Diet Doc's Dr. Rao Warns That the Baby Food Diet May Actually Sabotage Weight Loss Efforts

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - October 12, 2016) - Recently made popular among adult celebrities, the Baby Food Diet involves the consumption of approximately 14 jars of baby food in place of both breakfast and lunch with a sensible dinner to complete the day. These small meals do offer an alternative for those who struggle with portion control, and calories from the diet range from approximately 25-100 per jar, making this a very low-calorie option for individuals looking to achieve weight loss or weight maintenance goals.

Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc believes that the Baby Food diet and those that are similar actually work against weight loss. "Low calorie diets will tend to cause more weight loss, but there is a tradeoff, which is that over time, the body starts to adapt to the lower calorie intake by slowing down the number of calories it is burning per day." This is due to a process sometimes referred to as adaptive thermogenesis, whereas body mass is lost via caloric restriction, which prompts a metabolic slowdown in response. He continues, "This consequence must be considered and compensated for especially when it comes to very low calorie diets. Periods of low calorie dieting must be cycled with periods of metabolic recovery where calories and especially carbs be normalized and increased to counter the adaptive response by the body."

For most individuals, their tolerance for low calorie dieting is between 4 to 12 weeks varying greatly between individuals and to some extent determined by starting body mass. In fact, the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases advises that very low-calorie diets (VLCDs) should not be performed on one's own and require close monitoring from professionals. Diet Doc's medical weight loss programs address the body's needs by monitoring progress closely, with cycles of low calorie dieting combined with intermittent periods of metabolic recovery using very specific diet macros to allow for long term ongoing fat loss with minimal weight loss plateaus.
