Kevin Trudeau The Weight Loss Cure: HCG Diet Protocol, Food List, Menu

Hcg Diet 169

Kevin Trudeau is widely known as a controversial author, and advocate of homeopathic and natural cures. His most famous book, “The Weight Loss Cure They Don’t Want You to Know About,” was based on the research and practice of Hcg hormone used for weight loss by Dr. A.T.W. Simeons.  The book sold millions of copies, and was celebrated across the country.  On the other hand, critics and the FTC were not as accepting of the claims and Trudeau was eventually stopped from marketing the practice further.

As a result of Trudeau’s book, the Hcg weight loss program has been adopted and adapted by countless physicians across the world.  There are now thousands of protocol variations and millions of success stories, with the diet becoming more mainstream in popularity each year.  In fact, the diet has been featured on Dr. Oz multiple times, as well as on Rachel Ray Show, and countless news and morning shows.  In Hollywood, the use of Hcg hormone has become a popular choice for celebrities wanting to lose weight before premieres and has been widely promoted by celebrity doctors.

Kevin Trudeau’s Weight Loss Plan

This version of the Hcg Diet varies widely from the original protocol by Dr. Simeons.  According to Trudeau, the first month of the HCG diet is designed to detoxify your body and prepare you for lifelong weight management.  This is the first distinction between his version of the diet and Dr. Simeons, who didn’t actually include phases in his protocol.

The Weight Loss Cure includes 3 phases, a large number of supplements, organic foods, and significant amounts of exercise throughout the weight loss phase.  These are outlined below.
