Medically Supervised Weight Loss for Obesity

People who are affected by obesity and have had limited success losing weight on their own may benefit from medically supervised weight loss through NYU Langone’s New You program or our very low calorie diet (VLCD) plan. These programs offer low-calorie meal replacements and structured support from our weight loss experts and registered dietitians to help you lose weight as quickly and safely as possible.

Medically supervised weight loss using meal replacements may be recommended for people who need to safely lose a significant amount of weight in order to control other serious conditions, such as type 2 diabetes or hypertension. This program can also help to decrease the risk of complications and improve recovery from surgery, if it is needed to repair worn joints, a hernia, or other obesity-related conditions.

Our weight loss team also provides ongoing nutritional and behavioral support to reinforce new eating and exercise habits and help you maintain weight loss.
