Diet Doc's Medically Supervised Diet Programs Make Ketogenic Diet Safer and More Efficient

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - August 10, 2016) - Obesity has become an epidemic, with nearly 70% of Americans obese or overweight due to unhealthy lifestyles and inactivity. For many overweight individuals, nutrition deficiency and lack of physical exercise leads to health issues like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. This makes weight loss an urgent need. Unfortunately, the majority of overweight people are unable to maintain weight loss for more than a year, according to the National Weight Control Registry.

Countless diet plans attempt to address this issue with the Ketogenic diet being one of the most popular options available. The Ketogenic diet proposes a diet high in fat, with just the right amount of protein and low amounts of carbohydrates in order to unlock weight loss. The goal is to change the way the body utilizes the energy from food.

The Ketogenic diet prompts the liver to convert fat into fatty acids and a substance known as "ketone bodies". While ketone bodies can be an indication of weight loss, they can also be a warning sign of serious issues like diabetes, which is why diets should ideally be supervised by a medical professional. Doctor-supervised weight loss plans monitor patients for not only successful diet results, but also signs of other health problems.

During a typical supervised diet, patients require 1-2 weeks to keto-adapt. Medically supervised diet programs often involve adding vitamin B12, as well as other supplements, to prevent negative symptoms like headaches and muscle cramping. As a result, the diet becomes more balanced and existing health needs are addressed in order to jumpstart weight loss.

All Diet Doc programs provide a doctor-supervised diet plan that is customized for all patients. Instead of forcing patients to adopt harmful dietary practices with no prior medical knowledge, Diet Doc consults with patients to provide a detailed weight loss plan based on their nutritional needs and medical history.
