up obese in an obese family with multiple complications brought by
their condition. He knew he wanted to be a doctor early on to find
the cure to his family’s complications and their struggle with
weight. He went through college, medical school, and residency; and
consistently gained pounds every year. His life changed when one
day, he accepted his wife’s challenge to finally lose the weight so
that he can better help his patients to get off medication and
start their weight loss journey the healthy way.

150lbs and reclaimed his health for himself and his family by

give to your body. If you give it the right input and food, you’re
gonna get the right output.”
