The SOTA program and staff are great. I lost 40lbs in 6 weeks and have maintained that for 11 months. I have learned how to keep a weight I am very comfortable with. I enjoy the meals and look forward to those dishes that helped me loose weight and maintain. The guidance and encouragement from the staff was very helpful and continues to this day. One friend and a coworker saw my weight loss and they too met their goals with SOTA. It works.
