Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Warns Dieters of the Consequences of Crash Dieting This Holiday Season

HONOLULU, HI--(Marketwired - November 22, 2016) - Over the holidays there is a tendency for many individuals to opt for very rapid weight loss options at any cost. One example is the "Master Cleanse" which consists of maple syrup, lemon, and cayenne pepper mixed with water. This crash diet option involves drinking a combination of these ingredients while fasting from all meals for up to two weeks. Diet Doc's Medical Director, Dr. Nishant Rao has researched the Master Cleanse and other crash diets noting that, "Weight loss is rapid and people will often use these approaches as a way to shed pounds quickly. However, when objectively looking at such diets though the macro lens, they tend to provide zero protein, zero fat and a very small amount of carbohydrates in the form of a rapidly absorbed sugar." Dr. Rao warns that, "When zero protein is consumed, the body will rapidly break down its muscle mass." This contributes to a significant fraction of weight being lost.

Essentially, Dr. Rao explains that this type of weight loss is an illusion. "The weight loss goal should be to work on losing fat primarily with no muscle loss. This results in a leaner version of the individual along with an improved metabolism." Furthermore, with regards to the cleansing effects of crash dieting, and their popularity after binging on holiday meals, Dr. Rao has found that, "There isn't anything inherently cleansing about starving for 10 days with zero protein and zero fat." Diet Doc recommends that any diet provide enough protein to prevent muscle loss or fat loss will likely come back as metabolism gets sacrificed in the process. Diet Doc individually calculates protein needs for every patient based on height, weight, age, and activity level. For individuals interested in safe and quick weight loss, their team of experts monitor 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.
