Our Story

We are medical professionals working with you to lose weight, overcome hunger and cravings and helping you to keep weight off long term…

As doctors who have treated patients with complex medical problems for many years, we know that many conditions are improved by weight loss.

And because we like to help our patients to achieve their best health possible, we would often provide basic dietary and exercise advice in the hope that it would help our patients lose weight…

But it didn’t work!

The fault was not with our patients – it was with us!

We failed to understand what is driving weight gain and why it is so hard for many of us to lose weight and even harder to keep it off long term.

This set us on a quest for knowledge to determine how to best help our patients. We have researched the evidence around how body weight is regulated, how genetic factors determine our set point of weight, how hormonal systems like to tightly regulate our weight and protect us against weight loss and how we can overcome these systems in order to help keep you at a healthier weight for life.

We have also shared in the personal struggles of our patients who have always battled with weight or who have been able to lose their weight but always seem to regain it again. We want an effective solution just as much as they do.

This has resulted in the creation of our Alevia Medical Weight Loss program and the services that we can bring you today.
