: having little weight : lacking apparent gravitational pull
WeightlessMD was founded in 2013 as a source for better health information.
I am a family physician in Minnesota who cares most about preventing disease. I work day in and day out with patients in the healthcare trenches. The more I practice medicine the more I notice the same challenges patients face . . . to lose weight and prevent diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
Everyone wants to be free from the burden of disease.
WeightlessMD was created to lift that burden.
The mission of WeightlessMD is to provide a resource for people to consume better health information around the topics of eliminating obesity as well as preventing diabetes, heart disease and cancer.
The information is meant to be as evidenced-based as possible and yet personal, easily accessible and actionable for everyone.
We aim to provide loads of healthy content.
You will find occasional advertisements and affiliations with companies through affiliate links. This is not meant to be a conflict of interest or to bias the information, but to provide a means for more meaningful growth. Any reviews of products will come from real experience with the product and an honest review.
About the Author:
As a family physician my training is in the broad scope of medicine. Early on, I developed an interest in preventative care. When I counsel patients about how to eat better and exercise more, I feel most in my element. Possibly because I enjoy teaching or because I struggled myself with the same challenges and found very little helpful and evidenced-based information to guide me. By providing good information to patients about simple lifestyle habit changes, I have many times witnessed a light go on and bit of hope develop.
WeightlessMD is a place for me to continue to teach others about simple, effective, evidenced-based lifestyle changes and create great health content. My intentions are to be as helpful as possible and create meaningful and actionable steps for you . . . the reader.
You will also find several references to and contributions from my wife who has been an inspirational partner in our journey to better health for our family. She is a true super-mom and the reason our kids and I remain healthy.
