MERIDIAN, MS--(Marketwired - September 27, 2016) - More than sixty percent of Americans are overweight or obese, battling excessive hunger between meals and attempting to ignore uncontrollable cravings for unhealthy food. Seemingly unexplainable emotional eating due to everyday stress is also quite common and the majority of overweight people are unable to maintain weight loss for more than a year.
These issues have given rise to fad diets and dieters who follow popular diets without fully understanding them. While some common diets may be beneficial, they can be easily misunderstood, which is why doctor consultation is absolutely crucial. Recently popular is the Military Diet, or the 3-day diet, which offers a "comprehensive" solution for busy people. It involves a strict diet plan for three days with four days off every week. Supposedly, the military diet has been effective in helping with short-term weight loss needs, like needing to lose several pounds to fit into a wedding dress. However, when unsupervised by a medical professional, the Military Diet, like any other weight loss plan, can be risky. In addition, dieting extensively for 3 out of 7 days every week doesn't guarantee long-term weight loss or encourage consistently healthy eating habits. It also requires an immense level of discipline, consistency, and self-monitoring, mostly because it is not custom-fitted to individual body types or nutritional needs.
After decades of research to perfect the best weight loss strategies, Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, has released a genetic testing program for obesity and weight loss inability. Genetic testing is conducted using a home test kit from a major genetic laboratory in La Jolla, California and assesses genetic factors associated with slow weight loss, nutrition/vitamin/supplement absorption, metabolic function and peak physical activity.
Following the genetic test, a trained doctor analyzes the results and recommends a diet plan, vitamins/supplements, metabolic function and best physical activity based on individual genetics. Results show that this method alone provides 2.5 times more weight loss than other methods.
Genetic tests also help patients uncover problems they may have always had but been unaware of like:
- Slow weight loss
- Inability to get within their normal body mass index (BMI)
- Reliance on various weight gain related medications
- Family history of, or direct experience with, conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol
Patients with such problems greatly benefit from genetic testing and find weight loss much more effective in the long run. After patients begin to understand their genetic predispositions and weight loss struggles, they can participate in a wide array of Diet Doc programs, all of which provide a doctor-supervised, customized diet plan. Instead of forcing patients to adopt harmful dietary practices with no prior medical knowledge, Diet Doc consults with patients to provide a detailed weight loss plan based on their nutritional needs and medical history. Losing weight with Diet Doc is safe, simple and affordable. Nutrition plans, exercise guidance, motivational support, and dietary supplements are all part of the package. More than 90% of Diet Doc patients lose 20 or more pounds every month.
