BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - March 29, 2017) - The 8-Hour Diet, created by David Zinczenko tries to utilize a simple diet concept referred to as 'the feeding window.' The diet limits eating to within an 8-hour period which then followed by a 16-hour fasting window within a 24-hour period. The theory is based around intermittent fasting, which is a popular diet technique based on the premise that the human body runs optimally after a period of rest and repair in which the gut is not digesting food. Calorie counting is not adhered to on this diet, though Zinczenko does suggest that portion size should be controlled. There are no forbidden foods on the diet and aside from consuming low-calorie drinks, an individual can eat whatever they choose as long as it remains within their 8-hour window. Also permitted but not required is Zinczenko's 8-minute fat burning exercise program.
Diet Doc's Medical Director, Dr. Nishant Rao finds that the diet shares some common ground with effective weight loss program but still misses the mark. "Diet Doc uses 8-hour feeding windows and occasionally even 6 or 7 in order to decrease glucose and fat utilization during the fasting window," states Dr. Rao. "However only relying on the feeding window is not a reliable way to decrease body fat in a sustainable way, as there are many other variables which can affect fat loss." Dr. Rao is also troubled by the fact that the diet does not recommend that individuals give up unhealthy foods and places all of its success on the feeding window in order to achieve results. Dr. Rao continues, "Diet Doc's methods often adjust feeding windows in the context of specific macro targets to achieve long term weight loss."
While intermittent fasting does offer some benefits, the idea that one does not have to focus on healthy eating or useful exercise is misguided. Furthermore, poor eating habits within any period of time result in nutritional deficiencies that can cause intense hunger during the fasting period. This can of course lead to cheating and binge eating. Instead, Dr. Rao suggests that better meal planning and individualized weight loss plans have more of a lasting impact towards weight loss. At Diet Doc, his patients are seeing weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month by using practical weight loss strategies and medication that eliminate excess hunger and burn fat rapidly.
