“We are committed to fighting obesity and changing lives,” says Edward Kaloust, Founder and CEO of Medi-Weightloss®.
Obesity is a free pass to many associated comorbidities like diabetes and cardiac issues. The American Medical Association declared obesity as a disease that requires a range of medical interventions. This declaration challenged the standard protocol for obesity management and opened the door to create a medical standard for the effective treatment and prevention of obesity.
Established in 2005, by Founder and CEO Edward Kaloust, Medi-Weightloss® is a nationally recognized weight loss franchise tackling the obesity epidemic. Developed by a group of passionate physicians, dietitians, and health care professionals, their program offers an individualized and physician-supervised weight loss program that is medically proven to work.
