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 NYC

If you are overweight, or obese in NYC and wants to lose weight safely without surgery, you are not alone.

According to the Centers For Disease Control (CDC):Woman-On-Weight-Scale1

  • About 35.9% of all adults in the United States age 20 years and over who are obese
  • About another 33.3% are in the overweight category but not obese.
  • Combined together, 69.2% of all adults are either overweight or obese!

Who is considered to be overweight?

Do you know whether or not your current weight is healthy? Obese and overweight mean that your weight is greater than it should be for your health as determined by your body mass index (BMI). who are overweight (BMI of 25 to 29.9) and have two or more risk factors, it is recommended that you lose weight.

Assessing Health Risks Associated with Overweight and Obesity

BMI, although it can help understand your risk to some degree, it cannot fully help understand the metabolic risk associated with weight as it does not take in to account your distribution of weight.

Here are the factors to consider to understand your risk

If you have weight in or around the belly or upper part of the body or have a history of cholesterol abnormalities or blood pressure issues, prediatebes etc, you might be at risk for metabolic syndrome. Answer these simple questions to understand if you might be at risk for metabolic syndrome. You might need a copy of your latest blood work to answer these questions or have your doctor answer these questions for you.

 

Is your waist circumference at the biggest point over 36 inches in women or 40 in men? * Yes No
Lipids: Do you have elevated triglycerides: Equal to or greater than 150 mg/dL (1.7 mmol/L) or on treatment for elevated triglycerides? Yes No
Lipids: Reduced HDL(good) cholesterol – <40 in men or <50 in women? Yes No
Fasting Blood Sugar: Equal to or greater than 100 mg/dL (5.6 mmol/L) or use of medication for hyperglycemia? Yes No
Blood Pressure: Equal to or greater than 130/85 mm Hg or use of medication for hypertension? Yes No
* Certain ethnicities such as Asians, or South East Asians meet lower criteria

A score of 3 or More meets the criteria for Metabolic Syndrome!


If you answered yes to three or more of these questions, you have metabolic syndrome. It is a cluster of conditions caused by underlying insulin resistance and can be improved or reversed with proper treatment of the insulin resistance under careful monitoring and treatment of a bariatric physician trained in the metabolic aspects of Obesity.

If you are overweight or obese, or have risk factors for metabolic syndrome even with normal weight, you may want to consider seeing a physician trained in Obesity or Metabolic Medicine such as the W8MD (pronounced Weight MD) physicians.

What are the options for weight loss in New York City?

Weight-Loss Medicines or So Called Diet Pills for weight loss!

Weight-loss medicines approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) might be an option for some people.

If you’re not successful at losing 1 pound a week after 6 months of using lifestyle changes, medicines may help. You should only use medicines as part of a program that includes diet, physical activity, and behavioral changes.

Weight-loss medicines might be suitable for adults who are obese (a BMI of 30 or greater). People who have BMIs of 27 or greater, and who are at risk for heart disease and other health conditions, also may benefit from weight-loss medicines.

Sibutramine (Meridia®) For Weight Loss – Off The Market Now

As of October 2010, the weight-loss medicine sibutramine (Meridia®) was taken off the market in the United States. Research showed that the medicine may raise the risk of heart attack and stroke.

Orlistat (Xenical® and Alli®) – For Weight Loss

Orlistat (Xenical®) causes a weight loss between 5 and 10 pounds, although some people lose more weight. Most of the weight loss occurs within the first 6 months of taking the medicine.zocdoc-patient-reviews-dr-prab-r-tumpati-md

People taking Xenical need regular checkups with their doctors, especially during the first year of taking the medicine. During checkups, your doctor will check your weight, blood pressure, and pulse and may recommend other tests. He or she also will talk with you about any medicine side effects and answer your questions.

The FDA also has approved Alli®, an over-the-counter (OTC) weight-loss aid for adults. Alli is the lower dose form of orlistat. Alli is meant to be used along with a reduced-calorie, low-fat diet and physical activity. In studies, most people taking Alli lost 5 to 10 pounds over 6 months.

Both Xenical and Alli reduce the absorption of fats, fat calories, and vitamins A, D, E, and K to promote weight loss. Both medicines also can cause mild side effects, such as oily and loose stools.

Although rare, some reports of liver disease have occurred with the use of orlistat. More research is needed to find out whether the medicine plays a role in causing liver disease. Talk with your doctor if you’re considering using Xenical or Alli to lose weight. He or she can discuss the risks and benefits with you.

You also should talk with your doctor before starting orlistat if you’re taking blood-thinning medicines or being treated for diabetes or thyroid disease. Also, ask your doctor whether you should take a multivitamin due to the possible loss of some vitamins.

Lorcaserin Hydrochloride (Belviq®) and Qsymia™ For Weight Loss in NYC

In July 2012, the FDA approved two new medicines for chronic (ongoing) weight management. Lorcaserin hydrochloride (Belviq®) and Qsymia™ are approved for adults who have a BMI of 30 or greater. (Qsymia is a combination of two FDA-approved medicines: phentermine and topiramate.)

These medicines also are approved for adults with a BMI of 27 or greater who have at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high blood cholesterol.

Both medicines are meant to be used along with a reduced-calorie diet and physical activity.

Other Medicines  For Weight Loss

Some prescription medicines are used for weight loss, but aren’t FDA-approved for treating obesity.

They include:

Medicines to treat depression. Some medicines for depression cause an initial weight loss and then a regain of weight while taking the medicine.

Medicines to treat seizures. Two medicines used for seizures, topiramate and zonisamide, have been shown to cause weight loss.

These medicines are being studied to see whether they will be useful in treating obesity.

Medicines to treat diabetes. Metformin may cause small amounts of weight loss in people who have obesity and diabetes. It’s not known how this medicine causes weight loss, but it has been shown to reduce hunger and food intake.

Generic Combination of Phentermine and Topiramate like in the brand name Qsymia available at W8MD for a low price of $30.oo per month supply for Phentermine and a $30.00 for 3o tablets of Topiramate at select W8MD centers.

Dr. Tumpati has passed a written board examination in the field of Bariatric Medicine and is also Board Certified in Sleep Medicine and Internal Medicine. The doctor’s of W8MD partner with each patient to develop a custom weight management program to best meet their individual needs taking into account their medical history, lifestyle and goals.
