MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
Supervised Weight Loss Tailored for You
Overweight, obesity, and medical conditions caused by over-nutrition are epidemic in America thanks to changes to our diet and lifestyle in the last 50 years. These changes are often out of our control, and to make matters worse, the medical establishment has recommended strategies for weight loss that have been unhelpful and in some cases flat out wrong. “Eat less.” “Fewer calories.” “Exercise more.” “Low fat!” Sound familiar? If you live with obesity or overweight then you know that these strategies don’t work, and sometimes actually add fuel to the fire of diabetes and other medical problems. Ultimately the number of the scale is not what matters. Feeling good in your own skin and reducing your risk of chronic disease is our goal, and we can help you get there.
New understanding of the metabolic factors that affect weight gain and fat loss have empowered us with tools that help average people reach their weight loss goals. The BURN Performance Medicine approach to weight loss will help you understand the sources of your weight gain and develop a personalized plan to cause predictable weight loss while optimizing nutrition.

The BURN Performance method employs the solid science that underlies popular diets but without the hype, the products, and the gimmicks of “dieting.” BURN helps you establish a life-long relationship with food that is sustainable and healthy. Our strategy does not go to extremes, and most importantly, it supports optimal metabolic health to help reduce blood sugar, cholesterol, and risk for chronic inflammatory disease. We do prescribe weight loss medications including Ozempic (Semaglutide), Mounjaro (Tirzepatide) and others when they are appropriate, and we will discuss whether this may be right for you. I have been doing this work one-on-one in my practice for years with impressive results, and I am so pleased to finally bring this effective evidence-based strategy to people outside the clinic.
In addition to your consultation you will receive 1-year access to all exclusive web content from BURN Performance Medicine, including useful resources to aid healthy weight loss:
