Does exercising alone help you lose weight in New York City?

  • Does exercise alone help you lose weight?
  • What is the role of physical activity or exercises for losing weight?
  • Do they have to be combined with other measures to lose weight such as a Very Low Calorie or Low Calorie Diets?
  • What do the studies show on exercising for weight loss?

While it may be a bit surprising to some, recent well established and well accepted research has shown that exercise alone is pretty useless for weight loss as exercise stimulates appetite and also builds heavier muscle.

It is the VLCD or LCD diet with or without exercises although with exercise when possible is preferred. When using the fast weight loss method such as Very Low Calorie Diet, it is important to be done under medical supervision. The good news is that most insurances cover physician weight loss now, thanks to the 2010 Affordable Care Act or Obamacare even if you have private insurance or Medicare.

I am a bit overweight and am tired of it. Where do I start for weight loss?

Understand Your Risk

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is a useful measure of overweight and obesity. It is calculated from your height and weight. BMI is an estimate of body fat and a good gauge of your risk for diseases that can occur with more body fat. The higher your BMI, the higher your risk for certain diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers.

Although BMI can be used for most men and women, it does have some limits:

  • It may overestimate body fat in athletes and others who have a muscular build.
  • It may underestimate body fat in older persons and others who have lost muscle.

You can use the BMI tool available on our main page.

Status BMI
Underweight
Below 18.5
Normal
18.5–24.9
Overweight
25.0–29.9
Obesity
30.0 and Above

Waist Circumference

Measuring waist circumference helps screen for possible health risks that come with overweight and obesity. If most of your fat is around your waist rather than at your hips, you’re at a higher risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes. This risk goes up with a waist size that is greater than 35 inches for women or greater than 40 inches for men. To correctly measure your waist, stand and place a tape measure around your middle, just above your hipbones. Measure your waist just after you breathe out.

Medical Conditions Associated With Obesity ny-office-1.jpg

Along with being overweight or obese, the following conditions will put you at greater risk for heart disease and other conditions:

Obesity Related Risk Factors

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol)
  • Low HDL cholesterol (“good” cholesterol)
  • High triglycerides
  • High blood glucose (sugar)
  • Family history of premature heart disease
  • Physical inactivity
  • Cigarette smoking

For people who are considered obese (BMI greater than or equal to 30) or those who are overweight (BMI of 25 to 29.9) and have two or more risk factors, it is recommended that you lose weight. Even a small weight loss (between 5 and 10 percent of your current weight) will help lower your risk of developing diseases associated with obesity. People who are overweight, do not have a high waist measurement, and have fewer than two risk factors may need to prevent further weight gain rather than lose weight.

How do I know my metabolic risk related to weight?

A waist to hip ratio of over 1 in men or more than 0.8 in women increases the metabolic and cardiovascular risk. You measure the waist and hips at the most prominent sections and calculate the ratio.

Since we accept insurance for the physician visits, our program can be way cheaper than even non medical programs such as Jenny Craig’s per pound of weight lost!

These plans reduce calories using meal replacements and simple meals for as long as several months to reduce weight rapidly.

VLCD and LCD Low Calorie, Low Carbohydrate Balanced and Affordable Meal Replacements

We offer 800 calorie very low calorie diets with or without meal replacement. We also offer 1000-1500 calorie Low Calorie Diets with or without meal replacements along with appropriate medications for fast and safe weight loss under careful medical supervision and your insurance might cover the cost of the visits.

We carry delicious and the most affordable Protein Meal Replacements with protein bars, shakes, smoothies, soups, and other weight loss supplements that can safely be used as liquid meal replacements lose the weight on your own although it is a bit more time consuming and can potentially be frustrating to do the calorie counting.

Since we only accept about 10 new patients a week, call the office at 718-946-5500 for more information.

Losing weight in NYC
Losing weight in NYC

Start with knowing where you are with a body mass index calculator, a measuring tape, a copy of the last blood work, if have any and understand where you stand.

Step 1.
Check your BMI using an online BMI calculator. Go to http://www.w8md.com and find the BMI calculator on the right side of the page, put in your information, and find out your BMI.
Step 2.
2. Get a measureing tape and measure your waist circumference in the most prominent part of the belly. Also measure the hip circumference. If you are male and have a waist of over 40 inches in the most prominent part, if you are a female and have a waist of over 36 inches, you may have underlying insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome that may be causing your weight gain, especially in the belly and upper part of the body. (For Asians, the threshold is 35 inches for men and 31 inches for women)
Step 3.
Check if you meet the criteria for metabolic syndrome. Go to http://w8md.com/w8d-healthy-living/w8md-metabolic-syndrome-meter and see if you meet the criteria for metabolic syndrome.

Step 4.
Find a weight loss program that accepts health insurance (if you have health insurance)

Step 5.
Consult with an Obesity Medicine Trained Physician knowledgeable about metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and other causes for weigth gain and can help you lose weight safely and effectively using evidence based methods

Step 6.
Start a Low Calorie or Very Low Calorie Diet Plan that cuts you calories by about 500-1000 calories a day so you can lose about 1-2 pounds a weekStep 7. Start walking or other low to moderate intensivity exercise program. Understand that exercise alone is useless for weigth loss but in combination with a reduced calorie diet, it helps.

Step 8.
Start a behavior change plan to help you stay on track with your goals.

How can W8MD Weight Loss Center in NYC Help?

718-946-5500 is the number to call to set up a consultation today. Most insurances are accepted or if not, a consultation is only $90.00. What have you got to lose except those extra unwanted pounds?

Insulin Resistance

Insulin is the key hormone for fat gain and loss. After you eat carbohydrates, your blood sugar levels will increase. It is the insulin’s job to push the glucose into the cells where it is used for energy. Insulin also helps muscles, fat and liver cells store sugar that can be released when it is needed. Each cell surface has insulin receptors which act like little doors that open and close to regulate the amount of blood sugar allowed to flow in.

If the body takes in too much simple sugars found in carbohydrates, the cells are bombarded with so much insulin that the “doors” begin to malfunction and shut down. If the doors aren’t open, the pancreas feels the need to produce even more insulin to push into the cells because it cannot perform its function to lower sugar levels tending to leave the insulin floating in the blood stream. A vicious cycle is now in place resulting in a condition called Insulin resistance which inhibits our fat cells from giving up their stores of energy to let us lose weight.

Metabolic Syndrome is a cluster of conditions including high blood pressure, high blood sugar levels, excess body fat, especially “belly fat” or abnormal cholesterol levels; which, when they occur together, increase your risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Having only one of these conditions doesn’t mean that you have metabolic syndrome. However, any of these conditions will increase your risk of serious disease. If more than one of these conditions occur in combination, your risk is even greater.

If you have metabolic syndrome or any of the components of metabolic syndrome, aggressive lifestyle changes can delay or even prevent the development of many serious health problems.
