Weight Management and Weight Loss
Each year obesity is responsible for 300,000 deaths in the U.S. It is one of the leading causes of preventable deaths – just behind cigarette smoking and high blood pressure. Not simply a cosmetic problem, obesity is a serious disease that can greatly increase your risk for other health problems. These include: coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, type 2 diabetes, abnormal blood fats, cancer, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, reproductive problems, gallstones, gastroesophageal reflux disease and others.
Currently 65% of U.S adults are overweight, with 35% being obese. Of children and adolescents, 30% are overweight with 15% of these actually obese. This may be the first generation of children to have a life expectancy less than that of their parents! Based on current trends, some experts are predicting that all Americans will be obese by the year 2050. We find this extremely alarming and want to help prevent this dire prediction from becoming truth.

“At 55 years old I was clinically obese, on three medications and a sleep apnea machine. I suffered from chronic back and foot pain and my energy level was terrible. After only four months on program, I had lost 60 pounds, came off all my medications including my sleep apnea machine, and my back and feet felt great. Most important of all, after eight years, I have maintained a healthy weight. I have a new life thanks to Dr. Cohen!”
