In the past 40 years, thousands of patients have lost weight with Healthy Steps. Our medically supervised, integrated program was developed by renowned industry pioneer Dr. Irving Penn, to combine behavior modification with medication and personalized coaching — for clinically-proven and sustainable results.

What are the Healthy Steps?

The program is simple. With Healthy Steps, you’ll learn not just what to eat, but how. We’ll help you create healthy eating habits, discover how to control false cravings and emotional triggers, and support you with safe, clinically-proven prescription plans to assist you in achieving your weight loss goals. As one of the first clinics to adopt intermittent fasting as a basic strategy for weight loss, we take an innovative approach that blends the latest science with proven methods. Today, our programs incorporate a variety of prescription medications, lipotropic injections, medical matcha, Fibermax, and other natural products to help patients lose weight.
While you can choose from a range of options to suit your needs, we recommend our six-month programs for best results. Healthy Steps patients who adhere to the protocols may experience weight loss on an average of 20-30 pounds within six months.

Backed by science since 1980

Originally known as “The Penn Program,” the Healthy Steps Program for Weight Management was developed by Dr. Irving Penn, a respected trailblazer in the field of medical weight loss. Over the course of his more than 50-year career, Dr. Penn successfully treated tens of thousands of patients who sought to lose weight and embrace a healthier lifestyle. His groundbreaking combination of medication and behavior modification has formed the basis of the Healthy Steps weight loss program. Since Dr. Penn’s retirement, the Healthy Steps team has continued to evolve and expand our program under the supervision of his son, Dr. Joshua Penn.
