Mr. JB is a 51 yr prominent cardiovascular surgeon and father of five in northern Wisconsin. He entered medical school at 20 years old and became one the youngest fellow cardiovascular surgeons in his program. He envisioned a life of many years serving his patients and improving their health and in many cases saving their lives. Mr. JB never thought that at his age he would have to start saving his own life. For the past 25 years, he has worked a fulltime shift of 80 to 100 hours a week taking night calls almost every day. At the end of a work week, he felt fatigued, stressed and irritable. Over the last 5 years he was experiencing some intermittent pressure-like chest pain. On several occasions, he had been a patient at the emergency room. He knew he lead a fairly busy and stressful work life and it was adversely affecting his heart health. He had many sleeping difficulties averaging only four hours at most of sleep at any given night. He expressed concern for his weight 295 pounds with a previously measured body fat of 45.9%. He knew he had to lose weight and he knew it could possibly save his life and prevent a heart attack.
