  • Check out this intro to the Pounds and Inches book by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons!

    Dr. Simeons wrote the book on the HCG Weight Loss Diet, literally. And basically what he was trying to do when he came up with this diet, is to find a cure for obesity. He developed the HCG Diet Protocol from his own theories and clinical trials.

    From those theories and trials came the book... "Pounds and Inches - A New Approach To Obesity"

    I wanted to share with you what Dr. Simeons says to introduce readers to his book and explain what the book is all about. Keep in mind that this is pretty long for 1 blog post, so I am breaking it up into 3 different parts. Today I will be giving you part 1.

    Pounds and Inches: A New Approach To Obesity

    Dr. A.T.W. Simeons writes...

    "This book discusses a new interpretation of the nature of obesity, and while it does not advocate yet another fancy slimming diet it does describe a method of treatment which has grown out of theoretical considerations based on clinical observation.

    What I have to say is, in essence, the views distilled out of forty years of grappling with the fundamental problems of obesity, its causes, its symptoms, and its very nature.

    In these many years of specialized work, thousands of cases have passed through my hands and were carefully studied. Every new theory, every new method, every promising lead was considered, experimentally screened and critically evaluated as soon as it became known. But invariably the results were disappointing and lacking in uniformity.

    I felt that we were merely nibbling at the fringe of a great problem, as, indeed, do most serious students of overweight. We have grown pretty sure that the tendency to accumulate abnormal fat is a very definite metabolic disorder, much as is, for instance, diabetes. Yet the localization and the nature of this disorder remained a mystery. Every new approach seemed to lead into a blind alley, and though patients were told that they are fat because they eat too much, we believed that this is neither the whole truth nor the last word in
    the matter.

    Refusing to be side-tracked by an all too facile interpretation of obesity, I have always held that overeating is the result of the disorder, not its cause, and that we can make little headway until we can build for ourselves some sort of theoretical structure with which to explain the condition.

    Whether such a structure represents the truth is not important at this moment. What it must do is to give us an intellectually satisfying interpretation of what is happening in the obese body. It must also be able to withstand the onslaught of all hitherto known clinical facts and furnish a hard background against which the results of treatment can be accurately assessed."

    This begins to show you how much dedication and passion he had from the time he started doing these studies. I wish that I had that much passion for the things that I take on.
