Diet Doc Introduces New Diabetic Diet Plans that Stabilize Blood Sugar Levels …

Diet Doc’s new diabetic diet plans are strategically designed to help their patients stabilize blood sugar levels and safely lose excess fat

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2015

While there are a number of reasons why people develop diabetes that are beyond their control, carrying excess fat is a known risk that can be overcome with lifestyle changes. It is important for those who are diagnosed as pre-diabetic and, even for those who are not diagnosed with diabetes, to understand the importance of the changes that are necessary to discourage the development of a number of weight-related diseases.

It is well known that carrying excess abdominal fat can interfere with the body’s ability to produce insulin, the leading cause of diabetes. The more excess fat – the greater the risk. Fortunately, Diet Doc has created diabetic diet plans that focus on helping their patients take control of their health, improve and stabilize blood sugar levels for their diabetic patients and reduce the diabetes diagnosis risk for those who may be teetering on the edge of full-blown diabetes.

At Diet Doc, new patients will learn that living with diabetes or pre-diabetes does not have to leave them feeling hungry or deprived. Patients will work closely with nutritional experts who understand how to balance healthy food choices that leave them feeling full and satisfied while eliminating uncontrollable urges to reach for unhealthy, high carbohydrate foods. By simply calling the company or visiting dietdoc.com, new patients can complete an initial health questionnaire and schedule a Diet Doc doctor consultation from the comfort of their own home. During the consultation, the entire system will be reviewed and evaluated before recommendations are made for meal and snack plans and diet products that will work flawlessly to stabilize blood sugar levels while generating safe and fast weight loss without contraindications with other prescription medications or medical conditions. While all diabetic patients will benefit from Diet Doc’s deliciously structured meal and snack plans, many will qualify to accelerate weight loss with pure, prescription hormone diet treatments, proprietary diet pills and powerful fat burners. Many patients will be prescribed Chromium Picolinate which works to stabilize blood sugar levels and assist insulin in the biochemical regulation of fat.

The experts at Diet Doc support and guide each patient throughout their journey toward better health through safe and fast weight loss. They work closely with each patient to teach them how and why the body responds to specific foods, they monitor progress and comfort level through scheduled weekly checkup calls and are available via phone or email to answer questions, offer suggestions or address any patient concerns.

Combining today’s advanced science and modern medical understanding with their doctor-designed and medically supervised diabetic diet plans has enabled the company to become a leader in the weight loss industry and allowed them to help diabetic and pre-diabetic patients lose excess fat for long term improved health and longevity. By allowing patients to take control of their own health and become a part of their own weight loss solution, breaking bad habits and choosing healthier food options soon becomes routine.

Diabetic diet plans are tailored for those of all ages, genders, shapes and sizes and for those who are struggling to shed that final 10-20 pounds to those who must lose 100 pounds or more and, specifically, for those who want to stabilize blood sugar levels, lose excess weight and prevent diabetes. The professionals at Diet Doc encourage patients from any part of the country to call today to schedule a private and no-cost consultation.

Chiropractor who offered no-diet weight loss program faces fraud charges

FARMINGTON — A Layton chiropractor who allegedly offered extreme weight loss programs to senior citizens that did not require exercise or dieting, but did require up to $10,000 in fees, now faces multiple fraud charges.

Michael Paul Kunzler, 46, was charged in March with seven counts of communications fraud, a second-degree felony; two counts of exploitation of a vulnerable adult, a second-degree felony; theft by deception, a second-degree felony; and forgery, a third-degree felony.

Last week, the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing filed notice that it intended to revoke his practicing license.

According to charging documents and a report filed by division investigators, Kunzler charged several patients between $3,500 and $10,000 for a weight loss program that essentially included 400- to 500-calorie-a-day diet with no exercise and then refused to give them refunds when they asked for them.

He also purported to have an “Ultra Slim” weight loss machine at his Rebalance Weight Loss clinic in Layton that was the No. 1 body contouring machine in the world and that he was the only person in Utah who had one, according to the Utah Department of Commerce. However, the machine has not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, according to the division.

Investigators also allege that Kunzler falsified his certification training credentials.

From January 2013 to January 2015, Kunzler promised his alleged victims “extreme weight loss and physical regeneration without any ‘strenuous’ diet,” according to charging documents.

Two of his victims were 79 years old, the charges state. One of his patients reported having cancer and another diabetes when they had their initial consultation with Kunzler, but both “were offered virtually identical programs (in spite of their different health issues) and told that the program entailed a 400-calorie-per-day diet, a diet that they are unable to follow due to their disclosed health issues,” according to the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing’s report.

When the couple asked for a refund, Kunzler refused, the report states.

On Nov. 14, an undercover agent with the division made an appointment with Kunzler and was offered the non-FDA Ultra Slim machine, the report states.

Kunzler is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on the criminal charges Monday. A pre-hearing for revoking his license is scheduled for May 26 and a full licensing hearing is scheduled for Oct. 8.

On Thursday, investigators asked for anyone “who had similar experiences with Dr. Kunzler” to step forward and file a complaint with the Utah Division of Occupational and Professional Licensing at http://dopl.utah.gov/investigations/complaint.html or call 801-530-6630.

Why Achieving Weight Loss Through Dieting Is a Recipe For Disaster

There is no doubt that the weight loss industry is a booming trade. It is rather like a lottery. For every successful weight loss “success story” there are many more that failed.

Similar to a lottery draw; not everyone can win the elusive jackpot yet millions will buy a ticket each week without any monetary gains and return the following week for another stab at the jackpot.

Just as people keep buying lottery tickets, so do people go from one diet to another looking for that “Secret Weapon” that will make them shed unwanted weight and keep it off.

Here are my five reasons why diets do not work and what you should be doing instead.

1. Diet plans that are too restrictive are a sure recipe for disaster.

If you are following a specific plan that does not allow you to make your own choices, this will create stress and confusion when you have to make a choice.

What you need to gain from a diet plan is knowing what to do when you find yourself at a party or a restaurant. Being knowledgeable in making correct food choices are paramount. You need to understand why you should to be eating XYZ instead of ABC.

2. Diet vs. way of life.

The way you perceive your approach to eating is important. The word diet immediately conjures up a notion of being denied food you love. If you are eating a green salad but deep down wishing you were eating a cheeseburger then you will fail in your efforts to lose weight.

You need to stop with the notion that you are missing out on anything. If all you can think about is cheeseburgers, then stop wasting your money on endless diet programs and just keep eating the cheeseburgers. You may not lose weight, but you will certainly save money.

3. Falling off the wagon.

I hear this often:

Fell off the wagon in the last three weeks after my son’s 21st birthday party. I am trying not to beat myself up about it and get back on track.

If it is a wagon ride you are on then you are bound to fall off at the first bump.

So what if you had a chocolate bar or a cheeseburger?

Life is to be enjoyed and if you are constrained by a rigid diet plan then you will be falling off the wagon many times.

Make your journey an easy one allowing for rest stops along the way. A little sweetness in life is to be enjoyed and not something to beat yourself up about.

4. Emotional Eating

Diet plans rarely address the connection between your emotions and what you eat.

If you find yourself dipping into the crunchy peanut butter jar for comfort when feeling stressed and then hating yourself for it afterwards then you are on a very rocky road.

Finding a program that addresses the mind and how your emotions influence your food choices would be most beneficial if this is something you can relate to.

5. One plan is NOT for ALL.

Just because a certain approach worked for your next-door neighbour, does not mean the plan will work for you.

Personally I love hot soups and roasted vegetables so a raw food plan will not be appealing for me.

If I feel like a hearty casserole I will Google various recipes until I find the one with ingredients that I know I will have in the cupboard and will enjoy.

During a recent search for casseroles, I found one that asked for chicken livers. Memories of being forced to eat liver down as a child still continue to haunt me and therefore no amount of persuasion was going to get me to race off to the shops to pick up some livers no matter what the benefits of the recipe touted!

It is not a diet you are looking for, but a lifestyle change. There are many opportunities for you to make the first step. Online programs, local weight loss clubs, eBooks are all there ready and waiting.

My advice is to pick what resonates with you, fits into your lifestyle and makes you feel comfortable. There may be a little bit of pain and resistance initially in any lifestyle change you make. If you are used to eating take-away on a regular basis home cooked meals may leave you frazzled but slowly and surely incorporating small changes and baby steps each day will have you on the right path,

Beyonce’s Diet And Weight Loss Vegan Eating Secrets, Workout Exercise Plan …

After Beyoncé revealed a slimmer version of herself at the Met gala in a sheer gown, more interest in the singer’s weight loss, diet plan, and workout regimen has been displayed. As a result, People reports that it’s likely a venture into vegan-land that’s helped the superstar slim down. According to Marco Borges, Beyoncé’s trainer and the guy who encouraged Jay Z and his wife to give his theory about trying a plant-based diet for 22 days a whirl, the superstar eased into his plan slowly by starting off with plant-based breakfasts, which eventually led to plant-based lunches, and the whole enchilada.

Author of the best-selling book titled The 22-Day Revolution: The Plant-Based Program That Will Transform Your Body, Reset Your Habits, and Change Your Life, Borges’ website features inspirational quotes from the “Drunk in Love” singer, and his Instagram page includes lots of beautiful photos of food with simple recipes to help people get started on his eating plan.

“If a Houston-born foodie like me can do it, you can too. You just need to try it for 22 Days.”— BEYONCÉ

Beyoncé and Jay Z’s skin began to glow after beginning Marco’s 22-day plan, says the trainer. However, the best benefit from adapting to his eating plan is dropping pounds, says Borges, as Beyoncé showed off in her sheer gown.

“The number one benefit is weight loss, and a really close second is energy. Jennifer Lopez and [Beyoncé] and Jay have all done the 22-Day Revolution program and across the board it’s been, ‘My energy is through the roof.’”

In the foreword of the book, Beyoncé writes about growing up in Houston and not always making the best choices with a diet that consisted of fried chicken, BBQ ribs, po-boy sandwiches, and other fare.

“After having my daughter, I made a conscious effort to regain control of my health and my body. But I didn’t want to do a crash diet.”

Beyoncé went on to write about how it took time for her and Jay Z to jump aboard the plant-based diet train because she thought it sounded crazy — something she could never do because she loved food too much. Eventually, she tried it though, and wrote that it helped her get in the best shape of her life. Her exercise routine has been revealed in Instagram videos.

“I had lost my pregnancy weight with his help, through an exercise-and-nutrition program, and was ready for another challenge.”

As reported by the Inquisitr, along with Beyoncé’s weight loss making the news, so has Kourtney Kardashian’s Instagram photo, which revealed her weight loss after giving birth to her child, bringing her down to 116 pounds.

Weight Watchers diet plan founder dies

Jean Nidetch, founder of popular diet plan Weight Watchers, died on Wednesday at her home in Parkland, Florida, according to Time and other sources. She was 91 years old.

Nidetch started the hugely successful business after dropping 70 pounds. Down to 142 pounds from 214, Nidetch began hosting weekly meetings with her friends at her home.

That’s how Weight Watchers was born. The company went public in 1968, and before Nidetch knew it, she and her fellow founders were millionaires, Time reports.

The original diet plan focused largely on lean meats, fruits and vegetables, but its crucial and unique ingredient was emotional support, as The New York Times explains.

Weekly meetings provided those on the program with mutual understanding of each other’s struggles. The diet also required participants to maintain “journals to keep track of what one ate, diets with realistic goals and lifelong maintenance programs, supportive magazines and books, television forums, camps, and meetings like those for alcoholics, with confessions and motivational speakers,” The New York Times details.

In a 2011 interview with The Sun Sentinel, Nidetch said, “We ourselves hold the instrument that makes us fat.”

She added, “I just shake my head when I see someone eating cake and saying, ‘Oh, I wish I wasn’t heavy.’ But they keep eating the cake!”

Allergy desensitization program in KC to add 5 more foods after success of …

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – People with food allergies will soon have new food treatment options in the Kansas City area after six patients became desensitized to their peanut allergy.

After first introducing peanut desensitization to this area last year, Kansas City Allergy Asthma plans to add desensitization treatment this summer for five more foods:

1. Milk
2. Eggs
3. Wheat
4. Soy
5. Tree nuts

“These patients need protection too, and these families need peace of mind,” said Dr. Derrick Ward with Kansas City Allergy Asthma.

Peanut desensitization 

“Now that we have gained valuable experience with our peanut allergic population and established our infrastructure, we feel comfortable expanding the program,” said Ward.

Since first offering peanut desensitization, also known as OIT, or oral immunotherapy,  Ward has helped six patients graduate from the program by slowly introducing them to peanut protein with increasing doses each week.

“They are still allergic, but are desensitized. We don’t know yet whether or not they will eventually become tolerant [not allergic],” said Ward.

Patient concerns

One of those patients is 10-year old Sofia Valdez. Her mother previously had to worry about exposure to peanuts or even peanut dust, which could cause anaphylactic shock and lead to death.

“It is truly miraculous,” Christina Valdez said. “Now we are able to enjoy a wide range of restaurants.”

Peanut desensitization normally takes four to six months to complete, but Christina Valdez says her daughter needed 10 months to become desensitized to her peanut allergy because she struggled with anxiety.

“Both psychological and physiological challenges,” Christina Valdez said. “Not only are they slowly introducing a life-threatening allergen into their diet, but they have to overcome the anxiety that is associated with their food allergy.”

Maintaining desensitization

Her daughter Sofia will have to eat eight peanuts a day for the rest of her life to maintain her desensitization, just like the other patients who finish peanut desensitization therapy.

“All are doing well on their daily maintenance dose of eight peanuts. We have another seven patients in the build-up or escalation phase,” Ward said. “Not all patients are candidates for food desensitization, so an evaluation by an allergist is necessary.”

Those who are able to graduate experience new freedoms like attending birthday parties or flying on planes.  Christina Valdez says the new freedom benefits the entire family as they plan to take Sofia to Orlando this summer on her first flight.

“We never flew on planes. There are no federal regulations prohibiting people from bringing nuts on a plane,” said Christina Valdez. “I was not willing to risk her going into anaphylactic shock on a plane.”
