My stay at Pritikin has changed my life. I have been on a diet my entire life. For the first time in years I became full. I'd forgotten what it was like to eat real foods--no diet bars etc. I haven't eaten a banana or potato in years. I ate them everyday I've been here, no guilt, no gluttony. Pritikin... More

My husband and I learned a great deal about how to improve our eating habits. We had no idea the bad effects of salt and sugar on our health. Just by eating their menu and partaking in the monitored exercises we were both able to lower our blood pressure to normal, without the medication. The lectures were informative!

The soul is the memory it conjures of being a child at your mother's table eating her delicious food prepared knowing she made it full of the love she feels for you. The Pritikin Longevity Center and Spa captures... More

I stayed for 2 weeks. I have nothing but the highest praise. They changed my life. I lost weight and all my health stats improved a lot. And if you are already healthy it's a great place to learn about staying that way as we progress through life. The trainers and the medical staff were excellent and extremely helpful. The... More

I came back to Pritikin to re-tune my eating habits. The staff, food, lectures, and knowledge I get while I'm here is invaluable. The accommodations are excellent. But the big reason for being here is to learn to live a healthier lifestyle through exercise and improved eating habits. I already workout with a personal trainer, but he doesn't have the... More

I decided to stay at Pritikin not because I am overweight, or have hypertension or diabetes, I came to eat healthier, education myself on good healthy food choices and start exercising again. Pritikin encompasses health, mind and body. We are poisoning our bodies with excess salt, sugar and oil in processed foods. Pritikin has wonderful lectures teaching us how to... More
