The Dr. Bernstein diet works. It's incredibly motivating to see the pounds melt away. You'll see and feel the difference right away, keeping you excited and motivated all the way to your goal weight. That's why our patients stick with it, lose the weight and become happier, healthier people.
We use a unique combination of a low-calorie diet of regular grocery store foods, behaviour modification, counselling, education, and medical supervision to achieve healthy and rapid success in our patients. Vitamin and mineral supplements help keep you feeling well and supply nutrients that you might not get because you're on a low-calorie diet. Of course, full compliance with the diet and program is essential to produce dramatic results.
We never use diet pills, appetite suppressants or surgery. And although exercise has numerous benefits, it is not required in order to be successful on our program. We encourage exercise when you are physically able.
Our unique medically-supervised program has been clinically shown to break down fat faster than normal, releasing stored energy and food value at a rate of up to ¾ lb of fat per day.* Our patients lose fat tissue that has mainly been stored in problem areas like the waist, hips and thighs. Our patients do not become gaunt or shallow in their facial areas.
With our medical supervision, generally our patients do not experience hunger, fatigue or rebound weight gain while following the weight loss and maintenance programs correctly.
For over 40 years, the Bernstein Diet & Health Clinics have used the weight loss program developed by Dr. Stanley K. Bernstein, M.D., General Practitioner, to help people solve their weight problems. Our specially-trained team of doctors and nurses can help you lose weight, improve your health and regain your energy, vitality and confidence.
Our expertise and reputation for long-lasting results has earned us the trust of many other physicians who refer their own patients to us, and who are often patients themselves.
As excess weight contributes to or causes health complications, it is important that trained professionals supervise your weight loss progress. Our staff of specially-trained doctors and nurses are uniquely qualified to manage your health-related issues during weight loss and to monitor your progress and help keep you on track and committed.
We can reduce or eliminate your need for medications to control associated medical conditions such as diabetes, high cholesterol, hypertension, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea and many others. These and many other illnesses improve with weight loss.
The key to long-term successful weight loss is making a healthy lifestyle change. We understand that you may have struggled with your weight for a long time and have experienced frustration when other diets haven't worked. We're here to help you make the changes and reinforce the good habits that will lead to a healthy weight and to support you as you change your life. We've helped hundreds of thousands of people through their weight loss, and we're here for you too.
The Bernstein Diet Program is 100% MEDICALLY SUPERVISED. On our program, you will be overseen and treated only by specially trained doctors and nurses who are experienced with the Bernstein weight loss program and who have worked with many patients just like you. We can perform treatments that other non-medical centres aren’t qualified to do – such as blood tests, diagnosing and treating illness and disease, and prescribing, administering and adjusting medications. With your approval we will also keep your family physician up-to-date on your progress.
Even if you don't have any other associated medical problems, gaining and losing weight can affect many of the body's functions, so it is vital to have your progress overseen by medical professionals to ensure that you feel as good as you look.
Many other weight loss programs only want to sell you pre-fabricated foods, frozen dinners or meal-replacement products. The problem with these other programs is that you learn very little about the foods your body needs and very little about how to make a long-term healthy lifestyle change.
One of the most valuable things you will gain from our program is a better understanding of food and what's right for your optimal health. You'll learn about what foods you can enjoy and what to avoid. The Dr. Bernstein diet is based on a healthy diet of regular foods that you can buy in a grocery store. We'll arm you with a complete menu of recommended foods as well as Dr. Bernstein's Recipe Book, Diet Manual and other helpful information. You'll enjoy nutritious, fresh food packed with the vitamins and minerals your body needs to be healthy. You'll learn how to read labels, how to order in restaurants, how to cook healthier and how to manage yourself and your weight long-term.
