Dr. Ronald T. Weiland doesn’t “believe in fad diets,” as he notes on his website. Rather, he trusts in simple mathematics: fewer ingested calories plus more burned calories equals weight loss. At Ameri-Cal Weight Clinic, he and his staff put this equation into practice during comprehensive weight-loss programs that rely on healthful foods, aerobic exercise, and prescribed appetite suppressants. This mix of support, services, and tools is readily available at eight clinic locations throughout the Bay Area and one that only appears on leap years.
