Dr. Simeons' research not only includes his scientific discoveries, but also discusses the history of obesity. His research goes back to Neolithic times, when man would eat only when he was hungry, and then, only enough to eliminate hunger pains. As prosperity has emerged in modern society however, eating is no longer a physical requirement, but has evolved into a social, mental, and even emotional experience, not without consequences. Dr. Simeons states that:
The institution of regular meals meant that man had to eat more than his body required at the moment of eating so as to tide him over until the next meal. Food rendered easily digestible suddenly flooded his body with nourishment of which he was in no need at the moment. Somehow, somewhere this surplus had to be stored.
As humans have evolved, diet patterns have also, but human bodies have not necessarily evolved simultaneously. With more and more calories entering the body, fat is stored instead of processed, resulting in excess fat and obesity. When taking the HCG Platinum drops and following Dr. Simeons diet, the 500 calories a day is sufficient for all patients. Dr. Simeons states:
Just as the daily dose of HCG is the same in all cases, so the same diet proves to be satisfactory for a small elderly lady of leisure or a hard working muscular giant. Under the effect of HCG the obese body is always able to obtain all the Calories it needs from the abnormal fat deposits, regardless of whether it uses up to 1500 or 4000 per day. It must be made very clear to the patient that he is living to a far greater extent on the fat which he is losing than on what he eats.
Luckily, weight-loss research has evolved along with eating trends. HCG Platinum allows dieter's to make up for over-eating habits, lack of exercise, or even genetic fat storage tendencies when coupled with Dr. Simeons' 500 calorie diet.
Although dieter's would lose weight when eating 500 calories daily without the HCG Platinum formula, HCG Platinum allows the body to lose the weight from the stored or excess fat. Without the HCG hormone, the body would believe it was in starvation mode, and cling to the excess fat rather than burning it as an energy source, which is what the HCG Platinum formula allows it to do. With HCG Platinum, the 500 calorie diet is not only healthy; it is also effective for those who desire to lose weight.
