|Over the past few decades, HCG weight loss, the protocol developed by Dr. Simion, has been proven to be almost 100% effective for healthy weight loss if the diet is followed exactly as the protocol outlines. |
What is HCG? HCG stands for Human Choriogonadotropin, which is the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. Research suggests a small, daily hCG injection (approx. 125 IU to 200 IU) results in a weight loss of .5 to 2 lbs per day, and often more, when accompanied by a VLCD (very low calorie diet).
There are three kinds of distinguishable fat in the human body: Structural fat fills the gaps between various organs and is a sort of packing material. It also aids in vital functions in the body such as bedding the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, protecting the coronary arteries and also keeping the skin smooth and taut. In addition, structural fat provides the springy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet, without which we would be unable to walk.
Normal reserve is the second type of fat which is normal reserve of fuel upon which the body can freely draw when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insufficient to meet the demand. The normal reserves are localized all over the body. Fat packs the highest caloric value into the smallest space, which allows normal reserves of fuel for muscular activity as well as the maintenance of body temperature that can be most economically stored in this form.
Both structural and reserve fat are perfectly normal, and even if the body stocks them to capacity this can never be called obesity.
However, there is a third type of fat which is entirely abnormal. It is this particular accumulation of fat, and of this fat only, from which an overweight patient suffers. This abnormal fat also serves as a potential reserve of fuel, but unlike the normal reserves, it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. It is basically locked away in a inaccessible fat deposit.
In most other diets, when an obese patient tries to reduce weight by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. Then, when these are exhausted he begins to burn up the structural fat. However, the abnormal fat the patient has come to detest stays on and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Finally, their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. And that is one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences a human being can have.
If a female were to get pregnant and her doctor said "the baby is fine and I'm going to give you powerful vitamins, and we need to put you on a special diet consisting of no fat." What would happen is that her body would take all the internal body fat in order to feed the baby since there isn't any fat in the diet.
After hCG is introduced in to the body, it triggers a response in a part of the brain called the "diencephalon" to go ZAP the FAT. The result is that a person could lose 20 pounds of abnormal fat in a month. The reason hCG works for weight loss is attributed to the abnormal fat that is currently 'locked away' and unavailable to the body suddenly becomes available for energy in the same way a pregnant woman is able to utilize her body fat.
In the book "Pounds and Inches," by Dr. Simion, it explains how the hCG supplements weight loss works. The diet includes a very specific 500 calorie VLCD (Very Low Calorie Diet) that is strict in carbohydrates and fat. The HCG weight lost on this diet is permanent so that normal body weight is maintained if one returns to a normal diet after finishing the protocol, unlike most other yo-yo diets.
The HCG diet is only successful if external dietary fat is strictly reduced and the protocol developed by Dr. Simeons is followed exactly to allow the process of burning internal abnormal fat to occur. HCG weight loss was made popular by the controversial Kevin Trudeau, and for that reason is met with a bit of skepticism, but you can download Dr. Simeons' manuscript for free on our site and read for yourself why and how it works.
