What is hCG and how does it result in rapid weight loss?

hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, a hormone/protien present in both men and women, and is produced in greater amounts in pregnant females. During pregnancy, this substance almost completely controls the woman’s metabolic functions and mobilization of fat. In non-pregnant persons, research suggests hCG similarly increases the metabolism similar to a pregnant female. Thousands of calories in stored abnormal fat are released, and are used by the body as fuel or energy or expelled. To keep the fat cells from immediately taking in more fat, the very low fat VLCD is necessary and personal care products such as lotion are prohibited. The NewYou protocol uses oral homeopathic hCG.

The use of hCG in the treatment of obesity was first discovered by the late British Physician, Dr. A. T. W. Simeons.

Dr. Simeons first published a report on the topic in 1954, while practicing in Rome, Italy. He devoted years to researching various patients suffering from obesity. During this time, Simeons noticed several important factors including the lack of symptoms one would expect from a patient on a very low calorie diet. For example, his patients had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness, or irritability as long as the low calorie diet was combined with hCG.

Dr. Simeons and hCG diet results:

Throughout his research, Dr. Simeons noted how patients lost significant amounts of weight while their bodies reshaped naturally- without exercise, and without effort. This led him to discover how patients lost more fat tissue directly from adipose tissue accumulations, causing highly visible contouring of the body.

  • Weight maintenance was not an issue for patients that had undergone the hCG Diet plan. Particularly compared to those who simply went on highly restrictive diets without hCG.
  • hCG regulated the metabolism, correcting that which initially caused the obesity.

How much weight will I lose with the NewYou Protocol?

Most NewYou2011 patients report a loss of 1 to 2 lbs a day. At the very least, 0.5 pounds a day, and at the most, 3+ lbs a day. One pound is generally lost in the first day. Factors that guarantee faster weight loss include adding/increasing vegetable intake and mixing salad with each meal. Fiber intake is extremely important, as is water intake.

Is it healthy to lose 1 to 2 pounds a day with the NewYou Protocol?

hCG weight loss studies have shown that weight lost following the Simeons protocol comes directly from adipose fat tissue rather than lean muscle. In doing so, the weight lost comes directly from fat and does not strip the body of much needed muscle, vitamins or minerals essential to maintain good health, while at the same time, releasing excessive amounts of abnormal fat-stored nutrients into the blood stream to be absorbed by the body. For this reason, NewYou2011 patients report a feeling and appearance of great health and marvel at the loss of negative health risks they had as an overweight individual. Healthy Benefits from our NewYou2011 are reversing the disease of lifestyle; such as Blood Pressure, Cholesterol, Diabetes, Thyroid to name a few.

Why the 500-calorie diet – VLCD (very low calorie diet)?

Oral hCG causes your hypothalamus to mobilize the fat out of the fat storage locations so that it’s available for use. While you are only consuming 500 calories, your hypothalamus is continually releasing the fat stored in your body. Because of this, your body is actually operating on thousands of calories a day. The result is your body using thousands of calories of fat from your body each day, the reason our NewYou clients lose 1 to 2 lbs of fat or more, per day.

Will I be hungry on 500 calories a day?

It is common for mild hunger during the first few days, however this will pass and by the 2nd week, you will find even very tiny servings, to be completely satisfying. This is partly due to your hypothalamus adjusting your metabolic rate, but largely due to the amount of calories circulating in your system from the fat being released. It is common that NewYou patients feel as though they are stuffing themselves in order to reach that 500-calorie limit!

Will I gain the weight back after the NewYou is complete?

After you successfully complete our NewYou protocol, you will find your appetite has changed, your eating behavior will be changed and your body will of course, have changed. This is the perfect opportunity to adopt that healthy lifestyle to maintain your weight.

You will find a minimum amount of exercise will be sufficient for maintaining a very healthy body- from yoga, to 15-minutes of cardio a day, or whatever you enjoy, that gets your heart moving. With your hypothalamus reset, your metabolism reset to normal, you will be able to eat moderately without feeling the need to overeat.

Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking HCG?

Because the amount of HCG is so small, there are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, HCG will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant. It is best to start the HCG while not having your menstrual cycle. Once on the HCG and you begin your menstrual cycle you can continue to take the HCG.

Does the weight loss slow down after the first month?

Many times there is a large amount of weight loss in the first month, then a plateau of leveling off. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion.
