Diet Doc's Medical Director Finds Insulin Resistance to Be a Key Factor in Weight Gain

CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - October 13, 2016) - Diet Doc, a nationally recognized medical weight loss program has now found it critical to focus on net carbohydrate consumption along with glycemic indexes in order to address the issue of insulin resistance, given that this is a very common scenario for many people who struggle with weight loss. Medical Director of Diet Doc, Dr. Nishant Rao, states that, "A big focus, and often defining characteristic of many fad diets such as the ketogenic diet is the regulation of sugar (or more broadly speaking, carbohydrate content). Sometimes expressed as percentages, or as actual grams, low carb or low sugar dieting can have a profound impact on several hormones which can negatively impact the individual's ability to lose weight efficiently."

One of the theories regarding obesity, the insulin hypothesis, is driven by an inability to metabolize sugar and carbohydrates correctly. Dr. Rao's research has lead him to believe that, "This leads to an increased rate of fat storage, thus leading to an individual becoming overweight and/or obese." He continues, "When an excess of carbs, especially quickly metabolized carbs (like pure sugar or highly processed refined carbohydrates) is consumed it can lead to a condition called insulin resistance. This is where the cells of the body have stopped 'listening' to the signal from the insulin hormone and therefore do not correctly process or metabolize carbohydrates which instead get converted to fat."

For many individuals, consistent dietary changes over time can have the ability to reverse the negative metabolic trends and put people in a better position to lose fat. However, Dr. Rao suggests that, "Diets where carb restriction is the only focus without any guidelines on specific macros in grams for not only carbohydrates, but also protein and fat won't address the insulin resistance issue as effectively." Due to this understanding, Diet Doc has created new, innovative diet plans which allow for the moderate consumption of healthy carbs which provide energy, help to balance hormones and provide satiety while still resulting in a loss of up to 20 pounds per month for patients who commit to their programs.
