Dr. Kenneth Brooks has been practicing as an Interventional Cardiologist for over 30 years. During this time, he has treated thousands of patients with heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Through the years, he has advised his overweight patients that weight loss is a key component to improving overall cardiovascular health. At the same time, he has seen firsthand how difficult it is to succeed on a traditional “heart healthy diet.” This approach of eating very little and exercising very often simply is not feasible for many patients. It also often does not produce effective long-lasting results.
In 2012, Dr. Brooks started The Healthy Weigh Now program. Over the years, hundreds of clients have lost weight and improved their health. With weight loss, clients are often able to reduce or stop taking medications for conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes.
