People across the country are committing to better health through safe and fast weight loss in 2015 with Diet Doc’s medically supervised weight loss programs
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/12/2015 -- Diet Doc has always been dedicated to helping people in any part of the country to take control of their health by losing excess fat. Now their 2015 diet plans include more education and teach their patients how to distinguish the difference between good and bad fat.
With obesity quickly becoming a national epidemic, more and more people are dedicating 2015 as the year that they will improve their health, slim their waistline and lose dangerous, unwanted and embarrassing excess fat. Diet Doc is committed to helping their clients reach their ideal weight and includes education in their diet plans this year that will make their patients better able to know the difference between good and bad fat.
While most doctors and nutritional experts lecture that a low-fat diet is the key to losing weight, managing cholesterol and preventing health problems, some fat is actually good. But, because all fat seems to look the same, how does the normal person distinguish the difference between good and bad fat? Most dieters feel very proud and accomplished when they can pass by the cookie and potato chip aisle without grabbing a bag of their favorite comfort foods, and then they reach for the package that is boldly advertised as No or Low Fat. What the typical consumer does not understand is that far more importantly than the amount of fat consumed is the type of fat consumed. And because the body requires a certain amount of fat to function properly, the answer is not to eliminate all fats, but to learn the difference between good and bad fats.
The human body needs fat for a variety of reasons including:
-Energy. However, overindulging causes excess calories and fat to be stored in special fat cells called adipose tissue. Consistently overeating causes these fat stores to accumulate around the inner organs and is the most dangerous, as well as the most difficult to lose.
-Essential fatty acids include omega-3 and omega-6 and are primarily found in fish and plant sources. The body drives great health benefits from these fatty acids.
-Proper nerve and brain function. Fats are part of myelin, a fatty material that wraps around and protects the nerve cells.
-Healthy skin and other tissues. All body cells need some fats as essential parts of cell membranes to control what goes in and out of the cells.
-Transporting fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K through the bloodstream.
-Forming steroid hormones to regulate bodily processes.
Dieters need to remember to steer clear of food that include Trans and saturated fats. These fats are typically created artificially through a process known as hydrogenation. Artificial Trans fats are most often found in fast foods, fried foods and commercially baked products and are highly associated with weight gain and clogged arteries. Saturated fats are fat molecules that are solid at room temperature, are high in calories and increases LDL (bad) cholesterol levels in the blood, increasing the risk for heart disease and stroke.
Good fats, on the other hand, have the opposite effects of Trans and saturated fats and include polyunsaturated fats and omega-3's. These fats play a key role in mood management, mental clarity and acuity, fatigue and weight control and are protected with antioxidant vitamins, protecting the heart and supporting overall good health.
Without a medical or nutritional background, it can be very difficult for people to know the difference between good and bad fat. Fortunately, because Diet Doc's goal is to help their patients, not only lose unhealthy excess fat, but to discourage its return, they provide their clients with unlimited access to their staff of nutritional experts who educate their patients on the most nutritious foods that keep their body operating at optimal capacity and leave them feeling full and satisfied without compromising their health or weight loss results.
Because of Diet Doc's dedication and commitment to helping their patients not only lose excess fat, but learn how to distinguish the difference between good and bad fat for long term improved health and weight control, people throughout the country are turning to the company for their weight loss needs.
