History of the HCG Diet

History of the HCG Diet


Bioidentical HRT in Florida – and other parts of the US – is a treatment that is used to cure hormonal imbalance. Numerous clinics use this to treat individuals who have low/high level of particular hormones in the body, as well as their negative effects.

Often, medical facilities that offer BHRT also offer other services like HCG. Human chorionic gonadotropin, or HCG, is a hormone that is used for weight loss products. As a matter of fact, it is essential in the HCG diet, which is a food regimen that can help people lose weight.

Brief information about the body

The body contains a particular amount of fat. Some of them are necessary while others are unhelpful. Here are the 3 types of fat that can be found in the body:

  1. Normal fat – The body needs these type of reserved fats to use as energy source.
  2. Structural fat – This is the type of fat that acts as a “packing material” and it can be found around the organs inside our body
  3. Abnormal fat – This one is not supposed to be in our bodies; in fact, it is known to cause obesity. Abnormal fat is usually found along the stomach, hips, thighs, buttocks, back, knee, underarms and even at the back of the neck

Once the formation of abnormal fat starts, it’s best to eliminate them as soon as possible. The normal ways to lessen abnormal fat is through continuous exercised and proper diet. However, there are people who cannot seem to lose unwanted fat. This is where the HCG diet comes in. 

Explanation of the HCG diet

The HCG diet began in the 1950’s, thanks to Dr. ATW Simeons who conducted rigorous studies that involves injecting small doses of a pregnancy hormone called HCG to obese patients. This resulted to a decrease in appetite and weight loss. He also noticed how the diet helped remove particular amounts of weight situated around the stomach, thighs, hips, and the buttocks.

Brief history of HCG diet

As previously mentioned, Dr. ATW Simeons was the pioneer of the HCG who discovered how it can be used to eradicate abnormal fat in the body. He is a British endocrinologist who has exerted around 10 years of study in order to come up with this diet.

The Human Chorionic Gonadotropin contains 244 amino acids and it is commonly produced in huge amounts in a pregnant female’s placenta. The hormone is extracted from her urine. Back then, its main purpose was to treat infertile women and help them ovulate. For the men, it was used as a precursor to develop their low testosterone levels. However, as time went by, it was discovered that it can also be used to help eliminate abnormal fat. The HCG affects the hypothalamus gland, an organ responsible for the production of abnormal and normal fat in the body.

Since then, the diet became popular around the world. By 1967, Dr. Simeons was able to publish “Pounds and Inches” wherein he shared a new way to counter obesity that will enable health care professionals to further understand his studies. After that, he was started the “Fat Clinics” which was a continued analysis of his study.

HCG has been an ongoing treatment that aid people who struggle with weight. Consult your doctor if you wish to undergo this treatment.
