Melissa Love, AKA "The Westport Weight Loss Whisperer," understands that some individuals have difficulty losing weight, despite rigorous dieting and fitness compliance.

Individuals are genetically and biochemically distinct; no two bodies are alike and neither is her medical weight loss protocol that offers solutions based on science.

In fact, science is now unraveling the complex interactions and interplay of an individual's distinct metabolic makeup; including one's psychological, environmental, adrenal, neural circuitry, mitochondrial, bio-chemical system imbalances, and microbiota. 

Melissa works collaboratively with a team of highly revered physicians to evaluate these intersecting factors of each patient's unique physiology. Using a variety of state-of the-art diagnostic tools including cutting-edge blood chemistry analysis, extensive hormone testing, and intracellular micronutrient assessment, they create an evidence-based, medically-guided "big picture" plan. All programs are personalized for successful, sustainable, and speedy weight loss, ultimately restoring the body back to optimum health.

The Weigh Less with Love Difference

Weigh Less with Love cuts through the noise and confusion that surround so many other "diets". Melissa rejects all the distracting gimmicks and gizmos, the pushy pitching and selling of packaged processed food products, "miracle" detox juices, teas, and smoothie cleanses promising the pounds will peel off.


The difference is, she promotes nutrition science, counseling education, empowerment to become the expert of your own health, and offers tools and tips for controlling lifestyle behavior that leads to overeating and the if "I don't sit down, the calories don't count" BS. Finally, Melissa and her team find solutions, not commonly available elsewhere. 

The dramatic centerpiece of Melissa's protocol is identifying and treating the root cause of your weight problem.

  • Comprehensive plans for healthy menu planning and food shopping, fitness and exercise

  • Pregnancy nutrition planning and new mother’s post-baby weight loss

  • Child and teen weight loss and nutrition counseling

  • Anti-aging, cancer prevention, and immunity boosting strategies

  • Nutrition options for dining out, holiday gatherings, and traveling

  • Bioidentical hormones for women and men (i.e., low libido)

  • Compulsive overeating and binge eating disorder

  • Stubborn weight loss

  • Carb and sugar detoxification / sugar addiction

  • Depression

  • Fatigue and chronic fatigue syndrome

  • Overcoming plateaus

There are so many nutritionists in Connecticut and New York with equal credentials but Melissa has a talent you can't teach or duplicate.


I’ve done it all: Weight Watcher’s point system, no thanks; packaged food programs like Ideal Protein, where the food is filled with nitrates, salt and god knows what, never again; NutriSystem, thanks but no thanks; liposuction, done and fat grew back!

Nothing has worked except seeing this motivational / mentor / medical expert / nonjudgmental / partner in weight loss, Melissa Love!  


Her ability to get through & peel away the defenses and excuses is a true gift. She's tough and yet so compassionate — and knows everything about losing weight.

Try to get in to see this wonder woman! (if she’s taking on new patients).

I lost 55 lbs in three months and I couldn't have done it without Melissa Love's guidance and expertise.


I had actually gotten her number from the nurse at my doctor's office who recommended her. She told me that Melissa worked miracles on her as she had lost 64 lbs and looks amazing.


Melissa customized weekly menus based on my health conditions (pre-diabetes and diverticulitis) and did a complete over haul to change my life. Beyond nutrition education and coaching and because she knows so much about medical / hormonal problems, she sent me for extensive lab work and got to the root cause of my weight problems and compromised health.

I'm so excited only 8 more lbs to go.

During these past 4 Covid months, I put on 25 excess pounds. I was already heavy - and now obese - and I was desperate and ready to lose the weight once and for all.

Melissa proved to be every bit the weight loss wizard or "weight whisperer" as she's been coined. When I first enlisted her help, she gave me a health profile to fill out. I listed a few odd ailments like a swollen, sore and inflamed tongue and major fatigue which Melissa suspected was anemia. (Lab work proved she was correct) I also listed an increased, unrelenting appetite and other issues which Melissa thought was "leptin resistance" and "pre-diabetes" which my lab work numbers showed.


She had the doctor prescribe medication, and she put me on a meal plan which resulted in the weight coming off fast! I've already lost 24 pounds in 6 weeks and feel so healthy and strong.


As I head toward my goal, I remain grateful and awed by this woman's wizardry!
