Diet Doc Emphasizes Nutritional Balance for Macrobiotic Dieters

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - The Macrobiotic diet approach has been around for centuries and is based upon a fundamental belief that whole, living food possesses an abundance of energy. Most notably, where the food was farmed, and how it has been prepared, directly impacts its energetic properties, which are transferred to the body. The Macrobiotic diet is principally vegetarian, and requires accessibility to locally grown, organic foods. Macrobiotic dieters must adhere to a primarily whole grain diet including, oats, rye, brown rice, buckwheat and barley. Leafy green vegetables, sea vegetables, tofu and legumes are also included. Seafood, nuts, seeds and fruit are only consumed 1-2 times per week and red meat, poultry and dairy products, and processed foods are completely eliminated.

The main goal for most individuals following a macrobiotic diet is to maintain a healthier lifestyle, rather than produce rapid weight loss. In fact, the diet has been shown to improve cardiovascular health as well as prevent or control diabetes and while some degree of weight loss or weight maintenance is highly likely, Dr. Rao of Diet Doc -- a medical weight loss program -- finds that, "The guidelines of The Macrobiotic diet, while healthy, may not address the primary issues with weight gain which still come down to individual diet macros and metabolism." Many critics of the diet cite nutritional deficiencies from low vitamin D and B-12 levels to low protein intake. Such changes in low-protein intake for example could potentially result in lost muscle mass as maintaining moderate to high muscle mass is key in the fat burning process. Dr. Rao explains, "When dieting, adequate protein intake is essential to prevent muscle loss and often when general guidelines are followed, this falls short and some of the weight being lost is actually muscle and not fat." Diet Doc's program works by ensuring that lean muscle is preserved as opposed to simply reducing protein intake. This is accomplished through Diet Doc's doctor-supervised, unique diet plans which address any physical health factors which may impact an individual's ability to lose weight while ensuring that one's diet is properly balanced.
