I had let my weight creep up 15 pounds the last ten years. I’d lose a few pounds and put it right back on. The program was not difficult for me. I enjoyed my weekly appointments as the entire staff is great. The food provided was satisfying and tasted good. Dr. Porter’s creative visualization relaxation massages were very helpful and encouraging. The whole program has given me the tools and commitment to keep the weight off and live as a ‘naturally thin’ person the rest of my life!
I was at a crossroads in my health. I was suffering from foot and knee pain to the point I couldn’t walk without limping. My dreams of trekking somewhere fantastic and skiing with my grand twins were fading. The doctors said I had inflammation and needed to avoid sugar, RIGHT! I am a sugar addict and was unable to comply with the suggestion. I saw my friend and commented on her weight loss. She told me about PHD and she shared that her pain had subsided after 3 weeks on the program. I made the phone call. I’ve been trying to lose 20 pounds for 20 years! Dr. Lucas and her excellent staff made it possible and fun. I appreciate the precise plan, the eating out guide, recipes, product ideas and the weekly educational tools that have helped me change my mind as well as my body for the long term. One of the most beneficial aspects of the program is the “aftercare.” Dr. Lucas encourages me to weigh in every couple of weeks. Sometimes I find myself slipping back into old habits, like eating chocolate! Instead of feeling shame and going into denial, I go in and pay the $20 facility use fee. I redirect back to my good habits when I listen to tapes, use the plate, get “a pep talk” from staff and soak up motivation just from being in the PHD environment. I want to be thin and healthy for life. PHD is there to support me after I have achieved success. Thank you PHD for giving me my health and my dreams back!
