Today is day one of transforming my “dad bod” back to its former glory. Through this transformation, my goal is to decrease my BMI while increasing my overall skeletal muscle mass by engaging in healthy eating habits, proper exercise, and pharmaceuticals. Join me on this two-month journey towards improved health and wellness.

One-month check-in on my journey toward improved health and wellness. By changing the way I look at food, minimizing my stress eating, and safely using Mounjaro®, I have lost 11 pounds and increased my muscle mass by 4%. Keep following along to see my progress. With my help, you could be next!

We reached 2 months, and my body has made a complete transformation. I have lost a total of 20 pounds over this 2-month journey and, thanks to Mounjaro®, I have completely changed my diet and exercise routine for the better. I can see abs beginning to form.

The only thing better than experiencing the amazing results of transforming your body, is when I get to help my clients look and feel like the best version of themselves. My client Nico has been using Mounjaro for the last month and has already lost 14 pounds of his 75-pound goal. As for myself, I have been off the Mounjaro® for one month now and have still maintained my 20 pounds of weight loss.

 It’s been three months since my last Mounjaro® injection and I have not gained back a single pound. By engaging in a calorie-restrictive diet and exercise modifications, I have been able to maintain my weight loss without the need for long-term pharmaceutical use. To learn more about how pharmaceuticals can help kickstart your weight loss journey, reach out today!

It’s been four and a half months since my last Semaglutide injection with Mounjaro®, and I am happy to say I am still 20 pounds down. Thanks to diet, exercise, and the introduction of the powerful supplements Creatine and Metformin, I have been able to maintain my weight loss. When used in combination after achieving your goal weight with a Semaglutide, Creatine and Metformin can help build muscle mass and allow the insulin in our bodies to work more effectively as we age.

“I highly recommend Dr. Tepper!He is highly professional, experienced, and calming. My pregnancy and birth were such a positive experience thanks to him and his lovely staff at the clinic.”


Dr. Alex Tepper and Carlos Leon had a chance to meet up in NYC to talk about continuing the weight management journey. While losing weight can be the initial goal, keeping those pounds off and building muscle mass is the next step. Carlos Leon likes to focus on heavy weight training to keep the body active and limber. Each person starts their journey from a different point, with some needing to ease in slower than others. The key is get into the gym and move around to keep the blood pumping and testosterone levels up.

As we age, we all experience resistance and muscle loss, compounded by life’s stressors on our bodies that work against us. While some people can maintain an equilibrium with diet and exercise, the vast majority of moms and dads find it challenging to achieve or maintain their ideal weight. Living with a high BMI and suboptimal weight is well known to increase the risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, depression, and certain forms of malignancies. Years of daily stress, increased insulin resistance, practical limitations of life, poor nutrition, and of course, hormonal changes create a toxic situation that may not simply be remedied by eating less and exercising more. Normal hormonal changes such as pregnancy, menopause, and even male menopause can be contributors to weight fluctuations. No matter the cause of your weight change, we have a variety of weight loss programs catered to each individual’s needs.

I am a board certified OB/GYN in practice for over 20 years and have been a solo-practitioner on the Upper East Side of Manhattan since 2000. All deliveries are performed at The Mount Sinai Medical Center where I went to medical school and at Lenox Hill Hospital.

Every patient is unique and with the help of trainers and counselors and Metformin, hormonal analysis, Mounjaro, and Semaglutide compounds, we can achieve the ideal weight for every person. Many of us don’t have the time, energy, or may have physical limitations or injuries preventing us from training like semi-professional athletes.
