Phoenix, AZ, Dec. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Many dieters are scratching their heads about low-calorie diets since there are many outlets offering conflicting information regarding their effectiveness and safety. The original hCG diet (or the Simeons protocol) for instance, has been considered controversial for its very low calorie and protein levels, and one-size-fits-all model. These low levels (less than 800 calories per day) can result in instances of muscle loss, along with fatigue and loss of energy. To counter this, the DTG protocol for the hCG diet will determine the correct protein intake for every patient based upon height, weight, age and activity level. Thus, ensuring that enough protein is consumed for normal function and is compensated for based on individual lifestyle needs.

Therefore, the key is that macronutrients are set appropriately, giving the body the proteins it needs from the diet (not muscle), and enough net carbs to then allow the maximum amount of energy needed to come from the body’s natural storage, or body fat. Several research studies have shown the long-term benefits of VLC (very low calorie) diets along with the VLCK (very low-calorie ketogenic diet), especially when the risks of obesity are taken into account.

Though very low-calorie diets may generate rapid fat loss, the safest balance can be achieved and maintained by certified medical weight loss doctors and coaches. These professionals can take into account pre-existing health conditions which may not be appropriate for long term VLC diets, or some components, such as the low carb, keto diet. Patient screening is necessary to ensure that there are no such underlying health issues. Some conditions with additional considerations include; insulin dependent diabetics, kidney disease, gout or electrolyte imbalances. Medical weight loss specialists such as Diet Doc offer balanced, and customized low-calorie diet plans ranging from 800-1200 calories per day.
