New weight loss pill


The U.S. Food and Drug Administration just recently approved another prescription medical weight loss drug, Qsymia (previously named Qnexa), which is said to produce significant weight loss.

Qsymia: The facts


In clinical trials, patients experienced a more dramatic weight loss with Qsymia than with Belviq, another weight loss drug that recently got FDA approval. Patients in the trial went from an average of 227 pounds to 204 pounds while on Qsymia. Those on Belviq went from an average of 220 to 207.

Meant for obese or overweight patients with a BMI of 27 or greater who suffer from hypertension and diabetes, Qsymia's benefits include lowered blood pressure and cholesterol levels in obese people and less chance of getting Type 2 diabetes while on the drug. It also contains phentermine, an appetite suppressant.

Possible side effects include an increased heart rate and birth defects when taken by pregnant women. Qsymia is expected to be available soon, while its manufacturer, Vivus, will conduct a study on its cardiovascular effects, as required by the FDA.

What’s High Protein Dieting?

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jul 18, 2012

Fat and Skinny on High Protein Diets

Most people have heard of the term “high protein” diet, but what does it mean and how can it work for you? The goal of a high protein diet is to make sure the majority of calories that you’re eating come from protein packed foods vs. other foods in your daily diet. One of the main benefits of this type of diet is that it often means fewer carbohydrates, which even an amateur dieter will tell you is a big positive for losing those pounds.

So what’s with all the fuss over lowering the carbs in your diet? Well did you know that when carbohydrates are restricted that your body begins burning your own fat for fuel. Simply changing to high protein foods can help to not only curb your appetite a great deal, but it also transforms your body into your own personal fat burning machine.

balanced diet includes protein

Now that you’ve heard a few of the great benefits of eating high protein foods this summer, isn’t it time to start putting them into your daily diet? Here are some suggestions of protein packed foods:

  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Egg whites
  • Soy Products (tofu)
  • Beans

One to One

Dr. Aron’s ideal ratio is one to one calories of proteins to carbs. A more balanced diet is essential for proper nutrition, as opposed to some dieting extremes that attempt to avoid all carbs and overload on meats.

Burn 300 Calories a Day the Easy Way

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jul 12, 2012

Stay active, lose weight
Burn an extra 300 extra calories a day to lose weight? It may sound like a daunting number, but it's easier than you think. Whether you're exercise-averse or simply don't have much time, you can burn calories by doing everyday activities. After 12 days of trying this, you may even lose an extra pound. Here's how to do it.

Everyday activities
Some examples of simple ways to burn extra calories when you're not sleeping or eating include walking, riding a bike as transportation, typing at the computer, and doing housework or yard work. Burning up extra calories via these activities can increase your metabolic rate. Do it every day and it can make a major difference at the scale.

The following are just a few examples of how many calories you can burn by doing everyday activities for 30 minutes (if you weigh 150 pounds):

  • Playing with kids: 136 calories

  • Raking leaves: 147 calories

  • Vacuuming: 119 calories

  • Mowing the lawn: 205 calories

Staying active is important for losing weight and remaining in good health. Walk instead of driving. Go swimming with the kids instead of popping in a DVD. Go on hiking or biking trips as recreation. It can involve regular cardiovascular exercise, but it can also include getting up and moving around as much as possible throughout the day. It's really as simple as that. Give it a try for a few weeks and see some results.

Eat Smaller and Lose Weight

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC
The more the merrier

New research from Arizona State University proclaims that eating several small pieces of food is more satisfying than larger portions. It can also help you lose weight. The key here is cutting up and eating several small pieces of healthy food. If you couple this with eating smaller portions in your overall diet, you will be on your way to losing weight in no time -- all while enjoying your food just a little more.

"Cutting up energy-dense meal foods into smaller pieces may be beneficial to dieters who wish to make their meal more satiating while also maintaining portion control," says Devina Wadhera, the study's lead author and a graduate student in ASU's department of psychology, in a news release.


Here's why

Eating small pieces of food takes longer, which gives your stomach more time to register that it's filling up. By giving your hunger hormones time to catch up with your eating, you end up eating until you're satisfied and you also eat less food overall.

How to do it

Put your fork or spoon down and take a short break in between bites so you stay in tune with how full you are without eating too much. Be sure to drink water with every meal to stay full and avoid overeating. Take your time to savor every bite!

Tips to Lose Weight for your Wedding Day

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC

Nothing motivates a woman more to lose weight than when she receives an engagement ring!

wedding weight loss Every girl dreams about her wedding day from a young age, so it’s no wonder they go to great lengths to look their best on this special day. The problem with this is that most brides resort to quick and extreme fixes that only help to keep the weight off temporarily. Why waste your time and money on losing this weight for only a few weeks when you can invest in a life changing weight loss solution to go hand in hand with your marriage. Here are a few weight loss tips that will help you look and feel your best on your wedding day, as well as each and every day after!
  1. Track your food: Even the smallest foods count! Did you know that cup of sunflower seeds can have up to 800 calories? Make sure to keep track of each bite and make them count.
  2. Make fitness part of your day: It can become very easy to make excuses not to work out, especially after a long stressful day. Instead of using those reasons to not work out, make them your motivation to hit the gym and release that stress! Working out should be a priority everyday not an option.
  3. Limit your alcohol: Most alcohol beverages are loaded with calories, but even when they aren’t they still take a big chunk of motivation out of your system by lowering your inhibitions. Steer clear of consuming alcohol or try choosing diet friendly drinks.
  4. Get your rest: Not getting enough sleep can lead to cravings, which usually lead to poor diet choices. Getting adequate sleep can also help lower your stress level which has a huge impact on dropping those pounds! Make sure to catch your ZZZ’s every night.
  5. Life Happens! : Don’t let one slip up or “bad” day break your spirits. Give yourself credit for all the good choices you’ve been making lately and stopping focusing on the bad ones.
  6. Drink water: Drinking water throughout the entire day can help to keep you feeling full, not to mention there are no calories to worry about! So go ahead and drink up, we insist.
  7. Eat slower: The brain can take up to 20 minutes to send the NOT HUNGRY signal to your stomach. Try to slow down and enjoy your meals, you may be surprised at how little you actually need to eat to be “full.”
  8. Keep your eye on the prize: Remember why you started the diet and use that as motivation for yourself. Sometimes writing down your reasons can go a long way.

7 Easy Healthy Eating Tips to Slim Down

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jul 6, 2012
Delicious dieting
By eating healthy, fresh foods you can get a great variety of flavor and lose weight at the same time. Here, we share a few tips on how to incorporate healthy foods in your diet and tell you what you can cut out for faster weight loss. It's not as complicated as you think, so read on.

1.) Eat your veggies
Filling your plate with a lot of fresh vegetables can help you lose weight. They can also keep you satisfied with their high water and fiber content.

Tip: Fill your plate with three different veggies so you not only get those nutrients in your diet, but also take in less calories. Also: season them with spices, lemon juice or olive oil and skip the salad dressing for a low-fat alternative.

2.) Soup it up
Including a healthy soup in your daily diet can keep you from eating too many calories. The key is to find a healthy soup that's broth-based, not creamy, and is low in sodium (many popular brands are very high in sodium, so look out).

Tip: Choose a low-calorie, low-sodium soup with a high vegetable content. Other healthy ingredients may include lentils and beans for extra fiber and protein.

3.) Tall drinks
Of course, it helps to only drink water, but whenever drinking a beverage, opt for a tall, skinny glass instead of a short, wide one. The reason? Studies show the tall glass provides a visual cue for you to drink as much as 25 to 35 percent less.

4.) Fresh breath
Looking for a simple way to keep snack attacks away? Chewing sugarless mint gum with a strong flavor has shown to be effective at preventing mindless snacking.

5.) A better pizza slice
When you eat or make your own pizza, you can make it healthier with the right toppings and ingredients.

Tip: Try low-fat or skim cheese, thin whole wheat crust and all-veggie toppings to lower the calories.

6.) Phase out soda
By replacing one soda a day with water instead, you can save yourself an extra 450 calories a day. One study showed that participants who drank soda regularly gained 2.5 pounds in a four-week period. By cutting out the unnecessary sugar, your teeth and waistline will thank you.

7.) Say no to bacon
Cutting out two slices of bacon can save you at least 100 calories a day, which can total a loss of up to 10 pounds in one year.

Tip: Instead, substitute other proteins such as tofu or eggs. Healthier bacon substitutions can include a turkey version (just make sure it is low in fat).
