Dr. Bernstein Diet & Health Clinics, Edmonton Reviews (4)
What makes this diet program not worth it is the people that work there who treat patients terribly. They don't care about you or your goals and the diet being doctor supervised means that you spend 5 minutes with an uninterested doctor once every two or three weeks.
I can't stress enough how terrible they are. They state that they are being "professional" but they are impatient and rude. I went to 3 different clinics and was never once treated with respect or kindness.
Don't bother making a complaint to them either, they don't care. Save yourself the money, be disciplined and do the diet on your own, take B6 and B12, and other important vitamins, work out and check in with your doctor. You may not lose quickly but you'll lose safely. Teach yourself to eat well. GO TO YOUR FAMILY DOCTOR who knows you and your history.
Dr Bernstein himself is a jerk. I met him once and was so turned off by him. He grabbed my stomach and jiggled it around and said I need to lose 20 more pounds before I should go on maintenance. The staff are generally friendly UNTIL you stop losing weight as fast as they like. My clinic has always been good but I went to a couple of others and there are RUDE.
Towards the end when I still had 10-15lbs to go, I quit because I wasn't losing it fast enough, rude staff and just do many social activities going on.
Right off the bat I gained 5lbs but I was able to maintain that weight for over 5months including a long vacation and xmas - I worked out and ate right. However, I couldn't lose the remaining 20lbs so I decided to rejoin. It much more harder this time around because I'm so close to my goal and the weight is coming off much slower.
Overall, except for a few rude staff, I don't have any complaints about it. Your body is in starvation mode, no question about it but because you're ketosis and injections, you don't feel it. My biggest issues with the diet were mental - e.g. feeling of being deprived and lack of freedom. When I'd go to the grocery store, I'd feel sorry for myself that I couldn't buy (eat) whatever I wanted - even healthy things like yogurt, cereal, veggies, fruit, etc.
Before and after I went off the diet, I was so afraid I'd gain all the weight back and first little while I was so scared to eat anything! But now that I know I can indeed the maintain the weight and still eat whatever I like in moderation, I feel much more confident.
As for the loose skin - well I'm in my early 30s but I have been working out since I was 20 - I did weights and cardio but while I was on the diet I didn't do any exercise. When the weight came off - you could see toned muscle! My skin for the most part remained pretty tight except the usual problem area (stomach, inner thighs and upper arm). I think this depends on your age, the amount of weight you're losing, how long you've been overweight, type of skin - everyone will be different.
Overall it's so well worth it for me BUT this diet is not for everyone, not even most people. It takes an incredible amount of will power, self-control and determination. There are so many people who lose all the weight and gain it back. They go on the diet 2, 3, 4 even 5 times! If you don't have strong will power and don't want to make lifestyle change, forget it you're wasting your money.
It worked well for me because I had developed a healthy life style over the years but I just couldn't lose the weight I had already gained and am determined to never go back to the way I was!
