hCGTreatments / Diet Doc announces an affordable hCG weight loss plan that is considered to be a preventative measure against men’s top heath issues.
Diet Doc has created a weight loss program for men by incorporating essentials foods and supplements for normal metabolism and hormone production. The program comes in response to the recent report released by the Center for Disease and Control on obesity rates in the U.S. The report listed a total of 78 million adults as being obese and 37.5 million of that number are men aged 20 and over. Also listed are the health conditions that can come with obesity which include: hypertension, type 2 diabetes, stroke and certain types of cancer, all of which are preventable.
Diet Docs weight loss program puts a focus on mens health through the combination of a supervised ketogenic diet, popularized by bodybuilders, with hCG treatments. And, although hCG is a hormone found only in pregnant women, it is found to kick-start testosterone production in men. In fact, the hormone is so effective that bodybuilders use hCG not for weight loss, but to restart their own testosterone production.
Diet Doc mens weight loss program uses foods and supplements that target the top health issues men face today. With heart disease, cancer, stroke and diabetes listed consistently in the top ten by the CDC as the leading causes of death in males in the U.S., a healthy diet as well as proper supplementation is what seems to be the best solution for preventative measures. Men tend to be less proactive about preventative health measures and less diligent about maintaining their health than women. But nutritional supplements can help men avoid many chronic conditions, states Dr. Rao, Medical Director for Diet Doc. The program incorporates L-carnitine and fish oil, both of which are popular among the health and fitness communities for their cardiovascular benefits. L-carnitine is found to play an important role in preventing fatty buildup, especially in the heart and liver and also keeps blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in check.
Other elements of the mens weight loss program include foods that are high in antioxidants, lean protein for energy, MCT oil as a fatty source and fibrous fruits. All the elements of the program, when combined into a daily routine, create a chemical reaction in the body that produces ketones. This compound is an alternative energy source for the brain and the body produced in the liver from the breakdown of fatty acids in the absence of sugars (usually found in complex carbohydrates). The ketogenic diet that is used in the program is a low-carbohydrate, low-glycemic diet which puts the body into this ketogenic state. This diet is perfect for men because it preserves muscle and uses stored fat as a source of energy.
Diet Doc identified the advantages that the hCG diet has on men and created a weight loss plan around it. They even found that most men on their program are able to lose up to one pound a day which is almost double the estimated amount for women.
Their increasing number of patients are primarily women, however, their specialized diet plans are quickly gaining popularity among men. Julie Wright, Founder and CEO of Diet Doc says, most weight loss programs like Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers focus heavily on womens weight loss through celebrity endorsements but we welcome everyone and want to make both men and women feel comfortable about coming to us to help them meet their weight-loss goals.
