Lose Weight with a Customized Healthy Living Program
Many people do not enjoy the optimal health and fitness that they should; some lack important information about what their mind and body need, while others have developed unhealthy habits over the years and need a “jump start” to get on the path back to wellness.
Sometimes, individuals who are recovering from a severe injury or a long-term illness must come back from a resulting extended period of physical inactivity – or those facing an upcoming physical challenge or surgical procedure need to ensure that they are at peak health to prevent injury or complications.
At Premier Men’s Medical Center, we offer a customized Healthy Living Program to our patients wanting or needing a “health makeover.” Our team of specially trained nutritionists, physical trainer, medical specialists, and physician consult with each other and work with patients to meet each individual’s unique health needs with a comprehensive, multifaceted healthy living plan. This whole-patient approach focuses on helping patients attain their individual health goals as well as overall wellness.
Take Charge of Your Life
While life expectancies between men and women are more similar than they once were, men are still living shorter lives. Men die from cardiovascular disease at a rate of 42% higher than that of women, and the cancer rate in men – including prostate cancer – is significantly higher than that of cancer in women. In fact, one out of every six men in the U.S. will develop prostate cancer in his lifetime. Furthermore, diabetes in adult men is at an all-time high, as are heart disease and high blood pressure. These diseases can result in debilitating symptoms, reduced quality of life, and early death.
Fortunately, most of the leading causes of incapacitating symptoms and early death in men are preventable with proper screening, healthy lifestyle choices, and the correct treatments. Our customized Healthy Living Program is designed to help men take control of their health and improve their quality of life by identifying and addressing their unique medical concerns proactively. The program’s thorough diagnostic assessments will help men to:
- Be more aware of preventable health problems so they can be avoided rather than treated after the fact
- Recognize and treat developing illnesses or other health conditions early before symptoms become severe
- Identify individual strategies to maintain and increase overall health, energy levels, and sexual function
How We Calculate the Best Weight Loss Program for You
The physical exam and assessments at the introduction to our Healthy Living Program are designed to be both broader and more detailed than a normal annual checkup with your primary care provider. Depending upon your current health and your personal wellness goals, diagnostic assessments may include those for cardiovascular disease, cancer (including prostate cancer), sexual dysfunction, hormone levels, urinary comfort, blood sugar levels, stress management, and other health issues commonly affecting men.
During your initial visit to Premier Men’s Medical Clinic, your physician will conduct a comprehensive examination and talk with you in depth regarding your medical history, lifestyle, personal fitness goals, and health concerns. You will be asked about any nutritional supplements or medications you are taking, the food choices you make, what kinds of physical exercise you engage in, your general stress level and daily activities, as well as any other factors that may be affecting your health.
