Bend Oregon Weight Loss Specialists
Have you tried every diet and weight loss scheme, only to find that each one is really no different than the next in that they all leave you feeling unsatisfied and unsuccessful in reaching your weight loss goals? If this is the case, Dr. Kremer has implemented a Functional Medicine Based program to fit the unique needs of EVERY individual seeking healthy, lasting weight loss.
At Wellness Doctor, our weight loss programs are NOT based on a fad diet and don't include any magic pills or drastic calorie restrictions. Instead we start off by looking deeper into the underlying causes of weight gain such as gut health, inflammation, toxins, hormone dysfunction, etc.
Unlike most diets (which typically only focus on short-term goals), we help to educate and promote lasting weight loss that is easy to achieve and maintain. While Dr. Kremer and his wife Cassie stay up to date on current diet trends and regularly write about Paleo, Ketogenic, intermittent Fasting, Carb Cycling, Gluten Free and the Mediterranean Diet in Paleo Magazine, our ultimate goal is to help each patient make the necessary lifestyle changes to ensure the weight comes off easily and stays off effortlessly.
All of our programs are focused on teaching you how to properly fuel your body to eliminate food cravings and drastic energy fluctuations, while providing an individualized nutritional platform that you can easily follow for the rest of your life.
Our weight loss programs generally do not involve a specific diet but more of a lifestyle remodel. Unlike most diets which typically result in failure and frustration, our goal is to educate the general public on the basic foundation to a healthy lifestyle.
From a physicians stand-point, there is so much to look at and we just don't believe in a one-size-fits-all kind of program. Addressing gut health, food sensitivities, hormones, inflammatory markers, age, as well as family history must all be considered with dietary or lifestyle intervention and are often overlooked by most weight loss clinics and programs.
What to Expect

Labs are reviewed with Nutritionist for further dietary recommendations.
