Diet Doc Warns That Certain Nutrient-Dense Diets May Not Be Optimal for Weight Loss

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - September 05, 2016) - Due to the abundance of processed foods available and their impact on the growing rates of obesity, inflammatory diseases, autoimmune diseases and various other chronic conditions, new dietary regimens such as the Nutritarian diet, also referred to as the Eat to Live diet are gaining popularity with those who are proactive about consuming nutrient-dense foods. The basic daily guidelines of the Nutritarian diet are as follows: One large salad as one full meal, up to one cup of beans or legumes, one cup of steamed green veggies, 1 ounce of nuts or seeds (preferably with the salad), and at least three servings of fresh fruit. The six-week diet includes the removal of all meat and dairy products, as well as snacking between meals.

While high nutrient diets are very beneficial for weight loss, the Nutritarian diet is tailored more toward those looking to create a healthier lifestyle overall rather than to obtain weight loss goals. Dr. Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc -- a medical weight loss program advises, "The guidelines of the Nutritarian diet, while healthy, do not address the primary issues with weight gain which still come down to individual diet macros and metabolism." He continues, "Given the diet's emphasis on the removal of animal products, drastically lowering one's protein intake could potentially result in lost muscle mass as maintaining moderate to high muscle mass is key in the fat burning process." Dr. Rao explains further, "When dieting, adequate protein intake is essential to prevent muscle loss and often when such guidelines are followed, this falls short and some of the weight being lost is actually muscle and not fat."

Research has shown that while many existing, nutrient dense diets provide health benefits, dietary approaches and their effectiveness for health and weight loss goals vary based upon the individual. It is difficult to know which type of diet plan is best without taking into consideration all health factors. The reduction or elimination of any nutrient (including protein) could have a negative health impact, why is why Diet Doc's programs work by creating balanced diets which preserve lean muscle as opposed to simply reducing protein intake. For individuals looking to both lose weight and create a healthier lifestyle, Diet Doc offers specific, customized nutrition plans, cookbooks, dietary supplements and one-on-one guidance by weight loss experts to ensure that body composition changes are optimal for each individual.
