Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dr. A.T.W. Simeons was a British doctor who spent most of his life abroad helping combat disease and obesity. He studied medicine in Germany and Switzerland, graduating with highest honors, then beginning his practice in Germany. Later, after advanced studies in tropical diseases, he worked first in Africa, and then in India for eighteen years. During this time, Dr. Simeons was a pioneer in the treatment of malaria, receiving honors for his achievements and discoveries, including the Red Cross Order of Merit. He also made important contributions to combating bubonic plague and was an innovator in leprosy control. It was also in India that Dr. Simeons first observed the effects of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) on obesity and realized its importance. Dr. Simeons later settled in Rome, where he practiced medicine at the Salavator Mundi International Hospital, and continued his studies on the effects of HCG in combating obesity. He published several articles about his research in various journals before completing this manuscript, which contains his revolutionary HCG protocol and diet. Prior to the creation of Pounds & Inches, only those who could afford to fly to Rome and spend weeks in Dr. Simeon’s clinic could profit from his research. Today, using Pounds & Inches, you can reap the benefits of Dr. Simeon’s discoveries about HCG and its effect on obesity, and join the thousands who have achieved lasting success using the original HCG diet protocol contained in Pounds & Inches.

Pounds and Inches-A New Approach to Obesity
by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons is a revolutionary concept
which covers eating mechanisms and the process
of dispelling abnormal fat from the body.
Dr.Simeons begins by explaining how pre-Neolithic
humans ate only when hungry. Much of the food
was raw and unrefined like fruits, veggies, nuts
and seeds.

The whole structure of the human digestive system
is very much like a rat or pig. The process of eating
is adjusted to continuous nibbling on tidbits rather
than gorging on lavish meals and huge portions
of food. The modern way of eating burdens the
digestive system according to Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.

Dr. Simeones explains that there are three kinds
of fat. Structural fat is needed to cushion
vital organs; otherwise, a tap to the stomach
could kill you. Normal fat reserves are localized
throughout the body on every limb. Abnormal fat
is locked away in fixed deposits. This fat is the
most difficult to shed for dieters everywhere.
Abnormal fat is responsible for morbid obesity.

Historically, various theoretical notions have
failed in the actual execution of weight loss
attempts. Thyroid modulation deals with normal fat
accumulation not abnormal deposits. Dr. Simeones
found that there is no evidence to suggest that
excess adrenalcortical activity occurs in
obese patients.

Dr. Simeons explains that there are three theories
of obesity. The first is that fat banking capacity
is low at birth. This explains why siblings
who eat the same food at the table have vastly
different weight experiences during life. Some get
fat while others do not.

Great book. I've heard a lot about this diet and once I read the book it made much more sense. Much better then the downloads you can on internet that don't always include all the text.

20 of 22 people found the following review helpful By Ben Franklin on April 25, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book involves the memoirs of the pioneering work of using a highly precise and sophisticated 500 calorie diet and the use of the HCG hormone, to shift the body into burning fat rather than abnormally storing it, which is the obsity condition and has nothing to do with how much body fat a person carries. In theory even an underweight person can have "obesity."

The book is amazingly 40 years old. Therapy was by injection, but today there is HCG in an oral form.

The online free versions of this book is OK, but for the little money it costs, this book is a better deal. The print is easier to read.

Fascinating book. Anyone who criticises it must have a personality disorder. It is the only real source of information on this. Other books simply rip you off by reinventing the wheel or worse yet will give you a "defective" proverbial wheel that will fall off at 80 mph :-)

It is a protocol and therapy - not a "diet" like some books treat it - with recipes for disaster, to boot.

I was told to read this book because the detils are from the creator himself- I agree I read others that gave me recipes and such for foods that are not on the diet.
I'm sure glad I listened to that advice, doing this diet correctly is key. I am on day 28 and 25lbs lighter. I will put in the effort to see the results and I have never had results this quickly!

This book was a great tool in assisting me as I underwent the HCG diet. I was able to find answers to my questions and also exactly what the protocol was for following the HCG diet as Dr. Simeons created it. I highly recommend this book to all those who are considering using HCG and even for those who have already gone on the diet/lifestyle change HCG brings about.
