Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons
Noted endocrinologist, world traveler, and Red Cross Order of Merit recipient, Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons is best known today for his innovations in using the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) to treat obesity. Dr. Simeons was born in London, England in 1900 and graduated summa cum laude with a medical degree from the prestigious University of Heidelberg in Germany. Dr. Simeons is the author of several medical books and has contributed to many scientific publications.
In 1954, he published a book called “Pounds and Inches”. It is from this landmark study that the modern HCG diet derives its approach. In the manuscript, Dr. Simeons discusses the complex combinations of contributors to obesity. He outlines the three main causes as genetic disposition, glandular disorders and culture. To combat an imbalance resulting from these factors of obesity, Dr. Simeons devised his HCG Protocol, which recommends low doses of the HCG hormone and outlines menus for a particular low calorie diet.
