I was on the Optifast diet for a little over three months, and have lost at least 25 pounds. Not only did I shed the weight, but my blood chemistry has dramatically changed for the better. For example, my cholesterol went from 261...to 195! And my LDL for the same period went from 174 to 119. Absolutely amazing. I cannot thank you enough for your help and understanding.

I may sound shallow, but I am feeling so much better, inside and out! My stomach always made me feel uncomfortable! It was hard to go up the stairs or bend to put on my shoes. I was always afraid someone would think I was pregnant! Now I can go somewhere and be happy to see someone I haven't seen in a long time or I can take a picture without someone in front of me to hide my double chin! I feel much more comfortable in my skin now! I have become much more confident and outgoing! I love going to the office! Everyone is very professional, attentive and caring! It has really become my home away from home! Read More...Natasha G.Age 40
Years ago, people asked if I was pregnant. My stomach was so big! I was so upset and couldn't stop crying about it. Dr. Melamed and her staff recommended ILipo and Apollo. My stomach is narrower and flatter. When ILipo Ultra came, it helped even more. I weigh more now than I did, but instead of people asking me if I'm pregnant, some people tell me I'm tiny!

I came in 6 weeks before leaving for my daughter's wedding hoping to look refreshed and slim. Thanks to the weekly vitamin shot, i-lipo & apollo treatments I lost 10 pounds in the places I wanted to (tummy, thighs and back). The Ultherapy treatment on my eyes was remarkable and left me looking refreshed. The wedding is over and I am continuing my treatments. I feel fabulous about my results. I'm looking forward to trying many other treatments that are offered in the future. Read More...Nina C.Age 40
I was told about Dr. Melamed and her diabetes and weight management program and felt that it was what I needed. With her help, monitoring, and training me on a new way of eating and more exercise I have great results. I have gone from a 40-42 waist to a 36 waist. I am actually considering going on another skiing trip with the guys this coming february. That would not have been possible in the past. Read More...Blake M. Age 55
I was on the Optifast diet now for a little over three months and have lost at least twenty five pounds. Not only did I shed the weight, but my blood chemistry has dramatically changed for the better. For example, my cholesterol went from 261 on January 16, 2013 to 195 on May 30,2013! My LDL for the same time period went from 174 to 119. Absolutely amazing. I cannot thank you enough for your help and understanding. Also, as you know, I no longer have to take a blood pressure medication or the other medications I was on as well. I am no longer a candidate for the statin drug my doctor recommended. I am elated by this news beyond words. My primary physician would like me to stay on some sort of program with you, indefinitely. However, the only problem I have now is trying to keep those size 16s up around my waist. Read More...Christina M.
I was told by my ex-husband who is a physician that I had gained too much weight. No it wasn't meant to be mean, he was worried for our kids. He referred me to Dr. Melamed and I looked on the internet for possible treatments. Most of the ads mentioned “obesity”. I thought I'm not that fat! I went in for a consultation and started the Optifast that night. I began in the end of march and by the end of May I was about 40 pounds lighter! Read More...Anastasia FAge 68
