U Weight Loss Clinics Reviews
32 ‘U Weight Loss Clinics’ Reviews
All I have to say some staff are nice and some are there only for the money. I personally dreaded going in there when certain staff member worked there. She worked at the Grant location in Winnipeg and would make me feel horrible for not buying product and not losing fast enough. Truthfully it is a large waste of money. A person can do this without their help. They are only there to sell you a bunch of pills. If you are looking at weight loss plans this one is expensive and if you have this kind of money (we are talking about a few $1000) and need support to lose weight I say you are honestly better off working with a dietitian or personal trainer to teach you how to lose weight you will actually probably pay the same that help, as you for this program and actually get knowledge from a trained professional then a few girls u weigh loss hired who don't have any formal training in weight loss. ( The only formal training the staff have is a few day course offered by the company.) I honestly feel horrible for falling for this program and truthfully regret it. I lost more weight off it then on it.
Consultants should remain more professional and stick to the weight loss talk. Chatting about her personal love life and where she partys on weekends is an odd and needy way of building raport. "Flirting" with these low self esteem males to increase sales is slimy.
I joined the U Weight in Surrey, the owner, Jamie Swan, being a business belonging to the same group as my husband.
Everything was going well and I lost 40 lbs during the weight loss phase. The cost was high @$3,200 but I justified it because it is a “lifestyle change” and my whole family was happy with the meal plans.
Unfortunately, when I hit the maintenance phase, I was told I had to pay another $1,200 for supplements. WHAT??? I thought the cost of everything was taken care of and itemized when I joined and got financing (including the supplements). I reviewed all my paperwork, including the break down sheet with her handwritten notes, and I couldn’t find a thing about having to purchase more supplements that are NECESSARY to complete the program. If you do not take the U-Loss and the maintenance supplements, they have the right to kick you out of the program. WHAT????
I spoke to a lawyer who told me that from the paperwork I gave her, that, yes, it appeared I had financed the entire program. She wrote a letter to Ms. Swan asking them to provide me with the supplements at no extra cost to me. It has been approximately 3 weeks since then and I have not heard from Ms. Swan. Guess it’s court time. The thing I find funny, though, is that the supplements probably don’t cost much to the franchisees since this is probably their main source of profit. It would/will cost Ms. Swan or U-Weight a lot less to just give me the supplements than for them to defend a court action (and bad publicity) which I have already been told by a lawyer is 100% in my favour.
While looking for a solution to my wieght problems, I visited the U weightloss centre in our town. what a way to spend hard earned money. I feel sorry for people who need expensive support to lose wieght effectively. It dow not have to cost a fortune, actually, it could be done for free.
I joined the program and I have lost 6.5 pounds and 8.5 inches in 8 days!!! That was the first weeks (detox week) you're not supposed to have red meat, alcohol, caffeine, salt or sugar I cheated a couple of times as it was Easter weekends and I still had amazing results. I feel more energized than ever and the best part is that you do not have to starve yourself. They really teach you how to put together healthy meals. They are not like some other programs that tell you not to eat any carrots or banana because of the sugar you can eat all fruits and vegetables in moderate amounts. They also encourage exercise and set you up with a program you can do from home. Bottomline I highly recommend this program. I only need to lose about 20 pounds and I feel this is a great jump start to a healthy lifestyle.
Same as reviews above, all they are doing is taking advantage of people I'm so mad it's hard to write a review without swearing.
I went to U weight loss because I had about 20 pounds to lose. They tried to talk me into paying $3000 to be on this program for a year. I told them I wanted to only try for a month. I have always eaten well and exercised but I thought that having a set meal plan would help me lose weight. I followed the plan they gave me and actually ended up gaining weight. It was ridiculous. They also want you to come in every other day, so they only give you 2 or 3 days worth of meal plans. I have a full time office job and take accounting classes at night. I could have made time to come in once a week, but certainly not 3-4 times a week. When I did make an appointment to go in for a quick consultation that I was told would take 10-15 minutes I was usually there for at least an hour. This plan was time consuming, a waste of money, and I hated every minute on it. This is the worst use of money ever!! After I decided to quit going to this U Weight loss centre I increased the amount of time I exercised each day and followed a meal plan I found on the internet and I am seeing way better results and I'm able to keep way more of my money.
I met with two consultants at U Weight Loss, and although everyone is very nice and welcoming, when it comes down to answering your questions straight forward - specifically regarding money, my answers were not met and I went into the program without properly knowing how much money I would have to end up paying.
The program is based on how much weight you need to lose, but it also requires you to sign up with a credit plan - which no one full out told me or explained to me. They never told me the consequences of cancelling either. You also have to make sure to not only pay to pay their expensive monthly fees for "coaching" and their stomach turning vitamins, but any extras they may convince you into buying - oh and don't forget the extra food you need to add to your grocery list. And it's not easy on the pocket. At the end of the day, when you try and leave the program, they charge you expensive prices, as if it's a punishment.
I'm now stuck with monthly charges because they convinced me into a program that they never full explained to me in the first place.
