During the 1930′s, HCG was given to children who had been diagnosed with Frolich’s syndrome, a rare childhood metabolic disorder marked by obesity and slowed growth of the genital organs resulting from tumors in the hypothalamus gland. HCG not only treated the slowed growth of the genitalia but also resulted in weight loss by patients to which it was administered.
Dr. A.T.W. Simeons observed these results and began giving HCG to people that were obese but did not have Frolich’s syndrome. He found that, while patient’s appetites were being diminished and their hips and waist sizes decreased, they were not losing weight. HCG was changing the fat from abnormal fat (fat in the thighs, buttocks, and mid-section) to structural fat (fat that cushions organs and the bottoms of the feet).
After studying in third world countries and observing that women on very low calorie diets (VLCDs) were giving birth to healthy babies, he decided to experiment with HCG combined with a VLCD, and had very positive results. The initial effects of the HCG were still seen (fat was changing from abnormal to structural fat and patients were experiencing diminished appetite) and the abnormal fat was being burned to maintain lean muscle mass. His patients were losing the weight and keeping it off.
He published his findings in a manuscript he titled “Pounds and Inches; A New Approach to Obesity”. He labeled obesity as the disorder that causes overeating (not the other way around) and provided a step by step plan, including his revolutionary diet, for its cure.
HCG is now being rediscovered by the public. It is the number one searched term on Google and thousands have reported positive results after completion. Those with more than 15 pounds to lose often find that they do not even need the 500 calories allotted due to the increased energy provided from the B vitamins in HCG supplements as well as energy from abnormal fat being burned.
So why hasn’t the HCG diet been advertised during the past 50 years? While conspiracy theorists point to cover-ups, the most likely culprit is lack of education and publicity. Fitness professionals do not agree with the ‘no-or-low exercise’ regimen. The truth is, HCG is simply a stepping stone to getting to better health. It will provide you with the weight-loss you desire with minimal effort and allow you to begin a healthier lifestyle.
