First, Testimonials: 

Pam’s Story
At 5’2″ and 215 pounds, 38 year-old Pam looked — and felt — terrible. Forget about exercising.  She barely had enough energy to get off the couch!

Then one day, she spotted a weight-loss clinic: Beyond Care. In what turned out to be an incredible stroke of luck, it was
run by Dr. Reza Yavari, a renowned weight-loss expert and author of It Must Be My Metabolism.

After completing the program Pam has lost 48 pounds and 11 inches off her waist and kept it off. She  feels healthier and stronger every day.

I prevented diabetes and got my life back …

“This program was more than just improving my appearance and losing weight — my future health was at stake. What motivated me was the knowledge that I was in control of my health and the decisions affecting it. I lost 30 pounds in six months.” (Janet)

I raised my burn rate and kept weight off …

“I dieted and exercised constantly but nothing worked. With this program, I was able to fine-tune my diet and exercise program to a point that finally worked for me. The Beyond Care staff has been tremendous.” (Ana)

I lost fat and no longer need blood pressure medication …

“I tried dieting and always gained the weight back. Now I am losing seven pounds a month and the weight is staying off. The staff has made the difference — they have been fantastic. I came off my blood pressure medication because it is now in a normal range. I feel so much better!” (Joe L.)

I reversed my diabetes! …

“The word ‘diet’ has been eliminated from my vocabulary. I had type 2 diabetes and took higher doses and different types of medications with marginal success. Here I’ve lost 60 pounds in six months and am now free of all diabetes medications.”  (Joe M.)
