I have been on Metabolic twice - once 20 years ago and 15 years ago because I didn't keep up the sensible eating plan and started to slip further and further. So thank God Metabolic was there for the two times. I thoroughly believe and can attest Metabolic works. Question not about how it works but what it does with the help and caring experience of the people who work there. I lost 8 pounds and have only been on the program 2 weeks. I quit smoking 2 days after starting Metabolic, where as you usually gain around 10 pounds and I have been holding my own thanks to Metabolic. Connie was my counselor at Metabolic and guided me through this process. She has made the transition smooth, by explaining things in detail and answering all my questions. She has helped me make the right choices on my order. I know they care about my well being as much as I do. I can't wait to get back on this proven program that I love.
