Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity is a revolutionary concept which covers eating mechanisms and the complex process of dispelling abnormal fat from the body. Dr. A.T.W. Simeons begins by explaining how pre-Neolithic humans ate only when hungry. Much of the food was raw and unrefined like fruits, veggies, nuts and seeds.
The whole structure of the human digestive system is very much like a rat or pig. The process of eating is adjusted to continuous nibbling on tidbits rather than gorging on lavish meals and huge portions of food. The modern way of eating burdens the digestive system, according to Dr. Simeons.
Dr. Simeons explains that there are three kinds of fat. Structural fat is needed to cushion vital organs; otherwise, a tap to the stomach could kill you. Normal fat reserves are localized throughout the body on every limb. Abnormal fat is locked away in fixed deposits. This fat is the most difficult to shed for dieters everywhere. Abnormal fat is responsible for morbid obesity.
Historically, various theoretical notions have failed in the actual execution of weight loss attempts. Thyroid modulation deals with normal fat accumulation not abnormal deposits. Dr. Simeons found that there is no evidence to suggest that excess adrenalcortical activity occurs in obese patients.
He explains that there are three theories of obesity. The first is that fat banking capacity is low at birth. This explains why siblings who eat the same food at the table have vastly different weight experiences during life. Some get fat while others do not. The second reason is the lowering of a previously normal fat banking activity. The third reason is analogous to the poor person getting fat and rich. While poor, he can’t afford to luxuriate on processed foods. A rich person tends to eat more refined foods and larger portions.
On a small daily dose of HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin), patients could subsist on 500 calories a day and lose a pound a day under strict medical supervision. Patients who need to lose 15 pounds or less require 26 days treatment and daily injections of HCG for 23 days. HCG puts abnormal fat back into circulation — something that many diets fail to do. Patients with over 15 pounds to lose can take 40 HCG injections in the first round. Limiting HCG injections to 40 prevents developing an immunity to the injections.
Patients with 100 or more pounds to lose have multiple administrations of HCG at 40 doses of injections for each administration. Some exercise during treatment facilitates weight loss and muscle toning. Again, strict medical supervision is required — especially for morbidly obese patients.
The HCG injections and diet protocol may not be indicated for patients with cardiovascular or gallbladder problems. Contraindications exist for pregnant patients as well. That’s why strict medical supervision is required by responsible practitioners and their patients.
Pounds and Inches: A New Approach to Obesity is a wonderful medical resource on weight management under the strictest medical supervision with a carefully crafted regimen of HCG injections, scientifically portioned diets and strict clinical supervision every step of the way.
Dr. Simeons is a pioneer in the study of body metabolic systems. He discovered the use of injectable atebrin for malaria for which he was awarded a Red Cross Order of Merit, and also a new method of staining malaria parasites now known as “Simeons’ stain.” In addition, Dr. Simeons made historic contributions in the treatment of the bubonic plague and leprosy.
