TAMPA, Fla., Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Aside from the fact that they have medical degrees, Drs. Rita and Ian Beckford consider themselves typical when it comes to the challenges of eating right and staying healthy as a family. With a family and careers, the Beckfords know how hard it is to juggle work, family life, extracurricular activities and a healthy diet and lifestyle. For weight loss success, they knew they needed to figure out a way to have their proverbial cake and eat it too. 


After coming up with a plan, they tested their theories on themselves and it worked. They shared their new plan, "The Beckford Formula," with family and friends, and then with their patients. The success stories started piling up. They now have a new website and a new app is available for download. Their upcoming book, "The Beckford Formula," will be available on their website, Kindle and Nook.

What is "The Beckford Formula?" It is a method of developing a lifestyle filled with good habits that are repeated until they become automatic. When you get the whole family, including children, involved and make simple changes, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator and eating more protein, your family will see success.

"'The Beckford Formula' is the culmination of both of our years of weight loss management as medical doctors, with the success of thousands of patients," says Ian Beckford, M.D. "We have combined years of our own personal battles with obesity and over a decade of researching peer-reviewed medical journals, articles and books published by international thought leaders in the field of weight loss and weight management to help others battle similar issues."

About the Beckfords: Dr. Ian Beckford is a Harvard University graduate who currently works as a family physician in Tampa. Dr. Rita Beckford graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in environmental engineering.  They both received their doctorate of medicine from Case Western Reserve. She works as a family physician and also tours the country speaking on weight loss and healthy living.

After committing to The Beckford Formula, the Beckford family lost over 100 pounds.
