In many cases, emotional eating is part of the equation as well. Emotional eating involves eating unhealthy snacks or too much food when one is emotionally stressed or challenged. Excessive hunger between meals and uncontrollable cravings for unhealthy food are also common. These prevalent issues make maintaining a reliable and healthy diet quite challenging.

The 800-Calorie Diet Trend Should Only be Practiced Under Strict Medical Supervision, According to Dr. Nishant Rao

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 01:00:00 EDT

NEW ORLEANS, LA--(Marketwired - March 21, 2017) - The intention of the latest 800-Calorie Diet trend is to create caloric deficits for rapid weight loss results. For the average dieter, this could mean cutting down their caloric intake by 1000 or more calories each day. Ideally, the plan is only recommended for those who fall into the obesity category, but this hasn't prevented many who are overweight, or just needing to lose a few extra pounds from attempting the diet. The 800-Calorie diet itself has no specific regimen to follow, being that the only requirement is that one remains with in those caloric restraints. While the consumption of vegetables and fruits are recommended on the diet, there are no specific guidelines, which lead many to skimp on nutrition in order to focus on calories alone. According to health professionals, this diet falls under the very low calorie diet category.

Dr. Rao Explains that the Beyond Diet May Not Take Caloric Deficits into Account for Expedient Weight Loss

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 01:00:00 EDT

SIOUX FALLS, SD--(Marketwired - March 21, 2017) - The Beyond Diet looks to promote clean eating and avoidance of certain foods that hinder metabolic function. It is essentially, another re-hash of basic healthy eating principles based on the premise that eliminating five of the following foods: orange juice, soy milk, artificial sweetener, wheat bread and pasta will recharge the metabolism. Dr. Nishant Rao - Medical Director of Diet Doc explains that, "While this may be true for some, it certainly doesn't apply to everyone with weight management challenges, nor does the Beyond Diet offer anything particularly unique. It simply removes obviously unhealthy food and replaces it with healthier options."
