Survey Says....

Newsletter November 2015 stats
A recent survey conducted with current and former Bernstein Diet patients revealed some interesting statistics about the program.

We so strongly believe in the Bernstein Diet that we guarantee that you will lose 10 lbs every month if you fully comply with the program, or we will treat you for free until those 10 lbs are lost.

Many of our patients have struggled with weight their whole lives, and believed they would always be overweight. The Bernstein Diet is based on sound, proven medical principles, exceeding expectations and improving the patient’s quality of life.

    • (including competing diet programs as well as self-directed attempts at weight loss).

The Bernstein Diet only targets stored fat instead of muscle or electrolytes, and the program teaches healthy eating habits for life, making it easier for patients to maintain their success. Unlike many other weight loss methods, the Bernstein Diet is structured to prevent rebound weight gain.

The diet’s good reviews and high success rate were two of the most popular factors that prompted patients to join the program.

There are many benefits to being on the Bernstein Diet, and good results are typical. If you’re considering joining or restarting, call now and look forward to your success!

Managing Diabetes

November is . Diabetes Mellitus is a group of diseases characterized by high blood sugar levels that develop when your body does not produce enough insulin, or when your body does not effectively use its insulin.
Type 2 Diabetes often develops in overweight adults and is primarily caused by insulin resistance. 90% of people with diabetes have Type 2, and obesity is a leading cause of insulin resistance. A family history of Type 2 diabetes also is shown to increase the chances of getting it. People with high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or whom are 40 years of age are at an increased risk.
If you have Diabetes and lose the extra weight, you can achieve better control of your blood sugars and reduce or eliminate your need for diabetic medications, including insulin. Our expertly-trained doctors and nurses monitor you throughout the program and can help you prevent the very serious complications of diabetes, such as blindness, amputations, heart attacks, impotence, etc. as you lose weight.
Blood tests may show your diabetes no longer exists. Imagine no longer needing to do finger-prick blood sugar tests!
Speak to your physician to discuss how your diet plan can help you manage diabetes.
