hCG Diet, Cure for Obesity or Fad Diet?
The Pregnancy Hormone + VLCD Equal the hCG Diet Sliming & Triming Thousands Every Day
What is hCG? If you have ever wondered what the actual molecule looked like that's it on the left.
Human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone produced only during pregnancy by the embryo via the placenta once the embryo is implanted, typically in the uterus. The purpose of the hormone is to release the fat stores by the mother to feed and nourish the embryo during the early stages of growth and development. As the embryo grows inside the mother's uterus and the various stages of development occur, the levels of the hormone rise exponentially.
The hormone has two jobs during pregnancy, to releases the fat from the mother for nourishment to the developing baby and protect the mother's muscle from being wasted while the fetus grows and develops during pregnancy.
In short human chorionic gonadotropin is a fat releasing muscle sparing hormone produced naturally in high levels only during the time of pregnancy in females.
How Is Human Chorionic Gonadotropin For Weight Loss Used?
When you combine it with a very specific low to no fat, low carb, high protein, very low calorie eating plan the same muscle sparing, fat letting effect happens to the dieter. Your body releases your fat from your body while protecting your muscle.
The hormone allows your body to release your abnormal and excessive fat stores from your body. The circulating fat in turn acts as a natural appetite suppressant allowing the dieter to not feel hungry while on the accompanying very restrictive low calorie diet.
Who Linked the Hormone and Weight Loss Together?
A British endocrinologist, Dr. Simeons, made a very important observation while practicing medicine in India. One of the medical medical treatments for undescended testis was injecting these 'fat boys' with low dosages of the hormone, they leaned out, losing fat while their muscle mass remained intact.
He made the same observation in poor pregnant women who, due to economic circumstances, ate a very restrictive low calorie diet, they too did not lose muscle mass while still giving birth to generally healthy thriving babies.
Pounds & Inches: A New Approach To Obesity
The book was published in 1950 by Dr. A.T.W. Simeon's as the cure to obesity. Based on his finding while in India he developed a diet to accompany the injections and specific protocols to follow for success. Dr. Simeon's successfully treated many people at his practice in Rome for years using a low dosage, 125 iu of human chorionic gonadotropin, coupled with his carefully crafted VLCD plan and protocols. Many men and women both leaned out, lost their abnormal excess body fat and regained health.
What is the Controversy Surrounding the Diet?
In the late 70's Dr. Simeons findings could not be reproduced and the FDA made those who were using the protocol to have the following disclaimer.
These weight reduction treatments include the injection of HCG, a drug which has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that HCG increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets.
But that did not stop some clinics whose anecdotal evidence disproved what the FDA and other researches stated about using human chorionic gonadotropin hormone for weight loss.
Then in April 2007 Kevin Trudeau released his book, The Weight Loss Cure “They” Don’t Want You to Know About, which reignited the diet craze in the US and abroad.
Seen as a fad diet by the establishment while at the same time a godsend by those struggling to lose weight and fat, the diet protocol Dr. Simeons used successfully for years was once again became popular with the public.
What About the Homeopathic (HHCG) Controversy, What Is the Truth?
With the resurgence of popularity the supplement industry and marketers wanted to cash in on the new dieting craze, however there were only two ways in the United States to obtain human chorionic gonadotropin. From your doctor or medical weight loss clinic specializing in using the hormone for weight loss or importing the hormone from overseas.
Many doctors were and still are reluctant to prescribe the hormone for weight loss as it isn't recognized for weight loss by the FDA. And ordering from overseas was something new for a lot of people wanting to follow the protocol as per Dr. Simeons method of injection.
Thus some marketers took advantage of the homeopathic industry and flat out LIED about their products containing the hormone.
The guiding principles and tenets of homeopathic medicine alone are enough to disprove homeopathic HHCG.
- Homeopathy seeks to repel the imbalance from the body and allow the body to heal and rebalance.
- Homeopathy stimulates the body's natural curative powers.
- Homeopaths therefore choose a remedy based on Provings and the Homeopathic Law of Similars (and not a chemical or suppressive action)
Law of Similars - Provings
Law of the Minimum Dose & Potentization
Law of Individualization - Holistic Healing
To summarize the principles of homeopathic medicine, a homeopathic doctor or naturopath believes the cure must come from the disease. Pregnancy hormone is only produced by women when pregnant thus it is not a cause of obesity or being overweight thus it cannot be a cure for being overweight or obesity.
Another issue with HHCG is how it is made and the delicate molecule hCG hormone itself. An overwhelming number of homeopathic hCG drops were made with alcohol. Alcohol kills the hormone on contact and would render any amount of the hormone neutral and ineffective let alone the 'trace' amounts the marketers wanted people to believe was just as powerful as a full minimum dosage of 125 iu had.
The FDA stepped in along with the FTC and ended the HHCG claims. The few that survived the massive purging of hCG drop makers no longer state they have hCG in the product. Stating so is now illegal and would open them up to fines by the FDA.
Are ALL hCG Drops Fraudulent?
Fortunately, NO. Real hCG drops and real hCG pills are made from reputable labs right here in the USA and are as effective for weight loss as the original injection method.
How Can I Buy Real hCG Drops?
There are two ways.
- Obtain a prescription from your doctor and buy a drops kit to make it yourself. When you sign up for our hCG Diet Success Bundle you get full mixing instructions in our private area.
- Some medical weight loss doctors who use hCG in their practice have the diet drops. But a large portion of diet doctors believe the injection method is far superior to drops or pellets for following the protocol.
hCG Diet The Methods You Can Take
Does the Diet Affect Your Gallbladder?
There isn't any known indication or link between hCG and gallbladder issues. The hCG diet is a high protein, low carb, low to no fat diet. Any LOW to NO fat diets may cause some people to experience gallstones.
The hormone is a fertility treatment given to women to stimulate ovulation and has been used in as a fertility treatment for over 20 years without any reports of gallbladder or gallstone attacks. Thus it's not the hormone itself, but the deduction of fat and the function of your gallstone.
Is hCG for Dieting Dangerous?
No the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone itself is not dangerous. It is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the body in low doses in both men and women. Women produce very high numbers of during pregnancy.
The diet is a very low calorie diet and you should seek medical advice before starting the weight loss protocol to assess your health and make sure a very restrictive diet such as outlined here, is not going to be adverse to your health and well-being.
However, in general certain people should not undertake using the hormone for dieting. There are medical indications and precautions that would prevent a person from using proceeding with the diet.
IF you have had or have cancer, tumors or are prone to uterine fibroids it would not be a good idea to pursue using gonadotropin as it would not be advisable as it will stimulate the growth of these cells.
People with known heart issues may experience heart issues like arrhythmias or palpitations.
Remember that the original protocol was started by a doctor and his patients were under medical supervision. Medical supervision may be needed even in if you are healthy when going on the hCG diet protocol because the original plan called for 500 calories a day. The new protocol designed by some doctors will customize the calories to suite the patient and go as high as 800-1,200 calories a day.
It is important to note that many issues that arise are not from the hormone but generally related to the 500 calorie intake and very low fat on the diet which is considered by most to be on the low side.
