    You are EXACTLY right... no where does it say: RESETS..........however, you will most likely run into a lot of opposition on this one. However, i commend you for speaking up and asking someone to SHOW YOU WHERE THESE WORDS ARE COMING FROM... I can tell you where RE-SETS came from: Kevin Trudeau, 'marketeer' who made millions off a book called the WEIGHT LOSS CURE...

    First of all there are no CURES for anything.... improvements, yes, CURES... NO!

    I have no idea why people continue to say this, believe this and promote that hCG RE-SETS the hypothalamus. These are medical claims that CANNOT be backed up....

    This all started with Trudeu's words.. the people across the country continue to use it, "webbers" continue to use it and for the life of me i CANNOT believe the FTC has not stepped in yet! I have been teaching practitioners the protocol since 2007 and the FIRST thing they learn from me is to NEVER use RE-SETS, FIXES or PERMANENT when describing hCG and the hCG diet. There is no scientific evidence of it... a LOT of people do lose weight quicker and get better long terms results that with just diet and exercise. The hCG may help balance the organ........ just like herbs can help organs FUNCTION better, but they don't FIX anything. ..........errrrrrrr!

    I AM a health care practitioner and I want to apologize for anyone and everyone in our industry that those words have EVER come out of their mouths or any of them who have lead any of their clients to believe that hCG is THE FIX. it's grounds for losing one's license and their practice and they should know better! . . . There is actually a company who mfgs homeopathic hCG and they say in their literature adn TEACH their professionals that it RE-SETS the hypothalamus..... I am doing a 90 minute talk in April to a very large group of professionals who use their products and most of my talk will be to enlighten them about the absurdity of the claims: RE-SETS.

    I personally believe the diet with the hCG helps to re-balance the hypothalamus..." iimprove upon it's function "... those are they types of words that are more valid and closer to the truth.

    Good for you for doing all that reading and speaking up. I had the fortunate opportunity to train with Dr. Daniel Belluscio in 2009, and the FIRST thing he said was, "Let me get this clear, hCG does not RE-SET the hypothalamus. Those are Mr. Kevin Trudeu's words, NOT DR SIMEONS!"

    When one understands the process that APPEARS to happen when people undergo the hCG diet. It is extraordinary for most... but everyone seems to be missing the basic concept of what can be happening functionally and metabolically. All these affiliate marketers selling their "DROPS" have turned it into a 3-Ring internet circus......... and that's too bad.

    HCG doesn't make you lose weight. You can't eat 8 pizzas a day and lose weight just becuase you're taking HCG. HCG causes your body to burn a certain sort of tissue for energy while you're losoing weight due to a 500 calorie diet. When you only take in 500 calories you're body starts eating itself for energy, and HCG causes your body to burn abnormal fat tissue for energy rather than muscle tissue, or structural/organ fat tissue.
    01/23/2011 Sunday: Still don't know if I'm taking the proper dose. I eat more than I should (800-1000calories almost all meat), but I've still been loosing weight. I'm not losing any more abnormal fat than I have on Atkins or other high protein/fat diets.

    R1/P2/VLCD13 208lb. Down 12lbs from pre-load weight (220), and 15lbs from post-load weight (223).

    I know how it works. I was responding to DeeGee's "HCG makes you NOT hungry and makes you NOT lose muscle while you're doing it. That's about it, and it's very simple", because it isn't that simple. There's more to it beside suppressing hunger and not losing muscle. Hcg is the element that burns off the abnormal fat.
    Think thin thoughts and it will become your experience.

    I was pretty small my whole life, even after I had my kids. I gained weight because I moved to the US where the foods have so many fillers and chemicals added also had fast food 24/7 and its cheap!
    Every time I go home I drop about 10lbs in about two weeks, yet I'm eating more than I do here because I pig out on all the things I can't get here, candy and all.

    I think that is what is inferred in DeeGee's statement actually. If you are not losing muscle, then you are losing something and that would be the abnormal fat. I think you both might be saying the same thing?? At least that is how I first read DeeGee's comment to mean...I just figured she was referring to the abnormal fat.

    I'm doing this under doctor's supervision, and my husband's doc actually did the diet herself. My doc's husband did it, too. They both say that this is the closest we have come to a "cure" for obesity, but that there will never be a total cure. My doc explained it like this - if you've had your gallbladder removed, it is gone forever. Were you cured of gallbladder attacks..well yes, but there is a missing organ to deal with the rest of your life. She said the responsibility to manage our new weight will fall on us, and that we are working with a compromised metabolism for the rest of our lives...it will just be a lot more doable. I have seizure disorder and will always have to take meds - do the meds cure me? No, but they make my life bearable. I have hypothyroidism. Does the medication cure me? No, but it helps me manage my disease. I'm looking at hcg the same way...I'm not going to be cured, but I'm going to have a tool to get my weight under control, and hopefully keep it under control. Just part of being in imperfect human bodies - we all have our problems, and there are meds, surgeries, adaptive devices, etc out there to help us manage.

    As funny as it sounds, obesity is almost a hidden disability. Yes, you see us with too much weight, but there is SOMETHING going on other than us eating too much food as we are always accused. For that reason I really like Dr. S's comments that eating is the symptom and not the cause. Hopefully we can get our symptoms under control with hch enough to live better lives. That's all I'm asking for. I have come to accept the fact that I'll have seizures and hypthyroidism all my life, and a broken metabolism is on the list, too. I'm not complaining as I know people who have lots worse to deal with.
    Failure is not an option.

    ROUND 1
    Preload - 195
    Postload - 199.8 (OMG!)
    Round 1- 172 (-27.8)
    In P3 and P4 held steady - up a little, down a little, but it was all good!

    ROUND 2
    Got sick and had to quit, but lost a few pounds

    ROUND 3 (Cycled 2 weeks)
    Preload - 173
    Postload - 177
    LDW - 165

    Starting Round 4 to lose 15 pounds from course of Prednisone. Fingers crossed.

    It's not that I'm eating different foods. I am now eating the exact same foods I used to gain on. I've been a very healthy eater for a good 15 years now and followed a hunter/gatherer type of diet with veggies, meat, fruit, nuts. But my weight continued to go up. With hcg I lost the abnormal fat that has refused to budge--my hips and thighs. I'm proportioned for the first time in my life. And while Dr. S doesn't specifically say the word reset, he says this:

    The diencephalon's functional equilibrium is delicately poised, so that whatever happens in one part
    has repercussions in others. In obesity this balance is out of kilter and can only be restored if the technique I am
    about to describe is followed implicitly. Even seemingly insignificant deviations, particularly those that at first
    sight seem to be an improvement, are very liable to produce most disappointing results and even annul the
    effect completely. For instance, if the diet is increased from 500 to 600 or 700 Calories, the loss of weight is
    quite unsatisfactory. If the daily dose of HCG is raised to 200 or more units daily its action often appears to be
    reversed, possibly because larger doses evoke diencephalic counter-regulations.

    If RESTORED doesn't mean fixes then I don't know what does. Like Beth, I can now eat MANY more calories than I was ever able to before. This protocol works. I've seen this exact same thing with me and over 50 friends and relatives. The fat comes off the abnormal stores without exercise. The weight loss is easily maintained and the calories are much higher than before. But if you don't have a TRUE hypothalamus disorder you might not have the same results I have had. But it's changed my life.

    I hope you are right, Grammy! I'll take restoration any day as I know mine DID work at one time because I was skinny as a rail for most of my life. I'm wondering what about those who were born with it "broken" for lack of a better word. I wonder if it can go beyond restoration, and actually effect a cure to someone who has never had a proper metabolism their entire life.

    This is a very interesting discussion!

    I know that something in my metabolism changed after my first round. Before trying HCG, I went on a 900 calorie a day diet and gained weight. After I finished with my first round I was eating approximately 2000 calories a day and maintaining or slowly losing. Maybe resetting can't be proven, but something happened.

    Whatever you want to call it... I'll take it! It's worked for me... No real issues with eating a more normal amount of calories in P3 and P4, etc.
