"The Weight Just Started Falling Off. It Seemed Too Easy."
I found your program on Facebook back in April or May of 2020 and got serious with it right away. I was diagnosed with PCOS in my early 20’s and have struggled with weight since high school. I tried everything with some success but nothing lasting. I always gained

"Thank You Dr. Haver. Thanks For Helping Me Find Me."
I have been on the Galveston “Diet” since January 20th, 2020. I found it through Facebook and I was hesitant at first. Often when we reach “over 50”, we’ve tried our traditional methods for losing weight, counting calories, eating less, and upping our exercise, but all these methods I

I just wanted to take a moment to reach out and thank you for coming into my life when you did. I’m 44, perimenopausal, have Celiac disease, depression, chronic idiopathic urticaria, and to top it all off… excess weight. I was following the same “eat less, exercise more” that

MY husband (he has diabetes with oral meds only, but they’ve had to be increased way too much), and I have been on the Galveston Diet for precisely two months. He has lost 14 pounds. I have lost 13 pounds, AND…..he JUST got his A1C done this morning (the

"Could Not Get Off The Extra Belly Weight"
Girl, you have changed my life! I’ve never been obese but just could not get off the extra belly weight after my hysterectomy at 32 years old. I’m now 60 and feel better than I’ve ever felt about my body. (Although COVID almost did me in mentally and physically.

"I am down 80+ pounds and feel fabulous"
3 yrs ago, I had my “moment.” I had an “oh my” pregnancy at 40 and allowed myself to eat everything. I then convinced myself that I needed carbs in my life to maintain my milk supply. I then vowed that I would love myself and embrace my chubbs.
Courtney M.
"I feel so healthy eating the way your program has taught me."
I’m 59 years old and have been doing your program for approximately six weeks, and I am so happy with it! Not only have I lost 12 pounds so far, but I have also noticed that my hips no longer ache after driving or sitting for an extended period.

"I love the program. It is the “new me.”"
I have finally found a program that has made me feel amazing (releasing unwanted weight, decreasing body pain, increase in energy—all while feeling satisfied and no more emotional binge eating.

"Finally lost my baby weight from 29 years ago!"
I started IF last October, joined your January private group, and that’s when the weight loss kicked into high gear. By the time of the Feb pic, when my gym was doing a challenge that prompted me to take pics, I was down 10 and feeling amazing! Bottomed out

Are you struggling with middle-age weight gain?

Conventional weight-loss wisdom for women in menopause doesn’t work. I found out the hard way. Two things happened: I started undergoing the changes associated with menopause, and my brother died. Through my grief process, I gained about 20 pounds.

I had always been fit but I had stopped working out and my nutrition was upended. It was a perfect storm that blew my health and self-esteem off course. I tried to navigate my way back to my “happy weight” with the very same advice I had prescribed my patients for years: “eat less, work out more.” Like them, I was suddenly embroiled in a vicious cycle of calorie restriction and cardio that didn’t budge the stubborn pounds. I was left feeling zapped, demoralized, and frustrated. It was humbling to discover what I had been taught in medical school was wrong. That rude awakening inspired me to take a deep dive into the science behind hormonal weight gain and not emerge until I could confidently declare I had a long-sought solution for this very underserved community.

End The Vicious Cycle Of Calorie Restriction

I can’t tell you the joy and relief I experienced when I was able to confidently give women an evidence-based program that actually works! We deserve to have the necessary science to make decisions about how to properly take care of ourselves, and our bodies. Menopause can now be more of a shift for our bodies and not such a life-altering time that we are expected to simply accept.

In 2017, I carefully distilled the complex concepts from my research to easily digestible nuggets and tested them with resounding success. My goal wasn’t for women to shrink in size but to empower them so they might thrive. Not only were women losing inches and gaining muscle mass–they were sleeping better, had decreased hot flashes, and banished brain-fog. I cracked the code so menopause doesn’t have to derail women from their dynamic lives and healthy, energetic bodies. Because the peer reviewed science behind nutrition, intermittent fasting, and the hormonal factors of menopausal weight gain are ever evolving, so is The Galveston Diet. I am with you on this health journey and am unwavering in my commitment to bringing you the most up-to-date information so you are living fully with confidence and vitality. It is time for women to invest in their most precious commodity, their health.

"I believe that real change takes time. Success is not achieved overnight. Step by step, you can make nutritional changes to lose weight, have more energy, decrease brain fog, and increase overall well being. We are here to support you on that journey."
