About my services…
I have been “overweight prone” my entire life. By June, 2003, I had ballooned to 204 lbs. and I was concerned about my prospects for a long and comfortable life. I was attracted to an advertisement in the San Francisco Chronicle for Dr. Melina Jampolis. I had never tried a nutritionist before and called for a free consultation. Upon arriving for my appointment, my fears of a “quick fix” were put to rest as Dr. Jampolis detailed her plan.
Although it was tough in the beginning, I stuck to the plan and
followed Dr. Jampolis’ suggestions to the letter. She adjusted the program constantly to maximize my results. The weight began to disappear. It is now the end of November, 2003…five months after the program began. I have lost 34 lbs. and my waist is 6 inches smaller. I can see and feel muscles I haven’t acknowledged in years. The program is now a complete part of who I am and how I live my life. The only “downside” is that I have to spend a bunch of money on an entirely new wardrobe. Tough duty! I could not have achieved such success without Dr. Jampolis. My future is definitely one of continued health, strength, consistency, and happiness.

You name a diet, and I guarantee you, I’ve been on it – a good one here or there, the bad ones, and the wacky ones. I’d been successful in losing weigh on just about every diet, but usually because the diets were crash types and very unhealthy – I was losing good muscle mass instead of excess body fat. I always gained back the weight I’d lost and then some.
I enjoy the food on the program, I feel satisfied and do not have a desire to unhealthy high calorie food, junk food, or sweets. Dr. Jampolis is very
encouraging and challenging at the same time, and she helps to keep me on track with all of her suggestions and with the good food supplements and vitamins that she offers. I’ve lost well over 30 lbs. and plan to continue to lose another 7 to 10% of body fat and about another 16 to 20 lbs.

Dr. Jampolis – I feel that you have provided me with healthy choices (I love the Trader Joe’s shopping list). I have gained in my understanding of nutrition and how to fuel my body to feel good throughout the day. While I have intellectually always understood the value of exercise and strength training, I have finally been able to incorporate exercise in my daily routine. Now I actually findmyself missing exercise when I don’t do it – a goal I never thought I would achieve! My weight loss has been a very positive experience. I look forward to continuing to work with you to achieve my weight maintenance goals.

About my book…
I just finished your book. I am truly inspired to continue with my weight
loss. I am a member of Weight Watchers. It has been over a year and I have lost 56 lbs. Frankly, I have purchased quite a few “diet books” I would read a few chapters and put it down. Yours, I read cover to cover! I took notes and photo copied pages to carry with me. Thank you. What I liked was that you gave practical information of getting back on track when one “falls off the wagon”. I am a very busy person working upwards of 12-16 hours a day.The information is specific, realistic and easily applied. Wish me well. I have a blue print that I can honestly follow to lose the next 50 lbs. JL
Your new book “spoke to me”. I will be carrying it around, rereading it
every chance I get in order to really understand your concepts of losing
weight. You brought your thoughts together in the book excellently.
I know people will succeed to lose weight and become healthier if they
follow your lead. JC from Orlando, Florida
Dr Melina – Thank you for your book. It provided me with the information
I have been wanting forever! I wanted a diet for a lifetime. Nobody seemed
to lead me in that direction. I wanted something to base a family plan on
and I feel that you covered that in your book, plus the reasons why. AVD
I am thankful for your book – my head is swimming with all the diets I’ve
been on these past 2 years. I appreciated the common sense approach you’ve
presented. Once again, thanks for your commitment to helping people.
