"The diet was originally formulated in the early 1950's by British endocrinologist Dr. Arthur Simeons," says weight management specialist Dr. Connie Tambakis-Odom, an expert in the HCG diet protocol. "Dr. Simeons injected his obese patients with the HCG hormone to trigger the metabolism of stored body fat, enabling them to effortlessly lose up to 1 pound per day with little or no exercise."
Dr. Connie Odom says the recent advent of homeopathic oral HCG drops has made the HCG diet plan more affordable for the average American. However, the FDA recently announced that homeopathic HCG products contain no HCG hormone and can't be sold. With over-the-counter HCG off the market, diets using doctor-prescribed HCG have remained under scrutiny by medical experts due to their restrictive 500 calorie limit.
Dr. Odom has teamed with fellow weight management specialist Dr. Larry Vickman MD, licensed practical nurse Sonia Russell, and pro fitness trainer Dean Yannello to co-author a medically updated version" of the 50-year-old HCG diet entitled, The Best Diet You Have Never Heard Of
"We observed that Dr. Simeon's protocol was able to produce significant weight loss, but in the majority of cases it wasn't being safely administered according to currently accepted medical practices," says Dr. Odom.
Dr. Connie Odom says the new HCG diet protocol contains the following improvements:
- Diet is monitored by an experienced HCG weight loss physician
- Daily protein intake increased to preserve lean muscle mass
- Daily calorie intake increased to 800 to improve diet tolerance
- Dieters allowed to take vitamins as well as other prescribed medications
- Only doctor-prescribed pharmaceutical HCG hormone is used
