Dr. Rao, medical director of Diet Doc HCG Weight Loss explains; one of the problems with modern diets is that they forget the scientific principles that were long ago established relating to what happens when a person suddenly reduces their caloric intake. For example, if a person cuts calories from their normal diet they initially lose a lot of water weight, but no fat. The reason for this failure of diets to initially induce fat loss is that chronically high insulin levels preclude the release of fat from storage in the body. Since insulin blocks the release of fat, the body first sheds water and burns up any protein reserves, which results in a quick reduction of body weight, but virtually no fat loss. Hyperinsulinemia, or too much insulin, is also responsible for exaggerated hunger and craving for fat and sugar.
Diet Doc HCG Weight Loss is different than other weight loss programs. HCG doctor explain to patients that other metabolic adjustments that the body makes in response to lower caloric intake can make it impossible to lose weight. People respond to a drop in food intake by immediately lowering an enzyme which converts the inactive T4 thyroid hormone into the active T3 thyroid hormone. Reduction of the T3 levels cause conservation of calories, meaning that the body automatically burns fewer calories at rest. So, the minute a person cuts calories, whether they are from carbohydrates, proteins, or fats, they turn down the rate at which calories are burned.
HCG doctor goes on to explain that although many people experience life-long weight problems, many more find themselves beginning to gain weight as they age. The normal changes of aging that make it easy for people to gain weight include alterations in endocrine hormone levels. Besides changes in thyroid and insulin levels already mentioned, changes in levels of cortisol, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and growth hormone can all favor fat gain as we age. Without addressing these complex hormone changes, weight loss can prove to be quite difficult.
Many diets also fail to recognize that when people eat can be as important as what you eat. In comparison to people who ate breakfast twice per week of less often, those eating breakfast everyday had a 35-50% lower rates of developing insulin resistance syndrome and obesity. Similar disparities were seen between those who consumed their last calories prior to 6:30 pm compared to increased obesity rates in those consuming calories after that time.
Diet Doc HCG Weight Loss knows the reasons we gain weight are very complex. Simply cutting calorie intake will not likely lead to long term fat loss. It is critical that people work with a medically supervised weight loss program and with providers who understand the complexities of weight loss.
After analyzing a proven scientific diet to help lose weight, HCG doctors created HCG weight loss program that is not only safe but effective too.
