Meet BodyTech Weight Loss & Health


I met with Larry Kay early this week to learn more about one of our new business members, BodyTech. BodyTech, located on Nebel Street, is committed to helping community members “reach a healthy weight, improve [one’s] health, and learn the importance of eating correctly.” BodyTech uses the Ideal Protein protocol to help clients achieve a healthy weight.  Additionally, BodyTech takes a much broader view of the process by customizing the diet to provide an individualized weight loss program, teaching clients about food, including recipes, demonstrations and becoming more mindful about eating correctly. BodyTech also supports their clients by providing expert coaches who have also participated in the program. BodyTech provides a friendly, community-focused environment for people to feel comfortable discussing their health and their goals for losing weight.

BodyTech started in 2010 after creator, Larry Kay, decided to offer a unique, community-based approach to living a healthy life.  Larry Kay is a community man himself. He grew up in the Kemp Mill neighborhood of Silver Spring and has stayed in the area ever since. He used to run medical clinics and decided to open up his own business helping people make healthy life choices around the food they eat.

BodyTech draws customers from all over the area including Northwest D.C., Bethesda, Chevy Chase, Olney, Silver Spring. Over the past 4 years, BodyTech has helped over 1,000 clients, who come in for regular weigh-ins and coaching, helping them not only lose but maintain their weight long term.

Larry is happy to be in White Flint area and signed a new lease recently so he can maintain his business in this booming area. His team is excited about the development and the changes coming. Larry sees the White Flint area becoming more and more desirable and he wants to make sure BodyTech stays here and gains momentum from this growth. Their Nebel Street location is centrally located in the White Flint area and isolated from main streets, providing their customers with privacy. Since their business is not a storefront, Larry and his team must make sure their product and programming sells itself.

If you are interested in learning more about BodyTech, you can attend a FREE introduction. This provides an overview of BodyTech’s weight loss protocol, time to ask questions and taste some of the food they provide. The introductions are held every Tuesday evening at 6:30pm and lasts an hour. To attend an introduction, contact BodyTech at (301) 881-1784 or at
