Dr. Frank Anderson enjoyed a successful 17-year career as a chiropractor prior to establishing Advanced Weight Loss Centers. During that time, he consulted with thousands of patients who were suffering from a wide variety of musculoskeletal issues, including pinched nerves, neck and back pain, headaches, carpal tunnel syndrome, and sciatica. Although his many years of experience enabled him to effectively help people manage these musculoskeletal problems with ease, he did not feel fulfilled. He knew that most of their other, more serious health problems, including heart disease, high cholesterol, and diabetes, were causally-related to their food choices and excess weight.
After much thought, he decided that he could affect more significant change in peoples’ lives by helping them to lose weight. He knew this would be no easy task and that he would need to devote more time to helping these people than would be possible while running a successful chiropractic practice. After several years of research and independent study of obesity and weight management, he established Advanced Weight Loss Centers and gave up his chiropractic practice.
Dr. Anderson was able to observe several “gaps” in many of today’s weight loss programs. He witnessed that most people who lost weight with other, more traditional weight loss plans would eventually regain all of their lost weight. He knew that if he was going to make a lasting change in peoples’ lives and help them lose their unwanted fat for the long-term, he would need to provide a program that was different than all the rest. That’s why many of the services offered at Advanced Weight Loss Centers can not be found anywhere else in the industry.
Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, Dr. Anderson and the staff provide a customized, non-medical approach to long-term weight loss. In addition to targeting areas of unwanted fat with painless, cutting-edge technology, Dr. Anderson also uses state-of-the-art testing to determine the specific foods that may be responsible for slowing down your metabolism and causing your weight gain. With a focus on whole food nutrition, including organic fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and adequate protein, Dr. Anderson’s program teaches you the value of nutrient-dense whole foods and how they aid in long-term weight management. Perhaps the most important aspects of Dr. Anderson’s unique program, however, is his Behavior Reconditioning technology which helps to eliminate food cravings and emotional eating, while helping you avoid the overweight behaviors of the past. Dr. Anderson firmly believes that any weight loss program that fails to address the behavioral component of your weight problem is destined for failure!
Dr. Anderson lives in Long Island with his beautiful wife, Kristin, and his two wonderful children, Ryan and Hailey.
