Our patients have the best intentions for self-care, nutrition, and weight control. But after delivering the news of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, obesity and related conditions at appointment after appointment, we knew that good intentions weren’t enough to change a person’s health outlook. And we couldn’t let one more patient leave the exam room without options.
So we teamed up with a local expert in nutrition, metabolism and exercise, and designed a medically supervised weight loss program that patients can subscribe to, eight weeks at a time.* Patients who are looking to manage their weight, improve their nutrition, and jump-start a healthy lifestyle will find the direction and support they need to implement an effective program that’s right for their body needs. Professional expertise will guide and amplify regular activity and healthy eating for weight loss. And with this powerful combination, we’ll help more patients make real, proactive progress.

An exciting new partnership of
Christine Meyer, MD and Associates
and Kathleen Ruggeri
"This has been a very effective program for me. In 2 ½ months I’ve lost nearly 25 pounds and this included the holiday season! My body fat is down and muscle mass is up. Kathleen came up with an approach for us that took into account our food and workout preferences. The regular visits to discuss progress and make adjustments if needed included a weigh-in and created a high level of accountability that I found very motivating. The balanced focus on diet and activity makes a lot of sense to me and I think is what is necessary to sustain the healthier life style over time. Finally, it was also important to me that my primary care physician was involved so I was delighted that this program and Kathleen are a part of Christine Meyer’s practice."

"Kathleen is a friend, mentor and nutrition coach who has put me back on track on my healthy journey. She came highly recommended by my physician to help me understand what was happening to my menopausal body and take corrective measures to fix my health. She was a patient listener who devised an 8-week plan accommodating my dietary restrictions. She educated me with various articles on health, how to understand ingredients and the way they function in a simple meal, how they would affect my metabolism, and hence have an impact on my health. She helped me with delicious recipes that were rich in protein and low in carbohydrates. I saw quick results after the first week. I started losing weight pound by pound but more importantly, I noticed an increase in my muscle mass. I struggled with gaining muscle prior to meeting Kathleen. Meeting with her every week was an exciting and important step in the right direction for me, both physically and mentally. She taught me to listen to my body and feed it accordingly. I feel an increase of energy in my day to day activities and my clothes fit very well. I am grateful for the supportive environment that Kathleen provided in order for me to undergo this transformation, which allows me enjoy a healthier and happier life."
MAHA R. • PRO+ACTIVE PATIENT
“I am so thankful to Kathleen Ruggeri and Dr. Meyer for starting this Pro+Active program. It has really worked wonders for me. With the variety of food options and exercise program that was tailored to me, I have not only lost 25 pounds in 4 months, but my total cholesterol dropped from 203 to 167! I have so much more energy and just feel so much better!! Kathleen is a terrific coach who genuinely cares for her clients. She makes it fun and she makes you feel like you “can” and you “will” succeed if you are dedicated to changing your health and your life for the better!”
