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.

  • An estimated 22 million children under five are overweight.
  • Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and certain forms of cancer.

Step 5: In consultation with the weight loss physician, set realistic and practical goals
