Dieters Can Eat Carbs Without the Added Pounds, Thanks to Diet Doc's New CarbZap Formula

Fri, 28 Apr 2017 01:00:00 EDT

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - April 28, 2017) - Carbohydrates are often viewed as an enemy of weight loss. Given how effective the South Beach Diet, Atkins diet and keto diet have been for many people, maintaining a low-carb diet has become a popular, go-to way of losing a few pounds. Carbs however, are a necessary aspect of our diet. They provide much needed fuel for energy and muscle growth. Healthier carb-laden food options also carry necessary fiber, vitamins and minerals. Diet Doc, a leader in the medical weight loss industry has created a powerful new prescription that allows dieters to eat carbs without the guilt or added pounds. CarbZap is a starch and carb blocker that excretes excess carbs from the body, rather than converting them into fat. By using CarbZap, caloric restriction is not necessary for weight loss (good news dieters). This helps to eliminate the fatigue, incessant hunger, cravings, and decreased physical activity that plague low-calorie dieting plans.

ANCHORAGE, AK--(Marketwired - April 24, 2017) - The U.S. market is saturated with fad diets, weight loss supplements, and "easy fixes" that promise to deliver rapid weight loss with no consequences.

A long-term weight loss solution, ideally monitored by a doctor and customized to the dieter's nutritional needs, is important for consistent weight loss progress. A regular fitness routine and a balanced diet with calorie monitoring are also important.
