I can't say enough about this program. Reading the posts to date I have a few things to add. It can be costly if you take all of the supplements, but to that I would say what is your health worth to you? I also have had one person that went on the program wanting to do it without supplementation but wholly on her own and she was successful as well as the others that were on the supplement. The difference, was she did not loose as much or as quickly, so the program is customizable. I ran a group in my home with mixed results, the success came from those that followed the program including the detox week and also for the next 5 weeks we eliminated gluten. This all kicks your metabolism into gear to work as it should; most have been abusing our bodies for years and our metabolism just is not working right.
My family has a history of diabetes, I am in my late 50's with a son in college and knew I had to make lifestyle changes. Diets do not work, this is not a diet, it is a lifestyle change. After all, I learned a poor lifestyle over a number of years and it was going to take effort to make this change. It is worth it, it will get your body working effectively. Working to change the obesity epidemic one life at a time.

Great lifestyle to live by. I am 47 years old and in relatively good health. I did need to lose some wieght as the pounds were creeping up on me. My goal was about 30 pounds. I am at 45 pounds in 7 months. I only used the supplements for 30 days. I work out daily, and have built muscle. The inner strenght and overall wellness that I feel is incredible. There is nothing fancy or hard about this lifestyle. You just have to plan and have healthy food on hand. Low glycemic food makes all the difference. Worth living life to its fullest.

First 12 weeks, lost 36 pounds....3 months later, weight loss totaled 72 pounds.

The concept is great. I did not follow their menu/recipes online because it did not support their videos and included pasta and other types of unnecessary carbs that the program recommends weeding out , though it was included in moderation. I probably would have lost this weight anyway. I will say that people at our gym followed the lifestyle and lost the weight without th supplements, but they exercise avidly. I failed miserably with the exercise, and so do not look as good as I might have.

I found this program to be great I lost 40+lbs in 12 weeks WITHOUT TAKING THE SUPPLEMENTS the coach and learning how to eat and the whys are key to this system you just learn how to eat which may surprise you is or may not be what you were taught. If you really want to be healthy and keep the weight off this plan is tor you This ts not a diet or a fad and does not provide shortcuts so you can look good next weekend. it's a lifestyle and once you lose it this way you never want to go back

I did the Transitions program and between May 12 and July 15 I lost 20 lbs and 17 inches. My results are not typical, most of the class actually lost more weight. One young woman who was not overweight but had crummy eating habits actually gained 2 lbs., but her body composition changed drastically and she went down two sizes and was carrying 20 more pounds of muscle than before the program. Remember ... she only gained 2 lbs. Transitions is different in that it's not about weight loss, but it's about fat loss. If I had been more compliant with the suggested exercise (which really wasn't that hard) I would have done better, but even so I was thrilled with the results. Just changing to a low glycemic way of eating alone got me results I despaired of ever having, since I had tried every diet imaginable.

This is a wonderful way to live, if you are "too busy" to take care of your meals and supplements, you may want to loosen up your schedule for whats important. A little thought and planning ahead is really not so difficult considering the high stakes. In comparison to Dr visits, drugs & their side effects, and feeling run down, this lifestyle is cheap...I dont know about you, but I place a very high value on my health!

Actually, the diet is completely customizable, with supplements adjusted to each individual's specific weight challeneges and tailored to accelerate success. It has a highly systemized plan, and the MOST important component, a trained, certified weight management coach to provide on-going support and education on healthful eating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. It fits well into my hectic schedule because I have made the decision to change the habits that got me where I am now like being to busy to plan my meals, make good food choices, living stressed out, etc. Transitions works, when you decide to work it! Immediate and lasting results don't lie!!!

I just finished doing Transitions a few weeks ago and I'm am ecstatic not just with the weight loss but my overall change in the way I feel - I'm no longer tired all the time anymore, which is amazing to me. Having tried Weight Watchers in the past, this truly teaches you how to get off processed foods and change your habits, which is key not to just losing weight, but getting healthy overall.

I have only been doing this for seven days. I just finished the week-long detox with the supplements and have already lost 11 pounds!! I am excited to add more foods back into my diet slowly and keep losing weight. The detox week was difficult, but this diet is truly a lifestyle change and really works so far.

I have been part of the Transitions program for 6 weeks now and really am not sure it is as good as it appears. It is a very costly program (It has cost over $500 in the 6 weeks I have been on the program) and it does not fit into an "on the go" lifestyle. Taking 5 pills before each meal and liquid supplements in the afternoon, do not fit into work or play. it does teach you to eat well, but most concepts are common sense. Eat a lot of vegetables and some lean meat...
I am going to give it the full benefit of the doubt, but it is not the diet for all.

Great, healthy plan. Lots of support, and really makes me think about my choices.

This is not just a diet, You are taught how to change behavior. This truly is a Lifestyle. You learn to eat healthy foods and with the one on one coaching available it's pretty motivating. These coaches keep you up when you get down.

The supplements really work, with no side effects. They are all natural.

I would strongly recommend this system for anyone who wants to be healthy, regardless of their weight. My husband did not take any supplements, but changed his behavior because he started eating what I cooked. He dropped 10 pounds, without trying, and we are both very pleased with the results. This will keep you fit and healthy for a lifetime I'm sure. I lost over 75 lbs on this plan! Try it...

I've lost over 35 lbs within 4 months, decreased 10% body fat, and went from waist size 38 to 34. Everything about this program is scientific based and geared towards health. Fat loss is a natural side-effect of living healthier.

I started the Transitions plan almost 2 years ago. I have lost 60 pounds. It is not a diet it really is about changing the way you eat. I would reccommend this plan to everyone. It works!!!!!

From Day 1, I felt great on this plan. The weight loss has been slow, steady, and painless, and mostly around the middle, where I want to lose it. I plan to stay on this healthy plan forever, even after I've achieved my goals, to make sure I maintain them.
