The hCG Diet Protocol and Weight Loss Program, discovered and created by
Dr. ATW Simeons in the 1950's, has the potential to permanently cure the condition of having too much body fat. Normal fat is subcutaneous (under the skin) and is where the body stores excess fat or energy fuel. These fat cells respond to energy regulating hormones like insulin, adrenalin and others through receptors on their surfaces. After eating, food is absorbed into the blood stream causing an increase in energy. This rise in energy then causes changes in hormones which serve to push that extra energy into subcutaneous fat cells for storage. Between meals, the body releases some of its stored energy into the bloodstream. This flow of energy back and forth between blood and subcutaneous fat cells is regulated by your hormones, creating an ideal balance between energy storage and available energy on demand.
Today's problem lies in consuming more food energy than is needed by the body. This extra energy fills up the subcutaneous fat cells and the excess starts accumulating in the blood, which causes a rise in sugar and fat levels. Belly fat (a common fat storage place) is used to protect the organs, not store energy because it does not have receptors to respond to energy demands. Typical diet supplements suppress appetite but cannot break down excess belly fat, which is why diets do not work. hCG is a pregnancy hormone. When a woman is pregnant, she usually has about 1000-2000 times more hCG in her body than the standard dose for weight loss (125 IU/day). What does hCG do in a pregnant woman? One of the most important functions of hCG is probably to guarantee a steady energy supply to the fetus.
Whenever your body detects a decrease in the daily food intake (like when you decide to start eating less than 800 calories each day), the body will slow its metabolism to begin conserving more energy. However the reverse is not true, and we were not designed with a mechanism to deal with the times when there is too much food intake.
Ideally, when we become overweight or obese a mechanism should kick in to slow down or stop our desire for more food. But overweight or obese people will not only be unable to slow down their eating, but they may even have greater appetites than those that are not obese.
What is hCG?
hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. One of its functions is to ensure the growing fetus receives enough nutrients to grow and develop normally. It does this by making the abnormal fat stored in the mother's body available for use. The mother's body is then able to use this fat for nutrients and energy despite her intake. This is why women suffering from morning sickness can gain weight and the baby does not
suffer. Pregnancy is the only time hCG is found in the body.
In the 1950's Dr. ATW Simeons discovered that small doses of hCG given to people decreased their appetite, and made them lose inches specifically around their hips, thighs, buttocks and stomachs. Today millions of people (obese and those wanting to shed a few quick pounds) use hCG for weight loss.
How Does hCG Work?
hCG taps into the body's stored fat and uses it. When combined with a calorie restricted diet (only 500 calories per day), the body must use this stored fat as an energy source. A person on this diet can burn up to 3500-4000 calories of stored fat daily which amounts to losing 1-2 pounds every day! How is this possible? The key is the hCG supplement taken daily. It releases stored fat for energy and suppresses appetite so that most people feel as if they are stuffing themselves on merely 500 calories a day.
*Trying this restricted calorie diet without the use of hCG would lead to trouble within 2-3 days. Side effects of starving yourself include insomnia, lethargy, headaches, loss of mental clarity, severe fatigue, and can cause serious health problems and even death. Do not attempt a 500 calorie per day diet without an hCG supplement.
hCG is taken as an oral supplement. A person on the hCG weight loss program can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per day. A person on the oral hCG diet can expect to eat 500 calories a day of protein, fruits and vegetables. Light exercise is acceptable and a brisk walk is normally recommended for light exercise. The weight loss program can be followed for 40 days or two 26-day programs.
Our hCG weight loss program involves physician directed therapy, blood monitoring, personal one-on-one care and a complete explanation of the foods you can eat. Call today to make an appointment and see if hCG is right for you!
