Dr. P has spent the majority of his career researching new solutions for pain and weight loss. He is most well known for pioneering a procedure to block hunger, allowing people to reach a critical point beyond which dieting was no longer a struggle - work that allowed him to define the critically acclaimed “Catching Point” beyond which diet and exercise are easier for those trying to lose weight. The Catching Point was mathematically quantified using met-minutes, and represents the point beyond which healthy living is enjoyable and easy (vs. the struggle that ends so many diets in their early phases).  

Dr. Prologo currently resides in Atlanta, Georgia with his wife, two children, and two dogs.
