The book Pounds and Inches, a New Approach to Obesity by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons changed my life. It was all there in this miracle manuscript; the life changing information to help me reset my metabolism and lose nearly 60 pounds. It still amazes me to this day that this British endocrinologist stumbled upon the weight loss solution for so many people who are overweight and struggling with obesity.
The history of the HCG Diet begins in the 1950‘s with Dr. A.T.W. Simeons making a correlation between weight loss and obesity and a hormonal imbalance in young boys. The imbalance was corrected by a naturally derived medication called HCG or Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin. He studied the way the HCG worked and theorized that the HCG works to release abnormal fat stores from the body while resetting the hypothalamus gland which regulates metabolism and other endocrine functions. The Pounds and Inches literally melt away.
In 1954, he wrote his book Pounds and Inches, a New Approach to Obesity and detailed his findings. By eating a very low calorie diet (VLCD) of very specific foods while taking a daily dose of HCG, an overweight individual could lose up to a pound a day with little to no side effects. He treated hundreds of individuals with the HCG Diet at his clinic in Italy with great success.
Since the time Pounds and Inches was written, the HCG Diet has taken off in a big way across the country. HCG injections and sublingual drops are now available from 1000‘s of clinics across the country who offer the HCG Diet Protocol. Not only has the book Pounds and Inches and the HCG Diet changed my life, but the lives of countless individuals who have tried every diet and weight loss method known to man and finally found one that works for them.
