Metabolic Research Center Reviews
I love this program and this center! I have been on probably every diet out there, but this is NOT a diet. It's a healthy way of eating. Yes, I won't deny that the first few weeks are the hardest, but if you 'eat what you read and only what you read' the pounds come off! I followed the food sheet, took my medication, (mostly vitamins) and drank my protein drinks. Where else can you get chocolate pudding every night if you choose! This program WORKS and the help and encouragement I receive from Monica is worth its weight in gold! I go twice a week to weigh in and almost without fail I have lost weight. Don't get me wrong, you will have plateaus but they have 'tricks' to get you through those. I am down over 66 pounds, from a size 20/22 to a size 10, and will be transitioning to maintenance in a couple of weeks. I am so happy with my loss and my new body and now proud to be seen with my husband. Another bonus is going shopping! How many of us have full wardrobes in smaller sizes, I did. So if you are ready, and you need to be ready, to lose the weight and put the work in, (this is not a magic bullet you need to work at it and be committed), give the Ladies at Metabolic Melbourne a call and go in for a consultation. You will probably see me there too. Thank you, thank you to Monica and Masy for all the help and encouragement!
MRC is helping me succeed for the first time in a long time. The staff is amazing! I actually enjoy fantastic information and advice after believing I have heard and tried it all... Thank you guys!
If I could give more stars, I would. MRC is the best in the weight-loss business. The staff is the friendliest, yet most professional group of people you will ever encounter. Don't try to cheat because they'll call you out on it. Yet, they will give you some positive alternatives to keep you in the game. Worth every penny.
I have had such a hard time losing weight until I walked in this door! I've made a friend or two and I'm down almost 20lbs! I'm back to my pre-pregnancy weight and I'm loving the foods I can eat! This place is amazing, flexible, and professional!

Look, if you need to lose weight but aren't sure how to do it, give them a call. Between Thanksgiving and the second week of December, I've lost over 20 lbs.! If I can do it, you can too!
I started at MRC of Melbourne in March 2021 with Coach Monica. I have lost 34 pounds and I feel great. MRC offers a range of options for weight loss. And while there are supplements and injections, I opted for a program that is diet based, using a simple meal plan, along with protein drinks and soups. I make an effort to walk every day and I have hip issues. I am 61 and of course, post menopause which makes it difficult for some women to lose weight. I struggled during COVID (sitting all day working from home). I saw a post on Facebook where a friend had lost her first 10 pounds at MRC and I inquired about the program. I am well on my way to an even healthier life for me, my family and grandkids. My Coaches, Denise and Monica, are very friendly and supportive. They are good listeners and know their business. I found my first visit to be no pressure and selected the program most suited to me and my health. I feel WONDERFUL. Something to think about - A year from now you may regret what you didn't start today! Go for it!
I am a new patron of Metabolic Research. I would like to say that after taking the vitamins and minerals for the first week I am free from previous pain! I could not believe the pain disappeared! I’m so excited to see my additional benefits will be! Thank you!
The consultants are so kind and knowledgeable. They make weighing in fun! The best thing is that they have helpful hints for every problem you may be having. It’s a pleasure to visit this center.
My husband and I started this program a while ago. We both were taking lots of medication and our health numbers were high (A1C, cholesterol, etc). At our last physical, both of us had excellent numbers!
Tried several diets (medical, WW, keto) before that were hard to maintain but MRC is by far the easiest to follow. The menus are easy to make, taste great and the dining out guide makes it a breeze to still have a night out. The benefits my wife and I have gained are priceless, two months into the program I had my yearly physical and my Doc was amazed at all my numbers and best of all I am no longer considered pre-diabetic! Tonya and Deb at MRC are really awesome, very supportive, and have great advice. They making staying on target really simple and even if you slip, getting back on track is a breeze. If you want to lose weight, feel great and have more energy this is the perfect diet. I’ve lost over 25 pounds and plan on losing more!
When I started at MRC I was angry at myself, again for the weight gain, or should I say no weight loss. I was not an easy person to counsel, and had so many self-doubts and fears. Although it has taken longer to achieve my goals, due to my own faults, they were always encouraged me, supported, and went beyond what I needed. Im so close to a few big goals and once again find myself Self sabotaging and they have the patience structure and knowledge to lead me down the right path. Thank you isn't enough.
I started just under a month ago and have lost 10lbs to the cheers, the high fives, and the bell ringing (Darla!). The Ladies here are so supportive and truly, are like sisters. Such encouragement and smiles all the time. Program is easy, there is variety and I'm not hungry or thinking about food all the time. Welcome to Gail who I spoke with today for the first time! She is fitting right in to the crazy fun supportive ladies. Thank YOU so much and am looking forward to my next milestone.
I’m about three weeks in and so my weight loss numbers aren’t significant yet- however, because of my age and difficulty losing weight (and symptoms), I opted to have the hormone test done from the beginning. As expected, my hormones were out of balance. I started the progesterone cream and I can’t say enough positive things about it. On the third day my irritability and anxiety left, I started sleeping through the night, and my hair and skin have improved. I feel happy again. For the first time in years the scale is going down and I feel positive that my journey with MRC will be a successful one.
Tamara & all of the team at MRC are PHENOMENAL! I had tried nearly everything to lose weight (it was always a struggle). I finally decided to give them a shot, my only regret....not walking thru that door 3 years sooner! Positive feedback, encouraging words, and seemingly always available to help! Don’t go it alone....asking for help is not a sign of weakness, it’s acknowledging that together anything is possible! I always leave with a smile even if the scale didn’t drop! Food is my friend, but not my therapy anymore! Just make the call and start living your best life...TODAY!
Tried everything under the sun to lose weight. FINALLY, a program the works! Everyone is so positive, helpful and the program is so easy. I was scared I was not going to be able to follow it or I'd be hungry, but so not the case.
The staff here are so friendly, supportive, and helpful! I've lost 13 pounds in just a few short weeks, and I have not been hungry or felt deprived! I am so grateful I found the Metabolic Research Center to help me lose the weight I needed to be healthy!
If you are one that needs accountability, Metabolic will definitely help keep you on track. The scheduled weigh-ins and food tracking have kept me on track for the last 4.5 months and I have lost 44.5 pounds to date. The specialists are always pushing and encouraging you to be your best self and celebrate all the little victories along the way. This is my second time with the program and I returned because I knew it was something I would keep with and get myself back on track after falling off the wagon after a Cat 5 hurricane and a pandemic. I’m thankful for their encouragement and push to make the best choices.
Vanessa is my coach, but other coaches, staff are empowering, encouraging, and inspiring! I came in after trying so many weight loss programs. Staff is so encouraging, empowering. Products are healthy and fulfilling and the menus are great that are flexible. I would recommend this to everybody. And I have! They celebrate small and large victories to empower and encourage. Awesome program and awesome people. They give you the tools for life-changing eating habits. I LOVE Colorado Springs Metabolic Research Center Team!! Thanks for walking with me on my journey!
This program has best the best lifestyle change. It is giving me my life back with very little to no joint pain due to being massively overweight. The products taste great! Learning a new way of eating has been so easy. I will also say I couldn't have done it all by myself. I give total Thanks to the best coaches this program has to offer. Thank you Lynn and Rich! You're the best!
This place is amazing, to say the least. The front desk staff is always happy and ready to help and the coaches are amazing. I have had weight issues off and on all my life and was about to give up but they have helped me stay positive and motivated and reach my goals. They have so many menu options you never feel restricted or hungry. No gimmicks or fad diets just real-life skills to get you where you want to be.

Metabolic Research Center helped me to lose the weight associated with menopause and recommended the right supplements to combat the irritability, fatigue, and belly bloat I was experiencing. Donna is amazing and truly cares about helping people achieve their weight loss goals and feel their best! With her guidance and support, I achieved my goal weight and have maintained it for 3 years! Thank you to the staff at MRC, for helping me and others positively impact their health and well being!
I’ve struggled with being overweight since I was a child. I have been to several weight loss clinics throughout my life, and can lose the weight- but as soon as I stop going, within a year, I’ll have gained it back and more. I chose MRC on the recommendation of my heart doctor. I listened, joined MRC and lost 42lbs in 2018. Since that time I’ve stayed involved in the maintenance program and have successfully been able to keep it off. Sandy looks deeper than what’s going on in the outside, she helps you internalize what is going on as personal triggers, and gives you options to overcome a lifetime of bad habits. I can’t imagine myself being anywhere else. They are wonderful.
I would HIGHLY recommend MRC. I could never stick to a new lifestyle for more than 3 weeks. I am well past that and have lost so much weight. I can eat regular food, instead of pre-packaged meals. The cost is very reasonable that you don't want to pass it up. You will have the best one on one experience with the best consultants around. I love MRC and will be a lifer.
I just completed my 1st wk down 2.5lbs! Christine and Diane are absolutely amazing. I feel comfortable and supported. I am looking forward to working with these women who really want to help me be successful in my journey!
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! Awesome staff and support! I literally have lost 24 inches in two months and I never ever ever could’ve done it without them! Worth every single penny that I have paid to be here. And trust and believe I don’t have a lot of money, LOL. Totally totally totally worth it. They are the real deal. And I’m really not hungry; when I do get hungry and I tell them they always find me a healthy option that continues my weight loss. I’ve been far from perfect and they’ve also supported me emotionally and helped me with the ability to cheat. And it’s not even cheating because I’m still behaving! Go there. You would be a fool if you didn’t.
I have been blessed to find this wonderful place . My life has been enriched by finding not only a program that is working but a fantastic group of women who have made me feel like family. Thank You MRC LOVE Teri
I am so happy with my results. I joined in January and am so close to hitting my goal weight! I feel so much better and can’t believe the changes in myself. Everyone had been so helpful and supportive!
Ever thought: “I wish I could lose weight, but I don’t have enough time to exercise?” Weight loss is at least 80% diet, but mine is 100% diet. I work long hours and don’t have time for work outs. I knew I needed to lose weight. I knew how to lose weight. However I never had the motivation. MRC is a team of wonderful people keeping you positive about your weight loss journey. You get ribbon lengths for inches lost and pretty painted rocks for each 10# lost as souvenirs on your journey. Weight loss is hard. Doing it with a team is much easier.
Marsha at MRC in castle rock is AMAZING! So encouraging and positive. I love visiting this center!
I have had the best experience at MRC. Everyone is so supportive. I wouldn’t be where I am today without their encouragement and counseling.

I love this place! Especially the people they're so nice and they actually try to make it the best experience every time.

Making the decision to start my weight loss journey with Metabolic has been one of the best decisions I have ever made concerning my health! The staff is nothing short of amazing; from the minute you walk in the door to when you leave, it is nothing but a positive experience. They are always filled with words of encouragement, and go above and beyond to help you stay positive, even when you fall short of a personal goal you set for yourself. I could not be happier with the decision I made. I am a little over halfway to my personal goal, and I know with their help and encouragement, I will succeed! Thank you Metabolic!!
Since last year I have tried many things on my own to lose weight and finally decided I needed a program that was right for me. After 8 weeks I’ve lost 20 lbs and I’m doing it the healthy right way! It feels so good. I’m half way to my goal. The coaches are very supportive, encouraging and great on educating me on healthy habits. I’m also confident that once I lose the weight this program will help me maintain the weight loss and have life long healthy habits. Definitely recommend and worth the investment on my body. Thank you Ann and your amazing team!!
Respectful, wonderful, knowledgeable folks who go the extra mile to help you obtain your goals. If you are looking to make healthy lifestyle changes I highly recommend you check out MRC. They will treat you right. I have lost 40lbs of fat and gained 6 lbs of muscle. I am not finished but, these wonderful folks have done so much to help me regain my confidence.
I feel great, joined a month ago and I am already down 21.5 pounds. I am so proud of myself. If you want to lose some serious weight Metabolic Research Center is the place to go. IT REALLY WORKS!
From the moment I inquired via Facebook to over 2 months ago I have been nothing but pleased with the support and encouragement of the staff! I love the encouraging text messages that randomly pop up on my phone as well! I have been on many weight loss plans and I can honestly say that although this is not the least expensive program it is the healthiest and more 'REAL LIFE' plan that sets you up for success. I love the bars and the tomato soup most of all! If you are on the fence I encourage you to take a leap of faith and do this for yourself!! We most times put ourselves last and in all reality if we are healthy and feel good emotionally and physically we are a better person for those around us.
Everyone at Metabolic Research Center makes you feel like you can do anything!!!! Thank you for all of your support.
What a great place! With the help of my coach and the program and products they offer, I have finally found a way to be successful! Today I reached another milestone -70 pounds! I am closer to my goal than I ever thought I would be. If you are looking for a way to lose weight and learn how to keep it off Metabolic Research Center is the place for you!
I was looking for help for 2 years and my girlfriend suggest this place. I love it, my health is good now, the staff is amazing I love everything about this place. So worth it ??

This has been one of the most positive experiences of my life! I've tried every fad diet that has come and gone over the years and ended up gaining all of the weight I lost...plus some more! I had heard about MRC through a friend that had lost 20 pounds in about 2 weeks! I knew I had to check it out! I started in May 2016 and here it is October 2016 and I've lost a total of 73.5 pounds...So far!!! I praise MRC for the hard work and determination that they provide. If you are feeling hopeless go to MRC they are here to help and cheer you along the way!

I am so impressed with MRC and the staff here in Eugene. I gave tried, unsuccessfully, to lose weight for the last two years on another well known program with no success...lose two, gain one and on and on. Finally, this program, the medical tests and personalized attention gave got me moving forward and losing weight. I am so grateful my husband saw the advertisement and encouraged me to make an appointment!
Amanda T -
The staff is very supportive and really cares about you and your goals. I love the fact that I can go in everyday if I need to and have a one on one discussion about my goals, struggles and successes. They are very good at encouraging and inspiring you. Thank you Metabolic Research Center of Eugene for helping me achieve a healthy lifestyle!!!
Cindy W -
I have tried another program in the past however I really enjoyed the science of eating healthy foods and fruits in combination with your carbs and protein to obtain a healthy weight loss. They are concerned about your whole body wellness! I met my goal of losing 34 pounds and have enjoyed the whole experience! Now I know how to eat healthy! They provide a year of maintenance after the weight loss too! Try it and lose your extra weight!
Misty V -
MRC has changed everything I thought I knew about myself, and my nutrition! They give you everything you need to succeed on your weight-loss journey! The tools are available, and so are the greatest coaches! TY MRC!
Catherine B -
One of the best programs available. The diet itself is more like training yourself to eat well to be healthy. It offers great variety of good nutritious foods in appropriate quantities to lose weight steadily. The supplements improve metabolism and curb cravings. But the real powerhouse of this program are the ladies offering their support and encouragement. Simply the best.
Geraldine T -
Metabolic is a great place to go for results, staff is awesome , I highly recommend this place
Pam G -
So much support and excellent advise helped me to stick to the daily regime. I have tried so many times before....I no longer need my diabetic medicine, I have been taken off three of the four high blood pressure meds. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Very supportive staff, realistic goals, real food. Not a diet but a new way of living!
Gretchen S -
44 lbs and 80 inches!!!!! I NEVER could have done this without you ladies. They taught me how to eat. They are encouraging and motivational. Even when I wanted to give up they helped me over come my discouragement of the plateau I hit. 2 thumbs up for the ladies here and the MRC program!!!! I have tried numerous other plans from workouts to diets and mixing the 2. Nothing worked before I started at MRC.

MRC of Vancouver started me going in my attempt to loose 30 years of weight gain!! I have been using their program for about 18 months and have actually lost 30 pounds. I have changed the way I eat. I've learned what foods are best for ME. By analyzing my DNA and hormones, they helped me learn to eat what was right for me. I have "tweeked" my purchases and preparation of food to make eating healthy and still fun for me. I eat lots of veggies and salads and include a healthy diet of protein. These are very satisfying. Do I "cheat" now and then? Yes, but I don't like how I feel after eating sugar and lots of carbs so I return to my good foods quickly and continue to see my weight drop. I walk my little dog four times a day and have a part-time job that allows me a lot of movement. I feel so healthy and wonderful. It's easy to continue to eat and live a more healthy lifestyle! When I confessed about eating the wrong "foods", the gals simply encouraged me and gave me fresh ideas to satisfy my taste buds. I always felt I could be honest during my consultations with no fear of being lectured! I plan to continue until I reach my desired weight. I expect to reach my goal by 2017. After I reach my weight goal, I plan to remain in good health with my new found healthy way of eating the calories I need to maintain my proper weight. My Dr. is very pleased at my progress. She wondered how I have lost 30 pounds.

The people at this place have honestly saved my life. They have helped me in ways no one else could. I appreciate them for celebrating with me while holding me accountable!

My relationship with Metabolic Research center began Feb 2010 when I weighed 182 lbs and had high blood pressure. I lost a total of 69 lbs and 72 inches. It has been 6 years and I continue to maintain my weight. I owe my continued success to MRC and all the great classes, especially yoga and the continued support that I receive from the staff. I have learned that food is nothing but fuel for the body and just as with your car you need to give it the right fuel in order for it to run proper. Follow the program and it is possible to loose the weight and maintain it. Nothing tastes as great as healthy feels!

I am currently on this program and I've lost 27 pounds in 9 weeks. I am very happy losing weight and getting off my diabetes medicine. At first, I was skeptical; I kept thinking I could not do it, however, I am accomplishing and doing it. The coaches are great! I am glad that I am on the program and that they are helping me stay on track. I love this program and the people involved. I will continue to get down to my goal weight. Thank you MRC. Love you guys!
Sandra N -
I was frustrated with trying to lose weight on my own, so I signed up at MRC. I have had and am having a wonderful experience. I am currently 25 pounds down and have 9 lbs to go until I reach my goal weight. The ladies here listen to your concerns and struggles and guide you through the process. I have more energy now and feel amazing. Highly recommend MRC...do it for you!

I am so happy I made MRC in Panama City, Fl. part of my life in 2012.

Wonderful program and wonderful counseling! I hadn't had any successful weight loss in other programs until I joined MRC. If you're having problems with stubborn weight loss this is the place to go. But remember if you don't follow the program as instructed you won't get the results you want.

The staff here is so awesome. I recommend. Anyone who has doubts about weight loss they will make a believer out of you!!! #happycustomer
