Our program addresses the fundamentals you need to break through the struggles of your past. Read a recent patient testimonial:

Commit Yourself to Change

“I have to offer my recommendation of Dr. Aron to anyone who wants to lose weight. I recommend Dr. Aron wholeheartedly. She has a professional staff from the front desk to the technician to lab work if needed and finally her professional advice and plan. She has a uncanny ability to empower the patient. I tried many places and have had many excuses and failures before but like in life and others things we need to look within our own ability to commit to a lifestyle and behavior habit that we can work on one step at a time and be able to use for the rest of our lives. If you want someone to hold your hand I suggest a pet but if you are serious about at least trying to commit yourself to change the way you look, then this doctor is genuine and very very organized and professional. I’ve come back to her now 3 times and thats for a reason. She is the pilot and I trust the direction she is guiding me toward but I must stay focused and disciplined, and then and only then I will succeed. It’s no magic pill its your mind set … If appetite suppressant can help you along the way she will guide you for the short term with them Strongly recommend to anyone who is ready to not point blame to a doctor or themselves but to just move on and lose weight cause doing so will save your LIFE! This place is AWESOME!”

Who Are Your (Super) Heroes?

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

Weight Loss Heroes

weight loss hero

Who are Your Heroes?

“Who are the heroes in your world -- the people who've got your back no matter what?”

Perhaps the hardest part of staying on your is having everyone around you be on your team.

One patient recently intimated, overtime staff hours were plenished with a tray of junk food to boost morale and sagging energy levels -- the exact opposite of what she needed to keep strong in her weight loss resolve.

Getting your friends and family behind you is one thing, getting the rest of the world on your side is another.

  • Let coworkers know your intentions: "Don't give me that donut. Don't even ask me…"
  • Bring your own life saver to office functions -- pack a safety healthy snack to keep you away from temptation at office party trays.
  • Don't go anywhere you don't need to be. After hours pub time is great social fun, but even one drink is gonna bust your diet ego. If you can't keep it to water and lemon, say, then suggest other plans or make sure you'll be with people who won't press you to consume disaster calories.

Make Diet Changes to Lose Extra Weight

Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Jan 7, 2012

Gallup’s annual Health and Healthcare survey shows that 52% of all U.S. adults who say they have succeeded at losing weight at some point in their lives said it was due to dietary changes more so than exercise.

How did they do it? Respondents who did lose weight said they altered their diet in the following ways:

1.) eat less
2.) count calories and watch portions
3.) eating more natural foods

The general nature of Americans’ responses -- eating less and working out -- shows that most people find weight-loss success by maintaining good overall health habits, not by relying on quick fixes -- 1% said they had gastric bypass and 4% said they used diet pills/drugs.


Other facts from the study showed that Americans in general still need to improve their diet and get more exercise to combat the high rates of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

The good news: Even modest weight loss (5% or 10% of total body weight) can improve a person's blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

    Emotional Eating and Weight Gain

    Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Dec 23, 2011


    The days are getting shorter and the holidays will soon be far behind us. During the winter months, many people turn to food for comfort and wind up gaining weight. Are you an emotional eater? Find the reasons behind emotional eating and learn how to avoid the weight gain that comes with it.

    What is emotional eating?
    Eating impulsively when in emotional distress

    Why we emotional eat
    To deal with and distract yourself from negative emotions such as fear, stress, anger, sadness and loneliness

    What it does

    It can cause you to gain weight because you may eat too fast when emotional or you eat too much because you are distracted by the negative emotions. It can also cause you to feel even worse over the resulting weight loss, which can trigger an ugly cycle of overeating and feeling bad.

    How to get help
    -Learn effective ways to cope with your stress, be it everyday stress or a major stressful event in life.
    -Find something to do when you get bored instead of reaching for food. Go for a walk, do a craft or clean the house.
    -Eat a healthy diet and don't deprive or starve yourself into losing weight. It takes time, so don't stress yourself out about it!
    -Get therapy if you find yourself unable to deal with the cause of your emotional eating.
    -Make an appointment with Dr. Aron to address your emotional eating and get on a path to weight loss success.

    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.

    When Salads Sabotage Your Diet

    Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Aug 25, 2010


    When dining out, salads are the go-to menu option for those trying to lose weight. You think that fresh veggies are healthier and contain less calories than the other carby menu items. But sometimes, a salad is just as bad as anything else on the menu and here's why.

    On a recent "Eat This, Not That!" segment on the "Today Show," Editor in Chief of Men's Health, David Zinczenko, showed us that many salads at popular chain restaurants are loaded in calories, fat and sodium, which could wreck anyone's weight loss plan.

    Applebee's Oriental Chicken Salad
    1310 calories, 93 g fat, 1470 mg sodium
    With not-so-great-for-you fried chicken, this salad has the same calories as a McDonald's Double Quarter Pounder, fries and a coke.

    Wendy's BLT Cobb Salad and Ranch Dressing w/ croutons

    760 calories, 51g fat, 2090 mg sodium
    This salad is just as bad for you as 2 bacon cheeseburgers from Wendy's.

    Quizno's Chicken Caesar Flatbread Salad
    920 calories, 66 g fat, 2090 mg sodium
    With more sodium than you need in a day (max is 2000 mg), this seemingly innocent salad is the equivalent of 3 White Castle bacon and cheese sliders plus 3 fried chicken rings!

    TGI Friday's Santa Fe Chopped Salad
    1800 calories
    Need we say more? This meal contains as many calories as a Burger King Double Whopper, fries and chocolate shake.

    California Pizza Kitchen Waldorf Chicken Salad w/ bleu cheese dressing
    1570 calories, 30 g fat, 2082 mg sodium
    This delicious and healthy-looking salad is just as fattening as a Wendy's 1/2 lb double cheeseburger, fries and medium frostie.

    You can still dine out and even order a salad every now and then, just follow the tips below for guidance.

    Fattening ingredients to avoid
    Fried ingredients, tortilla chips, creamy dressing, cheese

    Diet tricks
    *Sometimes the portions are out of control. Just eat 1/3 of the meal once you've eaten enough healthy calories and take leftovers home.
    *Ask for your dressing on side, then drizzle a small amount as needed.
    *Choose oil and/or vinegar-based dressings. One tsp. of balsamic vinegar (not vinaigrette) can contain as little as 5 calories!

    The Hara Hachi Bu Diet

    Author: Oksana Aron, MD Source: Weight Loss NYC Aug 21, 2010


    Starvation-inducing diets du jour aren't the way to a better body. What matters most is eating healthy, exercise and lifestyle choices.

    There are tricks you can learn to help you along the way. Today, we look at the Japanese concept of Hara Hachi Bu. It's not a fad diet concept, but merely a way to gauge how much food you are putting into your body.

    This idea that originates in Okinawa, Japan -- where the average person mainly consumes lean meats, healthy vegetables, soy foods, fruits and whole grains -- is to eat until you feel that you are 80% full.

    Your stomach takes about 20 minutes to register that it is "full," so it's a great strategy to eat slowly and stop once you start to feel somewhat full. Think you're still hungry? Wait a half hour to see if you're still hungry, but usually your stomach will be satisfied.

    Because of a healthy diet rich in anti-oxidants, Okinawans have 80% lower rates of heart disease and 50-80% lesser chance of breast, colon, ovarian and prostate cancer compared to Americans.

    Healthy Eating Tip


    If you struggle with figuring out when your body is 80% full, try taking away 20% the amount of food you would normally eat.
