About Us


 

Tried everything? Hate dieting?

WE'VE BEEN THERE, TOO.

 

Weight loss is a journey — and it’s different for each of us.

THAT'S WHY WE SUPPORT YOU WITH WHATEVER HELP YOU NEED, EVERY STEP OF THE WAY.

 

At GFM, we know exactly what the weight loss journey can be like. We’ve been right where you are: preparing to take that first step, attempting to distinguish between fad diets and facts, and struggling to determine what will actually work for you.

The truth is, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to weight loss. Bodies all work differently, and the causes of weight gain can be complex. Psychology comes into play, as do hormones, metabolism, genetics, and lifestyle choices. Often times, those of us who struggle with weight loss aren’t just struggling with our own habits, but also the families and friends who influence us every step of the way.

At GFM, we don’t judge, assume, or shame. We know that real change comes from being seen, heard, and loved. When you develop a relationship with a physician who truly knows and cares about what you are struggling with, lifestyle change is possible. We can’t wait to see what your future holds!
