More weight loss success stories NYC 

Are you searching the web for ways to lose weight fast in NYC

If so, you are not alone. As overweight or obesity now affects close to 70 percent of all US adults, more and more Americans are searching online for cheap, fast, and quick ways to lose weight.

Where to start to *lose weight?

Start with understanding your body mass index using any of the online BMI calculators including the one available on http://www.w8md.com

If your body mass index(BMI) is over 25 and below 30, you are considered overweight.
BMI between 30 – 35 is mild degree of obesity
BMI bentween 35-40 is considered moderate Obesity
BMI above 40 is considered morbid obesity

What is healthy weight loss?
It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits.

How many calories to eat to lose weight?

To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in.

To lose one pound of weight, you need to reduce your calories by about 3,500. So, if you reduce your caloric intake by 500—1000 calories per day, you are expected to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week assuming you are able to keep track of the calories, including hidden calories, strictly.

How to Keep track of calories for weight loss?

It is, however, a bit hard for most people to keep tract of calories. In that situation, a meal replacement or labelled products with proper nutritional information might be an option.

Fortunately, there are many smart phone apps that you can download from the app store of your phone that might assist you in keeping track of the calories.

Role of physical activity for weight loss and maintanance!

t might come as a shock to most people but when it comes to losing weight, exercise alone is pretty useless, according to Dr. Eric Ravussin, a prominent exercise researcher and chair of diabetes and metabolism at Lousiana State University as reported on Time Magazine.

This very interesting article on Time Magazine goes on to add that many recent studies have found that exercise isn’t as important in helping people lose weight as you hear so regularly in gym advertisements or on shows like The Biggest Loser — or, for that matter, from magazines like this one.

This is what Bally’s Fitness Says on their website:

You might not expect to hear this from the nation’s leading exercise and fitness company, but here’s the hard truth:

When it comes to losing weight, exercise alone usually doesn’t cut it. Most people need a COMBINED approach that addresses both diet and exercise.

http://www.ballyfitness.com/achieve-your-goals/fitness-tips/weight-loss-tips/fitness-tips_exercise-and-more.aspx

Why Exercise Alone Does Not Help?

According to Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD, a fellowship trained obesity medicine physician and founder W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America, exercise stimulates appetite, and also builds heavier muscle, two factors that negate any weight lost through burning of calories!

Exercise is still important!

However, exercise does help in combination with diet or for maintenance. Once you’ve achieved a healthy weight, by relying on healthful eating and physical activity most days of the week (about 60—90 minutes, moderate intensity), you are more likely to be successful at keeping the weight off over the long term.

Losing weight is not easy, and it takes commitment. But if you’re ready to get started, we’ve got a step-by-step guide to help get you on the road to weight loss and better health.

Benefits of Losing Weight!
The good news is that no matter what your weight loss goal is, even a modest weight loss, such as 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight, is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars.

Even a seemingly small amount of 5 pounds of weight loss, if maitained over the years can significantly lower your health risks by as much as 40% in women and 48% in men.

For example, if you weigh 200 pounds, a 5 percent weight loss equals 10 pounds, bringing your weight down to 190 pounds. While this weight may still be in the “overweight” or “obese” range, this modest weight loss can decrease your risk factors for chronic diseases related to obesity.
