Preferred Men’s Medical Center in Ft Lauderdale, FL Offers Help for Men Struggling to Maintain a Healthy Weight
Obesity is a serious problem in the U.S. today.
More than 67% of men—a staggering two out of every three—is at risk for obesity, or is obese already. Therefore a majority of men run the risk of innumerable health issues
The health implications of becoming obese include, but are not limited, to:
- Adult onset diabetes (also known as type 2 diabetes)
- Hardening of the arteries (a medical condition known as atherosclerosis)
- Deposits on the interior of the arteries and veins, in turn, increasing the risk of stroke, heart attack and other cardiovascular events
- Heart disease
- Increased blood pressure
- Various types of cancers
- Joint issues
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Other performance issues
Given the significant health risks that come from being overweight, it is no wonder that the weight loss industry is as profitable as it is. Each year, Americans spend billions of dollars on weight loss diets, pills, shakes, teas, videos, books and so on. It seems like there is a new fad diet out on a regular basis, with adherents touting its miraculous effects and preening about how much weight they have lost. Unfortunately, most of the time the effects of these products are only temporary.
Obesity is a serious medical condition. At Preferred Men’s Medical Center, we treat it as such. After all, being obese can shorten the lifespan by as much as 20 years, and each year more than 300,000 people have died due to obesity-related causes. To this effect, we have developed treatments and customized weight management programs specifically tailored for men of various lifestyles and medical backgrounds.
Clinical Weight Loss and Management for Men
One mistake that some people make is treating weight loss as a one-size-fits-all endeavor. However, the fact of the matter is that people differ in their physiology. This is particularly true when it comes to comparing men and women: the kinds of weight loss programs that work for women may not work so well for men.
At Preferred Men’s Medical Center, we bring our patients with programs where medical professionals are specially trained in understanding the male physiology and prescribe tailored weight management plans to assist our patients with their weight loss and lifestyle goals. Men who come to us find a focused and structured program to assist them in attaining the ideal blend of nutrition, exercise and weight management.
In addition, we provide our patients with tailor-made nutritional plans and use a program of coaching, practice and feedback to increase our patients’ chances of losing the weight they want to lose—and keeping it off. Finally, we utilize behavioral health specialists to help teach our patients proven strategies to reduce their weight in a safe and healthy manner.
It is our goal to develop each customized weight loss and management plan that is both effective and simple to implement. This helps to ensure our patients are able to successfully follow the plan and reap its benefits. The intended benefits include, but are certainly not limited, to:
- Reduced need for blood pressure, cholesterol and other medications
- Reduced chances of cardiovascular issues such as heart disease, stroke, heart attack and others
- Better overall liver function
- Better blood sugar level regulation
- Improved sexual performance
