What People Are Saying

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-...

Jump Start has changed my life. With the help of the caring, knowledgable and supportive staff I lost over 45 lbs and have kept it off for two years. A special shoutout to the Marin Jump Start staff, especially Alfredo and Nora.

I find the program complete with excellent literature, knowledgable and committed staff, workable and healthy eating plan, and a program that works efficiently.

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...

JumpstartMD has changed my life! I have lost over 35 pounds and have changed the way I eat.

This program is ...

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...

Great Team!

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...

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 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 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...

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...

Nothing but a positive experience at Jumpstart MD Los Gatos. Very friendly, knowledgeable and encouraging staff. I've lost 30 pounds of fat in just over two months. Definitely gets you into a lifestyle mindset rather than diet .
,11 Oct 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...

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...

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...

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...
