I was able to reach my goal weight in less than the time targeted to reach my goal weight. My nutritionist was with me the whole way. She made sure I stayed on track and helped me with any questions I may have had. If you follow your plan to the letter you will absolutely lose the weight. I was never hungry and I was provided with very tasty recipes that were easy to make and required little preparation time. SOTA is definitely worth the money spent to achieve a healthy weight.
