Valentine’s Day Activities

With Valentine’s Day around the corner here are some ideas to share with that special someone on this big day.

Showing that special someone that you are sweet on them doesn’t have to revolve around chocolates and candy. With the emphasis on the heart on this special day, try celebrating with fun activities instead. Spend the afternoon ice-skating together or dance the night away at a fun night club. Building a snowman together is a great way to feel like a kid again, too. If you’ve got the time and the terrain, plan a weekend getaway to the hills for some skiing or snowshoeing together. Physical activity, especially fun ones, is proven to have many happy side effects – it’s great for your cardiovascular and muscular health, improves self-esteem, and who knows where all those freshly-released endorphins might take the two of you!

World Cancer Day

World Cancer Day is marked on February 4 to raise awareness of cancer and to encourage its prevention, detection, and treatment. There has been enough research to validate that a healthy lifestyle and food acts as the most promising ammunition to fight the battle against cancer.

Foods which are rich in Vitamin C, Beta-carotene and Lycopene are known to protect DNA from damages. Some foods that fall under these categories are Broccoli, Brussels sprouts, Green Cabbage, Cauliflower, White Turnip, Kale, Green Collard, Apple, Blueberries, etc. Find the perfect way to include these foods in your meals through our list recipes.

Fee Increase Coming Feb 22

At Dr. Bernstein Diet & Health Clinics, we strive to deliver the best service and the best value possible to our patients. We have worked hard to control our costs, and we have been able to keep our fees unchanged for the past 11 years. However, costs have been increasing steadily every year and we can no longer ignore the fact that our fees must change to keep pace.

As of Monday, February 22, the price of our most popular 4-Week Service Package will increase. Other service packages will have similar increases. As an added value, we continue to offer progressive discounts for purchasing larger packages of services. The fee for the Initial Consultation and Maintenance Packages remain unchanged.

Please note that services can only be purchased at the clinics. Friday, February 19 is the last day to purchase services at the current prices. You can purchase as many services as you want before the price increase goes into effect.

As always, you can be confident that we remain committed to providing you with the best possible weight loss results, customer service experience and value that you have come to expect from us. Pound for pound, we are significantly less expensive than most other commercial weight loss programs. And because we are a medical office, our services may be tax-deductible and may be covered by your insurance.

If you have any questions or feedback, please contact us at: 1-888-DR-B-DIET (1-888-372-3438) or

Thank you for trusting us to help you achieve your personal weight loss and health goals.

The Importance of Medical Supervision

Studies show that as little as 10 lbs. of extra weight can lead to increased health risks. The Dr. Bernstein Program is 100% MEDICALLY SUPERVISED.

We invite you to watch the video in which Dr. Bernstein himself talks about how the diet is medically supervised. While on our program, the only people who treat you are specially trained doctors and nurses. We can perform treatments that other non-medical centres aren’t qualified to do – such as blood tests, diagnosing and treating illness and disease, and prescribing, administering and adjusting medications.
