So, where do you start to lose weight quickly?

Are there some free weight loss plans or free weight loss diets that I can try?

Before attempting to lose weight or choosing the right weight loss program for you, you may want to first understand your health risks.

  • How do you know if you are overweight or obese?
  • Is there a simple and easy way to know your health risk without expensive medical testing?

The simple and easy way to know your risk is to determine your Body Mass Index, also known as BMI along with a waist circumference, according to Dr. Prab R. Tumpati, MD, a leading weight loss doctor and founder of the popular W8MD medical weight loss centers of America.

Body Mass Index or BMI

  • BMI is a measure of your weight compared to your height. BMI can help adults determine whether they are at a healthy weight.
  • BMI calculations don’t work as well for people who are extremely muscular, very tall, or very short.
  • Overall, BMI is a good indication of healthy weight for the majority of the adult population.
  • BMI does not measure body fat.
  • BMI is a quick and easy measure that can give you an idea of your weight status.

Research has shown that BMI is often similar to body fat levels although for more accurate results, a body composition analysis or DEXA scan might be needed to assess percentage body fat.

BMI Categories:

  • Underweight = <18.5
  • Normal weight = 18.5–24.9
  • Overweight = 25–29.9
  • Obesity = BMI of 30 or greater

There are many online tools available to determine your BMI. OK, you went online, found out you are overweight or obese, and decided to lose some weight. Now, what?

  • Where do you find the best weight loss program?
  • Are there any free weight loss programs?
  • Are there any weight loss programs that have physician trained in this field so I know what works and what is a fad diet for losing weight?

With over 20,000 books written on this topic, I am a bit confused on what is proven and what is considered a fad diet.

Understand the clinically proven measures to lose weight fast.

Obesity is treated using one or more of these 5 clinically proven weight loss measures: „

  1. a diet low in calories called very low calorie diets or low calorie diets
  2. „increased physical activity along with a reduced calorie diet (exercise alone is not very useful as it builds heavier muscle and makes you hungrier)
  3.  behavior therapy for weight loss „
  4. diet pills or prescription weight loss medications „
  5. bariatric or weight loss surgery

Reviews of our weight loss program

Dr. Tumpati has helped me lose almost 50 lbs in 6 months. This has been a gradual process and a new way of life for me. Slow and steady is what will win the race for long term success. For me there were no side effects but he was always asking and checking to make sure I was following a healthy way of eating. Laura has also always been there to answer any concerns or questions I have had throughout the process and they have always been courteous and respectful to me.

I have referred many friends to the office and will continue to do so as I feel Dr. Tumpati believes that everyone can achieve weight loss safely and effectively. Every person is different and with that everyone needs to find what will lead to their individual success. I am at my goal weight and am now at a maintenance level. I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Tumpati and W8MD.
