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'.

I believe that weight loss is a journey. There are those who simply don't know enough about how their bodies work to complete this protocol. Please do some research. Those individuals may not feel comfortable with this approach. I, on the other hand, have read nutrition books by Dr. Barry Sears, Dr. Perricone and tons of others. I know that refined, processed foods wreak havoc in my body.

I am very surprised by the negative reviews of Trudeau's book. Amazon's suggested tags have words like "fraud" although this book has mostly positive reviews. I have read Dr. Simeons' original manuscript and I'm currently taking HCG that I received from a licensed physician. IT WORKS! I feel great! I lost 20 lbs in 3 weeks. I've got 3 weeks to go. I would also recommend this book because it's more streamlined than Trudeau's. I think Trudeau's book is helpful because of the in-depth analysis of dangerous toxins in our body. It's not about weight loss but rather fat loss! I've lost inches and reshaped my body. I found a doctor that prescribes HCG in Aurora, IL. I live about 40 minutes away. I only had to see him twice. Once for a consultation and then for a two week follow-up. I know that everyone isn't comfortable with the idea of self-injections. Trust me...I'd take this over popping pills anytime. It's quick and painless. I took Phentermine years ago which is FDA approved. It was prescribed by my primary care physician. The experience is like night and day. I had insomnia, dry mouth, jitters, etc. It was awful and I loss the wrong type of fat. My face was drawn and I looked tired. I have had absolutely NO side effects with HCG!

My HCG doctor was referred by a colonic therapist I found online. Colonics are important too but not necessary for success.

Poorly edited book. A lot of good information, but hard to find and piece it together. There is a section in front that the author has written and Dr. Simeon's manuscript is in the back. If using this book you MUST read Simeon's entire manuscript and make notes or you will NOT do the diet correctly. The author's section leaves out important information on how to start the diet. There should be a sheet showing step by step diet by days, (i.e. Days 1-2 Gorge with HCG, Days 3-40 500 cal diet with HCG, Days 41-43 500 cal diet, NO HCG to finish), but there is not. There is no mention of gorging and using HCG in the author's Phase 2 section, just the 500 calorie diet with a gorge sample menu stuck in a few pages later, with no instructions on when/how this should be used. It even says that their Phase 2 section is a copy of Simeon's manuscript, but they clearly forgot to include the gorge information, which is the first 2 days of the diet and Simeon says is very important. This informtaion is in Simeon's manuscript directly in front of the 500 cal diet section. The author's section says nothing about how long you should stay on the diet. You have to read in the Phase 3 section to find out it is 40 days, or refer back to Simeon's manuscript to find out you can do 26 days (23 days of HCG, 3 off HCG at the end) if you want and not 43 (40 days HCG, 3 off HCG at the end). The author's section does not include that you must finish with 3 days of 500 cal with no HCG, which is very important to maintaining the new weight. You have go to Simeon's manuscript to find that out. I was very lucky to know someone already doing the diet, which made me aware of ommissions in this book, and would have done it wrong if just following their section of the book.Read more ›

I can hardly believe I made it through 3 rounds without having this book! I strongly suggest it if you are on the protocol and for life after the protocol! Thank you, Linda Prinster, for taking the time to share and put into words all the helps! I would love to meet you someday! I just reached 100 pounds lost!

The diet itself is amazing and easy, but to find a guide to make it even easier....incredible. The hints and charts in the guide saved time and frustration. I would suggest this guide for anyone even thinking about trying the HCG, because it not only explains everything in a way that anyone can understand, but it also goes a little further and tells you what may or may not be okay. The diet made my life better and the guide made my life easier! I lost 25 pounds on the HCG diet and am getting ready to start a 2nd round and the guide will be at my side the entire time! BUY IT!

I am on my second session of HCG shots on the Simeons Protocol. I lost 30 pounds first session and need to lose 20 more. I'm sorry I didn't have this guide the first session - it is EXTREMELY helpful. In addition to explaining everything in easy-to-understand detail, this book clarifys the foods you can eat during the 3-6 weeks following the shots (Simeons was a bit vague regarding Sugars and Starches). The book is worth twice the price.

This guide was an incredible help to me while I was going through the protocol. It has charts, instructions, guidelines, lists of what to buy and where to buy them, listings of very helpful websites, plus so much more. It also has the complete manuscript of Dr. Simeon's Pounds and Inches which you must have a copy of if you plan to do this protocol. It is very much worth the money. I even bought a second one for my doctor, who knew nothing about this diet. I would highly recommend this book.
