Q: Can I still eat meat if I’m on a Diet Doc plan?
A: Protein is an essential part of a good nutrition plan. Our plans try to balance meals with the proper amount of fat, protein and carbohydrates to promote weight loss without leaving you hungry.
Q: I have heard of other diets, such as the Zone, the Stillman and the South Beach. Won’t they help me lose weight?
A: Many people do have success with diets combining sensible meals with exercise. And it’s great if one of these diets works for you. But, many diets are complicated and difficult to follow. So, many dieters have trouble keeping the pounds off long-term.
Q: I need to lose a lot of weight, fast. Why not just use gastric bypass surgery?
A: Gastric bypass surgeries change how the digestive system works, often restricting how much someone can eat, how many nutrients are absorbed, or both. Yes, these procedures can work for many people. However, these are invasive surgeries. Know the potential risks, and possible side effects. Consult with a physician to learn if a medically-supervised program might create the same results without the potential for risk.
