About Us

Are you looking to gain control over food cravings and overeating? With over 25 years working in health care (first as a nurse, and now as a physician), I understand the unique challenges health professionals face when trying to lose weight. Working nights, stress and burnout are a few factors that can undermine weight loss efforts.My name is Delane Vaughn, MD. Like you, I struggled with uncontrolled eating and weight gain. I would lose and regain the same 10 to 20 pounds over and over. The stress of caring for patients and working nights while managing a family often caused me to use food to buffer my emotions. Although I would exercise and count calories, my weight loss efforts would ultimately fail. In addition, I felt inauthentic counseling patients on lifestyle choices while struggling with my own overeating.With the help of a life coach, I gained freedom from food cravings, snacking and permanently lost 25 pounds. This work was so influential in improving my life, I became a life coach myself. Now, I use my medical degree and life coaching techniques to help clients achieve their wellness goals.My approach offers the support and education you need to gain control, which is essential for permanent weight loss. In this podcast, I address the thoughts, feelings and behaviors that cause overeating and undermine weight loss efforts. There is no magic pill, no gimmicks, products, surgery or fad diets. I offer practical, sustainable solutions tailored for busy people who want to lose weight permanently.

Ep #27 The Ultimate Cause of Overweight and Obesity

When it comes to any problem, there are proximate and ultimate causes. The proximate cause is the event most obviously or immediately responsible for an outcome. In contrast, the ultimate cause is the higher-level cause and often the “real” reason the problem occurred. When it comes to the problem of losing weight, we often focus on proximate causes because it’s easier or more obvious. The proximate cause of being overweight or obese is overeating. The ultimate cause, however, is the underlying thoughts that drive us to want and desire foods that don’t serve our body. During this podcast, I discuss the concept of proximate versus ultimate cause and how coaching can help dig into the underlying thoughts that drive weight gain.

Ep #26 Practice: The Myth of the Savant

With any new skill, practice is necessary. In fact, consistent practice over a long period of time is the only way to become proficient and eventually master your new skill. As a nurse, for example, it takes countless times starting an IV before you feel confident in your proficiency. For me, this process also took a personal commitment and the realization that it wouldn’t be perfect the first, second or fiftieth try. This is the same with weigh loss. Learning to eat foods that serve our bodies is a new skill that needs to be practiced before it’s perfected. During this podcast, I discuss the process of practicing and the myth of the savant. I also use my own experience with meditation as an example of how mastering a new skill takes time.

Ep #25 Should Happens: Managing Our Thoughts

When it comes to life, we all have opinions on what should or shouldn’t happen. Poverty, disease, crime, car accidents and inconsiderate people are just a few examples of negative circumstances that impact us daily. It’s our thoughts about these situations that cause us to feel victimized or helpless. When our thoughts about a situation create feelings of helplessness or sadness, we often turn to food or other vices to buffer away negative emotions. In this podcast, I suggest our thoughts about negative circumstances are the problem and discuss how looking critically at our thoughts, challenging fixed beliefs and gaining a new perspective can help us overcome challenging situations. In addition, I discuss how the entitled thought that “bad stuff shouldn’t happen to us” is unrealistic and undermine our goals.
