CARL J. LAPEYROUSE
Carl J. Lapeyrouse, born 48 years ago in Houma, Louisiana, south of New Orleans, has been involved in the health and fitness field since 1985. Carl has always had a great interest in the human machine as well as physically active since he could remember. As a child, Carl had numerous food allergies and a weak immune system. He was always sick with a sore throat, the flu, bronchitis, pneumonia… Carl finally started working out in his teens and dreamed of being like the men in the bodybuilding magazines. He could never really stick with any programs for the reason that just as he would begin to see improvement, he would get sick.
Finally, at the age of 18, Carl decided it was time to take a look at the total picture. Up until that point, he had concentrated solely on exercise. Carl slowly began to include the principles of proper nutrition and a positive attitude into his lifestyle. It was an education as well as an evolution and it certainly didn’t happen overnight. Eventually, he became one of the men in those magazines in addition to appearing on ESPN. In 1989, Carl was hired by a weight loss corporation as a nutritional counselor, conducting seminars under the advisement of physicians. Valued not only for his knowledge of nutrition and it’s real-life applications, but also for his ability to motivate people in achieving a healthier lifestyle. Today, Carl owns that very corporation with clinics in Louisiana and Colorado.
The “Fat Kills, Learn the Painful Truth about Weight Loss®” program is a product not only of Carl Lapeyrouse’ lifestyle evolution, but also of the exciting new directions he has taken at our clinics helping thousands of successful patients improve their health, their appearance, and their lives.”There is no magic potion or pill. The magic is in believing in yourself. Any able-minded, able-bodied person can reach their goals”.

The Physicians and staff of WKM have one common goal; help everyone achieve their weight loss goals! At WKM we do this the healthy way. We use motivation, dietary education and exercise. We do not use any liquid meals, expensive snacks or packaged foods.
Our Physicians have 40+ combined years in medical research, women’s health and Emergency Medicine. Our doctors see the end product of obesity and feel that many disease processes can be eliminated with a healthy lifestyle and maintaining a healthy weight and BMI. Statistics show obesity leads to many disease processes such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary disease and many others.
Obesity is at epidemic proportions and FAT KILLS! Our goal is to change a patient’s lifestyle with a healthy diet, exercise and medication, if needed. With the benefit of our program, we have seen patients discontinue the use of blood pressure and diabetic medicines and alleviate the need for joint replacement therapy!
THIS IS NOT EASY and will possibly be the hardest, yet most rewarding thing a patient will ever do. We have streamlined the program and deemed it The Painful Truth about Weight Loss. Our program is the foundation for a new life. There is nothing like seeing a patient for follow up and having them shed tears of joy after losing weight and buying new clothes! It makes the hard work worthwhile.
