Diet Doc Warns Potential Dieters of Deceptive and False Weight Loss Advertisements

Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) January 16, 2015

Deceptive and false weight loss advertisements seem to become more common at the beginning of each year. This is the time when people tend to make resolutions and are searching for the easiest and fastest weight loss solutions, making them more susceptible to outlandish claims made by online weight loss companies.

According to the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Utah, the internet makes more diet products easily accessible to consumers, promising prospective dieters miracle weight loss with a few simple clicks of their mouse, but it has also increased the availability of worthless products making weight loss more in the form of a lighter wallet. In 2014, the BBB fielded over 22,000 complaints nationwide about worthless diet products and fitness services, with consumers spending over $ 2 billion without weight loss results.

A recent Consumer Reports survey of 3,000 Americans reveals that one in four people have used weight loss supplements. The same survey revealed that more than 90 percent were unsuccessful in losing and maintaining weight. Approximately one half of those surveyed reported side effects consisting of increased heart rate, digestive problems and jitteriness.

For this reason, Diet Doc has compiled tips to help consumers make a more educated and knowledgeable decision when purchasing diet products on line: Presents What To Know About Exercise and Stress Reduction

(PRWEB) February 18, 2015

Many people think of exercise primarily as a means of keeping weight off and staying physically healthy. While there is no question that staying physically active is an important way of keeping off excess pounds and lowering the risk of many health complications, exercise can help manage stress and improve emotional well being.

Why Stress Matters

Almost everyone experiences some level of stress, whether from the everyday demands of career and family, or from unexpected life changes, such as divorce or the death of a loved one. While a certain amount of stress is unavoidable, particularly when its caused by events outside ones control, ongoing stress can have serious health consequences over the long term. Research has shown that chronic, unrelieved stress can contribute to headaches and high blood pressure, along with heart disease, depression, and many other ailments. Ongoing stress can also aggravate existing conditions and cause people to turn to unhealthy habits. For instance, some people may overeat in response to stress, contributing to weight gain and obesity. Others may smoke, drink too much, or use drugs as a means of dealing with stress. By taking steps to address and control daily stress, one can reduce the likelihood of many of these health complications.

How Exercise Can Help

In the simplest terms, when the body feels good, the mind feels good, and exercise is one of the best ways to get an immediate body and mind boost. Stress affects the body and brain through increasing hormones like epinephrine and cortisol. A long term excess of these hormones can lead to sluggishness and fatigue, sleep disorders, and memory loss, in addition to a long list of physical ailments. Exercise can help manage stress because the hormones released during physical activity counter the negative effects of the hormones generated by stress, leading to better sleep, reduced stress and anxiety, and an overall reduction in the risk factors associated with stress.

Where to Start

Reducing stress through exercise doesnt necessarily require spending hours at the gym every day. Incorporating just 30 minutes of physical activity five or more days a week can lead to good results. The exercise choosen can be as simple as taking a brisk, 30-minute walk each day, or going for a bike ride after dinner. The key is to make sure that the exercise choosen is one that will be enjoyed. Incorporating an activity thats loved will make it more likely to keep it as part of a routine and ensuring that one will see long term results in stress relief.

Beyond the morning buzz: Coffee’s potential health benefits, from the March 2015 Harvard Heart Letter

Boston, MA (PRWEB) March 18, 2015

Coffee drinkers around the world savor the bitter brew on a daily basis. But are there any grounds for concern regarding coffee’s effects on the heart? On the contrary: the case for drinking coffee seems to be growing, reports the March 2015 Harvard Heart Letter. Coffee minus the cream and sugar is a nearly calorie-free beverage brimming with antioxidants. It also might ease artery-damaging inflammation and deliver a substance that helps the body regulate blood sugar.

“The evidence for the benefits of coffee consumption is even more convincing than it was five years ago, especially when it comes to preventing type 2 diabetes and reducing the risk of heart disease and stroke,” says Dr. Frank Hu, professor of nutrition and epidemiology at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Although caffeine is by far the most studied compound in coffee, the beverage is a complex brew that contains hundreds, if not thousands, of bioactive components. Among these are vitamins, minerals, and potent, plant-based anti-inflammatory compounds known as polyphenols. Most likely, it’s the combination of these substances, rather than caffeine itself, that confers coffee’s potential health benefits.

Caffeine, a mild stimulant, triggers a short-term rise in blood pressure and heart rate. While some coffee drinkers welcome the stimulant effect, others complain that caffeine causes daytime jitters and sleepless nights. Now, researchers acknowledge that a moderate amount of caffeine is fine for most people with heart disease as long as they don’t have a heart-rhythm problem.

“People develop tolerance to caffeine within a few days, so the effects cannot be extrapolated to the long term. Over time, caffeine does raise the resting metabolic rate and increase energy expenditure, albeit modestly, so it may actually turn out to be helpful in controlling body weight,” says Dr. Hu.

Diet Doc Announces In-House Survey that Reveals Amazing Weight Loss Results for Patients who Enhance their Diet Plans with Appetite Zap

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 15, 2015

More and more people throughout the country are turning to Diet Docs all-inclusive weight loss programs and reporting staggering weight loss success when enhancing their customized meal and snack plans with Diet Doc’s Appetite Zap. Patients report the rapid loss of pounds and inches in the hard to reach places, such as the belly, hips, thighs and buttocks within days of beginning the diet plans. In fact, in a recent in-house survey of over 20,000 actual Diet Doc clients, weight loss of 20 pounds or more per month is reported for those who added Appetite Zap to their daily regimen.

Diet Doc offers all-inclusive diet plans that include a staff of specially trained fast weight loss professionals, including doctors, nurses, nutritionists and coaches, who follow their patients progress until the last ounce of unwanted fat has been burned from their body.

Operating on the premise that everyone deserves to live a healthy, active life without the embarrassment and burden of carrying excess weight, the company continues their research to bring the most advanced, up to date and modern weight loss methods to their clients. And because they understand that eliminating carbohydrates can be difficult, the company enhances their nutritionist-designed meal and snack plans with powerful appetite suppressants, diet pills, prescription hormone treatments and fat burners, allowing their patients to comfortably and rapidly lose unwanted weight without between meal hunger, food cravings or fatigue.

When used in conjunction with their strategically designed and personalized meal and snack plans, this powerful fat burner eliminates fat four times faster than other diet products.

As the body ages, many noticeable changes occur. Women typically begin accumulating excess fat at the onset of menopause while men may develop a beer belly during mid-life. Many of these changes occur because the metabolism slows, calories are not burned as quickly and activity levels decline. Excess calories become stored as excess fat, typically gathering in the hips, thighs, belly and buttocks. And because Diet Doc believes that excess weight should not prevent anyone from enjoying good health, regardless of their age, they incorporated the powerful Appetite Zap to their stable of diet products.

Qualified patients will receive prescriptions for Diet Docs hormone treatments, diet pills and Appetite Zap, enabling them to see fat melting from their body four times faster than other diet products. This powerful combination intensifies the bodys ability to target, attack and release old, stored fat into the bloodstream to be quickly burned and flushed from the system.

Diet Docs diet plans include prescription hormone diet treatments, exclusive diet pills, appetite suppressants and powerful fat burners that will accelerate the rate at which patients see excess fat melting from their body while also eliminating loss of energy, food cravings and between meal hunger. This powerful combination signals the brain to seek out and attack fat that has become comfortably and dangerously stored around the internal organs, in the belly, hips, thighs, buttocks and underarms. Patients typically begin noticing pounds and inches dissipating within days of following the guidance of the Diet Doc professionals. In fact, recent results of an in-house survey of over 20,000 actual clients revealed that the majority of patients lost 20 pounds or more per month.

The company has built its reputation by delivering the safest and most effective prescription and non-prescription weight loss products, all manufactured in fully licensed, U.S. based, FDA approved pharmacies. Qualified patients can easily reorder their products via the phone or internet to be delivered directly to their home. Each shipment will be accompanied by a Certificate of Analysis, performed by a third party laboratory, detailing the quality and quantity of all active ingredients. Some prescription diet products also require baseline blood work and other testing to ensure the safest and most effective weight loss possible.

Diet Doc monitors their patients progress, comfort level and attitude during scheduled weekly checkup calls. This level of personal contact also enables the doctor to identify weight loss plateaus, modify medication and diet plans and quickly place the body back into fast burn mode.

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.

Now it seems there is a specific type for everyone. Although the growth of the energy drink market has slowed since the original explosion a few years back, it has yet to stop. It seems the market has been established and these drinks are here to stay. Despite the continual surfacing of numerous reports indicating the dangers of the high levels of caffeine in these drinks, it seems the energy drink companies feel the health dangers and concerns are worth the risk considering the massive profit.

Weight Loss & Sports and Energy Drinks – What Role Do They Have in Weight Loss?

Sports and Energy Drinks – Who Needs Them?

Sports drinks have become a staple of American athletics. Every major sports team including the NFL, Major League Baseball, and NASCAR, are sponsored by and use sports drinks. Given the large amount of calories and sugar in the drinks, the issue is who needs them and do they quench thirst and really rehydrate people?

Physical activity of any kind exposes everyone to the possibility of dehydration. Numerous factors determine how one sweats and therefore how much water replacement will be needed during and after exercise. Fluid replacement depends on environmental factors including temperature, sun exposure, humidity, and wind, as well as the intensity and duration of the activity. Not only is there a difference between different activities, but between individuals; some people simply sweat more than others and need greater fluid replacement.

Excessive dehydration is as a loss of a body weight of 2% or greater with physical activities. Thus a 160 lb person is dehydrated if he loses 3.2 lb. or more during an event. They use average sweat rates (the amount of fluid lost per hour during exercise) to predict the possibility of dehydration. Here are some sports performed outside and the average sweat rates: basketball- 1.4 liters/hour, soccer -1.5 liters/hour, tennis -1.7 liters/hour and running 0.75 liters/ hour (at a speed of 5 mph.).
