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.

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. The second reason is the
lowering of a previously normal fat banking activity.
The third reason is analogous to the poor person
getting fat and rich. While poor, he can't afford
to luxuriate on processed foods. A rich person tends
to eat more refined foods and larger portions.
On a small daily dose of HCG
( Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin), patients could
subsist on 500 calories a day and lose a pound a day
under strict medical supervision. Patients who need
to lose 15 pounds or less require 26 days treatment
and daily injections of HCG for 23 days. HCG puts
abnormal fat back into circulation-something that
many diets fail to do. Patients with over 15 pounds
to lose can take 40 HCG injections in the first round.
Limiting HCG injections to 40 prevents developing
an immunity to the HCG injections.
Patients with one hundred or more pounds to lose
have multiple administrations of HCG at 40 doses
of injections for each administration. Some exercise
during treatment facilitates weight loss and
muscle toning. Again, strict medical supervision is
required- especially for morbidly obese patients.
The HCG injections and diet protocol may not be
indicated for patients with cardiovascular
or gallbladder problems. Contraindications
exist for pregnant patients as well. That's
why strict medical supervision is required by
Pounds and Inches-A New Approach to Obesity is
a wonderful medical resource on weight management
under the strictest medical supervision with a
carefully crafted regimen of HCG injections, carefully
portioned diets and strict clinical supervision every
step of the way. Dr. Simeons is a pioneer in the study
of body metabolic systems.
He discovered the use of injectable atebrin for malaria
for which he was awarded a Red Cross Order of Merit,
and also a new method of staining malaria parasites
now known as "Simeons' stain." 1)
In addition, Dr. Simeones made historic contributions
in the treatment of the bubonic plague and leprosy.

It is what it is... Go through it!
Fits to all: to one that only need to loose around 10 to 20 pounds and to others like me that need to loose from 80 to 100 pounds...
I am in my 37th day and 32 pounds are nicely gone... And I feel great!!!
My advice to you is: read the book first. Get well educated before you start, it really keeps you on track.
