Dr. Simeons is a physician who developed the HCG diet plan back in the 1950’s. In his manuscript, Dr. Simeons says the following general information about how the HCG diet works:
“When an obese patient tries to reduce by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves, though by that time the patient usually feels so weak and hungry that the diet is abandoned. It is just for this reason that obese patients complain that when they diet they lose the wrong fat. They feel famished and tired… The fat they have come to detest stays on.” (Excerpt from Dr. Simeons’ Manuscript)
To rephrase Dr. Simeons in simpler words: The HCG diet plan allows your body to tap into your body’s abnormal fat deposits (shoulders, upper arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks).
In obese HCG diet clients, these deposits are not usually accessible to the body until the person has gone through both his normal fat (your energy in/energy out reserve) and structural fat (fat between your organs, in your face, etc.) as described above. This is the reason why no matter how much some people exercise and starve themselves; they still have, for example, a “big gut and big butt”.
The HCG diet drops or HCG Injections coupled with the HCG very low calorie diet allows abnormal fat deposits to be tapped into, released into the blood stream and used by the body.
Some scientific reasoning about why HCG is the key to fast weight loss. When a woman is pregnant her body is producing large amount of HCG. The HCG is a pregnancy hormone as a ‘fail-safe’ if the pregnant woman cannot nourish herself. For instance, some pregnant women are nauseous for weeks at a time and not getting much nutrition or calories from food. But, the HCG hormone allowed her abnormal fat store to be broken up and used as food, therefore the pregnancy typically remains relatively healthy and the woman additionally able to give birth to a healthy baby. This release of fat/calories into the blood stream is also why clients taking the HCG diet drops or HCG Injections are generally not hungry and generally have plenty of energy during our HCG 800 calorie diet phase of the HCG protocol.
According to Dr. Simeons, the HCG drops and HCG Injections actually release 1500-4000 calories per day into the bloodstream. This is the ONLY reason it is okay to safely limit yourself to a 800 calorie diet while on phase 2 of HCG.
Without the effect of the HCG diet drops or HCG Injections, Dr. Simeons and the rest of the world agree that a typical very low calorie diet (VLCD) leave the dieter looking haggard with a skeleton-like face, starving, and facing excessive nutritional deficiency. Most diets begin weight loss by depleting your structural fat (that fat which cushions your organs and gives your face a soft, non-skeletal look) and your normal fat reserves.
However, MOST diets are slow to affect the abnormal fat which is stored in your abnormal fat deposits (shoulders, upper arms, hips, thighs, and buttocks), which is the fat that most of us want gone, BUT it seems that there is only one efficient key to unlock those areas of fat: The HCG diet drops and HCG Injections.
