There are a lot of mixed Dr Bernstein weight loss clinic reviews online. There are firstly tons of great weight loss success stories, but most of the reviews found online are complaints. (Keep in mind, that most people who take the time to write reviews online are pissed off. The complaints that Dr. Bernstein weight loss clinic gets are about either the staff or gaining weight back after the diet.
As per the complaints about the staff being rude, I have yet to experience this. The staff at my Dr Bernstein clinic in Whitby, Ontario have all been lovely to me. I haven’t been scolded for not losing enough weight or slipping up ever. I like some better than others, but they have all been super motivating, helpful and friendly. Being held accountable is what helps me on the days that I’m stressed and just want to eat junk food.
Dr Bernstein Weight Loss Clinic reviews tend to talk about friends of friends who did the diet once and gained all the weight and more back. Unfortunately, most people gain weight back after a diet because they don’t think long term. I also found some success stories of people who maintained their weight loss online after the Dr Bernstein diet. I think there is more of an emphasis on gaining weight back on this diet specifically because the weight loss itself is so rapid. So I guess if you’re looking for a quick fix, it’s probably not the right one for you, as you’ll gain the weight back pretty quickly. But if you’re determined to make some big life changes, I wouldn’t worry about these complaints.
Lastly, there is a lot of controversy over how low calorie the Bernstein diet is. I’m not a doctor or nutritionist, so I can’t comment on the calorie intake, but I feel good on it. I’m not dizzy or starving. I have moments where I wish I could drink wine or beer and eat nachos, but those are mostly cravings based and not actual hunger cues. The only thing I’m worried about with how fast you lose weight on Dr. Bernstein’s diet is lose skin, so I’ve been making sure to drink tons of water.
In conclusion, my review so far is that I’ve had a very positive experience, I feel great physically and the staff have been lovely to me. The fact that the calorie count is pretty low did worry me, but so does me being overweight. If I was starving all the time and felt weak, I would not have continued with the diet program.
I hope this helps you in your search for Dr Bernstein Weight Loss Clinic reviews. I guess mine is more a review of the reviews. I wanted to share honestly because I was very skeptical of going to a Dr B clinic at first due to so much controversy in the comments and reviews of the diet. But, I’m really glad I did, I feel healthier and I’m dropping weight steadily and continuing too after my 8 weeks there!
