Dr. Bernstein Difference
The Dr. Bernstein diet is based on sound medical principles that will work for you.
The Dr. Bernstein diet works. It’s incredibly motivating to see the pounds melt away. You’ll see and feel the difference right away, keeping you excited and motivated all the way to your goal weight. That’s why our patients stick with it, lose the weight and are happier, healthier people. We use a unique combination of a low calorie diet of regular grocery store foods, behavior modification counseling, education, medical supervision, and vitamin and mineral supplements to achieve healthy and rapid success in our patients. We never use diet pills, appetite suppressants or surgery. And although exercise has numerous benefits, it is not required in order to be successful on our program.
Our unique, medically supervised program stimulates your body to break down fat faster than normal, releasing stored energy and food value at a rate of up to ¾ lbs of fat per day.* Our patients lose fat tissue that has mainly been stored in problem areas like the waist, hips and thighs.
Unlike other diets, you won’t lose essential muscle tissue, vital proteins, electrolytes and bodily fluids. We can medically prevent the difficulties that most people experience on other diets such as hunger, cravings, headaches, fatigue and rebound weight gain. It’s one more reason that you will succeed on the Dr. Bernstein diet.
Trusted, proven methods
Dr. Stanley K. Bernstein, MD, has been helping people just like you reach their weight loss goals. We have been around longer than most other diet programs and outlasted every fad diet and “magic” solution. After 40 years, Dr. Bernstein’s diet program is still one of the safest, most effective methods available to lose weight.
Unlike other weight loss centres, the only people who treat you on our program are doctors and nurses. As excess weight contributes to or causes health complications, it is important that trained medical professionals supervise your weight loss progress. Even if you don’t have any other associated medical problems, gaining and losing weight can affect many of the body’s functions, so it is vital to have your progress overseen by medical professionals.
Our staff of specially-trained doctors and nurses are uniquely qualified to manage your health-related issues during weight loss and to monitor your progress and help keep you on track.
We can reduce or eliminate your need for medications to control associated medical conditions such as Diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, osteo-arthritis, sleep apnea and many others, and we do it all without diet pills, appetite suppressants, exercise or surgery. We have seen incredible health transformations in our patients, and we can help you too!
Education – Eating For Life.
Many other weight loss programs only want to sell you pre-fabricated foods, frozen dinners or meal-replacement products. The problem with these other programs is that you learn nothing about the foods your body needs and nothing about how to make a healthy lifestyle change.
One of the most valuable things you will gain from our program is a better understanding of food and knowing what’s right for your optimal health. You’ll learn about what foods you can enjoy and what to avoid. The Dr. Bernstein program is based on a healthy diet of regular foods that you can buy in a grocery store. We’ll arm you with a complete menu of recommended foods as well as Dr. Bernstein’s Recipe Book, Diet Manual and other helpful information. You’ll enjoy nutritious, fresh food packed with the vitamins and minerals your body needs to be healthy. You’ll learn how to read labels, how to order in restaurants, how to cook healthier and how to manage yourself and your weight for life.
Vitamin and mineral supplements.
Rapid weight loss is safe when it’s done properly. That’s why we focus on keeping your vitamin and minerals at optimal levels every step of the way. High levels of vitamins, in conjunction with all the other aspects of our diet, help increase the rate of breakdown of fatty tissue or triglycerides inside your fat cells.
Counseling and coaching.
The key to long-term successful weight loss is making a healthy lifestyle change. We understand that you have likely struggled with your weight for a long time and have experienced frustration when other diets haven’t worked. We’re here to help you make the changes and reinforce the good habits that will lead to a healthy weight and to support you as you change your life. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of people through their weight loss, and we’re here for you too.
