The Diet!
Do not receive any massages, drink any soda or diet soft drinks, eat pork or exercise excessively, because these things will cause weight loss to stall.

DO follow the diet and eat only the foods specified for the best results. If you deviate from the diet plan your weight loss will slow down or stop.

Days 1-3 eat anything you want. Start taking your supplements now and focus on high fat content foods. The idea is to build up your normal fat stores so that your body has energy and you are not hungry. This also helps with the psychological connections to food.

Days 4-23 or 4-40  low fat, low carb, no sugar diet. You must avoid fats, sugars and carbohydrates so that your body will burn its own fat. If fats, sugars and carbohydrates are available it will burn them first, and you will not burn as many of your fat cells.

After you complete the protocol, for the next 3 days, follow the same diet you were on while using the supplements. For the next three weeks avoid sugars and carbohydrates so that your body has time to adjust. Increase your caloric intake and eat 5-6 times a day. After three weeks you may eat a healthy diet. Slowly introduce whole grains and carbohydrates into your diet. Remember a healthy diet means that you should eat 2/3's vegetables and fruits and the other third should come from lean and healthy protein sources such as chicken, fish, nuts, beans, legumes etc.

We hope that this diet will help you change your relationship with food. A healthy diet is very important to our health and cell growth. Eating a healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is important. Processed foods do not provide nutrients, antioxidants or fiber to your diet and they are very important to living a healthy life.

Three Kinds of Fat

1.       Structural Fat: Used to protect body organs and arteries, and to keep skin smooth and taut.
 

2.       Normal Reserve Fat: Used to store energy for immediate use.
 

3.       Abnormal Fat: Burned only after normal fat stores are depleted. It is not available to the body in emergency energy situations. This is the hard to burn fat.

Typically, when you diet to lose pounds the first fat to be used up are the normal reserves, then the structural reserves. Finally, the body resorts to the abnormal fat stores to find the energy it needs. By this point most people have already gotten so tired and weak that they give up on the diet. Instead of losing the largest stores of fat, they have decreased the important fat that protects their bones and makes their skin look taut, so they look older and more wrinkled. The diet burns the abnormal fat around the hips, thighs, potbelly, and double chin. It releases 2000 calories per day to burn as energy from these places.

An obese person requires more calories to function than a leaner person, because it takes more energy to move around, maintain body temperature and simply exist. If you recall the fat types we discussed in the previous paragraph you will notice that these people are burning their normal stores of fat for energy, and then feeling exhausted until they consume more calories.

 Treatment

The standard length of treatment is 23 days for an overweight person. Obese patients may stay on the program for 40 days, and then if needed may wait no less than 6 weeks and do another round. If more rounds of treatment are required each resting period must be progressively longer than the last. Scheduled breaks are 6 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks, 20 weeks and 6 months.

Patients who have been dieting and who may have low normal fat reserves should eat to build up their normal fat reserves when starting this program. For three days they should eat more calories than normal to build up their normal fat stores. These calories should be from high fat foods. Normal fat reserves are required for energy. A small amount of weight gain may occur, but it will come off rather quickly from the abnormal fat stores.

Do not exercise excessively or receive any massages during this phase of treatment. The toxins that are released by the burning of extra fat cells are being processed by the body during this phase. By exercising hard or receiving a massage you release more toxins into the blood.

 

Post Treatment 

The first three days after completing a series, patients must remain on the low calorie diet. This will reset the metabolism. The first three weeks post-treatment are crucial to success of a managed weight loss. Carbohydrates and sugar should be avoided during the first three weeks after treatment. Weight during this time may fluctuate if over consumption occurs. Combining fats and starches will cause weight gain. Patients should weigh themselves each morning to manage their weight. Followed correctly, this plan will train your body to use stored fat for energy when it’s needed.

The Loading Phase

The goal is to eat as many calories as possible, preparing the body for a period of very low calorie intake. These foods should be high in fat. By completely filling all fat stores, the metabolism is convinced that the body is not in a starvation mode. For some it is useful to think this as "bear eating", like a bear preparing for a long winter.

 The beginning days are also designed to attack some of the psychological addictions that many have developed over time. By gorging on their favorite foods for several days, patterns and associations are changed while cravings are satisfied. Many find that the first day is almost unbelievable, but find it very difficult to continue to the end of the second day.

Recommended foods:
Fried foods, hot dogs, hamburgers, french fries, corndogs, onion rings, Mexican food, fried chicken, pork rinds, potato chips, pot pies, pizza, gravy, Macadamia nuts, macaroni and cheese, rich sauces,  butter, cheese, ice cream, milk shakes, doughnuts, chocolate, cookies, cakes, candy bars, pies, hot fudge and whipped cream.

 Rapid Weight Loss Phase

For many, believing and accepting the rapid weight loss is perhaps the most difficult part of the diet. This isn't surprising, since we've all been taught to lose 1-2 pounds per week, then suddenly a diet claims to produce that type of weight loss every day!

Those who ignore the skeptics and try the diet find they rapidly lose weight without excessive hunger. Men tend to average a little over a pound per day, while women can expect to lose about 1/2 to 1 pound per day. The weight loss is more dramatic in the beginning and tends to slow during the last week.

For many, a diet so low in calories seems impossible to achieve; however, thousands of calories are released for energy as fat is burned from areas all over the body and hunger is eliminated.

The most important concept to understand about this phase is how incredibly reactive the body is to any variance away from the eating plan. Even the smallest changes can produce large gains in weight and set back additional weight loss for almost 3 days.

 Diet Tips

The meals may be broken up and eaten throughout the day, but the daily ration of 2 carbohydrates or 2 fruits can never be eaten at the same time. The chicken breast cannot be substituted with turkey or other fowl, nor does it mean a wing or a drumstick of chicken. If you have a stall in loss you may opt. to do an apple day. Eat nothing but apples, applesauce (no sugar) apple juice etc… with no sugar or artificial sweeteners. Venison has been substituted for meat in some occasions.

Kitchen Scale

To accurately weigh portions, you must have a scale that is accurate to one-tenth of an ounce. Using grams is a more accurate method than ounces (28 grams = 1 ounce).

 The diet must not exceed 500 calories per day; equally important are the sources of the calories. While there are many fruits and vegetables that are not on the diet that have equal or lower calories, they cannot be substituted for those listed on the diet. Pimiento peppers, okra, artichokes, pears and turkey are examples of this.

 Because of its higher fat content, red meat shouldn't be eaten more than once per day. The diet works for the small elderly grandmother, the same way it does for the giant young linebacker. This happens because the pathway is the same - the dieter is living off their fat reserves instead of the fat that is eaten.

 Fruits and vegetables with high levels of carbohydrates (starches) are not allowed. Here is a list of the foods to avoid:

Acorn Squash

Bananas

Butternut squash

Carrots

Corn

Glycemic Index:
Not all carbohydrate foods are created equal; in fact they behave quite differently in our bodies. The Glycemic index or GI describes this difference by ranking carbohydrates according to their effect on our blood glucose levels. A Glycemic Index Chart is available on our website at http://www.drkessinger.com/images/glycemicindex.pdf. 

 Maintenance Eating Plans

Once this phase beings, you may now eat anything you'd like except starch and sugar. After about 3 weeks, the bodyweight should become stable and should not have dramatic swings upward after an occasional intake of excess calories. According to Dr. Simeon, "If no carbohydrates whatsoever are eaten, fats can be indulged in somewhat more liberally and even small quantities of alcohol, such as a glass of wine with meals, does no harm, but as soon as fats and starch are combined things are very liable to get out of hand. This has to be observed very carefully during the first 3 weeks after the treatment is ended, otherwise disappointments are almost sure to occur." 

It is important to eat an adequate amount of protein and enough food. A good rule of thumb is to double your intake of protein and triple the amount of calories. Instead of 2 servings of 3.5 oz. (100g), you would have 2 servings of 7 oz. (200g), with a daily target of about 1,500 calories. These numbers would then be adjusted based upon your hunger and daily weight to maintain your weight in the 4 pound target range.

If your weight goes up 2 or more pounds, you must immediately have a Steak Day. Steak Day Tips: Go to the butcher. Buy yourself the biggest, fattest, best marbled cut of meat they have to offer (you don't have to watch the fat now) and if you're not sure which cut is best, ask the meat guy. Take it home and sauté it in oil, butter, garlic, or whatever other seasoning you want. Relish every bite of the steak until you are full.  Follow with an apple.  You can substitute a tomato for the apple if you prefer. Some have lost as much as 7 pounds of gained inflammation in just one day using this technique

If it goes down more than 2 pounds, you must have a double Philly Steak Day.

 Read Food Labels!

Next time you're food shopping, carefully read the labels before purchasing anything. It will amaze you just how many products have sugar added to them. Now they may not come right out and call it sugar, but that's exactly what it is.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

 FUNCTION

In a non-pregnant state, this weight-loss aid helps reduce the craving for food by making stored fat available for metabolism, thus aiding in the ability to adhere to a rigid diet program.

 It accesses unnecessary fat stored in the body just as it does in early pregnancy. Abnormal fat deposits disappear; the double chin, potbelly and fat around hips and thighs are the first to go. It does not deplete subcutaneous or other essential fat. For many, complexion improves, gaining a natural freshness and healthy glow with a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Most weight-loss participants see a loss in girth (inches) before they see any substantive drop in the scales. When properly supervised, the result is rapid weight loss and improved body shape during and after treatment.

Scientific evidence suggests that it promotes lipolytic (mobilizes fat) activity. Reshaping of body contour is quickly noticeable in those patients who struggle with fat located in buttocks and hips area. As the body metabolizes stored body fat, about 2000 calories are released into the bloodstream, thus allowing for a low calorie per day diet without experiencing fatigue, weakness or hunger.

 Will my metabolism slow down if I’m on a very low calorie diet?

Yes, normally when we cut back our calories and fat, our bodies store fat and our metabolisms slow down. This happens because fat is really a life-saving source of stored energy. When a very low calorie diet is used in conjunction with our weight loss supplement, it causes the body to use stored fat for energy, and eliminates excess fat reserves. It’s a natural process, so no ill effects on your metabolism will result.

 Wouldn’t I lose the same amount of weight eating a very low calorie diet without the supplement?

You can lose weight by simply eating fewer calories and fat, but because the body stores fat during times of deprivation, you will most likely lose muscle and bone before fat. This causes cellular metabolism to slow down, so in the long run, it would make gaining weight easier, as well as decrease bone density and muscle mass. By using the supplement with the low calorie diet, extra fat is mobilized for energy and the rest is eliminated; the low calorie diet is vital in preventing immediate refilling of emptied fat cells. You benefit by preferentially getting rid of excess fat without affecting your bone and muscle.

 The diet is very low calorie, will I get hungry?

 Because it mobilizes fat and makes it available to the body as an energy source, it naturally reduces appetite. So even though you are taking in fewer calories, your body can access the energy you have stored in fat cells. After about 2 days, many patients notice a significant decrease in their appetite. Overall, most people have plenty of energy and feel good while on the program.

What if I stop losing weight?

Weight stalls are common, but many will find that even if they don't lose weight for a couple days they are still losing inches. If you are concerned about a stall you can have an apple day. This day you eat nothing but apples. 6 of them total. If the apple day does not cause some weight loss, check your stress levels. High stress, PMS and too much salt can cause you to stall.

Will it interfere with any medications I am currently taking? What about birth control pills or Depo-Provera injections?

Homeopathics do not interact with ANY medications, including birth control pills or Depo-Provera, so there are NO side effects.

Will I experience any changes in my menstrual cycle taking it?

Because the amount of is so small, there are no changes to your menstrual cycle. Likewise, it will not affect your ability to become pregnant, nor will it increase your chances of getting pregnant.

Will this affect Breastfeeding?

We do not recommend that you use any unnecessary drugs or remedies while you are nursing.
 

What happens if you drink alcohol while on the diet?

The diet is VERY specific about what to eat; people who cut corners will not lose as much weight, if any at all...the chemical composition of everything on the diet is very specific...

When on the diet a user, who has been a drinker, may find that a relatively small amount of alcohol produces the euphoric intoxication feeling. While on the diet, we have had many clients whom have had a small glass of vodka and mineral water with a bit of lemon (or vodka and 8 oz of fresh orange juice, this juice will count as one of your servings of juice) and still lost weight, during the initial weight loss phase. Dr. A.T.W Simeons does allow for a glass (8 oz) of wine with dinner during the maintenance phase of the diet (after you stop taking the supplement). During the initial weight loss phase of the diet be sure to check sugar content of alcohol, the less the better.

How much weight can I expect to lose on the program?

On average, our patients lose around 20 lbs. or more per month. Often, people lose 10 to 12 lbs. in the first week.

 Does the weight loss slow down after the first month?

Many times what we see is a large amount of weight loss in the first month, then a plateau or leveling off. This does not mean that your weight loss has stopped. Typically, inches are being lost continuously while on the program, and after a period of time, patients will experience another large drop on the scale. Weight loss is thus achieved in this stair-step fashion. 

Why am I not supposed to exercise?

Because of the amount of fat being deposited into your bloodstream while using it, excessive exercise can actually be counterproductive during the program. The body can only process so much fat in a day and excessive exercise can cause too much fat to be released, which can cause the patient to lose no weight. Walking about 20 minutes a day should be acceptable, but each person must monitor their own efforts and determine if it is detrimental or helpful.

What are homeopathics?

Do homeopathic remedies work? Most people who have used them will tell you “yes, they definitely do!”, but some skeptics have a difficult time agreeing that it is possible for this to happen. I am not going to claim to be smarter than all the scientists who have done studies on homeopathy and how it works, but I will tell you that in my experience I have seen great results in a number of situations.

Homeopathic remedies are created based on the idea that “Like treats Like.” For hundreds of years, people have been treated using this philosophy. Homeopathic physicians learned that if you find a substance that causes a specific symptom in an individual, when you reduce it down to minute particles in water, it can cure those symptoms. The final result of this dilution leaves only a “pattern” of the original substance, but because the body knows how to react to the substance, it also recognizes the pattern of it. This works very well in instances where the substance itself causes side effects, because the homeopathic version will not cause side effects.

What is a steak day?

If you are on the maintenance phase of the program and you gain more than 2 pounds in a day you should have a steak day. Go to the butcher. Buy yourself the biggest, fattest, best marbled cut of meat they have to offer (you don't have to watch the fat now) and if you're not sure which cut is best, ask the meat guy. Take it home and sauté it in oil, butter, garlic, or whatever other seasoning you want. Relish every bite of the steak until you are full. Follow with an apple. You can substitute a tomato for the apple if you prefer. Some have lost as much as 7 pounds of gained inflammation in just one day using this technique

    Mexican Chicken Soup
    100g cooked chicken, shredded into bite-sized pieces
    3-4 cloves minced garlic
    1 t cumin
    1/2 t onion powder
    1/2 t chili powder
    1/2 t cayenne (use less if you don't want it as spicy)

    2-3 c homemade chicken broth
    1/4 c fresh chopped cilantro (optional)

    1. Preheat pot over medium-high heat.

    Easy Homemade Broth
    100g chicken (you can add more chicken - you just need to track your portions)
    parsley
    onion powder
    garlic
    thyme
    rosemary
    oregano
    basil
    bay leaf
    salt
    black pepper

    1. Fill saucepan 3/4 full with water.
    2. Bring to boil.
    3. Add chicken and seasonings.
    4. Boil for 20 mins.
    5. Remove boiled chicken & serve or refrigerate and save for later.
    6. Strain out bay leaf & seasonings.
    7. Let broth cool to room temperature.
    8. Skim fat off surface (if any).
    9. Refrigerate broth.
    10. Once cold, skim the rest of the fat from the top (if any).
    11. Store in refrigerator or freeze for later use.


    TIP: You can add on-protocol veggies such as 3-4 stalks celery (I usually add the trimmings that I don't eat) and 1 onion for more flavor - just be sure to strain them at the end. You can also choose to omit the chicken altogether and just use the celery and onion with the seasonings for a simple veggie broth. OR add your steak trimmings that you've inevitably had to trim from your steaks and add to the broth for a beef broth.

    TIP2: I usually freeze the broth in ice cube trays after cooling and skimming all fat. Then after they freeze, I place the cubes of broth in a freezer bag. This makes for easy use when 'frying' up shrimp, chicken, etc. Just toss a broth cube into a pan and let it melt then add your meat, etc. It adds flavor and keeps food from sticking.
