HCG Diet & Weight Loss Program

Dr. Simeons Protocol

As a result of the work of British physician Dr. Simeons, many Americans have recently become acquainted with his diet. People around the world have used his treatment protcol and achieved weight loss. Losing weight with this program has been found to be the a way to lose weight without sacrificing your health and metabolism.

Introduction to our diet

We have all dieted again and again or tried the most fat-melting workouts. Sometimes we see results and sometimes we go for weeks without the loss of a single pound. Does it sound familiar? The good news is that it's not your "will power" or motivation at fault. An area of your brain called the diencephalon, in combination with your hypothalaumus, is responsible for stubborn fat stores. Dr. Simeons research was the first to suggest a link between hormones, obesity, and the weight regulatory center in our brain.

As Dr. Simeons did, we use a bio-identical hormone, which exists normally in our body. Its main effect is to maintain progesterone production in order to maintain and protect a pregnancy. Therefore, the safety of a naturally occurring hormone is apparent.

It was first discovered by Dr. Simeons that a particular hormone in combination with a specific healthy low calorie diet, grabs your extra fat deposits -- no matter where it is stored -- forcing it into the blood stream where it is burned as energy.

The end result is that your "problem" fat storage areas (such as the stomach, buttocks, love handles, thighs, etc.) begin to shrink. Not just the "easy" fat.


Dr. Simeons first introduced his weight loss program in the 1950's, but it did not gain acceptance until decades later. In 1960's Dr. Simeons weight loss protocol migrated to the U.S. from Europe. Recent years have brought a revival to his diet program, and have shown again the effectiveness and safety of this type of weight loss.

How the diet works

This program changes the way your body metabolizes food. When your body senses the hormone, it thinks that it's "pregnant". If you only eat 500 calories a day your body will pull the calories it needs from your fat cell to bring them into the bloodstream to "feed the baby". Since there is no baby, you get to use those calories, so you feel fine, have energy, and your appetite decreases as well.


The hormone has many health and wellness benefits. Many of our dieting patients with diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol see a significant improvement in these chronic medical conditions. Many have had their blood pressure return to normal after losing about 20 to 30 lbs. The hormone has been shown in recent scientific studies to be an anti-cancer agent reducing the risk of breast cancer and improve prostate health. Many of our diet program patients have previously tried many other diets with limited success, most often regaining the lost weight within months after discontinuing it. We have seen these same patients report losing fat from areas of their body that they have never been able to lose before, while having more energy and less hunger than experienced with other very low calorie diets. With rapid weight loss you normally experience loss in muscle and not fat, which can result in sagging or loose skin. However, with this diet you will maintain your muscle mass and lose only fat.

Our Program

In our clinic we closely follow Dr.Simeons' original protocol which uses daily pharmaceutical grade hormone injections, along with a low carbohydrate, calorie restricted diet, as a component of a very successful weight loss program. Some clinics’ weight loss plans may recommend other "easier" forms of hormone administration such as drops taken by mouth, nasal sprays or even creams or gels absorbed thru the skin. The truth is that unless this hormone is injected, the amount actually getting into the body can vary over 400% from one individual to another. Also, you will need to purchase 400% more hormone to even hope to get the same results. Don't be fooled by homeopathic or other alternative formulations.

Our program includes:

  • Office Visit and explanation of the program, risks, benefits and costs involved
  • A supply of hormone, syringes and needles
  • Training in the self administration of the daily injections
  • Orientation and description of the specific 500 calorie diet
  • Weekly visits to check current weight and access progress
  • Diet and behavioral modification counseling
  • Optional Medifast enrollment including access to a professional nutritional councilor via toll free number
  • A comprehensive manual "Optimal Nutrition" to help you maintain your weight loss after the diet
  • A copy of Simeons' book "Pounds and Inches"

Our Program is available to existing or new patients who have been evaluated by Dr. Zakany. Your age, gender and past medical history may determine that certain blood tests are necessary prior to you being able to participate in this diet. Not every patient qualifies for the diet. During a free consultation Dr. Zakany will discuss any potential risks and costs of recommended lab testing prior to you starting the diet program and making any financial commitment.


Dependent on weight loss goals, our patients are put on anywhere between a 3 to 6 week diet program with typical weight loss of 5 pounds per week. A maintenance diet is then recommended for a few weeks to help fully reset the "appetite control center" in the hypothalamus. After a period of at least 4 weeks, another diet program can be restarted, if greater weight loss is desired. A free 30 minute consultation with Dr. Zakany is available to anyone wanting to discuss their options available to optimize future health.

Disclaimer: This effect has not been proven scientifically. Our program uses a drug which has not been approved by the food and drug administration as safe and effective in the treatment of obesity or weight control. There is no substantial evidence that this hormone increases weight loss beyond that resulting from caloric restriction, that it causes a more attractive or "normal" distribution of fat, or that it decreases the hunger and discomfort associated with calorie-restrictive diets. *As with any weight loss program, there are no guarantees for individual weight loss. Information provided herein is based on historical research, studies, and results from the many thousands of former weight loss clients. Individual success is dependent upon a variety of factors.
