At Agape Weight Loss Center in Fall River and Warwick, we educate our patients before choosing the HCG diet plan, to be sure it’s the right plan for that individual.
How does HCG work?
Agape’s medical-grade HCG is taken orally and absorbed into the body, causing the patient’s system to attack stored fat. HCG triggers the body to break down fat cells and transfers those fat cells into the blood stream, which you burn off as energy. This process burns anywhere from 1500 to 4000 calories per day, while utilizing a low-calorie diet. This combination, HCG and a low-calorie diet, allows patients to still maintain their strength and energy levels while on this program. If HCG is taken with a normal diet, there will be an actual weight gain.
When an overweight person tries to lose weight by implementing a very low-calorie diet without HCG, the dieter will first lose normal fat reserves, followed by the burning of structural fat. Both of these two types of fat are essential in our bodies. Only then, the body finally starts to burn abnormal fat (bad fat). Once this happens, the dieter will begin to feel weak and hungry, typically causing them to give up. If there are signs of weight loss, it is usually not in the desired areas. The good fat is diminished, and the bad fat stays.
With the use of HCG and following the specific diet protocol, dieters can start burning abnormal fat immediately while leaving the structural fat and fat reserves in place to keep the body healthy. Reports show an average loss of .05 to 2 pounds per day using HCG. Along with the decrease in pounds, you will see inches melt away, and those abnormal fat deposits will begin to disappear. HCG can be used by men and women with no reported unsafe side effects.
Agape Weight Loss Center in Fall River and Warwick use only medical-grade HCG.

What you need to know about (Human Chorionic Gonadotropins)
To change how your metabolism functions and to lose your stubborn abnormal fat, you need to follow a low-calorie diet and use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is a hormone that is commonly found in your body. The HCG Diet was developed by Dr. Simeon who devoted much of his life to finding a cure for weight loss. Dr. Simeon's studies found that weight gain is not necessarily affected by the quantities of food that one eats. His lifelong studies came to show, not only can you lose fat in those hard to burn areas like your belly, chin, love handles, thighs, and arms, but you can also change how your metabolism functions over time. By observing women in third world countries who were working hard and long hours with very little food, Dr. Simeon realized that even though these women were practically starving out in the fields, they were still giving birth to perfectly normal, healthy, full weight babies. From this observation, Dr. Simeons realized that whether the mothers ate or not, the baby was STILL GETTING THE NUTRITION they needed through a biological process using HCG.
As of December 6, 2011, the FDA has prohibited the sale of "homeopathic" and OTC hCG diet products and declared them fraudulent and illegal".
FDA crackdown on over the counter HCG products
Recently, the FDA issued statements regarding homeopathic and over-the-counter versions of HCG. In a USA Today article, an FDA spokesperson said: “there is no evidence oral over-the-counter products are effective for weight loss, and while they may not be dangerous, they’re at least economic fraud.”
We’re pleased the FDA is addressing this important issue. Since medical weight loss is our specialty, we’ve been concerned for quite some time about counterfeit products marketed under the “HCG” name. We would argue these products are both fraudulent and dangerous since the contents of these products do not include any of the actual hormones, and because it’s unsafe to follow a very low-calorie diet without the benefits of “authentic HCG” and without a doctor’s supervision.
There is a monumental difference between authentic medical grade HCG, and the retail versions being called into question by the FDA. They’re not the same.
Our practice utilizes only Medical Grade HCG, manufactured to U.S. lab standards, which require a doctor’s prescription. This medication is FDA approved for some uses and monitored by the FDA, DEA, and the State Pharmacy Board. Medical grade HCG is safe and effective when administered by a Medical only Facility.
We’ve provided treatment to hundreds of patients the past 2 years with medical grade HCG. Our patients have experienced amazing results, losing hundreds of pounds, many of them after years of struggling with failed diets.
We hope this information eliminates any misunderstanding regarding the differences in these products. One is an authentic medical grade product that has been used successfully in our practice - the other is a cheap retail counterfeit, currently receiving the FDA scrutiny it deserves.
