PROVIDENCE, RI--(Marketwired - October 14, 2016) - The American obesity epidemic continues to worsen and encouraging Americans to lose weight (or even avoid excessive weight gain in general) has proven largely ineffective. More than 78 million individuals, or 34.9% of all Americans, are obese with many more overweight. Obesity leads to health issues like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. These conditions are some of the leading causes of preventable death in America, which makes weight loss programs critical.
Studied based on the The National Library of Medicine MEDLINE and Derwent RINGDOC databases have shown that even modest weight loss (10% or less) in obese or overweight patients makes an enormous difference. Regulating certain types of food, in particular, makes an enormous difference in promoting weight loss and regulating health. A relatively new but popular program called the Low FODMAP diet, suggests reducing certain types of carbohydrates to improve digestion and improve healthy weight loss.
Based on the FODMAP diet, carbohydrates that irritate the stomach consist of Fermentable Oligo-saccharides, Di-saccharides, Mono-saccharides and Polyols, otherwise known as FODMAPs. A Low FODMAP diet has been shown to reduce gastrointestinal issues by alleviating symptoms like abdominal pain and discomfort, bloating, flatulence, constipation, and changing bowel habits. Reducing FODMAPs has also been shown to improve gastrointestinal discomfort for the sufferers of IBS as well as Colitis and Crohn's Disease.
Although the Low FODMAP Diet has reportedly been effective for many individuals, Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, suggests consulting a doctor before adopting any major lifestyle change. Doctor supervision is always encouraged.
