ACTUAL PATIENT TESTIMONIALS ON THE SUCCESS OF DR. CHRISTINE’S WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM:
I wish I would have know about this YEARS ago. I have never been able to lose weight so quickly, without being hungry. Dr. Christine has been so helpful in encouraging me through the entire process and I now know how to make healthy food choices to maintain or lose weight.
Presently, I have the quality problem of replacing my entire wardrobe, as I have gone from a size 14 to a size 10 in about two and a half months.
