PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwired - August 30, 2016) - The Scarsdale diet is a 1970s based diet centered on the consumption of proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Portions break down into a diet which consists of: 43% protein, 22.5% fat and 34.5% carbohydrates. The Scarsdale diet claims an average weight loss of one pound per day by consuming lean meats, fruits and vegetables in three meals per day with no snacking in-between. It is similar to the highly popularized ketogenic or Atkins diet in that it is high in protein, is low in carbohydrates, is low in caloric intake and tends to lead to quick weight loss within a short amount of time.
Recommended for a period of only two weeks, the Scarsdale diet was created when the risks of eating a high protein diet had not been fully researched. Since that time, the Scarsdale diet and others like it have drawn criticism due to the stress that high protein dieting places on certain critical areas of the body. Though high protein diets have been shown to give dieters a feeling of fullness and satiety, Diet Doc -- a medical weight loss program, suggests that individuals be aware that a diet which is higher in protein may negatively impact those who are prone to kidney disease and osteoporosis. Medical weight loss program -- Diet Doc, strongly advises that a high protein diet be supervised in order to ensure that the body is receiving the proper nutrition and vitamins such as B-12 which will minimize any negative effects that can result as the body adapts to an increase in protein intake.
Also, low-calorie dieting, such as the Scarsdale diet can have negative consequences such as fatigue, headaches, and irritability as well as increase the desire to binge eat. It is important that such diets be monitored by medical experts to ensure that weight loss occurs safely and with no negative long-term consequences. Dr. Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc states that, "Weight loss goals in particular can be met by the development of specific nutrition plans, dietary supplements and guidance to ensure that body composition changes are optimal for each individual."
