Weight Loss Boston

A revolutionary program to help you lose weight via acupressure.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

Weight Loss Boston is new and holistic way of losing weight that uses the The Sadkhin Method, named after Dr. Sadkhin who identified 16 hunger control pressure points located just behind the ears. By placing pressure on these points, you stimulate the regions of the brain that control appetite, thereby reducing hunger.

The program, which involves placing gentle pressure on this points through the Chinese technique of acupressure, also includes a strict eating plan that helps you lose 5% to 10% of your body weight in the first ten days. You can expect to lose up to 25 pounds in your first month of the program.

Currently, this program is only offered in Boston.

PRO
  • May help you to lose weight and control hunger
  • Includes a strict but healthy diet
  • Acupressure has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain and promote relaxation
  • Weight loss is rapid and presumably safe
CON
  • Program only offered in Boston
  • Strict eating plan may promote feelings of diet deprivation
  • Science has yet to prove that acupressure can result in weight loss
  • No fitness guidelines provided
DIET and NUTRITION

The Sadkhin Method involves consuming a very strict and low-calorie diet of fruit, vegetables and whole milk. If you are lactose-intolerant, then a full-fat milk alternative such as rice, soy or oat milk is also allowed. Coffee, diet soda and other artificial or other stimulants are prohibited.

When you are hungry, you are instructed to apply gentle pressure to the various Sadkhin acupressure points behind your ear with a pair of small steel balls. The intention behind this technique is that you release certain appetite-suppressing effects in your body that make it possible for you to limit your food intake and not feel the annoying pangs of hunger.

When you go in for our initial consultation, you will be given thorough instructions on how to apply the technique, what to eat and when to eat.

EXERCISE

There are no exercise guidelines to follow.

CONCLUSION

Weight Loss Boston, or the Sadkhin Method, is a revolutionary way of dieting that uses acupressure and a low-calorie diet to help you safely lose weight in a short period of time. While the science behind using acupressure points for weight loss is still forming, acupressure has been shown to promote relaxation and relieve pain for a number of health conditions.

Even though the diet is strict, you are expected to not be hunger as long as you closely follow the acupressure routine.

Unfortunately, this program is only offered in Boston.

This a starvation way of dieting. Waste of money, waste of energy and totally useless.

I have been looking for a way to lose extra weight. I felt like it was a mountain that I did not know how to climb or how long it would take to reach the summit. A friend mentioned others had success with this program so I took the plunge and started a few weeks ago. What I can tell you is this: if you follow this plan you will lose weight faster than any other diet out there. Its all natural. Its effective. You will see incredible results within the first ten days. It has been the catalyst I have been searching for. I now have the tools neccessary to iimprove my dietary lifestyle permanently.

The program really works. You do have to follow the instructions.

If you follow the diet according to DR. Nash's instructions for 45 days after you loose the weight your body will reset the weight point to the new weight and it is easier to main. That does not mean that if you go to your old unhealthy food plan (portion size more then anything else) that you will maintain your loss.

Started this diet in early January after getting a 1/2 price Groupon. Have been trying every diet, and reading every book for several years....I have a VERY slow metabolism. ANYWAY...I have been working with Dr. Nash at Weight Loss Boston for 5 weeks and am down 16 pounds and minus 6 inches! I am definitely a fan!

I joined this program 3 years ago and in 3 months changed from size 16 to size 8.



Since then when I am not disciplined about my food choices and portions, I surely gain a few pounds.



Before it gets out of hand, (again) I go back to the program and lose the extra weight within a couple of weeks. I do not want to go back to where I was before the program.



The best diet I have ever tried and the last program I will ever use.

Nina, did you use Sadkhin or another bead program?

Accuweight, based in NY, assures that if you stick to their plan, which includes maintenance (5 days off/2 days on...only if needed), then you can stabilize your weight after significant loss.

The prospect is daunting to think of some people regaining all their weight, but two schools of thought come to mind. One is that you can't go back to eating unhealthily, and two, overweight people always struggle with weight even after loss because your body remembers the set weight point of being heavy.

Accuweight, as well as Sadkhin, I'm sure, claim to remedy the set weight issue by instructing the hypothalamus to reset the base weight at the lower level after loss, so that is why I wondered which program you use, because some bead accupressure programs for weight loss, do actually help with hunger and weight loss, but do nothing about maintenance.

I did this program last winter and lost 22 pounds in about 3.5 weeks. I didn't believe in holistic medicine before I met Dr. Bespalko and I'm not sure I do now, but all I know is that I wasn't hungry and for the first time in my life I could stick to a diet. The beads can be uncomfortable if you rub them too hard, but it reminds you to stick to the program!!!!
