Diet Doc hCG Weight Loss Program Aims to Lower Blood Pressure Through an Easy-to-Follow Ketogenic Diet utilizing a personalized diet plan found to be effective in burning fat and reducing blood pressure.
San Jose, CA (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
The ketogenic diet has long been known to treat a variety of health conditions ranging from epilepsy, to diabetes, to even anxiety. However, recent studies have shown the diet is very effective in lowering blood pressure as well. The American Heart Association reported this year that over 76.4 million Americans age 20 and older have high blood pressure, which translates into one in three adults in the U.S. alone.
Weight is known to be one of the biggest contributors to high blood pressure, and those who are overweight and obese tend to be at a higher risk. Even with most doctors advising their patients on how to lose weight and lower their blood pressure by following a healthy diet, most people still need additional resources and support to make those healthy lifestyle changes.
Diet Doc’s personalized hCG weight loss program is managed by their team of doctors, nutritionists and weight loss coaches and bridges that gap. Following a ketogenic diet, their plans consist of four progressive stages, each built around carefully selected and purposeful foods. The goal of the diet is to have the body produce ketones, which are compounds that the body can use to produce energy, a contrast to the average body that uses glucose from carbohydrates for energy purposes. With the lack of glucose in the bloodstream, the body draws on fat stores for fuel, causing the appearance of ketones in the blood. Switching the body from being a carb-burning machine to a fat-burning one causes one to lose weight and therefore reduce blood pressure.
hCGTreatments / Diet Doc works hard to ensure the success of each patient. After receiving a health evaluation from one of their doctors, a customized program is created by a nutritionist and supervised by a health coach. Patients receive weekly phone calls from their coaches who advise them on how to lose weight properly. This effective combination of a ketocenic diet along with advanced clinical support gives Diet Doc’s weight loss program a high success rate in weight loss and in helping to reduce blood pressure leaving their patients in better health overall.
