Lose Weight The Healthy Way
Obesity has become a serious and growing problem in the U.S. and in many nations worldwide.
In the United States, new statistics are shocking: Over 67% of adult men and 62% of adult women are considered obese or at risk for obesity. This is creating innumerable health issues in our society, with rising rates in men of type 2 diabetes, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, and prostate / colon cancers, as well as other concerns.
The weight loss industry earns billions of dollars every year in the U.S. alone with sales of prepackaged meals, weight loss shakes, “magic pill” weight loss supplements, “fat burner” teas, exercise videos, and books about the newest “instant weight loss” fads. But the problems faced by men suffering obesity are not going to be cured by a stimulant pill or fad diet.
With a staggering annual death toll of over 300,000 related specifically to obesity, and the knowledge that an obese person’s life expectancy is significantly reduced – shortened by as much as 20 years – we must take serious action. We must treat obesity as the medical issue that it is and make informed, intelligent, long-term lifestyle changes to see results.

Those with underlying health conditions will receive medical supervision and ongoing health assessments during the weight loss process, to monitor all pertinent health metrics such as blood sugar levels, liver function, blood pressure, and both good and bad cholesterol levels. Assessments and health monitoring will vary according to the medical condition of the patient.
Experience Health Advantages with Medically Based Weight Loss
Men experiencing a wide range of health problems will benefit substantially from medically-supervised weight loss. Your weight may be putting you at greater risk for a heart attack, contributing to your body’s resistance to insulin, or increasing symptoms of metabolic syndrome in a number of different ways. Adding to the problem is the fact that excess weight can severely reduce your mobility, putting strain on your cardiovascular system and joints and making it difficult to get enough effective exercise. At Premier Men’s Medical Center, we can devise a detailed, easy-to-follow plan to get you moving, eating more nutritiously, and improving your health.
Losing weight through nutrition and exercise can help you in many ways, including:
- Reducing reliance upon insulin

- Regulating blood sugar levels
- Boosting confidence
- Increasing energy levels
