Tri-County Weight Loss & Nutrition Center


"For years I have had trouble controlling my weight. I work in the financial industry, deal with high levels of stress on a daily basis and travel constantly. This past year my father had a heart attack and forced me to take a look at my own health picture. I met with Dr. Thakkar at my regular physical and she put me on a weight program. I have now been on the program for 3 months and I've lost 25 lbs! I feel better than ever and for the first time I've been able to lose weight without having a crutch - historically this has been smoking cigarettes. I've managed to quit smoking now for over 6 months. What makes my weight loss even more amazing is that I travel constantly for a living - which involves multiple opportunities to eat foods rich in fat and often late at night. Working with Tri-County Weight Loss & Nutrition Center has helped me deal with being on the road and still eating healthy in addition to using 'out of the box' thinking to achieve exercise goals. I must also give an endorsement of Tri-County Weight Loss & Nutrition Center. This is a no nonsense type of program that gives you the straight facts without sugar coating anything. Their directness and passion for their business of providing health care is exemplary!"
