BookcoverMeet Drs. Beckford – a married couple who are both affectionately known as “Dr. B.” Both Ian and Rita have been family medicine doctors for 14 years. And they don’t mind admitting that at various times during their 18-year relationship, they battled to control their weight while raising two kids and managing a hectic schedule. At work, they found themselves constantly telling patients with diabetes, hypertension and other illnesses to lose some weight, but privately the Beckfords were struggling too, see-sawing on the scale for years as they experimented with fad diets and exercise crazes. “C’mon – with all this brain power, we ought to be able to figure this out,” the two doctors told themselves. After all, Ian went to Harvard for undergrad, while Rita studied engineering at Northwestern, and both attended Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine. 
    Today, their up-and-down weight woes are over, and the Drs. Beckford have lost over 100 pounds together using the process of the Beckford Formula. After finally realizing this success and getting the scale to move in the right direction, they have decided to share the entire process – the agony, frustrations and finally the triumph!

Dr. Ian Beckford is a Harvard grad who majored in psychology then went on to Case Western Reserve Medical School in Cleveland, Ohio to earn his doctorate of medicine.
