THE HISTORY OF HCG
It is a human byproduct produced during a woman’s pregnancy. It’s role is to maintain the progesterone production that is critical for a pregnancy. Some researchers believe that HCG can provide pregnant women with extra immunity during pregnancy and can actually help the body burn more fat. The result is that the burning of fat can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low calorie diet.
Upon Dr. Simeons death in 1970 he stated:
“The protocol [the HCG diet program] was everything that I hoped it would be — no hunger, no food cravings, no grumpiness, no feeling of deprivation, no fatigue, a dramatic reshaping of the body with the burning of the secure problem area fat deposits.”
His results have been documented and heralded in Medical Journals around the world. Dr. Simeons then wrote his findings in a book entitled “Pounds and Inches”. Even though the book is filled with medical jargon, it can give the reader a thorough understanding of how the diet came to be and the research that went into its findings.
As Dr. Simeons writes in the Foreword of his book:
“This book discusses a new interpretation of the nature of obesity and while it does not advocate yet another fancy slimming diet it does describe a method of treatment which has grown out of theoretical considerations based on clinical observation.”
In his studies he found that all cases of weight loss brought about by dieting, thyroid treatments, appetite-reducing drugs, laxatives, violent exercise, massage, or baths, the loss is only temporary and will be rapidly regained as soon as the reducing regimen is relaxed or eliminated.
We do not want to overwhelm the casual reader with technical details, but there is some general information that will be important to understand.
Everybody thinks fat is just fat. That is not the case.
There are actually three kinds of fat and the HCG Diet deals with all three!
This is how fat is utilized in the body:
When someone overweight goes on a diet, they try to reduce their weight by starving themselves. First they will lose their Normal Fat. When this is exhausted, the body begins to burn up Structural Fat and then only as a last resort, the body yields its Abnormal Fat.
By that time the dieter usually feels weak and hungry. They feel famished and tired. Their face becomes drawn and haggard. However, their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest remains and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. Dr. Simeons believed this to be one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences a human being can have.
Think About It
More caloric energy is required to keep a large body at a certain temperature than to heat a small body. Therefore, all other factors being equal, an overweight person requires more food than a lean one. It would stand to reason then that if an overweight person eats only the additional food his body requires, he should be able to keep his weight stationary. Yet every physician who has studied overweight patients under rigorous controlled conditions knows that this is not true. Many overweight patients actually gain weight on a diet which is calorically deficient of their basic needs.
AT THIS, DR. SIMEONS CONCLUDES:
“THERE MUST BE SOME OTHER MECHANISM AT WORK”.
In an effort to unravel this mystery of what this “other mechanism” might be, many medical studies have been started and later abandoned. Also, potential theories are numerous. These include theories about the Thyroid Gland, the Pituitary Gland, the Adrenal Glands and the Hypothalamus. You can add to these the Psychological theories of why someone is overweight. In his book Dr. Simeons discusses these ideas and why they are not the missing puzzle piece of the “other mechanism”.
Dr. Simeons traveled to India and found doctors administering HCG to overweight patients who had large hips, buttocks and thighs. He was intrigued, and began his first study of HCG. The Indian doctors were giving small daily doses of HCG to these patients. The results showed that their ravenous appetite disappeared and their shape also changed. The Abnormal Fat deposits from their hips also disappeared and the body was using its Abnormal Fat for fuel!
HCG WAS THE “OTHER MECHANISM”
This was the secret to the diet’s success story. But what is HCG? In medical terms it is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a “naturally occurring hormone” that is produced during a woman’s pregnancy by the developing embryo soon after conception and later is found in the placenta.
Patients had a reduced appetite and could comfortably go about their normal occupations.
“It was also perfectly evident that only Abnormal Fat was being consumed, as there were no signs of any depletion of Normal Fat. Their skin remained fresh and gradually their figures became entirely normal.”
HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?
Dr. Simeons explains that a woman may gain weight during pregnancy, but she never becomes obese in the strict sense of the word. Her body is under the influence of the HCG which circulates in enormous quantities in her body during pregnancy, Abnormal Fat deposits are never formed. At delivery, she is suddenly deprived of HCG and Abnormal Fat starts to leave fixed fat deposits.
HCG has been medically known for more than eighty years. Initially it was used to diagnose early pregnancy by testing a woman’s urine. It is never found in the human body except during pregnancy and is never found in a male. HCG has no effect on normal sex-glands of the male or female—it is not a sex-hormone.
During pregnancy a woman produces as much as one million IUs [International Units] per day. The diet injection is a miniscule amount of about 125 IUs per day. This dosage does not change whether the patient is 400 or 150 pounds and the 500 calorie diet is the same. The resulting daily weight loss average of one pound is also the same, however larger patients have shown much higher results.
Now it’s time to start!
In all probability this is not your first diet and the reason for starting this one is that the others did not produce the results you expected. Our HCG Diet Program is different. You will see a new and improved you. Your life expectancy can increase and your overall well being can be enhanced. Believe it! It is true!
Now the tough part. There are requirements. Strict adherence to the 500 calories and eating only permitted foods is essential to your success. YOU WILL NOT BE HUNGRY! The HCG will reduce or eliminate food cravings.
The minimum diet lasts 26 days—even if you want to lose just 5 pounds. During this period you will receive 23 injections or sublingual Pills followed by 3 days of diet without injections or sublingual Pills. You may continue the diet up to a maximum of 43 days or until you lose the desired amount of weight.
