But I'm not more aggressive—a behavior change often tied to testosterone. That's not surprising to Robert Sapolsky, ., a neuroendocrinologist at Stanford University and a leading researcher on stress and behavior. "It's really not the case that testosterone 'causes' aggressive behavior," he says. "Instead, it makes the brain more sensitive to social cues that trigger aggression. And in support of that, a guy's testosterone level isn't a very good predictor of how likely he is to be aggressive."
Hello, thought I better drop a line, it’s been a while and thought you might wonder how I have been doing on the HCG Lyn. Firstly, you are pretty lucky to have lost 10 kilos in 3 weeks. Here I was naively thinking this happened to the majority of people who did the Protocol, but no. The average weight loss seems to be about 200-300g a day, which is only 4- kilos for 3 weeks. But, a loss is a loss. I myself got very bored in the end with the green tea and I got a massive sugar craving which lasted days and days, which caused me to fail in the end and I was eating CHOCOLATE everyday. I have now stopped the drops and am on P3 day 3, so tomorrow I’m allowed to eat more food and start testing myself with foods which is great. Overall I lost kilos in 43 days which is great. I’m still a couple of Kilos off my goal weight but I can achieve this with the right food and exercise which we weren’t allowed to do much of on the diet. For anyone out there going to do it, it definitely works but you should really do some research on exactly what you are and aren’t allowed to eat or drink while on it. (Only allowed 100% stevia extract powder for sweetener, your blood group can have an affect, spinach is a vegetable not a free food for example) It can stop you from having unnecessary plateaus which are disappointing. I also got some sad news about my Dads health and this could possibly have had a little to do with my failing, but I can’t confirm that. Just be warned, there can be a lot of obstacles, you must be strong. Good luck.
When researching HCG in a variety of clients, Dr. Simeons noticed that when a patient was put on a low dose of Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) coupled with a low calorie diet, that the client started to lose weight quickly. He also noticed that they were not losing muscle mass, just abnormal fat that had been stored away. While on the HCG diet, Dr. Simeons noticed a permanent change in the function of the diencephalon, particularly the hypothalamus. He saw that his patients could keep the weight they lost off long term, rather than having to yo-yo diet. He also noticed that in some cases, while weight may not have been lost, it may have helped move the abnormal fat more evenly throughout the body. There is a portion in the Pounds & Inches manuscript in regards to The Emaciated Lady. A woman sat down in his office looking sickly. He thought she may have cancer and was wondering which one of his colleagues he could refer her to. When she explained that she wanted to reduce he was confused by her answer. But when she stood up, he noticed that she may have a tiny waist, but she had enormous hips & thighs. By using the HCG diet, he managed to transfer the abnormal fat from her hips and thighs to the rest of her body. After 5 weeks on the program, she did not lose any weight, however she lost 8 inches around her hips and her skin looked fresh and healthy.
