Earlier this year a woman in her early thirties presented to my office with a chief complaint of obesity. She had not been able to find anyone who was willing to take her complaint seriously and treat her with the safest and most effective obesity treatment in existence today: the Dr. Simeons HCG Diet Protocol.
After reading an HCG Diet success story on my website she knew that I was able and willing to help her.
Some people will find it hard to understand why a slender young woman who is 5 feet and 8.5 inches (1.74 meters) tall and about 130 lbs. (59 kg) would seek out obesity treatment. However, when you understand that obesity is a disorder which is characterized by an accumulation of abnormal fat deposits and that it is not defined by a simple ratio between height and weight such as the body mass index (BMI), then you will appreciate that treatment of obesity in individuals with a slender body build makes perfect sense.
In the words of Dr. A.T.W. Simeons in his book Pounds and Inches – A New Approach to Obesity (pages 29 and 30):
“Not by Weight aloneâ€¦
Weight alone is not a satisfactory criterion by which to judge whether a person is suffering from the disorder we call obesity or not. Every physician is familiar with the sylphlike lady who enters the consulting room and declares emphatically that she is getting horribly fat and wishes to reduce. Many an honest and sympathetic physician at once concludes that he is dealing with a â€œnut.â€ If he is busy he will give her short shrift, but if he has time he will weigh her and show her tables to prove that she is actually underweight.
I have never yet seen or heard of such a lady being convinced by either procedure. The reason is that in my experience the lady is nearly always right and the doctor wrong.
When such a patient is carefully examined one finds many signs of potential obesity, which is just about to become manifest as overweight. The patient distinctly feels that something is wrong with her, that a subtle change is taking place in her body, and this alarms her.
There are a number of signs and symptoms which are characteristic of obesity. In manifest obesity many and often all these signs and symptoms are present. In latent or just beginning cases some are always found, and it should be a rule that if two or more of the bodily signs are present, the case must be regarded as one that needs immediate help.”
The HCG Diet Protocol is the ideal treatment method for individuals who are struggling with obesity at any weight, including those whose body weight is considered normal by conventional BMI standards (BMI <25 is considered “normal” weight). As this patient explains, the HCG Diet Protocol is perfect for men and women who work as fashion or runway models. It is also recommended for actors and actresses, dancers, newscasters, and for anyone else whose livelihood depends on looking good in front of the camera or in public. Additionally, the HCG Diet Protocol is career-saving for athletes and for men and women who serve in the military and in other professions where they need to meet strict weight standards.
Here is the patient’s experience in her own words:
“Overall, I had great success with the protocol. I never once felt hungry which really surprised me. I used to eat a lot and all day long too. But there is just something special that the hcg does that makes it easy. Yes, it was difficult at times as I was pushing through some stubborn fat but getting past those hurdles was way worth it. I also had the extra benefit of detoxification. As the old fat cells were being flushed out, a lot of old toxins also got flushed away. Now I am thin but also much healthier. I can think better and I have a lot more energy.
I have been a life-long dieter and always concerned with my weight. I’ve never been naturally thin. So as soon as I hit puberty, I’ve had to work hard to stay slim. The only thing that sort of worked for me were diet pills and watching what I ate. But the minute I stopped watching what I ate, Iâ€™d easily gain again. I’ve had cellulite since I was a teenager that has never gone away and after my hcg protocol, I can happily say that it is ALL GONE! I still can’t believe it. Nothing ever worked before to get rid of it and I’ve tried it all.
Luckily even though I had to work HARD for it, I was accepted into the modeling and fashion world. I modeled internationally for magazines and the runway for 3 years. So, body image has always been important to me as well as health. In my opinion, too many models use unhealthy methods to stay thin. I know because I’ve witnessed it first-hand. I honestly think that any girl or guy that has aspirations to have a modeling career and has weight to lose or wants better muscle definition, this is by far, the most healthy way to go about it to get amazing results.
I’m now at 110 lbs, I’m 5 ft. 8 1/2 inches tall and I’m a size 2. I look and feel better now than I ever did even as a model. I’ve asked several people who know me well to guess my weight and every one guesses that I look to be about 120 lbs. I look normal and not starved because of the hcg. My face is not gaunt and my cheek bones don’t stick out either. That always worried me before. That if I got too thin, I would look anorexic, but I don’t. I am so overly thrilled with my results overall!! Thank you Dr. Bloem!”
Pictures 1, 2, and 3 (below) show the patient as she started the low-calorie phase of the HCG Diet Protocol (Phase 2). Pictures 4 and 5 show the patient after stopping the low-calorie phase of the HCG Diet Protocol and entering the next phase (Phase 3). Notable improvements include a significant reduction of abdominal fat with visible flattening of the stomach and slimming of her buttocks and thighs. Overall she lost an incredible 23.2 lbs. and 16 inches in 55 days!
When patients are following the HCG Diet Protocol under the supervision of an experienced physician and are monitored carefully, they will not only see a reduction in abnormal fat deposits, but they will often also experience an increased sense of well-being and an improvement of other complaints and health conditions such as hypertension, high cholesterol, diabetes, and joint aches.

He has studied with Dr. Daniel Belluscio from Argentina, a world renowned expert in this field. As a holistic physician he is able to help his patients lose weight safely and effectively and to treat a wide range of associated health conditions.
