The hCG protocol, created by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons back in the 50’s and 60’s, is a multi-stage program designed to melt the abnormal fat from your body, reset your hypothalumus to keep you at a ‘normal’ weight, and help you learn to eat correctly to maintain that weight FOR LIFE, so that you’ll never have to diet again. Followed correctly, it will cure you of the disease of obesity.
It is important to understand that this is NOT A DIET. It is a scientifically designed protocol that utilizes a combination of very specific foods at 500 calories per day and the use of hCG (either injected, taken sublingually or via homeopathic application) to CHANGE THE WAY YOUR BODY PROCESSES FOOD. Because of this, you should not look for food substitutions, nor look for ways to add ‘calorie free’ foods, as you might upset the nutritional balance that is designed in the protocol. Doing so may impair your weight loss, and/or possibly keep you from resetting. If followed, this protocol WORKS.
This is a very precise process, so cheating can not only affect your weight loss, but your ability to stabilize later, and you won’t know until you get there if you messed up your stabilization when you cheat.
Here is the basic process:
Loading (or the Gorge) – While taking your .125 dose of hCG (or 125iu 2x per day if sublingual or 6 drops 3x per day if homeopathic), you eat as high fat as possible, gorging to the point of nausea, for 2-3 days (3-4 days if you are coming off a diet process such as Weight Watchers/Atkins/etc.). This will be hard. You *MUST* eat to capacity. This will stock up your fat cells, and both help you lose, and help to stave off hunger while on the VLCD (very low calorie diet) portion of the protocol. Dr. Simeons says: “Patients in a satisfactory general condition and those who have not just previously restricted their diet start forced feeding on the day of the first injection. Some patents say that they can no longer overeat because their stomach has shrunk after years of restrictions. While we know that no stomach ever shrinks, we compromise by insisting that they eat frequently of highly concentrated foods such as
- milk chocolate,
- pastries with whipped cream sugar,
- fried meats (particularly pork),
- eggs and bacon,
- bread with thick butter and jam, etc.
The time and trouble spent on pressing this point upon incredulous or reluctant patients is always amply rewarded afterwards by the complete absence of those difficulties which patients who have disregarded these instructions are liable to experience.”
