With the SOTA weight loss program, I have been far more successful than I ever dreamed. Now, 9 weeks in, I have lost 17.8 pounds! The program is easy to follow and the products VERY TASTY. In fact, I will miss some of them a lot when I go on Maintenance. I can look ahead and believe that changing my eating habits permanently will be something I CAN do. Also, the absence of gluten in my diet has improved my aching knees! The staff is VERY supportive and helpful. The key is to commit yourself and follow the guidelines one day at a time.
