Options to lose weight in New York City

„ a diet low in calories
„ increased physical activity
„ behavior therapy
„ prescription medications
„ weight-loss surgery

Of the above options, we are going to concentrate on the first four options to lose weight in this article.

VLCD and LCD diet options

A very low-calorie diet (VLCD) and low calorie diet (LCD) use specially made formulas such as protein shakes, protein bars, soups, and other weight loss products called meal replacements for fast weight loss results.

Exercises for losing weight in NYC

Although we were traditionally told that exercising helps with weight loss, recent large scale studies failed to show any significant weight loss at a population level. This most likely due to the following:

  • Exercise burns calories on the one hand and inceases hunger on the other hand thereby negating any weight loss.
  • Exercise also can build muscle tissue which is about twice as heavy as fat tissue.
  • It takes about 18 miles of walking just to lose one pound of body fat which is a lot of walking.

Because of the above factors, exercise is not a very strong measure to lose weight.

Changing behaviors

Changing eating habits, stopping soda or fruit juice, not eating out as much, controlling portions etc are some of the things you can do but these are better said than done.

Medical weight loss in NYC

Losing weight without surgery but under the supervision of a trained obesity medicine physician is called medical weight loss.

This may involve prescription weight loss medications, VLCD and LCD diet plans, behavior change and increased physical activity all under the supervision of a trained weight loss doctor.
