About The Doctor

As we age, it’s natural to gain weight. This was certainly a challenge that faced me personally in 2010. I have always been active in regular resistance weight training along with aerobic conditioning, but in spite of this, I had gained 30 pounds over the course of 25 years. This weight gain for me resulted in my developing pre-diabetes and what is referred to as Metabolic Syndrome.

As a health care practitioner for the past 30 years, I have treated many patients who were faced with the same challenges I was facing, and it became very clear to me that I had to lead by example. I began my search for a weight loss program that would not only be one that I could easily follow, but would be one that my patients could stick to as well. After doing my due diligence by reviewing the many diets available to healthcare professionals, I decided on a ketogenic based diet. It forever changed my life.

The program highlights for me personally were that it was safe, effective, and straightforward. The weight you lose is fat and your valuable muscle (that I personally worked hard to build) is spared. Very importantly, the food was tasty as well. The old saying "Let food be thy medicine" began to take on a whole new meaning for me as I began looking at the program’s food in addition to my simple home cooked meal as my “daily medicine”. It was to me, the means to an end for me to get back my health.

In February 2010, I committed myself to my new program. I lost 30 pounds of “fat” in 6 weeks and have been able to maintain those results ever since. What took me 25 years to put on, took me 1½ month to take off! The pictures above are of me at my daughters wedding in May 2009 and then at my sons wedding in May 2014.

I have a strong belief in this type of diet and am committed to not only changing the health of my patients, but my community.

How about you? Is it time for you to be Proactive about your health rather than Reactive? If so, we are here to help!

In Health,
