Keep the Weight Off

Of course, any low calorie diet can help you lose weight. The challenge is keeping it off after the diet is over. We see successful weight management as a matter of acquiring new skills, not just learning new information. We’ll teach these skills in specially designed weight loss classes, and then focusing on continued weight loss in our Phase 2 program as well as long-term weight maintenance in our Phase 3 program. We’ll work closely with you as you learn and practice these new skills until they become an automatic part of your daily life.

Medical Evaluation for Abnormal Weight Gain

Many people gain weight despite eating healthier and getting more physical activity. If you are working hard at losing weight and are not seeing results, you may have a medical problem. We specialize in the medical and hormonal evaluation and treatment of abnormal weight gain and diet-resistant obesity.

Hormones and body weight are very closely related. Often times, a hormonal disorder can be the underlying cause of weight gain or failure to lose weight with diet and exercise. An evaluation with a board-certified endocrinologist can identify treatable hormonal problems that may be interfering with weight loss. Because abnormal weight gain is a medical problem, insurance companies usually allow a full evaluation with an endocrinologist. An evaluation typically includes obtaining a detailed history, physical examination and laboratory testing.

There are many different medical problems that can cause weight gain or make weight loss difficult. Dr. Isaacs prides himself in performing a detailed evaluation to look for the common and not so common causes of abnormal weight gain.

    It feels as if I have tried every weight loss trick known to man. I am currently logging my foods, and exercising 10+ hours a week, but seem to be stuck at the same weight, and at times even gaining. I am not extremely over weight, nor am I out of shape. I actually only aspire to lose 20 pounds. i run as a hobby and do strength training 3 days a week. it is a major goal of mine to achieve a flat stomach and an overall lean physique.
    Do you think your clinic can assist me in achieving my goals? If so please send additional information.
    Thank you, and I look forward to hearing back from you soon.

    I had cushings disease when I was 36 and a reoccurrence at 38. I am now 53. I have never been able to lose the 50+ lbs I gained with that disease. I have a feeling that my hormonal balance is so out of wack that I will never be able to she’d this weight. I just found this website. What do you think? Is there hope for me, or should I just accept this for the rest of my life? I am open to traveling from Kansas if there is any hope! Please advise!

    I am hypothyroid, I live in Poland at the moment and I cannot find an English speaking Endo here. I would be very interested in doing this program with you. I have a GP who could order blood work etc Could we PLEASE try to set something up? I am so tired literally, of not being able to budge my weight, I really hate my body right now. Please tell me how we could work together.

    Thank you for your website, it at least gives me hope for my problems. I’m 28-years-old, have had type 1 diabetes since age 5 and hypothyroidism since age 14. In November 2006, I went from 130lbs to 194lbs in January 2007. The weight gain was a mystery, and each endocrinologist I visit blames my diet and exercise, even though I exercise 10-14 hours per week and rarely eat more than 1500 calories per day. By January 2011, I found out I have PCOS which may explain the weight gain, but even with birth control my testosterone is still elevated. I’ve asked my endocrinologist for more help, perhaps metformin or an anti-androgen, but he won’t prescribe anything because he assumes I overeat.

    The weight gain has caused psychological and physical stress, but most importantly, the increase in testosterone lowered my voice which has hurt me as an opera singer. I’m tired of being blamed for eating habits I do not possess. I currently weigh 178lbs, and nothing I do helps me lose weight. I just want my back to stop aching and to be able to sing again. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, but am willing to travel to Atlanta if you accept my insurance. I know this is a long shot, but if you can offer an help or advice, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thank you!

    I have just seen your website where you suggest to look at people, how they have looked before the program and after. Some of them look more than amazing! I can’t believe my eyes. Specially the woman, who’s lost 190 pounds…
