W8MD Weight Loss Program

W8MD Weight Loss Program

W8MD medical weight loss plan is based on the following simple principles. W8MD Physicians understand that weight loss is a complex process that needs careful monitoring by an obesity medicine physician well versed with the concepts in obesity medicine.

Weight loss success stories

Weight loss success stories

In order to help you lose weight, the W8MD program aims to supply the body with nutrition at a regular interval with limited calories but adequate protein and other nutrition the body needs.

The simplest way to provide the balanced nutrition at very limited calories is to use prepackaged meal replacement diet plans such as VLCD(Very Low Calorie Diet) or LCD(Low Calorie Diet) Plans. However, you can choose to prepare your own meals with instructions from W8MD.

Glycemic Index of Foods 

If you were to make your own meals, the W8MD program requires you to understand the glycemic index of foods. The higher the glycemic index, the higher the demands on the body to produce insulin. Consuming high glycemic index foods can increase the risk of developing insulin resistance leading to a condition called metabolic syndrome or insulin resistance syndrome. Affecting one in three Americans, metabolic syndrome increases the risk of diabetes, heart disease, and a host of other conditions including increased risk of certain cancers. A list of foods with their glycemic index can be found on our website athttp://w8md.com/index.php/w8d-healthy-living/glycemic-index-of-foods

Think protein

As we evolved as hunter’s and gatherers, we are genetically programmed to eat protein, vegetables, nuts, and fruits. As agriculture is only 10,000 years old as opposed to the age of human race, we have not fully adopted to the primarily grain based agricultural product consumption. W8MD understands this and emphasizes the fact that, when carbohydrates are supplied to the body without adequate amount of protein, it leads to fat tissue accumulation and decrease in lean body mass, insulin resistance and metabolic syndrome.

Think Low Carb.

Supplying the body with high glycemic carbohydrates without adequate protein leads to insulin resistance, the root cause of metabolic syndrome leading to belly fat, risk of diabetes, heart disease and other health issues including increased risk of cancer.

Is Saxenda the weight loss drug we have been waiting for?

The latest weight loss drug approved by the U.S. FDA, Saxenda for weight loss, is generating a lot of interest among patients, doctors, and even among the investors – is this the game changer drug for weight loss?

On December 23rd, 2014, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Saxenda (liraglutide [rDNA origin] injection) for weight loss – the 2nd drug to be approved this year after Orexigen’s Contrave (Bupropion and Naltrexone) was approved just a few months ago.

FDA finally waking up to the epidemic of obesity!

Insurance covered medical weight loss NYC Philadelphia Insurance covered medical weight loss NYC Philadelphia

After a long gap of 13 years, FDA started approving new weight loss drugs since mid 2012 when it approved Qsymia and Belviq! And since then, approved 2 more drugs in 2014 – Contrave and Saxenda for help lose weight.

Approved for use in adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater (obesity) or adults with a BMI of 27 or greater (overweight) who have at least one weight-related condition such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, Saxenda has the same active ingredient liraglutide as the popular diabetes drug Victoza.

Liraglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that works more on the real issue that causes weight gain, unlike the traditional stimulant based weight loss medications!

In a study with 4,800 obese and overweight patients with and without significant weight-related conditions that received Saxenda with counseling regarding diet showed that patients had an average weight loss of 4.5 percent from baseline compared to treatment with a placebo (inactive pill) at one year. In this trial, 62 percent of patients treated with Saxenda lost at least 5 percent of their body weight compared with 34 percent of patients treated with placebo.

Results from another study in patients with type 2 diabetes showed that patients had an average weight loss of 3.7 percent from baseline compared to treatment with placebo at one year. In this trial, 49 percent of patients treated with Saxenda lost at least 5 percent of their body weight compared with 16 percent of patients treated with placebo.

best weight loss program weight loss program reviews

Patients using Saxenda should be evaluated after 16 weeks to determine if the treatment is working. If a patient has not lost at least 4 percent of baseline body weight, Saxenda should be discontinued, as it is unlikely that the patient will achieve and sustain clinically meaningful weight loss with continued treatment.

Saxenda is manufactured by Novo Nordisk A/S, Bagsvaerd, Denmark and is distributed by Novo Nordisk, Inc. Plainsboro, New Jersey.

While concerns remain about potential side effects including rare thyroid rumors, pancreatitis etc, the lower strength of the same drug has been very popular as Victoza for patients with diabetes and long been used by physicians off label for weight loss!

W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers offers Saxenda for weight loss for eligible patients!

8 steps to losing weight fast

If you are overweight or obese, and trying to lose weight, here are w8md’s 8 Steps to losing weight

w8md weight loss w8md weight loss
  1. Weight Loss Step 1.
    Check your BMI using an online BMI calculator. Go to http://www.w8md.com and find the BMI calculator on the right side of the page, put in your information, and find out your BMI.
  2. Weight Loss Step 2.
    Get a measureing tape and measure your waist circumference in the most prominent part of the belly. Also measure the hip circumference. If you are male and have a waist of over 40 inches in the most prominent part, if you are a female and have a waist of over 36 inches, you may have underlying insulin resistance or metabolic syndrome that may be causing your weight gain, especially in the belly and upper part of the body. (For Asians, the threshold is 35 inches for men and 31 inches for women).
  3. Weight Loss Step 3.
    Check if you meet the criteria for metabolic syndrome. Go to http://w8md.com/w8d-healthy-living/w8md-metabolic-syndrome-meter and see if you meet the criteria for metabolic syndrome.
  4. Weight Loss Step 4.
    Find a weight loss program that accepts health insurance (if you have health insurance)
  5. Weight Loss Step 5.
    Consult with an Obesity Medicine Trained Physician knowledgeable about metabolic syndrome, insulin resistance, and other causes for weigth gain and can help you lose weight safely and effectively using evidence based methods
  6. Weight Loss Step 6.
    Start a Low Calorie or Very Low Calorie Diet Plan that cuts you calories by about 500-1000 calories a day so you can lose about 1-2 pounds a week
  7. Weight Loss Step 7.Start walking or other low to moderate intensivity exercise program. Understand that exercise alone is useless for weigth loss but in combination with a reduced calorie diet, it helps.
  8. Weight Loss Step 8.
    Start a behavior change plan to help you stay on track with your goals.

8 things to consider for fast weight loss 

For people who are overweight or obese, this will mean Very Low Calorie (VLCD) or Low Calorie Diets (LCD) diets with or without meal replacement.
• Increase physical activity in combination with VLCD or LCD diet and reduce time spent
in sedentary behaviors.
• Consider appropriate appetite suppressant medications such as Adipex/Phentermine, Topiramate, Belviq, Qsymia, Bontril/Phendimetrazine when indicated as directed by the weight loss or obesity medicine physician to reduce hunger, increase metabolism and reduce cravings for fast and effective weight loss in Philadelphia or New York City.

• Consider reducing daily sodium intake to about 2,300 milligrams (mg) or lower. For those that are 51 and older and those of any age who are African American or have hypertension, diabetes, or chronic kidney disease, a further reduction in sodium to 1,500 mg is recommended.

• Reduce saturated fats to no more than 10 percent of total calories by
replacing them with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids.  This means reducing red meats, increasing sea food etc.


• Limit or eliminate most high glycemic foods such as refined grains.


• If alcohol is consumed, it should be no more than one drink per day for women and two drinks per day for men.

 

Drink up to 8 glasses of water a day

Walk up to 8,000 to 10,000 steps a day. You can get a pedometer to help with this.

• Increase vegetable and fruit intake by choosing a variety of colored fruits and vegetables as these natural colors from fruits have important anti-oxidants, especially dark-green and red and orange vegetables and beans and peas.
• Consume at least half of all grains as whole grains. Increase whole-grain intake by replacing refined grains with whole grains.
• Increase intake of protein based sources of food such as milk, other
milk products such as yogurt, cheese, or fortified soy beverages.
• Choose a variety of protein foods, which include seafood, lean meat and poultry, eggs, beans and peas, soy products, and unsalted nuts and seeds.

How to lose fat weight fast

Weight Loss Science Reviewed By A Weight Loss Doctor

  • Are you a bit overweight or obese? Overwhelmed-Obese-Woman-Looking-398
  • Are you searching for ways to lose weight or body fat?
  • Are you interested in understanding what is causing you to gain weight?
  • Do you have belly fat or upper body weight that you are trying to lose?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you are not alone. As a fellowship trained obesity medicine physician, let me review proven and effective ways to lose weight.

No matter what anybody might tell you  – there are about 5 proven ways to lose weight.

Obesity is treated using one or more of these 5 proven methods for weight loss:

Weight Loss Option 1.

A diet low in calories using Low Calorie Diets (LCD’s) or Very Low Calorie Diets (VLCD)
Weight Loss Option 2.

Increased physical activity most effectively with diet low in calories as exercise alone is not that useful for weight loss
Weight Loss Option 3.

Intensive Behavior Therapy(IBT) by a trained obesity medicine physician
Weight Loss Option 4.

Prescription medications such as Phentermine, the new weight loss drug Qsymia, or other medications
Weight Loss Option 5.

Weight-loss bariatric surgery which shrinks the stomach and forces you to have a Low Calorie Diet (number 1 or number 2). Since the stomach can re-expand after a couple of years, and given the complications, risks of surgery etc., bariatric surgery for weight loss is not for every body.

 Let us look at each of these weight loss options and how to combine different options such as VLCD or LCD with a weight loss medication, with a little bit of exercise for optimal and fast weight loss.

Sleep disorders and weight gain go together!

Since weight and sleep go together, most of the W8MD centers are able to address sleep issues such as snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, narcolepsy, insomnia and restless leg syndrome to name a few.

Limited Acceptance in the Insurance Physician Weight Loss Program
Due to popular demand for the insurance weight loss program, we can only accept about 10 new patients per week at this time in our New York City or Greater Philadelphia medical weight loss offices.

W8MD Medical Weight Loss Center’s Insurance Physician Weight Loss Program  has helped patients achieve their goals by using a proven four-step method for safe weight loss:

  • a physician-supervised diet and weight loss medication,
  • a personally structured and administered exercise program
  • a comprehensive behavior therapy, and
  • ongoing weight maintenance support.

We can help you achieve long-lasting weight loss without feeling constantly hungry and deprived. When you resent your weight loss plan because you feel constantly hungry, it is much more difficult to maintain any significant lifelong changes. When you feel hungry, you are biologically driven to eat, and diet plans that force you to fight that biological impulse can be difficult to maintain. At W8MD Medical Weight Loss Program, we want to help you achieve lasting weight loss results and make changes that will keep you healthy for a lifetime.

W8MD Medical Weight Loss Program is dedicated to individualized, affordable treatment and as one of the very physician supervised medical weight loss programs to accept most health insurances for the weight loss physician visits.  Our non-surgical medical weight loss program is based on the latest medical research and utilizes proven methods to lose weight rapidly and keep it off for a lifetime.

NYC weight loss success story 1 – Ann T.

My initial consultation here was for sleep apnea. I am also quite overweight but years of failure at the usual methods had me convinced that there was no hope on that issue. After dealing with the Apnea, Dr. Tumapti diplomatically asked if I was interested in dealing with the issue of my weight. I explained my many failures in this regard and he informed me “It is not your fault”.

He is the first person EVER to say such a thing to me. Even those who did not directly say it was my fault implied it, or I felt as if they did. Dr. Tumpati proceeded to educate me about obesity and why it happens. He is knowledgeable , non judgmental and skilled in helping patients design the program that works.

So, for the first time in twenty years I am actually losing weight. I have lost about 60 pounds since June; from a size 22 to a loose 16. I can bend over and tie my shoes, my knees work without complaining and I no longer need blood pressure medication. The staff is helpful and efficient, the program works and I recommend this doctor without reservation to anyone who may be struggling with a weight problem.

Rumeza’s weight loss success story in Brooklyn, NY

My weight has been up and down most of my life….mostly up. Over the summer I tried to become more active by running but I did not alter my eating habits. I lost a little weight but the pounds were much harder to drop than they were in my younger.After seeing Dr.Tumpati’s ad in a magazine ,I decided to see Dr.Tumpati.

Dr. Tumpati and the staff have been excellent. Basically, I made an appointment where I was weighed and had my measurements taken.The waiting time is not more than 15 minutes and the staff is very friendly which is a plus point.I then spoke with the Dr. about my goals. He then put me on the VLCD diet which consists of shakes and bars and one regular meal. During this time I also began running regularly.

I saw results right from the beginning. This diet also made me realize that I was able to get through the day without eating as much as I was. Once the weight started coming off my energy levels rose dramatically.

I am currently down 22 lbs in about 2 months or so and I feel amazing.I highly recommend Dr. Tumpati and Sleep Medical Associates, Sleep and W8MD Weight Loss Center for Weight Management.
