PHILADELPHIA, March 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- With new studies recently uncovering a connection between certain types of carbohydrates and lung cancer, Diet Doc has placed added emphasis on developing diet plans that drastically reduce, or eliminate altogether, high-glycemic carbohydrates from the diet. The Diet Doc medically supervised diet plans work towards helping patients lose weight safely and effectively, while also changing long-term eating habits to avoid cancer causing high glycemic carbohydrates.
A new link between high glycemic carbohydrates and lung cancer has placed new emphasis on the dangers of a high carbohydrate diet. Scientists from the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center have found that people who eat a diet full of high glycemic index foods had a 49% higher risk of developing lung cancer, even if they have never smoked a single cigarette.
"We observed a 49% increased risk of lung cancer among subjects with the highest daily glycemic index compared to those with the lowest daily glycemic index," said Xifeng Wu, professor of epidemiology at the University of Texas, and senior author of the study. "The associates were more pronounced among subjects who were never smokers."
Fortunately, the link between lung cancer and carbohydrates is seemingly limited to those carbohydrates that have a high glycemic index, such as refined carbohydrates like processed white bread, bagels, and white rice.
This new information provides yet another reason for those trying to lose weight to do so. The Diet Doc system has always been reliant on low carbohydrate meal plans, specifically imploring patients to avoid high glycemic carbohydrates.
The Diet Doc medical weight loss system uses a combination of doctor supervision and evaluation, and potent prescription diet aids to produce fast and safe weight loss, relying heavily on a reduced calorie diet plan low in carbohydrates, especially refined carbohydrates now linked to lung cancer.
The typical Diet Doc diet plan begins with a simple and convenient doctor evaluation, conducted from the patient's own home via Skype or telephone. During this evaluation, the patient's individual factors are considered before developing a personalized diet plan to fit the patient's needs and personal goals.
Unlike other medically supervised diet plans, Diet Doc offers unlimited access to their staff of professional weight loss doctors, nurses, nutritionists and experienced diet coaches six days per week.
Eliminating high glycemic carbohydrates from the diet has always been a staple of the Diet Doc diet plan. The company provides comprehensive treatment for weight loss including doctor supervision, unlimited consults, custom tailored meal plans, great diet products, and potent prescription diet aids to help boost results.
