BURLINGTON, VT--(Marketwired - December 20, 2016) - With obesity rates rapidly rising in the U.S. since the 1970s, obesity has become the second most preventable cause of death. More than one-third of American adults are considered obese. However, 77% of Americans say they are "trying to eat healthier" and 19% are actively dieting. There are many weight loss aids and programs to choose from, however, and it is not clear how effective many programs are, as the weight loss market has grown to over $64 billion. When it comes to weight loss, most people often focus on reducing fat and fatty foods. However, studies have shown that low-carb diets may be more efficient in promoting weight loss. Over the course of six months, individuals on a low-carb diet lost between 2.5 and 9 pounds more than those on a low-fat diet. The most popular low-carb diets include the Ketogenic Diet, which involves less than 50 grams of carbohydrates per day, and the Atkins Diet, which recommends 20 grams of carbohydrates per day during the induction phase and 80 to 100 grams per day in later phases.
In the short-term, low-carb diets seem to be more efficient in balancing weight and managing triglycerides. In the long-term, it is necessary to focus on low-fat diets as well in order to manage blood glucose, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, offers doctor-supervised diet plans and nutritional counseling that promote low-carb diets without reliance on fatty foods.
