Diet Doc: Managing Caloric Intake Should Be an Important Aspect of Keto Diet Planning

Escondido, California, UNITED STATES

Oklahoma City, OK, Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Though low-carb diets have been around over a century, the Atkins diet, South Beach Diet and several other versions have boosted its popularity over the past 20 years. Ketogenic or keto dieting is one of the most frequently searched diets on Google. It’s touted as one of the fastest ways to lose extra inches and continues to be used by many public figures for quick weight loss. The biggest misconception about the keto diet, or ketosis is that it somehow breaks the simpler rules of thermogenesis. Diet Doc’s medical team, led by Dr. Nishant Rao wants to remind dieters that when weight loss is the ultimate goal, “Calories still matter in a ketogenic state, so don’t assume that reducing calories isn’t important,” he says.

Other factors are also necessary to consider, especially when someone has had continual struggles with maintaining a healthy weight. “Hormones and metabolism (which Diet Doc tests for), but a high calorie keto diet will still interfere with one fundamental component of any attempt at fat loss - creating a caloric deficit,” emphasizes Dr. Rao. Getting ketosis right begins by first understanding how much protein is needed to maintain muscle mass based on age, height, weight, gender and activity level. Dr. Rao has noticed that when many embark on a keto diet, that this important part of balancing ketosis is missed since ketosis may not preserve muscle as well as was originally thought. To maximize weight loss, Diet Doc utilizes ketosis for its ability reduce blood sugar in combination with reasonable calorie intake and muscle preserving interventions to assist with weight management.
