What is a Calorie

One ounce of fat is 219 calories!

If one pound of body fat equals about 3,500 calories.  Then, what exactly is a calorie?

A calorie is a word used as a universal standard. A unit of measure used to define thermal energy. The amount of heat needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water one degree Celsius.

If that didn’t make any sense, then just think of it as the amount of fat in your food. If you ate a pound of fat then you would gain 3500 calories of energy. (One lb of fat) Not vary appetizing, but simple to figure.

example

I’ll give you an example. If you need 4000 calories a day to maintain bodily functions and you eat (take in) 500 calories, your body is forced to use your stored fat to supply you with energy. So you burn up 3500 calories and you lose one pound. You have to deal with the hunger and your body uses the closest supply of fat. and that is not the fat around your middle and butt. The advantages of the HCG Diet are that it signals  the body to use the Large fat stores (belly, butt, thighs) and not the fat stored in the muscle that triggers the hunger. Because of that your metabolism does not slow down, in fact it kicks in because there is enough energy provided to do so.
