As Part of their Comprehensive Weight Loss Program, Diet Doc Now Teaches Patients how to Identify Hidden Carbohydrates for Safe, Fast and Long Term Weight Loss Success


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2015

Although many people have resigned themselves to the thought that they are stuck with their slow metabolism for life, never being able to maintain a healthy and comfortable weight, this is not true. There are methods to jump start the metabolism. And, while giant food companies increase their advertisements for low-carbohydrate, low-fat and no-fat foods, cleverly worded to lure consumers who think that they are eating healthy, many times the foods contain hidden ingredients and hidden carbohydrates that will sabotage efforts to manage a healthy weight. For this reason, Diet Doc has incorporated education into their comprehensive weight loss programs that teach their patients how to identify hidden carbohydrates in various foods to keep the fat burning gates open and responsive for safe, fast and long term weight loss success.

Most people who are dieting understand that they should avoid donuts, potatoes and pasta, but many do not realize that there are hidden carbohydrates in almost all foods. Even seemingly healthy, high protein foods can contain hidden carbohydrate sources. Making oneself aware of words such as maltodextrin, modified starch, and powdered cellulose and keeping menu options and recipes simple, while avoiding foods with more than a few ingredients can go a long way in managing a healthy weight.

While Diet Doc understands that learning how to identify hidden carbohydrates actually translates into real weight loss success, they also recognize that most people do not have a medical or nutritional background, much less the extra time to read and decipher every food label in the grocery store. Because of this, they designed their diet plans that include nutritionist-designed meal and snack plans that are uniquely and strategically created to be specific to each patient’s age, gender, activity level, nutritional needs and medical conditions.

Creating the patient specific meal and snack plans is only one piece of Diet Doc’s weight loss puzzle. The diet programs also include an initial online doctor visit which enables the doctor to completely review and assess the entire system to uncover and address the real reason for weight gain, unlimited consultations with the expert staff, prescription diet products that are geared toward jump starting the metabolism and opening the fat burning gates, all while eliminating negative dieting side effects of energy loss, between meal hunger and food cravings. Finally, Diet Doc includes doctor supervision and medical guidance throughout with weekly checkup calls to assess each patient’s progress and comfort level.

Qualified patients who desire faster weight loss can enhance their diet plans with Diet Doc’s pure, prescription hormone diet treatments to signal the brain to release, attack and flush stored fat from the belly, hips, thighs, underarms and buttocks at an amazing pace, exclusive diet pills to curb the appetite and eliminate the urge to overindulge and powerful fat burners to burn fat 4 times faster.

New patients can simply contact Diet Doc’s appointment center at 888-934-4451 888-934-4451 free and schedule a phone or Skype consultation with one of the company’s licensed doctors. After a quick and thorough health evaluation and consultation, eligible patients may receive a prescription for one or more of Diet Doc’s powerful weight loss medications shipped directly to their door via one of the company’s contracted licensed United States based pharmacies. Each prescription is manufactured in FDA approved USA pharmacies, and arrives with a certificate of purity.

Diet Doc’s state of the art, comprehensive diet plans have helped patients throughout the country safely and successfully improve their health and restore their figure leading to the company becoming the most trusted and reliable source for safe, fast and long term weight loss success.

Dr. E. Dale Behner Now Provides Patients with Mercury Free Fillings and Other Holistic Dentistry Services in Fishers, IN


Fishers, IN (PRWEB) May 11, 2015

Dr. E. Dale Behner of Dental Care Today, PC, is pleased to announce that he offers a variety of holistic dentistry options in Fishers, IN. This approach is about whole-body wellness through the use of materials and medications that are natural, when feasible, that support healthy living. One example of a holistic approach is to use mercury free fillings, which avoid the dangers associated with continual contact of a material known to cause serious health problems. Dr. Behner works with each patient individually, so that he or she can create a dental care plan that is best suited to his or her unique needs.

Historically, dental professionals frequently treated patients with little regard to the effects of those treatments and how those procedures would ultimately affect their bodies. The mouth was commonly considered separate from other health concerns. Today, there is an overwhelming amount of evidence that proves that any health concerns in the mouth also affect the entire body. In the course of holistic dentistry treatment in Fishers, IN, Dr. Behner discusses practices that promote good health as the first step in preventing oral disease. Lifestyle, diet, reduced stress, exercise, nutrition and sleep are more important for optimal oral health than many realize, alongside consistent brushing and flossing.

Unfortunately, even optimal preventative practices generally cannot prevent all problems before they occur. When a dental disease does exist, Dr. Behner uses holistic dentistry in Fishers, IN, to treat the disease in the most beneficial way possible. He uses digital x-rays because they allow him to decrease the required dose of radiation during treatment. Dr. Behner also uses medications that are alcohol free and contain natural plant extracts. He will utilize these natural methods before he turns to the harsher chemicals found in many western medications. Mercury free fillings are an important part of holistic care because mercury is known to cause serious health problems. In the place of Mercury, he uses porcelain, composite resin or gold. Dr. Behner even has a special cavity-preventing paste that he uses in the place of traditional fluoride varnishes.

Anyone who wants more information about mercury free fillings and other holistic dental procedures is requested to visit Dr. Behner’s website, where he provides patient educational materials. He also invites interested patients to call or stop by his office for one-on-one help.

About the Practice

Dental Care Today, PC, is a general practice offering personalized dental care for patients in Fishers, IN. For more than 25 years, Dr. E. Dale Behner has provided state-of-the-art care, while offering the latest in advanced technology and techniques.

Fitness app guides you step by step, telling you when to speed up or slow down, provides useful tips to improve your form, explains the purpose and benefits of the workout and keeps you motivated. Another great feature is you don’t have to calculate or remember any numbers to perform your workouts effectively as the app will do it all for you.”

“Lindora has more than 40 years of experience helping patients lose weight through a proven treatment program involving proper diet, managing stress and moving more,” said Anthony Tavaglione, director of product management and operations, who added that the app is the “logical extension” of Lindora’s one-on-one, personalized approach to patient care. “The official Lindora Lean for Life!

Our expert, world-class coaches will guide users through each workout giving them all the encouragement and tips they will need to make it fun and effective.”

Dr. Rod J. Rohrich Publishes Retrospective Study on Facelift Surgery in MWL Patients


Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) April 29, 2015

Texas plastic surgeon, Dr. Rod J. Rohrich, and colleagues, have published a retrospective study on special needs and outcomes of facelift surgery in the massive weight loss patient population. The study was published in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Individuals considered to be massive weight loss (MWL) patients are often defined as those who have lost more than 50% of their excess body weight via either diet and exercise or by undergoing bariatric surgery. Facial aesthetics is often one of the greatest concerns for these patients, who often complain about sagging skin in the cheeks and neck.

The study, which carefully reviews Dr. Rohrich’s considerable history of facelift patient outcomes, offers guidance and feedback to plastic surgeons performing facelift surgery on patients who have lost a considerable amount of weight. In comparison to a typical facelift patient, for example, MWL facelift patients will often require a much larger volume of facial fat augmentation, increased tightening of the cheek and neck area to address excess skin, and more extensive elevation of the underlying muscle and facial tissue.

“Massive weight loss patients are a unique class of patients,” explains Dr. Rohrich, the study’s senior author. “As we study the outcomes of these patients, more and more we are finding that special considerations should be taken with these patients to maximize the outcomes of the surgery and reduce complications.”

Dr. Rohrich, a longstanding advocate of individual analysis in facelift surgery, views the study’s results as a good example of the importance of component facelifts which are tailored to each patient’s individual situation. The appropriate surgical plan for these patients, says Dr. Rohrich, will depend on a large number of factors such as the patient’s skin laxity, fat atrophy, and overall facial shape.

“Studies like this are invaluable tools to help us refine our surgical approach so that we can achieve the best, and safest possible outcomes for our patients,” says Dr. Rohrich, who is also editor in chief of the Journal. “Fundamentally, what patients desire is to look like themselves and have their sense of identity restored, something that may be taken away from them after massive weight loss.”

About Dr. Rod J. Rohrich

Dr. Rod J. Rohrich is a Distinguished Teaching Professor and Founding Chairman of the Department of Plastic Surgery at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. Dr. Rohrich graduated from Baylor College of Medicine with high honors, and completed residencies at the University of Michigan Medical Center and fellowships at Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard (hand/microsurgery) and Oxford University (pediatric plastic surgery). He has served as president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the largest organization of board certified plastic surgeons in the world. He repeatedly has been selected by his peers as one of America’s best doctors, and twice has received one of his profession’s highest honors, the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation Distinguished Service Award, which recognizes his contributions to education in plastic surgery. Dr. Rohrich participates in and has led numerous associations and councils for the advancement of plastic and reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Kit Robinson Welcomes New Patients for Dental Implants This New Year, Without Referrals


Hahira, GA (PRWEB) January 14, 2015

This New Year, Dr. Kit Robinson began accepting new patients without a referral for dental implants at his Hahira, GA practice. Dental implants are an effective alternative to temporary dentures. More durable than many temporary forms of tooth replacement, modern implants bond with the jawbone to create a stable base for permanent new teeth that look and feel natural. With good dental hygiene and care, the teeth can last a lifetime with none of the hassles of bridgework or temporary dentures.

The versatility of the dental implants Dr. Robinson places in Hahira, GA allow them to serve as a practical solution for those who are missing one or more teeth in any part of the mouth. With one implant post, the doctor can create a crown to replace a single missing tooth. Two posts allows for bridges that fill a gap of multiple missing teeth. With a few strategically placed posts in positions of maximum bone density and strength, Dr. Robinson will create a new permanent set of teeth that can last for the patient’s lifetime with proper home care and dental cleanings.

Temporary dentures, that have been a traditional solution for those who are missing all teeth on the top or bottom jaw, are associated with many challenges, such as:


    Requires messy pastes or gels to try to hold denture in place
    Food stuck under denture smells unpleasant and irritates gums
    Diet often limited to soft foods that are easy to chew
    Pressure on gums can damage delicate tissue
    Lack of stimulation for jawbone leads to reabsorption (loss) of bone
    Slipping and clicking while talking or eating

The dental implants that Dr. Robinson uses in Hahira, GA are generally made of titanium, a metal that bonds effectively with natural bone to provide firm support for a new tooth or set of teeth. Anchored to the bone like natural teeth, the new replacements do not shift or slip and allow for a complete healthy diet of all types of food.

Dental implants in Hahira, GA are changing lives and eliminating the bother of temporary dentures with a simple office procedure. Consultation with Dr. Robinson is the first step to determining an individual’s unique dental treatment needs and to determine the best course of action. For those who are ready to start the New Year with improved oral health, there is no time like now to think of the teeth.

About the Practice

Robinson Family Dentistry is a general practice offering personalized dental care for patients in Hahira, GA. Dr. Kit Robinson is passionate about dentistry and enjoys using his expertise to improve the oral health of his patients. Dr. Robinson received his Doctorate of Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky Dental School, and believes in continuing education to deliver the latest in dental technology.

Diet Doc Announces Calorie Loading Diet Plans that Help Patients get a Head Start on New Years Weight Loss Resolutions


Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2014

Although it may sound unbelievable, the holidays is the perfect time to launch Diet Doc’s calorie loading diet plans because it allows patients to load up on all of their favorite holiday dishes and jump start their New Year’s weight loss resolutions without anxiety or weight gain worry. Patients are actually encouraged to load up on excess calories to reset the metabolism and prepare the body for ketosis, which will begin during Phase II of the calorie loading diet plans.

Diet Doc combined scientific research from the 80s, when it was discovered that short periods of high fat, high carbohydrate consumption increased the body’s metabolism and fat oxidation, with their modern medical understanding. And, because Diet Doc is dedicated to bringing the safest and most effective method of weight loss to everyone, they partnered with Telemedicine, enabling patients in even the most remote regions of the country to choose the best health care and weight loss doctors in the nation and accelerate their New Year’s weight loss resolutions without leaving the comfort of their own home.

New patients will complete a health questionnaire and schedule an initial online consult with a Diet Doc physician who will review medical history to ensure that their calorie loading diet plans are the best weight loss method based on each patient’s personal lifestyle, nutritional needs and medical conditions. Next, patients are encouraged to load up on their favorite holiday dishes which boosts the metabolism and prepares the body to begin burning this extra fat. While all patients will qualify for meal and snack plans that are tailored to their specific needs, many will be eligible to accelerate fat loss with Diet Doc’s prescription hormone treatments, diet pills and appetite suppressants. These diet products not only promote fast weight loss, but they help patients over the initial weight loss hurdles by suppressing the appetite, and eliminating hunger, cravings and loss of energy during dieting.

Diet Doc’s calorie loading diet plans include unlimited personal attention and support from the entire staff, including certified nutritionists who work closely with each patient to design meal and snack plans. This one-on-one attention enables patients to begin to understand how the body reacts to specific foods and teaches them what food choices will keep their body operating optimally during dieting without compromising weight loss results.

The professional and dedicated staff helps patients learn how to kick bad eating habits and begin incorporating nutrient-rich, low calorie foods into their menu. Because carbohydrate consumption is streamlined, the body naturally forces fat that has become dangerously and comfortably nestled in the hard to reach areas into the bloodstream and quickly flushed from the system. Patients quickly begin noticing the loss of pounds and inches in these difficult to lose areas.

Diet Doc monitors each patient’s weight loss progress, attitude and comfort level with scheduled weekly checkup calls. This level of personal service cannot be duplicated by the competition and enables the doctors to quickly modify the calorie loading diet plans should weight loss taper.

Diet Doc has successfully guided thousands of patients toward improved emotional and physical health with their medically supervised calorie loading diet plans and urges those of all shapes and sizes, and in any part of the country, to call today to learn how to get a head start on their New Year’s weight loss resolutions.
