Each year, more individuals are in search of a diet plan targeted towards losing weight as obesity rates in adult men and women near 36%.  A variety of diet plans offer dieters with a promise of losing a specific number of pounds by solely making changes to their diet.  On the HCG diet, individuals receive HCG injections and follow an intake of 500 calories each day.  How is this possible when the average calorie intake each day is reportedly 2,640 for men and 1,785 for women?
 
The Function Of HCG
 
HCG or human chorionic gonadotropin is a hormone that ensures adequate nutrients are supplied to a mother and fetus during pregnancy.  An essential part to the effectiveness of the HCG diet is the use of HCG.  Consuming only 500 calories a day alone would lead to feelings of fatigue, hunger, and moodiness.  HCG makes it possible to follow a 500 calorie intake per day as it controls your hunger by releasing fat stores into the bloodstream.
 
These fat stores may be up to 1500 calories each day so your appetite is suppressed as the body burns excess fat.  As a result, lean muscle is retained since the body distributes an effect on excess fat cells rather than muscle.  Typically, people dedicated to the program can expect to lose 1 to 2 pounds per day in areas where it is needed most.  How does retaining muscle mass affect the success of your weight loss?
 
Long-Term Weight Loss
 
One reason diet programs fail is due to losing muscle mass which slows metabolism and makes it easier to regain weight in the future.  The HCG diet is beneficial to metabolism as muscle mass stays and promotes your metabolism to continue functioning after the diet as it was during the diet.  Contact Dr. Mac or Kristi and embrace all the benefits of a HCG diet in Indianapolis to rapidly lose stubborn weight!
