Why I do what I do 

Hi, I'm Sasha! Obesity Doctor and Weight Loss Coach. I founded Best Weight and the High Metabolic Clinic because I believe women should be empowered to manage their weight and health from a place of confidence, love and real science.

I've seen too many women shamed from diet culture, believing they are a failure for not being able to keep the weight off. I've witnessed women not engaging in their lives because they're afraid to take photos or wear a bathing suit. And that makes me sad!

I am a firm believer that every woman has extraordinary potential, and just needs the right tools and support to fulfill her purpose. Weight, poor health and self-hatred should not get in the way of that.

That's why I do what I do. To empower women. To give them effective tools based on medical research, physiology and psychology to live their healthiest lives. So they can thrive, then their families can thrive, and their communities can thrive. It's my small way to make our world a better place and see all of us fulfill our God-given purpose.

I'd love for you to join me

Now the background story

Before I was successful at empowering women to manage their mindset and optimize health, I was just another doctor touting the “eat less, exercise more” prescription. I advised patients to count their calories. Choose low fat foods. Just don’t eat so much. The only problem was - it wasn’t working. So like many of my colleagues, I thought “well, these patients just aren’t compliant. They’re not motivated enough.” Man, was I wrong.

The medical field is waking up to understand that weight and appetite regulation are far more complex than we used to think. New understanding of the physiology and psychology has revolutionized our approach to treating obesity and metabolic diseases. It’s not a willpower issue, it’s how our brain interacts with our food environment to drive hunger and desire, it's hormones and neurotransmitters, it's negative self-talk produced by a diet industry that keeps saying "just try harder!" All of this has kept women stuck in the never-ending cycle of yo-yo dieting, “falling off the wagon” and frustration.

As a Physician and Life Coach, my practice transformed when I started teaching clients to heal their relationship with food and their bodies, make empowered choices leading to healthy habits, and harness the power of mindset. When a healthy mindset leading to healthy habits is combined with appropriate medical care, sustainable, empowered weight loss is possible.
