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...

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...

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...

So far so good. with only 2 weeks in I have had great support and exceptional communication with Nora, from the Greenbrae office. The program is pretty easy to follow and incorporate into my every day life, which is key to my success. Hands down five star rating!!

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

Overall my experience has been positive and if I measure my progress by my weight loss alone I've been doing extremely well. I've lost 28 pounds which includes the additional 4 pounds I've loss since my last visit. However, there are a few issues I'd to raise. First, the optimal times for my foll...

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 joined Jumpstart about 5 to 6 weeks ago at the suggestion of my doctor. I am totally committed to the program and have had reasonably good results. The staff has always been very nice and easy to work with. However, one of the stipulations for me when I signed up was the flexibility and support d...

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.

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!

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.

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...
