Diet Doc Announces Their New Version of the Hormone Diet Plan to Target, Attack and Burn Fat Without Dangerous Side Effects

Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

Diet Doc understands that many of their clients have difficulty sticking with their intentions to lose weight and their dieting attempts could be easily sabotaged by the temptation to indulge in unhealthy, fatty foods. Including hormone diet treatments into their programs as a way to control the appetite not only allows patients to see fast and effective weight loss results, it also allows patients to stick with their diet and begin forming healthy habits to maintain their weight for the future.

Earlier versions of the hormone diet plan consisted of practitioners encouraging a dangerously low, 500-calorie per day meal plan. Diet Doc saw the encouraging weight loss results that stemmed from utilizing this natural hormone, but also saw the need for updated research in order to allow patients to achieve these results without requiring a dangerous caloric intake. Unlike other hormone diet plans, Diet Doc was successful in modernizing their research to meet current health and medical standards and now, their patients are able to see the same weight loss results while consuming a caloric intake of almost double that of the original programs without suffering dangerous side effects.

Diet Docs medical weight loss program combines the smart nutritional food concepts behind such diets as the Paleo diet, gluten free diets, protein diets, low carbohydrate diets, the Atkins diet, and no carbohydrate diets into a new approach combined with prescription hormone diet treatments to generate safe weight loss of up to 20 lbs. per month. By getting back to basics, freeing the liver of toxic chemicals, processed food, sugar and carbs, and adding prescription hormone diet treatments and supplements, the body will easily release weight and burn embarrassing fat rapidly.

While many weight management professionals recommend weight loss supplements, finding the supplement or treatment that is right for the individual patient requires attention to their particular cause of weight gain. With this in mind, Diet Doc created their personalized prescription hormone diet plans that consider the patients age, gender, health history, lifestyle and food preferences when choosing diet pills and weight loss supplements that will best aid clients in achieving their goals.

Because hormone diet treatments work best when following a healthy, low carbohydrate meal plan, patients will work closely with nutritionists to develop a meal plan suited to their personal needs. By incorporating the principles of the Paleo Diet that reduce carbohydrate intake, the body is encouraged to burn stored fat, instead of carbohydrates, for fuel. While Diet Doc recognizes the benefits in reducing carbohydrate intake for the low carb diet, they also encourage patients to consume lean proteins, fruits and vegetables to keep energy levels high throughout the day.

New patients will complete a health questionnaire and consult online with one of Diet Docs highly trained doctors. Although all patients will qualify for customized diet plans, many patients will qualify for Diet Docs hormone diet treatments. These natural hormone diet treatments work flawlessly with the tailor made diet plans to target and attack fat that has hidden itself deeply within the cells, forcing it into the bloodstream to be burned and quickly flushed from the system.

Diet Doc invites those who are struggling to lose that final 10-20 pounds to those who must lose 100 pounds or more to call today to schedule a free and confidential consultation.

Diet Doc Weight Loss is the nation’s leader with medical, weight loss offering a full line of prescription medication, doctor, nurse and nutritional coaching support.

Wright & Schulte LLC Files Another DePuy Pinnacle Hip Lawsuit Purporteding Risky Revision Surgery Needed Due To Failure of Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement

Columbus, OH (PRWEB) September 14, 2014

A new DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuit has been filed by Wright & Schulte LLC on behalf of a Franklin County, Ohio man who underwent hip surgery to remove a DePuy metal-on-metal hip implant. The metal-on-metal hip lawsuit filed against Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary, DePuy Orthopedics, Inc., states that the Ohio man was 40 years old when the Pinnacle Hip device was surgically implanted in his right hip. (Case No. 3:14-cv-02428-K) According to the hip implant lawsuit, the man underwent a revision surgery to remove the hip implant on December 10, 2013. After the surgery, the man began to have pain and tenderness in his right hip and groin that has not gone away, the Pinnacle hip lawsuit stated. This DePuy Pinnacle complaint, filed on July 7, 2014, is among the 6,212 DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits pending in multidistrict litigation in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas before Judge Ed Kinkeade. (In Re: DePuy Orthopaedics, Inc., Pinnacle Hip Implant Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2244)

The attorneys at Wright & Schulte LLC are currently representing plaintiffs in DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits from across the country. DePuy Pinnacle hip implant recipients may be eligible to file their own lawsuit if they have experienced elevated metal ion levels, chronic pain, metallosis, premature hip failure, or any other complication allegedly related to the medical device’s all-metal design. To learn more, or to arrange for a free legal consultation with an attorney at Wright & Schulte LLC, call 1-800-395-0795 or visit

The Ohio mans recently filed DePuy Pinnacle hip lawsuit purports that DePuy had received hundreds of complaints about the Pinnacle Hip medical device by the time he received his implant. The complaint accuses the DePuy and Johnson & Johnson of knowing that the DePuy Pinnacle hip device was defective, concealing the known defect from doctors and their patients, and misrepresenting the medical device as safe and effective. The DePuy Pinnacle complaint further contends that the defendants should have recalled the Pinnacle Hip before it was sold to the Ohio man. The DePuy complaint alleges that the man may need additional future surgeries and faces possible metal poisoning, bone loss, chronic pain, a decreased quality of life and other serious medical problems.

Johnson & Johnson stopped selling metal-on-metal and ceramic-on-metal hip replacement systems after the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) proposed changes in the way all-metal hip implant devices are regulated. The proposal called for makers of hip replacement systems to undergo the FDAs process of scientific and regulatory review that evaluates the safety and effectiveness of such high risk medical devices. Johnson & Johnson told Bloomberg that it also stopped selling the all-metal hip implants because sales in the U.S. and Europe had declined since 2007 after doctors began questioning the safety of the hip implants and patients began filing lawsuits. [, January 18, 2013] [, May 17, 2013]

According to the FDA, metal-on-metal replacement hip systems have a metal femoral head or ball, that rotates within a metal cup. The metal ball and the metal cup rub against each other during walking or running. This movement causes metal particles to wear off the device and fall into the space around the hip implant. Some of the metal ions from the all-metal implant or from the metal particles will enter an implant recipients bloodstream, according to the FDA. Over time, the metal particles can cause damage to bone or tissue surrounding the implant and joint. The FDA advises recipients of all-metal hip implants to have a blood test if they experience pain in the groin, hip or leg, swelling at or near the hip joint, or a limp or change in their walking ability, to determine whether they have excessive levels of metal ions in their blood. [

MetalonMetalHipImplants/ucm241604.htm, January 17, 2013]

Court records indicate that DePuy Pinnacle hip implant lawsuits pending under MDL 2244 contend that DePuys Pinnacle Hip device is designed differently than most hip replacement systems in that it uses a metal acetabular liner and a metal femoral ball. According to the lawsuits, the Pinnacle Hip forces metal to rub against metal with the full weight and pressure of the hip implant recipients body. The DePuy Pinnacle lawsuits contend that because of the alleged defective design of the medical device, hundreds of recipients have, or will be forced, to undergo surgeries to replace the failed hip implants. The contention of premature hip implant failure will be presented in the first Pinnacle bellwether trial that got underway this week in the U.S. District Court, Northern District of Texas. (Herlihy-Paoli v. DePuy Orthopaedics Inc., 11-cv-3590). The jury trial involves a lawsuit filed on behalf of a Montana woman who alleges that her DePuy Pinnacle hip implant failed prematurely due to the defective design. The complaint further alleges that the failure of the hip implant caused metal particles to enter her bloodstream. The DePuy Pinnacle lawsuit also said the woman had to undergo revision surgery to remove the all-metal hip implant.

Three Connecticut Fathers Launch Battle Against Sugary Soft Drinks with Their Own Protein Infused Water

Branford, CT (PRWEB) October 13, 2014

Three friends in Guilford, Conn., all fathers, shared a common concern about the state of Americas children: theyre too sedentary and because of that, theyre too fat. Citing figures from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that childhood obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years, and in 2012, more than one third of children and adolescents were overweight or obese, the three pooled their resources to develop trimino a sugar-free protein infused water a healthy alternative to sugary soft drinks.

After a soft launch last winter, this month marks the official launch of trimino, developed by Miami Bay Beverage Co., based in Branford, Conn. trimino protein infused flavored water is powered by seven grams of high quality whey protein and 100 percent of the Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamin B complex. Its light and refreshing with no sugar, no carbohydrates, no caffeine or lactose, and only 28 calories per 16-oz. bottle.

It sells for a suggested retail price of $ 2.49 to $ 2.99 and is available in more than 500 locations in 10 states. Stores in Connecticut include Krauszers and IGA Markets, CrossFit gyms, sports venues like Wonderland of Ice (Bridgeport) and Connecticut Sportsplex (North Branford), and several medical weight loss clinics.

trimino is the first entrant in the protein infused water space and is setting the pace for a new competitive market segment. Protein enhanced beverages, including trimino, are said to help slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream which helps to reduce hunger and make it easier for the body to burn fat, say company officials.

Gluten free, it contains a small amount of sucralose (also known as Splenda), and comes in delicious fruit flavors: Peach, Mixed Berry, Strawberry Lemonade, and Coconut Pineapple.

The current beverage landscape encourages excessive consumption of sugary drinks, said Guilford resident Casey P. Hoban, Sr., co-founder and COO of Miami Bay Beverage, and the father of three.

Beverage marketing seems to be at odds with the health of our children. We believe theres pent-up demand for a nutritionally productive protein drink with no excess calories, no sugar and no caffeine, said Hoban who helped finance the Vermont Hard Cider Company (Woodchuck Hard Cider).

trimino is that drink. Thousands of bottles have been sold and tens of thousands of samples have been given away and the overwhelming feedback is that trimino helps boost metabolism, curb appetite, and naturally increase energy without caffeine. It is a key component of the solution to childhood obesity.

Hoban is joined in Miami Bay Beverage by co-founder and Guilford resident Robert J. Leary, chief marketing officer, a retired healthcare software executive, a father of four, who has dedicated approximately 30 seasons to coaching and administering youth and high school sports including lacrosse, football and basketball.

Rounding out the trio of trimino founders is Guilford resident Peter J. Dacey, CEO, father of three and one of the founders of 454 Life Sciences Corporation which developed the technology that started a new revolution in DNA sequencing.

trimino was created by Miami Bay Beverage Company, 127 Cedar Street, Branford, CT 06405.

New Book Explores How to Improve Weight Loss Results Which Are Complicated By Physical, Mental Issues

Rock Hill, South Caroilina (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

Treatments for both physical and mental disabilities can sometimes counteract weight loss efforts, according to Dr. Nwe, an obesity medicine specialist and co-founder of the Ace Medical Weight Loss Center in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Her new book, Fat Me Not, is available in coming holidays.

Dr. Nwe has treated thousand of clients with obesity and obesity-related conditions, and personally counsels a growing number through her efforts at the Ace Center.

She reminds readers in her book that many common medications used to treat mental illness like depression and anxiety can directly effect a patients body weight.

Many times when a patient isnt in a balanced frame of mind, Dr. Nwe writes, they simply arent able to take care of themselves in a way that can truly help them lose weight.

Dr. Nwe covers several ways those with physical and mental disabilities can continue to slim down while maintaining their treatment, all with clear instructions on balancing the concerns of each condition.

Fat Me Not also looks at specific treatments, including patients who are treated with steroids, often used as muscle pain reliever with weight gain as a common side effect. Food allergies, sleep disorders and thyroid issues are also covered in her book.

As doctors we have to remember to treat the patient as a whole, Dr. Nwe explains, to always look at the big picture. Even great doctors can sometimes only see what falls into their narrow speciality. Its just human nature.

People trying to lose weight need a plan that factors in everything, she adds.

Nwes book hopes to reconcile that frequent disconnect, examining weight loss across a broad range of complicating lifestyle issues. Living with stress or even nursing a newborn, she says, are elements that may require appropriate adjustments to a patients weight loss strategy.

Dr. Nwe is a board-certified obesity medicine specialist who has appeared in several TV and radio segments promoting healthier lifestyles and more educated decision-making in terms of diet and lifestyle.

Energy Drink Market – History, Growth, Projections, Trends and the Uncertain Future of Energy Drinks

The energy drink market does not seem to stop its rapid growth. Energy drinks have made themselves a staple in certain sectors and has begun to branch successfully into several other niche sectors.

When a large number of consumers jumped into the energy drink craze, the big energy drink companies began producing more extreme (and some might say, more shameless) products. When another group voiced their opposition to what they saw as big companies pushing unhealthy drinks to the youth, the companies began producing alternatives that were marketed towards the health-conscious sector looking for natural and healthy benefits.
