Dr. Albert T.W. Simeons

Dr. Simeons was a noted endocrinologist, world traveler, and Red Cross Order of Merit recipient. However, he is best known today for his innovations in using the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) to treat obesity.

Dr. Simeons was born in London, England and graduated summa cum laude [with honors] with a medical degree from the prestigious University of Heidelberg in Germany. He is the author of several medical books and has contributed to many scientific publications.

His most famous book was published in 1954 and was titled “Pounds and Inches”. It is from this landmark study that the modern HCG Diet Protocol derives its approach. In the manuscript, Dr. Simeons discusses the complex combinations of contributors to obesity. He outlines the three main causes of obesity: genetic disposition, glandular disorders and culture. To combat an imbalance resulting from these factors of obesity, Dr. Simeons devised his HCG Diet Protocol, which recommends a low dose of the HCG hormone and outlines menus for a particular low calorie diet of 500 Calories.
