Diet Doc's Dr. Rao Analyzes Popular But Harmful 'Alkaline Diet,' Encouraging Doctor-Supervised Weight Loss

DOVER, DE--(Marketwired - November 08, 2016) - With over 36% of Americans battling obesity, serious health issues like heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer have become common. There over over 3 million cases of type 2 diabetes in the U.S. every year, for instance, and food addiction, one of the leading causes of unmoderated weight gain, remains a prevalent issue. Scientific evidence consistently indicates that food addiction makes it practically impossible for people to abstain from certain types of food or reduce consumption, even when faced with evident health risks. Many people simply lose control and are unable to moderate the consumption of tasty but fattening foods like sweets and processed snacks. However, even modest weight loss (10% or less), potentially through the moderation of certain types of food, can make a huge difference in controlling or preventing obesity while promoting overall health.

The Alkaline Diet involves regulating certain foods that can, reportedly, affect the pH or acidity levels of the human body. It discourages certain foods like meat, dairy, eggs, refined sugar, wheat and processed foods, which enhance acid production and are therefore viewed negatively. Alcohol and caffeine are generally prohibited as well. Other types of food like fruits, vegetables, soybeans, tofu, nuts, seeds and legumes are considered "alkaline-promoting" and therefore encouraged. The focus of the Alkaline Diet, overall, is to reduce bodily acidity and promote alkalinity, which supposedly helps reduce body fat.

Dr. Rao, the resident medical expert at Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, discourages patients from adopting the Alkaline Diet, stating that it is not scientifically sound. According to him, "the body maintains an extremely narrow pH window, with blood pH ranging between 7.35 and 7.45," which means that consuming highly alkaline foods does not affect the body's natural pH regulation processes. Dr. Rao furthers, "If you consumed a high amount of acidic food, your body would offset it by buffering blood pH so that the actual levels never change."

Because the nuances of popular diets like the Alkaline Diet can be confusing, for experienced dieters as well as new ones, it is recommended to consult a doctor before adopting a new diet or major lifestyle change. Diet Doc offers doctor-supervised weight loss programs and diet consulting to help patients safely lose weight fast.

LDN, one of many solutions available at Diet Doc, also increases dopamine levels to improve mood, reduces inflammation, and breaks the cycle of craving carbs and sugar to balance brain chemistry. Medical weight loss, unlike popular but unregulated diets like the Alkaline Diet, has been shown to be effective when supervised by a health professional and customized to an individual's dietary needs, according to Diet Doc's resident medical expert Dr. Rao.
