Weight Loss Program

Our program involves Homeopathic or Injection HCG combined with very low calorie diet, mild to moderate excercise, dietary supplements, prescription medications and behavioral modification. It is quick, effective and simple. It is medically guided and involves a 4-Step package beginning with an individual comprehensive medical evaluation performed by a physician and his designated team. Our results are phenomenal verify.

Why medically supervised?
Our providers believe that diet plans combined with HCG is not intended for everyone. It is an extreme diet reserved for the seriously obese. It targets the diencephalon or hypothalamous, which is the part of the brain that all the automatic functions of the body such as food intake, breathing, body temperature, feeling of rage, aggression, sleep, heart beats, digestive, sex and urinary symptoms take place. The hypothalamous is the primary organ in the body responsible to regulate metabolism. It is of course important that one looks at the organs that are under its control before the protocol is initiated.  

Why the HCG Diet?
HCG combined with all the above mentioned is one of the most effective diets on the market. It can bring relief to every case of obesity. It is time consuming and required perfect cooperation between physician and patient. To understand how it works we will need to go into the science of HCG. 

What is HCG?
HCG is scientifically known as the Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. It is a naturally occuring protein hormone that develops in the placenta during the first trimester of pregnancy shortly after conception. This hormone is believed to help reset the hypothalamous by sending signals causing it to mobilize fat out of the fat storage locations while conserving and maintaining lean body mass. While one is consuming 500 calories, the Hypothalamous continues to release the fat for use by the body as a primary source of energy. These signals are activated when the body senses a reduction in calorie brought on by using low calorie diet. The body would otherwise deplete its muscle without the assistance of the HCG during a low calorie diet. This phenomenon results in lowering your resting metabolic rate (RMR), increasing wellness feelings and phenomenal body transformations. view: weight loss and obesity    

Weight Loss is on the minds of millions every day.  To understand why weight loss is so difficult to achieve you need to understand why your body accumulates extra weight in the form of fat.  Every Body contains its own weight loss mechanism. Losing weight can be simple and painless once you know how to turn your mechanism on. You may be surprised to learn it's not what you eat but what you don't eat that is behind your weight loss problems. We teach our patient to think in terms of loosing fat not so much in loosing weight. Before you begin another diet or weight loss program, see if you don't agree with us.  If you are concerned about weight loss, the chances are very great you have never had access to this information before

Understanding Fat: 3 Kinds of Fat (Dr. Simeon's Version)
In the human body, we can distinguish three kinds of fat. The first is the structural fat which fills the gaps between various organs, a sort of packing material. Structural fat also performs such important functions as bedding the kidneys in soft elastic tissue, protecting the coronary arteries, and keeping the skin smooth and taut. It also provides the springy cushion of hard fat under the bones of the feet, without which we would be unable to walk.

The second type of fat is a normal reserve of fuel which the body can freely draw upon when the nutritional income from the intestinal tract is insufficient to meet the demand. Such normal reserves are localized all over the body. Fat is a substance which packs the highest caloric value into the smallest space, so that normal reserves of fuel for muscular activity and the maintenance of body temperature can be most economically stored in this form. Both these types of fat, structural and reserve, are normal and even if the body stocks them to capacity this can never be called obesity. Obesity & Weight Loss

But there is a third type of fat that is entirely abnormal. It is the accumulation of such fat from which the overweight patient suffers. This abnormal fat is also a potential reserve of fuel, but unlike the normal reserves it is not available to the body in a nutritional emergency. It is, so to speak, locked away in a fixed deposit and is not kept in a current account, as are the normal reserves. See how we calculate your body fat percentage: InBodyBIA

When an obese patient tries to reduce calories by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted, he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves. However, by that time the patient usually feels so weak and hungry that the diet is abandoned. It is just for this reason that obese patients complain that when they diet they lose the wrong fat. They feel famished, tired, and their face becomes drawn and haggard, but their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest stays on and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. That part is one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences.

What is BMR? BMI? DCN?
BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) - is a mathematical formula that calculates the number of calories you would burn even if you stay in bed all day sleeping. 
BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measurment of body Fat based on Height and Weight. It can be use to indicate if you are Underweight, Overweight, Obese or Normal Weight.
DCN (Daily calorie Needs) is measured by taking the BMR multiply (x) by an activity factor. These activity factors (excercise) are as follow:
Sedentary = 1.2, Light = 1.375, Moderate = 1.55, Hard = 1.725, Very Hard = 1.9
