Countless patients visit our office in Center City, Philadelphia discouraged by their personal weight loss struggles. “Why can’t I lose weight?” they ask. “I eat a healthy diet and I’m in the gym all the time. I’ve tried so many diets – Paleo, Low-carb, Keto, Intermittent Fasting, cleanses and detoxes-and the weight always comes back. I’m tired of the yo-yo. Why do I continue to fail?”
The answer is simple: these diets, often paired with extreme exercise regiments, are not sustainable. They were created for mass markets or celebrities with infinite time or resources and impossible for the average person to recreate. In short, they set you up for failure before you even begin.
Why is our approach different? Dr. Seltzer designs sustainable, easy to follow, weight loss plans that will fit into your lifestyle. We’ll never ask you to change your lifestyle to fit into a plan.
Using an evidence-based approach to weight loss, Dr. Seltzer combines nutrition counseling with custom exercise design to create programs tailored to the individual. We complement our weight loss plans with a complete metabolic workup, medications, supplements, and lifestyle modifications that work in concert to optimize health and weight loss.
He begins by exploring WHY a person has gained weight – medical problems, poor sleep, lifestyle, family and work commitments, stress, anxiety, depression, body image issues, and emotional eating. They all play a part in weight gain and weight loss. Dr. Seltzer takes an in-depth look at each patient’s unique situation. There’s no shakes, fasting or cleanses. You eat what you like and what makes sense for YOU. Stop being a captive to the latest weight loss crazes, Body Mass Index, and exercises that don’t make sense for your body. Whether you need to lose 20 or 200 pounds, you’ll get the support to lose weight and the knowledge you need to keep it off for a lifetime.
