Diet Doc Warns That Very-Low Calorie Dieting Can Lead to Nutritional Deficiencies

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - Often used among new recruits and military inductees to reach weigh-in goals, the Military Diet is a very low-calorie, protein rich diet with very small portions which are intended introduce a caloric deficit, jumpstart an individual's metabolism and shed excess fat. With a commitment of only three days per week, The Military Diet clams to offer rapid weight loss results of up to 10 pounds per week without the need for exercise or dietary supplements. The remaining four days of the week should consist of a healthy and balanced diet, yet without caloric restriction. The Military Diet has recently become popular due to its cost effectiveness, quick weight loss and short duration. Recently, many individuals have been attempting to find substitutions for certain elements of the diet, particularly substituting the grapefruit for ½ teaspoon of baking soda in 8 ounces of water on day one as grapefruit interferes with many medications.

The Military Diet should not be viewed as a permanent weight loss solution due to its extremely low caloric intake. However, very low-calorie diets in general can be effective in eliminating up to 10 pounds per week on a short-term basis. Diet Doc, a comprehensive medical weight loss program, cautions dieters that while losing weight quickly is indeed possible, many negative side effects can occur; which highlights the need for medically supervised weight loss programs which can help to replace lost nutrients and prevent diet-sabotaging hunger pangs as the result of a drastic reduction in calories.

Low-calorie, high-protein diets such as The Military Diet do not offer nutritionally balanced approaches to eating, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies and immediate weight gain soon after the diet has ended. Instead, Diet Doc offers affordable weight loss plans which assess the needs of each individual as they are more likely to result in short-term as well as long-term, sustainable weight loss. Caloric intake on a Diet Doc diet plan typically varies between 850 and 1250 per day and patients typically report no hunger and increased energy rather than fatigue. Diet Doc's team of doctors, nutritionists and coaches also review the medical history of each patient to avoid any interference with existing prescriptions and take into account any medical conditions that may be negatively impacted by sudden caloric deficiency or increased protein intake.
