I have tried half a dozen “weight loss” programs over the years. This is the first one that encompasses metabolic issues. Very logical & explains why others didn’t succeed. It is not inexpensive but then how much is my life worth? I am excited about this journey and can see success in the future. Instructions & food prep is very manageable & as a food lover, I find it more than tolerable. Since I just started I’ll check back in later. In the meantime I’m happy to spend the money on my heath & future well being. The staff are terrific and very knowledgeable.
