Who Am I? A Dieter Just Like You!

In the ‘Before’ picture, I weighed 250 lbs! The ‘After’ photo is me now, at about 175 lbs. With hard work, knowledge, and determination, I have been able to lose weight and keep it off. You can too! Just remember, struggling with weight loss is not a personality flaw!

I am also a physician who has helped many people lose weight with Low Carb Diet Products, Low Fat Diet Food, and through my medical weight loss clinic, Physician’s Plan.
