In New Jersey, about 60.7% of adults were overweight, or obese with a Body Mass Index of 25 or greater while about 23.8% of adults were obese, with a Body Mass Index of 30 or greater according to the data from Centers for Disease Control (CDC)

What went wrong with our diet?

Instead of blaming the victim for obesity, or yourself for obesity, it is important to understand what drives the weight gain, such as insulin resistance that affects up to 71 percent of the entire population out of which 35 percent already have metabolic syndrome.

Confusing choices

With over 20,000 books written on this topic with so much misleading information, let a trained practicing weight loss physician, Dr Prab R. Tumpati,MD educate you on the true science and art of obesity medicine.

Why the food pyramid failed?

The now withdrawn and failed food guide pyramid was a disaster as it advocated a low fat, but glycemic diet that leads to increased risk of insulin resistance which in turn causes weight gain.

Metabolic starvation in the obese

Most people that gain weight are not on a mission to gain weight intentionally. It is the paradoxical metabolic starvation that happens in the obese due to insulin resistance with a compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin that drives weight gain, hunger and metabolic starvation leading to food cravings, and weight gain!

Weight loss options in New Jersey

In order to lose weight, understand the proven options to lose weight in New Jersey including the following.

  • Low calorie diet (LCD), or Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD)
  • Physical activity for weight loss which only works in combination with diet as exercise on its own is shown to be pretty useless for weight loss since exercise stimulates appetite and builds heavier muscle tissue thereby negating any weight loss with calories burned. However, a combination of low calorie diet and exercise, or diet alone would work for weight loss but not exercise alone.
  • Surgical options for weight loss such as the gastric bypass surgery can be an option for some to lose weight in New Jersey although most might regain the weight even after surgery and a behavior weight loss program is still needed for long term weight loss success in New Jersey.
