  1. a diet low in calories such as VLCD or LCD Diets 
  2. exercises for losing weight usually has to be combined with VLCD or LCD low calorie diet!
  3. behavior therapy for weight loss to address any food addiction, and other behavioral causes for weight gain
  4. prescription medications of diet pills such as Phentermine, Topiramate, the new Qsymia, Belviq etc.
  5. weight-loss surgery or Bariatric Surgery which forces VLCD or LCD diets post surgery.
Correction of insulin resistance, eating disorders, sleep problems, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies etc. plays an important role in helping you lose weight safely in NYC!
