What is it?
Dr. Bernstein is a medical doctor who has created a new diet which claims to revolutionize dieting. The premise of the diet is that you will lose 16 to 20 pounds per month following the program correctly. Everyone that signs up for the program will be placed an a calorie reduced diet and be supplemented with injected and oral vitamins and minerals (B6 and B12 Shots). Your progress will be monitored by registered nurses and see a doctor frequently who will monitor your progress. If the participant has any other medical conditions they will be discussed beforehand and monitored throughout the diet.
To begin the Dr. Bernstein Diet you need to complete an initial consultation which will take 1-2 hours to review medical history and complete a health assessment. Then you will complete a program orientation, medical assessment and discuss the diet manual and recipe book. Note: The initial consultation fee is non-refundable.
Maintenance Program of the Dr. Bernstein Diet
After the weight loss goal has been reached you will reach a maintenance program which will slowly re-introduce most foods back into the diet.

Concerns of the Diet
Myfit promotes exercise AND DIET while many diets focus on eating certain types of food to promote weight loss. The Dr. Bernstein diet secret is the B6 and B12 shots. These shots help your body go into a state where you burn fat as fuel. This is great but the concerns lie in two things. There is a problem with a long duration ketone state which can actually start other problems. The Dr. Bernstein doctors will monitor your ketone levels for this but we don’t know the long-term problems with being in this state for long periods of time. The other concern we have is your metabolism levels. Metabolism is the body’s caloric expenditure rate which is effected by a lack of nutrition, exercise level, genetics and many other factors. The diet doesn’t focus on exercise which is a huge mistake to keep the weight off. Muscle mass is extremely important for the maintenance phase and afterwards. If you are considering this diet please bring up the exercise point and ask if there is a personal trainer to see that they recommended.
The Dr. Bernstein diet no doubt works to lose the weight they say. I’ve met lots of people who have lost the weight on that program but I was concerned with their metabolism and activity level after the program ended. If you have the finances to pay for this diet it may be an effective way to lose weight. If you have tried this diet in the past write us with your story, we will post it here. Please tell us your concerns, weight loss details and overall costs.

All my liver function blood tests were extremely elevated. I feared the worst and thought I had liver cancer, but the news is good… Read more
