Do the Risks of Obesity Outweigh the Side Effects of the HCG Diet?

Risks of Obesity Outweigh Side Effects

While most people go on the HCG diet without any complications, there are a few potential side effects you should be aware of before deciding to try the HCG diet. This information is meant to simply make you aware of what some people have experienced. Keep in mind that most people don’t experience any major side effects (other than remarkable weight loss). If you have any questions, feel free to consult with a doctor or health professional before you start the diet.


Some users have mentioned they get headaches during the first week of the HCG diet. This is primarily due to dehydration. By drinking the recommended amount of water, you can avoid experiencing headaches while using the HCG diet.

Dizziness and Light-Headedness

Another small change some users have had is experiencing dizziness and Light-Headedness. This is caused by not having enough energy and also related to dehydration. Drink enough water and remember to take the B12 supplement (included with every HCG diet kit) to give your body the energy you’ll need throughout the day. Spreading out food can also help prevent dizziness.

Side Effects of Obesity

With each of these side effects in mind, it’s good to evaluate the risk compared to the reward. Yes, there are some mild side effects some people experience while on the HCG diet, but they don’t compare to the health problems most overweight people experience.

Risks of Obesity Include:

  • Heart Disease
  • Shortness of Breath
  • High Cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Premature Death

There are many more complications of being overweight, not included in the above list.

Lose Weight Safely

Most people don’t experience more than some headaches and dizziness, and those side effects are quickly corrected. Here are some tips to ensure the safety of the HCG diet while you lose weight:

  • Follow the directions exactly. (This means no cheating!)
  • Don’t skip meals.
  • Remember To Stay Hydrated
  • If you begin to experience serious side effects, speak with a doctor or health professional right away.

The fact is, almost all medications cause side effects in some of the people that use them. While not quite the same as the medicine in your bathroom cupboard, the HCG diet is no different than over-the-counter medication in that most people are fine when they use it. With the consequences of obesity being more serious than the side effects one may experience while, on HCG it makes sense to give it a try.

Begin Losing Weight Today

The greatest thing about the HCG diet is how fast it works. Whether you use a “mini kit” to lose a few pounds before a big event, go on a 26 day diet to slim down, or really want to change your life with the 40 day plan, you’ll be amazed at how quickly (and safely) the HCG diet works. Many people lose 1 to 2 regularly while on the diet. And with the detailed instructions that come with the HCG diet, you’ll know exactly what to eat and when. It’s simple, it’s fast, and it works. Plus, by losing weight you’ll be preventing future health problems related to obesity.

Stop daydreaming about weight loss, and start doing something about it. Order HCG Triumph today and finally meet those weight loss goals!

    I have sent messages to Triumph HCG regarding the VANILLA Flavored Triumph Slim Meal Replacement concerning the WARNING the product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause CANCER and BIRTH DEFECTS.
    I have spent over $400.00 on products so don’t you think I deserve an answer on whether the Meal Replacement is SAFE or NOT??
    Hope to receive an explanation soon… Thankyou..

      Hi Dennis:
      We were advised to include the California warning as sort of a general legal protection, but are not required to have it and will be leaving it off future packaging.
      Some of the minerals commonly included in vitamins and supplements, including Triumph Slim can be harmful when taken in very high doses. One ingredient in particular we have in our supplement which appears on the list of carcinogens published by the state of California is chromium or Chromium Nicotinate Glycinate Chelate, a dietary form of the vital nutrient.
      The mineral chromium is an essential nutrient and is required for the metabolism of sugars and fats. There are two forms of chromium: trivalent chromium (chromium III) and hexavalent chromium (chromium VI). While chromium III, the form of chromium used in Triumph Slim and many other supplements is considered safe, chromium VI is a know carcinogen. Very high doses of chromium III (more than 1000mg daily) can be converted by the body to chromium VI, but even so, the risk is minimal. In fact the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences has not set an upper intake limit for chromium like they have with iron, copper, magnesium and other minerals.
      We have no hesitation to recommend triumph slim as a safe dietary supplement for daily use.
      Hope that answers your question.

    IS this REAL HCG? i read that homepathic does not work or not as well as the kind you inject , pellets or drops/ Can you give your thoughts and knowledge regarding this?

    • Jordan Kinghorn

      Hi Peggy! Thank you so much for reaching out! Our HCG Triumph comes in drop form and is therefore not the homepathic version. If you have more questions please contact our sales representative, Frankie, and he will be happy to help you!

    I thought the recipe for a salad with tomatos was in phase 2. I ate a tomato. What might happen? Have been on diet 4 days and only lost 2 pounds.
