I only started the program a week ago, but I have already lost approximately 10 lbs. The difference that I noticed with this program compared to others, is that much attention goes into blood work and body composition. When I met with Dr. Tague, he was very attentive. I told Dr. Tague that I wanted to lose 50 lbs, and he told me that was too much! First time I have ever had that happen with a weight loss program. Also, Dr. Tague's staff is extremely friendly and helpful.
