I was on this for 6 months and lost 45 pounds. The protein supplements taste really good. I did not really care for some of the entrée meal replacements, but they are not necessary to lose weight. You can substitute another supplement instead. I felt really great and had a lot more energy. I did exercise between 30 minutes and 2 hours per day. Sometimes this was just walking.

Effectiveness
If you follow the plan, you will lose weight. I lost 45 pounds in 6 months. The staff are really helpful on encouragement and helping you over any hurdles. I dropped weight quickly at first but then it slowed down. If you do not lose any or very little weight in a 2 week period they will put you on what they call protein days. This seems to jump start you again if you hit a plateau.

Side Effects
I cannot think of any side effects from this diet other than if you don't keep following the plans you will gain all your weight back.

Ease of Use
You get to eat all your own foods. You do have to weigh foods at first, but you learn pretty quickly on the amount of each serving. You can eat just about anything on this diet and still lose weight.

Staff was great and my wife and I lost weight and met our goals. My disappointment is with the lack of support from the office manager concerning insurance reimbursement. They make it clear that they do not file insurance claims, but they also do not assist with their patients attempt for reimbursement either. They "bundle"their services and have 1 singular charge. After many wasted hours between my insurance company and Medi-Weightloss, I gave up. My insurance company indicated reimbursement for some CPT charges, but Medi-Weightloss refused to separate charges. Makes you wonder about the honesty of their services. Probably cost my wife and I several hundreds of dollars in reimbursement. I reached out to Dr Danny Shaban who is one of the owners of Medi-Weightloss in Glen Allen, VA but received no response. Very dissappointing.

    Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

    This is the worst program! First I had a lady tell me to add my extra calories such as jello & pickles into my protein calories! Then I was trying to tell them about concerns I have, such as, having pains in my stomach, I had another anxiety attack, plus I feel extremely sluggish, I'm constantly sleeping, don't feel like exercising. My boyfriend actually told me that I'm irritatable & depressed! I explained to them that I'm so nauseous that I can't eat & they got an attitude because of my concerns! Of course they said, I was wrong, & I didn't know what I was talking about, but I've been eating healthy for a long time & I know my body better than anyone else! They kept forcing there website telling me to check there recipes & I couldn't eat anything on there!! I just learned they had different phases! Also the guide that was given to me didn't have certain items on & they had to add them. So I asked if there was anything that's not on there that should be on there. She says no! I explained what about turkey pepperoni it wasn't on the list but apparently I'm allowed to have it! This diet doesn't give you much anyway wouldn't you think they would put it on there??? However I was told that should be common sense!!! The coach is telling me what I can't have yet she walks in with a Diet Coke but I'm not allowed to have that!! Also When explaining my concerns, she got irritated & said "you need to leave my office"!! It was almost like she knew I was calling her out & couldn't handle it! Then she had the nerve to tell me she had a masters in RN... Her business card says LPN! If you have a masters you are an MSN not an LPN!! After she wouldn't listen I asked for corporate! She changed her tune & wouldn't give me the number so I waited till I left & called corporate. The franchise manager is super nice! Unlike this clinic that I was going to. My laugh was made fun of & was asked if I liked the city, I said no this lady got rude when I said that! This clinic is horrible!!!!!

      Not a good experience

      By 

      from Shelton, CT

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      I personally did not have a good experience with this program. I am the type that can eat everything but just need to cut back. This program really limited me on what I could eat and actually made me hungrier. I was upset because I was practically starving myself yet I was not taking off as much weigh as I thought I should. I did like that the food you can pick from is everyday food (meats) whereas so many of these weigh loss program you have to purchase their food and its nasty. I found that the time I went to go weigh in I found the staff to not be as friendly as I hoped. They were not as supportive as I thought they should be, encouraging me and motivating me. Overall, I would recommend this program to someone who needs to stay away from high fats and grains but if you can eat that stuff just in moderation this is not the diet for you. My experience might be different from someone elses but overall I did not like this diet for myself.

      from Wesley Chapel, FL

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      I love this program. I have seen results with other diets that eliminate carbohydrates and sugar so I wanted to give this a try. The medication that they give you along with the shot of B-12, really helps control hunger and increase your energy. I have so much energy when I am active with this program. The diet requires you to only have 500 calories, which I thought would be really hard, but it really was not at all. The medication makes you not hungry at all. I am currently in a maintenance stage and only go in once a month to weigh and update my file. This program really is the one that works!

      Effectiveness
      This program worked really well for me and I saw results very quickly. The medication helped with hunger and did not make me feel too hyper or any side effects. It actually gave me more energy.

      Ease of Use
      This program is very easy to follow, they have you eat 500 calories a day and give you a list of exactly what you can and cant eat. They sell products in the office that go along with the diet to help control cravings and hunger.

      Amazing results

      By 

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      This was by far the best diet I have ever followed. I started a few years ago and lost 35 pounds. I went back a few months ago because I still have another 15 pounds I would like to lose, and I was shocked to see that in 2 years off of the program I had only gained back 3 pounds.
      The doctors and nurses at the centers are so nice and very helpful. I got the HcG shots, and the B10 shots also.
      The first week was by far the hardest to get through, but they have changed it since the first time I went and it is not as hard as it was the first time. It is very restricting during the first week, but I never felt hungry in the least. I kept my water bottle with me at all times and just kept reminding myself how much better I would feel when I lost the weight.
      They carry their own products, that I do have to admit are quite yummy compared to many diet foods out there.
      The staff was very helpful in guiding me and encouraging me to keep up the good work. It is very motivating to have such a support team backing you up.

      Ease of Use
      I gave this an 8 as it is tough in the beginning, but it does get easier once you get used to what you can and what you shouldn't have.

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      This is one of the best diet programs I've ever tried. It helps you make the lifestyle change, it's not just another diet that leaves you gaining all the weight back. The diet itself isn't really a diet, it's more just a healthier way of an eating habits. It's great; it's just how you're supposed to lose weight, and going through this program allows you to have a supportive group through the whole process. It really is great and it works fantastically. You can lose weight while being happy and full. They also offer an exercise program, which is very helpful when losing weight. It's mostly in the diet, yes, but exercise is a part of it, and going through this program ensures that you will have a supportive group with you all the while and you will be able to finish your weight loss goal.

      Effectiveness
      You can really get effects with this program. You have people supporting and encouraging you, and it works out in the end.

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      I had struggled with my weight for years but after having my son I had skyrocketed to 202.4 lbs. which is definitely considered obese for my 5'2" frame. I visited the weight loss clinic here in Baton Rouge Louisiana. Within the last 3 months of being on the appetite suppressants (Adipex) they had prescribed I am currently down to 179.8 lbs. which is a whopping 22.6 lb weight loss. I extremely happy with my results but I have the admit the (Adipex) contains caffeine and you are warned before you start use that for the first few days it may cause jitters, you are also warned that if you take the suppressant too late you may be up all night. The staff at the Weight Loss Clinic are always professional and nice and even if the appetite suppressant is not for you they have various different offers to help you on your weight loss journey. I am happy with my results can't wait to see where I am by December which is my planned time to stop the suppressants. I plan to maintain the loss I have changed a lot of my eating habits as well which can also be credited for some of my weight loss.

      Medi helps you lose weight quickly and make the lifestyle change

      By 

      from Orlando, FL

      Comments about Medi Weight Loss Clincs:

      Medi Weight loss was a miracle for me. I had gained 80 pounds over a few years and my doctors were concerned for my health. I was sent to the Medi CLinic in Orlando on Sand Lake Rd. When you first go the diet seems very strict and like it will be hard to adjust to but with the diet plan and appetite suppressents it is actually very easy. I never imagined I would lose weight so fast...about 55 pounds!! The staff is fantastic which I think makes a big difference. The doctor is so caring and doesn't pressure you to do anything. She really wants to learn about your lifestyle and incorporate things like going out to eat, etc so that you can maintain your weight after losing. I recommend anyone at least do a consultation if you are considering losing weight.
