Diet Doc's Medical Team Combines Ketogenic Diet Plans With Low-Dose Naltrexone For Those Struggling To Lose Weight

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

HUNTSVILLE, AL--(Marketwired - October 26, 2016) - When blood sugar is well-regulated, it has no negative impact on health or one's ability to gain or lose weight. However, problems begin to arise when those who have consumed far more sugar than their body can handle, start to develop problems as far as their body's ability to process sugar is concerned. Elevations in blood sugar not only can eventually lead to diabetes, but are also correlated with heart disease and obesity. Due to this understanding, Dr. Rao of Diet Doc believes that blood sugar regulation should be a very important aspect of any fat loss program, and Diet Doc's ketogenic diet plans combined with their new prescription weight loss pill, LDN or Low-Dose Naltrexone allows for sizable drops in blood sugar which can allow for fat loss to occur more effectively. Naltrexone has long been used to fight opioid and alcohol addiction by decreasing the euphoric effects of such substances. Dr. Rao explains, "LDN is an appetite suppressant which works by decreasing one's sugar and carb cravings through the increase of natural endorphins such as serotonin and dopamine. These increased endorphin levels enhance mood and balance out emotions to prevent emotional overeating and incessant snacking."

Diet Doc's Dr. Rao Explains The Role of Candida in Weight Management

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 01:00:00 EDT

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - October 25, 2016) - Candida is a type of yeast which can cause migraines, yeast infections dizziness, fatigue and other symptoms when an overgrowth in the digestive tract is present. The most common medically recognized manifestations are urinary tract infections and sores which can occasionally show up in the mouth and throat areas. Candida in the digestive tract can be confirmed via stool test, or by looking for the presence of antibodies in the blood. Several versions of the candida diet exist which limit the consumption of sugar and fermented foods with the goal of starving off the yeast in the intestinal tract. Caprylic acid is often used to treat candida, along with other OTC natural extracts. A focus on gut health where fiber intake is increased is also common.

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.
