Owned and operated by Dr. Ashley Lucas, PhD, RD, PHD Weight Loss and Nutrition offers healthy and sustainable weight loss. They make the overwhelming and daunting task of dropping weight feasible and supportive, understanding that weight gain isn’t your fault and that the body is much more complicated than calories in + out. 

That’s why PHD takes a truly different approach than most weight loss and nutrition programs. They look at each client as a whole person, evaluating the mental and emotional habits and behaviors that play into why we eat the way we eat.

From there, PHD’s team of experts guides clients to enter into their optimal weight in which they will experience a faster, more efficient metabolism and ultimately have the best chance of success in maintaining their weight loss. And with the program’s free-for-life maintenance program, 85% of clients who participate maintain their weight loss within 3 lbs.

How it works: 

PHD identifies each client’s optimal weight number based on accurate body composition analysis (which varies dramatically for each individual) — not based on a generic, random “goal weight.”

The reason why most people experience the frustrating “yoyo” phenomenon is because they only let go of a portion of their excess fat weight. That excess fat weight that we carry is active — secreting hormones that make us hungry, make us crave, slow our metabolism + make us not want to move. That’s why PHD encourages clients to participate in their program when they are 100% committed to fully collapsing the fat mass.

But when clients are bought in, it works. PHD is based on science, 15+ years of education and training in nutrition and weight management, and clinical experience working with thousands of clients.
