New York, NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
After a very public struggle to lose weight, star of hit reality t.v. show The Real Housewives of New Jersey, Lauren Manzo has lost 35 pounds. In an interview with US magazine, Manzo tried a few but saw no success with the more popular weight loss programs like Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and L.A. Weight Loss, and decided to undergo lap band surgery in September of 2011. And although the method is found to be a success for the reality t.v. star, she took a big risk by getting the surgery. A report published by ABC News in the spring of 2011 states that more than half of the patients who undergo lap band surgery had at least one re-operation due to complications or device malfunction. Supervisory medical officer for the FDA, Herbert Lerner M.D. stated that “surgery itself has risks, including death, and those risks are heightened for people who are obese.”
Most will agree that weight loss surgery is an absolute last-resort for people who are struggling to lose weight, but the option is not available to anyone. According to the FDA, lap band surgery is only approved for those with a BMI of 40 and over or 35 with at least one health condition related to their obesity. The report goes on to list a number of risks and side-effects that can include: abdominal pain, vomiting, difficulty swallowing, moving of the band through the stomach wall, leaking of the band and many others. In fact, a good number of people require another operation to reposition, replace or remove the gastric band sometime during their life due to complications or because they have not lost weight according to Lerner.
In an effort to help those who suffer the same weight loss struggle as Lauren Manzo, Diet Doc is offering a natural hCG weight loss program that is customized for each person. This medically-supervised program can last from 23 days to up to 6 weeks and is monitored by an integrative team of doctors, nutritionists, nurses and health advisors. Each patient is given personalized attention throughout the program to ensure its safety as well as its effectiveness. “We offer a great natural alternative to invasive surgery that has little to no side effects. Most of our patients even report seeing considerable results in just two weeks,” says Dr. Rao, Medical Director for Diet Doc.
The diet plan follows a ketogenic diet, in which the body is put into its natural state of burning fat as a source of fuel. The diet is even popular among bodybuilders and trainers because it targets only fat and preserves muscle. Diet Doc has made the program easy to follow with daily doses of hCG and allows well over 1000 calories a day with a wide variety of food options.The hCG hormone plays a crucial role in the diet because it triggers the brain into converting fat into energy and is also known to suppress the appetite. This 50-year-old weight loss solution has no known side effects and has even been approved by “America’s doctor” Dr. Oz himself, according to his published report. “We have one of the only medical hCG programs in the U.S. and almost all of our products are pharmaceutical-grade, including the supplements, which require a prescription. We work to make our modified version of the hCG diet as effective as possible not only by offering the best weight loss products but by providing the best care possible,” says Julie Wright, Founder and CEO for Diet Doc.
