Dr. Nishant Rao of Diet Doc Warns Against Medically Unsupervised Low-Calorie Dieting to Reach Weight Loss Goals

CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - November 05, 2016) - The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, advises that very low-calorie diets (VLCD's) should not be performed on one's own and requires close monitoring from professionals who are trained in medical weight loss. Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc also supports this finding stating that, "Everyone does not fit into the same template for weight loss, and any lasting weight loss solution has to take into consideration each individual's health condition, risk factors, lifestyle, age and gender."

Dr. Rao believes that low calorie diets such as the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet, the Cabbage Soup Diet or the SlimFast Diet will tend to cause more weight loss, however he states 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 through a process sometimes referred to as adaptive thermogenesis." He continues, "As body mass is lost via caloric restriction, the metabolic rate slows down in response." This consequence must be considered and compensated for especially for very low calorie diets. Periods of low calorie dieting must be cycled with periods of metabolic recovery where calories and especially carbs are normalized and increased to counter the adaptive response by the body. For most individuals, their tolerance for low calorie dieting is between 4-12 weeks. Diet Doc monitors progress closely, and cycles its low-calorie dieting with periods of metabolic recovery using very specific diet macros to allow for long term ongoing fat loss with minimal weight loss plateaus.
