What you should know . . .
See why we are different and how that makes us the perfect resource to help you succeed where others have failed you.
My name is Dr. Nicholas Trujillo but you can call me Nick, I never really liked being called "Doctor" anyways.
This is my beautiful wife Megan and I. Together we have six amazing kids, including two sets of twins. Yes, we have our hands full.
I'm a Utah based metabolic health & weight loss expert with board certification in both Family Medicine and Obesity Medicine in addition to a degree in Psychology. My passion is empowering individuals with the tools and knowledge to transform their health and weight for good.
I want to tell you a little story of why I am not your typical physician and how I believe I have the answers you have been looking for. No gimmicks, no tricks, no secret products and no empty promises. I have answers and I want to share them with you.
First, have you ever asked yourself these questions?
- Why can't I lose the weight and keep it off?
- What way of eating is best for me to reach my health & weight goals?
- Why am I hungry all of the time or lack self control?
- Why can't I ever stick with my "diet" plan?
- Why do I keep self-sabotaging myself?
- How can I get off all these medications or reverse my chronic conditions (eg diabetes, high blood pressure, PCOS, metabolic syndrome, high cholesterol)?
- How do I get through this "plateau" or finally reach my goal?
If you have asked any of these questions then you have discovered the right place to find answers.
It doesn't matter if you are just starting out, half way through your journey or almost to your goal weight/ health. I'm confident I have the unique experience necessary to teach you the knowledge and tools needed to achieve long term health change. That is what it is all about right?
This is NOT the place for temporary quick weight loss tricks just to gain it back a couple months later. We are going to help you get to the core of your behaviors so that you can reach your health goals and stay there.
Leaving Traditional Medicine And Paving A New Course
Yup, I went to countless years of school and then left medicine. Sounds pretty crazy as I write this down. Well, here is your chance to understand WHY.
My why stems from the difference in priorities between myself and our healthcare system. You must understand that my passion lies in helping individuals address their root problems and empowering them with the tools needed for long term health change. This is the way I know I can maximize the impact I have on a persons life. To me, there is no other way to approach the practice of medicine.
Unfortunately our healthcare system is driven by massive insurance and pharmaceutical companies that do not share my passion. This results in a system where a physician must frequently go against their moral compass, see patients every 15 minutes and be a slave to a medical record system in order to make a living. This can routinely leads to impersonal care, over-prescribing, unnecessary referrals to specialists, and a frequent inability to help people get to the root of their health problems. Our "health"-care system has become a "sick"-care system. It does not prioritize nutrition and lifestyle interventions, which I strongly believe are the most powerful tools we have.
Fighting To Do The Right Thing
This grim picture above was not how I envisioned my career as a physician so I decided to go against the norm and do exactly what I believed was right by my patients. I pursued further training in Obesity Medicine and in 2016, I created the Granger Metabolic Health & Weight Management program. We specialized in guiding individuals through intensive nutrition and lifestyle interventions. It was extremely successful. We transformed hundreds of lives with huge weight loss, freedom from medications and even routinely reversing chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and PCOS.
This was the medicine I believed in, and it was powerful. Everything was perfect except for the fact that the entire time I ran this insurance based program I was hit with relentless resistance from our healthcare system. This resistance from nearly every direction eventually made our program unsustainable. Doing the right thing wasn't enough.
I fought back long and hard but I began to realize after 3 years that this is a battle I will never win. There are too many external forces pushing physicians toward a form of care that I do not morally connect with. It was then that I began to fear the day that this relentless battle would eventually rob me of my passion for helping people. If I hoped to keep my passion for helping individuals like you alive, I had to find another way to share my message.
That is when I decided I must leave "traditional medicine" in order to continue my positive impact. So here we are. I have jumped into the unknown because I believe it is the right thing to do. I have since recreated and transitioned my successful clinic approach into a revolutionary online program that is continuing to change lives. I am now able to help guide thousands of individuals, like you, without the unfortunate barriers of our healthcare system.
