Dr. Simeons HCG Diet
MY WEIGHT LOSS STORY
How the Dr. Simeons HCG Protocol has helped me and my patients lose large amounts of abnormal fat.
My quest to help my patients lose weight dates back to 2001. Although I knew that there was a clear association between obesity and the many chronic illnesses that family physicians see in their practices, I did not know how to address the underlying causes. I had come to recognize that eating less and exercising more was not the complete solution to the problem of obesity. Finding the answers was not easy. It has been a long road with many disappointments, but in 2007 I was fortunate to discover a time-tested, safe, and effective protocol which had been developed by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a British physician who practiced in Rome, Italy, from the 1950s through the early 1970s.
Dr. Simeons detailed his protocol, which combines the use of human chorionic gonadotrophin (HCG) and a specific low-calorie diet in his book entitled “Pounds and Inches”. Dr. Simeons found that HCG maximizes the functional capacity of all the centers in the hypothalamus, including what he termed the fat center, making it possible for fat to be released from abnormal fat deposits and to become available as a source of fuel to the body.
This is the first time in my career that I have seen large numbers of patients succeed in losing significant amounts of abnormal fat quickly without hunger and without adverse side effects.
I was so impressed and intrigued with my patients’ results and the safety of this protocol that I decided to start it too. Although I have never been grossly obese, I knew that I had excessive amounts of abnormal fat. In addition, I wanted to know for myself that this protocol was practical, safe, and effective. Finally, I recognized that the best way to learn and teach this protocol is for a physician to have a personal experience.
I started in April 2008 weighing 163 lbs and was impressed that I was able to drastically reduce my caloric intake without any hunger and without any side effects. I noticed that I quickly lost any desire and cravings for junk food such as potato chips. I experienced rapid weight loss manifesting as a significant reduction in the measurements of my waist and thighs. Within 2 months, by the end of May 2008, I had lost almost 20 lbs of abnormal fat. I was able to lose all this weight without engaging in any strenuous exercise activities.
As of the time of this writing, late July 2008, I am in the long-term maintenance phase of this protocol. I weigh 143 lbs and have been able to maintain my weight without any hardship and without restricting the amounts of food that I eat.
I invite you to learn more about the HCG Protocol by reading Pounds and Inches first. You can download it by clicking here. After reading this book you will be able to appreciate and understand the significance and importance of Dr. Simeons’s groundbreaking research that went into developing this highly effective protocol.
I offer to my patients both oral HCG and injectable HCG protocols as well as HCG Cream and Nasal HCG. Physicians around the world have successfully treated both men and women as young as 8 to 12 years of age.

What is Bariatric Medicine?
You may have heard of the term bariatric medicine. Baros is the Greek word for burden or heavy. Thus the term bariatric medicine has come to refer to the medical specialty for the treatment of obesity or overweight. Likewise, the term bariatric surgery refers to the surgical treatment of the same health problem.
Unfortunately, these terms are somewhat misleading because they don’t accurately describe the root of the problem, which is abnormal fat. Ultimately, the elimination of abnormal fat results in weight loss. However, not all weight loss is due to the elimination of abnormal fat. Most often, people lose weight due to loss of normal, structural fat, muscle mass, or body fluids.
Dr. Simeons recognized that everybody, regardless of body weight, has normal fat, which consists of structural fat and normal fat reserves. Even if this normal fat is stocked to capacity this can never be called obesity. Dr. Simeons was way ahead of his time by recognizing that the problem in people who are overweight or obese is that they have abnormal fat deposits which do not respond to dietary restriction and exercise alone.
Prior to learning about Dr. Simeons’s HCG Protocol I studied the treatment protocols of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians and SHAPEDOWN®, a child and adolescent weight management program that was developed at the University of California, San Francisco.
Although the use of appetite suppressant and other bariatric medications which are commonly prescribed by bariatric physicians may be helpful for some, I have found that in my practice my patients do very well without them.
I have found that NeuroModulation Technique (NMT) may be a useful adjunct. Dr. Mikell Adams, a chiropractor and NMT practitioner from Lawrence, Kansas, performed a series of NMT treatments for me starting in October 2007 when I weighed 174 lbs. Over the course of several months I lost about 10 lbs with modest dietary changes and a moderate increase in exercise activity.
In addition, my experience as a certified raw and living food teacher has helped incorporate my knowledge about wholesome nutrition into my patients’ treatment regimens.
