Very sstisfied customer



February9, 2016

I had a very hard time getting off weight at 67 years. When I did my walking exercise, my weight did not come off as usual. So I heard about your hormones can sometimes prevent you from losing your weight. I saw uweightloss ad and checked them out. I DID FEEL PRESSURE but am so happy to have spent $553 to get my weight off !!!! They gave me a monthly payment plan and will never regret seeking help from uweightloss. High protein diet makes me feel very content and cuts out too much fat, sugar & salt. I stuck too my diet rules and lost my weight. WONDERFUL RESULTS. You have to stick to your diet to lose weight. The pills they gave me helped to quicken the weight loss.
Never regret going here. We need detox pills to help weight loss. It sure helped me. You have too spend some money to produce good results. Stick to your diet!!! it sure helps weight to come off faster.
Some do not want to follow the rules. It really helped to have professionals help you get my weight off. They also weigh you and measure you. Encouraged me to see weight come off. I am a happy customer. The pills helped to get weight off.

A very poorly run business in constant financial problems!!



September16, 2015

I am/was the landlord of the Edmonton location. This past weekend, U-Weightloss abandoned the premises- leaving most of their possessions, INCLUDING ALL THEIR CLIENT FILES. They have been in a difficult position financially for years and years- getting caught up on rent and then falling 3-4 months behind. They are currently 3 months behind. They have been closing locations across the country. After reading the online reviews and discovering all the comments about their high prices and their "scam" business model, I am not surprised. Apparently, U-Weightloss is only concerned about making money- not who they rip off (which includes clients and landlords alike). I would avoid this business at all cost and go elsewhere for help with losing weight!!

The staff may have taken some of their most recent files (hoping to make some more money at their St. Albert location) but years and years of files were simply left behind. There are boxes and file cabinets full of old client files. So much for confidentiality!!

SIGNING A CONTRACT WITH THE DEVIL - DON'T DO IT - RUN !!!



August25, 2015

Be VERY wary of this company. DO NOT...I repeat, DO NOT under any circumstances sign up for the financing through Health Smart !!! I started with U/W but all of the pill popping began to bother me and have found that this system is nothing more than basically popping pills and eating properly. And if you combine eating properly with exercise you'll be perfectly fine ON YOUR OWN and save yourself a HUGE, HUGE AMOUNT OF MONEY. This company is even MORE EXPENSIVE THAN DR. BERNSTEIN !

I made the GRAVE MISTAKE of signing on the dotted line with their financing company...to the tune of $6,000 + (paying $570 every month) to "try" to lose about 95 - 100 lbs. within a year. As stated earlier, the pill popping was bothering me and the eating schedule just didn't fit into my daily schedule or lifestyle at all. I am constantly in and out of the hospital and sick in bed for long periods of time...,which means I am not on the program during those times...so what's the point of all this if I am unable to make the program fit my life and circumstances??? So I inquired about cancelling the contract to stop the monthly payments to the financing company.....well, let's just say THAT IS WHERE THE NIGHTMARE REALLY BEGAN !!!

U/W keeps stating that there are NO REFUNDS...PERIOD!!! They tell you that we will try to talk to the "higher-ups" to see if that is possible...but THAT IS A LIE !!! They string you along saying that they are still checking in to this for you...all the while your reputation is going down the toilet VERY QUICKLY with the financing company because they are not receiving their monthly payment. ** My finances drastically changed where I was no longer able to make the monthly payments and then this situation ended up in a DOUBLE NIGHTMARE !!! Getting lied to by my U/W representative and then being RUTHLESSLY HOUNDED by the finance company for the late and missing payments. The woman (Mina Khan) at Health Smart is a PUSHY, IGNORANT, RELENTLESS AND RUTHLESS BITCH that is RUDE beyond RUDE and does NOTHING but talk her broken record "YOU MUST PAY - YOU SIGNED THE CONTRACT - OR THIS WILL GO TO COLLECTIONS AND YOU WILL RUIN YOUR CREDIT". She WILL NOT...I repeat WILL NOT LET YOU SPEAK. She is RUDE and TALKS OVER YOU CONSTANTLY that you cannot get a single word in.

I have been TRYING TO WORK WITH THEM to lower the payments so that I still can make payments and fulfill my contractual obligations...'BECAUSE I SIGNED A CONTRACT WITH THE DEVIL THAT CANNOT BE CANCELLED BY U/W !!! This Mina "lady" REFUSES TO WORK WITH ME ABOUT LOWERING THE PAYMENTS...PERIOD !!! So, because of my circumstances I am FORCED TO HUMBLE MYSELF TO A FAMILY MEMBER FOR A MONTHLY LOAN JUST SO I CAN CONTINUE TO MAKE MY PAYMENTS AND SAVE MY CREDIT AND PAY OUT THE REMAINDER OF THIS "CONTRACT WITH THE DEVIL". And then later on next year I will have to repay my relative for the loan.

This whole experience is nothing more than a TRUE NIGHTMARE FROM HELL!!! And the BEST ADVICE I can give anyone even considering this company is to RUN IN THE OTHER DIRECTION AS FAST AS YOU CAN !!! DO NOT....I repeat DO NOT SIGN ANYTHING - YOU ARE DEALING DIRECTLY WITH THE DEVIL HIMSELF !!!!! You DO NOT HAVE TO SPEND THIS RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF MONEY TO GET HEALTHY !!!

*** *** ***

If you are serious about making positive changes in your life to become a healthier weight...there is an ABUNDANCE OF FREE INFORMATION ON THE WEB (advice, direction, workout videos, recipes, support, etc., etc., etc.) THAT WILL HELP YOU TO SUCCEED WITHOUT GETTING INTO BED WITH THE DEVIL (aka - U/W and Health Smart). I truly wish I would have had more faith in myself earlier this year...so that I could have avoided all of this NIGHTMARE that I am dealing with now. I was just so depressed and down on myself and looking for an easier way to do this...but unfortunately the LESSON AND THE "LIGHTBULB MOMENT" CAME MUCH TOO LATE...and now I am financially devastated for the next 2 - 3 years to pay off Health Smart (getting those VULTURES off of my back) and then repaying my relative back.

AS GOD AS MY WITNESS...I WILL NEVER SIGN A CONTRACT OR SIGN UP WITH ANOTHER WEIGHT LOSS COMPANY AGAIN !!! THE COST (both financial and emotional) IS JUST TOO GREAT !!! I will TRUST IN MYSELF AND USE ALL THE FREE SUPPORT THAT IS OUT THERE FOR ME.

$1580. they got from me. Within a week of there "supplements" and crazy diet, my boss almost called an ambulance when I collapsed at work. I removed and went to the doctor and he said I was so malnourished and dehydrated. I went to the manager and she said you paid up front and there is no refund. I then went to my lawyer but there contract was so iron clad I couldn't do a thing. The location has been closed for a year, looks like everything in the building was left behind - These people are criminals. You want to lose weight, do what I did. cut the carbs, eat lots of veggies, meat, chicken and fish and exercise. These places are for people that are lazy and want a quick fix (me included). I've lost 47 lbs with little effort and will lose the other 45 lbs within the end of the year. These companies pray on people that are not informed on nutrition (again me included).

I have just started with the program and yes it is expensive, but I have been struggling for years with obesity, and all of the attempts that I have made to fix my weight on my own have been unsuccessful. I have decided to invest in my health because I have always had a bad image of my body, and I no longer want to feel that way. While I could choose to accept my current weight, I know that I will be happier once I reach a healthy weight. I did Herbal Magic in the past and made the mistake of not doing the maintenance. This time I am in it to be successful. I wish there was a service out there that was less expensive and as good but I can tell you with absolute certainty that there is not. I have asked friends to help me, I have tried the myfitnesspal app, I have tried a vegan diet and all of these have caused me to lower my metabolism and ultimately lose weight. A plan where I have to keep track of my foods and weigh in on a weekly basis, and then gradually incorporate exercise into the mix is exactly the program I need to be successful. As much as the cost sucks, it sure does keep me committed.

U weight loss is unprofessional and way over priced.



May20, 2014

This program costs substantially more then any others, but the vitamins can be purchased across the street at choices for much less, and what they call coaches are high turn over, minimum wage, uneducated sales employees. Its all about the sale. Not the client. Huge scam!!

Strange because I just went in there, and the lady I spoke with definitely knew her stuff. They are very much educated, shes been there 10 years so not a high turn-over rate. Might just be the one you went to. The program itself isnt that bad. You cant put a price on your health and for someone that is struggling I 100% going in and getting their opinion and seeing what they can do for you.

....4 years later



January6, 2014

I did this program 4 years ago and started out a size 16 and went down to a size 4 where I still am today.

I DID invest into my HEALTH and it was the BEST decision I ever made. It was not a cheap program but it was money well spent. I did understand what I was committing to.

I did follow the meal program and sometimes didn't but I was never scolded instead encouraged to get back on track. It is an easy program to do if you follow what your coaches tell you to. I sometimes take the maintenance vitamin (oops) but I always buy the protein powder even though I tried cheaper ones this one is the best all around for its contents and flavour.

I am NOT an employee nor a former employee and its despicable that these people continue to write nastily about the company that they initially choose to work for but found it wasn't a fit for them.
It is a great program ....give them a chance!!

sincerely,
Elizabeth

Very good



November28, 2013

The service is excellent Heather is amazing right from initial consultation she explained everything, and after few months I'm on track to get to my goal. I just read the review from another customer about her experience saying that she was taken and that she had talked to Heather and asked for her money back, funny I was in the clinic that day and she was yelling and screaming and sticking her finger in Heathers face it was a total disgrace this lady was totally out of control I know from my experience everything is and was explained and while the program is not cheap it's well worth every penny.

On Track and Staying there



November27, 2013

I have been on this program since April and have lost 40 lbs.

I feel great and people have noticed.. I love when someone says, you look great.

This is a commitment and not a scam.

I should have lost 50 by now but life does get in the way and I YoYo'ed for a few weeks here and there because I wanted my wine and beer in the summer. But am back on track

I love the people at U loss and am planning to lose another 20 before my winter holiday.
