    I am extremely happy with Dr. Salter. She takes into consideration more than the way you look or the amount of weight you carry. She also takes into consideration the amount of baggage you're carrying around with you. Glad I hung in there with her.

    Dr. Salter's Care Philosophy

    Why Weight, LLC offers proven rapid weight reduction and non-surgical, painless directed fat cell elimination with the FDA approved Verju Green Laser under the direct supervision of one of 12 Bariatric Board Certified (ABOM) physicians in Colorado, Debra Salter, M.D. She and her team strive to provide personalized and professional, care using the standards of ABOM.

    Treatments directed at the cause as well as the problem help assure weight loss is sustainable and health is improved.

    Patients are empowered and educated with the assistance of body composition measurements to assure fat, not muscle is being lost, and with tests for resting metabolic rate to check calorie burning when appropriate.

    For patients with inflammatory issues (asthma, IBS, colitis, psoriasis, rheumatologic and connective tissue diseases) or with significant difficulty losing weight the ALCAT sensitivities blood testing is available along with nutritional counseling and dietary management after testing is completed.

    Dr. Salter says...

    Debra Salter, M.D. is board certified by the American Bariatric and Obesity Medicine Society(ABOM), as well as the American Academy of Family Practice (AAFP).  With over 30 years of experience,she is dedicated to treating the whole patient.  Health and wellness are a priority and she has treated overweight patients with great success.  Her philosophy about weight is: "There is a reason we gain and a reason we hold weight where we do."  In addition, though all people are basically similar, each is an individual and needs to be treated as such.  She does not use a one size fits all approach to her treatment plan.  Instead, she tailors each program to the individual, adjusting meal plans, medications, and motivational techniques to best fit the lifestyle and needs of the patient.  This, she believes is the key to her success.  Dr. Salter says:

    "I hear over and over from my patients, "This is easy!" and "I could live like this!" which is of course my priority. We can all lose weight on various programs . . . that is not the issue.  It breaks my heart to see patients who have lost hundreds of pounds only to put them back on.  The reason, I believe, is that we never addressed why they put the weight on in the first place.  Once we get to the metabolic, physical, and emotional reasons, we can begin to fix the problem once and for all.  No more yo-yo dieting which destroys the metabolism and adds plaque to the linings of the arteries. I want my patients to learn to read their bodies and understand why they want to eat what they do. Then they can use the skills and medicationss to take control rather than react, and can conquer rather than submit to weight gain once and for all."

    Dr. Salter and her Why Weight team have been able to repeatedly demonstrate that weight can be lost, and that loss can be sustained, while energy and health are restored, rather than robbing the body of nutrients. We at Why Weight, LLC hope you will join us in your quest for health and wellness, and if you need to lose weight, that you will let us help.

    Dr. Salter says...

    Why Weight, LLC is proud to be equipped with one of the limited Verju Green Laser/Diode Systems in Colorado.  

    With the introduction of the Verjú laser system, we are able to provide a safe, painless and non-surgical option for directed fat elimination. The laser provides inch reduction as well as contouring with results which can be seen in a matter of weeks. This is different from the previous red laser treatments, as the green diodes (532nm wavelength) used in the Verjú "opens" fat cells to safely release fat into the tissues so fat can be removed once and for all.  The Verju reduces the number of fat cells in the body non-surgically. 

    Call today for more information or a tour of the Verju Laser @ (303)972-9138.

    Our caring staff at Why Weight, LLC is available to assist you in making this very personal decision, and answer your questions.  We would love to help you with your weight loss journey and health pursuits, so Why Weight?.
