However, I'm sort of miffed right now. Simeons' Hcg protocol saved my life. I'm not being hyperbolic. At 212 lb. on a 5'1" frame, I was no longer participating in my life and was ready to check out. I hurt all the time, I couldn't do anything I wanted to do, I was an embarrassment to myself and my family. No matter how hard I tried to reframe that, for years, it was just the truth.
I tried EVERYTHING conventional wisdom says MUST ALWAYS work. It did not. I fell for every nonsensical BS weight loss gimmick when everything else failed. That's why there is $58 BILLION dollar weight loss industry, you know...because what 'they say' works, doesn't. If it did, we'd all do it. We go for the stupid 'easy pill' because we've tried working our ass off and starving ourselves and that didn't work, so why not? We are willing to try anything. We are stilling ducks.
So, willing to try anything, I tried Hcg. AND IT WORKED!
At the time, I couldn't afford the $3,000-$6,000 that doctors were charging to do this. I ordered prescription strength online and did it myself. Once I knew that not only did it work, but I was still healthy (actually much healthier) and it was easy to keep off, I approached a doctor to see if he would offer it for a more reasonable price than what others were charging. Some people NEED medical monitoring and some people NEED support.
But some people don't. And some people may be able to scrape up the $200-$300 it costs to do it alone, but not 5 times that amount or more. Thus, it is important that Hcg remain available to those that need it.
