Weight Loss

Our goal is to help patients obtain a healthy weight which positively affects one’s life.

Message from Dr. Shepherd:
I believe that being a family practice doctor is more than just taking care of a patient when they are sick. It is about taking care of a patient as a "whole person." Part of this includes preventative medicine but truly my goal is to help patients extend and enhance the quality of their lives. One of the areas that makes a large impact on an individual’s quality of life is weight loss.

Our goal is to help patients obtain a healthy weight which positively affects one’s life. Achieving such goals has allowed numerous patients come off long-term medications in addition to decreasing their risk of diabetes, increasing their life span, decreasing their risk of heart disease, reducing fatigue, improving sleep and re-energizing them.

We believe in YOU and want to partner with you in your weight loss journey.

I started on Shepherd Healthcare’s weight loss program in February of 2013 and at that time I weighed 326 pounds and was a borderline diabetic. On December 16, 2013 I weigh 219 pounds and I have officially lost 107 pounds, going from a 44 inch waist down to a 36 inch waist. I still have 25 pounds to lose to get to my original weight loss goal and I should accomplish that in the first 3 months of the New Year. My goal when accomplished will be 132 pounds lost and a 34 inch waist, never to see the 200’s again! Dr. Shepherd makes the program very easy to follow and if something isn’t working, he is always willing to try something different to get the best results for you. If you want to be in the best shape of your life and more importantly feel great, please take a look at Dr. Shepherd’s weight loss program.

Roy, Age 55

I am a 55 year woman who has done up and down dieting my whole life. I started the Shepherd Healthcare weight loss program with Dr. Shepherd on Feb. 21, 2013 weighing in at 225 pounds, wearing a tight size 18. On Oct.15, 2013 I reached my goal weight of 160 pounds and am now wearing a size 8. I lost 65 lbs in 8 months and I feel great! Before, I had trouble sleeping but now I can sleep comfortably. I also was borderline diabetic and now my sugars are normal. Following Dr. Shepherd’s recommended low carb diet is not a diet for us anymore - this is the way we eat. We know what going back to the old way we ate will do, so now we are staying with a Low Carb lifestyle and loving our new healthy bodies. I would recommend to anyone that needs to get in better shape to try this program with Dr. Shepherd - you won't be disappointed.

Dr. Shepherd is the first doctor who ever straight up asked me if I wanted to lose weight. Of course I wanted to lose weight, but I just knew I couldn't. Dr. Shepherd did not respond to that, he just said "I know you can do it." I was intrigued so I decided I would try to follow his low carb diet. I was surprised at how easy it had been, and how great I felt! However, very early on I hit a plateau that I was not happy about. I had to figure out why and I realized I was not being careful with my calories so made the necessary adjustments. I also started walking on a treadmill and I could not believe how much energy working out gave me!! Losing weight is no secret - eat healthy, exercise, and don’t give up. Don't do the diet and weight loss program for anyone but yourself! I now love how I look and feel even though I have about 25 more lbs to lose. I never thought I would back like this again and it's absolutely wonderful! I started the Shepherd Healthcare weight loss program at 239 lbs and in the last 10 months have lost 130 lbs!
