ABOUT US

California Weight Loss was developed by Mahfouz Michael, M.D. founder and President of Clinica Medica San Miguel clinics, the largest health provider in the Hispanic community in Los Angeles, CA. During the more than 35 years of treating patients for a variety of weight induced illnesses Dr. Michael became concerned about the growing epidemic of diabetes and high blood pressure, both caused by obesity. Dr. Michael assembled a group of professionals at California Weight Loss to address these problems.

Dr. Michael realized that to really attack obesity problems required a life-style change delivered through a multi-disciplined program including classes in nutrition, psychology of addiction, exercise client counseling supported by food specially developed to support the weight loss regimen. A major requirement of the food was that it not only be filling but taste delicious.

The team at California brought together all of the facets of Dr. Michael’s program into the most complete and effective weight loss program available today. Clients are encouraged to use all of the elements of the program for a safe, effective, heart-healthy program with no pills, no surgery and no injections.

The California Weight Loss program has been a resounding success with clients who lose weight and feel good doing it.

California Weight Loss is committed to providing the best weight loss experience available and to continually improving it.

Health is our business – weight loss is the way to ensure it.
