About the Author
My name is Linda Prinster. At the time of experiencing Dr. Simeons HCG protocol and writing this book, I am a 44 year old mother of 8 children ranging from 21 years old to 1 year old. I have been married for 23 years to the same man and, yes, all of the children are 'our' children. I have struggled with weight my entire life. I am one of the strong, according to Dr. Simeons, as I have always known that while maintaining a specific, healthy weight was a struggle for my body, the struggle was not caused by what I improperly did or what I improperly ate. Although I would never be classified as obese on a weight chart, I did indeed have most or all of the 'signs and symptoms of obesity' Dr. Simeons so clearly defines. I have dieted too many times to count over the years; some worked at least temporarily (NutriSystem worked until the formula was changed to not be such a high protein mix of nutrients; Atkins worked for weight loss, but the return of virtually any carbohydrates brought the slow return of the weight; diet pills made weight loss possible as long as I was taking the pills, but the side effects can be serious); some didn't work at all (Weight Watchers, 'cutting back and exercising more', walking, etc.). My qualifications in writing this guide include a PMP certification and significant consulting experience in management, research and documentation, and weight loss. Additionally, I owned and ran a 30 minute workout franchise for about 2 years before having my last 2 children within a short period. During this time, I ran Biggest Loser Contests and consulted many individuals - oh, how I wish I would have known about Dr. Simeons and HCG then. Finally, I personally experienced great results on Dr. Simeons Protocol and have consulted with many, many individuals on the protocol. To date, every single participant has had extraordinary success in both losing the weight, and even more importantly, keeping it off. I have lost slightly over 30 pounds; and I am able to eat far more now, and not gain weight, than I ever could in the past. As far as reshaping, HCG does it - I weigh 8-10 pounds more than I have in the past, but am comfortably in a size 8 for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. HCG has performed better than I could have ever hoped for. For some, including me, this is 'the cure'.
