Dr. Mac's Supervised HCG Weight Loss

Weight loss is a struggle whether it be initially losing the weight or keeping it off after you lose it.  HCG, or human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone produced by women when they are pregnant to ensure a fetus is supplied with essential nutrients.  With the HCG diet, a patient takes HCG under the supervision of a physician and follows a low calorie diet.
 
Most people that are overweight want to lose weight in specific areas such as the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, hips, and face.  Abnormal fat is stored in these areas and the HCG diet enables the body to release the fat stored there.  What can you expect on a supervised HCG diet in Indianapolis?
 
How The HCG Diet Works
 
Many diets fail because people quickly lose hope when they see no change in their weight or figure.  Weight loss is dramatic with the HCG diet with patients seeing results within the first week.  Often, a patient can expect to lose up to 1 pound per day in the first month if they follow a very low calorie diet.  Rapid weight loss is possible because the HCG hormone helps to suppress hunger and “trigger” your body to burn fat, not muscle!
Ordinarily, patients are able to remain comfortable while they eat very little.  Human chorionic gonadotropin changes your body composition in a way that favors muscle mass and supports a healthier metabolism.  In other diets, you lose muscle mass which is unhealthy for your metabolism and increases your chance of regaining the weight.
 
The Advantage Over Other Diet Programs
 
On the HCG diet, you can expect to see immediate results that are effective towards losing weight in the targeted areas.  The long-term benefit is having a lean figure with a healthy metabolism versus the usual diet program where pounds are lost but regained later on.  A supervised HCG diet in Indianapolis with Dr. Mac or Kristi is the optimum recipe for you to lose weight that gets you the body shape you desire.
