12-Week Weight Loss Program

Our most popular weight loss program for men and women alike is my holistic 12-week weight loss program, Awakening. This proven program addresses the most crucial weight loss factors, including nutrition, exercise, lifestyle, and mindset.

Most men release 35-40 lbs in 12 weeks during this program. For some men, one round of this program is enough. Men with more weight to release will choose to complete multiple rounds of this program until reaching their goal weight.

Many of the men we meet have come to our weight loss clinics due to obesity-related medical concerns. My team and I meet a lot of men who are dealing with diabetes, gallstones, hypertension, heart disease, strokes, and other medical conditions. That’s why our 12-week medical weight loss program is medically supervised by myself and the other providers at my clinics. The Awakening program includes three rounds of lab work. At the initial visit, we perform specific blood tests and an EKG. We conduct follow-up labs four weeks later and once again at the end of the program.

Many men who’ve completed our Awakening program go on to enroll in our monthly maintenance program for the extra care, check-in options, and support it provides.

Body Sculpting for Men

Some men are looking to reduce excess subcutaneous fat, “pinchable” body fat which sits just below the skin’s surface. Subcutaneous fat is generally regarded as less dangerous than visceral fat (which is deeper inside the body around the vital organs), but an excess amount of either type of fat isn’t healthy. Plus, subcutaneous fat is highly visible and often more stubborn to get rid of than visceral fat. For health reasons, aesthetic reasons, and often for a combination of both, plenty of men are keen to eliminate excess subcutaneous fat.

Men with excess subcutaneous fat to release are finding incredible results with our exclusive Formnovélle green laser therapy treatments. Many men see 6 inches of fat reduction in 4 weeks. Some men see as much as 1.5 inches of fat reduction in their first 45-minute treatment.

How Does Green Laser Body Sculpting Work?

Excess subcutaneous fat is a sign the fat cells in your body have become sick and bloated with excess trapped fatty acids. Green laser therapy opens up microscopic pores in your fat cells to release the accumulated excess fatty acids. Once released into your body, the excess fatty acids from your fat cells are used for energy or drained through your lymphatic system and removed as waste. We offer a brief complimentary lymphatic drainage massage at the end of each treatment round to help move the released fatty acids out of the body.

The microscopic pores in your fat cells repair themselves and close back up within 72 hours of therapy, leaving healthy cells that have been drained of their excess fat. As fat cells release their excess material, they naturally heal and reduce back down to their natural size.

Our green laser body sculpting treatments are FDA-approved with no reported side effects, no surgery, pain, or downtime.

Hormone Replacement for Men

When we talk about weight loss for men, we also need to talk about hormones. For many men, especially those in their 40s and up, hormone balance is a critical part of weight loss and wellness.

As we age, and by the time most of us reach our 40s, our hormones naturally decline. This decline in hormones can accelerate because of factors like disease, diet, and stress. Loss of hormones is one of the primary reasons for our deterioration as we get older, both physically and mentally. A hormone imbalance can also be a critical factor in weight gain and difficulty releasing excess weight.

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) replenishes these hormones, slowing and sometimes reversing the effects of aging. BHRT naturally replenishes testosterone, DHEA, thyroid hormone, melatonin, PSA, and Vitamin D. For many men in their 40s, 50s and 60s, hormone replacement therapy is often the missing key to optimal weight loss, energy, and wellness.

Getting started with BHRT begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our providers, followed by a simple blood serum test to reveal your current hormone levels.
