Help! I Really Need to Lose Weight


For most people, long-term weight-loss success is elusive, and it isn’t for lack of trying. Each year, 45 million Americans attempt to lose weight through dieting. 

The thing is, most do-it-yourself diets fail to provide lasting weight loss, and it isn’t your fault. Most people who do lose weight with a DIY diet can expect to regain the weight -- and then some -- over the course of the next few years.

If you’re struggling to lose weight and keep it off, there is hope. Board-certified internal medicine and primary care physician Jonathan Leibowitz, MD can help you achieve long-term weight loss with an individualized, medically supervised weight-loss program.

Dr. Leibowitz can jumpstart your weight loss quickly and safely with programs such as Optifast®. These calorie-controlled programs stimulate weight loss while you receive the support necessary to make lasting changes that help you keep the weight off.

The support to succeed

With Dr. Leibowitz’s medical weight-loss program, patients get the support they need every step of the way to make lasting changes. Medically-supervised diets involve more than cutting back on calories. We recommend that patients attend weekly support sessions to monitor progress, navigate obstacles, and stay motivated.

Expert guidance

There’s no substitute for guidance from a medical professional and weight-loss specialist. With Dr. Leibowitz and our team on your side, you’ll receive nutrition advice as well as guidance in identifying and changing behaviors and thoughts that have the potential to sabotage your progress.
