A 10% weight loss can dramatically improve your health, and significantly reduce the impact of many chronic diseases
Why This Matters
Losing and sustaining weight loss makes a big difference in peoples’ lives:
- Helps PREVENT a wide variety of medical problems
- Helps IMPROVE the outcomes of chronic medical conditions
Many medical specialties have now set a target of 10% weight loss to improve problems that include: breast cancer and various other cancers, liver disease, heart disease, including atrial fibrillation, and many other illnesses.
To highlight the potential positive impact, a 10% weight loss can result in a seven-fold decreased rate of recurring episodes of atrial fibrillation.
Our initial evaluation includes a review of previous weight loss history, eating habits, physical activity and a review of current medications, as sometimes they can be inhibiting weight loss.
Access to a smart phone is required. This helps us remotely monitor your progress so we can help guide you, and work together to develop specific options that are right for you.

Together, we use a patient-centered, team approach to help you develop plans and strategies to succeed.

We look forward to working with you to help you realize…

Meaning of 9 Rings
While there are tremendous health benefits with a 10% weight loss, the 9 rings around the center of the circle, shown above, also tell a story. Each ring represents a 1% weight loss, to recognize the positive impact on one’s health, realized along the way. There are many health issues that can be significantly improved with a 5% weight loss. So from a starting point of 1%, all the way to 10%, pounds will be lost, and benefits will be gained! And the closer you get to the center, the greater the positive impact on your overall health.
We look forward to being your guide on this healthful journey.
