Weight loss testimonials
Living healthy and feeling good about the way I look are such great ways to start and go through my day that I can’t think of anything better. All my positives are enhanced and any negatives don’t seem as bad because at my center I am healthy, vibrant, energetic, and able to attract goodness. Every day is filled with gratitude that I have emerged from this process – dare I say it? Victorious! – D.M.
My doctor recommended that I go for a sleep study and I found I had obstructive sleep apnea. I got a CPAP machine and a few months later, I still wasn’t feeling good, so Dr. Tumpati recommended I try to lose weight. Under his supervision, I started my journey on June 16, 2015 and I went on the Medication “Contrave” and had no side effects. Within 10 days to 2 weeks I started feeling better already. I can walk an hour without stopping which would never have happened before, and I can climb steps. I’m up to 200 stairs per day. My wife asked me to stop using my machine and told me that I am not snoring anymore. I stopped taking my high blood pressure medicine.
I have more energy and to date, with the help of Dr. Tumpati and Laura, 9 months later, I am down 75 pounds and have lost 10 inches in my waist and 13 inches in my hips. I feel so good, I’ve decided to work an extra two years (I’m almost 65).

I’ve been going to Dr. Tumpati at the King of Prussia location for about 9 months and have lost 150 pounds*. I was at a point where my weight was affecting my life and health, ignoring it was no longer an option. I wanted to lose weight safely, but effectively, yet most people said it was impossible. It was time to hire a professional.
Dr. Tumpati and staff have been great explaining every step of the process and making sure I stay on track. The accountability and constant encouragement have been key parts of my success, as well as the knowledge that I was following a plan that would work and had actual medical science to back it. I am not finished losing yet, but as compared to 9 months ago, I know I’m already healthier, now’s its just finishing the journey. This path isn’t easy but if you’ve had enough of your weight being an impact on your health and life, considering getting help like Dr. Tumpati and his staff. It will make it easier.

So far I have lost 42 pounds* with 18 to go before my youngest daughter’s 21st birthday trip to Hawaii. Doctor Tumpati is very encouraging and kind. Laura is very helpful, she is there to work with you so you succeed. She can be reached by phone for appointment changes or if you run out of food. The doctor and staff become your friends.
There are some medications involved but the doctor is flexible and helpful if changes are needed or a medication needs to be discontinued or changed.
I have tried every diet available. Some were successful at first, but then they all failed. I was severely over weight, which was dangerous to my health. I met doctor Tumpati by chance. When he told me he was a diet doctor I told him I would be visiting him soon. The doctor is very kind, and patient. He takes blood pressure and body measurements every visit besides your weight.
Dr. Tumpati makes each person feel special. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is serious about not only losing weight but improving their overall health , gaining knowledge about their bodies and nutrition and developing a healthier lifestyle. – Patricia, verified weight loss patient on Patient Fusion *

My appt with Dr Tumpati was great he asked me questions about the problems that I’ve been having and after I answered him we discussed it. He was very professional but very down to earth as well. I will definitely be seeing him in the future. And his secretery/nurse Laura has been excellent as well there was a problem getting a medication filled it had to be pre-authorized and she made many phone calls to make sure that I was able to get the medication filled!!! So my overall experience at this office was excellent!!!! – David T.*

Dr. Tumpati and staff were very courteous. The doctor took time to explain my condition, the methods to treat it, and his recommendation for treatment in my particular case. I was not rushed in and out in 5 minutes as with many other doctors. I would recommend Dr. Tumpati to others – Verified patient.*
Patricia's Amazing weight loss* journey - 165 units of Insulin a day to zero units of Insulin in 4 months*.
Patricia has type 2 diabetes taking 165 units of insulin a day before starting the W8MD Medical Weight Loss Centers of America’s non-surgical weight loss program.
After losing about 50 lbs, she came off insulin completely to the complete disbelief even by her own endocrinology doctor.*
What causes type 2 diabetes?
The root cause of type 2 diabetes is insulin resistance! As insulin resistance means the body has to fight harder and produce more insulin, and since insulin is a very anabolic hormone, this explains weight gain even in those that do not have diabetes.
Can I be insulin resistant even though I do not have diabetes?
It is estimated that up to 71 percent of the population in the United States has some degree of insulin resistance although only 11 percent have full blown diabetes. In fact, diabetes takes up to 20 years to present and most people just have compensatory stage or prediabetes. If you have excess belly or upper body weight, you may be insulin resistant!
Can insulin resistance explain why I gain weight in the tummy?
Yes. This insulin resistance leads to compensatory increase in the anabolic hormone called insulin leading to a lot of weight gain in the belly and upper part of the body.
Why do I crave certain foods?
Insulin resistance also leads to cravings for starchy food leading weight gain!
