DR. SIMEONS HCG DIET PROTOCOL
Dr. Simeons studies found that weight gain is not necessarily affected by quantities of food that one eats. There are many factors that affect weight gain, most of all is how well ones hypothalamus gland and diencephalon work. His lifelong studies came to show, not only can you lose fat in those hard to burn areas like your bellies, chins, love handles, thighs and arms but you can also change how your metabolism functions over time.
To change how your metabolism functions and to lose your stubborn abnormal fat, you need to follow a low calorie diet and use Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG). HCG is a hormone that is commonly found in your body. In fact, when you are young, it is present in every cell of your body. It also shows up in very large amounts in women when they become preganant. Doctors have used HCG for years in treatments including fertility and pregnancy test. It also has been clinically proven to work in weight loss when coupled with a low calorie diet.
When HCG is absorbed into your body, it causes your body to attack your stored fat. HCG triggers the body to break down fat cells and put it into your blood stream to be burned off as energy. This process puts anywhere from 1500 to 4000 calories in your system per day. This allows us to utilize a low calorie diet while still maintaining our strength and energy levels. If you use HCG with a normal diet, you will gain weight.
When a person that is overweight tries to lose by implementing a very low calorie diet without HCG, the dieter will first lose normal fat reserves followed by the burning of structural fat. Both of these two tyupes of fat are essential in our bodies. Lastly, the body finally starts to burn abnormal fat (bad fat). Once this happens, the dieter will begin to feel weak and hungry until the dieter gives up. If there are signs of weight loss, it is usually not in the desired areas. (Hips, bellies, chin, arms, thighs). The good fat is diminished and the bad fat stays. Frustrating!
With the use of HCG and following the specific diet protocol, dieters can start burning abnormal fat immediately while leaving the structural fat and fat reserves in place to keep the body healthy. Reports show an average loss of .5 to 2 pounds per day. Along with the decrease in pounds, you will see inches melt away and those abnormal fat deposits will begin to disappear. Clients have had an improvement in complexion, a drop in high blood pressure and a reduction in wrinkles. HCG can be used by men and women with no reported unsafe side effects.
This protocol has been studied in depth since the 1950's and has cured thousands. This is the most effective way to lose weight and keep it off. Three weeks after completing the protocol your metabolism is reset and the body can function properly. This has been so successful that few changes have been made to the original protocol over the last 50 years.

DIET PLAN DETAILS
Take 10 drops (1/8 Teaspoon) 3 times per day for 20 days. The first two days are "load" days where you need to eat to capacity. This is important to sustain energy to your body. Days 3-20 continue to take the drops while you maintain your 500 calories per day. Days 21-23 maintain your 500 calorie diet with no TrimHCG. It is important to take the drops 30 minutes before or after you consume any food or beverage. (This includes brushing your teeth). Hold drops under your tongue for 2 minutes.
Days 1 & 2
-Take drops and eat to capacity. Include foods high in fats such as avocado, tuna and salmon. This is important to load up on energy stores to give your body enough energy until the TrimHCG can absorb and start burning fat storage. Drink plenty of water!! At least 2 liters per day!
Days 3 - 20
-Continue taking 10 HCG drops 3 times per day while you consume your alloted 500 calories. You can make 500 calories go a long way. Make sure to limit your protein to 3.5 oz or 100 grams and fill the rest of the calories with vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Drink minimum of 1/2 your body weight in oz per day.
Days 21 - 23
-Discontinue use of the drops while maintaining the 500 calorie diet. This is very important to get the HCG out of your body before you increase your caloric consumption.
21 - Day Maintenance Fallowing the Diet Plan
-Slowly bring back foods into your daily diet but still completely refrain from any Starches or Sugars. During this phase you can eat until full as long as you make sure that you stay within 2 pounds of your bottom weight. If you go above 2 pounds by just one ounce, then you need to have a steak day or mini steak day.
Steak Day - Drink as much fluid as possible throughout the day including water, coffee an tea while eating no food until dinner. At dinnertime have a big juicy Steak (season as you like with approved seasonings) and follow it with an apple or raw tomato.
Mini Steak Day - Drink as many fluids as possible and for lunch have 2 hard-boiled eggs with an apple. For dinner you may have a large steak 9season as you like) followed by an apple or raw tomato.
