The Dr. Simeons HCG diet is the original HCG diet and was first developed in the 1950s by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. Since then, it has been changed by some HCG diet providers, but the majority of the main diet companies still use the original protocol with possible slight variations. The original protocol has proven to be the most effective version of the diet because it has been tested more than any other version. Most of the licensed diet providers use this version of the diet, but there are a few that have decided to not use it and come up with their own protocols. This is useful in some cases when there are special medical circumstances, but most people benefit from using the original version of the diet.
The Dr. Simeons HCG diet was developed after clinical trials
During the 1950s, Dr. A.T.W. Simeons developed the HCG diet after extensive clinical trials, and he used the data that he obtained from his clinical trials to help him develop the protocol and refine it. The current HCG diet has been refined and tested, and it is based on solid scientific evidence. The original protocol created by Dr. Simeons advises a 500kcal per day diet with strict food requirements. The diet lasts for three or six weeks, and it is designed for weight loss of up to one pound per day. Most people lose several pounds while on the diet safely, however the diet should always be administered by a medical professional.
Dr. Simeons studied the HCG hormone extensively
Dr. Simeons studied human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG) and understood the effects of the hormone better than anyone else. He published his finding in the manuscript “Pounds and Inches” which has been used as the basis for the modern HCG diet for several years. With his experience and understanding of how the hormone works, he developed a diet based around the biochemistry of HCG. The food choices are carefully selected so that they do not cause any issues with the weight loss capability of the HCG hormone. Since the diet was created there have been a few variations developed by other medical providers, but the original diet has been used the most widely and has shown to provide the quickest results.
The protocol has several different requirements
The hormone diet protocol that Dr. Simeons developed has a number of different requirements. Those who are on the diet must avoid cosmetics with oil in them for instance. Any cosmetics with oil or oil containing products can potentially cause problems with the hormone. Also, most foods with fat are avoided, and the protein choices that are allowed by the protocol are all low in fat. Dietary fat in every form is thought to slow down and cause problems with the effectiveness of the hormone, so it is almost completely eliminated from the diet. The daily 500 calorie limit is also set in place because this limit is known to work the best with the hormone, allowing for the fastest amount of weight loss while offering enough basic nutrition to get through the VLCD phase of the diet.
The diet should never be administered without medical supervision
Although the Simeons diet is based on solid medical research and has been refined over several decades, the diet should never be attempted without medical supervision. There are just a few online diet providers that offer a real medical consultation. There are several companies that offer the diet without offering any sort of medical review or consultation prior to starting a patient on the diet. This can be extremely dangerous because a VLCD is not safe for every person, even though the majority of people can safely try the diet. There may be some people with higher nutritional requirements or other medical needs, and these people may be advised to try an alternative to the Dr. Simeons HCG diet.
