    Our entire approach to weight management is wrong.  Eat less, move more rarely works for anyone long-term.  Science tells us that metabolic dysregulation is the problem – not simply excess calories.  Focusing on personal responsibility and motivation and shaming people for their inability to execute these skills is irrational and unscientific.  Obesity is the only disease that we treat using math – and it isn’t working.  It’s time to change this.  Let us help you.

    Improve Your Health

    Obesity is a chronic, progressive, deadly disease.  Treating obesity is difficult.  Patients deserve to be treated by a team practicing solid, evidence-based medicine.  At Heartland Weight Loss, we are committed to providing effective, evidence-based therapies for patients affected by excess weight. Let us help you gain control over your health and weight – for good!

    Save Money

    Eating highly processed foods is more expensive day-to-day than cooking healthy meals at home.  Furthermore, these foods eventually result in poor health – which means you end up spending additional money on medications and medical visits that could have been prevented.   You work hard for your money.  You deserve the opportunity to spend that money on things that truly improve your life!  Think what you could do with that extra money – perhaps a long, luxurious beach vacation…

    There’s no way that 2/3 of Americans are lazy and undisciplined when it comes to their weight and eating habits. When one hundred kids take a math test and over 2/3 of them fail the test, the problem isn’t the kids – it’s what they were taught prior to being given the test!  When we approach weight loss with calorie restriction, most of us are going to fail. The human body is not a simple math problem.  Learn what you need to pass the test.


    Here’s how to change your life…


    Step 1:  Request an Appointment:

      Step 2:  Become a patient and start learning the truth.  Create a healthy eating plan that works within your budget and your tastes that improves your health and weight

      Step 3:  Experience the freedom that comes from no longer being hostage to food!

      How are we different?

      Our programs were created by Courtney Younglove, M.D., a physician board-certified in Obesity Medicine and an active member of the Obesity Medicine Association.  All programs are based upon the latest medical science and nutrition studies.  As part of our comprehensive approach, we drive sustainable results using evidence-based medicine.  We provide ongoing medical supervision, watch vital signs and body composition, order and interpret laboratory tests as needed and provide and adjust medications as required. We are in network with all major commercial insurance companies.
