Fat Loss Biology

HCG side effects often include muscle weakness and reduced ability to exercise. Here is what Dr. Simeons had to say about it.

HCG Side Effects

It is a myth that there are no hCG side effects while taking the hormone and consuming a 500-Calorie per day diet. One of the most common side effects is a feeling of general weakness. Exercising becomes more difficult, and performance suffers.

Here is what Dr. Simeons had to say about changes in muscle during his protocol, from his book, “Pounds and Inches” (1971 edition):


This observation highlights the notion that removing fat from where too much has accumulated is a bit of a shock to the body and requires some time for adjusting to it. Muscle weakness is, therefore, a temporary symptom of hCG side effects that goes away soon after ending the protocol.
