HCG Diet – Phase 4
When you start this phase it will be the first day of the rest of your life. It will be a whole new life. Your life now will be different than before. Your hunger will be normalized and will no longer be intense and constant. You will eat normal, small amounts of food and be perfectly satisfied and full. You will no longer have uncontrollable urges and desires to eat. You will no longer have food cravings, causing you to eat when you are not hungry. Your metabolism will be high so you easily burn for fuel the food you consume. You will not gain any more weight. Your body will no longer abnormally store fat in the secure problem area fat deposits around your body. Your energy levels will be high. You will sleep deeply and soundly. Your skin, hair, nails, and eyes will be youthful and radiant, glowing with vibrant health. You will be happy and no longer suffer from depression, stress, or anxiety. You will find yourself more energetic, doing things and exercising more than you ever imagined. You will be more social and your relationships with other people will be better.
Up until now you have been a slave to food. You’ve been an addict, programmed by the food industry to be a compulsive overeater. You were plagued with a low metabolism, fatigue, and constant and intense hunger. You also developed many dangerous habits that helped create the weight problem you have had to endure. Those days are gone and the bright, sunny, beautiful days are now your present and future.
Phase 4 is for the rest of your life. This phase will consist of some basic and easy to follow dos and don’ts that will become your new, exciting habits. These new success habits will replace some of your old failure habits. These new healthy habits will begin to replace many of your old unhealthy habits. These new habits will give you a feeling of empowerment; they will make you feel in control; they will give you confidence, peace, and security.
Remember who the enemy is. The food companies, including fast food, regional and national chain restaurants, and all manufacturers and sellers of everything we eat are doing everything in their power, through deceptive advertising and other coercive techniques to get you to buy their food or eat in their restaurants. Remember too that they are purposely creating and making food that will get you chemically and physically addicted, increase your appetite, and make you fat. They are the enemy.
The simplest rule to follow is to eat anything you want, as much as you want, as often as you want. The only caveat is only eat 100% organic food. If you do this you will never be consuming all of the things that are designed to overtax your hypothalamus and create the conditions of obesity. In real life, in the real world, eating only 100% organic food can be next to impossible. Basically then, what you work to achieve is to avoid, as best you can, the man-made ingredients that cause obesity. Remember, obesity and weight gain is generally not caused by calories, fat, simple or complex carbohydrates, foods with a high glycemic index rate, or sodium. Obesity and weight gain is caused by the man-made ingredients, chemicals, and food processing techniques employed in the growing, producing, and manufacturing of food. To keep the weight off permanently, and to achieve vibrant dynamic health, here is a list of dos and don’ts:
1. Eat only 100% organic food. Although this is the ideal scene, in real life this can be next to impossible. Do the best you can. You don’t have to count calories or be concerned with fat, carbohydrates, protein, or sodium. As we’ve learned so far, real food without man-made chemical ingredients and food processing techniques, that are not super highly refined, do not create the conditions for obesity. As you go throughout your life following this rule will not only prevent weight gain, and give you dynamic, vibrant health, it will also allow you to fully indulge in the most delicious food without deprivation.
2. No “brand name” food. The rule here is not to eat food produced by publicly traded corporations. Remember, large publicly traded food companies are the enemy. They are producing food that is genetically modified, loaded with chemicals, growth hormone, drugs, trans fats, and other ingredients specifically and purposely created to increase your appetite, get you chemically addicted to the food, and make you fat. You cannot trust any of the mass-produced food they sell. They are using deceptive advertising techniques and sophisticated brainwashing techniques in their advertising to create mental triggers that cause us to have compulsive urges and cravings for their food. Staying away from any brand name heavily advertised product is the best course of action. Knowing that every publicly traded large food company will use every deceitful and misleading technique, and fancy food label, to get us to buy their product and make us fat is reason enough to avoid supporting them by never buying their products.
3. No fast food, regional or national chain restaurants. This is the same as the previous rule. Virtually all the food available from regional and national restaurant chains and fast food companies is specifically designed to increase appetite, get us chemically addicted to the food, and make us fat. This is a new phenomenon. It did not exist in Simeons’ day. If you go back to eating food from these unscrupulous companies you will get fat again.
4. Do a Candida cleanse. In Simeons’ day Candida yeast overgrowth was almost nonexistent. Today, over 80% of the U.S. population has some degree of Candida yeast overgrowth. This condition creates massive food cravings, gas and bloating, depression, increased hunger, poor digestion, and fatigue. In order to make your weight loss permanent and to ensure no food cravings or feelings of deprivation, it is vital that you do a Candida cleanse as soon as possible. A good beginner cleanse is the ThreeLac program, available at www.123candida.com. The most complete and powerful Candida cleanse is the LifeForce Program available at www.lifeforeeplan.com. There are many other Candida cleanse and programs available. Consult with a local licensed health care practitioner who uses non-drug and non-surgical methods to cure and treat disease. A list is available at www.naturalcures.com.
5. Clean your colon. Hopefully, you have done this step in Phase 1. Since it is impossible for you to eat perfectly for the rest of your life, it is necessary for you to clean your colon at least once per year. I generally do some form of colon cleanse three to four times per year. Good colon cleanses include a series of five to fifteen colonies in a thirty-day period. Other good colon cleanses can be found at www.drnatura.com, www.tryalmightycleanse.com, www.pbiv.com, www.qnlabs.com, and www.dr-schulze.com.
6. Do a liver cleanse. Cleansing the liver will dramatically improve digestion, increase metabolism, and make permanent weight loss very easy. Several liver cleanse products and programs can be found at www.drnatura.com, www.liverdoctor.com, www.dr-schulze.com, and http://www.qnlabs.com.
7. Drink one-half to one gallon of pure water daily. This is vital to keep the cells hydrated and continually flush toxins from the body. Ideally, drink water with coral calcium sachets.
8. Do a parasite cleanse. After you have done a colon cleanse and a liver cleanse, it is wise to use a parasite cleanse product or program In addition to promoting long-term weight regulation, the benefits also include dramatic increase in energy and alleviating of a multitude of medical symptoms and conditions. It has been shown that a majority of people have parasites which are partially responsible for the development of many degenerative diseases. For a list of recommended parasite cleanse products and programs go to www.naturalcures.com, www.qnlabs.com, www.drnatura.com, www.drstockwell.com, and http://www.paradevices.com.
9. Do a heavy metal cleanse. The best known method is intravenous chelation performed by a licensed health care practitioner. Products that can be taken at home that help remove and help the body cleanse heavy metals can be found at www.rxvitamins.com, www.advancedbionutritionals.com, www.scienceformulas.com, www.qnlabs.com, and www.drnatura.com.
10. Walk for one hour, outside, every day.
11. Eat! Always eat breakfast, eat something six times per day, and finish your dinner three and one-half hours before you go to bed. Avoid eating a huge meal as this overtaxes the hypothalamus.
12. Eat protein before bed. On occasion eat 100 grams of organic beef, veal, chicken, turkey, or fish right before bed.
13. Take Acetyl L-Carnitine. This helps turn fat into fuel.
14. Eat a minimum of one organic apple every day.
15. Eat organic grapefruits as you desire.
16. Have a big salad with lunch and dinner (made with organic ingredients).
17. Add organic hot peppers and cinnamon as often as possible.
18. Use organic virgin coconut oil as often as possible.
19. Use organic raw apple cider vinegar as often as possible.
20. Sleep eight hours per night; ideally, between 10:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m.
21. Drink organic Yerba Mate tea, chamomile tea, Wu Long tea, and green tea liberally.
22. Every day take a whole food supplement, probiotics, Vitamin E, and krill oil.
23. Use stevia as your sweetener of choice.
24. Get sun on a regular basis.
25. Use an infrared or conventional sauna as often as possible.
26. Use a rebounder as often as possible.
27. Do yoga as often as possible.
28. Do resistance training, such as weight lifting, as often as possible.
29. Take digestive enzymes with food.
30. Take AlphaCalm as needed.
31. Listen to stress reducing CDs often.
32. Reduce exposure to florescent lights and air conditioning.
33. Limit ice cold drinks.
34. Get massages often.
35. Use a Q-Link, E-Pendant, and/or Biopro for neutralizing electromagnetic chaos.
36. Limit carbonated drinks.
37. Limit non-prescription, over-the-counter, and prescription drug use.
38. Use deep breathing techniques on a regular basis.
The following items must be avoided at all costs as they will quickly and easily make you gain weight:
39. No super highly refined sugars. These include high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sucrose, and dextrose.
40. No genetically modified food. If it doesn’t say 100% organic, it is probably genetically modified.
41. No artificial sweeteners. This includes NutraSweet, Splenda, aspartame, sucrolos, and others.
42. No trans fats. This includes hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils.
43. No monosodium glutamate.
44. No food with nitrites.
45. No meat, poultry, or dairy that is not 100% organic. All meat, poultry, and dairy that is not 100% organic is loaded with growth hormones, antibiotics, and other drugs. These absolutely cause weight gain and other physical and emotional problems.
46. No farm raised fish.
47. No propylene glycol or sodium laureth sulfate. Make sure your shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, soaps, lotions, and creams do not contain these deadly poisonous chemicals.
48. Do not use a microwave.
49. Drink fresh cantaloupe and watermelon juice. Juicing experts Jay Kordich and Jack LaLane suggest drinking freshly made juice from cantaloupes and watermelons can speed cleansing of toxins and promote weight loss. Use a Juiceman juicer or a Jack LaLane Power Juicer.
50. Do a full body fat cleanse. The best known cleanse that releases toxins from the fatty tissue in the body is called the Purification Program. I, and many of my friends, have done this program with spectacular results. Cleansing toxins out of the fatty tissue is vital in reducing or eliminating food cravings and urges.

This list may seem overwhelming and difficult to implement in real life. I can tell you it is relatively easy. The key is to shop in stores which carry the types of products that do not make you fat. Shop at your local farmers market, your local health food store, or stores such as Whole Foods, Wild Oats, or Trader Joe’s. You still must read the ingredient list on the label. I recently went into a major supermarket chain to do some investigating. I looked at mustard, ketchup, and bread. Every single jar of mustard had high fructose corn syrup in it! Every single bottle of ketchup had high fructose corn syrup in it! Most amazingly, every single loaf of bread had some kind of super highly refined processed sugar such as high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, dextrose, malto dextrose, honey, molasses, etc. This is why obesity is an epidemic today. I then went to Whole Foods. I easily found many brands of mustard, ketchup, and bread that did not have any high fructose corn syrup or any other super refined highly processed sugars. You see, it’s not that mustard, ketchup, bread, or any other type of food is fattening, it is the ingredients and food processing techniques of that food that make it fattening! Understanding this means you can eat virtually any kind of food you want and not gain weight. You can still eat mashed potatoes and gravy, cheeseburgers, French fries, pizza, pasta, cheese, butter, eggs, pot roast, cake, cookies, ice cream, etc. The key is reading the ingredient list. All of these foods are available without the forbidden fat inducing manmade ingredients. They are all available with 100% organic whole food, non-refined, real ingredients as nature intended. This kind of food actually tastes much better, is more filling, and much more satisfying than the man-made mass-produced counterparts that are sold by the large publicly traded international food conglomerates.
It is impossible for the average person to eat this way all the time. This is why doing a colon cleanse, liver cleanse, heavy metal cleanse, and parasite cleanse once or more per year is strongly suggested. The Candida cleanse usually only needs to be done once. Always consult a licensed health care practitioner before and during your cleanses.
As you can see, today’s environment is quite different than in the 1950s and 1960s when Simeons was treating patients. Today, virtually everything we eat, combined with our sedentary lifestyle, is working perfectly to make us fat. There are more causes for obesity today than ever before. Now that you know the causes you can avoid them in the future. Avoiding the causes of obesity is a decision.
People ask me if they can still eat the foods they are accustom to. The answer is absolutely yes, but you must change brands! If you like Oreo cookies change to another brand such as Paul Newman organic cookies that are almost identical to Oreos. The Oreos are loaded with trans fats and super highly refined sugars and ingredients that make you fat. Paul Newman’s cookies have no trans fats, organic ingredients, and no super highly refined sugars and ingredients. They taste better, and are more filling; they do not give you the sugar crash and increased hunger associated with Oreos. In normal amounts they will not make you fat.
If you have successfully completed Phases 1, 2, and 3, implementing the suggestions in Phase 4 should be easy. You should have renewed energy, enthusiasm, and confidence for keeping the weight off permanently. As you read this, you probably have not started “the weight loss protocol” yet. It may seem hard to do. I can assure you that the protocol outlined in Phases 1, 2, 3 and 4 will be easy and enjoyable.
When I first learned of the Simeons “weight loss cure protocol” I thought it was very strict and would be very hard to follow. I was fearful that I would have to use superhuman willpower to stay on the protocol. I believed I would be hungry, tired, grumpy, and feeling deprived throughout the course of treatment. I believed I would be giving up all the pleasures of eating. This fear made me come up with every excuse to delay starting “the weight loss cure protocol.” It took over one year before I actually got started. I can tell you all of my fears and apprehension was totally unjustified. I was never hungry, I had tons of energy, my disposition was bright and pleasant, I did not have to use any willpower, and my motivation to stick with the protocol was very high. I, like every other patient I talked to, found this approach to obesity very easy to do. I only wish I had done it a year earlier. I encourage you to do this protocol exactly as Simeons outlined it.
At this point there are several items I want to address and clarify. The next chapter is entitled “Frequently Asked Questions.” It is important that you read everything in that chapter as well as everything in this entire book. Many important and vital questions and issues must be handled before you start “the weight loss cure protocol.” You may be skeptical or apprehensive of Simeons’ approach to obesity. There are many groups, associations, government agencies, companies, alleged watchdog groups, alleged consumer advocacy groups, and doctors who are critical of Simeons’ method. We are tapping into the $150 billion per year diet and weight loss industry. The money at stake is so big that I am sure the news media, the American Medical Association, the FDA, the FTC, state attorneys general, and other groups will do everything in their power to debunk and discredit me, this book, and Dr. Simeons’ work.
Remember, this approach has passed the test of time It has been successfully used for over thirty years. Hundreds of thousands of patients have achieved successful results. There is not one known patient who has had any serious negative effects scientific research is overwhelmingly conclusive showing the effectiveness and safety of this protocol. The clinical trials, double-blind studies, and thousands of doctors, and patients’ observations over the last thirty years prove conclusively that this protocol is absolutely, completely safe, and absolutely works! The hundreds of thousands of patients, including members of royal families, celebrities, and the super wealthy, who have used this protocol safely achieving spectacular results, cannot all be wrong! Will you be the next success story who says, “The Simeons “weight loss cure protocol” absolutely, 100%, works. It’s easy and safe. I should know, because I used it myself!”
