I think the most discouraging thing with Dr. Simeons’ theory is when he says you can go back to normal eating and still hold your weight does not seem to work out very well.
And yes, that is an actual client quote.
First, this person was correct. However, before starting to doubt the process, consider this:
Yes, it was Dr. Simeons’ “theory” that after the protocol it was feasible to return to “normal” eating. Remember, a […]
You must learn a new way to think before you can master a new way to be. ~ Marianne Williamson
I am tired of diets; how about you?
Don’t get me wrong; I am totally in love with the hCG Protocol. I find it a miracle. However, I have been around diets long enough to really understand and embrace the truth of something I tell my clients.
It’s not what you lose, but what you keep off that’s important.
Once we are successful in losing our excess pounds, the even bigger challenge becomes keeping it off. And for many of us, yo-yo dieting becomes […]
You must be the change you wish to see in the world. ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
We hear a lot about setting intentions to have more success in our endeavors.
What exactly is intention? And how do you set it?
Let’s look at the literal definition of the word intention: an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.
Intention begins as a desire; becomes a thought you carry with you; and a focus to affect a life change.
While you might not have even been aware of it; in truth, you have been using intentions throughout your life. Your intentions have […]
My motto was always to keep swinging. Whether I was in a slump or feeling badly or having trouble off the field, the only thing to do was keep swinging. ~ Hank Aaron
Throughout history, sports figures have given us a plethora of motivational quotes to keep trying, not only on the field, but off it as well.
Hank Aaron was considered one of the greatest baseball players of all time. Yet according to his quote above, there were times when he felt badly, was in a slump, or he had trouble off the field.
How did he fix it? The only thing […]
“I know how to lose weight; in fact, I can do that part really well. So how come I can’t keep it off?”
Almost every client coming into my life has uttered those frustrating words (or similar) during our first moments together.

They are not alone.
Weight loss is a 60 billion dollar industry in the United States. Numerous people are trying yet another weight loss diet. The industry is chalk full of amazing promises, such as this BRAND NEW thing […]

Hidden menus are nothing new.
In the old days, if you were a regular at some diner in your town, you knew you could order things that were not on the regular menu. We just didn’t call it hidden menus back then. Actually, I don’t remember what we called it, we just knew.
Nowadays many chain restaurants offer hidden menus to those patrons that are in the know.
I am probably one of the few on earth that never really liked Panera Bread. Breads are not my weakness, so going to a restaurant that specializes in breads just wasn’t my thing. However, with […]
Maintaining your weight is the most important part of the protocol because it’s the part that will be there for the rest of your life.
Dr. Simeons recommends maintaining your weight during every break you take until you reach your goal. In fact, he says to stay within two pounds of our last injection weight (LIW) during breaks. This window serves as your boundary during both phase 3 of the protocol (three weeks during which we refrain from eating sugars and starches) and phase 4 (without specific dietary restrictions).
Regardless of whether you are on a break or have reached your […]
