The history of the HCG diet begins in the 1950s with a British endocrinologist named Dr. A.T.W. Simeons, who used Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) as a way for people to lose excess fat.
The history of HCG started with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin, which produces approximately 244 amino acids. HCG is produced in a pregnant female’s placenta and the HCG is extracted from urine. This type of method of using HCG was used to treat infertility in females to assist with ovulation. HCG also can help increase the low testosterone levels in males. Dr. Simeons made a discovery when treating adolescent males with low testosterone levels. He discovered that the males became slimmer and they began to lose abnormal belly fat. Dr. Simeons made a conclusion that the HCG diet affected the hypothalamus postively and he discovered that the hypothalamus gland was the cause of the weight loss.
10 years later, Dr. Simeons experimented with specific foods and certain amounts of the HCG. Simeons proved that when you combine the correct dose of HCG with his food plan, men and women had the ability to lose weight in short periods of time. Men and women could lose weight just by following the HCG diet and there was no need for exercise.
The history of HCG diet began to spread and Dr. Simeons became famous. Healthcare professionals nationwide and globally began to learn more about the history of the HCG diet. Dr. Simeons published a book called “Pounds & Inches, a New Approach to Obesity” in 1967. This book helped people understand the history of the HCG diet and Dr. Simeons’ work. “Fat Clinics” began to blossom in North America in Europe after Simeons’ book was published.
Dr. Simeons’ HCG diet remained popular over the years, but the HCG diet popularity began to flourish again in 2007 with the release of homeopathic HCG drops. Kevin Trudeau, a highly successful author mentioned the HCG diet in his best-selling book “the Weight Loss Cure, What They Don’t Want You To Know.” Trudeau included the history of the HCG diet in his book and gave Dr. Simeons a new found fan base. The HCG diet has gained its popularity again over the recent years thanks to Kevin Trudeau and other healthcare professionals.
