Weight Loss Resistance
Dr. Simeons’ Program
HCG enables people to lose up to a pound a day. Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, a specialist on obesity and weight regulation, introduced a program that has helped many people overcome weight loss resistance. The program utilizes a natural hormone that is produced during pregnancy called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). Dr. Simeons’ theory is that HCG acts on the hypothalamus to trigger a release of abnormal fat stores. When administered in small amounts and coupled with a restricted calorie diet, HCG enables people to lose up to a pound a day.
We all have a small gland deep within our brain called the hypothalamus. This is the vital part of the body which controls all of the automatic functions of the body, including breathing, heart beat, digestion, sleep and the complicated functions of the endocrine (hormone) system. Included in these endocrine functions is the regulation and control of metabolism and weight.
Abnormal Fat Stores
Dr. Simeons identified three separate fat stores, Structural, Normal, and Abnormal. Structural fat pads the various organs, protects the arteries and cushions the bony prominences. Normal fat is a bank from which the body can easily draw energy. Abnormal fat is a bank much like a savings account where fat is stored and basically locked away. This fat is very difficult to lose via exercise and calorie restriction. HCG mobilizes and eliminates these fat stores.
