Diet Doc’s Team Tackles Metabolic Syndrome With Strategic Meal Planning and Health Assessments

DETROIT, MI–(Marketwired – March 23, 2017) – Metabolic syndrome is defined by a combination of poor health factors which include, high blood pressure, high abdominal fat, uncontrolled blood sugar and high cholesterol. Unfortunately, incidences of metabolic syndrome are rising in the U.S. due to sedentary lifestyles, lack of physical activity, over consumption of snacks and other processed foods and elevated levels of stress. Tobacco and alcohol use also contributes to this growing problem. The telltale sign of metabolic syndrome is consistent weight gain or great difficulty when trying to lose weight. Usually, metabolic syndrome be the end result of a long period of having a slow-functioning metabolism that may never have been addressed.

Many dieters will attempt a slew of fad diets, believing that they can still lose weight easily, not realizing that they have metabolic syndrome and that it may be nearly impossible to lose more than a few pounds at a time (which are usually water weight or even valuable muscle mass). Furthermore, because their metabolisms haven’t been properly corrected, they will most likely gain all the weight back and more, once the diet has ended. This can cause a great deal of frustration for many consumers who continuously struggle to lose weight. Especially, as doctors have warned them about elevated cholesterol or blood sugar and the problems that can arise in the future (heart disease, diabetes and a range of inflammatory conditions).

Metabolic syndrome must be addressed via strategies that take all current health issues into account. Each individual has a unique health profile with specific reasons for weight gain. Diets such as: the Military Diet, the Slimfast Diet or low-calorie juice diets for instance will do little to address the real causes of metabolic syndrome and can even worsen the condition by not providing proper nutrition that will support overall health.

There’s Now More Evidence That Type 2 Diabetes Can Actually Be Reversed

A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology Metabolism is sweetening the pot when it comes to the potential of reversing type 2 diabetes and adds to the growing body of evidence that intensive lifestyle changes can go a long way in managing the disease.

Researchers found that when diabetes patients received a combination of oral medication, insulin, and a personalized exercise and diet plan for two to four months (and then stopped all diabetes medication), up to 40 percent were able to keep their blood glucose numbers at remission levels for three months without meds. (Find out the silent signs you might have diabetes.)

“The idea of reversing the disease is very appealing to individuals with diabetes. It motivates them to make significant lifestyle changes and to achieve normal glucose levels,” said study author Natalia McInnes, MD, MSc, FRCPC, of McMaster University in Canada in a news release. (Typical treatment for the roughly 29 million Americans with type 2 diabetes is regular blood glucose testing, insulin, and medication.)

For the study, 83 individuals with type 2 diabetes were split into three groups. Two received oral medication, insulin, and a personalized exercise and diet plan that cut their daily caloric intake by 500 to 750 a day (one group followed the intervention for eight weeks, the other was treated for 16 weeks); both groups stopped taking diabetes medications at the end of the intervention and were encouraged to continue the lifestyle changes on their own. A control group received standard blood sugar management advice.

Three months after the intervention was completed, 11 out of the 27 “intervention-ers” in the 16-week program met the criteria for complete or partial remission, compared just four out of the 28 control group participants. “The research might shift the paradigm of treating diabetes from simply controlling glucose to an approach where we induce remission and then monitor patients for signs of relapse,” said McInnes.

These are other science-backed ways that can help reverse type 2 diabetes.

Learning together to manage, possibly reverse disease

The Yavapai Regional Medical Center’s Pendelton Center offers the Reversing Heart Disease Support Group the second Monday of every month to help participants learn about diet and lifestyle strategies that are key to long-term heart health.

The group revolves around the lifestyle habits and plant-based diet proposed by cardiologist Dr. Dean Ornish, who over the last four decades has helped thousands of patients improve their heart function and reverse heart disease by following his strategies. Ornish’s concepts are embraced by many local cardiologists and heart specialists today.

The support group is free, and participants enjoy great food, energizing exercise, relaxation through meditation, yoga, and art, lively discussions and the welcome support of family and peers. The topics change monthly and include diet, exercise and stress management strategies. Each meeting is led by a health and wellness professional, including YRMC Registered Dietician Rita Carey Rubin, MS, RD, CDE, YRMC Personal Trainer and Fitness Coordinator Teresa Fincher, or Art Therapist Kat Kirby.

Some members say the group has inspired them to stay on the right path, and to try various recipes and nutrition tips rooted in scientific knowledge.

“I found a tremendous amount of good information,” said Bill Johnson, citing tips on diet, exercise and, most importantly, stress reduction.

He began attending the group five years ago, after open heart surgery.

“It’s not the end of the world once you have a heart issue; you keep on going. But it’s programs like this that really help support that,” Johnson said.

Lynda Kinnear, another longtime participant, appreciates the nutrition advice and recipes.

“After considerable reading I decided on a plant-based diet and I appreciate that this group validates my decision,” she said. “I always enjoy the lessons on nutrition that Rita gives because I find the subject dry, and I don’t enjoy reading about it, but she makes the discussions interesting. My husband feels he knows Rita too, because I’m always quoting her!”

Ornish was the first to develop and study the effects of a comprehensive cardiac rehabilitation program based on lifestyle change. His first study, which began in 1980, involved just 48 patients who were randomly split into two groups of 24. The experimental group lived together for 24 days, ate a plant-based, vegan diet and practiced a variety of stress management practices daily, while the control group continued their routine activities at home. The results at the end of the study were remarkable. Patients in the experimental group had a significant reduction in cholesterol and triglycerides; frequency of angina attacks dropped from an average of 10 per week to one; heart function (as measured by ejection fraction) improved for all but three patients; and almost everyone reduced their need for a variety of medications. In stark contrast, the control group on average experienced no change in triglycerides, cholesterol or frequency of angina attacks, and heart function decreased in 13 out of 24 patients in just 24 days.

Since that initial study, Ornish and his team have worked with thousands of patients who, unlike that first experimental group, live their usual lives at home but learn about diet, exercise and stress management through the trademarked “Ornish Reversal Program.” The research has proven that diet and lifestyle changes can improve blood lipids and heart function, decrease angina, and even reduce the amount of plaque blocking the vital arteries that deliver blood and oxygen to the heart.

Dr. Rao Explains that the Beyond Diet May Not Take Caloric Deficits into Account for Expedient Weight Loss

SIOUX FALLS, SD–(Marketwired – March 21, 2017) – The Beyond Diet looks to promote clean eating and avoidance of certain foods that hinder metabolic function. It is essentially, another re-hash of basic healthy eating principles based on the premise that eliminating five of the following foods: orange juice, soy milk, artificial sweetener, wheat bread and pasta will recharge the metabolism. Dr. Nishant Rao – Medical Director of Diet Doc explains that, “While this may be true for some, it certainly doesn’t apply to everyone with weight management challenges, nor does the Beyond Diet offer anything particularly unique. It simply removes obviously unhealthy food and replaces it with healthier options.”

Dr. Rao also states that, “The diet also places no emphasis on calorie intake adjustments, which are basically the currency of weight loss progress.” Removing the foods above may operate under the assumption that the dieters already consume them frequently which may or may not be true. Furthermore, removing those foods may not be enough to create a genuine caloric deficit. Dr. Rao believes that, “Most people need to be educated in the importance of caloric boundaries or fat loss is impossible. The Beyond Diet takes the simplistic stance that these specific foods are the reasons most people gain weight and have metabolic issues, when the true answer depends on a lot of factors such as, level of physical activity, overall diet, lifestyle, possible smoking or drinking habits, etc.”

Diet Doc’s Jumpstart Diet promotes nutritionally balanced eating that is tailored to the unique health profile of each specific dieter and also takes into account the need to create safe caloric deficits for fast weight loss. Rather than following non-specific plans which usually fail to suit everyone’s weight loss requirements, Diet Doc offers affordable nutritional coaching and doctor-supervised planning in order to hit your weight loss goals right on target.
