There is a lot of HCG diet info that you have access to on the internet. So what more can you learn here? I guess the real thing that sets this web site apart from others is that I have been there and done it. I know what it takes and understand what works and what doesn't.
Yes, the HCG weight loss program actually does work. It did for me and it can for you. However, you HAVE to follow it as outlined or you will not get the results you desire.
There is also some question of its safety. It has been studied and appears to be relatively safe. however there are no long term studies on it.
The best way I can address the "safety issue" is how I addressed it with my sister-in-law before she started the program. Have you ever asked if aspartame, a known neuro-toxin is safe, or if tylenol, which is harmful to the liver, is safe. Or what about the prescription medicine you take where the list of side effects are huge.
I know that there are many food additives and chemicals most of us eat on a daily basis that are much worse for us than the possible harm of HCG. Again there is no proof that is it harmful.
You have to decide for yourself if you are willing to take a chance. A fairly safe chance to change your life and your weight.
It all started in the 1950's with Dr A.T.W. Simeons. He specialized in weight control and regulation as well as obesity. He wanted to help people overcome their weight issues and any resistance their body might have to resisting weight loss.
He discovered that a woman's body produces a natural hormone when she is pregnant. A hormone called Human Chorionic Gonadotropin - HCG - is beneficial in the treatment and potential cure for obesity. It tells the brain to let go of the abnormal fat stores in the body.
When a small does of the hormone is used along with a very low-calorie diet, a person like you or I who are not pregnant can lose one to two pounds of fat per day. Thank you Dr Simeon!
In addition, due to the fat reduction, not only is the problem of obesity disappeared but the other health issues the being overweight creates when it comes to blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.
Along comes Kevin Trudeau, rebellious journalist, that has been imprisoned due to his promotion of natural cures. He tell it like it is and the pharmaceutical companies don't like it.
He steps out on a limb and writes a book about a natural cure for weight loss with information on Simeon's work.
While the HCG weight loss program can be successful for you. There is still a lot of controversy. Even Dr. Oz, made famous by the Oprah Show, has wavered back and forth on it.
The ultimate decision lies with you. All I can say is that I did it and it worked for me. And if it worked for me, it can work for you!
