The Power of Being Unreasonable in Order to Create a 7 Figure Clinic with Dr. Ashley Lucas [Limitless MD, Episode 58]


Dr. Ashley Lucas, founder of the most cutting-edge weight loss strategy in the US, author, and ballerina turned weight loss expert, joins Vikram Raya in this not-to-be-missed episode. Dr. Ashley Lucas holds a PhD in sports, nutrition and chronic disease and has challenged the current belief systems for health. Her key to success? Being unreasonable. In this episode, we dive into what it takes to build a successful practice, why simply moving more and eating less won’t cut the mustard, and advice for physicians thinking of setting up their own clinic.

“When you drop weight and you improve your health, it impacts every aspect of your life… We just can’t connect on a certain level when our body and our health is at a different level than, say, our career.”
