Even though there ARE some modifications that many are making to the original protocol that Dr. Simeons created, including myself, with what I feel is success, getting an understanding of what the protocol is supposed to accomplish, which involves re-setting your metabolism, not simply weight loss, is not only valuable, it’s important.
In fact, to get a full sense of HOW this protocol is working, I really recommend you read both Dr. Simeon’s manuscript, as well as Robin Woodall’s book Weight-Loss Apocalypse: Emotional Eating Rehab Through the hCG Protocol. Her book is kind of the modern day Pounds and Inches if you will. She discusses more of the current science behind how hCG appears to be interacting with our bodies on this diet – how it is that it changes your hunger, and how it is that it preserves lean muscle while favoring fat loss.
I found being armed with this knowledge to be really important because the diet is not easy. Knowing these details helps us to take the protocol seriously even during….
those moments that our body is screaming “just give me some fries already!!!”
