    Diet Doc Telemedicine

    Anyone else heard of Diet Doc? It's supposedly some telemedicine diet program that's really popular right now and it's good for heart health supposedly. Also, the company behind this plan claims that over 97% of patients lose 20 or more pounds per month. This sounds a little bogus to me. Has anyone else heard of this or tried it?

The only doctors I trust are my personal physicians.
    That's a really good point. I never really thought if it like that, but you're right...I mean, look at Dr. Oz...

I don't trust claims like that for two reasons. 1- is that this percentage likely means that they are including very few people among those patients and 2 - losing 20 or more pounds in a month sounds like a stretch to me because I don't feel like that accurately represents the average overweight (not obese) individual and it makes me wonder what kind of diet needs to be followed to reach this amount of weight loss!
    I agree. Sounds bogus to me. It's always fishy when there are statistics posted that sound a little too good to be true. Personally, I would stay away from this one.
