Everyone knows they can't eat a 12,000 calorie Michael Phelps diet and stay healthy, but what about when one is counting calories, eating healthy and doing all the right things, yet not getting the weight loss results they want? hCG Treatments / Diet DOc weight loss has addressed that very issue.
Adequate vitamin and mineral intake plays an important role in optimal health and with much of the food grown in nutrient-depleted soil, people aren’t receiving the proper amount of vitamins and minerals from their vegetables and fruits. Because of this, dietary supplements have now become vital to people’s health and well-being.
A study on soil-depletion and its effects on crops conducted by Donald Davis at the University of Texas and published in the 2004 Journal of the American College of Nutrition revealed that “reliable declines” in the amount of protein, calcium, phosphorus, iron, riboﬂavin (vitamin B2) and vitamin C. Other studies reported by the Organic Consumers Association state that the average vitamin levels in vegetables dropped anywhere between 19 to 37 percent. With the declining state of crops grown conventionally and organically, supplements are especially needed to support overall health and weight loss as well. A deﬁciency in key nutrients can lead to weight gain and obesity amongst a number of other health conditions.
hCG Treatments / Diet Doc now offers their new line of prescription-strength supplements to their patients. Their successful hCG weight loss programs make these key supplements a portion of their overall diet plan. The program uses hCG hormone treatment for only a fraction of the time and also follows a ketogenic diet through the duration of the program which basically consists of green leafy vegetables, lean protein, medium-chain triglyceride fat and supplemented with suggested vitamins and minerals. Each person varies with what their body needs so Diet Doc also created a comprehensive health assessment questionnaire to determine what each patient’s health strengths and weakness are and make suggestions from there. This health assessment is offered as a free option to their patients and includes a comprehensive report that details the cause and effect of their health conditions and suggested vitamins. This report is only used as a tool and advises all patients to consult with their physician before taking any supplement.
"In order to get the best weight loss results possible, one must identify and remove obstacles to that weight loss. That is exactly what our new questionnaire and line of supplements can do," explains Dr. Rao, Medical Director.
hCG Treatments / Diet Doc’s weight loss programs offer more than just temporary weight loss solutions. Their programs work to change the body’s composition as well as change eating behaviors. They strive to help their patients make permanent health changes by ﬁnding the underlying cause of weight gain and shedding light on it. And with their new line of prescription-strength supplements they offer, their program is sure to meet the nutritional needs that most people are now lacking.
