Diet Doc Offers Alternative to Weight Loss Hormone Injections with New ExtremBurn Product

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - October 22, 2016) - Hormone injections have recently become widely used to stimulate weight loss through injection directly into an individual's abdomen, upper arms or any areas with high amounts of fatty tissue. However, self-administered hormone injections can be risky, particularly with prescription strength doses, any treatment which involved injection into the body should be supervised by health care professionals with an extensive knowledge of the product and its corresponding dietary requirements. Medical weight loss program, Diet Doc, has created an innovative option to breakdown body fat within targeted areas of the body. Their new product, ExtremBurn is a lipotropic injection system that promotes safe and fast weight loss through the use of carefully calibrated injections, which can drastically improve the body's ability to lose weight in troublesome areas.

Diet Doc Offers Doctor-Supervised Military Diet to Minimize Harmful Weight Loss Side Effects

Sat, 22 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - October 22, 2016) - Approximately 80 million Americans are obese, with many more overweight and struggling to lose weight, despite serious health issues. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), encouraging Americans to lose weight (or even gain less weight) has been primarily ineffective. Effective weight loss involves using more calories than is intaken. One pound of weight is equivalent to 3,500 calories, so to lose 1-2 pounds per week, one needs to reduce caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day. This kind of caloric reduction diet, however, can be very risky without doctor-supervision and can be unrealistic for most people to maintain. With the abundance of unsupervised fad diets; unhealthy weight loss practices like skipping meals; over-the-counter "diet pills" unsupported or supervised by a doctor; and lack of a support system, weight loss can become complex.

Dr. Rao Reveals His Diet Plan Recommendations For Individuals Looking to Lose Weight Safely and Rapidly

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - October 21, 2016) - When choosing a diet program, one element that many surprisingly forget is to be specific around the type of body composition changes they are looking to achieve. For example, most people say they desire weight loss when they actually mean fat loss. Usually, the goal is optimal fat loss with minimal loss of muscle. So, most individuals tend to focus on either dieting and losing fat, exercising and building lean muscle, or a balance between the two. Once their goals have been set, the next objective part of any diet is determining what the macro targets should be (macros are the protein, carbs and fat that make up all diets). The macro targets will vary quite dramatically depending on the philosophy of the diet. Some might be high in protein grams while low in fat, while others like the ketogenic diet are actually high in fat and low in carb. Others like the Mediterranean diet are a balance between the three. Medical Director of Diet Doc, Dr. Nishant Rao leans toward the Paleo Diet, the Wild Diet, the Ketogenic Diet and the Jumpstart Diet as blueprints for diet target macros for patients looking to lose weight in a healthy manner.

Diet Doc Addresses the Obesity Epidemic With Doctor-Supervised Mediterranean Diet Plan

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

WILMINGTON, NC--(Marketwired - October 20, 2016) - Obesity has become an epidemic in America, with no end in sight. Nearly 38% of adults and 17% of children are obese with no federal or local strategies in place to prevent or control obesity. It is evident that higher body fat percentage contributes to lower cardiorespiratory and muscular endurance. Obesity and excessive weight gain, in general, are linked to serious health issues like heart diseases, diabetes, stroke, cancer and more. Therefore, monitoring weight gain while adopting a healthy diet plan is crucial.

Diet Doc Offers Doctor-Supervised Diet Plans to Minimize Harmful Weight Loss Side Effects

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

BIRMINGHAM, AL--(Marketwired - October 19, 2016) - In the United States, there is no shortage of fad diets and weight loss supplements promising a slimmer body through rapid weight loss. Around 45 million Americans diet each year, spending an estimated $33 billion annually on weight loss products. Nevertheless, nearly two-thirds of Americans are overweight or obese, facing serious health issues like diabetes, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, heart disease and more. Consistent regulation of physical activity and calories consumed is crucial. However, many weight loss programs and supplements can do more harm than good, particularly as dietary supplements do not require U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) before being marketed.

Dr. Rao Of Diet Doc Explains How Hormone Treatments Can Be Used More Effectively

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - October 18, 2016) - hCG (human chrionic gonadotropin), the placental glycoprotein hormone whose levels peak during pregnancy, is widely used as a hormone treatment for several purposes. Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of the nationally recognized weight loss program, Diet Doc, has researched the effectiveness of hCG injections and his findings have led him to favor such injections due to their ability to dissolve directly into the body's layers of fat. He says, "hCG injections are typically done subcutaneously into the belly fat. The hormone is fat soluble so that it readily disperses throughout the body, thus increasing the reliability of absorption." Dr. Rao explains, "This means that hCG injections ensure that dieters are always receiving the intended dose because the absorption rate is at 100 percent."

Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Recommends Temporary Gluten Restriction Before Embarking on Gluten-Free Diets

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

IDAHO FALLS, ID--(Marketwired - October 17, 2016) - Gluten is a protein which is found in certain grains such as, wheat, rye and barley. It has been used in a variety of pastas, breads, cereals and other processed foods to ensure that they maintain their shape. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, gluten acts as a trigger for those who are prone to having the autoimmune disorder, celiac disease, though it is primarily hereditary. Celiac disease may lead to a host of other inflammatory, gluten-related conditions which may stem from gluten sensitivity or wheat allergies. Gluten containing foods have been linked to many health issues, from celiac disease, to gluten sensitivities which are less serious but can cause inflammation and have been linked to weight gain for some individuals. There are many diets which are inherently lower in gluten due to being low in grains in general. The best examples of these are the Paleo Diet, the Ketogenic Diet both of which are low carb and grain, and ultimately end up being very low in gluten.
