Why do only 20% of people who lose weight keep off those extra pounds successfully? We are Jay and Janice, living proof of the 20% success group, and we can answer that question.  You can lose the weight and you can keep it off by ending a shame-ridden relationship with food and with yourself.  Two years ago, we met as patient and doctor. Today, we are collaborators, sharing our personal experiences in combination with science-based knowledge. Janice has maintained a 30-pound weight loss for four years; and for the past three years, Jay has kept off the 150 pounds she lost. Our achievements have been driven by severing the relationship between food and shame. Here’s our question for you: aren’t you tired of feeling bad about yourself?
