w8md weight loss w8md weight loss
  1. Weight Loss 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.
  2. Weight Loss Step 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).
  3. Weight Loss 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.
  4. Weight Loss Step 4.
    Find a weight loss program that accepts health insurance (if you have health insurance)
  5. Weight Loss 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
  6. Weight Loss 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 week
  7. Weight Loss Step 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.
  8. Weight Loss Step 8.
    Start a behavior change plan to help you stay on track with your goals.

How to lose weight in New York City – Best weight loss options reviewed by a weight loss doctor

What scientists call What scientists call “Overweight” changes with our knowledge of human health (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

If you are a bit overweigtht or obese, you probably know that losing weight is never easy. While most people over simplify this and say “eat less, and exercise more”, you know that it is not as simple as that and if it is – 70 percent of the entire population would not be dealing with this issue of obesity or being overweight?

As a physician trained in the new field of obesity medicine and founder of W8MD medical weight loss centers of America, I want to review the best weight loss options for safe, and effective weight loss.

Before we discuss the weight loss options – these are the questions to consider

  • How does my weight affect my health?
  • Do I have a health problem that is causing me to be overweight?
  • How will losing weight help me?
  • What is a healthy weight for me?
  • How much weight do I need to lose?
  • How long should it take me to lose weight?
  • What are healthy ways to lose weight and keep it off?
  • How do I change my eating habits?
  • What kinds of physical activity do I need to do?
  • Could a weight-loss program help me?

How is obesity treated?

Despite a million products, there are about 6 proven strategies to treat obesity:

  • a diet low in calories
  • increased physical activity
  • behavior therapy
  • prescription medications
  • weight-loss surgery
  • correction of metabolic factors leading to weight gain such as insulin resistance, sleep problems etc.

‘What does your doctor offer for weight loss?

Most physicians have nothing to offer their overweight patients other than simply say“Lose Weight!” or hand out a diet sheet. This is not useful for most patients as obesity needs a more thorough and structured approach!

Insurance coverage for weight loss

Affordable Care Act of 2010 mandates all insurances, including Medicare, to provide full insurance coverage for obesity!  Depending on your insurance plan, you may be able to get these services at no cost to you. Talk to your insurance provider to learn more as this is mandated by the 2010 Affordable Care Act.

How to lose fat weight fast

Weight Loss Science Reviewed By A Weight Loss Doctor

  • Are you a bit overweight or obese? Overwhelmed-Obese-Woman-Looking-398
  • Are you searching for ways to lose weight or body fat?
  • Are you interested in understanding what is causing you to gain weight?
  • Do you have belly fat or upper body weight that you are trying to lose?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone. As a fellowship trained obesity medicine physician, let me review proven and effective ways to lose weight.

No matter what anybody might tell you  – there are about 5 proven ways to lose weight.

Obesity is treated using one or more of these 5 proven methods for weight loss:

Weight Loss Option 1.

A diet low in calories using Low Calorie Diets (LCD’s) or Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD)
Weight Loss Option 2.

Increased physical activity most effectively with diet low in calories as exercise alone is not that useful for weight loss
Weight Loss Option 3.

Intensive Behavior Therapy(IBT) by a trained obesity medicine physician
Weight Loss Option 4.

Prescription medications such as Phentermine, the new weight loss drug Qsymia, or other medications
Weight Loss Option 5.

Weight-loss bariatric surgery which shrinks the stomach and forces you to have a Low Calorie Diet (number 1 or number 2). Since the stomach can re-expand after a couple of years, and given the complications, risks of surgery etc., bariatric surgery for weight loss is not for every body.

 Let us look at each of these weight loss options and how to combine different options such as VLCD or LCD with a weight loss medication, with a little bit of exercise for optimal and fast weight loss.

What is Very Low Calorie Diet?

A very low-calorie diet (VLCD) is not just any diet that is low in calories. It is a special type of diet that replaces all of your meals with prepared formulas, often in the form of liquid shakes such as the W8MD’s Meal Replacement shakes, smoothies, bars, and other weight loss meal replacement supplements.

A VLCD may be used for a short time to promote quick weight loss among some people who are considered to be obese. The diet requires close care from your doctor and is usually combined with other ways to lose weight

Do not go on a VLCD on your own. If you need to lose weight, talk a weight loss doctor about the approaches that may work best for you.

What is VLCD or Very Low Calorie Diet?w8md-pudding-shake-chocolate

A very low-calorie diet (VLCD) is not just any diet that is low in calories, usually around 800 calories under careful medical supervision. It is a special type of diet that replaces all or most of your meals with prepared formulas, often in the form of liquid shakes.

A VLCD may be used for a short time to promote quick weight loss among some people who are considered to be obese. The diet requires close care from your doctor and is usually combined with other ways to lose weight.

If you need to lose weight, and have health insurance, you may want to consider your nearest W8MD Medical Weight Loss Center’s Program.

If you do not have a W8MD center near you, talk to your doctor and see if they have an interest in adding a W8MD Insurance Physician Weight Loss Program Franchise at their office with no large startup costs.

The Low-calorie Diet (LCD)

An LCD limits calories, but not as much as a VLCD. A typical LCD may provide1,000–1,200 calories/day for a woman
1,200–1,600 calories/day for a man

The number of calories may be adjusted based on your age, weight, and how active you are.

An LCD usually consists of regular foods, but could also include meal replacements.

What is Modified LCD and Modified VLCD Diet?

At W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers, we offer modified LCD and VLCD diets with 1-2 or your own meals prepared with written detailed instructions from us along with 3-5 of the very low calorie partial meal replacement weigtht loss smoothies, bars, shakes, soups etc.

This VLCD or LCD diet is usually combined with a weight loss prescription medication such as Phentermine, Topiramate (like in the new weight loss drug Qsymia) or other medications when appropriate, along with exercise instructions for optimal weight loss.

How can I lose weight with exercise?

While exercise is important, it alone is not very useful as a tool to lose weight unless it is combined with a calorie restricted diet.

See these articles on why exercise won’t make you thin from Time Magazine. According to Dr. Eric Ravussin, Chair of diabetes and metabolism at Louisiana State University, as reported on this time article, exercise alone is pretty useless as a tool for weight loss. This is because exercise makes you hungrier and also builds heavier muscle thereby compensating for any calories burnt.

This is a well established fact in the field of Obesity Medicine that exercise alone is not enough for weight loss and almost useless as a tool for weight loss.

Even Bally’s fitness acknowledges this and put it 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.

See this piece from Bally’s Fitness on why exercise alone won’t cut it for weight loss

Shoud I consider Medical Weight Loss Or Bariatric Surgery?

Bariatric surgery is an option for some people. If you look at what this surgery does, it is similar to LCD or VLCD in the fact that bariatric surgery is artificially making your stomach small so you are forced to eat an LCD or VLCD diet which you might do on your own.

For most people, a non surgical approach with VLCD or LCD in combination with weight loss medications, and some exercise is the only proven way to go for long term weight loss success although surgery is an option for a minority of patients.

How can W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers insurance weight loss program help?

We can help you achieve long-lasting weight loss without feeling constantly hungry and deprived.

At W8MD Medical Weight Loss Program, we want to help you achieve lasting weight loss results and make changes that will keep you healthy for a lifetime.

Very Low Calorie Diets For Weight Loss

What is a Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Diet?

A VLCD is a special diet that provides up to 800 calories per day. VLCDs use commercial formulas, usually liquid shakes, soups, or bars, which replace all your regular meals. These formulas are not the same as the meal replacements you can find at grocery stores or pharmacies, which are meant to replace one or two meals a day.

w8md-weight-loss-supplementsQuick Weight Loss Almost As Fast As Post Bariatric Surgery With VLCD Diets

This type of diet is used to promote quick weight loss, often as a way to jump-start an obesity treatment program. VLCD formulas are designed to provide all of the nutrients you need while helping you lose weight quickly. In fact, what gastric bypass does is similar to VLCD in the fact that, post bariatric surgery, you will be forced to limit yourself small quantities of food similar to that of the VLCD. Most people would choose a natural, non-surgical method such as the VLCD, to restrict their calories, given a choice of surgery versus the natural VLCD Diets under careful medical supervision.

Medical Nutrition Therapy For Fast Weight Loss

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) programs include using specialized meal replacements and very low calorie diets (VLCD,) also called protein sparing modified fasts (PSMF). These plans reduce calories using meal replacements and simple meals for as long as several months to reduce weight rapidly. We offer a variety of plans to suit your particular tastes and medical nutrition needs.

VLCD and LCD Low Calorie, Low Carbohydrate Balanced and Affordable Meal Replacements

We offer 800 calorie very low calorie diets with or without meal replacement. We also offer 1000-1500 calorie Low Calorie Diets with or without meal replacements along with appropriate medications for fast and safe weight loss under careful medical supervision and your insurance might cover the cost of the visits.

Cheapest and Most Delicious Weight Loss Supplements In Greater Philadelphia, New York City or Other Places

We carry delicious and the most affordable Protein Meal Replacements with protein bars, shakes, smoothies, soups, and other weight loss supplements that can safely be used as liquid meal replacements lose the weight on your own although it is a bit more time consuming and can potentially be frustrating to do the calorie counting.

Potential cost savings on grocery bills 

best weight loss program weight loss program reviews

 

Since our meal replacements cost as little as 2.14 cents a meal replaced, you can potentially save your monthly grocery bill by up to 15 percent as even the grocery ingredients in a home cooked meals might cost a bit more, not counting the time it took to prepare those meals.

Our W8MD Partial or Complete Meal Replacement at 2.14 cents is one of the most affordable and cheaper than Nutrisystem, Medifast or other meal replacement programs and is medically supervised, unlike the “buy it on TV” programs. 

However, these products, medications, and any other tools are all optional. You can just get the dietary instructions from us with meal plans, lessons, and Medical nutrition therapy is nutrition and lifestyle counseling that has a positive effect on disease. MNT is useful for high cholesterol, high triglycerides, blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, digestive diseases and other conditions.

Best Protein Bars, Shakes, Smoothies For Weight Loss

A very low-calorie diet (VLCD) is not just any diet that is low in calories. It is a special type of diet that replaces all of your meals with prepared formulas, often in the form of liquid shakes.  A VLCD may be used for a short time to promote quick weight loss among some people who are considered to be obese. The diet requires close care from your doctor and is usually combined with other ways to lose weight such as weight loss medications or “diet pills” to suppress the appetite, and food cravings. prab-r-tumpati-3

What are the health benefits of a VLCD?
A VLCD may allow you to lose about 3 to 5 pounds per week. This may lead to an average total weight loss of 44 pounds over 12 weeks.
Such a weight loss can rapidly improve medical conditions linked to obesity, including diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Rapid Weight Loss With 800 calorie VLCD Diet 
The rapid weight loss experienced by most people on a VLCD can be very motivating. Patients who participate in a VLCD program that also includes lifestyle changes may lose about 15 to 25 percent of their initial weight during the first 3 to 6 months. They may maintain a 5 percent weight loss after 4 years if they adopt a healthy eating plan and physical activity habits.

Did you know that 90% of all diabetes, 80% of cardiovascular disease, and 60% of all cancers could be prevented through changes in life style and weight loss

CDC obesity in numbers CDC obesity in numbers

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 36% of all adults 20 or over are obese and another 33% are in the overweight category.

And 35% of all adults have prediabetes, also called insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome.

There is good news, however. Studies have shown that even a small amount of weight loss can lead to significant health benefits and reduce the need for many long term medications.

W8md is a physician supervised medical weight loss and wellness program aimed at addressing the complex metabolic, nutritional, hormonal, stress, and sleep related factors under the careful supervision of a weight loss physician for fast and effective weight loss.

What makes our weight loss program different?

Unlike the many cash only weight loss clinics, most w8md medical weight loss centers accept health insurance for the weight loss physician visits so you can lose the weight safely and your insurance might pay for the visits.

Since sleep disorders and weight gain go together, most w8md centers also address any underlying sleep problems including sleep apnea, insomnia, rest less leg syndrome to name a few.

Our medical director, Prab R. Tumpati is a practicing sleep and obesity medicine physician and founder of w8md medical weight loss centers of Ameria.
Having passed a written board examination in the field of obesity medicine in addition to being board certified in sleep medicine and internal medicine, Dr Tumpati has passion to educate and change the behavior and beliefs of people when it comes to losing weight.With no setup fees, no mandatory products, losing weight has never been easier.

Most physicians have nothing to offer their over weight or obese patients other than simply say “lose weight!” or hand out a diet sheet! This is not useful for most patients as obesity needs a more thorough and a structured program with on going support.

Did you know that the 2010 affordable care act mandates insurance coverage for screening and treatment for all adults for obesity?

If you are a physician with an interest in helping your obese or overweight patients, and would like to add w8md program at your office, you are welcome to contact us.
