She lost 60 lbs before her 60th birthday

She’s lost 60 lbs before her 60th birthday — and heading for 20 more

Her kids now in college, she looked at what she wanted to be in this next stage of her life; With most of her 83 pound weight loss goal achieved she joyfully reflects on her healthy regimen with just 20 more pounds to go before her 60th birthday.

Prep School

She’s worked out a solid routine of three healthy meals a day without any mid-meal snacks. Obviously the early weeks were the most daunting, laying down the foundation for what has become her success story 8 months later.

Managing the daily challenges of real life setup some more obstacles in her path: managing the social obligations and even day to day cravings. She worked out some new strategies along the way to making better life habits and healthy choices.

Healthy Meal choices

Some of her magic spells include mashed cauliflower, and wine-free spritzers en verre

Congratulations!

Weight Loss #attitude yields Weight Loss #Success

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Dec 5, 2016

She lost 45 pounds and is on track to keep losing more

weight loss joggerWeight Loss Success

Keeping an eye on the target, she has been on her mark to reach her goal weight, having lost 45 pounds in 5 months and steadily moving ahead to the next level in her weight loss program. Motivation truly comes from within, make a mark inside yourself that you can do this and work hard to do it. It is ok to have your doubts — being realistic is important to maintaining proper perspective.

Conversely being too idealistic works against you — it is ok to dream but if you are pessimistic it works against your motivating force.

The Power of Attitude

Another rah for positive thinking: Having the right attitude can really affect you reaching your weight loss goals. A year-long study of obese patients evaluated their expectations and fantasy regarding their weight loss program. The study found these two aspects to affect success in opposite ways:

“… expectation and fantasy [differ … predicting] weight change in opposite directions. Optimistic expectations but negative fantasies favored weight loss. Subjects who displayed pessimistic expectations combined with positive fantasies had the poorest treatment outcome. Finally, expectation but not fantasy predicted program attendance.

How to Lose Weight Fast

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!

“Are you ready to start making some real changes? What's holding you back from living the life you want to live? Let's work together for a healthier you” — Oksana Aron, MD

Yo-Yo Dieting Weight-Gain Myth, Busted!

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Nov 10, 2012
The Latest on Yo-Yo Dieting

You gain weight, you lose some and then you gain some more.

Then you start to wonder if you'll ever get back to your old weight, worried that you've messed up that chance completely.

This phenomenon is called yo-yo dieting or weight cycling. No matter what you call it, it's a vicious and frustrating cycle for 40 percent of men and women in the Western world who are trying to lose weight or stay trim.

But a new study shows that yo-yo dieting will not affect your overall weight loss goals and does not negatively impact your metabolism.


Although severe yo-yo dieters were, on average, almost 20 pounds heavier than the women who were not yo-yo dieters when the study began, at the end of the study the researchers found no significant differences between those who had a history of yo-yo dieting and those who did not.

The weight cycling did not affect the women's ability to successfully participate in diet or exercise programs, the study authors reported. Yo-yo dieting also did not affect the percentage of body fat and lean muscle mass gained or lost among the women, they noted.



If you've struggled with your weight for years, don't give up! You still have a chance at achieving your weight loss and health goals. The latest research proves that it's never too late to get started on a healthier lifestyle by making healthy diet and exercise choices so you can have the body--and life--you've always dreamed of.

Are you not making the kind of weight-loss progress you would like? Don't struggle with it on your own. Call WeightLossNYC at 718-491-5525 to schedule your consultation with Dr. Aron, who will keep you on track and motivated to lose up to 20 lbs. a month.

Men: Better Body, Better Sex Life

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Oct 22, 2012

Bigger isn’t always better

erectile dysfunction and obesity

The link between erectile dysfunction and weight

It’s a topic no man wants to talk about, but listen up, guys. Men may have a new “cure” for erectile dysfunction (ED) that can also improve other areas of your life: losing weight.

According to an Italian study, researchers found that overweight men experienced an improvement of their ED after going on a healthy eating and exercise plan.

The study involved 110 obese men between the ages of 35 and 55 who suffered from ED and were put on a plan to eat healthy and exercise in order to lose 10 percent or more of their body weight.

In two years’ time, one third of the men had lost 33 pounds on average. Additionally, they were found to be more physically active in general.

ED may be a highly sensitive issue, but this study shows that men have options other than going on medication. By pursuing a healthy, active lifestyle and eating right, men can enjoy a healthier sex life and improved self image. Make the commitment to exercise and diet to lose weight--and improving this condition is just another benefit and motivator for healthy living.

By making your first appointment with WeightLossNYC® today, you’ll be on your way to an improved lifestyle and an improved YOU! Your first step is to call us at 718-491-5525.

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.

5 Unusual Weight Loss Tips

Slim down tips and tricks

Have you exhausted just about every diet plan or silly weight loss tip? Are you ready to learn about how to lose weight in a super-easy manner? Well, here are a few tips and mind tricks you can use that actually work. Read on and try them out.

1. Try Yoga

Women who do yoga typically weigh less than those who do not, according to the Journal of the American Dietetic Association. They’re also more likely to be mindful when they eat, which helps prevent overeating.

2. Eat Home-Cooked Meals

Those who eat at home at least 5 times a week instead of dining out are more likely to be successful at losing weight, says Consumer Reports.

3. Take Breaks when eating

Most people take a break and put down their eating utensils at a certain point while they eat, called an eating pause. When this happens, don’t take another bite for a while until you actually feel hungry. This may help you realize you’re already satisfied but not quite stuffed.

4. Time It

Set a timer for 20 minutes while you eat to promote slow eating and savor each bite. Pay close to attention to every sensation while you eat, which results in your body triggering satisfaction hormones. When you eat quickly, your body doesn’t trigger the hormones, which can ultimately lead to overeating.

5. Keep your eye on the prize

Motivating yourself to lose weight every chance you get also helps. So hang up that sexy pair of jeans or little black dress that’s a little too snug for you right now so you can see it every day — and be motivated to keep at your weight loss goal.

Slim down and keep the weight off

… with a one on one consultation with Dr Oksana Aron. Her medical weight loss plan is designed to help you lose weight fast, and is backed by medical research. Call WeightLossNYC today at 718-491-5525 and get started.

When Obesity Is in Your Genes

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Nov 8, 2011
A new study from the Medical Research Council Epidemiology Unit in Cambridge, UK, which was published in PLoS Medicine, has great news for those who may have obesity in their genes: being physically active can actually reduce your predisposition.

According to the study, the risk of becoming obese if you have the "fat mass and obesity associated" (FTO) gene becomes nearly 30 percent less likely to happen for physically active adults compared to those who aren't.

"Physical activity is an effective way of controlling body weight, particularly in individuals with a genetic predisposition towards obesity. Thus, they contrast with the determinist view held by many that genetic influences are unmodifiable," Dr. Ruth Loos, who led the study, told Medical Daily.

So even if obesity runs in your family, your genes can't hold you back from a healthy body. Your ideal weight is now in your own hands, and there are no excuses either. Make an appointment today for your free weight loss consultation with Dr. Aron.

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.

Fast Weight Loss the Low Fat Way

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Oct 7, 2010

Fast Weight Diet Program


Trimming the fat in one's diet can be a great way to lose weight,and for those with high LDL cholesterol, it can pack a double punch by lowering cholesterol as well. Sometimes one change yields a huge difference. One patient just cut the weekly block of cheddar cheese out of her diet. After two weeks, she was surprised and thrilled to find that her pants were looser.

In most cases, particularly when high cholesterol is an issue, bodily changes may take longer. The steps below provide guidelines of where to look for unnecessary fat within your diet. Many programs suggest making changes gradually so that they can become part of your lifestyle and not leave you feeling deprived and prone to binge-ing on "forbidden foods." Our fast weight loss program encourages you to take more serious steps forward.
Dr. Aron, Weight Loss NYC

Here are some of Dr. Aron’s low fat diet tips:

watermelon and fresh fruit
  • Don't Be Chicken

    Stick with naturally lowfat chicken, turkey and fish. Limit red meat consumption to once a week or less. Trim all visible fat from meat. Remove the skin from poultry. Look up fat content in fish. While the fat in fish can be heart healthy omega 3s, if weight loss is the goal, choosing lower fat options can speed progress.
  • No Day is Fry Day

    Baking, grilling, broiling and roasting meat/poultry/fish serve up less fat than pan or deep frying. Note that sauté means "fry" in French so don’t be fooled that sautéed foods are healthier than fried dishes when reading recipes and menus.
  • Butter or Not

    Cut back on butter. Lowfat or fat free cream cheese is an option as are some of the butter alternatives on the market. Read the labels to make sure margarine is free of partially hydrogenated oils (transfats). When cooking, use cooking spray on pan surfaces. Sprays come in olive oil, butter and other varieties so you can choose what works best for dinner dishes, baking or the morning omelette.
  • Moo-ve on over

    Switch to low or nonfat dairy products. Lower fat versions of mozzarella, cottage, feta or ricotta cheeses hardly taste different from their full fat cousins, if at all. For dessert, nonfat frozen yogurt, sherbet , sorbet or soft-serve ice cream are generally lower in fat than hard ice cream. Be sure to check nutritional labels though because some brands do have high fat content despite their "frozen yogurt" or "sorbet" label. Experiment with various low fat dairy products to see which suit your taste. Some brands of the same product taste and/or work better in recipes than others.
  • Read the Labels

    Read nutritional labels and steer away from foods containing partially hydrogenated oil, palm oil, coconut oil or lard. These are notoriously high in bad cholesterol. Beware of store bought baked goods which often contain these ingredients. Look for low fat alternatives or bake your own using small amounts of unsaturated oils and fats (e.g., vegetable oil, lowfat yogurt).
  • Be Fruitful

    The healthiest lowfat or nonfat dessert is fruit. Try new fruits in season. Combine them with Cool Whip topping and angel food cake (which are also lowfat) for special occasions. Other lowfat desserts to satisfy a sweet tooth include sugar free jellos and puddings, flavored lowfat/nonfat yogurts and frozen fruit bars (that don't contain cream). If overall healthy eating is a goal, steer clear of products containing artificial sweeteners.
  • Salad Days

    Use salad dressings, homemade or store-bought, that contain olive oil or other unsaturated oils. Mix together with vinegar, lemon juice and/or mustard and fresh or dried herbs to taste. If the dressing has fat of any type, use it sparingly. Many a healthy vegetable salad has turned into a high fat sabotage due to liberal use of dressing.
  • Dining Room

    Restaurant eating can pose special challenges since diners are not aware of all ingredients used. Some basic guidelines: order meat/fish/poultry that is grilled, roasted or baked. If choosing broiled meat, ask them to broil without oil. Request sauce and dressings on the side so that the amount consumed can be limited. Skip the butter on the bread. Ask for lowfat milk instead of cream for coffee. Stay away from soups unless the fat content is known; many restaurant soups contain high amounts of oil or cream.
