I am a remote client for this program. This program is UNBELIEVABLE! I weighed in at the Vienna location on April 16th at 360.2 pounds. By August 21st, I weighed 260.2 and had lost 100 POUNDS!! All the staff is super friendly, and the food makes it easy to stay on plan. My knees don't hurt, I walk 3-4 miles a day now, and quite frankly, my bathroom habits have gotten a lot better. I have one more visit planned when I hope/expect to graduate (around October 19th) and have already passed their goal of 96 pounds of weight loss. Mindset is key, but if you're ready, nothing has ever been easier for me.

I lost about 30 lbs in 4 months or so which cost me over $4000.00. I did not reach my target weight or "graduate," which means there is no transition coaching. Therefore they do not share your ideal numbers: caloric intake, carbs, protein, and meal times with you. They do not actually tell you what is in their products other than the protein/ carb count. So, you really don't learn to build your meal plans and grocery lists (and so on) unless you graduate (or at least I'm told this happens when you graduate). I did not continue because of the cost. I have put almost all of the weight back on, and am unable to afford another $4000.00 or more. For me, the coaching was really about keeping you on track with their products at the right time, and not about nutritional choices for a healthy lifestyle. If you can afford to continue on the program to the end, perhaps all of this occurs once you graduate. Until then, you are just eating their products and there isn't much learning. In fact, I felt like much of the coaching was more about inventory management then learning nutrition. I sought nutrition coaching, did a resting metabolic assessment which confirmed my body was burning mostly fat. I exercise regularly (as I did on the diet), but my body does not want to burn carbohydrates after this diet. Which means, any carbs over what your ideal numbers are, are simply stored as fat, and the weight begins to come back on. One of their coaches predicated this would happen as a matter of near certainty in order to encourage me to continue until graduation, but I felt so guilty about taking money away from the family in order to sustain purchasing their expensive products. My guess is that this occurs quite regularly. I did a quick search for negative reviews, but these are suspiciously unavailable. Maybe their success rate is ridiculously high, and I'm just one of the outliers. Healthy eating shouldn't cost this much. I'm exploring other options in the context of my gym to get back on track. Also looking at KETO, and intermittent fasting as ways to get similar results without the considerable expense. If you need to loose 30-50 lbs, plan on spending 4-6K on this program.

An incredibly courteous and knowledgeable staff. You will feel welcomed as soon as you walk in for your consultation. I was extremely happy with my results and you will too, as long as you are willing to put in the work and follow their directions! I have already recommended them to family, friends, and colleagues and will continue to do so

My overall experience with EMP 180 has been excellent and I've been right on target for my weight loss, however, there are a few things I have a trouble with. 1. There seems to be a communication issue with the coaches. My boyfriend and I tend to get two different responses when we call/email for coaching. I'm not sure of it's because the level in expertise varies from coach to coach, but it can get a little confusing. 2. I eat the protein bars for my morning snack and, every single time I pick up my food order, they are smashed. Thankfully, I eat the peanut butter crunch a lot so it doesn't make a huge difference, but, when I was getting the caramel nut or the caramel crunch, this made them nearly inedible as they were very sloppy and mostly stuck to the inside of the wrapper. Overall, I would highly recommend this program and the Tysons Corner staff to anyone looking for a successful diet program. Highly satisfied!! :)

I lost 18 lbs. in 10 weeks. The program is extremely expensive and if you haven’t completed the program the cost for me was prohibitive.

I went to EMP because my eating had gotten way out of hand. I had heard the commercials on WMAL so I called. The staff are very friendly. Danielle was especially helpful. I signed up for 2 months and lost 22 lbs. I was not hungry. The best part is that I learned what to eat to feel satisfied but not put on pounds instead still lose. It has been 4 months later now and I lost another 10 pounds! I do think it is the first program that helped me really change the way I eat for the rest of my life. Thank you EMP!

I really appreciate Meg K. and all the info she gives me when I am there for my weigh-ins. She is extremely knowledgeable in all that she offers. I will say however that the only only reason I did not give 5 stars is because of some of the foods for my morning snack are cushed and not edible because a lot of the filling in the bars are stuck to the wrapping. Also, there is some slight confusion on some of the allowed protiens per day and veggies. Other than that, I am down 25lbs and loving this program.

The staff is so knowledgeable and friendly! I love EMP 180! I lost 17 pounds and at age 41 I'm in the best shape of my life. I love the ability to go get a body composition check any time I want and meet with my coaches to make sure i'm staying on track since I've graduated. I highly recommend this program!

EMP 180 was the only place/method that worked for me to drop the weight I accumulated after I got into my fifties. If you follow the suggestions and do the work, you’ll get the results.
