Diet Doc Explains Why Fasting Diets Should Be Monitored by Medical Professionals

JACKSON, MS--(Marketwired - August 25, 2016) - The Fast Diet, also referred to as the 5:2 diet, works by intermittent fasting or very low-calorie dieting two days per week, while eating normally during the remaining five days. Creator of the Fast Diet, Dr. Michael Mosley, believes that when individuals intermittently fast, it tricks the body into thinking it may be experiencing a famine. The body then begins to switch to survival mode by burning long-stored fat for energy. Two days per week, one is to cut their caloric intake down to about 25 percent, with men able to consume just 600 calories, and 500 calories for women. The creators of the diet suggest that participants go as long as possible without eating during fasting days. However, during the remaining five days, there are no limitations on calories or restrictions on certain types of food.

Intermittent fasting has in fact been shown to have positive effects on weight loss as well as on metabolic syndrome. However, Diet Doc, a nationally recognized medical weight loss program, has researched the genetic processes involved with metabolism and have found that they are very adaptable and can change rapidly. Due to this reason, sudden calorie restriction causes genes to change their expression to "starvation mode" causing the body to become incredibly sparing about how it burns calories. The body attempts to instead conserve calories by storing everything as fat. This is why successfully losing weight by restricting caloric intake can be challenging. Starvation or crash dieting can be dangerous as these types of fasting diets can cause a loss in muscle mass, significant mood changes and declines in hormone levels. Those interested in fasting for weight loss purposes should always be closely monitored by doctors and coaches who are trained in the science of weight loss.
