Diet Doc Announces New Prescription Diet Pills for Faster Weight Loss That Perfectly Complement Their Medical Diet Plans


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 24, 2015

Although the internet now gives prospective dieters various weight loss options, it is important for consumers to be diligent when choosing a diet plan that includes diet pills for faster weight loss. Most diet plans offer quick weight loss results that serve general dieting needs but do not address the patients personal and unique causes of weight gain. Because of this, dieters often see a return of the weight.

Diet Doc developed their diet plans that include an initial doctor consultation that enables the doctor to review the system, uncover weight loss barriers that may have been previously overlooked, and create a master diet plan that is compatible with each patients personal nutritional, medical and lifestyle needs and goals before prescribing supplements and diet pills for faster weight loss.

Because the diet plans are designed to address various causes of weight gain, the company has developed many different supplements and diet pills for faster weight loss that are geared toward these various issues. And, while patients will often combine several treatments, most patients will be prescribed hormone diet treatments that naturally target and burn excess stored body fat from the hard to reach areas, such as the belly, hips, thighs and buttocks while eliminating hunger, cravings, carbohydrate withdrawal headaches and loss of energy.

Their exclusive and impressive collection of diet products include powerful Appetite Zap to control the urge to reach for comfort foods while burning fat four times faster than other appetite suppressants, diet pills for faster weight loss without causing jittery side effects, Metabolism Boost to jump start the metabolism for faster fat burn, as well as vitamin and mineral supplements that are essential to healthy and fast weight loss.

Diet Docs experts speak weekly with patients to monitor progress and assess comfort level and attitude. This personal contact enables the doctor to ensure that patients are safely and comfortably losing excess fat without side effects and without weight loss plateaus.

Diet Doc has built its reputation on delivering the safest and most effective diet 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 journey.

Diet Docs genuine concern for their patients safe and successful weight loss journey has earned them a reputation of trust and reliability throughout the nation. They urge those of all shapes, sizes, ages and genders to call today before resorting to over the counter, potentially dangerous diet pills for faster weight loss.

Gift Toad Survey Shows that Stress about Shopping can Result in Bad Valentines Day Gift-Giving: Online Service Helps with Gift Selection

(PRWEB) January 24, 2015

Gift Toad surveyed its Facebook followers asking them to describe in 25 words or less the best or worst Valentines Day gift they had ever received. The results were surprising; some of the answers were heartwarming and others were downright sad. Several individuals shared beautiful stories about Valentines Day proposals, babies being born on Valentines Day, and hand-made gifts they had received. Others, however, shared their heartbreaking stories from the love-inspired holiday.

Here are four of the worst:

My ex bought himself a game for his Xbox and I got nothing.

I received an engraved locket with my boyfriends initials and his exs (initials).

My boyfriend waited until the last minute. The store only had kid Valentines left. I received a SpongeBob Valentine with a broken lollipop attached.

(I received) weight loss pills and a scale.

As a result of hearing stories like these and after surviving a few of his own gift-giving debacles, Chip Brunk, a former investment banker and toy company president, founded an online gift service. Gift Toad is designed for men like me who hate shopping and find the gift-giving process to be taxing, says Brunk. I once gave my wife a vacuum cleaner because I thought she would appreciate the self-propel feature. It turns out she thought I was telling her that she needed to clean more. After that experience, I found it stressful trying to find appropriate gifts knowing that what I gave her meant more to her than I ever realized.

Many people find their stress levels increasing as major gift-giving occasions like Valentines Day, birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas draw near. Oftentimes they are unsure about what type of gift to buy and end up putting off their shopping until the last minute. Our goal is to alleviate the stress that comes with preparing for an upcoming gift-giving occasion by making it easy for our users to find appropriate gifts, says Brenda Staab, Editor-in-Chief at Gift Toad. We sort through millions of products and feature only the most appealing gift items so that the shopping process essentially becomes fail-proof.

Gift Toads team of editors further assists with the decision-making process by providing gift-giving tips as well as romantic scores on certain items like jewelry and flowers to help customers find suitable presents for the more romantic occasions such as Valentines Day and anniversaries.

Relationship experts agree that gift-giving can be an important ingredient in a romantic relationship. And some individuals place more value on giving and receiving gifts than others do. Says Staab, I know a lot of people who end up picking out their own gifts, which can take away from the romantic aspect of a special occasion. Shopping doesnt have to be difficult or stressful, and gift-giving can be fun and rewarding for both the giver and the receiver.

With Valentines Day on the horizon, now may a good time to start shopping in order to avoid having to deliver a cartoon Valentine with a broken lollipop attached.

Diet Doc Releases Prescription Strength Love Hormone Oxytocin, Now Thought to Help Naturally Reduce Calorie Intake


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) March 10, 2015

The so called love hormone, oxytocin, is taking the weight loss world by storm. Known predominately as the love hormone, secreted during pregnancy and delivery, as well as during sexual intercourse, oxytocin is now thought to have some impact on lowering the amount of calories healthy men consume, which can ultimately lead to more effective weight loss. The findings, which were recently presented at the 97th annual meeting of the Endocrine Society on March 8, 2015, echoed previous studies on animals, that oxytocin reduces food intake. Oxytocin is a hormone produced naturally by the hypothalamus and stored and secreted by the posterior pituitary gland. Found to have an important role in the neuroanatomy of intimacy, this love hormone plays in integral part in human bonding. The love hormone is also on the World Health Organizations list of the most important medicines needed in a basic health system, conveying its safety and efficacy.

Aside from the love hormones proclivity to help people form tighter bonds with each other, it has been found to reduce food intake in healthy males, ultimately leading to its use as a weight loss aid. Lead investigator, Dr. Elizabeth Lawson of Harvard Medical School is positive about the potential of this love hormone, saying that Further study is needed, but I think oxytocin is a promising treatment for obesity and its metabolic complications. When treated with a nasal spray of oxytocin, or the love hormone, men consumed less calories during the subsequent breakfast. The treatment also showed signs of improving certain metabolic characteristics like insulin sensitivity, specifically the bodys ability to clear glucose from the bloodstream, which leads to less glucose being stored as body fat.

Dieters across America are wondering where they can get this powerful new weight loss aid. Diet Doc has the answer. Specially formulated by in-house doctors, Diet Docs new prescription oxytocin is available now, direct from the FDA approved pharmacy. This new weight loss aid can be ordered after a thorough doctor evaluation, and delivered directly to a patients door upon doctor approval.

oxytocin, or the love hormone, is tolerated extremely well when administered at the low levels required for its calorie reduction benefits. Since the best method of delivery is via an intranasal spray, Diet Doc has formulated their oxytocin in an easy-to-use nasal spray, a non-invasive way to get the full benefit of this amazing new weight loss aid.

Formulated by an FDA approved compounding pharmacy, Diet Docs oxytocin comes with a guarantee of potency and purity, which is important, as other companies may not operate under the same stringent ethical standards as Diet Doc.

Interested patients need merely to contact Diet Doc, and speak to a representative who will schedule a simple yet thorough medical evaluation. This can all be completed via the telephone and computer using advanced Telehealth procedures.

Diet Doc Introduces New Neuro Balance, A Proprietary Diet Aid to Help Dieters Eliminate Food Cravings


Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 21, 2015

One of the most difficult aspects of remaining steadfast during dieting is still between meal food cravings. Many diets end badly due to dieters inability to eliminate the food cravings experienced between meals. Some attempt to eat more often throughout the day, portioning smaller sized meals to be eaten at more regular intervals. While this approach does work for many, others will still struggle with food cravings, even directly after a meal. For those who are having trouble remaining committed to dieting, and are struggling with between meal food cravings, Diet Doc has invented a great new diet aid called Neuro Balance, to help dieters more effectively eliminate food cravings.

New Neuro Balance contains a proprietary blend of powerful hunger staving ingredients like Chinese skullcap and ginseng, both known to help balance mood and stress. Neuro Balance works to help balance key neurotransmitters in the brain like serotonin and dopamine, as well as 5-HTP. Serotonin and dopamine are associated with food cravings and emotional eating, so by balancing both these hormones, as well as other key hormones responsible for food cravings, dieters are more likely to eat at regular intervals, less likely to suffer from stress related emotional eating, and overall more able to remain steadfast while dieting. Using this and other Diet Doc proprietary diet aids, in conjunction with a Diet Doc comprehensive weight loss system, patients are routinely experiencing weight loss of up to 20 pounds per month.

With new Neuro Balance, coupled with doctor supervised weight loss plans, Diet Doc can provide a comprehensive solution for dieters of all types, from those looking to lose 20 pounds to those who must lose substantially more weight in order to restore health. Each weight loss plan is designed by expert doctors experienced in the weight loss field, and feature powerful diet aids like Neuro balance to help dieters overcome the initial shock of eating more regularly and eliminate between meal food cravings.

In order to produce more rapid results, Diet Doc offers a comprehensive, yet simple online questionnaire that can help in-house physicians determine underlying health conditions that may be preventing weight loss. This questionnaire is available to all new patients and easily completed online in a few minutes. Afterwards, a physician will review the results, and contact the patient to discuss the most effective treatments, all based on the patients individual bodily factors. This initial consultation allows the Diet Doc physician and nutritionist to custom design a treatment plan around every patient, and is the secret to achieving such monumental and lasting results.

Interested in Diet Docs new Neuro Balance? The company is currently making it available to patients nationwide, offering a months supply of Neuro Balance for $ 59.95, after a brief but thorough evaluation by a Diet Doc weight loss doctor. Once potential patients complete an online health questionnaire, they can be scheduled for a doctor consultation. Patients find the Diet Doc consultation to be the most effective, as it takes place in the patients own home, and is done over the telephone or via video conferencing without embarrassment or hassle. This protocol eliminates often apprehensive visits to clinics or doctors offices, takes much less time to schedule and complete, and costs a fraction of traditional methods.

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.).
