Benefits of losing weight in New York City

Things to consider for a healthy eating in New York City

Consider consuming nutrient-dense foods within and across the food groups, especially whole grains, fruits, vegetables, low-fat or fat-free milk or milk products, and lean meats and other protein sources.

Limit the intake of saturated and trans fats, cholesterol, added sugars, sodium (salt), and alcohol.

Limit caloric intake to meet caloric needs.

All Americans should avoid unhealthy weight gain, and those whose weight is too high may also need to lose weight.

Why Are Nutrition and Weight Status Important?

Diet and body weight are related to health status. Good nutrition is important to the growth and development of children. A healthful diet also helps Americans reduce their risks for many health conditions, including:

  • Overweight and obesity
  • Malnutrition
  • Iron-deficiency anemia
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Dyslipidemia (poor lipid profiles)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoporosis
  • Oral disease
  • Constipation
  • Diverticular disease
  • Some cancers

Understanding Nutrition and Weight Status

Diet

Diet reflects the variety of foods and beverages consumed over time and in settings such as worksites, schools, restaurants, and the home. Interventions to support a healthier diet can help ensure that:

  • Individuals have the knowledge and skills to make healthier choices.
  • Healthier options are available and affordable.

Social Determinants of Diet

Demographic characteristics of those with a more healthful diet vary with the nutrient or food studied. However, most Americans need to improve some aspect of their diet.

Social factors thought to influence diet include:

  • Knowledge and attitudes
  • Skills
  • Social support
  • Societal and cultural norms
  • Food and agricultural policies
  • Food assistance programs
  • Economic price systems

Physical Determinants of Diet

Access to and availability of healthier foods can help people follow healthful diets. For example, better access to retail venues that sell healthier options may have a positive impact on a person’s diet; these venues may be less available in low-income or rural neighborhoods.

The places where people eat appear to influence their diet. For example, foods eaten away from home often have more calories and are of lower nutritional quality than foods prepared at home.

Weight

Because weight is influenced by energy (calories) consumed and expended, interventions to improve weight can support changes in diet or physical activity. They can help change individuals’ knowledge and skills, reduce exposure to foods low in nutritional value and high in calories, or increase opportunities for physical activity. Interventions can help prevent unhealthy weight gain or facilitate weight loss among obese people. They can be delivered in multiple settings, including health care settings, worksites, or schools.

Obesity is a problem throughout the population. However, among adults, the prevalence is highest for middle-aged people and for non-Hispanic black and Mexican American women. Among children and adolescents, the prevalence of obesity is highest among older and Mexican American children and non-Hispanic black girls. The association of income with obesity varies by age, gender, and race/ethnicity.

Weight Loss Doctor NYC

Prab R Tumpati, MD
Prab R Tumpati, MD
Founder, W8MD medical weight loss centers

Dr Prab R. Tumpati, MD our medical director is a board certified physician with training and experience in the fields of Sleep Medicine, Internal Medicine and Obesity Medicine.

As the founder of W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America, Dr Tumpati is one of the few medical weight loss physicians in New York City with a thorough education in the new field of obesity medicine and is familiar with the science and art of treating overweight or obese patients, both adults and pediatric patient populations.

Dr. Tumpati obtained his medical degree from Osmania Medical College, Hyderabad, India and completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Abington Memorial Hospital, Abington, PA.

With weight loss and sleep medicine offices in 3 states, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania, Dr. Tumpati divides his time between his offices in Greater Philadelphia, New Jersey and New York city treating seeing patients for medical weight loss and sleep disorders. As he is also an internal medicine physician, he does accept a few primary care patients with a focus on preventive care.

Dr. Tumpati is familiar with and is experienced in using the various evidence based tools in order to help his patients in NYC lose weight fast and safe under medical supervision including appetite suppressants or diet pills when medically appropriate. Dr. Tumpati can prescribe both the traditional weight loss medications also called diet pills such as Phentermine (Adipex), Phendimetrazine (Bontril), Diethyl propion(Tenuate), Orlistat(Xenical) and the new weight loss medications such as Phentermine and Topiramate(Qsymia), Lorcaserin(Belviq), Bupropion / Naltrexone (Contrave), and Liraglutide (Saxenda).

Unlike many weight loss doctors in NYC, Dr. Tumpati spends a lot of time educating patients on the true causes of weight gain including the complex hormonal, metabolic, nutritional, sleep related and other factors causing weight gain. Instead of the usual approach of “blame the patient” for weight gain, he truly understands that it may be the fault of the individual patient for weight gain as many of the factors leading to weight gain may be beyond the control of the individual patient.

Dr. Tumpati’s focus is reversing the true causes of weight gain for sustained and effective weight loss in NYC instead of a quick fix for long term weight loss success in NYC. Dr. Tumpati is very passionate about educating the public on weight management, wellness, nutrition and sleep disorders and has been interviewed by both print magazines, TV stations, and Radio shows.
