Let’s review the history and the overview of the hCG diet. The hCG diet was put into practice by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in the early 1950s. He noticed that undernourished mothers were giving birth to healthy babies. His investigation led him to the conclusion that the hormone hCG enabled the unborn children to feed off the mothers’ stored fats and carbohydrates.
Dr. Simeons established a practice in Rome, and perfected the hCG protocol. There he devoted many years to the science of weight loss, and his practice developed a reputation for rapid and sustained weight loss, particularly with obese patients. It was also observed that his patients had little to no side effects.
For many years he practiced medicine in Rome, developing a diet regimen that consisted of a very controlled, low calorie diet combines with the low dose administration of hCG. The consistent result was that his patients presented with rapid and significant weight loss.
Despite the low calorie diet over an extended period, The Doctor noted that his patients did not suffer the side effects associated with such a low caloric intake. Namely, hunger pains, headaches, irritability, and weakness. Not only were their side effects reduced, they also kept this rapid weight off.
hCG is a critical element in the hCG diet. The role of hCG in the body during the diet, is to allow the body to draw from its stored fats, during a time of low caloric intake. The body can burn as much as 2000 calories a day from these fats. This is why the weight loss is so substantial and happens over such a short period. This is also part of the reason why the patient does not feel hungry during the low calorie diet.
It is important to mention at this point that the hCG diet should be doctor supervised. It is important to realize that the weight loss from this diet can be dramatic. Thus, vital conditions such as diabetes, blood pressures and the medications that regulate them should be monitored.
All hCG injections must be subscribed by a physician. The MD determines what the dosage will be. All hCG injections are pharmaceutical grade, and a controlled quality product. The dose is given daily, preferably in the mornings, and is self-administered much in the same way that
The diet is strict from the standpoint of calories consumed, and dieters are encouraged to eat organic and for the first 23 to 28 days only carbohydrates, sugars, alcohol, and dairy products are not allowed.
Many manufacturers claim to offer hCG in drops, creams, and tablets. These are not hCG products. These products are homeopathic supplements and not hCG. The only way that hCG is available in the U.S. is by a Doctor’s prescription.
In summary, the hCG diet is an excellent and quick way to lose weight.
