Are you a typical New York professional who is running all day, often forgetting to eat breakfast, eating “some form” of lunch on the run, struggling to make it to the gym, and not sitting down until late in the evening to eat a huge dinner?
Do you often feel stressed, and stay up at night “stuffing” your feelings away, or not sleeping well because of the stress?
WOW, and then you wonder why you are not losing weight?
Are you ready to take control?
Let Anand Medical Spa help you….
Did you know that stress, lack of sleep, and starving yourself can actually be causing you to gain weight?
Due to the changes in several hormones in our body during periods of prolonged stress, starvation or lack of sleep, our body shifts to a state of increased appetite, and decreased metabolism which results in us actually gaining weight.
Given the above stressful environment we live in today, it has become difficult for many to lose weight and/or maintain it. Each of us has different reasons for having difficulty managing our weight. Anand Medical Spa has established a team of experts to help you with your individual needs ranging from a personal trainer/nutritionist, Reiki specialist, yoga instructor, acupuncturist, therapist to our top NYC physician, Dr. Chugh who will help guide you through this journey of not just losing weight, but starting a new healthy lifestyle.
Stop making those New Year’s resolutions you never keep! Whether you are overweight or just have difficulty maintaining your weight, we can help you establish the lifestyle that will not just help you look and feel great today, but for the rest of your life!
- 68% of the US population is either overweight or obese.
- Being overweight or obese is a contributor to many health problems including, but not limited to Type II Diabetes, Hypertension, Coronary Artery Disease (Heart Attack and Heart failure), Gallstones, Osteoarthritis, Obstructive Sleep Apnea and several types of cancer including prostate and colon.
- Obesity has been defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) as a BMI of 30 and above.
- BMI alone does not give us an idea of your % body fat and therefore other tests such as a bioelectrical impedance analysis are necessary.
- Obesity is often multifactorial, based on both genetic and behavioral factors. Accordingly, treatment of obesity usually requires more than just dietary changes and exercise.
Why is it important to have a physician guide you through your weight loss:
There is no single treatment or one-size-fits-all strategy that will work for everyone. Our weight loss plans are supervised by a board-certified physician who can also help you manage other conditions related to your weight loss such as elevated blood pressure, diabetes, an underactive thyroid or elevated cholesterol. In addition, our physician will refer you to the appropriate resources for your individual needs such a therapist for any diagnosed food addiction or eating disorder, or a physical therapist or restorative yoga instructor for any chronic pain preventing you from exercising. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight is a journey which requires much guidance by trained professionals.

At Anand Medical Spa, we offer a variety of quality programs designed to help you lose weight safely and effectively, and maintain your weight loss long-term. We will customize a plan for each patient to accommodate specific medical conditions, physical limitations and personal health goals. Our goal is to help you develop a healthier lifestyle through behavior modification and lifestyle change, so that you lose weight today and keep it off tomorrow.
Our physician will take a very thorough history to learn about your past medical history, your genetic predispositions, your struggles with your weight including any stress you are facing and your availability to commit to exercise. We will want to know your schedule, your taste preferences and your motivation level so that we can tailor a program just for your needs so that you can reach your goals. By delving into the underlying physical, genetic, hormonal, social and emotional issues that may be acting as impediments to weight management, we can affect thorough and long-lasting weight loss results.
We will also give you an opportunity to sit down with our Nutrition Consultant and Personal Trainer to help incorporate a guided diet and exercise routine into your weight loss program.
