“Over the past 25 years, I’ve been on many diets, ranging from various over-the-counter diet pills to fad diets you see and read about on TV. Sometimes the weight dropped off for a bit, but then it would come back and make itself at home, often with a bit more weight as a gentle reminder that I failed.

“My husband asked me to join him at The Hernried Center, and being at my heaviest at 296 lbs. (compliments of back surgery), I was willing to give it a try. I was a bit nervous and overwhelmed at first, but within a few weeks, everything started to fall into place. Seeing immediate results in the first week alone motivated me to continue.

“Today, I’m at 178 lbs. and I feel great! I’m confident the knowledge I’ve learned over the past year will help me keep the weight off. Tessa, Carmelita and Janine were with me the entire time and were available to answer all my questions and talk through my hang-ups. Christian and Loren helped me through and gave me advice on exercise and how to keep my back safe from injury.

“The Hernried Center is a no-judgment zone. The behavioral health educators and exercise physiologists are there for you and will help you get back on track if unexpected life and work events happen. Joining the program was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

I lost 60 pounds in 7 months, feel amazing, and am so much healthier. The amount of education and support I’ve received on diet, nutrition, and exercise has been amazing. Being part of The Hernried Center’s program has been a life-changing experience.”

“The Hernried Center has been a life-altering experience for me. I have been dieting since I was 17 years old. I had a few successes, but they all resulted in the well-known yo-yo cycle. I was talking with my endocrinologist at Sutter Health about my health, PCOS and weight-loss when she recommended The Hernried Center. She said all of her patients swear by it and that I should give it a shot. I was so hesitant because I thought it was going to be a program where I’d be hungry all day and suffer. I was so wrong! The minute I walked into the Roseville office, I felt at ease. The ladies at the front desk are so helpful and kind and compliment you throughout your journey! The medical team is excellent. Dr. Tomlin was amazing and listened to all of my concerns about weight-loss and PCOS, and he even went the extra mile by looking into my labs and ordering extra ones just to see where I stood.

“Starting the program and having my body get used to the meal replacements was challenging at first, but I quickly adapted and the weight started to fall off! I wasn’t hungry, and if I ever was, the one thing I was always told was to eat. Being hungry to lose weight is not something The Hernried Center teaches! When I felt I had reached a plateau, I was actually told that I might need to eat more! The behaviorists are so understanding, and I’ve always felt like I could ask them anything. I have been in situations where I have been out of town and stuck with diet questions, or feeling down about my success, and they were right there to assure me that a) I wasn’t alone and I’m on the right track, and b) this is a lifestyle change and there will be ups and downs. I am turning 25 at the end of the year and this is by far the best birthday present I could have received. Now that I have achieved my goal, I know I am not done with The Hernried Center. The Compass program is something I’m so excited to be part of, especially since I will be moving out of the country. The accountability and advice makes me comfortable and confident that I will maintain my weight-loss.”
