Effective & Permanent Weight Loss
Do you struggle with weight loss? Has your doctor warned you that your high blood pressure or diabetes is the result of excess body mass? Perhaps you tired various diets only to experience initial weight loss followed by plateaus and relapse. You are not alone. Millions of Americans struggle with overeating or other unhealthy behaviors that lead to weight gain.
My name is Dr. Delane Vaughn, and I’ve been in your shoes. Like you, I’ve struggled with uncontrolled eating and steady weight gain. To gain control over my own addiction to food, I hired a life coach who helped me gain “freedom from food” by addressing the underlying reasons for my eating. My life coach was so influential in improving my life, I became a life coach myself. Now I use my medical degree and life coaching techniques to help clients achieve their wellness goals.
Effective and permanent weight lose requires addressing the underlying thoughts and emotions, which drive our actions and inevitably our results. Like most doctors, I started my career telling patients to make better life choices. I would say, “lose weight and follow-up in six months.” Then, I’d act shocked when they were unsuccessful. While I wanted my patients to be healthy, I was operating in a system of “disease care” not health and wellness care. Health and wellness is a completely different model that takes more time than a 15-minute doctor visit. Proactive and effective health care requires addressing the thoughts, which produce emotions and the resulting patterns of behavior. Only by altering these patterns of behavior are we able to produce effective and permanent improvements in health and well-being.
Today, as a doctor and life coach, I’m finally fulfilling my purpose of helping people achieve a better quality of life through preventive health.
