with doing the HCG diet that way.

That is very, very hard on your body and if they would listen to me, I’d tell them to stop doing that right now. That much yo-yoing on and off the HCG Diet is almost as detrimental to their health as being overweight in the first place! (click to Tweet)

    This is comment is loosely related to the subject because I’ve written before about “forum madness” and the time and money I wasted before finding your coaching course. Only a week in all I can say is a heartfelt “thanks”,

    It might be wrong to say “I love you, coach” – but your latest response to my email contained tips and info NO ONE ever tells YOU. You just can’t find this stuff anywhere – let alone from a real person. I can tell you did have your troubles on hCG to have learned all of this.

    Yesterday (as of this morning) I lost 2.2 lbs more – so that was good…but I know I can get and should get 1+ lbs a day consistently.

    Again, thanks for the invaluable info. Onward and downward.


  2. KathyD says:

    I used High Purity HCG from Pharacy Escrow for my first round and it worked really well. At the time I ordered, I don’t think they had High-Purity Hugog. When I use up what I have, I plan on switching to the High-Purity Hugog and using it to finish out my rounds. Thank you for the explanation.

  3. Coach Walter says:

    Hey you,

    Thought you’d want to see this and you may not have because it took place in another area online. This guy asked me a pointed question about why I added B12 to injections kits (I didn’t, but you’ll learn that in a moment).


    @Christopher – **I** don't add anything to the kits. That is the pharmacy's doing and I have no control over it. And I presume you're looking at my page, so those are sublingual directions, since that's the majority of my audience.

    If you're doing injections then you don't need any kit that has B12 in it. You need a kit for injections.

    For sublingual folks the B12 is pretty standard formulation. We don't use that in the new formulation for the coaching program, but most folks are comfortable w/it.

    And as far as things being expensive or not… that's really subjective. When I'm putting pharmacueticals in my body, I do not, **will not** use the cheapest stuff money can buy. This is not like shopping for motor oil at Walmart.

    Think of it like this: I imagine your clients would rather do biz w/"Top Flight Marketing" (his company's name) rather than "Cheapest Marketing Around," wouldn't they?

    See this recent post for more on this: http://gutlessinseattle.com/2611/finally-revealed-is-high-purity-hcg-worth-the-money/

    Good question. Thanks for asking it.

  4. Coach Walter says:

    Thanks for the love, Jill. Each person’s journey on the HCG Diet is so individual, that it really can’t be done by book or boilerplate approach. That’s why I have the HCG Diet Success Coaching Program (shameless plug, there) because I wanted to model what approach works best while on HCG.

    And the approach that worked best? When Simeons had his clients in front of him and was able to monitor their progress and make individual adjustments based on the feedback.

  5. Coach Walter says:

    Glad you found what worked for you and I believe you’re correct — the High-Purity HUGOG is a fairly recent addition. One thing I like about PE is they do listen to their customers. There are other things I DON’T like about them, but they always treat their customers like gold, and that’s all I care about.

  6. Coach Walter says:

    I like your intention, Cheryl!

  7. Coach Walter says:

    I like you intention, Cheryl!

  8. Teena Anderson says:

    I have to say I was recommended pharmacy escrow from a trustworthy friend and have been very successful and happy!!! I went through a diet place 2 years ago and was happy but didn’t loose the max amount (and I followed it to a T!!) I since then have had a baby and decided to do it again but wanted to mix it myself so I knew for sure the iu’s I was getting. I ordered the high purity not really reading up on it but just assuming it was better…. It is way better!!!! I am definitely less hungry and have a much easier time with sticking to the diet, I don’t have more than like 30 lbs. to lose and I am having such great success I don’t think I will have to do more than this one round!!! Enjoyed your info thanks!!

  9. Rikki says:

    Do you approve of Ultra Burn which is sold by NuImage?

  10. Coach Walter says:

    Lol… you must not read this blog. Use the Search box and type in “Ultra Burn.”

  11. Sate10 says:

    Good Morning,

    I am trying to understand the different levels of HCG.  The Shots say 10,000 IU, 20,000 Torche and 15,000 IU for the drops… however, you recommend the shots and I just wanted to know why the shots have lower IUs and if that is due to it being able to get directly into your system or if there was another explanation. Thank you for your time.

  12. Coach Walter says:

    Nailed it in one, TA! That is exactly why there’s a diff betw #HCG sublinqual and shots dosages.
