Diet Doc Discourages the Harmful Simeons hCG Diet and Recommends Higher Calorie Weight Loss Programs

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - April 18, 2017) - Millions of Americans are in search of the perfect weight loss solution, but finding and maintaining an effective diet is no easy task. Generally speaking, reducing 500 calories per day results in 1 to 2 pounds of weight loss per week. Dieters can lose weight faster if they combine a balanced diet with physical activity or medical weight loss solutions.

The original hCG diet, developed by Dr. Simeons in the early 1950s, limited daily calorie consumption to just 500 calories and prescribed small doses of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). This diet was essentially starvation-based and resulted in negative effects like extreme weakness, hair loss, and muscle loss. For that reason, it was eventually declared "unsafe" by medical experts, nutritionists, and leading weight loss centers like Diet Doc Weight Loss.

hCG is a hormone produced during pregnancy that contains 244 amino acids and has been linked to rapid weight loss by supposedly reducing "abnormal" fat from cells and around internal organs. Now, as researchers have learned more about the hCG hormone, safer hCG treatment programs with higher calorie requirements are available. Typically, these programs involve undergoing hCG treatment while consuming between 800 to 1250 calories every day. As a result, dieters can lose weight consistently while minimizing the negative side effects associated with the original Simeons method of hCG dieting.

Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss program, has continuously discouraged the Simeons method of hCG dieting and suggests high-calorie programs that involve safer weight loss. Doctor-supervision and diet customization based on nutritional needs are also highly recommended.
