Dr. David Richardson
- Has over 35 years of experience in physician-supervised weight loss.
- His mission statemnt, Permanent Weight Loss: is his only focus for the pateient. This mission philosphy begins on Day 1, the initial office visit.
- He specializes in Motivational Psychology for continued weight loss with emphasis on "Finishing the race," your desired weight. This program Think Thin/Fight Fat is a concept that helps you make the lifestyle changes necessary for permanent weight loss.
- The diet plan has an additional benefit of lowering your cholesterol and is effective in treatment and the prevention of diabetes.
The following information provided for Dr. Richardson is to help any pateient get the proper start with their weight loss program.
- Avoid weight loss goal programs that promote "how much, how fast." Typically, these programs focus on "very low caloric" diet plans, using meal replacement. Studies using this  diet concept demonstrate impressive short-term results from the 1st to the 6th month. However, the results of the 7th through the 12th month demonstrate rapid weight gain at a rate that is roughly equal to the rate of the weight loss. Nearly all these patients returned to their baseline weight at the end of the 12th month.
- Avoid programs that have high front-end costs with routine lab tests, EKG and meal replacements. They usually create financial obligations with monthly drafts on your checking account. Consult with your family physican or Dr. Richardson about the need for lab tests and EKG to get his/her opinion and advice.
- Avoid weight loss programs that offer monthly vitamin B-12 and "lipotropic" injections due to the accumulative risk for serious adverse effects or allergic reactions. These injections are not FDA approved for weight loss. It is important for you to know that B12 injections cause weight gain when given on a monthly basis.
- There is no "fat burner" using medication, vitamins, or minerals. Exercise is our only way to raise metabolism.
