NAPLES, Fla., March 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- With spring in the air, people are looking for new ways to lose weight for the season, and fad diets are one of the most popular solutions.
As the number one physician-designed, chef-prepared diet meal delivery company in the nation, BistroMD is trying to spread awareness about the health dangers of fad dieting by releasing a series of discussion videos from the company's founding physician, Caroline J. Cederquist, M.D.
"I understand why fad dieting is so popular," explains Dr. Cederquist, a physician who specializes in the field of bariatrics -- the study of healthy weight management.
"Fad diets are popular because most of us are told that these types of diets will work for us. Eat less, eat more fruit, and cut your portions down -- we follow this regimen, but become discouraged when we still don't lose any weight," says Dr. Cederquist.
Often times, people become frustrated when they don't lose weight, and turn to fad diets to help them find a solution.
"What people need to realize is there is not one specific diet that works best for every person. The key to healthy dieting is making sure that your body receives essential nutrients, and that your diet is customized to fit your unique lifestyle and dietary needs," says Dr. Cederquist.
The meals Dr. Cederquist and her team of dietitians have created for BistroMD promote healthy weight loss by making sure your body gets the needed protein, carbohydrates, and fat, in gourmet meals that are spread in proper portions throughout the day.
"People think fat is the enemy, but the right kinds of fats are essential in the process of healthy weight loss," says Dr. Cederquist.
"It is through a healthy diet with foods that contain the right balance of these essential nutrients that our metabolism will actually re-train itself to burn fat more effectively."
