Weight Loss

 

Physician Monitored HCG Diet

Discovered by Dr. Simeons


What is the HCG Diet?


The HCG weight loss protocol consists of a very low calorie diet (VLCD) accompanied by treatments of HCG, either oral or injected.  The average HCG dieter experiences rapid weight loss averaging 1 to 3 pounds per day.  In addition to loss of unwanted fat, the true benefit of the hCG protocol is its ability to help modify the dieter’s relationship with food and eating, resulting in easily maintained, long-term weight loss.


The use of hCG in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the British physician, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.


Dr. Simeons first published a report on the topic in 1954, while practicing in Rome, Italy.  He devoted years to researching various patients suffering from obesity.  During this time, Simeons noticed several important factors including the lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet.  For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with hCG.

Throughout his research, Dr. Simeons noted how patients lost significant amounts of weight while their bodies reshaped naturally - without exercise, and without effort.  This lead him to discover how patients lost more fat tissue directly from adipose tissue accumulations, causing highly visible contouring of the body.

HCG regulates the metabolism, correcting that which initially caused the obesity.

The medical term for hCG is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin.

Low Insulin Modification Diet

Eat some protein with every meal or snack.

What protein to eat?
Any meat, dairy, tofu, eggs, beans/legumes, and nuts are OK

Do not have any refined carbohydrates.  They convert quickly to sugar.
That means no sugar, flour, cookies, cakes, candies, pies, crackers, pretzels,     potatoes, pasta, cereal, chips or any kind, or sodas (including unsweetened).
If you eat rice, make it wild rice, NOT white or brown.

Cut way down on your breads.  You can eat 1-2 slices of high-fiber bread or 1-2     non-corn tortillas a day, but stay away from white or processed breads.
No corn.

Eat as much vegetables and salads as you like.

Whole fleshy fruits and nuts are OK.  No bananas, dried fruit, juices, honey or     molasses.

When you eat fruit, your body has to break down its fibrous matrix to release its     sugars.  Also, there is less sugar in the fruit you eat at one time than in one     glass of juice.  This prevents the high insulin spike that you would get when     drinking it in juice form.

When you eat, you should have at least 2/3 of your meal as fruits and/or vegetables and no more than 1/3 as protein.  It is OK to go on a high-protein diet where your protein exceeds 1/3 of your daily intake; however, we do not encourage this type of diet over a long period of time.

Cut down on your caffeine intake from coffee or soda.  Tea in moderation is     alright.

If you stick closely to these recommendations, you don’t have to worry about fat or oil intake.

However, if you continue to have significant intake of sugars and starches and high     consumption of fats, you may increase your weight, risk of heart disease,     high blood pressure, diabetes, and other chronic diseases.

You may start to feel more energy as you continue the diet and the energy usually increases more noticeably around two or three months. Weight is not the only marker for changes in our body.  Most people notice a change in the way their clothes fit and they sleep better.  Bowel problems improve and aches/pains and allergies often get better.
