Diet Doc's Dr. Rao Reports that Liquid Detoxes Can Result in Muscle Loss

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - October 27, 2016) - As many dieters are turning to detox or flush drinks to achieve their weight loss goals, there are currently a multitude of detox drink recipes which claim to cleanse the digestive system and liver by flushing toxins from the body. Dr. Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc believes that there are a couple of big issues with this approach. "The first issue is the premise itself, that detoxing is something which we can enhance with juices and that it has an impact on weight loss." An April NYT article did a thorough job covering the fact that there is no actual physiological impact of drinking detox juice and that it doesn't cause your body to burn more fat (which is the only one requirement for fat loss). Though detoxing via various fruit juices is supposed to 'cleanse the liver' or 'flush the system'. Dr. Rao says, "The fact is that all these claims are based on false premises which have been debunked." He continues, "Yes, individuals will lose 'weight' but when we're talking about dieting we always mean fat loss with minimal muscle loss."

Weight loss occurs via detoxing because liquid dieting causes muscle loss due to the lack of protein provided. Dr. Rao suggests that, "To lose fat, the simple solution is to eat enough protein for muscle preservation, burn carbohydrates through activity and limit fats to create a caloric deficit. The juicing and detox diets are not recommended because they cause a false sense of success by wasting muscle and crash metabolism in the process."

Medical weight loss program, Diet Doc, instead offers solutions for weight loss that can be accomplished without deprivation and potential muscle loss. Diet Doc's team of medical experts have determined that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to dieting, which is why their doctor consultations review all the health history of all patients and provide personalized diet plans for rapid weight loss based on age, gender, lifestyle, health history and weight loss goals. Caloric intake typically varies between a healthy 850 and 1250 per day in addition to various medications which are available to combat emotional eating, mood, stress and hunger. Thus, Diet Doc's patients typically report increased energy and no hunger, unlike what is normally experienced within the average detox diet plan.
