Diet Doc hCG Diet & Weight Loss announces their new gluten-free diet plans as part of their program in recognition of National Celiac Disease Awareness Month.
This disease, also known as gluten intolerance, affect 1 in 133 Americans.1 Those who are gluten intolerant are unable to process wheat, barley or rye products found primarily in breads and pastas which causes damage to the small intestine and will result in the inability to absorb nutrients which will eventually lead to a vitamin deficiency and cause long-term health issues.
Recent studies have also shown that obesity and a high BMI may be prominent in Celiac patients. Doctors at the Celiac Disease Center of Columbia University concluded that while on a gluten free diet, over 50% of obese Celiac patients lost weight and saw considerable changes in their BMI.
Diet Doc’s customized weight loss plans typically combines hCG treatments with a modified ketogenic diet that has little to no gluten protein. To accommodate their Celiac disease, patients substituted their suggested source of carbohydrates with more fibrous fruits and vegetables and increased the intake of essential vitamins.
The hCG diet is quickly becoming a popular diet plan due to its apparent effectiveness. Diet Doc has redefined what hCG is by modernizing their diet from the 500-calorie original Simeon’s version to a more achievable 1200 calories with added supplements to their overall plans. Patients from all walks of life claim that Diet Doc’s programs are a quick weight loss solution with lasting results.
