Helping men lose weight and maintain it since 1985.

Harvey Brooker Weight Loss for Men Inc. moved to its current location in 1997. Acting upon his philosophy that it’s not just about weight loss, but helping men make strong commitments to themselves, Harvey Brooker has worked hard to create a motivational space for members and visitors alike. Inspiring messages and quotes adorn the walls, and each of the meeting rooms are named after people who have shown determination, tenacity, and positive change in their lives. The Harvey Brooker Power Hour Auditorium is sub-titled “Commitment”, in honour of Harvey and all the men who have committed to positive change in their lives.

Members say that visiting this highly motivational environment keeps them on track not only for their weight loss experience, but in their careers, their relationships with their families and friends, and in every aspect of their lives. The proof is in our success stories.

In The Media


As a teenager, Harvey Brooker was short and fat. He tried everything to lose weight: starving, fad diets and so-called “calorie-wise” food products. None of it worked. At age 27, husband to Helen and father of 2 young children, Harvey knew that his future health and the future happiness of his family depended on his ability to get down to a healthy weight. A colleague suggested a popular assisted-weight loss program, and Harvey gave it a try.

From the first session, Harvey knew that the power to succeed was his alone. He followed the program, faithfully recorded his eating every day, and realized that small changes in how he thought about making choices, and changing his behaviour would lead to bigger changes, and the bigger changes would lead to a new attitude about himself and the successes that he achieved and the new pride that he had in his appearance and the changes that he had made in his life. He realized that losing weight was not just about food, it took belief in yourself, support and the ability to be in control of your health.
