diet works Not sure if the shots are placebo or real like the little pills like the little boxes in the little book.

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...

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!!!)

It's working! It's working without diet aids. I have tried every program available in past 35 years. Shopping list is provided. I finally can manage accountability, situations and be prepared. I do not have cravings or any desire to cheat. I put off trying Jump Start for over a year because I did n...

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...

Program is great. Administrative issues and website need some help.

The program works if you stick to it. In my view the outline is too generalized for all bodies rather than customized for the individual.

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...

One week in and I am very, very impressed. My doctor recommended I join. He is already a member. He was referred by a doctor he is treating (as a patient) and has lost 30+ pounds already. That was enough to send me right to your door. Staff was amazing during intake session and at end of the f...

Great to be back. Love the team and the encouragement they provide. I travel a lot for work so this will be a slow process and they give great advice each week.

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

Walking was difficult because my knee hurts. I wanted to lose weight to take the pressure off my knee. My doctor recommended JumpstartMD. I lost seven pounds the first ten days on this low carb program. I feel full all the time because I eat three small meals and two snacks each day. This progr...

I truly enjoy talking to Lisa. She's a great balance of doing it right and well and making it fun. The lovely gentlemen who works the front desk is VERY good. Sincere, big heart and just perfect for customer service. And he's efficient. Acknowledges people straight away. Seems to remember us. He's j...

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 ...

My experience with the team at JumpstartMD in Greenbrae has been life-changing in the best possible way. My team set me up for success by helping me learn how to shop, cook (with NO time or skill) and stay on track with my goals while simultaneously feeding a picky 8-year-old and a pescatarian partn...

My early experience with the staff at the Los Gatos location has been excellent. They are eager to see me succeed! Just been signed up for coming up on the end of 2 weeks. So far, so good. Didn't have any dramatic changes like I had hoped, but will continue to plug away at it!
