Testimonials:

“Hi my name is John C Smith, and I am a member of the Lean Md program. I started the program in January 2021. The program has been a life changing experience for me and my family. The Lean MD products was a game changer for me. When I started the program I weighed in at 290lbs. I reached my goal of 250 lbs in April 2021. Dr. Golikieri and her staff were very helpful and supportive. The Lean MD program requires discipline, so you have to want to do it for your self. It’s worth it . I did it for myself, but my family is also reaping the benefits of my weight loss. Also my type 2 diabetes is under control and my blood pressure is at an all time low. My primary care physician has adjusted my meds and hopefully he can start taking me off some of the medications soon.”

“I’ve been over weight for as long as I can remember… at least since early grade school. My weight has always fluctuated over the years and I’ve tried nearly every diet out there. Now in my mid 40’s, I was determined to take control over my health. I wanted to live a long and healthy life and enjoy every minute of my future. In 2019 I began talking to my primary care physician about weight loss options. On my own, I attempted to take control myself and was mildly successful, then the pandemic hit and it all went down the drain. In the summer of 2020 my physician started me on a proper plan. I now take recommended vitamins and supplements; I portion out my foods, eating 3 meals a day with 3 small snacks, every 2-3 hours; I get up and walk on breaks at work; I’ve got a treadmill routine consisting of a one hour walk five days a week; my husband and I take a local trail walk once a week; I’ve incorporated a light weight lifting routine; I have weekly meetings with my weight loss coach, which helps me stay on track and make adjustments to my routines as necessary; and I use different sources for tracking my calorie, carbohydrate, and water intake. To date, I’ve lost over 75 pounds in just over 8 months with a medically supported plan. I feel happier, more energized, determined, and most of all confident in my future.”

“Last Spring, I had major surgery, which was successful, and also resulted in a weight loss of approximately 25 pounds. I now had a 25 pound “head start” in my goal to lose weight, but I had tried to lose weight on my own in the past with terrible long-term results, so I knew I needed a system with structure that was also medically proven and physician supervised. I began looking around for a local in-person option and I found the “LeanMD” program run by Dr Golikeri.  The in-person instruction on what foods to eat and what not to eat, how to get your metabolism into ketosis so that weight loss is more rapid and most importantly, how to keep the weight from returning.  Dr. Golikeri has also sponsored several virtual cooking classes to show you different foods that are good for you and your diet and get you out of your comfort zone. I have been very pleased with my weight loss results with the LeanMD program.  It is not a miracle pill, rather a system that with steady work, will help you lose weight.”

“In April 2020, I started working with Dr. Golikeri and her staff. I had been limiting some carbs and had tried multiple different diets but mostly would yo-yo with the same few pounds. I had been logging food and counting calories but had never counted carbs. The first couple months, I worked on tracking carbs as well and lost 10 pounds. In July, I started the Lean MD program officially. Something about this program just worked for me. I started seeing changes consistently on the scale, with how my clothes fit and how I felt in general. This success kept me motivated and on track. The weekly check-ins have been helpful and also kept me accountable. I had never done anything this formal before for weight loss. I also was working the program with my Mom. We were able to support each other, get excited about trying new recipes together and only had healthy choices in our home. I try to find a new recipe each week. I had to work hard for the last 5 pounds to come off, but as of the first week of June 2021, I have reached my goal weight! In total, I have lost a total of 54.6 pounds. I feel so much healthier; physically, emotionally and mentally. Thank you to the whole staff for helping me reach my goal and for all of your support in this journey!” Shannon

“Lean MD is a wonderful program under the supervision of Dr. Golikeri and her staff. My daughter and I decided to take this journey together and together have lost 50 pounds each. I am down 3 sizes in my clothes and my lab work has improved. This program is easy to follow and the support is amazing. Weekly visits, documenting food intake, and trying new recipes and the key to success. If you want to make some life changes and lose weight, then this program is for you! Thank you to Dr. Golikeri and her great staff!!” Mary Jo
