Getting Lean Naturally

Thriving on Real Food

Taming the Hormones that Trigger Cravings & Store Fat


The WeighBetter online course will teach you to...

  • Stop blaming yourself. It’s not your fault! We don’t get fat because we’re bad or weak. We get fat because our bodies and brains evolved long ago in very different conditions when food was scarce and vastly different from today’s industrial food. The body's  fat regulation system that evolved and enabled us to survive has been hijacked by modern foods and is driving the obesity epidemic. (Initially a survival force, the fat regulation system has become a fat force.)
  • Get lean naturally without pills, surgery, special shakes or struggle.
  • Follow just a few simple rules. No calorie counting, food weighing, complicated recipes or calculations
  • Thrive on real food, inspired by the natural diet we humans were evolved to eat. Enjoy delicious, satisfying, meals of meat, poultry, fish, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and (for some) dairy. Rather than depriving yourself, you’ll be rewarding yourself with real, natural food (including healthy fats) that keeps you satisfied till your next meal. Dieting does not mean being hungry all the time.
  • Avoid key fattening foods, especially sugar and grains (yes, even whole grains). In addition to being fattening, they’re also powerful appetite stimulants.
  • Tame the hormones and brain circuits that trigger cravings and store fat. Fat isn’t just a passive bucket of lard. It’s part of a finely tuned fat regulation system left over from the Stone Age. You’ll learn how to shed pounds by working with this system, not against it, as most diets do.
  • Create a bubble around yourself so you’re not tempted by our incredibly unhealthy and fattening food environment
  • Recognize bad weight loss advice from government and medical authorities.
  • Recognize the critical roles of sleep and stress in making us fat — and how to nail them both.
  • Consider intermittent fasting if other measures aren’t fully effective. Done properly, it’s surprisingly easy, painless and effective at releasing fat that your body has held on to for years.
  • Take a practical and actionable approach to weight loss. The WeighBetter program provides concise, crystal clear steps and guidelines. These are supported by science but you won’t have to slog through dense pages of studies or boring text. You have a busy life and I won’t waste your time. You’ll learn exactly what you need to know to reach your weight loss goals in the real world.
  • Enjoy eating and enjoy the new, lean you!



My name is Richard Wills, MD and I'm an internal medicine physician in Boulder, Colorado. 

I’m passionate about helping people achieve their ideal weight simply and naturally while enjoying vibrant health. 

I’m now in the process of creating an online weight loss program that I’m very excited about. The launch date is January 1, 2019. 

I’m also available to see new patients one-on-one for weight loss in my office in Boulder. I offer a free, initial 10-minute phone consultation to see if we'd be a good fit.

For more information, please feel free to contact me at richard [at] weigh-better.com or 720-446-6187. I look forward to hearing from you!

Time till WeighBetter Course launch!

It all starts on January 1, 2019!
