During the 1950’s, Dr. Simeons, a British endocrinologist, claimed to have found the ultimate weight loss cure that will once and for all end obesity in patients. More than 30 years later, author Kevin Trudeau, who is known for his infomercial appearances, seeks to resurrect Simeons’ findings. According to Trudeau, Simeons’ weight loss cure has been kept a secret for over 30 years. This is because the weight loss industry is simply too profitable – with food, drug and medical companies making large profits from the countless individuals who want to lose weight. This is the idea behind Trudeau’s book, “The Weight Loss Cure ‘They’ Don’t Want You to Know About”.
The Weight Loss Cure delivers a grand promise: if you follow the diet, you can lose about a pound a day. This means that if you follow the diet for 30 days, you would have lost a total of 30 pounds after a month. The best part is that you get to lose this weight without feeling hungry, undergoing restrictive diets, exercising to the bone or depriving yourself of your favorite foods. Instead, the diet requires you to go through a series of cleanses while receiving supplements and hormone injections.
Like many diets, the Weight Loss Cure consists of several phases. In the first phase, you need to follow a diet in which only organic foods are allowed. This phase also requires you to undergo liver detoxes and colonics in order to rid your body of toxins, in preparation for weight loss. HCG hormonal injections begin during the second phase. This is also the phase where you need to stick to a low-calorie diet. During the third phase, the hormonal injections are stopped but the organic diet continues. The last phase involves liver and kidney cleanses, as well as the removal of heavy metals, parasites and other toxins from the body.
The Weight Loss Cure diet emphasizes the importance of drinking at least eight glasses of water a day as well as eating a substantial breakfast while fasting after 6 p.pm. Some of the whole, organic foods that are recommended are:
- Organic meat
- Fish and poultry
- Apple cider vinegar
- Raw nuts
- Vegetables and fruits
What to Get Excited About
If you’re trying to lose weight then some of the concepts presented by the Weight Loss Cure may make sense. For instance, eating a complete breakfast will help you reduce hunger pangs throughout the rest of the entire day. Adding plenty of organic foods to your diet can also help you start on your way to healthier eating habits.
Things to Consider
Aside from the fact that Trudeau lacks any credentials in health, medicine or nutrition, the fact that he has a history in fraud should be enough to raise doubt if you are looking to try the diet. The HCG hormones that the diet recommends are also not approved by the FDA and injections should only be done under medical supervision.
As a whole, the risks of the Weight Loss Cure far outweighs the possible benefits that the diet may bring. Aside from the extreme process of HCG injections and colonics, the diet does not take into account that different individuals have different weight loss needs.
