Diet Doc Offers Appetite Suppressants and Doctor-Supervised Military Diet to Minimize Gradual Weight Gain

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 01:00:00 EST

JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - December 03, 2016) - Over 78 million Americans are obese and facing health issues like type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease and various types of cancer. Many more are overweight and suffering through the consequences of poor lifestyle choices and unbalanced diets. One of the leading causes of unmoderated weight gain is excessive food dependence, or food addiction, which involves the loss of control in moderating food consumption. Scientific evidence consistently indicates that food addiction makes it practically impossible for people to abstain from certain types of food or reduce consumption, even when faced with evident health risks. Many people simply lose control and are unable to moderate the consumption of tasty but fattening foods like sweets and processed snacks.

Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Warns That Going Gluten-Free Can Inadvertently Result in a Lack of Proper Nutrition

Fri, 02 Dec 2016 01:00:00 EST

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - December 02, 2016) - A new report by Harvard Medical School states that gluten-free dieting can easily result in a lack of proper nutrition, particularly for those without celiac disease. 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 form. According to the Celiac Disease Foundation, gluten acts as a trigger for those who are prone to having the gastrointestinal 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. Researchers are concerned that consumers who are eager to drop gluten from their diets may be lacking the essential B Vitamins, folate and fiber that comes from consuming fortified breads, cereals and pastas.

Diet Doc's Medical Director Finds No Evidence to Support The Popular Alkaline Diet

Thu, 01 Dec 2016 01:00:00 EST

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - December 01, 2016) - The Alkaline Diet is purported to change the body to a healthy PH state through changes in diet. The concept of alkalizing to improve health has been around for some time, however much of the research shows that many of these claims are baseless. Dr. Nishant Rao -- Medical Director of nationally recognized medical weight loss program, Diet Doc, states that, "One of the greatest problems with this concept is that it isn't very scientifically sound. The body maintains an extremely narrow pH window, with blood pH ranging between 7.35 and 7.45. This means that even as you consume highly alkaline foods, your body will always regulate blood pH in this narrow window." Dr. Rao also explains that, "If you consumed a high amount of acidic food, your body would offset it by buffering blood pH so that the actual levels never change."

Wed, 30 Nov 2016 01:00:00 EST

BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - November 30, 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. Diligently choosing diet supplements and weight loss programs, therefore, is important.
