I spend one week at Pritikin. I am young and in good health, but I viewed this as a learning and prevention trip. It didn't hurt that I lost 5 lbs in a week (mostly water weight). The menu is no salt and no fat, but you get used to it. The lectures are super informative and there is a... More

The staff was very welcoming and friendly. I didn't think that I could go a week without sodium, but after 3 days you start to really enjoy the natural tastes of foods without it. The great benefit of not using sodium is that it lowers your blood pressure. I stopped taking my blood pressure medication without any complications. I will... More

2 weeks is what is recommended, and I would suggest people stay for the 2 week program as opposed to just 1 week. The physical facility is a bit strange, with the dining room in a weird atrium with a weird floral scent pervading everything, and the hotel room is a 3 minute walk away, in the Trump Doral complex....

I spent 2 weeks here at Pritikin Longetive Center. I learned a lot about myself and how to restore my health. I would recommend it highly if you're interested in reducing your blood pressure and cholesterol The information is provided in a manner that is easy to understand yet backed by research and experience. The surroundings are pleasant and the... More

The program is designed for 2 weeks, however 1 week packages are sold. This creates some logistical issues. Like having your discharge visit without the benefit of the latest lab results to monitor any changes in the week you are there. There are gaps in communication with the medical staff, causing misunderstanding regarding scheduled tests. Overall the program is effective.

I am happy you found the program effective. Unfortunately the timing of the last lab does not arrive until after departure but the results and your doctor's notes are made available on the patient portal. We are consistently working to make the medical portion of the program more efficient and appreciate your insight on the medical staff. In case you... More

Another excellent visit with my wife to continue on our journey of learning and maintaining good health and lifestyle choices. The medical staff, cooking professionals and PhD level lecturers are wonderful and super-dedicated to the Pritikin philosophy that is solidly based in science. We love the results and have embraced this lifestyle (not a diet) for years now.

This is a true health spa, located on the grounds of the Doral hotel and golf resort, but quite separate. All the focus was on the health and well-being of the Pritikin guests: healthy food, exercise program, and nutrition and health lectures. Incredibly valuable experience. Positive jumpstart to better health. Very comfortable for a solo traveller. Hotel room was also... More

What an incredible experience... where to begin?! Knowledge: I first value the evidence-based knowledge that Pritikin delivers in its daily lectures. Learning the biological/physical mechanisms behind weight loss, diabetes, hypertension and coronary diseases is essential to reinforcing the principals of leading an active and healthy lifestyle. Presentations were supplemented by informative handouts and guest guidebook. Exercise: One of my favorite... More
