45 pounds lighter in five months! The SOTA experience has been great. It is really difficult to change old eating habits and start with a new program. That said, the 3 food supplements that are provided each day ( your choice from a very extensive list) were delicious and filling. Eating one meal a day from grocery items or restaurants was very enjoyable and I have never been really hungry. My y specialist, Alissa, was very supportive. Our weekly meeting over the phone was always on time,. We reviewed my food chart and weight loss. and I was given suggestions to try for the next week. Totally satisfied with SOTA
