As Obesity and overweight status affects close to about 70 percent of adult Americans, more and more people are searching online for ways to lose weight.

For adults, overweight and obesity ranges are determined by using weight and height to calculate a number called the “body mass index” (BMI) altough it is not a great tool in determinning a persons risk. BMI is used because, for most people, it correlates with their amount of body fat.

•An adult who has a BMI between 25 and 29.9 is considered overweight.
•An adult who has a BMI of 30 or higher is considered obese.
See the following table for an example.

It is important to remember that although BMI correlates with the amount of body fat, BMI does not directly measure body fat.

BMI is just one indicator of potential health risks associated with being overweight or obese. For assessing someone’s likelihood of developing overweight- or obesity-related diseases, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute guidelines recommend looking at two other predictors:

More than the BMI, a waist circumference of over 40 inches in the mid-section for men or over 36 inches for women can serve as a rough guide in understanding your risk.

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.
