Dr. Angela Tran is the CEO and Founder of MedFit Medical Weight Loss, a weight loss clinic at Denver, CO. MedFit is a medical team carefully selected to help patients safely lose weight through education, fitness training, and medical expertise. Angela is Board-Certified in Internal Medicine and the best-selling author of Fat Girl Funeral: Burying the Thoughts That Keep You Overweight and Building Weight Loss Habits for Life. In 2004, Dr. Tran graduated from the University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency in Internal Medicine at Exempla St. Joseph Hospital in Denver, CO, in 2007.

Angela joins me today to share her story of transitioning from being a primary care doctor to starting her own business, MedFit Medical Weightloss.

She discusses the metrics that define “medical fitness” and shares her thoughts on fad diets. She also underscores the importance of continuing education for business owners and highlights the value of finding the right people and business coaches.
