As we approach the New Year, many of us place weight loss and improved health as important goals at the top of our resolution list.
Obesity is a chronic condition that impacts the quality of life, shortens life expectancy, and is associated with a host of comorbidities and that represents a healthcare crisis. The downside of most weight loss plans is that they fail to produce a significant and sustained outcome and exhibit a high rate of failure. Treatment of obesity cannot be treated simply with lifestyle behavior alone, but rather necessitates evidence-based medical interventions.(1)
Although lifestyle modifications are highly recommended as the cornerstone in combating obesity, such strategies are not always successful in the long term because of the high rate of relapse, in part due to lack of compliance to the prescribed regimen.(1)
In recent studies, testosterone has been shown to manage sustained long-term weight loss without regression, as well as to produce improvement in body composition, reduction in waist circumference and improved BMI.(1)
Long-term testosterone therapy in men with testosterone deficiency also produces a significant reduction in fasting glucose, total cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, triglycerides, and increased HDL.(1)
Revibe’s Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) Treatment Plan not only provides a sustained weight loss program but also has been proven to provide higher energy levels, increased mental acuity, improved physical performance, quality sleep at night, and greater endurance and productivity.
In addition to TRT, Revibe’s Weight Loss Program allows for immediate results designed to jump-start weight loss goals. By incorporating the Prolon ® Fasting Mimicking Diet® along with appetite suppressant medications, B-Complex injections, nutrition and exercise guidelines, patients will be best situated for achieving the desired lasting and long-term weight loss goals and healthy lifestyles they seek.
Revibe’s evidence-based, clinically advanced, and scientifically engineered Testosterone and Weight Loss Programs provide a synergistic combination for successful weight loss, improved health, and optimal lifestyle for the coming year.
