A New Way to Look at Obesity

hcg weight lossThe U.S. has been battling obesity for a few decades. Currently, more than two-thirds of all American adults are considered to be either overweight or obese. It’s important to not only identify how this unhealthy weight gain occurs, but also what can be done to prevent it or at least combat it.

According to A.T.W. Simeons, M.D., the nature of obesity is much more complicated than previously known. Based on clinical observations, there is even a shift in the way we understand causes in obesity and weight gain. Because of this, the HCG weight loss program is becoming more popular. Here are the three main causes of obesity:

The Inherited Factor
The first thought when it comes to obesity causes is that it is passed on through genetics and begins at birth. Having a low diencephalic capacity would represent the inherited factor in obesity, which explains why siblings can have varying obesity levels.

Other Diencephalic Disorders
The second way obesity can be caused is the lowering of a previously high or normal fat-banking capacity. Diabetes, for instance, can result in the diencephalon trying too hard to sustain the necessary blood sugar levels and lead to obesity once the fat-banking capacity is reduced.

The Exhaustion of the Fat-Bank
Like being reduced, overusing the fat-bank capacity can result in obesity as well. When a normal fat center is drastically altered by an influx of food, obesity can be the immediate result.

Because obesity is so common in the United States, dieting has always been extremely popular. At any given moment in the country, for instance, approximately 50% of the entire population is attempting some form of diet.

HCG weight loss program has become a controversial yet popular form of dieting over the years. Contact HCG Supplies today if you want to learn more about combating obesity, learn about HCG shots, or how the HCG weight loss diet works.

Combating Obesity: Understanding the HCG Diet

obesityAmericans have always struggled with obesity. Unfortunately, more than two-thirds of U.S. adults are currently considered to be overweight or obese. Losing all that excess weight is never as easy as it sounds, either. Some people simply have difficulty effectively shedding multiple pounds and keeping them off. Fortunately, that’s where the HCG diet comes in.

During the 1950s, as Americans continued to fight obesity and look for ways to effectively lose weight, Dr. ATW Simeons created the HCG diet. Thanks to Dr. Simeons, Americans toady have the option to use HCG weight loss strategies to get back down to a healthier size and feel much better about themselves.

If you or someone you know is struggling with obesity and wants to learn more about HCG weight loss, it’s best to understand Dr. Simeons’ plan and stick to it as much as possible.

Here is a general outline of Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet:

Breakfast
During breakfast, rather than eating a substantial and carb-induced meal, consider a much smaller meal to only cover the basics. Tea and coffee can be consumed in any amount but be sure to not add any sugar. Only a single tablespoonful of milk is allowed in any 24-hour period during the diet, too. You can, however, use Saccharin or Stevia as substitutes for cane sugar.

Lunch and Dinner
Lunch and dinner is where the bulk of the eating will take place during the HCG diet. If you are sticking to it and are serious about following it, you should only eat the following:

100 grams of either beef, chicken breast, lobster, crab, or shrimp. Be sure to remove all visible fat before you cook and weigh the meat raw.

Only one type of vegetable should be eaten. You can choose from either spinach, beet-greens, green salad, tomatoes, onions, cabbage, asparagus, fennel, chicory, chard, or red radishes.

Additionally, you can add either one bread stick or one piece of Melba toast. And can choose between an apple, a handful of strawberries, or one-half grapefruit.

Do HCG Injections Hurt?

Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet protocol uses HCG Injections on a daily basis so if you’re a bit put off by the idea of having to give yourself injections daily, read on:

“HCG Injections can be quite painless. The whole theory behind HCG is that it helps you to lose weight using only your fat reserves, while at the same time keeping your brain out of “famine” mode and sparing critical fat and muscle.”

The needle gauges we offer are very small – 27g or 28g. Many people have reported barely feeling anything at all when giving themselves the injections, especially with the 28g needle. Of course everyone is different but if you’ve come this far, go for it!

HCG Syringes and Needles

Syringes and needles are a necessity when following the HCG diet. We know some people may be a bit fearful of using needles and this is why we have them in two different sizes.

1. Small/Subcutaneous: This is a 28 gauge, 1/2 inch, 1cc needle-syringe, sometimes referred to as an “insulin-style” syringe. It is typically injected into the stomach/”love-handles” region, or the upper thigh. These are “subcutaneous” injections, which means it goes just below the skin.

2. Large/Intra-muscular: This is a 27gauge, 1 1/4 inch, 3cc needle-syringe. It is typically injected directly into the muscle, usually in the buttocks or upper arm. 

You will need to be sure you have enough supplies to get through your 23 or 43 day protocol. If you are unsure of the size needles and syringes you will need, you can view our Needle and Syringe Size Comparison PDF

[Be sure to contact your physician if you are unsure about where to inject, or any other medical questions.]

Are Injections Absolutely Necessary for Weight Loss?

One question that comes up frequently is whether injections are absolutely necessary or if there is another way to go about using HCG for weight loss. The answer is no, injections are not absolutely necessary; a sublingual (or under the tongue) method is another option but we have found the best results are from the injection method of hCG diet protocol.

If a fear of needles is the reason you want to try the sublingual method, rest assured our needles are very small and many of our customers have reported that they don’t even feel them.
