Christy Snow - 30 year old female

Christine Snow, weight loss success story at Alison Wellness Clinic I came to the Alison Wellness Clinic because over the course of 7-8 years, I had gained over 50 pounds. I had tried every diet I could think of as well as went to the gym on a regular basis with no results. The diets would work for the first few weeks and then I would just start gaining the weight back again. I knew something would have to work eventually, so after hearing commercials for the Alison Wellness Clinic and looking into what they had to offer, I decided to give them a try. My experience with Alison Wellness Clinic was one of the best experiences I have ever had. On the day of my consultation, my coach Amy and I decided to go with the Ideal Protein program for my weight loss. I went in thinking it may have been my hormones that were affecting my weight gain, but my coach said that if it was, we would know after about a month on the program. I was very unsure of how it was all going to work and if I would even lose any weight. There was a lot of information to take in all at once and I knew I was really going to have to have a game plan in order to make this program work for me. I ended up making myself a recipe book so that dinners and lunches would be easier for me to plan out. On my first weekly weigh in, I had lost 5.7 lbs, and that was when I knew it was not the hormones and that this was the program for me! The staff was always encouraging no matter what step of the journey I was on. They know how to make you feel welcome when you come in and that you are important to them. I enjoyed every week that I went to weigh in and never missed a week as I was always excited to see what each week’s weigh in would be. I was on the program for 7 ½ months and lost a total of 60lbs and almost 53 lbs of that was fat! To say I feel better than what I did before I started the program is an understatement. I feel like a completely new person. I am excited to get up every morning and to get dressed. Before I started this journey, I would get up, put my stretchy pants on and a tank top. This is what I would wear just about every day. Blue jeans were no longer comfortable nor were anything that was remotely tight across my stomach. Now I look forward to putting on jeans and seeing what kind of outfits I can come up with. The other thing that I have noticed since this program is that when I do go hang out with friends, I am no longer the person who tries not to be noticed and will not participate in the conversation; I enjoy being part of the conversation and all around just getting out of the house. I have my confidence back and that is all thanks to the staff at Alison Wellness and my coach Amy for being my cheerleaders during my time at the clinic. I would and do recommend anyone to the Alison Wellness Clinic if they have struggled with their weight and nothing has ever worked. This weight loss program is the REAL deal, you just have to put your mind to it. If you follow it the way that it is taught then you will most definitely succeed!

Patient 1

So many people have asked how I lost weight and why I started at Alison Wellness Clinic. My response is simply “by process of elimination, it was the only diet fad and clinic that I haven’t tried.” In January, after breaking my all-time high weight (again), I decided that instead of buying bigger clothes (again) that all the clothes already in my closet were going to fit. Just walking in the door of the Alison Wellness Clinic, I realized this is going to be different from all my past diet clinics. The bright cheerful atmosphere was not the typical shameful and dreary diet clinic atmosphere. They even had cute jewelry, pajamas, lipstick, and nail polish for sale. Within 30 minutes of my initial consult, my emotions went from anxiety and fear of failing (again) to determination and confidence that I could do this. After just a few weeks, I was completely comfortable with my weekly check-ins. Each consultant offered her own unique and valuable perspective. They didn’t ask textbook questions and didn’t recite a training manual, so the weekly check-ins didn’t feel like an interrogation to determine if I strayed from the plan. On the not-so-good weeks, they knew if I needed a hug or if I deserved a kick in the pants. I was back on track before I even left the building. After 6 months, 65 pounds, and many inches, I had to buy new clothes. My fit-again pants, which were my original goal, are too big. Not only have I lost weight, my vitamins are back in sync, and my energy and mood are better than ever. Until starting the Alison program, I didn’t realize that the past 10 years of “gentle aging” had cumulated into several sources for weight gain. Once my regimen included correcting the sources of the fat, my lifestyle regained productivity and happiness. The weight loss not only became achievable, but exceeded my expectations. I do not have a picture of those pants that had gotten “a little snug”. Those pants are hiding in the back of a closet shelf, because my focus is my now jeans fitting. My biggest smile is from the picture that my toes photobombed. After 20 years of being a diet circuit pro, for the 1st time I finally completed a diet regimen. So many people have commented and asked how I lost the weight. Some, I only know in passing, like the lady from the school pick-up line and the guy in my work building. As more people noticed me, I realized that I had found a buried treasure, and the Alison Wellness Clinic was like the big black “X” on the map. People ask if I still go to Alison’s since I finished the diet. My response is simply “Of course, I love that place. I still weight-in, shop, pick-up vitamins, and visit.” Their motto is printed on their wall “What you eat in private, you wear in public” does not leave much too room for excuses. The knowledgeable staff with their bubbly personalities and their amazing products opens endless possibilities for awesome weight-loss and overall healthy improvements.

Claire Ragsdale

After quitting smoking a few years back, I gained the dreaded weight. I felt tired and sluggish all the time, but none of the doctors I saw could find any explanation for my symptoms. I tried every weight loss plan imaginable and just could not drop any weight. It was very frustrating for me. After seeing Dr. Alison, he discovered that my hormones were out of balance, and that I was also borderline diabetic. Going to see Dr. Alison was one of the best things I have ever done! Not only is everything back in balance, but with the weight I have lost, I have managed to reverse the borderline diabetic diagnosis. I feel better than I have in years!! I would recommend Dr. Alison and his wellness clinic to anyone!! The wellness director, Claire Neighbors Roby and the rest of the staff are equally as helpful as well. Not only does Claire help “coach” you to make the right food and other lifestyle choices that are beneficial to your weight loss goal, she helps you to be more aware of the benefits of an improved general wellness. Claire is your biggest “cheerleader” when you meet or exceed your goals and also a source of great encouragement for you to continue when may not have met your goals. Keep up the great work Dr. Alison and everyone at Alison Wellness Clinic!!! Claire Ragsdale Harvest, AL

Diane Emanuel

After struggling with my weight for more than thirty years, Alison Wellness Clinic provided me with the information, guidance, and encouragement to lose 80 pounds. Throughout the weight loss program , my energy and confidence steadily increased. I am currently training to run a 5K race and am trying a variety of new sports. I feel so empowered. I can’t thank Dr. Alison and his wonderful staff enough for transforming me from a weight loss zero to being my own health hero.

Jennifer Eichhorn, weight loss success story at Alison Wellness Clinic Going to Alison Wellness Clinic was one of the best things I have done for myself. The staff was very helpful in guiding me to make the right good choices and lifestyle changes. I can honestly say this is the easiest diet I’ve ever done. I feel better than I ever have! I actually like being in front of the camera now instead of behind it. This summer will be the first time in over 10 years that I will be able to wear a bikini! Thanks to Dr. Alison and his wellness staff I have lost 6 sizes & 63 lbs since April 2013.

Female 50 years old

I went to Alison Wellness Clinic because of a friend that had lost weight there. I had watched her remarkable weight loss and I had hoped they could help me too. I had tried several programs in the past but the difference at Alison Wellness Clinic is that they really taught me a lot about food choices and the effects they can have on your body. The program was very effective for me. To date, I have lost a total of 63 pounds! My friends and family are constantly noticing my progress. It has really changed both my physical and emotional well-being. I feel better than I have felt in 20 years. The program was not as difficult as I thought it would be. It has really been a fun journey. If you are wanting to lose weight and gain better health, I would highly recommend Alison Wellness Clinic. Don’t wait…Start today! The program WORKS!

Male 44 years old

I’ve been with Alison Wellness Clinic for 12 weeks and I’ve lost 73 pounds. All you have to do is eat the foods they tell you. Believe it or not, I don’t go around hungry. The food is great! The staff is excellent and real supportive. They’ve been in my shoes, and that kind of support makes you want to fight on. I’ve fought my weight most all my life. I’ve tried other weight loss plans. None of the other diets really teach you how to eat right. Get to Alison Wellness Clinic. It works!

Female 43 years old

I had been having a hard time losing weight on my own, and heard about Alison Wellness Clinic and decided to give it a try. This Program has been great! The best part to me are the Health Coaches. They are very supportive and are great cheerleaders. All those great girls are always in your corner cheering you on. They all seem to understand what I’m going through and have taught me that this is a lifestyle change. I would definitely recommend this clinic. I feel great and the weight loss has really helped me feel more confident.

Female 48 years old

About the time I realized I weighed as much as I did when I was pregnant, I ran into a friend who told me about the Ideal Protein program at Alison Wellness Clinic. I had been trying to lose weight on my own but wasn’t having much success and was really lost on what direction to go. I started the program a couple months ago and I am down 25 pounds which was my goal. I have a small frame and the extra weight was really slowing me down. I feel so much better now than when I started. It was only 3 days into the program when I slept thru the night. It had been years, probably a decade since I had slept well. I was taking anti-inflammatories several times a day and now don’t need to take any. Migraines are gone too which I had several times a month. I would absolutely recommend this clinic. The staff is extremely supportive, encouraging and empowering.

Female 55 years old

I was the heaviest I have ever been in my life. My self-confidence was gone. My clothes didn’t fit right, and I didn’t like what I was looking at in the mirror. What brought me to Alison Wellness Clinic is I saw an acquaintance transform on Facebook. The last time I saw her, she was chubby. She kept posting pictures of herself and she looked fabulous! I wanted to know what she was doing. She finally revealed her secret and I made an appointment that same day. My experience at Alison Wellness Clinic has been awesome. The coaches are always supportive and uplifting. I am still on my weight loss journey but I feel so much better than I did before I started the program. I can see and feel the progress I’m making. I’m loving me again! I would absolutely recommend Alison Wellness Clinic to my friends and family. Very soon, after I lose a few more pounds, I’m going to reveal my secret to them and I know they will be making an appointment.

Female 37 years old

I have struggled with my weight the past several years. I had heard success stories from Alison Wellness Clinic on the radio and hoped they could help me. I have been going there for 2 ½ months now and have lost 25 pounds! I feel so much better! I am able to fit in clothes that have sat in my closet for years. I actually bought a bikini and plan to wear it this season…first time in 10 years! I would most definitely recommend Alison Wellness Clinic. The staff is amazing and is always supportive.

Female 57 years old

I heard Dee Dee on the 99.1 morning show talk about her success with this program. I have been a yo-yo dieter most of my adult life without much success. I had gotten to the point that I hated shopping for clothes. I only bought things that covered me up and I was SICK of shopping in the Plus sizes. I always felt self-conscious, especially with my closet friends. I never wanted to shop for clothes with them because I was the “fat” one and I was embarrassed for them to know what size I was. I have been on the Ideal Protein program. The staff has been wonderful and very supportive throughout this experience. I started the program sometime in May and have lost 65 pounds over the past 9 months. I have gone from a 2X in tops and 16-18 pants, to a size medium/large tops and a size 4-6 pants! I have never had so much fun shopping for a new wardrobe! I am continuing to monitor my weight daily to maintain my weight. I feel like a new person! Because of my weight loss, I have more energy and I feel better about my appearance, which makes me have more confidence in myself.

Female 45 years old

I have tried many different weight loss programs, and a few were very successful….at least in losing the weight, but they all failed miserably in teaching me how to maintain the new weight. So, I would inevitable return to bad habits, like emotional eating or justifying “it won’t hurt to eat this one bowl of ice cream or bag of popcorn because I worked out today.” It soon spiraled into a problem when I began eating those things every day, whether I went to the gym or not; not to mention that the habit I had created from eating those foods daily caused my body to crave them even more. I chose the Ideal Protein (IP) program because it seemed to be a common-sense approach to weight loss. Initially, I was skeptical about the IP foods, but as it turns out, they were delicious, satisfying, and the variety is overwhelming. The other element of IP that I enjoyed is the structure of the 4 phases; it truly is a proven method that easily moves you through the entire program. I feel so much better now. It has been more than a physical change for me. It has been an emotional transformation because I feel better about myself and that has had a significant impact on my relationships with those around me. I also got my labs drawn because I had not had a complete lab panel done in more than 10 years, so I was curious about my levels. I quickly learned that the labs drawn at Alison Wellness Clinic reported much more than the typical cholesterol, glucose, HDL/LDL, and blood count levels; they identified hormone and vitamin deficiencies as well. Dr. Alison took the time to explain the results, where I should be in the recommended ranges, and which deficiencies I should address immediately versus those that weren’t as important for immediate action. The staff at Alison Wellness Clinic are fantastic! I had the pleasure of interacting with every staff member and I couldn’t ask for a better team during my weight loss journey. In the 7 months that it took to go through the program I lost a total of 45 pounds. Their support and encouragement went above and beyond the experiences I have had at other weight loss clinics. Hands down, they are the best support team around.
