The Team

Gauri Dayal, M.D. – Medical Advisor

Dr. Dayal graduated Valedictorian from Friendswood High School and then earned a Bachelor’s degree with highest honors from UT-Austin. She completed her medical school training at Baylor College of Medicine and is a board-certified Family Physician who has been in private practice in the League City area for the past 12 years. She is thrilled to offer a weight loss method that emphasizes a long term transition to healthy eating and lifelong weight maintenance.

She has been very pleased with the positive health effects she is observing in many of her patients with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, high blood pressure, gastroesophageal reflux disease and sleep apnea as they lose weight. On a personal note, Dr. Dayal went on the diet herself before she put any of her patients on it to get full confidence in the method and its efficacy and ease of use.

Shelbie’s passion has always been to help people live a long and healthy life. She strives to educate her dieters about the impact of nutrition on health and motivate them and assure them that they are not alone on this journey. Her experience in fitness, nutrition, and mental health has given her insights and understanding of the many challenges people face with weight-loss.

Shelbie’s passion for health and fitness started 7 years ago when she started doing competitive powerlifting. After discovering her love for strength training, she realized the importance of nutrition and diet on health. This led to her involvement with various obesity, nutrition, and exercise health campaigns where she researched, surveyed, and interviewed individuals to show the negative effects diet and sedentary lifestyle has on health.

Shelbie earned her B.A. in Health Communication with a Minor in Education from University of Houston where she learned how to effectively distribute and teach health information.
