Diet Doc Warns Dieters of Potential Nutritional Deficiencies in Fad Diet -- Fit for Life

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - September 05, 2016) - Based upon the premise that consuming certain foods at the same time is the real weight gain culprit, the Fit for Life diet requires no exercise or calorie counting. The diet's creators, Harvey and Marilyn Diamond believe that individuals gain weight due to eating protein-rich foods and foods high in carbohydrates within the same meal. Unlike most diets which require caloric deficits, low-carb consumption or moderate exercise, The Fit for Life diet is unique in its belief that enzymes which digest proteins tend to interfere with enzymes which digest carbohydrates. Due to this, these two foods must not be eaten together in one meal but rather separately. With the exception of fruit, which must be the only food consumed between waking time and noon, the diet program doesn't necessarily highlight many preferred foods such as, vegetables, proteins or heart healthy oils. Nor does it emphasize the need for fiber, vitamins or any other nutrients and dairy must be eliminated from the diet completely.

Since its creation in the 1980s, the effectiveness of the Fit for Life diet and its restrictions on certain food combinations has remained relatively unsupported by scholarly and dietary research in the area of weight loss. The Fit for Life diet also appears to have little to no guidelines as to what types of food are allowed, how often one should eat and how much should be consumed as far as portions are concerned. In addition to this, since dairy products such as, cheese, milk and yogurt must be removed from the diet, researchers have been concerned that individuals on the diet may not receive the necessary calcium required for strong bones and healthy metabolic function.

Dr. Rao, Medical Director of the comprehensive medical weight loss program, Diet Doc, seeks to ensure that his team of experts provide nutritionally balanced rapid weight loss programs that take into account the unique dietary needs of each individual, "Any lasting weight loss solution has to take into consideration each individual's health condition, risk factors, nutritional needs, lifestyle, age and gender." Many individuals remain unaware of their nutritional deficiencies, particularly with regards to their lack of calcium or vitamin D until certain health conditions such as osteoporosis begins to develop. All nutritional needs should be evaluated by a medical professional before embarking on a diet such as Fit for Life to achieve weight loss without health-related consequences. Dr. Rao adds that, "Our team is able to achieve rapid weight loss results by knowing the issues each person is faced with as an individual and meeting those issues head on."
