You eat real food that is nutritionally sound, tasty and served in appropriate portions. You attend lectures and exercise classes throughout the day that educate you about everything from what is a calorie to how to shop for healthy food. Too much detail for this short review but look into it if you really need to change your life in relation to your weight and or health. Local hotels have special deals so lodging is affordable while you attend the program. The staff at the DFC is excellent and they are compassionate. They are experts in obesity and health. You lose weight in a healthy way and change your relationship with food and your health. I have lost 35 pounds since I first went two years ago. It has been slow but consistent and my health is so much better. I have the DFC to thank.
