The Clean Start Medical Weight Loss program at Riverview is hands down the best way to lose weight and KEEP it off.
Dr. Schneider was the first part of that success, with their guidance and encouragement before, during and now after helped me know I could do it and continue living a healthy lifestyle to keep the weight off. I have done multiple other weight loss programs that had bars and shakes that the “counselors” that were heavily pushed during and after those programs, none of them ever taught me how to have continued success with eating REAL food and really educating me on the “bad habits” that can prevent me living a healthy lifestyle.
Yes, this is a quick weight loss program, I lost just over 25 pounds in 6 weeks, it was amazing to see the weight drop off so rapidly it kept me motivated knowing I only had a few weeks left. I ate REAL food no shakes, bars or pre-made meals. The calorie restriction was balanced with the HCG injections and after the 6 weeks was over the maintenance is really SIMPLE, I eat most of things I always enjoyed but I now have the knowledge thanks to Dr. Schneider and Nancy of what foods are going to get me back into “bad habits” and because this is a Clean Start I don’t miss those “bad habit” foods they are no longer my bad habits.
Also, outside of the food part of the healthy lifestyle, I have always been someone who works out regularly and in my 20’s and 30’s this kept me in shape and I was able to eat what I wanted, but now that I’m in my 40’s working out didn’t give me the same benefits, yes it kept me strong but I was always challenged with this layer of fat that just wouldn’t go away. Since completing the Clean Start program I’m seeing my body changing in the ways I have always wanted it to, this weight loss program re-starts your metabolism so that your body is responds to diet and exercise the way it’s meant to, I feel stronger and have energy that I didn’t have before.
I can’t thank Dr. Schneider enough for FINALLY showing me a way to lose the weight I always wanted to but also give me the guidance, tools and knowledge to continue with that healthy lifestyle, it’s been LIFE CHANGING.
