Basic Information about HCG and why HCG works!
HCG (HumanChorionic Gonadotropin) allow your hypothalamus to function at a higher capacity and access abnormal fat it usually cannot access during dieting. This glycoprotein allows you to burn between 2500-4000 calories per day with an intake of only 500 calories per day without hunger, loss of energy, or need for exercise. Patients
Lose1-2lbs per day without hunger and HCG allows patients to lose more fat tissue directly causing visible contouring of the body while resetting the hypothalamus which implies long lasting results with maintenance program.
A lot of nonsense is being thrown around about why HCG works. The bottom line is that this hormone evolved to direct the bodies of pregnant women to use their own fat as a source of calories for the developing fetus. Dr. Simeons simply discovered that this hormone will do the same thing in women who are not pregnant, as well as in men. It directs the body to use up calories from fat. That is the fundamental explanation.
The following describes some basic facts about HCG that are not widely known among the dieters on this program, nor among most doctors. HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin. It is best known as a pregnancy hormone that is produced by the embryo soon after conception. HCG is the hormone that is used to test for pregnancy.
When produced during pregnancy, HCG is meant to help the corpus luteum remain intact. The corpus luteum, which is part of the ovary, is integral in maintaining production of the progesterone that is an important component of human pregnancy. In addition to preventing the disintegration of the corpus luteum, researchers believe that HCG provides pregnant women with extra immunity during pregnancy.
The high levels of HCG that are produced during pregnancy have no negative effects on the pregnant woman’s body. In fact, doctors have used HCG for many years in order to help women who are experiencing hormonal issues or fertility problems.
More recently, however, researchers have found that HCG can actually help the body burn fat and can be used to aid in weight loss when combined with a healthy low calorie diet and a moderate exercise routine. This discovery confirmed the work of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, who used HCG plus a 500-calorie per day diet to direct the bodies of overweight people to burn fat instead of muscle. Although HCG is associated with pregnancy, it can safely be used by both men and women that are looking to get their weight under control.
Several other positive side effects have also become associated with HCG therapy. These include:
- Increased energy without experience a sense of nervousness
- Clearer thought processes
- Improved sleep at night
- Feeling less irritable
QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
1. Where do I get HCG?
hCG is a natural substance that is produced in the human body during pregnancy.
Pharmaceutical companies extract this substance from the urine of pregnant women.
It is purified and made into pharmaceutical grade hCG. Although it is a natural
substance, it is classified as a.drug and available by prescription only. You must
get hCG from a medical doctor with a prescription. The FDA has not approved hCG
to be used in weight loss treatment but it is not illegal. According to the FDA, it is in
fact, legal for doctors in America to prescribe medications for purposes that are not
approved by the FDA.
Q. Is it harmful in any way?
A. No. During pregnancy it is produced daily in a quantity a few hundred thousand times the amount used for the treatment of obesity, yet it harms neither the mother nor the child.
2. What if I just did the diet without the hCG injections?
Many double-blind studies have been conducted that give the answer to this question.
If you just do the diet without the hCG injections, you will, in fact lose weight. The problem is, during the diet you will be losing muscle and structural fat; you will not lose any of the abnormal fat deposits in the problem areas. Your body will not be reshaped and re-sculpted. When you finish the diet your metabolism will be lower than before and your hunger higher than before. You will not have achieved the results you want.
3. What does the FDA say about hCG?
They state that .HCG has no known affect on fat mobilization, reducing appetite or
sense of hunger, or body fat distribution.. They further state, .HCG has not been
demonstrated to be an effective adjunct therapy in the treatment of obesity and does
not increase fat losses beyond that resulting from caloric restriction.. They even say
specifically that, hCG should never be used in the treatment of obesity because
serious problems can occur.. These statements are blatantly and flagrantly false.
There is absolutely no documentation or substantiations backing up and proving that
these negative statements are true. Dr. Simeons was very clear that if the protocol
was not followed exactly as described, the results would not be achieved.
The truth is that in all properly conducted studies, people on the diet with HCG have,
in fact, lost both weight and inches. These dieters have seen a dramatic reshaping
and re-sculpting of their bodies. They have lost fat in the problem areas.
4. My doctor says this won’t work and is not safe.
Find another doctor. If your doctor has not personally treated patients using the
Simeons .weight loss cure protocol, exactly and precisely as instructed, how would
he know whether the protocol was effective and safe?
5. Is it true that 500 calories a day is too low to be safe?
No. Research now confirms that eating very low calorie diets actually increase
overall health, have anti-aging effects, and increase lifespan. This was reported
recently in The New York Times. Most importantly, however, is when you are doing
the diet combined with the hCG injections, Dr. Simeon’s reports that your body is
being flooded with over 2,000 calories of nutrition from the releasing of the abnormal
fat reserves. This is one of the reasons that during the diet, consisting of the diet and
hCG injections, you are not hungry and generally have an increase in energy levels.
6. During the diet am I allowed to take supplements and prescription medication?
Yes, it is the view of this clinic that in order to maintain a healthy nutritional balance
you should use supplementation. Our clinic will make recommendations based on
your medical intake package or blood work (if provided) of supplements that will help
you achieve an even greater weight loss. It is also imperative that you continue to
take any necessary prescription medication that your primary doctor has ordered.
8. Must I gorge for the first two days of the diet?
Yes. Dr. Simeons states that a person will not be comfortable on the 500 calorie diet
unless his normal fat reserves are reasonably well stocked. It is for this reason that
in every case a person must eat to capacity the most fattening food they can get down
for the first two days in Phase 2. It is a fundamental mistake to start the 500 calorie
diet as soon as hCG injections are started as it seems to take about three injections
before abnormal fat deposits begin to get released and circulate, thus becoming
available to the body as fuel.
9. How do I measure the 100 grams of protein?
Use a kitchen scale or postal scale. 100 grams equals about 3.6 ounces. Weigh the
meat in its raw state.
10. Can I substitute smoked fish, pickled fish or deli meats?
Absolutely not, nothing smoked, dried, or pickled. Never use deli meats. The meats
must be of the leanest variety. If at all possible, buy organic as it will be free of all of
the hormones, antibiotics and other animal drugs which slowdown or stop the fat
burning process. Try to buy wild fish and not farm raised fish for the same reasons
as above. Eating beef and veal that is not grass fed and 100% organic will slow
down or stop the fat burning process.
11. Can I mix vegetables?
No, with one exception. You can make a salad consisting of various organic lettuces,
organic cabbage, organic spinach, organic celery, organic onions, organic
cucumbers, organic radishes, and organic tomatoes. Season with organic raw apple
cider vinegar, or the juice of one-half an organic lemon. Add sea salt, black pepper,
crushed garlic, in any amounts of dried or fresh organic herbs.
12. Can I change some of the food items on the diet?
No, you must be very strict in following the diet exactly if you want to achieve
results. Simeons was very particular in his research about how even the very
smallest change or variation would slow down or stop the fat burning process
completely. He said that the diet used in conjunction with the hCG injections must
not exceed 500 calories per day. He also stated that the way these calories are made
up is of the utmost importance. He pointed out that if a patient dropped the apple and
had a little more protein he would not be getting any more calories, but he would not
lose weight. There are a number of foods, particularly fruits and vegetables, which
have the same or even lower caloric values than those listed as permissible.
However, when substitutions are made Dr. Simeons found that they interfere with the
regular loss of weight under hCG. This is due to the nature of their chemical
13. Can I eat lamb, pork, duck, while on the 500 calorie diet?
14. Will I be hungry during this protocol?
During Phase 2 you may have slight hunger between one and seven days. If you
following the instructions to .load up on calories. the first two days, this will not be
as noticeable. Each person is different but for the most part the hunger is slight.
15. Can I use artificial sweeteners while on this protocol?
No. You should never use any artificial sweeteners. All artificial sweeteners, including NutraSweet and Splenda, should never be consumed. They increase depression, are physically, chemically addicting, and they make you fat.
An alternative to this problem is a product called .Stevia.. There is a website called
www.stevitastevia.com that has every conceivable stevia product available.
16. Can I use MSG (monosodium glutamate)?
No, you should never eat anything with MSG in it ever again as long as you live. It
is a deadly, dangerous excitotoxin. It increases depression, increases appetite, and
makes you fat.
17. While on the protocol can I use gum, mints, lozenges, or cough syrup?
18. If I am not hungry while doing the diet, do I still have to eat everything as described?
Yes. Whether you are hungry or not, you must eat the lunch and dinner in their
complete form. You cannot have one big meal per day. You may take the apple from
either lunch or dinner and eat it at breakfast. You may also take the fruit from
dinner and eat it for a mid-day snack. No other changes or substitutions are allowed
as they slow or stop the fat burning process.
19. What if I cheat on the diet during the diet?
If you do cheat for a meal or for one or two days in a row, all it means is that the
weight loss process will stop for a few days or a temporary slight increase in weight
may occur. Immediately start the diet again at the next meal and carry on. If you
cheat on a meal every other day you are wasting your time.
20. What if I have low energy or hunger during the diet?
Some patients may be dealing with insulin resistance or low blood sugar. It is
suggested that you may drink Eleotin tea to help this. Also, make sure that you eat
your apple mid morning. Low energy could also be caused by a hypoactive thyroid,
Candida yeast overgrowth, poor circulation, or parasites. If you feel any of this
pertains to you or if you have a concern, call the clinic and the matter will be referred
to one of our doctors. We have several suggestions that will ease all of those
21. Can I eat salt?
During all the phases salt may be consumes, however, always choose sea salt or
Himalayan salt. However, using too much salt can result in retention of water, which
will show up as increased weight on the scale.
22. The instructions in all the phases call for a large consumption of water and teas. Is
During all the phases you should drink a minimum of one-half gallon of water per
day, up to a maximum of one gallon. It is important in the treatment of the obesity
condition. The importance and benefits of adhering to the water cannot be
overemphasized. It is absolutely vital in order for the protocol to work effectively.
23. Must I eliminate cosmetics, moisturizers, lotions, and creams during the diet?
Yes. Dr. Simeons stated that most people find it hard to believe that the fats, oils,
creams, and ointments applied to the skin are absorbed into the body and interfere
with the weight reduction by hCG just as if those ingredients were eaten. This almost
incredible sensitivity to even such very minor increases in nutritional and caloric
intake is a peculiar feature of the hCG method. Simeons found that persons who
habitually handle fats, such as workers in beauty parlors, masseuses, butchers, etc.
never show a satisfactory loss of weight when using hCG unless they avoid all contact
with the skin of such fats and various products. Many modern cosmetics contain
hormones which interfere with endocrine regulations in the body and must be
24. What about abdominal exercises and aerobics?
Aerobic exercise has many health benefits. In terms of resetting the body weight set
point, walking one hour per day outside is much more effective. Aerobic exercise is
extremely healthy and beneficial and should be engaged in by everyone at any level
25. Will I gain the weight back?
If you go back to eating fast food, restaurant food, and food containing trans fats, high fructose corn syrup, highly refined food, artificial sweeteners, meat, poultry, and dairy with growth hormone and antibiotics etc. You will in fact mess up your hypothalamus again and regain the weight.
26. If the weight comes back can I do this protocol again?
Yes. If you lose a substantial amount of weight and a year later find you have gained
some weight back, do the protocol as often as you desire. Many people will decide to
do the protocol once a year for a three week period to lose any amount of weight
gained just to keep on top of it.
27. What if the food label says .all natural.?
Today, the phrase .all natural. means absolutely nothing! You must
read the ingredient list on the food. Look for 100% organic whenever is possible.
28. What if I show no weight loss for four days in a row?
Dr. Simeons discussed at length daily weight fluctuations or reaching weight
plateaus. He explained that at times there may be no drop of weight at all for two or
three days, which is then followed by a sudden large drop which reestablishes the
normal daily average of about one pound per day during Phase 2. Weight
fluctuations occur more so in women than i8n men. If a person weighs themselves
and notices that the weight stays the same for four days in a row, the patient is told
that after weighing on the fourth morning, to only eat six organic apples for the day.
The patient is told to drink nothing except a small amount of water, just enough to
quench their thirst when needed. Two cups of corn silk tea should be consumed. The
next morning there should be a drop in weight. If not, do not be concerned. It is
important to note that because this protocol is synthesizing and releasing so such
abnormal fat, the body may retain excessive water in order to rid the system of this
excess released fat and accompanying toxins. This, at times, results in no apparent
weight loss on the scale, however, you must know that the body is still being
reshaped, and massive fat loss is still occurring.
NOTE: There are two questions that we ask immediately when the above situation
arises. The first question for women is; Are you having a period or are you close to
having a period? (This seems to cause water retention and as soon as the period is
over, the weight is lost.) The second question is; How are your bowel movements?
(If you are not having regular daily bowel movements you are retaining weight. It is
recommended that you take a supplement or a tea that will help you become regular
again.) This, too, should make your weight start dropping again.https://plus.google.com/100390957884749139687
