I like it I don't like it I have a question. Information from the ConsumerLab. The biocleanse is the first one that works without crazy cramping. After 7pm the "great deal" they were giving me would no longer be valid. I don't understand why people even pay so much to do something they can do at home. Zara Tindall leaps fence on her horse

This program is difficult at first but when you get into the swing of things When I went back in, I talked with a guy that had lost weight then got off the program and gained it back so he went and got the gastric band.
He had the band removed and came back to QWLC because he knew it worked for him. They will tell you exactly what to do and will stick with you through it.
You will be weighed and measured two to three times a week and have your blood pressure taken. I speak with lots of other members, some have gotten off injections for diabetes. Many other people on the plan that I have talked to have had medical conditions that have dissapated or at the very least have become more controllable. The person that said how happy they are with the program must be an employee. I don't think it is a real commit.
I went in for my"30"minute app. I too didn't get a direct answer about how much per month this would cost. They do have papers you sign about the products being non-refundable, but when I signed it I didn't realize that was what I was sighning.
They are very sneaky that way. If their plan is so good and works so well why don't they stand behind thier products with a money back guarantee if you aren't satisfied. I too feel like I have been ripped off.
THey make sure they are covered, but you are left out standing in the rain holding All your products. They made me feel like I had to spend all this money on their products for the plan, so I said yes, with tears in my eyes because it was SO much money but they said I would loose the weight if I did the plan exactly, which I was prepared to do because I wanted to loose the weight. The products made me feel very jittery and then I would feel low.
It is so restrictive I felt like I was in food prison and that is the last thing someone who is overweight wants to feel. Like they have been cheated, because that just makes you want to eat more! Now I have a cabinet full of stuff I can't use and I am so frustrated!!
I will give you a really good deal I promise, right after you sign something for me. Anyway I have talked to corporate a few times and they just go on and on about how good thier plan is. She even told me I must be sick if the products were making me feel bad. She asked where I buy my vitaimins and mega 3 fish oil and when I told her Wal-Mart she went off on a tangent about how she wouldn't buy ANTHING like that from Wal-Mart and that it was probably their stuff that was making me feel bad, even though I have been taking them for several years now and I've been fine until I started taking their products.
I got so frustrated and stressed talking with her I said I wanted to talk to her boss and she said she would have her call me and I am still waiting here for her call. I can't do this plan it is so hard and they don't tell you this up front. Anyway PLease if you are thinking about this plan be careful very careful before you join.
It is tremendously expensive and if it doens't work for you, you are stuck big time. They hit you with the hard stuff after you have paid. Especially if they are vague about explaining things which they are. I feel pretty dumb right now and broke, and hungry!! Well, they say you learn something everyday and I have met my qutoa for the year!!
Believe it or not it works, just not as fast as they claim. She loses around 1 pound a week. The good news, my wife has lost 30 Lbs since joining. I have been doing QWL for 14 weeks and am down 52 pounds with 18 more to go. Yes, the supplements and office visits are required but if you know how to use a search engine you can find the exact same products elsewhere for a lot less. But, I feel it has been worth it. The food outside of the suppliments is easy, but limited.
You cam be creative with everything you're allowed to eat but i just stick to a daily meal plan that works for me. I don't really eat the daily fruit that i'm allowed because it seems counter -intuitive.
The problem I think that the OP had was that when it says 8oz of grilled chicken, then you only eat 8oz! Portion control folks, portion control. If you can't lose weight on this program by yourself then you need to see a doctor because there is something else wrong. I believe that almost every diet you go on and stick to you will lose weight. Anyone with an overweight problem has been there and done that.
This diet is the worst one with false advertising that i have ever seen. Well I have faithfully followed this diet and yes I have lost weight however, i lost 11 pounds in 10 weeks, that is not pounds?
The centers put you down and blame everything on you. The diet is expensive and works better for men and very overweight people. When you walk into the center it has a chalk board with the biggest weight losses each week, down 18, down 10, down 6 etc. The center knew I wanted to loose 19 pounds and they said oh yes, 10 weeks, well they will try and get me for the extra money but i will not fall for their tricks.
Go to weight watchers if you want a nice slow weight loss. They are mean and make you feel bad. Buyer beware you have to buy their supplements but can purchase them on other web sites cheaper. If you do purchase them elsewhere you have broken the contract and when your time is over they will not help you I had 70 lbs.
After losing only 10 pounds in 3 weeks, which i thought was fine, my "counselors" kept insisting i must be cheating, and i was not! I had to explain to them that being female and post-menopausal was going to make it slower for me. I had to explain this to them? They are not professionals, not even intelligent or compassionate. Even though my counselor said she was a nurse! I paid top dollar for their program, but watched while the counselors all woman would fawn all over the male clientele.
Their so-called pep talks to me made me feel worse about myself. I guess i wasn't losing the weight quickly enough for them. I walked away from their over-priced, over-hyped program. And notice their spokespeople who have been through their program are all male and are given a much reduced in price or free program. Save your money and go to Weight Watchers - where they know everyone loses weight at different rates, won't charge you an exboritant fee, don't load you up on their carb blockers and other supplements, and will not accuse you of not following the program.
My SIL lost over 70 lbs. I did follow it and lost 26 lbs. But I do agree that their attitude is a very hard sell attitude. Maybe it is a requirement to have experience selling used cars , They should be up front with how much it costs BEFORE someone decides if they want to try it.
That would force the cost down cause people would just be walkin out. I have read so many times that people felt pressured or trapped into it. With the money they charge, they could afford a national website so clients can communicate with each other. So why isn't there one? Why wouldn't they want clients communicating with each other? What are they doing with that extra money?
It's almost a shame the diet works so well, cause that initial cost and the continued pressure to buy more of this or that "on sale" I think people who get wind of the initial costs don't even give this diet another thought because of cost alone. That is a shame cause it could be helping so many more people than it is. A personal food complaint I had was I am not a big fan of chicken They didn't like it, but I ate beef more often than is on the plan.
While it seems that a variety of the ppl who posted comments had a horrible experience with QWLC. I joined the program today. I had a very nice and informative counselor who explained in great detail the cost associated with the plan and the need to follow the diet guidelines.
She further explained that in lieu of taking supplements you could add exercise to the program. The supplements to speed up the weight loss but is not necessary for the weight loss.
I feel bad that most of you had a negative experience, but so far mine has been positive. Guess I will find out for sure in 30days. Guess what, I've lost 35 lbs and my health is better than ever. I took a hiatus from exercise and combat sports to heal a sports hernia, and I didn't exercise for the first 6 weeks of the program and still I've lost an avg 4 lbs a week.
I can understand how people feel pushed, it's a high pressure sales world. Read the fine print, nobody forces you to sign anything. Nobody takes the money from your wallet. How about you take some responsibility about the matter? It's not a magic pill, it takes time. And I love it there. Guess what, I don't work there. I look around and see my friends and myself who've used QWLC and I see a bunch of people that have had their lives transformed by the program.
I can understand being overweight, been that way my whole life, but I'm not going to feel sorry for someone who is not up to the task. Like I've always said It's up to you to stay disciplined, not the salespeople. Well, so far so bad. I was lured in by an ad on a Christian radio station. Thought it meant they were an honest, upfront group. I was a home client being too far from any centers, and was supposed to receive everything by mail within a week.
It came 2 wks later. Well, a few pages came enabling me to do the 3 day prep and the follow up maintainance phase and nothing in between!. I called both my initial contact person, the director, Brooke, and my 'counselor' Olivia; both of whom were highly resistant to my very polite suggestions about increasing their initial veracity on cost, and on the fact that I did not receive much of what they said was in the initial mailing.
Olivia subtly implied that I was not being honest. Now, what reason would I have to lie about that? Olivia was a 'new yorker' no offense, New Yorkers! She was rude and inconsiderate; a long way from the encouraging, supportive and motivating personality I was promised! I would like to know if payments can be devided instead of such a large amount all at once?
Hey Kim, my name is Maria. I would love to be your coach. Would you be interested in talking with me? I am on facebook as Maria Love-Thompson. Please look me up. Email me at lisabhealthcoach at the gmail server.
Yes of course Amanda. Happy to discuss it with you. See my comments above for how to contact me either by gmail or phone number on my website. I wanted to use this product, but I noticed that it only provides around 23 days when it says It only allows you to purchase the full 30 days if you become a member with automated delivery. Am I doing something wrong? You can order as much or as little as you like. But when you order at least 20 boxes, you can get five for free as long as he signed up for their premier membership.
Note that you can cancel that at any time. But it will need to be with a health coach. Happy to assist you with that if you like.
Once you order your first 17 selections you receive 5 free boxes of your choice which equals 30 days worth. If you have any questions email me!
I have been hospitalized 4 times this year already for pneumonia and heart issues. I used to play golf at least 6 times a week, but had to have 3 major back surgeries and my exercise fell to nothing.
How can I lose the weight? Choose lean meats and lower carbohydrate veggies. You can do it! John — there is a website called Sparkpeople. You can choose to be given a menu, or you can choose to make your own manually each day.
They also have free workout videos that will give you adaptations based on your ability. I hope this helps. Are Octavia and Medifast the same program? What is the connection? How do I answer the questions to see what program would best fit my goal?
Medifast is the parent company of OPTAVIA which offers free health coaching and their exclusive line of fuelings that are free of artificial flavorings and sweeteners. I am unable to change or delete my credit card number on my Optavia account.
Only my coach can. I think after so many years they change up the name to have new people start the program whatever it is called at the time. It is the same growing bigger group of people coaches working with clients just under a new business name. I absolutely can help you lose that much and possibly more by then.
I am interested in knowing more about the plan — and wondering about the food: Can you get samples? I need to loose a lot of weight and want to get a better understanding of what it entails before joining.
Feel free to reach out to me for consultation and we can see if this would be a good fit for you. The shakes are surprisingly decent and I almost wish I had ordered just the shakes.
I have already lost a few pounds though! If you try it, just do your best to stick with it and add in more food on days you need to. Everyone I know who has tried Medifast-Optavia has lost a lot of weight but they had similar complaints as I.
I strongly disliked the penne, chicken soup and berry cereal as well. I called to return the items and they are sending me replacements of my choice at no cost. The fuelings really fill you up during that hour time frame until your next. I have seen the results of this from several co workers and would love to try it. However, I cant eat any of the products because of severe allergies to soy, whey and peanuts. Is there a way to follow this without buying the food?
After reading about the program it appears you have to buy products even when you reach maintenance. Does this mean need to buy products for the rest of your life in order to maintain weight? Hi Joan, no you do not need to buy the products to maintain.
