No physician alive has more experience treating and measuring disease improvement using Nutrition Therapy than Dr. Stan Owen, known along the Mississippi Coast as Dr. Diet.

Stanford A. Owen, M.D. is a national leader in Nutrition Therapy of disease and has developed the only diet strategies that focus on disease outcome instead of weight loss. Being a specialist in Internal Medicine, he treats patients with Type 2 Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, and Heart Disease as well as Obesity-related illness like sleep apnea, acid reflux, irritable bowel, back and joint pain, and fatty liver.

He is Board Certified In Psychopharmacology (how drugs and hormones affect the brain and behavior) and is author of three books: PrescriptFit Medical Nutrition Therapy; The Best Sex of Your Life: Diet and Medical Therapy; and The Weighting Game. He has partnered with pioneers in the field like Kenneth Cooper MD (invented the word “aerobics”) and Dr. Marvin Clein (developed the training facilities of the US Ski team, US Olympic Boxing team, and many professional athletes) both of whom studied the effects of exercise on health and performance. Dr. Owen’s research involves over 60 studies on experimental drugs seeking approval from the FDA and he served on the National Primary Care Advisory Panel of GSK pharmaceutical company and was a national speaker for that company.

His unique diet strategy called PrescriptFit Medical Nutrition Therapy is used in clinics across the United States.

Speaking Topics

Weight loss is irrelevant!
Losing weight is hard; reversing illness (with diet) is easy
Why we lose sex? How we get it back!
Stop the hemmorhage!
How illness is sucking your company dry and why it doesn’t have to.


Dr. Donna Ryan, past President of the International Obesity Society and Associate Editor of the Journal Obesity wrote the foreward of Dr. Owen’s book, PrescriptFit Medical Nutrition Therapy. She quotes: “Dr. Owen’s approach is not “one size fits all” but instead personalizes the Medical Nutrition Therapy strategy, allowing patients to enter the program at different phases according to their profile/needs. By far the greatest achievement in this book is the way Dr. Owen links the comorbildities to weight gain and emphasizes disease severity as the driver of how intense the approach should be. To my knowledge, there is no rival book in the realm of popular “diet books” that links diet strategy so presuasively to health improvement.”


Dr. Owen in the Media

Dr. Owen has been featured in Shape, Vogue, Self, Golf, and Weight Watchers magazines, interviewed by National Public Radio, ESPN, and CNN and been featured in articles in the New York Times, Washington Post, and Chicago Tribune. His spa hosted Shape Camp sponsored by Shape Magazine.

Dr. Owen has been a regular speaker to physician groups including Age Management, Cardiology, Plastic Surgeon, Osteopathic, and Family Practice physicians.

He is an annual presenter at the Louisiana and Mississippi Nurse Practitioner Associations.
Dr. Owen produced, directed, and hosted a popular television series called The Doctordiet Show on NBC (WLOX) that out rated three time-competitive shows combined: Saturday Night Live, Austin City Limits, and Mad TV.

In spite of an epic obesity and diabetes epidemic and with business health costs soaring through the stratosphere, there are no credible national speakers on the subject of diet and nutrition. The leading two media voices for diet and nutrition are Dr. Oz, a heart surgeon and Dr. Travis Stork, an Emergency Room Physician.

Dr. Owen is an engaging and compelling speaker, making complicated and confusing subjects very simple.

Finally, a voice of knowledge AND experience can engage and change your insight about reversing your illness or your company’s bottom line

Dr. Owen’s philosophy is simple: 1, 2, 3. If it goes past three, it won’t work.
