METABOLE RESET YOUR FAT SET POINT PROGRAMME
We will take your hand in this exciting journey!
This really works, Dr Charl has lost 19kg and I have lost 12 kg and we keep it there, which is the most exciting and rewarding part of this programme!
Dr Charl did thorough research, studying all the scientific research of Dr A T W Simeons and Leslie Kenton’s book “New Curo Romano Weightloss Plan” to make sure that this programme is completely safe, as for us this is extremely important. I did not like the idea of injecting myself, and I wanted to know 100% that I will not jeopardize my health in any way by injecting the 125 International Units hCG per day.
"It is first about your health and then about your fat loss."
I have studied Leslie Kenton’s book “New Curo Romano Weightloss Plan” book over and over and chose the healthiest options of food possible, and have also simplified the diet for easy preparation.In her book there are recommendations of certain types of food that we do not agree with as healthy options – that is why I decided to summarize the programme in this way.
The most exciting part of this whole journey is learning to understand your body. You’ll be learning more about how to play by your own body’s rules – by testing important foods and paying attention to what it tells you and how it reacts to the new foods you trust. It’s all about becoming conscious of your body’s likes and dislikes.

In his longing to determine which organ, gland or system is responsible for body-fat control, Dr Simeons investigated every theory one by one. He worked out that obesity is not the result of a faulty mechanism in the sex glands, the adrenals, the pituitary or the thyroid.
What he found in relation to the thyroid in the process is valuable in its own right. Until this day doctors have gone on prescribing thyroid medication to overweight people on the assumption that, if a person is hypothyroid, it is necessary to give thyroid hormones to solve their weight problem. Unfortunately it doesn’t solve the problem. Yet the practice lives on!
Thyroid medication merely forces the body to consume its normal fat reserves, which are already depleted in obese patients, and then to break down structurally essential fat without touching the abnormal deposits.
In this way a patient may be brought to the brink of starvation in spite of having a hundred pounds of fat to spare. Thus any weight loss brought about by thyroid medication is always at the expense of fat of which the body is in dire need.
It was largely thanks to his years of work treating youths with Frolich’s syndrome in India that Dr Simeons was able to pinpoint that the body’s fat-control and fat-bank regulating system is located in an area of the brain known as the diencephalon.
A complex of structures including the thalamus, hypothalamus and pituitary, the diencephalon is probably the most sensitive and complex locus of control in the whole body. It governs the central nervous system, our hormones, emotions, stress and mood. It oversees our autonomic nervous system, heart rate, the urinary system, blood pressure, body temperature, fluid and electrolyte balance, and sexuality and sleep cycles.
Within the complex that forms the diencephalon, the hypothalamus is the most important gland when it comes to our experience of hunger and thirst. With the help of the other members of the diencephalon team, and the neural and hormonal connections they make with the rest of the body, the hypothalamus decides whether your body lays down more inessential fat as well as how and when it lets go of it.
Dr Simeons often compared the way the diencephalon deals with these issues with banking. It manages our fat deposits and withdrawals the way a bank manages our money. When you take in more caloric energy from your food than your body needs, at any moment, the surplus gets deposited in your ‘current account’. This current account holds normal fat deposits, from which your body can withdraw caloric energy when it needs to. But when, for any reason, fat deposits become more frequent than your withdrawals, a point is reached which goes beyond the diencephalon’s banking capacity to hold them in such a way that they continue to be accessible to you.
Just as a banker might suggest to a wealthy client that instead of accumulating a large and unmanageable current account he should invest his surplus capital, the body appears to establish a fixed deposit into which all surplus funds go but from which they can no longer be withdrawn by the procedure used in a current account. In this way the diencephalic ‘fat-bank’ frees itself from all work which goes beyond its normal banking capacity. The onset of obesity dates from the moment the diencephalon adopts this labour-saving ruse. Once a fixed deposit has been established the normal fat reserves are held at a minimum, while every available surplus is locked away in the fixed deposit and is there-fore taken out of normal circulation.
In people who have not inherited a tendency to obesity, as soon as the limit of their diencephalic fat-banking capacity is reached, the hypothalamus automatically curbs their appetite. They do not gain further weight. In those of us genetically predisposed to weight gain, this mechanism does not shut off appetite and limit further weight gain. In effect, it does not function in the way it was meant to do.
There appear to be three major factors, lying behind fat-banking errors through which obesity can become manifest.
- Genetic inheritance
- Functional disorders of the diencephalon
- Sudden excess exhausts fat bank
When reading this, you will understand the concept of this programme and why it is so successful. For more information – read Dr Simeons "Pounds and Inches" & Leslie Kenton’s New Cura Romana Weightloss plan.
Dr Simeons identified three kinds of fat in the human body. Two of them are normal and essential. The third is both inessential and abnormal.Only the inessential, abnormal fat creates obesity.
You can easily identify the difference when you look under a microscope, the first kind of normal fat – also known as visceral or structural fat – acts like upholstery or packing material to cushion our internal organs. It guards delicate structures such as the bladder, the spleen, the kidneys and the eyeballs by embedding them in soft elastic tissue. It also protects the coronary arteries, helps keep the skin firm and smooth and creates the vital cushion of firm fat under the heels of the feet without which we would be unable to walk without pain.
The second variety of normal fat is evenly distributed throughout the body. It provides an equally important reserve of energy so that, when there is a lack of food or a famine, we are able to call on this reserve to fuel our metabolism and keep us going.
Both these fats – structural and reserve – are important to the well-being of any man or woman. And even if your body chooses to store these essential fats to capacity, they will never make you obese. A healthy, well-fed body can function perfectly well for a limited time subsisting only on its normal fat reserves.
The third kind of fat is inessential and abnormal fat you see in the build-up of the adipose deposits which distort our bodies. It creates beer bellies on men and spreading waistlines, thighs and bottoms on women. It is these inessential fat deposits that result in obesity. Theoretically, one would expect this kind of fat to function as a ‘reserve of fuel’ just as normal fat does. The problem is that in people with a tendency to gain weight, this non-essential fat gets ‘locked away’ beyond reach so that, even when your body needs energy, you are unable to access it.
When we go on slimming diets, or on fasts, instead of being able to tap into this kind of inessential fat, we often shed our normal reserves as well. This is one reason yo-yo dieters suffer such frustration. What’s worse, if we stay on one of these diets, it can result in a loss of essential structural fat, undermining our health.
Dr Simeons says: “When an obese patient tries to reduce by starving himself, he will first lose his normal fat reserves. When these are exhausted he begins to burn up structural fat, and only as a last resort will the body yield its abnormal reserves, though by that time the patient usually feels so weak and hungry that the diet is abandoned. It is just for this reason that obese patients complain that when they diet they lose the wrong fat. They feel famished and tired and their face becomes drawn and haggard, but their belly, hips, thighs and upper arms show little improvement. The fat they have come to detest stays on and the fat they need to cover their bones gets less and less. Their skin wrinkles and they look old and miserable. And that is one of the most frustrating and depressing experiences a human being can have.”
hCG is an acronym for human chorionic gonadotrophin – a protein-based hormone often called the pregnancy hormone. It starts being made in a woman’s body seven or eight days after conception. hCG is the largest and most complex glycoprotein present in the human body. It holds some 300 amino acids in its molecular structure.
During pregnancy, the levels of hCG in her body increase week by week until, by the time she is three months pregnant, she is likely to have as many as 300,000 IU of this remarkable glycoprotein in every millilitre of her circulation blood supply. The presence of hCG in the body strongly affects the diencephalon’s fat-banking.
Pregnancy seems to be the only normal human condition in which the diencephalic fat banking capacity is unlimited. It is only during pregnancy that fixed fat deposits can be transferred back into the normal current account and freely drawn upon to make up for any nutritional deficit. During pregnancy, every ounce of reserve fat is placed at the disposal of the growing foetus. There is considerable evidence to suggest that it is the hCG produced in large quantities in the placenta which brings about this diencephalic change.
These health-enhancing effects are also experienced by men and woman on the programme:
- It helps regulate metabolism
- It brings greater emotional stability
- It improves sleep patterns
- It boosts mental clarity
- It enhances energy
- It brings relief from aches and pains
ALL GOOD NEWS
Not only does pure, natural hCG exert no negative side-effects on a pregnant woman’s body, it brings a number of medically positive side-effects. These are in addition to its role in helping prevent miscarriage. Probably the most important function hCG performs in a pregnant woman’s body is the following: it directs her body to draw upon her own fat stores as a means of feeding the placenta and fetus. The other interesting fact is that it is not only produced in the body of a pregnant woman, it is also found in small amounts within almost all normal human tissues – male or female, pregnant or not. Even plants and bacteria synthesize hCG.
When it comes to simple weight loss, Dr Simeons’ most important discovery was that, in the bodies of overweight men and women, small quantities of hCG were able to perform a feat similar to what it brings about in a pregnant woman’s body. It enables overweight bodies to access caloric energy from inessential adipose tissues and burn it up, producing life-energy for use.
A mere 125 IU of hCG coupled with his carefully designed 500 calorie diet reduced body weight rapidly, safely and with little or no hunger. The quantity needed to accomplish this was incredibly small when you consider that a woman excretes up to 1,000,000 IU of hCG a day in her urine. Despite the limited number of calories his patients were taking in, they reported little or no hunger. People are able to carry on living normal, vital lives. The only thing that is required of them is that they FOLLOW THE DIETARY PROTOCOL WITH PRECISION.
