Now that you have decided to lose weight it can be a struggle to find the best diet center in NYC.  No one wants to waste their money.  Just as weight loss is specific for each individual, finding a program that will be successful for you is also individual.  Here are some things to consider when you are choosing the best diet center in NYC.

Medical-weight-loss-doctor-nyIs the program healthy?

Make sure the program you choose is healthy and safe.  The program should provide your body with enough calories to keep it functioning properly, and provide balanced nutrition?  Fad diets are too restrictive and lack proper nutrition for your body.  A lack of nutrition can lead to a loss of lean muscle tissue and can slow your metabolism.

Is the weight loss sustainable?   

There is no such thing as a quick fix.  Crash diets are simply not sustainable.  They claim quick and easy weight loss but they fail to offer proper or balanced nutrition.  As a result, the weight piles back on as soon as you stop the program.  A gradual approach is a healthier way to lose weight and will be more sustainable in the long run.

Does the program include counseling?

The program that you choose should include counseling, motivation, and support.  It should teach healthy lifestyle changes that will be beneficial now, and are sustainable after you achieve your desired weight loss.  The program should also have a plan of action should you reach a plateau.  Some plans will include these items and others will charge extra for them.

Is the program flexible? 

Each person is individual and unique, their weight loss plan should be just as individual and unique.  What works for Susan from work may not work for you.  The program you choose should take this into account.  The center should evaluate your needs and desires and adjust the program to fit with them

Does the program have a proven track record?

Check the track record of the center. What is their success rate?  How long have they been in business?  What is their maintenance success?

Remember all of these things and do your research before choosing a weight loss program. Most programs will offer a free consultation so that you can check them out before signing up.
