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

The staff at JumpstartMD help me stay motivated. They are very encouraging and offer real life solutions to improve my dietary habits. For example, my lifestyle is such that I eat out and travel extensively. They helped me continue to loose ~ one pound a week while traveling out of the country wit...

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 personal care and encouragement....also informative...especially the clinical scientific aspect.

This is my third week and I'm finally feeling a little less tired, cranky and hungry. I only lost .6 lb, and , although I know in my head that I lost almost 8 lbs the first week, and that's a good loss for 2 weeks, I still feel a little disappointed. However, I'm in it for the long haul and I'll c...

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!
,21 Aug 2016
I find the program complete with excellent literature, knowledgable and committed staff, workable and healthy eating plan, and a program that works efficiently. I had a hard time adjusting the first week. The second week things went smoothly and I lost weight. I was very fearful of not losing weig...
,23 Jun 2015
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-...

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.
,29 Jun 2015
diet works Not sure if the shots are placebo or real like the little pills like the little boxes in the little book.
,20 Sep 2016
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 have only been a member a short time but I have found the staff at Presidio Heights Jumpstart facility to be very professional,courteous, knowledgeable, and very helpful. I look forward to a bright future with the help of these people .
,20 Jul 2015
The therapists and administrative assistants are always friendly and helpful. I especially enjoy working with Liz. She's real- very down-to-earth, understands my struggles, doesn't patronize me, and gives me good advice. The program itself is very doable and easy to follow. If you're a numbers per...

I just started with Jumpstart MD, My initial appoint and my first follow up appt. so far the staff has been excellent! Very professional, do not feel rushed through my appointments.
,06 Jul 2015
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...

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...
,21 Aug 2015
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.
,14 Aug 2016
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 ...

Fantastic! Love the program. Love the results! Lou Fannon and the team are great!
,17 Aug 2016
Excellent program, albeit pricey. Works well for me since it requires a disciplined approach with weekly visits to Jumpstart for a check-up.
,26 Sep 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 ...
,18 Jul 2015
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!

Wonderfully effective program. Very supportive staff.

Program has been outstanding. Support from staff has been instrumental in producing great results.
,24 Sep 2016
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...
,14 Oct 2015
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...
