Overweight or obese? You have a medical problem.
Get a medical solution.

Obesity isn’t a disease that most people can overcome through willpower alone. The vast majority of people we’ve treated had tried other diet programs, but they’d been left with nothing but disappointment… until they found us. We’ve helped thousands of people lose weight without hunger or surgery. Explore our website to learn more about our medical weight-loss programs, which all follow these core tenets:

Make Rapid Progress
Most people safely lose 2-5 lbs. per week

Build Good Habits
Maintain your results.

Keep It Off
If you get off track, you can return to your ideal weight.

Depending on your plan, you’ll likely only need to pay money out-of-pocket for copays/coinsurance and your meal replacements, which are comparably priced to the average person’s food costs.
