Beat the bulge
If the number on the scale isn't budging as much as you'd like, there's still some good news. New research shows that even modest weight loss can have a long-term positive effect on your overall health.
Worth the weight (loss)
By losing 20 pounds or 10 percent of a 200-pound person's body weight, overweight and obese individuals can reduce their risk of Type 2 diabetes by as much as 58 percent. It can also benefit sleep apnea, hypertension, quality of life and mobility as people age. Additionally, the health benefits from losing the weight can last up to about 10 years, even if the individual gains the weight back, according to the behavioral study on 3,000 participants who changed their eating habits by tracking everything they ate and keeping unhealthy foods out of the pantry.
Researchers will also examine whether these healthy habits will decrease the risk of heart attacks and heart disease, and ultimately, whether it can prolong your life.
The time to start losing weight is now. It's never too late to become a healthier you. Call WeightLossNYC at 718-491-5525 to schedule your appointment.

Beauty is truly skin deep
The most common goal of following a healthy diet and exercising routinely is to lose weight and help you to get your body looking great. However, most people don’t realize there are so many other countless benefits of following a strict diet and a good workout plan, other than just dropping the pounds. One of the best kept secrets of following a good diet is the huge impact it has on your complexion, which keeps you looking younger.
Cutting back on certain foods can really improve the aging of your skin. The breakdown of sugar, for example, can really damage your collagen, which helps your skin to look smooth and firm. Try cutting back on your daily sugar intake or using substitutes, such as all natural sweetener. Also, hormones that are in certain foods such as dairy products, beef, and even poultry can contribute to acne breakouts. Eating grain-fed beefs and poultry can help make a huge difference in your skins complexion.
The many benefits of dieting and exercising
Exercising correctly is equally as important as doing it routinely, and is also a huge plus for your skin. Doing cardio on machines such as the treadmill can be beneficial in burning calories, but weight training helps to tone muscle and prevent sagging. Also, a yoga class is a much better work out to help relieve stress, as well as losing weight. Cutting down your stress level has a large impact on the aging of your skin, and relieving your tension. High tension levels can cause terrible skin breakouts, so try adding in a few yoga sessions to your weekly work outs.
Low Calorie dieting is a good way to lose weight but you can also make your diet beneficial to your body in other ways. Eating foods that are healthier and higher in vitamins can help improve your skin by making it smoother; capable of healing faster, harder to bruise, and can even improve some chronic skin conditions.
