Healthy nutrition and regular physical activity can produce long term health benefits. People of all ages, shapes, sizes, and abilities can benefit from eating healthy and being physically active. Poor diet and lack of physical activity are the most important factors contributing to major health problems such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and some types of cancer. In addition, it leads to poor self esteem and impairs normal social interaction and relationships.

Our experienced Drs. Jack Rosemarin and Alfred Roston have perfected a nutrition program that has helped patients lose weight for over 25 years, some patients losing more than 25 lbs. Patients lose 3-5 lbs per week on average. Please call us for expert guidance if you or a loved one has a weight problem or you simply wish to lose weight for the beach.

We have some of the biggest losers!

And here is what some of our biggest losers have to say…………….

“The best program I ever had!!!…. And trust me when I say that…. I have been through many programs till a friend referred me to Drs. Rosemarin and Roston. The doctors helped me reach my goal in a short period of time…… And the staff is so caring and supportive.”

“Dieting isn’t simple! They made it look like a piece of cake, which I could have and eat it too……..It’s simple and it is successful…… I am glad my primary care doctor referred me to this program….. And I love the office ambience.”

“There are a number of programs out there for weight loss but none as supportive and successful……. I not only lost 90 lbs in 2 years but after another 2 years it is still off………”

“I have diabetes … and hypertension… and a few other problems….my endocrinologist told me I had a high BMI and I needed to lose around 20 lbs …. I tried doing it myself… I lost a few lbs over a few weeks which I gained back again over the next few weeks… it was like a see-saw battle … and then my doctor guided me to the program at Digestive Disease and Nutrition Center of Westchester…… Thanks to my endocrinology doctor.”

Watch what goes on your plate!

A well balanced diet along with active life style is important for healthy living. Before you eat, watch what goes into your plate or in your cup or in your bowl. Foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low-fat dairy products, and lean protein foods contain the nutrients you need without too many calories.
