BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - August 16, 2016) - Finding a safe, effective and sustainable diet is a challenging task. Designing a personalized weight management plan is even harder, which has contributed to nearly 70% of Americans being obese or overweight. Seemingly every day, a new diet fad emerges, like the Mediterranean Diet, for instance. The Mediterranean Diet recommends high levels of olive oil, unprocessed cereals, legumes, fruits and vegetables, along with moderate amounts of fish and dairy. Wine and non-fish meat products are discouraged.
While the Mediterranean Diet is effective for some individuals, it is not ideal for everyone. It involves great discipline, consistency, and self-monitoring, all of which make it difficult for most people to follow. According to Dr. Nishant Rao, Diet Doc's professional medical expert, the Mediterranean Diet is not an ideal weight loss solution because it fails to address unique dietary needs and often leads to the loss of muscle instead of fat:
"The Mediterranean Diet is characterized by its high vegetable intake, moderate consumption of animal protein and high quality fats with minimal fruit consumption. These guidelines, while healthy, don't address the primary issues with weight gain, which still come down to individual diet macros and metabolism. While the guidelines for the Mediterranean Diet are healthy, we now know that saturated animal fat, and saturated vegetable fats like MCT and coconut are not unhealthy (as is viewed by the MD) and can actually be helpful especially in a ketogenic state. 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."
In contrast, Diet Doc offers individualized diet plans for everyone to ensure lean muscle preservation and optimization of body composition changes. As Dr. Rao further states, the Mediterranean Diet is "not even explicitly designed to optimize fat loss, but more as healthy lifestyle guidelines. The Mediterranean Diet also relies very heavily on carbohydrate calories, which for some overweight people with insulin resistance and blood sugar issues are best minimized."
