Newly Launched Diet Doctor Organization Sets Up Professional Online Weight Loss Consultations

Share Article

Individuals can now establish personalized weight loss plans, free-of-charge, with an experienced nutritionist via e-mail.

In response to the large volume of information on dietary solutions piling up on the internet, a group of bloggers have developed, an online platform that aims to identify the scientific foundations underlying the dietary supplements and programs advertised by the weight loss industry. Their website promises to deliver objective information on the most effective weight loss alternatives and offers free-of-charge advice on nutrition and dieting.

Given the broad range of allegedly revolutionary weight loss supplements on the market, the Diet Doctor website has embarked on a journey to disentangle true information from false advertising. The organization’s purpose is to promote healthy dieting by spreading scientifically-grounded facts and offering free professional advice on nutrition to individuals via e-mail.

In this regard, users are asked to visit, fill in a short questionnaire and request advice from a trained nutritionist. Developers ensure complete data security, making certain each request is handled within 24 hours subsequently to submission. Given the absence of actual contact, the online advice should not be regarded as an insurmountable medical opinion, the website warns. However, if users give comprehensive and correct information, the organization’s experienced nutritionist may have more than enough to develop an effective dietary plan.

Daniel G., one of the minds behind the project says that the idea came from personal experience: “I noticed that when discussing diet supplements with friends or family, things usually started to heat up. Everybody had their own opinion and rarely did they come to an agreement on what the best weight loss solution is. All these ideas were most often based on information from TV or internet marketing. This made me wonder how effective these so-called miracle supplements are.

So I started investigating and I discovered a whole world of scientific research and double-blind clinical trials that offered objective data, which either rejected or supported various theories. I decided to start spreading this information and teamed up with other bloggers and nutritionists to develop objective articles and actually help people. The next step came naturally, as we decided we should speak to people directly, realizing that one weight loss solution will rarely fit everybody and that individualized programs are more effective.”
