Arlington, VA (PRWEB) April 23, 2015

Diet Doc Emphasizes the Dangers of Ineffective Homeopathic Online hCG Diet Drops

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 07, 2015

Weight loss is a big business in the United States, raking in billions of dollars via the internet by promoting such products as homeopathic online hCG diet drops. To better understand why homeopathic drugs are ineffective, one must first understand the term, homeopathic. Homeopathic simply means that the product has been diluted with other ingredients. Sometimes the original drug is so saturated with other ingredients that there is no evidence of any of the original, intended drug in the product, making it entirely ineffective. And, because the ingredients used to dilute the product is not typically disclosed, patients are exposed to health compromise or drug contraindications. Other advertisements that consumers should pay very close attention include:

Diet Doc Introduces New Alternative to the Feast and Famine Diet

Miami, FL (PRWEB) March 04, 2015

A new dieting routine, called the feast and famine diet, is showing promise in terms of extending life. Studies conducted by the University of Florida have shown that this new dieting routine can help extend life by increasing anti-oxidant production. While increased lifespan through antioxidant production clearly has long term benefits, many suffering from obesity are already experiencing life shortening health side-effects, thus a quicker substitute is necessary. As an alternative to the new Feast and Famine diet, Diet Doc has announced a newly renovated weight loss system dedicated to healthy weight loss without the feast, and without the famine. Instead, Diet Doc creates an individually tailored, healthy weight loss diet plan around each patient. This diet is designed to allow dieters enough calories to function normally, yet few enough calories to actually enact true weight loss. The overwhelming result? Healthy and safe weight loss and eventually, less risk of health related illness.

Founder and President of Diet Doc Weight Loss Plans, Julie Wright, notes that “There is no need for people to resort to risky feast and famine diet plans. Diet Doc can help every person lose weight in a natural and safe way, without overeating and without starving yourself or any combination of the two. While the feast and famine diet shows possibilities of extending life via increased antioxidant production, the first step for those looking to lose large amounts of weight, and restore lost health, an aggressive and healthy weight loss plan can extend life much more assuredly by preventing the myriad of health issues associated with obesity.

The Diet Doc clinical diet plan uses medically supervised, professionally designed and monitored nutritional science to enact safe weight loss without starvation. The company uses the latest technology to design customized diet plans around individual patient needs and wants. Once any underlying issues have been identified, Diet Doc has the option of utilizing prescription-only diet aids to help extricate hidden fat stores, and expedite the weight loss process. Most patients experience results of approximately 15 to 20 pounds lost per month.

Before embarking on the Diet Doc weight loss plan, each patient receives a thorough medical evaluation. What separates Diet Doc from their competitors; however, is the ease at which this evaluation is conducted. Patients simply fill out a new patient questionnaire online, and consult with a certified weight loss doctor over the telephone. Each consult takes place on the patients own timeframe, and from the ease and comfort of their own home. It is this simplicity that has made the company a leader in Telemedicine, the receiving of medical supervision remotely.

Diet Doc has long understood, that to successfully reach their fat loss goals, dieters must do more than simply change what they are eating, which includes the feast and famine diet. The company created their prescription powerful diet plans to offer clients an uncomplicated, effective way to reach their goals and sustain their weight over time. Patient success while utilizing the companys specially formulated diet aids and hormone treatments is what has made Diet Doc a trusted leader in the field, and the nations leader in medically supervised weight management plans.

About the Company:
