New York, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
Many medical studies have shown the link between obesity and high blood pressure, also known as hypertension. Over the past 20 years there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States and rates continue to increase. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention an estimated 68 million American (about 1 in 3) has high blood pressure. As body weight increases, blood pressure rises, which, over time will lead to many complicated problems such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, certain types of cancer and sometimes death.
To help alleviate this growing epidemic, Diet Doc has created weight loss solutions for those with high blood pressure. Their diet plan follows a ketogenic diet, a diet similar to the Atkins low-carb diet but instead has a major focus on super foods and lean healthy proteins. Our diet is designed to basically lower glucose levels which puts the body in a state of ketosis which in turn will raise metabolism, forcing the body to use fat as a
source of fuel instead of sugar. A perfect process for those who are diabetic and/or have high blood pressure, states Dr. Rao, Medical Director for Diet Doc.
Diet Docs unique weight loss program includes a full assessment by a team of doctors, nutrition counselors and nurses. They then determine the right amount of hCG for each patient as well as a personalized diet plan. Their programs can last anywhere from
three weeks to a couple of months. They also offer pre-made diet foods and shakes that complement their diet plans as their diet does have several restrictions. Diet Docs patients claim that the diet is overall easy to follow, with little to no hunger and find that they experience quick weight loss, some losing 14 pounds in two weeks.
Diet Docs unlimited support for their patients is what really makes their programs stand out from the rest. They encourage their patients to contact them the moment they feel uncomfortable and guide them accordingly. Their goal is to help their patients not only lose weight but to make healthy and permanent life changes. With only 1 in 2 Americans controlling their high blood pressure, there are still many that need guidance to make the right choices in order to life a healthy life. Diet Docs weight loss programs prove to be a thoughtful and real solution to this seemingly endless problem.
