As a leading New York City internist, Dr. Aziz works with overweight Midtown East patients to develop individualized weight loss programs that are based on each person's health profile, so patients can achieve long-lasting weight loss without deprivation.
For most people, weight loss is not easy. Even when dieting and exercise help reduce weight, the results often are not long-lasting. Many researchers believe most diet and exercise plans fail to achieve long-term results because they're based on broad premises about weight loss and the roles diet and exercise play, rather than being focused on the unique needs affecting an individual's weight gain or loss. Individualized weight loss helps people understand why they gain weight and what they need to do to lose weight and keep it off, relying on lifestyle changes that can achieve long-term weight loss and improved health overall.
Most weight gain is related in some way to hormones. When hormones are not balanced properly, often through poor dietary choices, the body gains weight and is unable to sustain long-term weight loss. The Perfect 10 Diet is based on the 10 key hormones that affect weight gain and loss, focusing on foods and eating habits that help ensure those hormones stay in balance. The diet is focused on realistic dietary changes that don't leave dieters hungry between meals, one of the major causes of bingeing and “cheating.” It seeks not only to help dieters achieve a healthy weight, but to establish the eating behaviors that can improve overall health and wellness as well.
Hormonal shifts caused by poor diet, age and lifestyle factors are among the most common barriers to weight loss. The best way to overcome those factors is to learn how to eat right – not just consuming fewer calories, but making sure the foods you eat support healthy weight and nutrition so your body is tuned to work with you to shed pounds.
