HCG Diet Before and After Pictures #HCG #Diet #HCGDiet #Obesity

Like many of my patients, Mrs. Alecia Scott has had a life changing experience since she started the HCG Diet. In this testimonial she describes how her migraine headaches disappeared entirely. It has been very interesting for me to observe how many other patients reported other unexpected improvements in their health. These include patients with symptoms of fibromyalgia, blood pressure, diabetes, any many other diseases.

“I am a Real Estate Agent at Remax Realty Centre in Olney MD. My experience using the HCG diet plan was amazing and I have been thrilled with the results.

After gaining over 30 pounds in 3 years I just couldn’t seem to slow down the weight gain and I was not having any success at being able to stick with traditional diets.

I found out about the HCG diet on YouTube while looking for motivation through others’ weight loss success stories. I was skeptical at first and searched endlessly for possible negative side effects and could find none.

I decided to take the plunge and do the diet, it was easy to follow and my appetite and cravings halted with no adverse symptoms that I’ve experienced with other diet aids, in fact I had a wonderful sense of well being. With the help of Dr. Bloem and HCG I was able to shed an incredible 33lbs in 50 days!

The most amazing thing about the HCG diet is that I have been able to maintain my weight loss without issue, I have never been able to do that in the past. My appetite and cravings continue to be diminished and I no longer feel the need to abuse my system with excess sugars real and fake or to other processed foods to which I had become addicted.

I also discovered that while on HCG my migraine headaches disappeared entirely and I was suffering those several times a month. HCG truly is an amazing diet and I am incredibly grateful for having found it, it really has changed my life and being able to have shared it with so many others has been a blessing. If you have tried everything else and lost hope that anything will work before giving up try HCG.”

The HCG Diet Has Changed My Life #HCG #Diet #HCGDiet

One of my patients wrote the following testimonial. With a height of 5′ 4″ (1.63 m) her starting weight of 195 lbs. (88.6 kg)  had severely compromised her sense of health and well being. By the time she wrote this she had lost about 20 lbs.

“This is not a paid advertisement:), but an honest, from the heart testimonial.  The HCG diet is amazing. It has changed my life. I have hope again that soon I will be a smaller and better version of me.

For years I thought there was no hope, I would be a size 16+ forever. I am down 35 lbs., feel better than I have in 10+ years and see the light at the end of the tunnel. I still have 35 lbs. to go to get to my goal, but thanks to Dr.
Bloem, Alecia and all of my friends and family that have supported me, I am now in a size 12 and can finally shop at Ann Taylor Loft and not worry that the outfit won’t fit, because guess what? It will!!!

So for anyone who is worried that you will be hungry. You really aren’t! If you are, it is habit, not hunger. For anyone that is worried you will be tired because of the low calories…You won’t! You will have more energy than you have had in a long time! Besides that, my aches and pains are almost totally gone and food tastes better.”

Does Homeopathic HCG Work?

While I know a few people who have had success using homeopathic HCG drops, I don’t have enough experience in my practice to comment on its efficacy compared to real HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin).

I can say that I have had patients come to my practice after having disappointing results with the homeopathic HCG. Patients typically have a greater than 80-90% success rate if they follow the HCG Diet Protocol correctly and follow up with me consistently.

Here are some things to consider with regard to homeopathic HCG:

  • “Homeopathic HCG” is believed to contain the energetic imprint of HCG but does not actually contain HCG. It is made with a minute amount of HCG that is diluted millions of times following homeopathic manufacturing practices.
  • There are many websites that claim to sell oral HCG (which I am able to legally offer to my patients in my medical practice, in addition to injectable HCG, HCG cream, nasal HCG, and HCG tablets) but instead provide homeopathic HCG.
  • One of the most commonly sold brands of homeopathic HCG contains 16% USP Alcohol which would be unacceptable for some people for religious or medical reasons.

I recommend that people find an experienced physician who will do a thorough medical evaluation before prescribing HCG. Although the HCG Diet Protocol is very safe, it does requires close monitoring to ensure optimal results. Another benefit of working with a physician (especially one who holistically oriented) is that other health issues will be recognized and treated as well.

HCG Diet for Skinny People? Does Size 00 Equal Anorexia?

After reading I am down from a size 4-6 to a size 00 a few people sent messages like these:

“This is not good news. A size 4-6 is very small..a double 00 is anorexic and shouldn’t be supported in a clinical environment. Boo”

“Size 00? Sounds TOO THIN to me!”

It is not possible to make an adequate assessment without having evaluated the patient like I have and taking into consideration a patient’s body build, size, and body composition.

In conventional circles patients are not considered medically overweight until their BMI (body mass index) is over 25. Likewise, a person is not considered medically obese until their BMI is over 30. The BMI is determined by dividing a person’s weight (in kilograms) by their height (in meters) squared (kg/m2).

I do not use this definition when I work with my patients. I consider patients obese if they have abnormal fat deposits regardless of their weight.

For example, the small framed patient in the referenced article presented to me 5 feet tall with a weight of 107.2 lbs. Accordingly, her BMI was 21 and she was not able to find any physicians willing to treat her even though she had clear evidence of abnormal fat deposits in the area of her buttocks and her thighs.

Most clinicians with little experience in the evaluation and treatment of obesity would not even consider treating her until she was “medically overweight” at 128 lbs (BMI 25) or “medically obese” at 154 lbs (BMI 30). Why should a patient have to wait so long to qualify for obesity treatment?

This patient had a very good response to the HCG Diet Protocol and quickly lost 17 lbs of abnormal and unwanted fat deposits. This returned her to her normal young adult weight of 90 lbs (BMI 17.6).

Clinical evaluation confirmed that she had maintained her muscle mass and structural fat and she did not look anorexic at all. One of the primary benefits of the HCG Diet Protocol is that it targets the abnormal fat deposits without causing muscle atrophy or disappearance of structural fat in the face and other areas of the body that is typical patients who are anorexic.

It has been my experience that once patients have eliminated the abnormal fat deposits by using the HCG Diet Protocol they will stop losing weight and muscle mass and normal, structural fat are maintained. I have not seen any patients who became anorexic or who developed an anorectic appearance while under my care.

HCG Success: 50 Pounds lost in 4 Months

Ashley is a 24 year old woman who started the Dr. Simeons HCG Protocol earlier this year.  Her height is 5’9″ and her starting weight was 230 lbs. She chose to inject the HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin) intramuscularly daily for six weeks at a time.

After completing six weeks at the beginning of April 2009 she had lost 31 lbs and weighed 199 lbs.

At the end of May 2009 she started another round of HCG treatment and when she followed up in the office today she had lost another 20.2 lbs in 21 days. Today her weight was 178.2 lbs. She plans to complete a full six week round and then take a break for a while.

As Ashley started to lose weight she first lost most of the abnormal fat deposits in her upper body, including her face, chest, arms, and abdomen. Her hips and thighs were not reducing much initially. However, during the last round of treatment she noticed significant reductions in her hips and thighs.

Considerations for future treatment, besides HCG, include MIC injections for general mobilization and elimination of fat and L-Carnitine injections for site specific reduction of abnormal fat deposits.

Oral HCG Success: Down 70 Pounds in 5 Months!

Jennifer is a 42 year old woman who started the Dr. Simeons HCG Protocol in January 2009. She chose to use oral HCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin). During today’s follow up appointment she happily reported that as of two days ago she had lost 70 lbs. Her starting weight was 263 lbs and today she weighed 193 lbs. Her pants were a size 22. Now they are a size 14.

This has been a life changing experience for Jennifer. I also recommended that she start rhythmic estradiol replacement because the medical history suggested that there was an imbalance of estradiol and progesterone. She had a history of depression and had been prescribed Lexapro, a prescription antidepressant drug.

Since starting the HCG and hormone replacement therapy we have documented the following improvements:

  • No more fatigue.
  • Mood is great and the patient is no longer taking Lexapro.
  • No more PMS.

Jennifer has been very committed to sticking to the specific dietary protocol and she has been following up with me faithfully. 90% of the patients who are compliant with the protocol’s requirements and who let me know as soon as there is any concern experience similar results.

HCG Diet Success Story: 7 lbs. Lost in 1 Week

This patient, I will call her Sally, is a 48 year old woman who presented to my office this month for obesity treatment. Specifically, she was interested in the Dr. Simeons HCG Diet Protocol. Her height is 5′ 1″ and she weighed 168 lbs during the first appointment.

She has a history of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, and hypercholesterolemia. She is taking the following medications:

  • Janumet (sitagliptin 50 mg/metformin 500 mg) and glipizide 5 mg for diabetes
  • Diovan for hypertension
  • Lipitor for hypercholesterolemia.

When I saw her yesterday, after just one week of using intramuscular HCG injections she had lost 7 pounds. She felt better and her blood sugar levels had already dropped from an average of 125 mg/dL in the morning to 109 mg/dL, and from an average of 160 mg/dL in the evening to 125 mg/dL.

I expect that next week we will be able to reduce the dosage of at least one of her diabetes medications.

I have seen quick and significant changes in blood sugar levels in my patients who have obesity and diabetes mellitus when they use injectable or oral HCG for weight reduction.
