The counselors are honest and extremely helpful and encouraging. The program does work if you are willing to stay on schedule with the time to eat and eat the protein meals. There is no judgement from anyone in the Rockville office.

I’ve learned how to incorporate non program food into my life. The lifestyle changes are appropriate for my age and activity level. It’s up to me to take responsibility for my success.

I'm hitting this from a rather new client perspective. I started back in late July. Suggested I wait until returning from vacation in mid-August since my wife and I were going to an all-inclusive resort in St. Lucia -- Sandals, Regency La Toc. Figured there was no point starting, then stopping, and having to start again after being on the program for only two weeks. They advised I start right away, then go on maintenance for that week. They wanted to see how I would respond to the program.

I was very interested in seeing that myself, being I have had weight problems for a long while, but was really hit with weight gain when I returned from Iraq with an injury which prevented me from working out. I blew up quickly, and after retirement it got worse. I'd been to a number of dieticians, but none had any answers. They were astounded that I could eat as I did -- healthy, balanced and reasonable diet and STILL not lose anything. I ever had Bethesda Naval Hospital puzzled.

I was in sticker shock over the price. It's way more than anything I imagined. But having broken into the "morbidly obese" range I decided I had to do something and since nothing else worked, I bought into a ten-week program.

Lost just over 5 pounds in the first week. No one burns fat that quickly -- after all, fat is 3,500 calories per pound. It was actually a combination of fat, water and muscle. I came back up a little in muscle the next week. Lost perhaps a pound or so the second week. I then went on vacation. I was off diet, having lots of things that were off the menu. Sorry, it was vacation and I wasn't going to bring their 'tasty cardboard' means with when I'd just paid for a full butler service suite. But what I did find is they served what I call "Euro portions" (European restaurants typically serve much smaller portions than ours do) but I found them for the most part satisfying. I did not over eat, and I kept the alcohol consumption, which is prohibited for good reason when dieting, to a reasonable amount. Just a few drinks, and they were all light...

I was very happy with the Alexandria team. I was able to lose 25 pounds, and it wasn't too too painful. I had to leave mostly on account of budgetary reasons. One suggestion would to provide a little more information about a maintenance plan once you leave the program.

Easy to follow program that gets results. Coaches are great while teaching and encouraging me along the way. It’s well worth the cost to live a healthy life and feel so much better.

So far so good. I have a hard time planning. EMP 180 makes it simple. The food and snacks are delicious! I am going to have to prepare some meals ahead of time, but this is my next stage in life. I am excited to take this journey.

Week 9 update: The counselors do an excellent job of coaching! I am down 40lbs, even after taking a week off for a Cancun vacation. I was shown the pictures from when I signed up. The transformation
is amazing!

This program has changed my life!! I lost 10% body fat and 25 pounds and have been able to maintain for a few months now! I recommend this to all of my friends and highly recommend it! It was fairly easy to follow - I changed my eating habits since starting- but it has been easy to change the habits because of their support!! Thank you to Vanessa and the team for helping me succeed at this!
