Simply put, HCG helps dieters lose weight by metabolizing the body’s stored fat during the dieting process. This not only keeps you energized while on a very low calorie diet, but it also helps you lose inches faster than with diet and exercise alone.
There are two types of fat in your body. The first type is visceral fat, which provides short-term energy storage. When you engage in short bursts of activity, you burn visceral fat. The second type is subcutaneous fat, which your body uses for long-term energy storage. Visceral fat is located in the abdomen, situated around your vital organs. Subcutaneous fat is located all over your body. Generally, about 90% of the fat in the human body is subcutaneous. Additionally, women typically have a higher percentage of subcutaneous fat as opposed to men, who typically carry more visceral fat. Regardless of sex, however, this subcutaneous fat is the “stubborn” fat that is hard to lose with diet and exercise. Subcutaneous fat is the same “stored fat” that HCG metabolizes.
HCG metabolizes your subcutaneous fat by communicating with your hypothalamus, a very important part of your brain that regulates most of your metabolic functions such as hunger, thirst, body temperature, fatigue and more. In the case that you are undernourished – that is, you are consuming fewer calories than you are burning – HCG will tell your hypothalamus to metabolize your subcutaneous fat for adequate nourishment. HCG allows your body to retrieve your stored energy by burning that stubborn fat.
The amazing effects of HCG on the hypothalamus were discovered by Dr. Albert T. W. Simeons who observed that malnourished women tend to give birth to health babies with normal birth weights. Dr. Simeons concluded that women are able to do this because the HCG hormone that their bodies naturally produced during pregnancy helped their bodies to metabolize subcutaneous fat. During pregnancy, HCG was able to provide proper nourishment for not only the babies but also the mothers by tapping into the mothers’ stored energy.
Dr. Simeons later used HCG to treat obesity with great success. His methods, which are still used by physicians today, are laid out in his 1954 bookPounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity. We include a copy of Dr. Simeons book in every order, so you can fully understand the science behind the method and ensure the best results possible!
