You are a Renegade - fearless and authentic.

Diets. Rules. Eat this. Don’t eat that. Refined sugar is “bad”. Wait, no it’s not. Consuming a diet of good fats is not so bad after all. Whom do you believe?

With all of the fancy marketing tactics used to grab your attention and convince you that there is a new, undiscovered way for weight loss to occur, is it any surprise that most of us have “diet-hopped” for the last several years hoping to discover the “one” that finally works?!  

I  know exactly how you feel.

I hopped from diet to diet for years and began my first "diet" about the age of 12.  (Can you relate?)  I kept the hope alive that I would some day find the "one" that works.  And, if anyone was going to find it - it was going to be me.  This burning hope that I possessed deep inside led to a passion for learning and for research in weight loss and nutrition.  

My research has focused on the lifestyle and psychological factors leading to obesity, the multiple and intricate causes of obesity, and how to work with those whose long-term goal is to live vivaciously while achieving a healthy weight.    

With a voracious appetite for education, I obtained my Doctorate of Medicine from the Autonomous University of Guadalajara School of Medicine. To round out my medical education, I also obtained my Masters in Applied Nutrition from Northeastern University.
