Medi-Weightloss Clinics®

Medical Weight Loss Solution
and Smart
 Franchise Opportunity

Over 40 billion dollars was spent last year on weight loss treatment, yet two-thirds of the United States population remains overweight or obese. “Too few understand that obesity is a legitimate medical condition that almost never responds to mere willpower,” says Medi-Weightloss Clinics® CCO and Director of Research & Development Macklin E. Guzmán, MPH. This knowledge elevates Medi-Weightloss Clinics above other weight loss programs and franchise opportunities. “Our researchers thoroughly examine new technologies, techniques, and tools,” Guzmán says. “The knowledge guides best practices demonstrated in our franchises and the development of our proprietary programs.”

Through its evidence-based weight loss and wellness programs, including Acute DM for diabetics, PowerPlay™ for adolescents, and InterActive Exercise, as well as its Corporate Wellness Program, Medi-Weightloss Clinics is leading the fight against obesity at home, at work, and among the nation’s youth.

“Obesity contributes to health conditions like diabetes, sleep apnea, and high blood pressure and increases the risk for heart attack, stroke, disability, and certain cancers,” notes Medi-Weightloss Clinics CEO and Founder Edward Kaloust. At its core, Medi-Weightloss Clinics is committed to helping people make long-term lifestyle changes that reduce their risk for serious health conditions. “In addition, the effects on confidence and self-image are profound,” Kaloust adds.

Medi-Weightloss Clinics’ individualized three-phase approach has been effective for over 100,000 patients who lost a combined 2.2 million pounds. Patients are under the close supervision of a physician, an experienced staff of counselors, nutritionists, and other professionals who address the medical, motivational, physical, nutritional, and educational facets of obesity. The results are significant. Typically, patients lose up to 20 pounds the first month and reduce their BMIs enough to produce measurable health benefits.

Growing Need Fuels Franchise Opportunities

One of the greatest neglected health problems of our time according to the World Health Organization, obesity affects more than individual health. Chronic obesity also drives up the cost of healthcare for the public and private sectors. “We have established Corporate Wellness partnerships with over 240 employers who recognize that excess weight drives up utilization of healthcare and leads to lost productivity, higher workers’ compensation costs, and unnecessary turnover of valued personnel,” Kaloust notes.

The burden obesity places on businesses is fueling the demand for evidence-based weight loss programs like Medi-Weightloss Clinics. “We offer a turn-key operation that includes training, corporate systems, supplies, and support,” Kaloust says. “Our franchisees are investors and physicians who are looking for opportunities to fill an enormous need in the marketplace, provide a public good, and generate excellent profits.” With approximate monthly gross revenues of over $60,000, Medi-Weightloss Clinics is among the most exciting investment opportunities available today. Franchises are being awarded now in select locations. Medi-Weightloss Clinics invites physicians and investors to explore the benefits of franchise ownership.
