Meet our Chief Science Officer
Dr. Martha Katz, Ph.D, M.S.
Martha at over 300 lbs in her mid-forties, and at a healthy weight in her fifties.
"Food controlled me. My cravings left me feeling desperate, miserable, and ashamed."
For years I tried diet after diet, yo-yoing up and down between 140 lbs in my twenties (“a little chubby” as one boyfriend called me) and more than 300 lbs in my forties — barely able to walk around the block.
Messages like ‘eat less! move more!’ from the diet industry weren’t helping, and I wanted to know why. I spent the next several decades, with a Ph.D in microbiology and an M.S. in nutrition, researching what works and what doesn’t. I applied my knowledge of nutrition science, metabolism, physiology, and human behavior with the power of a low-carb diet to my own life, eventually losing 170 lbs.
Since then, I've helped dozens of people transform their relationship to food (and, lose weight) using the Pally approach.
There have been many rewards from addressing my food addiction — including a greater sense of ease and peace. That’s what I want for you, too. You've already made great progress just by being here! Let's do this, together.
