The Best Diet You Have Never Heard Of is a modernized and improved revision of the "original" Dr. Simeons 500 calorie hCG diet protocol. Developed over 3 years ago, Dr. Larry Vickman, MD, Dr. Connie Odom, MD and Sonia Russell, LPN are the first medical professionals to provide a safer and more tolerable protocol for the patient by removing the safety concerns many experience with the original 500 calorie protocol. The physicians have integrated the latest modern medical advancements and increased both the daily protein and caloric intake from the original 500 calories/day to an LCD of 800 calories/day.
The revised protocol is also utilized as the new standard in hCG weight loss therapy for the prescribing practitioner.

The Best Diet You Have Never Heard Of - Physician Updated 800 Calorie hCG Diet Removes Health Concerns - Dr. Larry Vickman MD



The hCG diet was discovered by a British endocrinologist Dr. A.T.W. Simeons who was always looking for cures for current-day medical problems.

Dr. Simeons had already pioneered an anti-malaria drug and studied bubonic plague and leprosy in India when he turned his attentions to weight-loss and obesity in the 1950’s.

One day, a woman came to his office in Rome for a weight-loss consultation. He was on the phone as she sat down and when he looked up at her, he noticed she was emaciated. Her skin was dry and loose, her collarbone and ribs protruding. He hung up the phone and was about to tell her she had the wrong doctor when she stood up. I know you think I’m mad, but just wait.

As she rounded his desk, he saw that she had enormous hips and thighs below her small waist.

Dr. Simeons had studied a hormone called hCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), which was produced in the placenta of pregnant women. It converts stored body fat into nutrition for the baby.

The hCG hormone was being extracted from the urine of pregnant women and given to young boys suffering from Froehlich Syndrome. These were the so called fat boys with oversized breasts and undersized sexual organs. He had noticed that the hCG helped the boys lose their appetites and inches around their hips.

Dr. Simeons treated the woman with 125 IU’s (international units) of pharmaceutical hCG. Within 8 weeks, she lost 8 inches around her hips. He claimed that by using the hCG, combined with a calorie restricted diet and a 30 minute daily walk, the woman was able to get rid of her reserve fat.

By 1967, weight-loss patients from around the world flocked to Dr. Simeon’s clinic in Rome. He was treating Hollywood starlets, royalty, the rich and famous.

He was spending enormous amounts of time telling other doctors and hospitals about his hCG diet, so he put together a protocol titled, Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity.

His claim: men and women who used the hCG diet had no headaches, hunger pains, weakness or irritability and lost on average a pound a day.

By the 1970s, hCG was the most widely administered obesity medication in the United States, but it was only approved by the FDA as a fertility drug. So in 1976, the Federal Trade Commission ordered Dr. Simeons to stop claiming that his hCG program was safe or approved by the FDA for weight-control. The order did not stop the clinics from using hCG. It just required that patients be informed in writing the following:

HCG has not been demonstrated to be an effective adjunctive therapy in the treatment of obesity. There is no substantial evidence that it increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or normal distribution of fat or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restricted diets.

Today, hCG is still not approved by the FDA as a weight loss medication but it is more popular than ever. One book on hCG sold over 4 million copies and reached the New York Times bestseller list. Thousands of people have successfully lost weight with hCG.

Dr. Simeons originally put his patients on a strict 500 calorie diet with very tight controls on exactly which foods could be used. Dr. Simeons prohibited his patients from use of regular medications prescribed by their physician. His patients were not allowed to eat breakfast or take any vitamins except for coral calcium. They could only take hCG by intramuscular injection. 50 years later, experienced weight loss physicians and experts have updated and modernized Dr. Simeons original hCG diet protocol. The new protocol suggests a daily calorie intake between 550-800 which we have found more tolerable, equally effective and much safer than the original 500. Here is why; our experience suggests that the hCG hormone triggers the hypothalamus in the brain by stimulating the release of abnormal fat deposits when the body is in starvation mode. By definition, starvation mode is an intake of less than 800 calories daily. We have found that our patients were able to tolerate a 550-800 daily calorie intake much better than a strict 500. Many patients found they were most comfortable around 700 calories rather than 500 daily and were able to complete the entire 6 week protocol. The additional calories we added to their diets were mostly obtained from protein sources which have 3 major benefits. Protein will assist in preserving your lean muscle mass, increase fat burning and may help curb the appetite. We noticed fewer complaints of hunger, a decrease in the occurrence of diet plateaus and the weight loss results were similar to those at 500 calories. We have found that the key to success on our new protocol is to stay below 800 calories, carefully follow our food guide provided, take a daily multi-vitamin/mineral, avoid skipping breakfast, consume more protein daily, continue all prescription medications and participate in light exercise for 30 minutes daily. We believe that our medically updated and modified protocol has shown to be safer, more effective and much more tolerable for the patient.

The original hCG Diet Protocol suggested that the hCG hormone triggers the release of stored fats and delivers the nutrition your body needs to supplement the low-calorie diet. This is the same effect that a woman would experience if unable to tolerate food while pregnant, the hCG hormone would detect an insufficient amount of calories and therefore access the mother’s additional fat reserves and deliver the nutrition in the form of calories to the baby. This mechanism will spare the healthy lean muscle tissue because the hCG hormone does not utilize muscle for nutrition

Our patients have successfully lost weight while taking hCG without the effects of feeling tired and hungry. In addition, many have reported an increase in energy and motivation. Most women who carefully follow the hCG Diet Protocol have lost on average a half a pound per day or 25 to 35 pounds in 40 days. Men who carefully follow the hCG Diet Protocol tend to lose more, about a pound per day or 35 to 45 pounds.

As experienced Bariatric Weight loss Physicians, we feel it is imperative to educate our readers on how to lose weight safely while on the hCG diet or any restricted calorie weight loss
