I have had more success than I have ever seen…

“After trying numerous programs and diets and seeing little success, I was ready to try something that really worked. I began to do some research on weight loss centers and came across Dr. Aron. Though I normally don’t believe what I read, her reviews and her website really caught my eye so I decided to give it a shot and I’m glad I did. With Dr. Aron’s help, I have had more success than I have ever seen, the results have been great thus far and I feel like a new person. Not only is the weight coming off but her program has made me become more aware of what I should and shouldn’t be eating, and what to look for not look for when purchasing food; I’ve become more health-conscious and am passing it along to others in the process. Her practice is great, both her and her staff are a pleasure and are genuinely interested in helping you reach your goals and deal with whatever struggles you may be encountering on your weight loss journey.”

More Obese Americans than Overweight

Americans continue to gain weight

Several striking news reports reflect that in the US, more adults who are obese outnumber those who are just overweight. The LA Times reported notes from published in JAMA Internal Medicine quoting “adults who are obese now outnumber those who are merely overweight.”

[Researchers] estimated that 67.6 million Americans over the age of 25 were obese as of 2012, and an additional 65.2 million were overweight.
  • Washington Post remarks “"[this is] a startling shift from 20 years ago when 63 percent of men and 55 percent of women were overweight or obese and a depressing sign that campaigns to get Americans to eat healthier and exercise more may be failing.”
  • CBS News (website) notes the ”analyzed data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey from 2007 to 2012 to estimate the prevalence of overweight and obesity.” including details on “15,208 men and women age 25 or older.”
  • TIME magazine iterated “40% of men were overweight and 35% of men were obese” — “30% of women were overweight and 37% were obese.” Numbers “are similar to those estimated by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which suggest that one third of American adults are obese.”
  • and MedPage Today remarked “33% of Americans ages 25 to 54, and 28% of those 55 and older, fell into the normal weight category of having a (BMI) of 18.5-24.9.”

The One Easiest Weight Loss Tip Ever

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Aug 11, 2014

Lose weight Easily

Is losing weight your number one goal? Setting a goal is great, but let's break it down into actionable steps so you can start seeing progress right away.

Today’s weight loss tip is so simple, yet most people don’t even consider it when trying to shed pounds. It’s one thing we can’t live without: sleep.

Get More Sleep, Lose Weight

Not getting enough sleep is linked to weight gain and obesity. When you’re tired, you reach for the wrong foods and wind up consuming extra calories. It also makes you hungrier, so you end up eating more than you need:

  • A study published in the Wall Street Journal in 2012 found that inadequate sleep triggered increased levels of ghrelin, the hormone that causes hunger, in men.
  • In women, it can lower their levels of the hormone GLP-1, which suppresses appetite.

Do Something About It

If you haven’t been getting enough shut eye (around 6-8 hours for adults), let’s change that. You’ll not only improve your weight loss success, you’ll also improve your quality of life and even live longer than those who are sleep deprived.

Tip: Be sure to shut off your computers, cell phones and TV at least one hour before bedtime to drift off to sleep easily.

If there’s one simple step to take right now to lose weight, sleeping enough is it. Try it and watch how quickly things will change!

Big Changes, Small Steps

How much does it cost to be Overweight?

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Aug 1, 2014

Obesity Medical Expenses Cost Billions Each Year

Obesity not only takes a toll on your health but your wallet as well, as it costs $147 billion each year in direct medical costs and nearly 10 percent of all medical spending in the U.S.

Roughly one in three Americans are considered obese. An obese person could spend as much as $4,870 per year on health care expenses on Medicare, which is about 41 percent more than a normal weight person spends at $3,400.

Prescription drugs are the majority of medical expenses and can cost an obese person upwards of $1,300 a year, which is 80 percent more than the $700 an average weight person spends.

“…the clear link between rising rates of obesity and increasing medical costs is alarming, but not unexpected,” …the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation said in a statement. “Obesity is the driver of so many chronic conditions — heart disease, diabetes, cancer — that generate the exorbitant costs that are crushing our health-care system,” she said.

“The only way to show real savings in health expenditures in the future is through efforts to reduce the prevalence of obesity and related health conditions,” study author [and] director, RTI Public Health Economics Program, said.

4 Excuses Preventing You from Losing Weight

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jan 27, 2014



What’s your excuse?

Sometimes, the only person standing in the way of your own success is staring straight back at you in the mirror. How many times have you sabotaged your weight loss plans? How many times did you give up too soon?

You’re not the only one. Losing weight is just as tough mentally as it is physically. If you can get your mind in shape first, the rest of your body will follow. Do any of the following excuses sound familiar?

  • I’m too tired

    Did you know that regular exercise could actually boost your energy? Perhaps you need to kick it up a notch—or get started on an exercise regime—in order to feel refreshed and start losing some weight.

  • I don’t have enough time

    We always have more time than we think. How many hours a day do you spend watching silly stuff on YouTube? Reading the paper? Clicking through the channels? Swap those idle times for doing something healthy such as taking or learning to cook healthy food to set your weight loss goals in action.

  • I don’t want to get injured

    If you start off easy and take baby steps, there won’t be any need to worry about injuring yourself from light exercise. Try working out with a friend or family member and go at your own pace. Or, work with a trainer who can customize a workout for you.

  • It’ll be too expensive

    Eating healthier foods will save you money in the long run. Whole foods are cheaper than packaged, processed foods, and they'll keep you healthier, which means your health care costs will be cheaper as well. Special diet foods aren't required.

You don’t need a gym membership

… If you can stay motivated and work out on your own. Walking, jogging, stair climbing, riding bikes and swimming don’t cost you a thing. You can also check out your local community center for low-cost fitness classes.

There are countless excuses that get in the way of losing weight. No matter what yours is, today could be the first day to a healthier life if you first switch to a positive attitude.

Don’t delay another day to improve your lifestyle and lose weight

WeightLossNYC will show you how to lose weight and feel great while you’re at it. Schedule your initial consultation by calling 718-491-5525 or visit our website at WeightLossNYC.com

Start with these 3 Steps to Lose Weight

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Sep 24, 2013


Change your attitude first

At the heart of losing weight is changing your life. It may seem scary at first to change how you've always done things. It may even hurt a little to let go of some of your old ways. But in order to successfully lose weight and make a radical change in your life for the better—you've got to take it one step at a time.

Here are 3 steps to help you start losing weight today:

1. Set a Goal

Let's start off by losing a few pounds at a time to keep it manageable. Keep your eyes on the prize (a healthier you) by focusing on smaller goals. Don't worry too much about the total amount of weight you want to lose. Instead, zero in on a few pounds in a realistic time frame.

2. Take Small Steps

Similar to #1, take things one small step at a time to stay motivated. If you start off with unrealistic expectations, you can easily become frustrated. It's much easier to check off smaller goals.

3. Psych Yourself into it

If your brain's not on board, neither will the rest of your body. Much of your weight loss success starts in your head and not your belly, so fill your mind with positive images of your weight loss success rather than negative ones. Train your brain and losing the weight will follow!

5 Food Swaps for a Slimmer You

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC May 2, 2013

Swap This, Lose That

healthy diet options
Looking for an easy trick to cut calories? Substitute some of your favorite foods with something just as delicious (or even more so) that's less fattening. You'll find yourself satisfied—and slimmer—in no time. These are a just few examples, but don't stop there. Always be on the lookout for other ways to swap something not-so-healthy for something that's great for you.

Bye-bye, Orange Juice ~ Hello, Real Oranges

  • Eating an actual orange has 3 more grams of fiber and half the sugar of a cup of orange juice.

Adios, flour tortilla ~ Hola, corn tortilla

  • Swapping a 10-inch flour tortilla for a 6-inch corn tortilla can save a lot on calories and sodium.

Say No to the Sandwich ~ Say Yes to a Wrap

  • To cut calories, try a 100-calorie multigrain wrap instead of a sandwich with 2 slices of bread.

Ditch the Cinnamon Roll ~ Go for Raisin Bread instead

  • A better alternative for a sweet snack, try some raisin bread with low-fat cream cheese.

Skip Mixed Nuts ~ Opt for Trail Mix

  • Too large a serving of nuts can be fattening, but if you choose trail mix with the right heart-healthy ingredients, you can shave off some calories and fat.

Lose Weight Every Week

Small changes like these can help you lose weight, one pound at a time. Want to make a big change and lose even more? Please give WeightLossNYC™ Medical Weight Loss Center a call at 718-491-5525 for your first appointment.

3 benefits of light exercise that help weight loss

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jan 14, 2013

No more excuses

To see some weight loss results, exercise and healthy eating go hand in hand. If you've never been athletic, there's still hope--because even just a little bit of exercise can do wonders for your health and weight loss goals. Here's how.

Easy does it

You don't need to be a marathon runner. In fact, you're better off jogging and doing moderate exercise if you want to lose weight. The best part? All you need to do is exercise a few times a week to get some traction in your weight loss regime.

Check out these facts:

1.) You may live longer

Specifically, an encouraging 2012 study of 52,656 American adults found that those who ran 1 to 20 miles per week at an average pace of about 10 or 11 minutes per mile ...  lived longer, on average, than sedentary adults. They also lived longer than the group (admittedly small) who ran more than 20 miles per week.

2.) You can lose more weight


  • In one study in Denmark, a group of overweight men lost more weight when they exercised moderately for 30 minutes several times per week compared with men who worked out twice as long. They also ate less than the men who exercised more.


3.) You can have more energy


  • In the same study, those who exercised longer sat around more during the rest of the day than those who exercised moderately. Those who exercised for 30 minutes a day seemed to be more energized. 



  • Moving around, stretching and being more active during the day all add up! Even if you are active for 10 minutes a few times per day, a few days per week, that counts as exercise too--and every little bit helps. 


Just do it


  • The whole point is to not sit around too much being inactive, watching TV or using the computer. Find new ways of doing things (typing while standing, playing with the kids outside more or walking upstairs more often) to burn those extra calories. You'll not only lose the weight, you'll also get to enjoy life more when you improve your lifestyle and extend the number of days you get to live!


Get actionable tips and tricks for weight loss from Dr. Aron of WeightLossNYC. A licensed bariatric specialist, she'll set you straight on what you need to eat and do to lose 10 to 20 pounds of more each month. Call 718-491-5525 for your consultation.
