About The HCG Diet
Dr Simeons and The HCG Diet
hCG is the abbreviation for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which is 244 amino acids produced in the placenta during pregnancy and found in the the urine of a pregnant female.
hCG was discovered in 1929 and has commonly been used over the years in females to treat infertility. hCG is extracted from a pregnant woman’s urine and then administered via injections to females in increments of 10,000 unit doses, along with other fertility hormones. hCG positively affects the hypothalamus and it is interesting to note that male body builders and professional athletes who use steroids and deplete their natural testosterone levels have used hCG injections for years at about 500 units 3 times a week as a pre-cursor to increase testosterone levels.
The HCG Diet dates back to the 1950s when a British endocrinologist, Dr. ATW Simeons, pioneered the theory of the hCG diet to help people lose abnormal fat vs good fat. He used small amounts of hCG along with a low fat, low calorie food plan.
Since then, many people from around the world have followed Dr Simeons hCG diet plan and have experienced positive results at reducing abnormal body fat.
