About Us

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.

Watch Adrian's Story

It was a no-judgment zone.

When you are considered overweight or obese, and you go to a new place where you don't know anyone, you kind of wonder in the back of your head, 'Are they going to judge me?' . . . It was always a learning and nurturing environment, where if you 'mess up,' you're okay, you're amongst friends, we can all learn from each other."

Watch Sarah's Story

I was constantly worried about eating...yet eating.

It was so liberating to not be controlled by food anymore. Then I lost the weight and knew there was no way I wanted to go back to that again.
