LOS ANGELES, Sept. 30, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mood and emotion significantly impact how much, how often and what food choices one makes. Emotional eaters generally turn to food, not because they are actually hungry, but for comfort during times of stress, loneliness, anxiety, depression and frustration. These "comfort foods" are generally high in fat and laden with sugar and provide a temporary mood improvement by triggering the brain to release serotonin and dopamine, the "feel good" chemicals, leaving patients with a short-lived feeling of calmness.
Diet Doc understands that emotional eaters require a deeper understanding of individual triggers and specific imbalances of emotional neurotransmitters and that these people need much more than a cookie-cutter, outlined diet plan. For this reason, the company has assembled a team of experts who focus on and uncover the real reason why patients reach for unhealthy foods during times of stress, loneliness, depression and anxiety.
At Diet Doc, each patient's past medical history and current health conditions are carefully evaluated. A personal, one-on-one online consultation with a Diet Doc physician enables the doctor to assess the entire system to uncover hormonal imbalances and triggers that may be causing the patient to reach for unhealthy foods. Written recommendations may include prescription hormone treatments that generate fast weight loss and help patients over initial weight loss hurdles. Diet Doc's exclusive diet pills and supplements, such as Saffron Extract and Chromium Picolinate may be included to support normal serotonin levels in the brain and regulate neurochemicals related to feelings of satiety. Patients will also work closely with nutritionists to design meal and snack plans that are low in calories, but leave the dieter feeling full and satisfied and that help control the urge to reach for comfort foods during difficult times.
Diet Doc has designed a support system that monitors each patient's progress, attitude and comfort level throughout their weight loss journey. This team is available 6 days per week and eager to lend their unlimited support, guidance and encouragement.
Although the FDA recently approved Contrave, marketed as a weight loss/anti-addiction drug, trial results revealed that 42 percent of patients lost only 7.5 pounds after one year, while an in-house Diet Doc clinical study of over 25,000 actual patients revealed an average loss of 25 pounds per month. By focusing on the real reason for weight gain, targeting and attacking emotional triggers, tailoring diet plans that are specific to each patient's personal needs and providing FDA approved diet products, the company has become the leader in medical weight loss and has helped thousands overcome emotional eating.
