Philadelphia Weight Loss Doctor Issues Warning about End of Summer Lose Weight Fast Programs

Dr. Jon Fisher, one of Philadelphia's most respected medical weight loss doctors, warns about the dangers of programs targeting people who want to lose weight fast.

With only a month left until the end of summer, many people might be in a hurry to lose a few pounds before the beaches close. If so, be careful of those heavily advertised (and often misleading) products seen on the internet or at local stores promoting "fast, effortless" weight loss without exercise or lifestyle changes. While these companies are very good at telling the consumer what they want to hear, when looked at closely, their products often involve purchasing pre-packaged meals or drinks, herbal pills or a "starvation" diet plan that can be unsafe, costly and often helps people lose nothing more than their money!

Dr. Jon Fisher, the owner and medical weight loss doctor at Dr. Fisher’s Medical Weight Loss Centers in Philadelphia, PA says, “These so-called ‘miracle’ weight loss plans and products often send dieters into a cycle of quick weight loss, followed by a ‘rebound’ weight gain once normal eating resumes. Sadly, in many cases, the weight gained back is often greater than what was originally lost while on the diet plan!”

When asked what's the best way to quickly shed a few pounds without the negative repercussions, Dr. Fisher responds “Consult with a doctor, dietitian, or other qualified healthcare professional to review a patient’s medical history and determine the ideal healthy body weight before starting any diet plan. With this information, a custom weight loss program can be created to help one safely lose the desired amount of weight.”

“Eating for your summer body is not about starvation”, states Dr. Fisher. “For someone to stick to a new way of eating, it has to become a lifestyle change. This means that your diet must provide both healthy foods and a few pleasures to keep you interested. Moderation is key.”

Dr. Fisher also stresses the importance of monitoring progress, “Studies show that people who track key points of their diet plan, especially with the aid of an online system, lose more weight than those who diet without one. In fact, a report published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity showed significantly more successful weight loss results from those who planned their meals, tracked calories and tracked fat on most days of the week. That's why as part of our Body by Fisher Now Program, we offer the Body Focus EZDietPlanner & Fitness Tracker ™ App. This online weight loss tool will help you follow our program and monitor your progress online or on-the-go.”
