How does hCG work for weight loss?
To understand the answer to that question, you first need to understand What is hCG?
In Dr Simeons’ founding research and subsequent manuscript, he goes further and explains the Three Kinds of Fat – and the function and reason for each:
“In the human body we can distinguish three kinds of fat.
- The first is the structural fat which fills the gaps between various organs, a sort of packing material. Structural fat also performs such important functions as bedding the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, protecting the coronary arteries and keeping the skin smooth and taut, it also provides the springy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet, without which we would be unable to walk.
- The second type of fat is a normal reserve of fuel upon which the body can freely draw when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insufficient to meet the demand. Such normal reserves are localized all over the body. Fat is a substance which packs the highest caloric value into the smallest space so that normal reserves of fuel for muscular activity and the maintenance of body temperature can be most economically stored in this form. Both these types of fat, structural and reserve, are normal, and even if the body stocks them to capacity this can never be called obesity.
- But there is a third type of fat which is entirely abnormal. It is the accumulation of such fat, and of such fat only, from which the overweight patient suffers. This abnormal fat is also a potential reserve of fuel, but unlike the normal reserves it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. It is, so to speak, locked away in a fixed deposit and is not kept in a current account, as are the normal reserves.
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 week 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 and their face becomes drawn and haggard, but their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest stays on that the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. And this is one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences a human being can have”.
The seemingly miraculous action of hCG is that it allows you to finally have a way to access these abnormal fat stores.
But let’s be very clear on this next point: hCG alone will not result in weight loss.
Because of its very specific actions within the body, hCG must be combined with a very low calorie diet (VLCD). As the name suggests, this involves intake of small servings of food that contain a low overall number of daily calories. Under normal circumstances this would not be sufficient to sustain normal brain and body functions at optimal levels; however when hCG is circulating in the system the VLCD allows your body to access your fat stores to gain all of the nourishment it requires. Due to this action, the same calorie restriction applies to both males and females, without experiencing any additional hardship.
By accessing your abnormal fat stores, weight is able to be lost from areas where many of us find frustratingly hard to shift – areas such as the stomach or buttocks, thighs and upper arms, etc. which can mean no more worrying about exercising those abs or thighs like crazy, in hope of some miracle spot reduction. hCG looks after this for you, resulting in more even fat distribution and more desirable overall body contour.
What is more, hCG combined with the specific diet protocol, not only removes abnormal problem fat deposits, but actually works to replace important structural fat in needed areas, which can work to prevent the haggard or toneless/saggy skin and sunken face that can result from other weight loss programs.
