Less Equals More
Through a revolutionary weight-loss program by Dr. Vince Fraumeni, scores of patients shed unwanted pounds and put themselves on a path toward a better, healthier life

Americans struggle with their weight. In fact, as many as 69 percent of Americans age 20 or older are overweight, while 35.1 percent of Americans in the same age group are obese, according to data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Even though the obesity epidemic continues to weigh down the nation, one local doctor has found a way to help people attain dramatic, life-altering reductions to their weight. The system requires only minor modifications to their lifestyle—without exercise and without completely overhauling a person’s diet.

His name is Vince Fraumeni, D.C., and the revolutionary weight-loss system he has been using to help hundreds of clients each year is, in his words, “probably the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen because it doesn’t really focus on diet.”

Dr. Fraumeni earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University in Marietta, Ga., and has been working in chiropractic medicine for 23 years with his Downingtown-based practice, We Care Chiropractic. In December 2012, however, Dr. Fraumeni learned of a one-of-a-kind weight-loss program—the Ultimate Fat Loss System—developed by a friend, colleague, fellow chiropractor and nutritionist in Pittsburgh. Dr. Fraumeni himself was overweight at the time, but that would soon change.

“He said, ‘You’ve got to try what I’m doing,’” Dr. Fraumeni says. “So I tried this system he developed, and in two weeks I lost 20 pounds,” he says. Two months later the total number of shed pounds increased to 55. He continued to lose weight, even when he and his wife went on vacation to an all-inclusive resort.

The weight stayed off Dr. Fraumeni’s svelte frame, helped by the fact that he no longer craved greasy, calorie-laden foods such as hamburgers and pizza. Based on the overwhelmingly positive and transformational nature of his experience, Dr. Fraumeni felt compelled to share this weight-loss system with his clients.

“It’s the easiest system when it comes to weight loss,” he says. “Rather than diet, the plan focuses on getting your body into a fat-burning zone naturally, without shots or anything.”

Dr. Fraumeni contractually guarantees results for clients, assuring patients they will lose at least 20 pounds by sticking to the 40-day plan. He can offer such assurances with ease, he says, because the average weight loss “is so well above that number.”

The first step of the system is an evaluation, wherein a patient’s existing fitness level is assessed. Based on this assessment, the doctor creates a “biosignature,” which helps him craft an individualized plan tuned to the patient’s specific needs. Next, the doctor uses an “Ultimate Fat Loss Scan” to zero in on a person’s “ultimate fat-burning zone.” Although he typically does this in the office, the scan can be done remotely, by way of an Internet connection, using a portable scanner that Dr. Fraumeni ships to the patient. He has worked with patients as far away as Iowa using this method.

With the scan completed, the doctor then gives the patient all-natural, non-medicinal drops taken by mouth to stabilize the body chemistry and correct hormonal imbalances. From this point forward, the patient starts to lose a half a pound to two pounds of weight per day by embracing the five components of the program. These elements include hydrating, cleansing and balancing the pH of the body and nutritional detoxification, with the ultimate goal of “resetting” the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that regulates functions such as hormonal and behavioral circadian rhythms. All this is conducted under strict supervision of the doctor and his staff.

Dr. Fraumeni stays in close contact with each participant in the weight-loss program to make sure the patient is experiencing optimal weight loss in a safe and controlled manner. “We don’t wait until a problem happens; we smell the smoke before the fire,” he says. “I’ve helped people with blood pressure, acid reflux, thyroid problems. I can’t tell you just how thrilled people are with the system.”

One such patient is Don Baugher, who last winter underwent the 40-day program and subsequent 21-day stabilization period under Dr. Fraumeni’s supervision. Unsurprisingly, the program dramatically improved more than just Baugher’s physical appearance; he also experienced improvements to his overall health and quality of life.

Baugher had been suffering from Type 2 diabetes, and in the six weeks leading up to his treatment with Dr. Fraumeni, he had gained roughly 15 pounds and “continued to grossly grow in weight.” Not only did Baugher lose 47.5 pounds over the course of his experience with the Ultimate Fat Loss System, but he also learned upon a subsequent visit to his endocrinologist that he no longer needed medication for his illness; in fact, he was no longer diabetic at all.

Baugher had a very positive experience working with Dr. Fraumeni and his wife, Lanette, whom he describes as accommodating, supportive and always available to discuss his concerns, to review the details of the program and to celebrate his triumphs. “They’re just great people to work with,” he says. “I wish all my doctors were like that.”

Baugher’s wife, Sophie, went through the program with her husband and had a similarly positive experience. When she started the program, she had a metabolic age of 90. After her transformation through the Ultimate Fat Loss System, her metabolic age dropped to much healthier 58. She says she also feels vastly more energized in her day-to-day life.  

Another patient, Valerie Johnson, first went to see Dr. Fraumeni last May. Diagnosed by her physician as pre-diabetic, Johnson had sought out the Ultimate Fat Loss System to see if she could improve her condition without medication. She started the plan in June and before she knew it she had dropped nearly 50 pounds. She also succeeded in getting off medication—and, like many of Dr. Fraumeni’s clients, she says she now has more energy and is in far better health.

“It’s easy to maintain because while you’re doing the Ultimate Fat Loss System, you lose your taste for the ‘garbage’ food,” she says. “If you do it the way you’re supposed to do it, you’ll find a whole new you.”

Johnson and the Baughers represent just a fraction of the people whose lives have been dramatically altered as a result of working with the Fraumenis. Such successes have sparked an upsurge in demand for the Ultimate Fat Loss System, and the Fraumenis’ business has blossomed to accommodate this demand. In addition to the practice’s three existing locations in Downingtown, Wayne and Cherry Hill, N.J., the Fraumenis have plans to open two more—in Willow Grove and Havertown—within the next six months.

“We’ve been in practice for 23 years, and ever since we started offering the Ultimate Fat Loss System, our business has tripled; it’s like it has a mind of its own,” says Lanette Fraumeni. “We’ve gotten so big so quick, all by helping people live healthier lives. If someone loses 30 or 40 pounds, that’s life changing.

“People tell us all the time how much this has changed their life,” she continues. “They say that they no longer have knee problems, they say that they were Type 2 diabetics and have been able to get off their medications, and they say that they no longer have thyroid issues. That’s the benefit of the program. The weight loss is a side effect.”
