History of Dr. Simeons & the hCG Diet

              

In 1967, Dr. Albert T. Simeons, a British-born physician, became the founder of a weight loss program that used a medication called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), a hormone produced when a woman becomes pregnant. Dr. Simeon discovered that if hCG can utilize the body’s own fat reserves for nutrition to the baby in periods of deprivation, than a small amount administered daily in non-pregnant women and men may assist in weight loss.
Dr. Simeons is credited for having first discovered the use of hCG for weight loss. While practicing medicine in Rome, he devoted many years to the study of obesity and ultimately published his report extolling the benefits of hCG in 1954.

Dr. Simeons was mostly impressed by hCG because it could be paired with a low calorie diet without causing the same side effects commonly associated with low calorie diets. For example, Dr. Simeons noticed that his patients could drastically reduce their caloric intake without experiencing irritability, hunger pains, headaches, or weakness while also taking hCG.
Dr. Simeons was born in London and graduated in medicine (summa cum laude) at the University of Heidelberg. After post-graduate studies in Germany and Switzerland he was appointed to a large surgical hospital near Dresden. Later he became engrossed in the study of tropical diseases, and joined the School of Tropical Medicine in Hamburg. In 1931 he went to India, where he found himself so fascinated by the country and its health problems that he stayed for eighteen years.

Questions & Answers
Q: WHAT IS hCG?
 
A: HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, is found in both men and women, and is a glycoprotein hormone produced predominantly during pregnancy. Its role is to prevent the disintegration of the corpus luteum of the ovary and thereby maintain progesterone production that is critical for a healthy pregnancy and for protecting the growing fetus. Dr. Simeons, an English physician, believed that by injecting small doses of HCG into men or "non-pregnant" women, it could reprogram the hypothalamus and mobilize abnormal fat cells while on a 500 calorie diet. Dr. Simeons dedicated a good portion of his life to the study of obesity, and he is credited as being the Founder of the hCG Diet Protocol.
                                                                                      
Q: Why can't I just do the 500 calorie diet or the drops alone?
 
A: With the minimum dose, or law of infinitesimals, Hahnemann believed that a substance’s strength and effectiveness increased the more it was diluted. Minuscule doses were prepared by repeatedly diluting the active ingredient by factors of 10. A “6X” preparation (the X is the Roman numeral for 10) is a 1-to-10 dilution repeated six times, leaving the active ingredient as one part per million. Essential to the process of increasing potency while decreasing the actual amount of the active ingredient is vigorous shaking after each dilution. Some homeopathic remedies are so dilute, no molecules of the healing substance remain. Even with sophisticated technology now available, analytical chemists may find it difficult or impossible to identify any active ingredient. The homeopathic belief is that the substance has left its memory imprint or "essence" that stimulates the body to heal itself. What is this "memory imprint"? Homeopaths say it is electromagnetic waves of the active ingredient it once contained. They say that vigorous shakings between each dilution make this memory possible.
 
 
 
Q: Can I Do the Diet More Than Once?
 
A: Yes, you may continue with the diet and hCG drops, according to the protocol, until you reach your target weight
 
Q:  What is Homeopathy?
 
A:  The word Homeopathy comes from two Greek words “homoios” meaning similar and “pathos” meaning disease or suffering. It is based on the law of “Likes Cure Likes” and was first formulated by the renowned German physician Samuel Hahnemann in 1789. A minimal, homeopathic dose of a natural substance (plant, animal, or mineral) which would normally cause symptoms (such as poison ivy from exposure to the poison ivy plant) in a healthy person, when given to a sick person exhibiting those symptoms, will effect a cure. For example, this is why people can often take homeopathic Rhus toxicodendron (poison ivy plant) to cure their allergic reaction to poison ivy.
 
Q:  Does Diluting a Substance Make It Less Potent?
 
A:  With the minimum dose, or law of infinitesimals, Hahnemann believed that a substance’s strength and effectiveness increased the more it was diluted. Minuscule doses were prepared by repeatedly diluting the active ingredient by factors of 10. A “6X” preparation (the X is the Roman numeral for 10) is a 1-to-10 dilution repeated six times, leaving the active ingredient as one part per million. Essential to the process of increasing potency while decreasing the actual amount of the active ingredient is vigorous shaking after each dilution. Some homeopathic remedies are so dilute, no molecules of the healing substance remain. Even with sophisticated technology now available, analytical chemists may find it difficult or impossible to identify any active ingredient. The homeopathic belief is that the substance has left its memory imprint or "essence" that stimulates the body to heal itself. What is this "memory imprint"? Homeopaths say it is electromagnetic waves of the active ingredient it once contained. They say that vigorous shakings between each dilution make this memory possible
.
Q: Does HCG Need to be Refigerated?
 
A: NO. HCG does not need to be refrigerated because it is homeopathic and mixed with colloidal mineral water as part of its liquid medium. However, HCG should not be exposed to the sun or extreme heat.
 
 
Q: How Long is the Program?
 
A: We have 3 different diet programs, depending on how much weight you want to lose. We have a 14-day program, a 25-30 day program, and a 43 day program. You should never go longer than 43 days in a cycle, however you can repeat the diet after being off the drops for at least 6 week.
 
 
Q:  How Safe is Homeopathy?
 
A:  Homeopathic remedies are a unique, potentized energy medicine, drawn from the plant, mineral and animal worlds. They are diluted to such a degree that not one molecule of the original substance can be detected. They work by gently boosting the natural energy of the body, and are very safe, even for pregnant and sensitive patients. There is no danger of addiction or toxicity
 
Q: After Losing the Weight Will I Keep It Off?
 
A: You should, as long as you follow the protocol. The 3-week Maintenance Cycle (Phase 3) is critical to resetting your metabolism and keeping the weight off. Make sure to complete the entire Maintenance Cycle. The HCG diet is more than just losing weight, it's about creating a healthier lifestyle and making better food choices. If you go back to the same eating habits you had before, your chances of gaining the weight back increase.
 
Q: What About My Regular Medications?
A: As with any weight loss program, we recommend that you consult with your doctor before beginning the protocol.
 
Q: Will I Be Hungry While I Am on the hCG Protocol?
 
A: Most people find that even on the low-calorie diet, their hunger is restricted to the time just before they are about to eat anyway. The way that the hCG works ensures that your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs from your fat stores. You can be very creative about how you can use your daily calories.
 
Q: Will I Feel Tired or Lethargic While My Caloric Intake is So Low?
 
A: Because your body is receiving good nutrition from your fat stores, you may actually feel more energized. Some people actually feel a sense well-being or even slight euphoria while on the protocol.
 
Q: I am a vegetarian. Can I do the HCG diet?
 
A: Yes. Vegetarians can have great success with the HCG diet. Weighing and monitoring your foods is the key here. There are some great protein substitutes such as boca burgers and tofu. Egg whites and cottage cheese (100 grams) can also be substituted as protein but not suggested to replace every protein with egg whites. See below:
 
VEGETARIANS & THE hCG DIET             
The HCG diet was developed by British Endocrinologist Dr. A.T.W. Simeon in the 1950s. Today the diet is enjoying a revival in popularity and despite the controversy of the effectiveness of HCG, dieters are continually having success and reporting steady loss of weight and re-sculpting of their bodies as a result of the abnormal fat loss.
The diet does, however, present some challenges for some, especially vegetarians when presented with the different protein foods approved in the diet. It’s hard to find alternatives to meat. The diet is not vegetarian-friendly but there ARE options, and the diet CAN be successfully done by vegetarians.
For those vegetarians that eat dairy products, Dr. Simeon recommends taking 500cc. of skim milk each day. Vegetarians who eat eggs may substitute 1 whole egg with the whites of three additional eggs served boiled or poached. They could also eat 1/2 cup of non-fat cottage cheese or non-fat plain yogurt as long as there is no added sugar.
Due to a high starch content, typical vegetable proteins such as beans, rice, nuts or wheat is not recommended. But if you are ok with soy products, soymilk might be an acceptable option to skim milk (cow milk), but again you would have to find a brand that is sugar-free.
Some vegetarians eat seafood, and things like shrimp, crab, lobster, prawns, crawfish or whitefish can be substituted for the chicken or beef called for in the traditional protocol. This will affect overall weight loss, however, and strict vegetarians should expect to lose about 1/2 the normal weight loss of non-vegetarians who are eating chicken and beef on the diet.
To keep your body healthy while on the diet, taking an additional vitamin/mineral supplement is recommended. You body’s supply of nutrients need to be replenished each day, and you shouldn’t rely solely on the foods you eat to give you the full spectrum of essential vitamins and minerals that build your blood and bones, and keep your body at peak performance, especially when your caloric intake is limited to 500 calories per day.
Whether you are vegetarian or not, drinking ample supply of fluids is critical. Dr. Simeons’ program calls for all the coffee or tea you want but with no added sugar. However, you can use Stevia (available in most grocery stores)(also available at the office of Dr. Steve McGee) in place of sugar, but no other artificial sweeteners are recommended. You are allowed to have the juice of one full lemon or lime each day, so you might squeeze some of it into your tea in the morning and then some of it into your water for drinking throughout the rest of the day.
If you are a strict vegetarian, the HCG diet might be a little more challenging to navigate, but not impossible, and if you’re flexible about the proteins you eat, you will most likely find better results.
 
Q: Is There Anything I Can Use As A Sugar Substitute?
      
A: Yes. We recommend  Stevia in powdered or liquid form. There are 14 or more flavors in the liquid Stevia. Most of the time we keep these “in-stock” for your shopping convenience, and are great sugar substitutes. They are 100% natural and allowed on the HCG diet. Do NOT use other sugar substitues such as Splenda, and avoid anything with Aspartame. Dr. Steve McGee now keeps these in stock for his patients.
 
Q: What if I cheated on the diet? Do I start all over again with my “GORGE” days?
A: No, you do not need to start over. Just continue the next day with the diet. Don’t get discouraged.
 
Q: When and How Often Should I Weigh Myself?
 
 
A: Checking your weight on day 3 or at phase II is best. Everyone deserves to see their progress. Weigh yourself in the mornings, after you have emptied your bladder with no clothes or very little clothes. During Phase III (maintenance) you will want to weigh yourself every day to make sure you do not have large fluctuations in weight while your body is stabilizing.
 
Q: Is this the "real" hCG?
A: Yes. Depending on what company you buy from, homeopathic hCG may be made from real, human hormone, or it may be manufactured synthetically. Do NOT settle for cheap substitues, as they may contain synthetic hCG or animal DNA.  Several people have gone on he internet in search of hCG at a lower price.  In fact, "price" is no gurantee of quality.  NOT ALL hCG products are created equal.  Therefore you may not get the desired results if using an infeior grade of hCG.   Our hCG is made from only the Highest Quality, Professional-Grade raw materials Available.
 
Q: Where Does Your hCG Come From?
A: Our hCG is manufactured, bottled and safety-sealed in an FDA-Certified facility here in the United States.
          
 
Q: Is it Ok to Skip A Meal or Protein at One of My Meals?
 
A: No, you don't ever want to skip any of your meals. Its important to eat all of your 500 calories and especially your protein so that you only lose fat and not muscle.
 
Do I Need to Exercise While I'm on the HCG Diet?
 
Light exercise is recommended, but not required. Our suggestion for those who want to exercise is that you walk for 20 to 30 minutes each day. Walking is great exercise and contributes to your health in a number of different ways. It helps relieve stress, keeps the bowels moving, conditions your cardiovascular system, and promotes better blood/oxygen circulation. On a 500 calorie diet, intense exercise can make you exhausted, which in turn, can just cause frustration and unnecessary stress. When you are finished with the hCG diet regimen and are back on a regular diet you can then pick up the intensity of
your regular exercise routines? 
 
                                       Q:  How HCG Works to Burn Fat 
 
A:  hCG works with your brain's hypothalamus to release and mobilize abnormal fat and allow it to be consumed as an energy source. When used in conjunction with the 500 calorie diet, the difference in calories of what your body needs and what you eat in food, the body burns from the abnormal stored fat. This results in extreme rapid weight loss. The Dr Simeons protocol helps you establish a lower “setpoint” body weight. Our hCG does not negatively affect the healthy fat or muscle mass.
 
 The Three Types of Fat in the Human Body:
 
1. Structural fat: This necessary fat fills the gaps between organs and limbs, and it acts as a sort of "packing material" for the body, for example the fat on the bottom of your feet.
2. Subcutaneous or "Normal" Fat: This is the fat directly under the skin, and the type we see and notice most. It's what makes is look "flabby". It is the fat the body utilizes most easily when nutritional intake is less than what the body demands and is the fat that is easiest to burn through regular exercise.
3. Visceral or "Abnormal" Fat: The most dangerous type of fat, its excessive accumulations can run throughout the body, surrounding organs, causing obesity and increasing the risk of a number of diseases (i.e., cardiovascular disease, liver disease, diabetes). While exercising or restricting food intake allows the body to utilize normal fat reserves, the body can't access the abnormal fat accumulations as easily. That is why abnormal fat is so hard to get rid of, even with exercise.
 
The Key:
 
The use of hCG triggers the release of abnormal fat deposits and makes the fat available for consumption by the body as energy.
Our clients taking hCG lose up to 1-2 lbs. each day, if they are following the protocol. Because the hCG hormone makes the abnormal fat available, the body begins living off the abnormal fat. The fat provides a source of energy for the body, just as food does.
Even though clients reduce "actual" food intake to 500 calories per day, hunger is not noticed because 3,500 additional calories are consumed each day by the body by using abnormal fat stores as fuel, and our hCG formulation curbs the appetite, reducing hunger pangs.
 
Q:  What is the Hypothalamus?
 
A:  The hypothalamus is a part of the diencephalon area of our brain. This is the vital part of the brain which controls all of the autonomic functions of the body, including breathing, heart beat, digestion, sleep and the complex functions of the endocrine system. One of the many functions of the endocrine system is regulation and control of your metabolism and weight.

 

The hCG Diet Protocol

 Since its discovery in the 1950's by Dr. ATW Simeons, small doses of hCG have been given to overweight men and women to decrease their appetite and help them lose weight specifically around their hips, thighs, buttocks and stomach. Download Dr. Simeons' book, Pounds and Inches, free!

(Optional): 

Before starting your hCG diet, it is recommended that you do a simple detox or colon cleanse, however, this is not mandatory. Your local health food or nutrition store can recommend a proper product for you if you decide to do the detox. 

(Days 1-2):
BINGE! Eat what you want and begin taking hCG , 10 drops, 3x per day, 30 min before eating. Hold drops under your tongue for at least 15 minutes for maximum absorption. Eat anything and everything you can….especially foods high in fat. Sounds crazy but this "loading" phase, is crucial to the fat burning in Phase 2.
 
(Days 3-43)(with maximm being 43 days):
 
Begin STRICT 500 Calorie Diet and continue taking hCG. Drink at least 64 oz. of water daily (can also drink coffee or tea). This will help with your detox. We recommend adding flavored liquid Stevia to your water, over ice for a tasty drink. You’ll love it plus it is good for you (no calories either !)
For lunch and dinner stick to 3 approved food choices. (1 fruit, 1 protein, 1 vegetable). Use the following menu/eating pattern each day:
1. Breakfast: NO FOOD. Can drink water, coffee, or tea
2. Morning snack: One fruit(if needed)
3. Lunch: 3.5 ounces (100 grams) of protein (1 vegetable, 1 Melba toast(optional), 1 fruit (if not eaten as snack earlier)
4. Dinner: The same three choices as lunch.
5. Evening snacks: One fruit (if not eaten for dinner)
 
Recommended foods limited to list below:

PROTEIN
(3.5 oz or 100g - pre-cooked):
All visible fat must be carefully removed before cooking, and the meat must be weighed raw. It must be cooked without additional fat. Veal 100 calories, Steak 135 calories, Ground Beef (Extra Lean Only) 210 calories, Chicken Breast 110 calories, Fresh White Fish 115 calories, Lobster 095 calories, Crab 055 calories, Shrimp 090 calories, Tuna (packed in water) 105 calories.

                                      FRUIT:    
1 Apple (not 2 small apples) 080 calories,1 Orange 060 calories, 7-10 small Strawberries 035 calories, 1/2 Grapefruit 080 calories.

VEGETABLES:
1 cup Spinach or Chard 007 calories,1 cup Lettuce of any kind 008 calories,1 medium Tomato 026 calories, 1 cup Celery 017 calories, 1 cup Onions 061 calories, 1 cup Radishes 023 calories, 1 medium Cucumber 024 calories, 1 cup Asparagus 031, calories, 1 cup Cabbage 016 calories.

CRACKERS: (Optional)
Melba Toast Rounds 020 calories, or 1 Grissini Breadstick 020 calories

 
(first 3 weeks)         
 
This is a Maintenance Phase. You can now begin to add more food back into your diet, just be sure to avoid sugar and starch for 3 weeks. It is best to add foods back in one at a time so you can see how your body reacts to each item. You can now have dairy, fats and oils, nuts, etc. Consult your Pocket Guide for ‘allowed’ foods and their quantity. Beware of extra sweet fruit like bananas and mangoes during this first 3-weeks.
After you have successfully stabilized your weight, you are ready to add all normal foods back into your diet(after this first 3 weeks), including bread and other starchy foods like potatoes, as well as food containing sugar, like mangoes, bananas, and sweets (in moderation, of course). You will have developed a taste for healthy foods, and it will be much easier for you to make good eating decisions at this point than it used to.
 

You must continue to weigh yourself each morning, and if you ever go 2 pounds above your lowest achieved weight, a "steak day" (see Helpful Tips on our website www.stopdroplose.com ) will put you back within your range, but it is important to do the steak day on the same day as the gain. Otherwise it is not as effective. You can maintain your new weight forever by following this simple system. 

(2nd. three weeks of Maintenance)

Now you can begin to add back some sugars and starches and maybe some nuts.  Consult your "Pocket Guide" for amounts allowed on this scond 3-weeks of Maintnence.  Be careful with potatoes, bananas and foods conaining sugars.  Sugar is NOT your friend !  It taste good but results in toxins and 'critters' to be stored in our body.

 

Keeping it Off !

After you have reached your weight loss goals, how do you KEEP it off? Especially when we live in a culture where we are constantly bombarded with advertisements that push delicious-looking, fat-filled, obesity-producing food in our faces every single day. We hear it on the radio; see it on TV and on billboards and even in newspapers. So how do you transition from being on the hCG Diet, making good eating choices, to going back to normal eating habits, without getting into the same bad habits that caused your unhealthy weight gain in the first place?

Habits...habits are made and broken in a 14-day time period. During your experience you have created NEW, healthy eating habits. If you go right back to eating bad foods, you will most likely find yourself feeling sick shortly after, and you will realize that your body actually craves healthier foods. And hopefully,  you have noticed how much better you feel than you did before. However, if you continue down that path, eating those bad foods, your body will adjust again, and you will slowly learn to find comfort in the sugars and starches that do your body harm.

It comes down to making a choice. The hCG Diet is not just about losing weight. It's about a lifestyle change. If you cannot commit to leaving the unhealthly lifestyle and destructive eating habits that you participated in before your diet, then you can expect your body to decline again as it previously did. It is not easy to change, especially in a society that thrives on fast-food and sweets. But it is definitely worth it to take care of your body, and to reap the rewards of feeling Great, and looking great. Take time to educate yourself on the causes of obesity, and surround yourself with people that want to share the same healthy lifestyle that you do. You can also consult your physician or other professionals that will help you stay on the path to a new, healthier, happier you. We also recommend the following books by Dr. Paul Bragg:
