Arizona Republic

April 1st, 2011



 

The HCG diet has received a lot of publicity recently in the media, some being very positive and others- not so much. Recently the Arizona Republic wrote an article that took specific aim at the HCG diet quoting comments from a representative of the Food and Drug Administration, FDA. Although, the article doesn’t offer proof, most of it being opinion and speculation, we wanted to address a few of the issues and bring some facts in to light.

First, they use the word fraud very loosely. In the article they are using it mainly because of the debate of whether or not HCG can use Homeopathic in conjunction with its name. They have yet to find any proof against the HCG diet being an effective weight loss tool. In fact, the article does point out that even though they have had some complaints that the diet didn’t work, there have been hundreds that give testimony that they have safely and successfully lost weight on this program.

The problem is that the FDA has taken opinion and speculation of biased doctors or so called “experts” who have ulterior motives to misrepresent the HCG diet results and/or side effects. They say that since the drops only contain trace amounts of the HCG hormone, it cannot possibly be enough to assist with the diet. What they don’t know is that Dr. Simeons says that you only need 125 I.U. of HCG a day to carry out the diet.
Most patients taking the injections are getting about 200-250 I.U. of HCG a day, much higher than is needed. Companies like ours that offer the drops in high dosages (Ingredients: HCG 3x) are offering a safe and effective way for you to get about 125 I.U. of HCG to carry out a successful diet. Here at HCG Renew, we have helped hundreds of people that have hit road blocks in their weight loss journey achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle that will help them for years to come.

Second, this is not a new fad diet as portrayed by some media outlets. Beginning in the 40′s, Dr. Simeons did decades of research on the HCG diet and its results and side effects. He developed the HCG diet as a weight loss cure. He found the results to be favorable to help people lose unhealthy and unwanted weight gain.

The other study he points out is that this is one of the only diets that work directly with the hypothalamus gland. The hypothalamus gland controls many things, one being your metabolism. By resetting the hypothalamus gland it allows the HCG user to have a greater success of keeping the weight off afterwards. Keeping the weight off after a weight loss cycle happens to be the largest concern for many dieters.

Most low calorie or weight loss clinics offer consumers a weight loss of 1-2 pounds a week. HCG offers a weight loss that is up to 1 pound a day. This of course is very desirable to the consumer because it is very discouraging to be on a low calorie diet and suffer little to no results. Most people think that because HCG is combined with a low calorie diet, it is the low calories, not the HCG, that makes the weight loss possible. This is false.

HCG focuses on fat loss not weight loss. Most low calorie diets do not help you lose the abnormal fat as desired. They force your body in to a katabolic state in which it begins eating its own muscle and saving the fat for emergencies, which is not safe or healthy. The HCG diet helps you lose the fat while keeping muscle, which helps create visible physical results in as little as 2-3 weeks without the torture of hunger pains. It is an amazing program.

We recommend that you do your own research and find out if this program is the best option for you. We suggest that you read Dr. Simeons book ‘Pounds and Inches’ to learn more about his extensive research. He goes into to so much detail in his book but makes it easy to understand. We offer a copy of the Dr. Simeons book with every kit we sell.

If you have been trying to lose weight and have been stuck, this could be your best option to get your body moving again. If you have any questions you can always call our customer service (602-507-8446 ) to have your questions answered and find out more about how this could help you regain control of your weight and renew your life.


Obesity and Diabetes – The Problem and The Cure

January 27th, 2011



For adults, the direct association of obesity with diabetes, elevated lipids, coronary heart disease, cerebral vascular accident and elevated blood pressure has been well established.
In fact, just as the obesity rate has exploded in our culture, so has the escalation of chronic deadly diseases. (For an eye-popping video showing how Obesity has become an epidemic, see: Real Scary Obesity Trends in America)

For some, the risks associated with obesity are severe enough to warrant radical solutions such as gastric bypass surgery, Lap-Band surgery, or other types of obesity surgery. The medical complications that could result from these extreme measures are severe in and of themselves, but when weighing the pros and cons, remaining obese in some cases is a worse option than undergoing surgery.

But the HCG Diet Protocol, researched and developed over 60 years ago by Dr. Simeons, is a safe, effective alternative that can cure obesity without surgery or other invasive procedures (like liposuction, etc.).

With hundreds of thousands of success stories and a near 100% success rate, the HCG Protocol should be the FIRST thing one does to correct the problem of obesity and in almost all cases, will be the LAST.

And if you have Diabetes due to obesity, don’t be surprised if the newly transformed body that you get with the HCG Diet no longer needs Diabetes medications, because many, many people that have completed the HCG Protocol find they have cured themselves of Diabetes as well.
If you are obese with diabetes, you owe it to yourself to look into the HCG weight loss protocol as a potential cure for your condition – it’s worked for thousands of people over many decades.


Gaining a Pound a Year After Age 20 Nearly Doubles Women’s Breast Cancer Risk

January 21st, 2011



7 ways to keep your weight steady as you age.

By Deborah Kotz

Gaining a pound or two a year after age 20 is the norm for most Americans, which explains why two-thirds of us are overweight by the time we hit our 50s. Not only does that put us at increased risk of heart disease and diabetes, but it can also increase a woman’s chances of developing postmenopausal breast cancer. A new National Cancer Institute study of 72,000 women found that those who had a normal body mass index at age 20 and gained through the decades to become overweight–an increase of at least 5 BMI units, which is equivalent to a 30- pound gain for a 5- foot, 4- inch woman–had nearly double the risk of developing breast cancer after menopause compared to women who kept their weight steady as they aged. (The average 60- year-old woman’s risk of developing breast cancer by age 65 is about 2 percent; her lifetime risk is 13 percent.)

“Weight gain is a major risk factor for breast cancer,” and could play as much of a role as other known risk factors, like family history of cancer, or the age at first menstruation or childbirth, says study coauthor Regina Ziegler, an epidemiologist at NCI. That’s probably because the accumulation of excess body fat over time increases the level of estrogen in the body, which is thought to fuel the growth of most postmenopausal breast cancer tumors. Interestingly, the study also found that women who started off overweight or obese at age 20 didn’t have any increase in breast cancer risk, which contradicts other research showing that obesity increases the risk of postmenopausal breast cancer as well as several other cancers including colon, endometrial, kidney, and esophageal, according to the NCI’s website.

Unfortunately, few women are able to maintain their post-college dress size, a testament to how tough it is to prevent that mid-life bulge. (Nearly 57 percent of the study participants failed to do so.) “As you progress through mid-life, you’ll find your metabolism naturally slows down,” says Jana Klauer, a New York City physician and nutritionist specializing in obesity treatment and author of How the Rich Get Thin. In other words, if you maintain the same Big Mac habits you had in college, you’ll pack on pounds. So what does it take to keep the scale steady? “A lot of effort,” says Klauer. Here are her 7 steps for beating the odds:

1. Cut back on calories. “Your metabolic rate peaks in your 20s,” says Klauer, because your body is still adding bone mass and churning out a lot of hormones to keep you fertile. After age 30, your metabolism slows by about 5 to 7 percent per decade. That means if you were eating about 2,500 calories per day to maintain your weight in your 20s, you’d have to eat about 125 to 175 fewer calories each day to keep the scale from inching upward. By the time you hit your 50s, you’d need to cut back by 300 to 500 calories a day to keep the same waistline you had in your 20s.

2. Sweat, sweat, sweat. If you don’t want to cut your food intake too much, increase your calorie-burning activities. Those who aren’t counting calories probably need to exercise for about an hour each day, every day of the week to truly keep the pounds off, according to a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. The researchers looked at 34,000 nondieting women (average age 54) and found that those who worked out for an hour a day–the equivalent of a brisk walk–kept themselves slim through the years. While those who worked out less gained weight, they still benefitted from lower risks of heart disease and diabetes, compared to their sedentary counterparts.

3. Lift weights. Muscle burns more calories than fat, so building muscle helps keep your metabolism revved up as you age. Unfortunately, your body begins to shed muscle in your 40s if you don’t do anything to maintain it. Doing resistance training with free weights or weight machines at the gym three or four days a week can go a long way towards helping you retain muscle and boost your metabolism. Klauer recommends hiring a personal trainer for three or four sessions to learn the proper form and prevent injuries.

4. Be wary of hormonal birth control. Birth control pills, intrauterine devices that release progesterone, and especially the progesterone-only shot, Depo-Provera, can cause weight gain in some women. A 2009 study published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology found that women who used the Depo shot gained an average of 11 pounds over three years compared to an average gain of 3 to 4 pounds among women who used other forms of contraception. But the study also found that only 25 percent of Depo users gained a significant amount of weight, and Klauer says the same holds true for other forms of hormonal contraception. For example, some women gain 15 pounds on a particular brand of pill, while others don’t. “It’s extremely individual and probably related to genetics,” she adds. If you’re taking hormones and have noticed recent weight gain of five or ten pounds with no obvious explanation, she says, you might want to try switching to a different formulation to see if that helps.

5. Get an optimal amount of sleep. Research has shown that getting too little or too much sleep increases a person’s risk of heart disease and metabolic syndrome, a precursor to diabetes. Getting an adequate amount of sleep, says Klauer, ensures that your body produces enough leptin, a hormone released during deep sleep that regulates your hunger drive. That’s why sleep deprivation tends to lead to overeating. While most adults need about 7 to 8 hours of shut-eye each night, some of us require a bit more or a bit less. How to tell how much you need? Go to bed a few nights in a row without an alarm clock and see what time you naturally wake up the next morning. (Best to try this when you don’t need to make an early flight or work meeting!)

6. Eat six mini-meals a day. Klauer recommends eating one small meal every three hours to help curb those hunger pangs that trigger overeating. Research also suggests that eating mini-meals at regular times throughout the day boosts metabolism and balances blood sugar levels. Mini-meals should be about 250 to 300 calories consisting of a mixture of carbohydrates, protein, and a dollop of fat. Some nutritious ideas: two slices of turkey breast with lettuce and tomato on whole-wheat bread; a mixed-green salad topped with strawberries, sliced pears, and a serving of sliced almonds; one bowl of high-fiber cereal and a cup of light yogurt.

7. Weigh yourself regularly. While you don’t want to be a slave to your scale, weighing yourself a few times a week can help you keep track of weight gain and reverse course before you find you can’t button your favorite jeans. Need proof? A 2006 study from Cornell University found that college freshmen who were told to weigh themselves every morning gained almost no weight during the school year compared with a 7-pound gain for those who weren’t given a scale.


Many Americans Don’t Even Know They’re Fat

October 19th, 2010



AFP/File – Physical exercise can reduce a genetic predisposition to obesity by an average of 40 percent, a new study …
By Amanda Gardner
THURSDAY, Sept. 2 (HealthDay News) — Many Americans have skewed perceptions when it comes to their weight, often believing they are thinner than they really are, even when the scales are shouting otherwise, a new poll finds.
As part of the Harris Interactive/HealthDay survey, respondents were asked to provide their height and weight, from which pollsters calculated their body-mass index (BMI), a ratio of weight to height. Respondents were then asked which category of weight they thought they fell into.
Thirty percent of those in the “overweight” class believed they were actually normal size, while 70 percent of those classified as obese felt they were simply overweight. Among the heaviest group, the morbidly obese, almost 60 percent pegged themselves as obese, while another 39 percent considered themselves merely overweight.
These findings may help to explain why overweight and obesity rates in the United States continue to go up, experts say.
“While there are some people who have body images in line with their actual BMI, for many people they are not, and this may be where part of the problem lies,” said Regina Corso, vice president of Harris Poll Solutions. “If they do not recognize the problem or don’t recognize the severity of the problem, they are less likely to do something about it.”
And that means that obesity may be becoming the new norm, raising the specter of increasing rates of health threats such as diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers.
“I think too many people are unsure of what they should actually weigh,” said Keri Gans, a registered dietitian and spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. “For many, they have grown up in a culture were most people are overweight and that is the norm, or they have been surrounded by too many celebrities and fashion in the media and think very thin is the norm.”
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 34 percent of adults aged 20 and older are obese, and 34 percent are overweight. Among children, 18 percent of teens aged 12 to 19 are obese, 20 percent of children aged 6 to 11 are obese, as are 10 percent of kids aged 2 to 5.
Most respondents to the poll who felt they were heavier than they should be blamed sloth, rather than poor eating habits, for their predicament.
“In the mindset of most Americans, they’re not looking at this as a food problem as much as an exercise problem,” Corso said.
According to the poll, 52 percent of overweight people and 75 percent of both the obese and morbidly obese felt they didn’t exercise enough.
“We’re seeing the couch potato stigma [syndrome],” Corso said. “Three out of five Americans overall are saying they don’t exercise as much as they should.”
Added Gans: “It is sad that 59 percent of people who responded know they should be getting more exercise but yet aren’t. Maybe they set the bar too high and forget that simply walking counts as exercise.”
Food appeared to be a lesser culprit than lack of exercise in people’s minds, with 36 percent of overweight respondents, 48 percent of obese respondents and 27 percent of those morbidly obese feeling they ate more than they “should in general.”
A third of overweight people, 55 percent of obese people and 59 percent of morbidly obese people felt they ate too much of the wrong types of food.
As for weight-loss interventions, the respondents deemed surgery the most effective method, followed by prescription drugs, then drugs and diet-food supplements obtained over-the-counter.
About half felt that procedures such as gastric bypass and stomach stapling were either very or fairly effective in helping people shrink their girth. Faith in these remedies seemed similar, regardless of the respondents’ weight.
“Americans like the quick fix and that’s what they think the surgery is even though there are so many other things” that work, Corso said. “And so many people reverse their own surgery. These numbers are staggering.”
Dr. Mitchell Roslin, chief of obesity surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, noted that “when [Dr. Everett Coop, surgeon general in the 1980s] wrote ‘Shape Up America,’ he said the biggest health problem facing America was not AIDS, not cancer, it’s obesity and a sedentary lifestyle. Since then … we’ve seen nothing but a rise in obesity despite all of these efforts that have gone on now since the 1980s.”
“The American public knows this but it’s hard and it’s something that they’re not quite ready to do,” Corso added. “This wake-up call still isn’t ringing as loudly as it could.”
The poll included 2,418 adults (aged 18 and over) who were surveyed online between Aug. 17 and 19.

Are Homeopathic Drops A Scam?

October 19th, 2010



When Dr. Simeons created the HCG protocol it was only available in injection form, often given intramuscular which was more painful and made the diet less appealing. Now with new innovation you can buy HCG in homeopathic form to be taken sublingually. This makes it more main stream, also making it cheaper and easier for more people to enjoy in the miracle and benefits of the HCG diet.
That being said not all homeopathic drops are the same. They range in potency and ingredients; you also have some homeopathic drops that use alcohol as it solution base and others that use colloidal mineral water as its base. Some of the things you need to watch out for when buying homeopathic HCG is potency and alcohol base solutions. The potency in homeopathic HCG can range greatly. When looking at the ingredients you are looking for, HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) 3x. It is important that it states Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. That way you know you are getting the really HCG hormone. When the ingredients start with 3x it’s the most potent form of homeopathic HCG you can find. Basically it is breaking down the dilution rate for you and because HCG starts out very potent in a freeze dried powder, they dilute it in to a solution to be used for sublingual use. Alcohol is well known for helping absorption rate with most medications, unfortunately when it comes to HCG it is known to kill the hormone, thus making it less potent and less effective. It is important to have it in a colloidal mineral base instead to preserve the HCG and help you to receive the best results.
Here at HCG Renew our homeopathic drops contain the highest potency of HCG(Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) 3x, 6x, 12x, 30x and 60x in colloidal mineral water base. We do not use alcohol. We also added vitamin B12 to help increase energy while on the diet. We also added Mag-Phos cell salts- To prevent any muscle cramping which some have stated was a side effect while on the 500 calorie diet. As well as Nat-Phos cell salts- To counteract two other side effects of the diet, Nat-Phos acts as a mild laxative to prevent constipation and it also promotes in the assimilation of fat deposits to further amplify the results you get from using our drops vs. others. We strive to make your experience the best with the HCG diet and provide the best combination of ingredients to help you achieve your goals.
All though you want to find the best ingredients in your homeopathic drops, the best product with bad coaching can equal failure. And in the same sense, the best coaching with a bad product can equal failure as well. We are proud to be able to provide you with the best of both. We offer you the best product as well as the best coaching available. We have done countless hours of research and deep studied into Dr. Simeon protocol and know that with his experience and decades of research that he has done, you will receive the best results when following strictly to his protocol. Here at HCG Renew not only are we all students and coaches of the Dr. Simeons protocol, but we have also achieved success with our own weight loss using the HCG diet along with the Dr. Simeons program to reach our goals. We believe that by example we can help our customers regain control of their weight and renew their life.
