Before I met Dr. Syverain, I was wearing size 24 clothes and really did not feel good about myself. Ten months later and 100 pounds lighter, I am now wearing a size 12! I could not be happier or healthier. The program was simple and easy without counting calories. Thank you for my life changing experience.

I am feeling great now that I am down 25 pounds and wearing clothes that actually fit! Never thought I would be this excited to weigh myself. The staff and physicians at the diet clinic were helpful and for that I am very grateful.
Pedro G., Age 27

Dr. Syverain’s 3-Step Nutritional Program was simple and did not put all those restrictions that are normally associated with a weight loss program. I am no longer stressed, I feel good, sexier. I have more energy and I don’t have a lot of cravings. I would definitely let other people know about this diet plan. The B12 shots were also a big plus.
