This program is not for people who want to lose 10-15 pds only. No one can drink alcohol and lose small amts of weight. also the protein supplements Dr. E sells are high in sodium, which keeps fat and water stored in cells. She thought it was ok for me to use 3-4 per day and I actually gained 2 pds quicly. Got if off fast with lots of exercise and water. Her program was not tailored to my age and lower metabolism due to low estrogen.

She needs to structure a program that would fit every individual based on age, and weight loss goals.

She is nice, but I htink the program is weak in more ways that I have time to write.

On my own I have lost 5 pds with lots of exercise, lots of water, no sugar, NO alcohol, 60%protein, 40%carb, 20% healthy fats, lowering stress, getting more rest. living on about 800-900 calories a day. I also bought these really tasty protein drinks that have the perfect balance of pro/carb/fat from Dr. Alperin in San Jose, I did mail order. I use 2 shakes a day and one small meal, and if I exercise I have eithe a 1/2 shake or a very small snack.

Good luck,,,it is not easy to lose a small amount of weight, one must be very strick and disciplined.

I lost 70 pounds in 2007 and have kept it off for nearly one year.

My wife lost 60 and is still losing.

Best weight loss program I've ever used. Never felt hungry or deprived. The program had a lot of healthy alternatives and didn't dictate a prescribed menu.

I totally disagree with the person who said that this is a short-term solution for quick weight loss. My wife and I have been successful over a two year period.

Dr. Elvebakk's program can be very effective for losing weight quickly, but doesn't do enough to facilitate the behavioral changes needed to keep it off for good. Once I went off the program, I gained the weight back. Her 'bedside manner' can also verge on being harsh and somewhat abusive. After gaining some weight, I got a real lashing from Dr. E. that caused me not to return.

Dr. Elvebakk is the best when it comes to weight loss - I've been following her program for about 2 months now and losing weight consistently and it's not even a struggle. She really know her stuff and has been helping me completely re-evaluate my relationship with food. What a lifesaver - literally!
