Weight loss specialist offers tips for a successful diet.

By now some folks who resolved to lose weight in the new year are starting to fall off the wagon.

Dr. Scott Deron is a longtime cardiologist.

He has recently also become a medical bariatrician, helping patients with weight loss.

As we head toward the new year Dr. Deron shared some of the tips he gives his patients.

- Eat a breakfast high in protein.

- Drink water, never sugary drinks.

- Try a heart-healthy snack like almonds or walnuts.

- Get physically active.

Dr. Deron also tells patients to write on a three-by-five card the reasons they want to lose weight.

"When it becomes difficult I ask my patients to pull cards out and look at that," he says.
