Fighting an extra 40 lbs for the last few years, I decided to finally take control. Through a family member who had success with the program I decided to take the leap. I am so glad I did. Jumpstart has given me just what I needed. I have learned to make healthy choices when planning menus and h...

JumpstartMD has changed my life! I have lost over 35 pounds and have changed the way I eat. The people I meet with on a weekly basis have helped me understand my triggers when it comes to food, set personal goals and to stop beating myself up when I don't make the best food choices. This program is ...

I feel very supported and have learned good information about the emotional and mental aspects of healthy eating. I am learning good practices --and yes, new behavior takes practice. The change in behavior leads to a change in the way I think about my health--I am happy to be stepping out in chan...

Where were you when I needed you years ago. I love this program and it is working for me. Love your councelors too! I would highly recommend you. Jenny Craig keeps calling me back to get on track again but little do they know the train has left the station. You do need to advertise more. I had not ...

I really enjoy the staff at JumpStartMD in Walnut Creek, but it needs to be said that Linda is AWESOME!!
,20 Oct 2016
i like the program and both of the offices I've visited have been fine, Piedmont and Pleasanton. My only complaint is I think the website could be much more user-friendly and robust--and daily diary should be available to do onine, instead of paper. For the amount of money that Jumpstart costs, th...

Wonderful program. Results are slow and steady.
,13 Aug 2016
This program has been really, really good for my husband and I. I've adapted to eating smaller meals more frequently and am finding that I have a hard time finishing all of my food if the portions are to big. This has been reflected on the scale which is the best part. Right now I'm looking forwa...

I have only been on jumpstart program since last week but I'm pleased with my first weeks results. I have mobility issues due to MS and was having great difficulty in losing more weight and find that this is a healthy program to follow thus far. The staff is very friendly and very thorough. What I w...

Excellent program, albeit pricey. Works well for me since it requires a disciplined approach with weekly visits to Jumpstart for a check-up.

Great Team!

I like the focus on long term health and wellness. Great coaches. Insightful medical reports. Positive and supportive atmosphere. I also like the videos. More recipes and list of resources for cookbooks etc. thanks!

I thought being on medication I would lose weight faster. But, I'm not hungry and I'm eating things I've never eaten. And lots of foods too. So hopefully I'll keep losing weight I don't have any friends interested in weight loss at this time
,13 Aug 2016
Off to a great start! Didn't know exactly what to expect at my first follow up, thought I would get a little more support/info out of it, but all of my questions were answered and I was given information flyers to review. Still a little early to tell if I'd give this three or five stars, so four it ...

First appointment was great, learned quite a bit about body mass, water and what not to eat. My follow up appointment was also on time and informative.

LOVE everyone at the Greenbrae JUMPSTART.... Friendly, thorough and genuinely concerned about the program and my progress! BUT I cannot say the same about the website (sorry!!!)
,31 Aug 2016
I have been on the program for about a month now and so far I have lost about 18.5 lbs....which I never would have been able to do on my own. I like that making healthier choices for myself is also becoming more of a habit rather than a chore at the beginning. Every time I go in for my weekly check-...

Jumpstart MD has a step above other programs because it is a medical based program with medical associates. They do comprehensive lab work with state of the art equipment to help track your progress. The initial consultation is very motivating! The medical assistance are great! They are always...

At start of my second week. The program so far appears professional, soumd, and producing early results. I continue to 'digest' the food rules and recommendatios for optimal weight loss. A lot to learn And adjust living to, all at once while cooking for others with different needs. So sorry that t...
