While many people associate the word “diet” with women, more than 25 percent of American men go on a diet at some point in their lives. At Medi-Weightloss™, we’ve treated more than 25,000 men as part of our physician-supervised weight loss program. Now, some of those patients are sharing their tips for weight loss success with you.
Variety is key. “Medi-Weightloss™ helped me discover foods that I liked to eat and that were good for me. It was essential to have a good variety of choices so I didn’t feel like I was eating the same things all the time and I didn’t get bored.” — Dave, actual patient, lost 30 pounds.
Don’t get hung up on the cost. Before Medi-Weightloss™, I would spend $25 to $30 a day on fast food. The amount I spend on Medi-Weightloss™ each week, including groceries, is less. I tell people that for the same amount of money you can change your life, lose the weight you want to lose, and become a much happier person. ” — Walt, actual patient, lost 212 pounds.
Get a good support system. “My medical team provided a sense of hope. The entire staff made me feel like they really cared and were totally invested in my weight loss journey. My wife and I both lost weight on the program and, after 30 years of marriage, we are starting new lives — with no sleep apnea machines and no medication for high blood pressure and asthma — with renewed energy and promise of another 30 years together.” — Tim, actual patient, lost 202 pounds.
Keep looking forward, but don’t forget the past. “I have made sure to keep pictures of me at my heaviest to remind myself what happens when I am not careful of what I eat. The biggest reason I know I will keep the weight off is I feel alive again. I am enjoying life again and doing things that I had given up hope of ever doing again.” — Walt
Be careful who you listen to. “Listen to your cheerleaders and supporters, and appreciate and acknowledge their help. Beware of naysayers and people who will try to sabotage you. They are to be ignored.” — Dave
Don’t wait until it’s too late. “I was taking nine injections each day. I was toting a small cooler everywhere I went to have my meds nearby. Then protein started to appear in my blood and urine tests. A sign of deterioration of my kidneys was now evident. This caught my attention [and he joined Medi-Weightloss™]. I continue to chart and monitor my diet and exercise. I continue to have monthly checkups. My cholesterol is at 99. My triglycerides is at 65 (down from 350). I walk 4 to 6 miles a day and do weight training three times a week. The Medi-Weightloss™ Program saved my life!” — Mark, actual patient, lost 73 pounds.*
