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
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
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.Read more ›
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'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!
