proven weight loss with HCG


Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, or HCG for short is a hormone found in both men and women, with higher quantities produced while women are pregnant. HCG consists of 244 amino acids, and was first connected with weight loss by Dr. ATW Simeons, a British endocrinologist, when he found that it played a role in controlling women’s metabolism.

The hormone is created in large amounts in a pregnant woman’s placenta, extracted from her urine and was often used to treat infertility. While Simeons was researching boys with low testosterone levels, he began giving them HCG and discovered that they began to lose abnormal belly fat and were slimming down. From this observation, Dr. Simeons researched and experimented with various amounts of HCG and its relation to metabolism and weight loss.

Through this research over 10 years, he eventually discovered that both males and females could lose large amounts of abnormal fat with a combination of strict dieting, exercise and the HCG hormone. The word soon got out about a new use for HCG and soon, doctors and healthcare professionals around the world were coming to Rome to learn more about his experiments. Because of the growing popularity of his work, in 1967, Simeons published Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity, which would help summarize and deliver his weight loss findings to the world.

The hormone within the HCG drops allows the body to burn up excess abnormal fat stores in the body and has been shown to help reduce fat cells. With Dr. Simeons protocol, the abnormal fat is the main target during exercise and the core philosophy behind the HCG diet. Other diets can often target the wrong types of fat in the body, leaving dieters confused on why they aren’t seeing results.

Through the HCG diet drops, the hormone also works on the hypothalamus, a part of your brain that fulfills various roles including controlling your appetite. While following Simeons protocol, research shows that the hormone can help curb and even eliminate your cravings for starch and sugar, the leading causes of abnormal fat creation and buildup.

Dr. Simeon’s Pounds and Inches Away establishes very quickly that “obesity in all its many forms is due to an abnormal functioning of some part of the body.” He believed that it was a disorder that caused you to accumulate fat, and not simply whether you ate more than normal. In his opening pages, Simeons tackled the issue of obesity with his theory on the accumulating fat disorder, and the ways in which it could be corrected through his three phase diet.

Through his experiments and studies, he aimed at creating a sustainable system of weight loss, where his users could eat as they please, without immediately gaining back the abnormal fat they lost while on the diet.
