Had a great experience here for two years! The women who runs this place - Jeannie Johnson- is a wonderful woman! I had a great experience for about two years here.... I lost a ton of weight and learned so much about nutrition through the counseling sessions. It is a bit expensive, but it was worth it for me to get back on track and lose some weight after I had gained a ton after college. Jeannie is one of the most supportive women I've ever met and she is a blast to be around! She helps get at the root of why you overeat with healthy alternatives. Yes, there are shakes involved, but they are meant to be in conjunction with your meals and not meal replacements.
