ChiroThin Weight Loss Program Frequently Asked Questions
What is ChiroThin and how does it work?
The ChiroThin formula by ChiroNutraceutical is a natural homeopathic HCG dietary supplement. It contains a host of nutritional ingredients that are well known to aid in fatty acid transportation, fatty acid metabolism, blood sugar stabilization, increase in metabolism and detoxification. When combined with a healthy and specific amounts and blends of low glycemic index, anti-inflammatory foods, your body will be more efficient at converting stored fat into energy. In general, ChiroThin allows the body to more efficiently metabolize fat and use it as energy when an individual consumes less calories than they burn in a given period of time. ChiroNutraceutical has specifically designed the ChiroThin formula to include specific amounts of amino acids, vitamins and cell salts for additional added benefit. ChiroThin drops are placed under the tongue three times each day.
Where is ChiroThin manufactured and what are the quality control guidelines?

Our manufacturing facility, which is located in the western United States, is FDA certified up to and including pharmaceutical manufacturing. This means that with ChiroNutraceutical, routine inspections by the FDA ensure compliance with current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMPs) and the Code of Federal Regulations (CFRs) for your safety. Unlike many nutritional companies, ChiroNutraceutical holds its own individual FDA Establishment Number.
What sets ChiroNutraceutical's product apart from the rest?
Unlike lower grade products, you will not find this product being sold online or by other companies. We have worked with our formulation team to create only top-shelf nutritional dietary supplements. We do not import any ingredients from overseas. The ChiroThin formula is proprietary and uses nothing but high grade ingredients. Our unique formula has many advantages like added natural appetite suppressants, energy supplements, detoxification, lean muscle protection, and more. This carefully designed formulation optimizes the plan to the fullest. Patients frequently report to us that they feel much better and have less hunger issues while taking the ChiroThin formula than when they had tried other weight loss programs. That being said, our ChiroThin drops have the highest quality and desired effects.
What is the difference between ChiroThin, Prescription HCG and Homeopathic HCG?
Prescription HCG is usually pure pharmaceutical grade HCG with no supporting elements to help it perform. Prescription HCG can be very effective but must be obtained and monitored only by a licensed medical physician. This makes it very expensive as well as being against the law to possess it without a prescription. Pure HCG is usually administered by injection only.
Homeopathic HCG formulas are formulas that contain homeopathic HCG. Many times, the homeopathic HCG is then blended with other natural ingredients.
ChiroNutraceutical's ChiroThin is a blend of very specific ingredients including amino acids, vitamins, and cell salts and is designed to help your body function better. When used for improved health or as part of the doctor supervised ChiroThin Weight Loss Program, along with dietary and behavioral changes, it is safe, effective and affordable.
Is ChiroThin safe for men?
ChiroThin's proprietary formula is safe for men. In fact, men often experience faster results and more significant results.
Will my metabolism slow down if I am on a very low calorie diet?
It is true that when dramatically, cutting back on calories and fat, our body stores fat and our metabolism slows down. This is what is referred to as "starvation mode" and occurs because the body stores the most calorie dense material, which happens to be fat (9cal/gm). When a very specific type of diet is used in conjunction with the ChiroThin formula, the body will more easily perform the process of fatty acid transportation and metabolism. This will aid your body in mobilizing and utilizing fat to give you the calories that are needed. ChiroThin, when combined with a specific blend of low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods, will help to keep the body from going into starvation mode by allowing fat to be more easily burned to make up the caloric deficit. The original 1950's protocol called for a 500 calorie restricted food choices per day. On the ChiroThin program your food choices are greater! And your calorie intake will range from 700 - 900 calories per day depending on your daily choices. If you're hungry then you are not eating enough!
Wouldn't I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet?
While a person will lose weight while on a VLCD without the additional nutritional support provided by the ChiroThin formula, the body will rapidly go into "starvation mode". Starvation mode is a protective function of the human body. When an individual consumes fewer calories than they consume over a prolonged period of time, the human body will actually slow down the metabolism, start burning muscle for energy, and attempt to store any fat that is consumed. This is extremely unhealthy and will only cause a massive rebound weight gain when the VLCD is discontinued. Additionally, an individual should never attempt a VLCD without physician supervision. By using ChiroThin Weight Loss Program in combination with a specific blend and portion of low glycemic index and anti-inflammatory foods, the body will be more effective at fatty acid transportation and fatty acid metabolism.
Will I get hungry?
While it is common to feel mild hunger during the first few days, this sensation will usually stop after 4-6 days. By the end of the first week you will find your servings to be satisfying. This is because ChiroThin's proprietary formula is specifically blended with additional ingredients to aid in blood sugar stabilization as well as natural hunger and craving suppressors. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body is being given the substances it needs to more easily access the energy you have stored in fat cells. Drinking 64-100 ounces of water per day will additionally act as an extra hunger suppressant and help keep your energy level high. As a "rule of thumb" the average person on ChiroThin has plenty of energy and feels good while on the program.
Will ChiroThin interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera injections?
The ingredients of ChiroThin have not been shown to interact with ANY medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera. Even though there are currently no clinically proven side effects to ChiroThin, as with any diet we do recommend consulting with your doctor to make sure this diet is for you.
What about pregnancy and taking ChiroThin?
If you are pregnant do not take ChiroThin. If you become pregnant during the ChiroThin program, stop taking ChiroThin and consult your physician.
How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?
While weight loss will vary by person, many people have and could lose between 20-35 pounds on the 42-day program. Everyone is different. It depends on many factors including how much excess weight you have, how much weight needs to be lost, and your adherence to the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program. Men typically lose between 30-45 pounds on the 42-day program.
Does the weight loss slow down after the first two weeks?
Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first week, then a gradual slowing of weight loss. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.
Is it ok to skip a meal or protein at one of my meals?
NO!!! Never skip any of your meals. It's important to eat all of your allotted food. It is especially important that you consume the full portions of protein.
Can I exercise daily?
While on the ChiroThin program we recommend cardio and light exercise if you desire. Your doctor will adjust your food intake to accommodate your exercise. When exercising, the body burns calories. Because the body is not able to metabolize fat as fast as it is burned with exercise, you have a significantly greater chance for injury due to rapid onset fatigue. We simply ask that you give us 42 days with minimal exercise. Once you are done with the 42 days, we strongly encourage exercising.
Do I have to take vitamins while doing this diet?
You should be taking a good multivitamin to help support you nutritionally throughout the 42-day weight loss program .
Is it normal to get a headache during the first week?
Some people may experience light headaches during the first week. It is most often due to the fact that your body stores its toxins and your fat cells and when the fat cells are used for energy, the toxins are released into your body. If you experience headaches increase your water consumption.
Can I take the drops longer than 42 days if I want to keep losing weight?
Yes! However, your body will become resistant to ChiroThin and your weight loss may stop.
Can I Drink Alcohol While Taking ChiroThin?
We strongly recommend that a person not consume alcohol while on ChiroThin. You may gain weight.
Can I wear makeup?
Unlike traditional HCG programs, the answer to this question while on the ChiroThin Weight Loss Program is yes. However, avoiding lotions, moisturizers or liquid make-ups with oil may improve the weight loss. If a body moisturizer is needed, it is recommended that you use baby oil or a non-oil lotion.
