Here are some frequently asked questions and answers when it comes to losing weight in New York City.
Before we go to these questions, let us briefly review what percentage of adults in NYC are overweight or obese?
In New York City, obesity is epidemic just as in the rest of the nation, albeit slightly better: more than half of adult New Yorkers are considered overweight (34%) or obese (22%).
Taking both overweight (BMI of 25 or more) and obese (BMI of 30 or more), the overall overweight rate in NYC is a staggering 56% of all adults in NYC.
What is causing my weight gain in NYC as I do not eat too much intentionally?
While there are many complex causes of weight gain, here are some of the most common causes of weight gain:
Insulin resistance or metabolic weight gain is by far one of the most common causes of weight gain, especially if have some excess belly or upper body weight, according to Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD, founder of W8MD (pronounced W’eight’MD) Medical Weight Loss Centers of America and a leading medical weight loss physician in NYC.
Some of the other causes include lack of proper sleep or sleep disorder such as insomnia, stress, certain medications, genetic factors, hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, food addition, eating disorders such as binge eating disorder, stress eating, night eating, pregnancy, fluid overload, quitting smoking, menopause etc.
Consulting with a W8MD weight loss physician that is knowledgeable about the complex causes of weight gain might not only help you understand and change the reversible causes of weight gain, but also help you lose weight fast in NYC, and understand how to keep the weight off!

I am physically fairly active but still can’t seem to lose weight by exercising in NYC, why so?
Although it might come as a shocking news to many, the science is very clear that exercise alone is use for weight loss, without a restricted diet at the same. Despite what the fitness companies want you to believe, it is wide reported and proven beyond reasonable doubt that the role of exercise is more important in helping you maintain weight. When it comes to losing weight, the role exercise plays is a minor, supportive role, to a reduced calorie diet.
Here are some articles on why exercise alone is useless for weight loss.
