A Closer look at HCG
The use of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadtropin) in the treatment of weight-control was first popularized by the late British endocrinologist and physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons. Dr. Simeons first documented his research and experimentation on the topic in 1954, while practicing at the Salvator Mutidi International Hospital in Rome, Italy.
Prior to this point in his medical career, he had spent years researching various theories of weight-control / loss. During this extended period of research, Dr. Simeons cataloged several significant aspects of metabolic weight-control and gain including much original research on the hypothalamus, endocrine system and metabolic-burn rate.
When experimenting with aspects of the endocrine system and weight-loss / gain, he found that patients testing HCG and a VLCD (very-low-calorie diet) did not develop the customary headaches, hunger pains, weakness, irritability and emotional instability as customary with conventional diets.
This was due he determined, because the body was not experiencing any real loss in calories -- but was being fully supplied with fat (as much as the body demanded) as the primary calorie source.
Dr. Simeons was among the earliest medical researchers to support the theory of 3 types of adipose tissue, a cause which -- he championed most of his career.
* The first type of "fat" or adipose tissue he referred to as "structural' fat. This includes intra-muscular pad; heel pad and organ buffer tissue. An essential form of fat for the body.
* The second type of fat is generally recognized as the 'normal, transitional storage fat' that is readily accessible to the body in time of need. The body creates and then burns this fat on an on-going basis.
* The third type, also a storage fat -- he labeled "immobile storage fat" due to it's ability to remain untouched and unconsumed by the body even while under biological demand. His research confirmed that this 'locked-up fat' did not respond to normal pathological call / demand parameters of the body -- but was only consumable by the body under select biological circumstances.
HCG was one of a very select group of catalysts that could induce the body to consume this immobile fat. Later research confirmed that the HCG was stimulating the hypothalamus and parts of the endocrine system from a low-activity, low- volatility state to a condition of higher mobilization and output.
During his research Dr. Simeons also noted a unsuspected, but pleasant effect of the bodies fat consuming process.
Slimming Bodies Re-shape Without Exercise!
That even while losing significant volume and mass, his patients bodies did not become mis-shapen, or hypo-caloric appearing at points, -- but re-shaped naturally without exercise, or additional physical effort.
Breakfast – Drink only coffee, tea, or artificially sweetened, 'zero-calorie' type drinks. No carbonated beverages. Consume all you care to. No milk, even if it fits in your calorie count. Stevia, or Splenda sweeteners may be used
Lunch – 3 Ounces or 100 Grams of lean meat which may consist of one of the following: Veal, lamb, lean beef, chicken breast, fresh white fish, lobster, crab, or shrimp. Salmon, eel, tuna, herring, dried or pickled fish are not allowed. We highly suggest that any of the portions -- meat, or vegetable be thoroughly spiced to taste enhance the flavor and 'stretch' the foods impact on the palate.
3 Ounces or 100 Grams of select vegetables which may consist of one of the following: Spinach, chard, chicory, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, celery, onions, red radishes, cucumbers, asparagus, or cabbage.
1 selection of fruit with choices of: an apple, a handful of strawberries, half a grapefruit or an small- medium sized orange.
1 bread stick (low-fat) or one Melba Toast.
Dinner – Basically a modestly high-protein meal like lunch.
* In many countries specially prepared unsweetened and low calorie foods are freely available, and some of these can be tentatively used... the total daily intake must not exceed 500 calories if the best possible results are to be obtained.
If you haven't figured out the BIG PICTURE on how this dieting process really works (or fails) I'll spell out in straight-forward words.
HCG REALLY, REALLY WORKS and WORKS WELL! The HCG is going to turn your body into a voracious, fat eating machine Period.
However, the effectiveness of the diet is 95 percent in the Dieter's hands. Losses of up to 3 Pounds per day have been documented -- and that is no B.S. But that kind of loss is not the norm. And of course the results can go all the way down to ZERO ounces lost on the other end of the spectrum. And that is not the norm either.
The results really are under the control of the Dieter.
Under the effects of HCG your body will scavenge fat from your frame like crazy. Like that ol' Tasmanian Wolf in the Bugs Bunny cartoons. He ate everything! HCG is gonna suck-down fats and oil off of you like all-out-war.
So avoid all oils (fat) incorporated into food or used ON your person during the diet. On my person?
I'm talking about tanning oils; oil based face creams; make-up and make-up removers that have oil in them, even facials (Oil of Olay)if they are in an oil base.
Some hair-styles still use oils to dress-up the effect -- so avoid those too. Use a gel instead. Anything that is oily on or in your body will be used as 'fuel' instead of your body fat adn will negate the HCG's effect!
The use of HCG is a very pleasant experience for the great majority of users. You'll very likely join that large block of well satisfied users.
Whether taking HCG orally, by injection or as a homeopathic formula -- HCG should show immediate positive results in the loss of ounces, pounds and inches from day 3 -- the day that you really go on the calorie diet and are taking the HCG.
Even with all its overwhelmingly positive aspects, all bio-active, bio-stimulating materials have the capability of undesirable effects.
Put you forefingers and thumbs together. Now, sit cross-legged on the floor, 'lotus style'. Get a really enlightened look on your face and repeat after me: 'Cut the faaaaaaaaaat' OOOOH-UMMMMMMM. 'Cut the faaaaaaaaaat'
While most dieters ease through HCG use with no complications or adverse effects whatsoever, using either the injectable, oral or homeopathic material to its term of 23 days -- a small percentage of individuals will 'temporarily' stop responding to the material after a period of time.
This is often termed 'plateauing or stalling out' -- and implies just as the flight term suggests -- that no further forward movement is being made. The majority of authorities offer this course of action if 'stalling out' occurs.
Stop taking your HCG. Carefully store the remainder of the 23 or 40 day series in a cool place (wine cooler, or refrigerator is suggested) -- and wait for 14 days.
At the end of this period of time -- the previous doses of HCG will have cleared your system and you can simply restart the process -- with positive results once again. Don'ts
Don't eat anything or apply anything to your body that has oil in it. Remember -- your hypothalamus has targeted oil (fat) -- any oil on or in the body for consumption.
If you choose to maintain the use of oil based make-up and lipstick, eyeshadow, cream rinses, Oil of Olay baths, etc. -- you will dramatically slow (if not halt) the loss of pounds and inches.
