We know you want to be thinner & healthier, but losing weight isn’t easy and despite the promises weight-loss programs make, too many people find themselves dissappointed when they don’t lose weight or gain back what they lost.
Our medical team has dedicated their lives to helping people identify the root causes of obesity and treat them accordingly. Today, thousands of people are living their healthiest life ever due to our proven Keep-It-Off system.
It worked for them and it can work for you!
We understand how hopeless it feels to have tried everything, only to be right back where you started. We’re different and our results are different.

Dr. John Hernried developed the Keep-It-Off program after struggling in his own life to maintain a healthy weight. Frustrated with fad diets and unattainable workout routines, he set out to create a better way. Keep-It-Off is the result of years of medical research and data science.

Why Choose Keep-It-Off?
We’re not new, and we’re not a fad diet. We’ve been here for decades and our patient’s success stories are proof that our approach works to help you lose weight and keep it off.
Our two-pronged approach, combining in-clinic care and mobile app technology work together seamlessly to create an incredible experience of support, accountability and convenience.
We treat obesity as the disease that it is! Here's the truth - losing weight isn't all about will power. Excess weight is a medical problem and like any disease, the best approach incorporates professional medical care.
