What is Obesity Medicine? Obesity Medicine is the field of medicine dedicated to the care of patients who are overweight and obese.

Board certified obesity medicine specialists are clinical experts in weight loss and weight management.
Dr. Shah is passionate about teaching people how food is at the cornerstone of our health. After treating thousands of patients in hospitals she realized that most people didn’t have the basic foundational knowledge to take care of their health. Medications are simply a band-aide to our problems, not the cure. She teaches people that:
The cure (and the problem) lies in our food.
Our food choices can create chronic disease or prevent and reverse them. She teaches people that food is medicine – we can reverse many medical diseases like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol problems by losing weight and/or understanding how food impacts our health.

WE DON’T CATCH DISEASE, WE CREATE THEM BY THE WAY WE EAT AND LIVE.
“I didn’t grow with a very good and healthy relationship with food. I always struggled with my weight and unhealthy eating habits. I hit plenty of walls to lose weight that left me feeling stressed and craved and tired all day long. I had major setbacks and a handful of failures. Which is the long way of saying when it comes to helping you find the best way of getting a healthy lifestyle in your own busy world, I know what I’m talking about because I’ve been there and done it… and with a kid, family, and job, you can imagine, I’ve done it the hard way.
My daughter is my biggest teacher, and I also believe, that eating right, staying healthy and wearing your life well is not only important because we want to be healthy, but also because it reflects what we are teaching our kids. They learn not what we teach them, but what they see us doing.
I am a very positive, happy person and truly grateful for what I have in my life.
I believe “Use what you have to get what you want”.”
