Dr. Rao of Diet Doc Highlights the Potential Drawbacks of the Cabbage Soup Diet

CHARLESTON, WV--(Marketwired - October 20, 2016) - The 7-day Cabbage Soup Diet insists that individuals eat three servings of cabbage soup each day. It is considered a low-fat, high-fiber diet that should only be adhered to on a temporary basis in order to shed a few excess pounds. Supporters claim that the cabbage soup diet has helped them to lose up to 10 pounds within one week, however experts say that the diet's lack or protein as well as other fundamental nutrients can easily lead to a rebound in weight gain.

Nationally recognized medical weight loss program, Diet Doc, has found that diets with such limited calories often serve to sabotage weight loss goals rather than promote them due to the hunger pangs and cravings that most dieters experience. Dr. Nishant Rao, Medical Director of Diet Doc states that, "Low calorie diets will tend to cause more weight loss, but the tradeoff is 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." Dr. Rao has found that when 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 such as the cabbage soup diet.

Dr. Rao believes that, "Periods of low calorie dieting must be cycled with periods of 'metabolic recovery' where calories and especially carbs be normalized and increased to counter the adaptive response by the body." For most individuals, their tolerance for low calorie dieting is between 4 to 12 weeks varying greatly between individuals and to some extent determined by starting body mass. Diet Doc has conducted extensive research on the body's responses to low-calorie dieting and has monitored the progress of their patients closely, by combining cycles of low calorie dieting with intermittent periods of metabolic recovery using very specific diet macros to allow for long term ongoing fat loss, along with support via medications, supplements and phone support, resulting in weight loss results of up to 20 pounds per month.
