By Sharon C. Sullivan, New Beginnings hCG Clinics, SW Florida –
The snowbirds have flown back north and those of us who are here year around are planning all the things we meant to do but the crush of “season” kept us from doing. One thing that is on many peoples’ mind is achieving a better figure or a healthier weight. Summertime is close and for many it is an easier time to focus on achieving better health through weight loss.
Weight Loss Is Rapid
New Beginnings hCG Clinics follow the traditional hCG diet developed over 45 years ago by the endocrinologist, A.T.W. Simeon, MD. We offer people a chance to radically change their relationship to food by eating a clean and unprocessed diet free of industrial additives and stabilizers. Plain lean protein and large quantities of leafy vegetables and whole fruits are the basis of this diet. Because of the action of the hormone hCG, fat is mobilized while stopping hunger. The weight loss is quite rapid, often as much as a pound a day, and the fat loss is remarkable. Dr. Simeon called his treatise “Pounds and Inches” because of the targeted fat loss.

One of the Most Popular Diet Programs
In the past 4 years, the hCG diet has become more and more popular. Last year, with the positive programs about the diet on the Dr. Oz show and others, the diet has become one of the most popular around. The hCG protocol has actually been around for years, even in SW Florida. I still get the occasional woman in my office that was on the program 30 years ago in Fort Myers. Now with the explosion of obesity and the health concerns it has generated, everyone is looking for the “quick fix.” hCG seems to be the “flavor of the month.”
Not a Quick Fix
It is true that the hCG diet offers a very rapid weight loss, but I do not want anyone to think it is a quick fix. For weight loss to be transformational, there must be long term follow through with a maintenance plan. hCG does cause rapid weight loss but each six week protocol is followed with a stabilization period to reset the body’s metabolism. I think this is where the true difference lies. Otherwise, there is the chance of weight rebound.
The Cause of Yo-Yo Dieting
What we emphasize to our dieters at New Beginnings is the importance of a long term maintenance plan to achieve permanent weight loss. Without the stabilizing effect of a maintenance program, no weight loss can be permanent. In fact, your body is destined to return to a certain “set point” weight. This is a real cause of yo-yo dieting. We believe certain steps taken to stabilize weight after rapid loss can insure that a new “set point” is achieved for the body. Our dieters who follow this regimen are surprised at how easy this step can be.
