Weight Loss With Semaglutide

Michael Aziz, MD

Primary Care Physician & Internist located in Midtown East, New York, NY

Obesity is linked to a shortened lifespan. For Dr. Michael Aziz, weight management is not just about weight loss: it is about longevity.  Dr. Aziz's approach is totally different from what's out there. Dr. Michael Aziz's plan includes the right natural diet, checking hormones, speeding up metabolism, or suppressing hunger with Semaglutide (Ozempic), Tirzepatide ( Mounjaro), and other medications. 

Dr. Aziz 's approach targets obesity from all aspects. It is not about just reduction in calories.  Dr. Aziz has pioneered and is the author of "The Perfect 10 Diet," a national bestseller. "The Perfect 10 Diet" balances 10 key hormones.

The book hit the number 1 spot on Amazon in 2011 for 12 consecutive weeks. It was major achievement for an unknown author.  "The Perfect 10 Diet" was featured on all major networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC, WGN, CNN, Telemundo, etc) and countless TV shows. 'The Perfect 10 Diet" was translated into several different languages. Both low-fat and low-carb diets mess up hormones. Those type of diets are not sustainable. "The Perfect 10 Diet" is the only diet in the market that balances hormones, so the results are durable.

"The Perfect 10 Diet" is about eating natural food: real eggs, butter that we shunned for decades. "The Perfect 10 Diet" does not allow fake fats like margarine or transfats that are allowed on low-fat diets. Transfats are a total no-no for Dr. Aziz . "The Perfect 10 Diet' does not allow dangerous chemicals such as nitrites found in bacon and sausages which are allowed on low-carb and keto diets for their relationship to several types cancers. "The Perfect 10 Diet" does not allow artificial sweeteners and tons of all other dangerous chemicals in many popular diets for their bad effects on hormones. "The Perfect 10 Diet" is all about eating clean food. Nothing fake. For Dr. Aziz, it is all about longevity, so he emphasizes to eat  less  animal protein and not increase animal
