Since beginning his practice three decades ago, Dr. Stephen Gullo has gained worldwide acclaim for his pioneering approach to weight control. He is currently president of the Center for Health and Weight Sciences in New York City.
When the New York Times conducted a survey of the nation’s leading weight experts for their prestigious T-List, there was a consensus of just two names in the field of weight control—Dr. Gullo was one of those two. Harper’s Bazaar put Dr. Gullo at the top of their list of America’s best society diet doctors and Bottom Line named him to their team of giants in the field of weight control.
After receiving his doctorate in psychology from Columbia University, Dr. Gullo served as a professor and researcher on the health sciences faculty at the Columbia University Medical Center for two decades. He is the former chair of the National Obesity and Weight Control Education Institute of the American Institute for Life-Threatening Illness at the Columbia University Medical Center. Upon stepping down from his position at Columbia University Medical Center, Dr. Gullo was honored by an international gathering of royalty, diplomats, colleagues and patients held at the United Nations under the president of the UN General Assembly, and presented with the Schoenberg Award for “the development of unique and creative modes of weight control.”
Thin Tastes Better, Dr. Gullo’s first book for popular audiences, was a national best seller, a fixture in USA Today’s list of the top 100 books, and alternative selection of the Literary Guild. People Magazine hailed Dr. Gullo’s second book, The Thin Commandments Diet, as one the “best diet books of the new year,” and USA Today called it a “book filled with practical ideas.”
As a familiar figure on television, radio, online and print media— Dr. Gullo has been interviewed by Oprah Winfrey, Larry King and Barbara Walters, and made numerous appearances on the Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox News, NBC’s popular daytime make over program Starting Over, Extra TV, and Hard Copy. Dr. Gullo has been the subject of dozens of magazine features, three New York Times cover stories, and many articles in the Chicago Tribune, Wall Street Journal, The New York Post, The New York Daily News and the Hollywood Reporter.
Dr. Gullo’s voice has reached millions of readers as a contributing editor to Self Magazine, a weight consultant to Allure Magazine, and most recently, as a member of the editorial advisory board of Women’s Health Magazine and the International Advisory Board for Chobani Yogurt.
