Diet Doc’s medical diet plans encourage healthy food choices through nutritionist-designed meal plans, closely monitored by a physician and capable of working around weight gain now found to be caused by some antidepressants.
Escondido, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/11/2013 -- Hundreds of millions of antidepressant medication prescriptions are written each year in America. Medical News Today reports that while improving the emotional health of many patients, many of these antidepressant medications have a direct negative influence on weight gain while also impacting one’s ability to manage and maintain a healthy weight. Although the amount of excess weight gain that these drugs can cause varies, and is dependent on the type of drug, some studies have shown that patients have gained as much as 7% of their body weight since beginning antidepressant therapy. Popular antidepressant medications, can add 10 pounds or more to one’s weight. One consideration may be that the antidepressant medications are allowing the patient to rediscover pleasure once again, including the pleasure of high calorie, fatty, unhealthy foods.
Hormones play a key role in one’s emotional status, as well as the ability to lose unwanted pounds and the ability to maintain a healthy, long term weight. Responsible for regulating many bodily functions, hormones are chemical messengers that, when out of balance, can play havoc on one’s physical and emotional wellbeing. Because of the widespread use of prescription antidepressants, patients are enjoying better emotional health, but the same medications that are essential to their emotional health can also lead to packing on excess unhealthy weight. The path to maintaining a healthy hormone balance to manage long term weight goals can be a slippery slope, but under the direction of Diet Doc’s board certified doctors, nurses and nutritionists, healthy weight and hormone balance can be obtained and managed long term.
Subsequent to an simple yet extensive medical evaluation and doctor consultation, certified nutritionists will design diet plans that are specific to each patient’s personal nutritional, medical and fast weight loss needs and goals. These uniquely designed diet plans incorporate hormone friendly foods, green leafy vegetables, lean proteins, healthy fats and essential fibers to help maintain an adequate hormone balance while losing unwanted and unhealthy excess fat. Because the diet plans do not rely on complex carbohydrates, such as breads and pasta, the body is forced to rely on the simple carbohydrates that are easily converted to energy.
By using pharmaceutical doses of 100% pure prescription medication, a hormone that, when coupled with nutritious diet plans, has the ability to trigger the brain to release stored and trapped fat into the bloodstream to be used as energy, while resetting the metabolism and suppressing the appetite, the professionals at Diet Doc are paving the way to a new and exciting approach to weight loss. Even those patients who suffer from depression, and are prescribed antidepressant medications that cause weight gain, can keep weight under control by following Diet Doc’s medically supervised diet plans.
