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.

Weight Loss Pills: What Works?

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Nov 11, 2015
Before/After Weight Loss Woman

What weight loss supplements are safe?

You want to lose weight—and fast. You’re willing to try almost any weight loss product promising a miracle, but will it work? And more importantly, is it safe?

FTC cracks down on false weight loss claims

Looks like the Federal Trade Commission is cracking down on companies hawking weight loss products with bogus claims and here’s what’s happening right now.

Products that the FTC says are making false claims include Sensa and a “slimming” body cream by L’Occitane. The FTC is also working to get consumers their money back for purchasing such products and is going to urge the companies to stop the false advertising.

Some common false claims:

  • Eat whatever you want and still lose weight
  • No diet or exercise required
  • Just take this pill and you’ll lose weight

Where’s the miracle?

“The chances of being successful at substantial weight loss just by sprinkling something on your food, rubbing creams on your body or just using a supplement, well, they’re slim to none” — Jessica Rich, Director of the FTC Bureau of Consumer Protection

There are no miracle weight loss pills, no matter what those companies try to get you to believe. Buying these supplements from unscrupulous sources online without a doctor’s supervision is dangerous. Not only do they not work—they could cause you serious harm or even death.

The only legal (and legitimate) weight loss medications are those approved by the FDA, and are only available by prescription. These include Phentermine, Phendimetrizine, Qsymia, Belviq … See complete list: FDA Approved Medical Weight Loss Pills

Your best option is to work with a medical weight loss doctor who can advise you safely on what your body needs in order to lose weight.

Are you Overweight? Do you want to lose weight?

Need an exercise shortcut? Try a 7-minute workout

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jun 17, 2013

A new you in 7 minutes?


Lose the Wait. Lose the Weight.

What's your excuse for not working out? Whatever the reason, you're not alone. Busy schedules, and juggling work and family life typically leave the average American adult with little time or energy to hit the gym, but there is a solution for you.

Whether you're trying to drop some pounds or stay in shape, you need regular exercise. But when you're short on time, what do you do? You get creative. That's why this 7-minute workout routine is perfect for someone like you who has the desire but not the time. Check it out.

Get the most out of your short workout


Turns out just 7 minutes of high-intensity interval training can make a difference. By doing just 8 to 12 repetitions of resistance training for each muscle group at 40% to 80% intensity for two or three non-consecutive days a week, busy people can still put in a good workout that promotes weight loss, according to the American College of Sports Medicine. Two to four sets of each muscle group with two to three minutes rest in between each exercise are recommended.


Try exercises such as side planks, abdominal crunches, squats, lunges, push-ups and jumping jacks for 30 seconds each with a 10-second rest period in between. Do them for a total of 7 minutes and you're on your way to a fitter, healthier body.

Now there are no excuses! This is not only a great alternative to 30 or 60 minutes or longer of exercise, but you've got an effective way to lose body weight and fat.

Lose Weight Fast

You can lose as many as 10 to 20 pounds each month--or more! Schedule your first consultation with Dr. Aron today so you can learn how. Call us today at 718-491-5525.

Fast Facts on Fish Oil

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Apr 21, 2013

Know your Omega-3s and 6s

omega fish oil supplements
Have you discovered the fat-melting qualities of fish oil yet in your quest to lose weight? If not, don't just give it a try — make it a mainstay in your diet.

Also known as Omega fatty acids, fish oil can help your health in many different ways and should be an important cornerstone of your everyday diet. Read on for more information on how you can benefit from fish oil.

Burn fat faster

You need fat in order to lose weight — the good, healthy kind. This includes Omega-3 and Omega-6. We need these fats to promote our health and facilitate weight loss, but most Americans do not get enough.

Sometimes a supplement is necessary to make sure you're getting a balance of these healthy fats. Results from a daily dose of Omega-3 can be seen in anywhere from a few days to several weeks, but it's no quick fix. It's important to take it every day on a long-term basis for the best results and overall health.

Health benefits

Fish oil can improve so many aspects of your health, there are almost too many to count. Some of these include your heart, vision, joints, immune system, digestive system, pancreas, blood pressure, cholesterol, hormones, mood, energy and more.

Additional benefits of omega supplements:

  • Moderate amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids in your diet have shown to reduce your risk of a first heart attack by 30%.
  • Symptoms in such inflammatory diseases as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's disease are also decreased.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids also prevent artery-hardening and heart disease-causing plaques

6 Simple Weight Loss Secrets Revealed

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Mar 18, 2013

healthy protein breakfast

Start losing weight today

Looking to lose weight the fast and easy way? Well, aren’t we all… In addition to a healthy diet and exercise plan, try these weight losstips and tricks to shed some pounds and stay on track with your weight loss goals. Better yet, these helpful hints require almost no effort at all.

  1. Rest up.

    Did you know? People who only get 5 hours of sleep can gain as many as 2 lbs. in 5 days. They also consume 6% more calories, according to a new study from the University of Colorado, Boulder. So be sure to catch some Z’s in addition to eating right throughout the day.

  2. Start with a hearty breakfast.

    Curb those carbs in the morning and opt for a healthy egg-and-veggie scramble or omelette instead. Eating eggs in the morning instead of a bagel equals 264 less calories consumed the rest of the day, says a Saint Louis University study. Its protein can also help you stay fuller.

  3. Don’t hold off on eating lunch.

    Some people let their hectic schedule dictate when they eat lunch, but that can affect your weight loss goals. Eating lunch late (after 3 p.m.) can cause you to lose less weight and have a lower insulin sensitivity. Even when eating healthfully, waiting too long to eat can undermine your diet’s effectiveness.

  4. Think small.

    People eat 35% less when eating from a small, individual plate rather than serving themselves from a large platter in the middle of the table.

  5. Remember what you ate.

    Thinking back on what you ate for your last meal and how satisfied you were can help you consume 30% less calories at snack time.

  6. Ditch TV watching while eating.

    People who eat while watching TV consume 288 more calories per meal on average compared to those who don’t. This is an easy, no-brainer way to eat less.

Want to lose 10 to 20 lbs. in a month, possibly more?

Dr. Aron is here to help: Get your own structured medical diet plan that will get you in shape for spring. Call 718-491-5525 today for your first appointment.

What is a Bariatrician?

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jan 19, 2013

What is a Weight Loss Doctor? (Obesity Medicine Physician)

Obesity Medical Assocation
“A bariatrician is a licensed physician who has received special training in obesity medicine—the medical treatment of obesity and its associated conditions. Bariatricians address the obese patient with a comprehensive program of proper diet and nutrition, appropriate exercise, lifestyle changes and, when indicated, the use of prescription anti-obesity medications and other appropriate medications.”

Medical Diet Programs

Bariatric (Weight Loss) Doctors have received an extensive continuing medical education program consisting of specialized knowledge, tools and techniques to enable them to design and modify specialized obesity treatment programs adapted to the various needs of individual patients.
  • Dietary Modification
  • Exercise Prescription
  • Behavior Modification
  • Medication (when appropriate)

Assess Total Health and Obesity Conditions

A key distinction of physician-supervised medical weight loss is the addressing of overall health, since weight gain may be allied with conditions such as type 2 diabetes and hypertension and other maladies. A bariatric physician is trained to diagnose and manage obesity-related conditions, which otherwise could remain undetected and untreated by a non-medical weight-loss program.

Lose Weight Fast

Dr.  is an internal physician and bariatrician in Brooklyn, New York. Her WeightLossNYC (+Dr Aron Medical Weight Loss Center) practice treats obese and overweight patients in the greater New York area.

HCG for Treating Obesity: The Facts | Weight Loss NYC

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Nov 26, 2012

Is HCG a miracle cure?

HCG injection
Safety and efficacy of HCG for weight loss vs other medical weight loss treatments available with prescription or bariatric physician supervision.
You’ve heard of doctors treating obese patients with Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) for weight loss because it's been touted as a rapid weight loss medication, but does it work the way it's supposed to? If you're looking for a quick fix in losing weight with HCG injections, you’ll want to read on for more information.

Does HCG cause weight loss?

First used in a 1954 study of patients who were injected with HCG in conjunction with a 500-calorie-a-day diet, it was believed to produce rapid weight and fat loss, reduce hunger, and result in no weakness. Once popular in the 1970s, later challenges to the study, however, found that HCG was ineffectual in weight loss and that the weight loss during the study was likely due to the restricted-calorie diet alone.

Is HCG Safe and Effective for Weight Loss?

Today, HCG is available in tablet form or by injection, and is surging in popularity again, but scientific evidence doesn't support the claim that HCG can alter fat distribution or reduce hunger. Not only that, but HCG and the lower intake of protein in the diet that accompanies HCG for weight loss are not considered safe and are not recommended, according to the American Society of Bariatric Physicians.

The Difference Losing 20 Pounds Makes

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Aug 10, 2012
weight loss scale 
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.

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.

If You're Trying to Lose Weight, Don't Do These!

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Dec 14, 2011
It's easy to get obsessive when you're in weight-loss mode. As tempting as it is, don't! Here are a few things to definitely avoid, so you can relax and take your weight loss regime at a reasonable--and healthy--pace.

Starving yourself (or skipping meals)
You may think this is a faster way to weight loss, but it actually has the opposite effect in the long run. Not eating, skipping meals and diets far too low in calories wind up decreasing your metabolism and increasing your percentage of body fat.

Scammy weight loss pills
These products found over the counter at drug stores and online promising rapid weight loss are not only unsafe and unregulated by the FDA, they don't even work. They can also cause problems. Diet pills are often loaded with caffeine and diuretics, which can dehydrate you and throw your electrolytes off balance.


Extreme exercise
Going to the extreme when exercising to lose weight can do you more harm than good. It can also lead to injuries, dehydration, electrolyte imbalance and turning physical exercise into a punishment for your eating habits. Instead, get a moderate amount of exercise for weight loss--at least 30 minutes a day for 5 days a week. In time, moderate exercise coupled with a healthy diet will get you on track to lose weight--and keep it off--as long as you keep it up.

You don't need to go to extreme measures to lose weight. Work one-on-one with Dr. Aron to change your lifestyle for the better, and lose weight safely. Call today!

How often do you eat when not hungry?

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jul 11, 2011

Are You Eating to Satisfy Non-Hunger Needs?

Dr. Aron admonishes snacking, favoring proper nutritional meals as the signpost to health and happy weight loss. Her prescription for traditional meals favors real table time with place settings and people.
“Building and keeping a structure to your meals maintains a signal to yourself to relax and eat normally, rather than snatch and grab snacking when under duress. [Furthermore] providing a healthy outlet for socialization helps you manage daily stress and foster stronger relationship and communication bonds.”
Dr. Aron, Weight Loss Expert

Honest Food Needs and Fumbles

Many of the reasons people eat do not relate to true physical hunger. Being aware of physical and emotional needs and eating triggers is a step towards addressing them constructively. Dr. Aron can provide support in learning to address physical and emotional needs in non-food ways.

lose weight for your wedding

Address Your Physical Needs

  • Tend to your health needs. Discuss with Dr. Aron if you have a pain or problem. Follow your treatment plan. Take your medication(s).
  • Drink 6-8 glasses of water per day. You may need more on hot days, after exercise or eating salty foods, or based on medications you may be taking. Often people confuse hunger with thirst.
  • Get enough sleep. It has been documented that lack of sleep makes some people eat more.
  • Move your body. Human bodies are designed to move. After years of cutting back on requirements for physical exercise, the current recommendation is to exercise for a minimum of 30 minutes/day.
  • Make exercise fun. If exercise isn't your thing, combine it with meeting other needs such as:
    • Socialization. Bike or walk with a friend. Take a class with a partner. Join a softball league. Learn a new dance.
    • Spiritual. Yoga or walking at the beach can feel spiritually satisfying.
    • Fresh air. Take a 20-30 minute walk—even in winter. Choose a sunny or less cold day, bundle up and walk. It clears your head, leaving you energized.
    • Care-taking. Take your children on a hike. Walk or run with your dog.
    • Personal Growth. Try a new sport. Take swimming or tennis lessons.

Satisfy Your Emotional Needs

healthy eating habits
Listen to your inner voice and work on giving yourself what you need. Everyone needs the following to varying degrees:
  • Companionship/socialization. Spend time with people you love and enjoy; connect with them often. Eliminate (or minimize if that's not possible) contact with people you feel bad or stressed around.
  • Time to be alone. This may include sitting in silence for ten minutes per day.
  • Spend time doing what you love. If you can't do this every day, make some time every week.
  • Find constructive ways of dealing with interpersonal conflict. Take a class or read a book on what ails you. See a therapist or other healer if you need support.
  • Identify your stresses and find coping mechanisms. Try new ways of coping if you still feel overwhelmed.
  • Pay attention to and work on eliminating negative thought patterns. Re-program negative thoughts such as
    "I'm never as good as X"
    into
    "I'm learning _____."

Healthy Lifestyle is Your Choice

Healthy eating is a lifestyle choice. A physically and emotionally tuned in you will create more positive outlets and feel less need to overeat.

Start Losing Weight Today

You can lose 10-20 lbs per month safely and easily under Dr. Aron's care and supervision. Her medical weight loss plan is fast and effective, and backed by FDA clinical approval.

Overweight Ain’t So Great

A recent study found that healthy, nonsmoking white adults whose body mass index (BMI) indicated they were overweight had a 13% greater risk of death than those with a normal BMI. Obese subjects faced an increased risk ranging from 44% to 88%.

Visit WeightLossNYC.com to check your BMI

Body Mass Index (BMI)

BMI is one measure of height and weight used to determine overweight or obesity. Overweight begins at a BMI measurement of 25, obese at 30 and morbid obesity at 40.

Obesity & Mortality

Two-thirds of U.S. adults are either overweight or obese. A 5-foot 6-inch person is considered overweight at 155 pounds, obese at 186 pounds and morbidly obese at 248 pounds.

The study’s conclusions, published in late 2010 in the New England Journal of Medicine, are similar to those of three other large studies. The body of evidence supporting the finding that being even slightly overweight is associated with an increased risk of death is continuing to grow. It debunks the notion that a “few extra pounds” might actually be good for one’s health.

Even being a little overweight increases the risk of early death

The government–funded study analyzed 19 long term studies using each person’s BMI and checked to see who died during a five to 28 year follow up period. The researchers focused on people who were healthy at the study’s start, who were nonsmokers and did not have heart disease or cancer. The results were similar for women and men. Evidence suggests that for the same BMI level, African-Americans may have a lower risk of death and Asians a higher risk. Further research is needed to confirm this.

Losing Weight is a Step Toward a Healthier Lifestyle

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Dec 20, 2010

Fast, Healthy Weight Loss

healthy dietFeature Article by Dr Aron, WeightLossNYC Medical Weight Loss Center

With the spotlight on childhood obesity, many families and schools are trying to address overweight and obesity as school begins. I have heard lots of chatter about what people are planning to do, and I want to share some pointers from recent research and clinical experience.
  1. Assess what you eat and drink.

    A simple way to do this is to write down everything that you eat or drink for a few days. Look at the list and attack the sources of empty calories. The likely offenders are sweet tea, sugared soda, bread, french fries and chips. Dietitians and weight loss programs also recommend writing down what you eat because it makes you think twice before eating.
  2. Eliminate junk food.

    Eliminating junk food may be all that you need to do if you are drinking regular soda, and are eating “nabs” and potato chips. I often hear, “But I don’t eat much of it.” However, the unwelcome truth is that just a little sugar and starch can turn off your body’s ability to lose weight. Some people, I fear, are very sensitive to sugar, and need to get it out of their lives completely.
  3. Follow a program.

    Lifestyle programs use many different approaches. It is okay to count calories, fat grams or carbohydrate grams to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Other preferences may lead you toward vegetarian or meat-based approaches. Internet support groups, diet books, packaged food programs and work-site groups can all help. (I don’t know of any legitimate lifestyle program that promotes eating “junk food.”)
  4. Seek help if you take medication, or if you can’t do it on your own.

    Some patients tell me that changing what they eat is difficult, even “the hardest thing that that they’ve ever done.” Under medical supervision, medications and “prescription-strength” diets may be necessary to overcome hunger. If you have medical problems like diabetes or high blood pressure, these conditions need to be monitored if you are making a major change in your diet.
  5. Have your health measurements checked periodically.

    While there are many recommendations for “healthy eating,” you cannot know what foods are best for you unless you have certain tests checked by your doctor. I see people who are frustrated because even though they are doing everything that they have been told for general healthiness, they look and feel unhealthy. In many instances, the “general recommendations” are not appropriate for individual people.
I have seen “lifestyle therapy” improve or eliminate type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, sleep apnea, asthma and many other health problems that are so common today. Losing weight is just one step toward a healthier lifestyle.
