Dr. Rao Finds that Fad Diets Do More Harm than Good When It Comes to Long-Term Weight Loss Success
ANCHORAGE, AK–(Marketwired – December 14, 2016) – Statistics show that 90 percent of fad dieters gain back all weight lost, soon after the diet has ended. Fad diets are typically those which promise fast weight loss without exercise or balanced eating habits. According to Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc, this occurs for several reasons. “First, when most people are losing weight, they are actually losing muscle. This means that although weight may be dropping, a person’s body composition isn’t necessarily improving due to the loss of lean muscle mass.” So, once the Military Diet, the Slimfast Diet, or Cabbage Soup Diet ends, an individual may still have the same body fat percentages even though they’ve appeared to lose weight. Dr. Rao believes that this negatively impacts hormone levels and metabolic rates. He continues, “At this point, it is hard if not impossible to maintain the weight loss and unfortunately, weight gain can become rapid.”
While fad dieting may be a temporary solution, doctor-supervised medical weight loss programs tend to lay the blueprint for greater, long-term weight loss success since much of the work is in weight maintenance after the loss of excess fat. Medical weight loss organizations, such as the nationally recognized Diet Doc program, considers medical history and current dietary habits in order to make significant behavioral and lifestyle changes which can require a lot of support. “Medical weight loss is an A-Z process where not only the short-term goals are kept in mind, but long term support so that body composition is favorable, muscle loss is minimized and metabolism isn’t harmed in the process.”
Diet Doc doesn’t offer fad dieting programs, or temporary weight loss solutions as the research shows that they simply do not work. Instead, their nutritionists and coaches customize diet plans for every body type and lifestyle (athletes, vegetarians, and those wanting to lose only a few pounds or over 100 pounds). Diet Doc’s unique, Weight Maintenance Program will keep the weight off and provide tools and knowledge needed for patients to remain at their ideal weight.
