Although NYC is considered a lean city, the big apple has its share of people who are obese or overweight.

In the city of New York, about 55% of all adults are either overweight or obese.

If you are overweight or obese in NYC, and are trying to lose pounds, here are some things to consider!

W8MD’s 3 easy steps to losing weight fast in NYC

Weight loss step 1.

The first step for losing weight in New York City is to know whether you are overweight or obese, and calculate how many pounds do you need to lose weight to be in the normal range.

The most effective and practical way to know your weight relative to your height is the age old BMI scale or body mass index scale. Although not perfect, the BMI works for most normal body built people and gives an idea of where you stand.

Weight loss step 2.

Understand that it is not all BMI – it is also the distribution of body weight. For example, two people with the same BMI, one has very good distribution of weight, and the other has a lot of belly fat – the one with excess belly fat is at higher health risk. To know this, a very simple and practical way is to measure waist circumference.

A waist circumference of 40 inches or above for men and 35 inches and above for women is considered to increase the risks associated with belly fat. These numbers are 5 lower for Asians – Asian men have a cut of 35 inches and Asian women have a cut off of 30 inches in terms of the waist circumference.

Another method used is waist to hip ratio – the ideal being below 1 for men and below 0.8 for women.

Weight loss step 3.

Let us say, you know your BMI is a bit high or you do have some belly fat, you may want to consider losing weight.

Before starting a weight loss program, you may want to know your weight loss options.

Things to consider before deciding on the best weight loss program for you.

Any successful, long-term weight loss program must focus on your overall health, not just on what you eat. Changing your lifestyle is not easy, but adopting healthy habits may help you manage your weight in the long run.

Effective weight-loss programs include ways to keep the weight off for good. These programs promote healthy behaviors that help you lose weight and that you can stick with every day.

Safe and effective weight-loss programs should include

a plan to keep the weight off over the long run

guidance on how to develop healthier eating and physical activity habits

ongoing feedback, monitoring, and support
slow and steady weight-loss goals—usually ½ to 2 pounds per week (though weight loss may be faster at the start of a program)

Some weight-loss programs may use very low-calorie diets (up to 800 calories per day) to promote rapid weight loss among people who have a lot of excess weight. This type of diet requires close medical supervision through frequent office visits and medical tests.

Questions to ask before deciding

Professionals working for weight-loss programs should be able to answer questions about the program’s features, safety, costs, and results. The following are sample questions you may want to ask.
