The weight-loss experts at Long Island Medical Wellness scale back weight gain by getting to the heart of the physical and emotional issues that may have caused it. The staff, which include a doctor who specializes in bariatric medicine, administer a combination of energy-boosting supplements, personalized meal plans, and exercise to tackle the metabolic aspects of staying slim. Meanwhile, individual counseling sessions provide valuable encouragement and advice, such as tips on how to use asparagus spears to make a filling soup or a fetching bolo tie. The center also bolsters patients' self-images with aesthetic treatments, such as cosmetic injectables.
Markisha Beckford studies the human body the way an engineer might study a particularly complex machine, so it makes sense that she works at a place called The Fitness Workshop. Having trained with top fitness experts such as Dr. Andrew Weil and Dr. Deepak Chopra, Beckford is fully equipped to help clients adopt healthier dietary and exercise routines. Her holistic approach to health examines how these two areas—nutrition and fitness—are connected, and how an improvement to one might benefit the other. When she's not leading classes in spinning and Pilates, Beckford offers nutritional advice and posts healthy recipes on her website.
