I have been obese for more than 10 years and, well, no diet was useful for me. Some time ago I learned about NJ Diet and it all changed. I learned about their Fat Loss program and the result was fantastic. I lost 25 pounds and I continue losing weight now. The best thing is that you don't feel hungry at all, so it's surely not like any other diet where you have to basically starve to lose some weight. It doesn't harm you and you lose weight in a healthy manner!
I started this program with great skepticism and have finished it with unabashed joy. I was 293 lbs in the beginning. I did Round 1 and lost 65 lbs in 59 days. I then went over a full year without gaining a pound. Unfortunately, I didn't follow the caloric intake and put back on 25lbs. I just completed Round 2 and now weigh 206lbs. The second round loss was 51 lbs in 43 days!!!I no longer take Hypertensive medications and was prediabetic. I am now totally normal there. I suffered from I.B.S. for over 40 years. It has totally disappeared. I am giving you all before and after pictures. Feel free to contact me for any information you might want. Thanks to Dr. Turovets, I have my life back and smile every minute of every day!!!
All i can say is DO NOT DO IT. Save yourself a couple of hours. I went. Was assessed. And was ready to whip out my checkbook. Until they wanted me to sign a document stating i will not give a negative review if I'm not happy. If i did give a negative review i would have to pay the 3 times the $2142.45 in restitution to them. If i didn't sign they wouldn't accept me. This is a ridiculous scam. I am beside myself. Wow.
They were great! It absolutely works! I lost the guaranteed 25 pounds extremely fast in two weeks. However, I felt I wasn't paid attention to after that, so I felt discouraged by the end of the program. My second weigh in happened after the program was supposed to be over (they couldn't fit me into their jam-packed schedule) and the girls didn't seem to know what to do with me. Finally, at my "final" weigh in, they gave me my instructions on how to gradually start eating again and sent me on my way. The supplements and drops they provide seem to be key as without them I've gained back double what I lost with no signs of slowing down, but it's probably my fault. It was good while it lasted!
I'm 41 and I've already lost hope of losing extra weight I gained over the last decade. I tried doing sports and eating healthy but I just don't have enough time to cook for myself and go to the gym. Luckily this center came around. Their diet is just great. Kirsten explained how it works and I was fascinated by how easy it is. I've already lost 30 pounds and I'm still losing weight. SOME extra products are allowed, you can still eat a slice of pizza at the weekend 😉
I am mixed about NJdiet. On the result front: Very happy I got great results. I lost over 40 lbs So this is very important. The results I hoped for I achieved. But. I find the caloric and food combo rules far too restictive and unneeded. I modified many rules and it worked out fine. What i did not like was the expense of the program and customer service. I also do not care for Dr T seemingly confronting honest people for their reviews. That alone makes me lose confidence. If customers can't feel free to comment, that raises a red flag as does. the frequent thinly veiled legal threats I see menltioned in other comments . Once I paid the substantial fee and finished the intro visit and weigh-in visit. (Eg actually started the diet) , I was not contacted by NJDiet. I initiated contact a few times about food items by texting and did get helpful replies. But NJ diet did not check in with me to find out how I was doing. They do not even know I finished and had great success. They also did not return my phone call asking for some information. So, I did get the results I wanted, but the courtesies I would expect for that level of money were lacking.
I finished my program in or about the end of May 2018. At the completion of the program - Day 43, I was down 30 lbs from Day 1 I have now lost a few more pounds but have definitely added muscle. I am working out 5-6 days a week and am training for a half marathon in September. My long run presently is at 8 miles at and I have been able to run 4 miles at an average pace of 8 min and 40 seconds. Before starting this program, I could not run more than 2 miles and had an average pace of approximately 10 minutes and 30 seconds per mile. My cholesterol is at 160 and my triglycerides are at 47. All of my numbers after my last physical exam in June 2018 are fantastic. I look and feel great and have gone from a pants size of 40 to below a 36. My 36s are a little big on me at this point. I have also gone from wearing XL shirts to large and even a medium in certain instances.Admittedly, this is not a cheap program but you get what you pay for. This was well worth it for me.Nothing else was working. This plan really jump started my metabolism and put me back on the road to good health.I have continued to slowly drop weight while adding muscle and have laid off all processed foods, diet sodas and artificial sweeteners, added sugars, bread, potatoes and fried food and really feel fantastic. Thank you NJ Diet!
Very effective program. Lost 20 pounds in a couple of weeks.Structured, quick, straightforward, etc. Highly recommended!
I am forever grateful for hearing the NJ diet segment on the radio about a year ago. I'm a 24 year old female with severe endocrine imbalances and diseases that caused me to gain a tremendous amount of weight. I've tried everything from pre packaged foods, nutritionists, bariatric procedures and tons of exercise and I just couldn't lose the weight. I decided to try nj diet because it was a money back guarantee and I had literally nothing to lose. I've been to both NYC and Long Island locations and both offices are great. The staff is super friendly, knowledgable and answered all my questions. When I was told what I would be eating for 40 days, I knew it was going to be manageable, but hard work. I must say that the 40 days went by so fast and I was able to live my life while dieting and not feel deprived because the results are incredible. I lost 28 pounds in 40 days. I defeated the odds of my endocrine problems and diseases and for once, I was able to lose weight. A special shout out to Dr. T who has literally saved my life for giving me these life long tools to succeed. He replies to all questions I ask in minutes. I can be in the supermarket and ask him a question and I will know right then if I am making the right choice with what I buy. He has been my cheerleader and has been super motivating and helps me calm down when I needed more support The greatest thing about this plan, after your 40 days are done; you have a specific plan of how to keep the weight off. I've completed one round and have another one or two rounds to go I highly recommend this diet and it is WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY!
Today I received a letter in the mail from an attorney on behalf of NJ Diet. The letter threatened to sue me for posting a less than stellar review. My review was nothing malicious. It was factual and unbiased. The Idea that NJ Diet would hire an attorney to SUE ME for posting an honest opinion is UNCONSCIONABLE. This makes me really sad.
This is a stringent and, for me, an expensive diet. At age 72, with my metabolism tanked, I am pleased to say that I lost close to 20 pounds. However, I want to lose more. The diet that I paid for is only 40 days' duration. There is support afterward. I don't know how long that's available, nor have I really asked. I do know that, for the money spent (a HUGE motivator for me), I'm continuing on my own and am confident that I'll lose even more weight. I'm realistic about not regaining my smaller size as a much younger woman. I feel well; my arthritis is less painful than before I began Nuvo; and I truly believe that the new eating habits I've learned are far healthier than my old way of eating. Again, staff is available and is gracious, but more on an as-needed basis than your being urged to come in.... say as often as weekly. I only had two follow up visits after my initial consultations. My final opinion is that ANY SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT LOSS RESTS WITH THE INDIVIDUAL DIETER'S DETERMINATION.Good luck.
Update: I hit my goal of 175 lbs. in July 2017 and have been maintaining it since. I lost 100 lbs. in approximately 120 days. I went from a size 42 waist to a size 32 waist and went from an X-large shirt size to a Medium. I needed to buy a whole new wardrobe of clothes. My joints don't hurt and I have so much energy. I got my life back, I'm so much healthier and am happier than I have been in years! Look for me in the NJ Diet TV commercial. Just get started and good luck to you!
Dr Turvonet read by plea for help and met with me last Tuesday. He will work with me and I will be continuing.
How much does the program cost in total? Do you need to buy proteins, Vitamins and any special equipment?I am schedule for my fist appointment next week. I will like to know how much does a person spend for the first 40 days on the diet
I lost 45 lb and was never hungry ! I followed the plan to the letter. My back and hip pain are gone! I still enjoy food but now I have learned the correct way to eat. I used to be ashamed of the way I looked now people can't believe it's me ! 59 and feeling like I did when I was 30 the only drawback is I need new clothes 🙂 Thank you N.J. Diet !!!
I've been on the program for a week now, and I'm down 17.2 lbs, simply by eating tasty (portion controlled) meals I cook myself and taking very mild supplements which they tailored to my body chemistry!It really works!
I started the NJDiet, 18 days ago at the White Plains, NY office. After my cardiologist warned me that I need to lose weight or my future is bleak, I joined Weight Watchers. After 3 months and a lose of 5 lbs I recently decided to try NJDiet. The process is scientific, professional, safe and natural and I'm happy to report that in 18 days, I lost 19 lbs. My goal is lose around 35 lbs. The cleanse/diet is easy but you must stick to it and not cheat. So nearly halfway through my diet, I'm on track to get to my goal weight. Want to thank Kirsten at NJDiet and Steve K from Long Island for their continued support. Another thing, they are available and will get back to you. I'm at a point where I don't eat when I'm feeling full.To get through the diet because I never met a meal I didn't like, I look to the future when I'll look and feel better. Also looking forward to getting rid of my meds for cholesterol and blood pressure. Thank you Dr. T.
This is the best diet center in New Jersey. The staff is all very knowledgeable and super friendly. It has changed my life. The diet is easy and very effective. I highly recommend this establishment. I am still loosing weight and feel great.
I recently visited one of their clinics and met a Dr. Turovets ("Dr. T") and my gut told me he was a quack. Still, I was eager to discover if there was any truth to his methods and intrigued by his reported use of DNA and customization of programs that would among other things normalize my hormones. I am a 52 year old woman and have noticed its harder to lose weight due to hormones changing. At the free consultation I was weighed on a body composition scale and shown a colorful printout by the good doctor who explained my results indicated that I have the metabolism of a 64 year old and am 'clinically obese'. HOGWASH. I work out 3 days a week and am more fit than most of my friends and neighbors. I would only want to lose 10-15 lbs max and was looking for help after entering peri-menopause. Further I was told I was 'clinically obese'. As the daughter of two physicians (Medical Doctors), I know about a bit about obesity from learning about it from them, and there is no way I fit the clinical criteria. I started to suspect 'fear tactics' at play in his sales pitch for his program. Further afterwards, on purchasing my own body comp scale the results indicated that I was well within normal range for all markers, with lower than average body fat 22% (not the 39.5% reported by Dr T using his scale). I did some additional research as I had begun to suspect that the doctor was also 'doctoring' his web-image and found this link https://www.quora.com/Is-Nuvo-Fat-Loss-formerly-NJ-Diet-legit on Quora, a must read if you are planning on trying this program out. Also, turns out 'Dr.' T a chiropractor (not a medical doctor or MD) and therefore seems to me hardly qualified to run a weight loss program. Further, I noticed at the consultation, that his scale was perched on a flat piece of wood just larger than the bottom of the scale, which sat atop the office carpet. Reading about these scales it's clear they only work if they are on a flat surface unimpeded by any other substrate, and that either way the software varies from scale to scale and readings can be misleading. That day I was so upset about what he had said and decided to research more. I found no scientific study that backs up his program by any reputable authority and I also found Mr. Henderson's note on Quora and read the info in its links to additional info about previous incarnations of this program under different names. Always be skeptical about a firm that changes its name for now apparent reason! I believe the reason his clients lose so much weight fast is the extremely low-carb diet he puts them on, which is neither healthy nor reasonable to expect someone to adhere to long-term. Scientifically though this well known diet is based on legitimate facts, that the body burns the following for energy in this order, carbohydrates-fat-protein, and if you significantly limit your carbs your body will then burn its own body fat before burning protein (or muscle), it is not practical for long term healthy weight loss and maintenance. 'Dr. T's' program is alas, just another adaptation of the low-carb diet we all know so well. Ultimately you will put the weight back on unless you change your diet and exercise habits to achieve healthy long term results. Obesity is big business. Don't be fooled. Do NOT fall prey to this phony program that feeds on the fears and insecurities of folks who have struggled with their weight (most of us!), and women especially who are going through peri-menopause or menopause and experience other natural hormonal changes caused by aging that may effect weight but can be counter-acted by exercise and good nutrition. Instead seek the help of a competent nutritionist and and experienced personal trainer.Read more here:https://www.quora.com/anonymous/8d86925c45714e70b0e4ff71d4608546
This is an update on my previous review. I have only a few days left of my restricted calorie segment of the diet. I have reached my goal and surpassed it by losing 32 pounds so far. This is an amazing system that definitely works. I feel and look great. I will update during the adjustment phase of the program.
