Weight Loss Specialist In Manhattan

Michael Aziz, MD

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

Medical weight management is not about fad diets, it is about a lifestyle change. Changing your mindset with the right guidance and right approach. Have you failed on one diet after the other? It is not your fault. The right path can give you results if you are eating the right diet, controlling your metabolism, regulating your hormones, and suppressing your hunger. Our medical weight loss management is based on the latest in medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of weight gain and obesity. Dr. Aziz has pioneered and is the author of "The Perfect 10 Diet." The Perfect 10 Diet balances hormones. Both low-fat and low-carb diets mess up hormones. No wonder, they failed us. The Perfect 10 Diet is the only diet in the market that balances hormones, so the results are sustainable and durable. Why? Because the Perfect 10 Diet is about eating real food. Nothing modern about it. No processed food like cereals on low-fat diets. The Perfect 10 Diet is about eating natural food like real eggs, and butter that we shunned for decades. The Perfect 10 Diet does not allow fake fats like margarine or trans fats that were allowed on low-fat diets. Trans fats are a total no-no on The Perfect 10 Diet. The Perfect 10 Diet does not allow dangerous chemicals such as nitrates found in bacon and sausages which are allowed on low-carb diets for their relationship to several 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. Because for Dr. Aziz, it is all about longevity and health, not just weight loss.
