There are two major categories of weight loss programs out there.

First there is the beauty, glamor and sexuality crowd.  This is by far the most numerous and also the least successful.  Appealing to folks who are desperate to look hot at the beach in a new bikini, or who want to fit into a smaller size dress or pair of jeans is the focus of most magazines, television and especially weigh-loss products.

These folks are interested in getting rid of five to twenty pounds and usually want immediate results.

On the other hand is the health and well-being crowd.

That is the focus of this web site.

I myself have lost (as of this writing) over 160 lbs and still have just a little ways to go.  The methods I talk about are aimed at the people who need to lose 100 lbs or more.

You’ve surely heard of or even seen people who weigh 300, 400, 500 lbs or even more.  There are magazine and television stories about people so huge that they can’t leave the house or apartment where they live.  They must lie in bed.

That ain’t living, friends.

People like that really aren’t primarily worried about looking attractive to the opposite sex or fitting into the latest fashions.

These people are afraid for their lives.  And you don’t have to have 20 years of medical school to know that obese people just don’t live as long as “normal” people.

We are fighting for our lives.  We are whipped around by media who are commercial driven, and government agencies who are driven by special interest groups trying to get favorable legislation.

We are fed myths and outright lies.  The people we accept as gurus and authority figures are puppets who read off of cue cards.  They cannot tell us what we really need to know.

This program is for those who desperately want to live, who want a better quality of life, who want to be able to go places and do things that “normal” people do.

That is why I call my program Massive Weight Loss.

I wrote this particular paragraph in mid July — but you may be reading it months or even years later.

It doesn’t matter. Not one bit.

If you are determined that you must lose a bunch of weight, you can’t put it off. It won’t be any harder or any easier at any other time.

You know from years of frustration — there is no good time to start a diet.

There may be major holidays coming up, family gatherings, maybe a long-planned trip, or final school tests, or work deadlines.

There’s always something, isn’t there?

I realized that, of course. I knew that diets don’t work.  I knew that making drastic changes to your lifestyle could be impossible.  I knew that whatever your intentions, there would always be an excuse why you just couldn’t get started right now.

And we all know that tomorrow never comes.

That’s why I devised a common sense method that doesn’t require you to eliminate some foods and add others that you might not enjoy.  I know that if you are restricted in how much you can eat and what types of things you can eat, that your diet is doomed from the start.

I know that your job doesn’t stop, and your family obligations won’t go away, and there is enough stress and frustration in everyday life without getting involved in the “dreaded diet mode.”

So no matter what is going on — you can start immediately.  No waiting until first of the year, or your next birthday, or until your pain-in-the-neck relatives go home, or you have a two-week vacation.

You can do it now.


Some people have trouble dieting and exercising because of where they live — or at least they think they do.

The reality is that I did what most people — even doctors — consider impossible and I did it while traveling widely around the USA.

I’m originally from Chelsea, MA — a suburb of Boston.  I gained weight steadily throughout my life as I lived in France for seven years, went to specialty training in medical residencies and fellowships in such places as Cincinnati, Fargo, Minneapolis, Edmonton and Wichita.

I joined the Army and did my hitch in North Carolina.  When I got married, my husband and I lived in Oklahoma City and Palm Springs, California, Las Vegas and San Diego.

I easily gained weight no matter where I went.

But when I decided it was past the time when I should be losing weight, I found I could do it no matter how much I traveled.

You see, I’m a unique kind of professional, and earned my name The Renegade Doctor.  I don’t sit in an office or stand over an operating table.  I’m out getting to the people who need me, and I’ve got people who will travel to wherever I am so I can take care of them.

During the nearly three years I let my weight drop away, I spent time in San Diego, Los Angeles, Bakersfield, Anaheim, Fresno, and quite a few other towns I can’t take time to write down at the moment.

I took trips across the country, with airline food and hotel food and all kinds of choices facing me.

Yet I knew what I had to do and how to do it.  I could do it anywhere.

So please don’t fool yourself that you can’t lose massive amounts of weight unless you are strapped down to a hospital bed and fed liquid nutrients through a tube.

You can do it anywhere — if you know how.
