Doctors Joseph and Deborah Lozito created The Institute for Medical Weight Loss and Nutrition in an effort to curtail the nation's growing obesity epidemic. The two pool their 45 years of combined medical experience with the expertise of CBS 2 News–featured nutritionist Jennifer Burns Katafigiotis to develop customized weight-loss programs. The institute's weight-loss plans include a combination of meticulous medical analysis, hours-long tickle-fights, and meal replacements. The meal replacements have been shown to help participants adjust to healthier portion sizes and shed pounds.
