The real way to get thin and stay thin is to learn how not to eat when you don’t need to. This is the core of the Healthy Steps Program.

Our Mission

We believe that rapid weight loss is possible and desirable.

We believe behavior modification instruction and medication supervised by medical professionals is the best combination for losing weight.

We believe that there is no substitute for experience. Our approach is based on 50 years of clinical experience with medical weight loss.

The truth is that eating less is the only effective way to lose weight.

What Makes Us Unique?

The healthy Steps approach to weight loss

Knowing when to eat may sound intuitive, even effortless, and yet the majority of us get it wrong. In reality, we all eat for many reasons not related to needing food for energy.

And that’s how we end up gaining weight.  

The cause of our weight problem is eating too much. No secrets, no technical medical terms necessary, it’s as straightforward as that.

To lose weight, you must learn to eat only when you are hungry.

This is the essence of the Healthy Steps program.

Healthy Steps will enable you to lose weight by teaching you to eat only when you are hungry.

Healthy Steps relies on a combination of behavior modification instruction and FDA-approved medication to teach you to eat only when hungry. You will learn to avoid non-hunger eating, portion control and methods for making healthier choices. Our team of experienced medical supervisors and staff will provide guidance every step of the way.

So are you ready to say goodbye to those diet foods and exercise regiments? Ready to eat what you want and still lose weight? By joining Healthy Steps, we guarantee that you will lose weight and learn tools to sustain your weight loss!


Though everyone loses weight at their own pace, losing between 15 and 30 pounds in the first month is common!
