Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc Finds Unexpected Similarities Between the Sirtfood Diet and Doctor-Supervised Weight Loss

Fri, 24 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - February 24, 2017) - The Sirtfood Diet focuses on consuming foods which may interact with a type of protein called, Sirtuins. The primary foods that contain this protein include chocolate, red wine, kale, blueberries, citrus, prawns, and salmon as well as green juices. The diet itself is limited to 1000 calories for each of the first three days, then the diet increases to 1500 calories per day. Dr. Nishant Rao -- Medical Director of Diet Doc's national medical weight loss program advises dieters who are looking to lose weight on the Sirtfood Diet that, "Most of the initial weight loss during the first three days is going to be glycogen weight (stored carbohydrates + water), not actual fat loss." Dr. Rao continues, "Also, there is very little research on the actual impact that these foods have on weight loss when you take their calorie counts out of the equation."

Diet Doc Reminds Consumers that the hCG Diet is not a Viable Weight Loss Strategy

Thu, 23 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

WESTON, WV--(Marketwired - February 23, 2017) - The physicians and researchers at Diet Doc medical weight loss are urging consumers to choose wisely when it comes to weight loss strategies this year. Certain diets are gaining popularity due to an enormous internet presence, which leaves little room for proven, researched based weight loss strategies. This can lead many individuals to make unsafe dietary choices simply because a fad has allegedly produced satisfactory results for other dieters. The hGG diet is a prime example of this. Produced during pregnancy, the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (hCG) is purported to stimulate weight loss in conjunction with a calorie restrictive diet plan (only 500 calories per day are to be consumed). Supporters claim that HCG injections, drops or tablets target and eliminate long-stored fat reserves within the body. Over the past few years, the marketing and promotion of the hCG diet for weight loss have grown astronomically on the internet and the vast majority of the information on hCG and its corresponding products offered online are designed to confuse and make profit from an unknowing public. The truth, is that the medical industry has never supported the hCG diet. In fact, since its emergence in the 1950s, it still has yet to be deemed effective, or safe by any reputable medical organization.

Diet Doc Provides Customized And Healthy Weight Loss Alternatives To Starvation-Based hCG Diet

Wed, 22 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - February 22, 2017) - When it comes to weight loss, some of the most important factors include genetics, general health, daily behavior and physical activities. Based on research, dieting is the most important component that affects weight gain or weight loss. By improving eating behavior, for instance, one can dramatically affect their weight. This is why emotional eating, binge eating and other common dietary abnormalities can have long-term effects of body weight. Effective weight loss generally involves losing more calories than you gain. Because one pound of weight is equivalent to 3,500 calories, one needs to reduce caloric intake by 500-1000 calories per day in order to lose 1-2 pounds per week. However, this type of extreme dieting is often starvation-based and therefore risky.

Diet Doc Recommends Doctor-Supervised Ketogenic Diet Over Alkaline Diet to Boost Healthy Weight Loss

Tue, 21 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

ANCHORAGE, AK--(Marketwired - February 21, 2017) - With obesity rates reaching nearly 35% in America, the focus on dieting and weight loss planning has increased nationwide. Regulating certain types of food has been linked to lower rates of obesity and the weight loss market has reached over $64 billion. With the variety of diets available, making an educated choice can sometimes be challenging. One diet that has become recently popular is the Alkaline Diet, which involves regulating foods that can supposedly affect the acidity (low pH) levels of the body. By lowering the consumption of acid-enhancing foods (like meat, dairy, eggs, refined sugar, wheat, alcohol, caffeine and processed foods), the Alkaline Diet aims to minimize acidity and thereby promote alkalinity. Foods like fruits, vegetables, soybeans, tofu, nuts, seeds and legumes, for instance, are considered "alkaline-promoting" and therefore encouraged. A significant decrease in alkalinity, according to the believers of the Alkaline Diet, results in reduced body fat.

Diet Doc Helps Patients Lose Weight Fast With hCG Diet Without Any Harmful Starvation Diet Practices

Mon, 20 Feb 2017 01:00:00 EST

WESTON, WV--(Marketwired - February 20, 2017) - Considering the rising rates of obesity and widespread availability of diets and weight loss programs, dieters have a lot to choose from. Not all weight loss programs are made equal, however, and sometimes, losing weight fast is not worth the health consequences involved. The hCG diet has, historically, been controversial because it was initially presented as the Simeons diet, which involved combining low doses of hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin), a hormone produced during pregnancy, with extremely low caloric intake to promote rapid weight loss by burning "abnormal" fat, located in cells and around internal organs. The Simeons diet, also known as the original hCG diet, is dangerous because it is essentially a starvation diet that caps daily consumption to 500 calories. It leads to harmful side effects like weakness, muscle loss, and hair loss.
