Since 1984, Medical Diet Consultants has helped thousands of overweight individuals reach their goals. Our safe medically supervised weight loss program in NYC involves exercise, nutrition, the use of prescription medication, and meal replacement protein supplements.

We help you maintain a safe and medically approved diet to reach your goal weight. We have a team of highly qualified medical weight loss doctors who can help you to lose up to 5lbs a week. Our weight loss programs provides safe weight and fat loss.

In addition to prescribing appetite suppressant medication and encouraging a daily routine of activity, here are some helpful nutrition guides that we believe will help you with your weight loss.

Fill you up foods:

  • Soup – To get the most volume for the fewest Calories, choose low-fat soups with lots of veggies, such as minestrone, Manhattan clam chowder, or low-fat cream of mushroom.
  • Oatmeal – A heavy bowl of oatmeal provides fiber and slow-release carbohydrates that stabilize blood sugar. Choose old-fashioned oats instead of thin-cut “instant” oats, which are more quickly digested.
  • Grapefruit – Eating grapefruit may boost weight loss, according to one small study from the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. A compound in grapefruit can interfere with some prescription medications, so consult with your doctor before adding it to your diet.
  • Nonfat Milk – The protein in milk helps keep hunger at bay, and studies show that dairy-rich diets may speed weight loss by revving the body’s natural fat-burning systems.
  • Salad – Most vegetables are more than 90 percent water and are low in calories. Enjoy big portions for fewer Calories by adding light and low-fat versions of dressing and cheese.
