Unfortunately, a lot of programs don’t educate their patients on how to keep the weight off and that’s something we really focus on.

Two million pounds is a lot of weight. Giant Sequoias, the world’s largest trees, grow to an average of 279 feet, can measure 26 feet in diameter, and weigh 2 million pounds. Add about 2,500 years of roots, and only a serious act of Mother Nature can knock a Giant Sequoia down. Although Medi-Weightloss Clinics® is no Mother Nature, it has helped knock down plenty of weight over the past 6 years — 2,033,748 pounds to be exact. The nation’s premier physician-supervised weight loss program is working to reduce the obesity rate by helping its patients lose weight and become healthier.
“Obesity has become a public health problem of unprecedented proportions in this country,” says Macklin E. Guzman, MPH, Chief Compliance Officer and Director of Research and Development at Medi-Weightloss Clinics®. “We are proud to provide a quality weight loss and wellness program to our patients and help make an impact on the obesity crisis in America.”
The comprehensive, proven Medi-Weightloss Clinics® Program focuses on helping patients reach their goal weight, transition into a healthy lifestyle and maintain their weight loss for the long-term. “Our patients feel a great part of their success comes from the medical team at our clinics. They are there to support, encourage, and motivate our patients every step of the way, “ says Chelsey Millstone, MS, RD, LD/N, Corporate Dietitian at Medi-Weightloss Clinics®. “We also provide resources to help you learn how to live a healthy lifestyle and keep the weight of for life. Unfortunately, a lot of programs don’t educate their patients on how to keep the weight off and that’s something we really focus on.”
Medi-Weightloss Clinics® is not only helping Americans shed pounds; it is helping change lives. One patient with a truly life changing story is Jerome Biggars. At nearly 500 pounds, Jerome was a health disaster — high blood pressure, sleep apnea, early signs of kidney and liver issues, and poor circulation in his lower legs. With the help of Medi-Weightloss Clinics® in Andover, KS, Jerome was able to lose 300 pounds! His health issues are no more, and he has more energy than ever. “I take four spin classes a week, lift weights three times a week, and walk/jog four miles three times a week,” Jerome says! He is also embarking on a nationwide bike tour to speak about his weight loss experience and raise money for childhood obesity. “I am so thankful for Medi-Weightloss Clinics®. They have given me my life back and are truly The One That Works!”
