I arrived with 3 pills for high blood pressure and after the second day my blood pressure was down 40 points and I was taking only 1 pill. The staff is so caring and supportive. You feel like you are in a cocoon with not a care in the world. I will return many times.

My mother and I spent 2 weeks at Pritikin at the urging of my brother and his wife. My mother has elevated blood pressure and I would like to lose some weight. I'm not completely sure what I expected, but the experience was so wonderful, I plan to bring my children back with me so they can learn how simple it is to lead a healthy lifestyle.

There is no starving on the Pritikin plan, only sensible eating and exercise. And the folks at Pritikin make it so easy - easy to exercise - water and towels, headsets are all provided, as well as medical monitoring for those who need it. There's bowls of fresh fruit wherever you look.

The meals were delicious and we had the opportunity to try several different dishes. Daily cooking school, taught by Pritikin chefs was my favorite. The lectures were eyeopening.

I highly recommend spending the money for the 2 week program!

Room Tip: All rooms were very nice!

I have come to Pritikin for health. My blood sugar is so much better. I am on less insulin. I don't have headaches like I used to! My diabetes is under control and I generally feel so much better. The staff at Pritikin is top notch - all professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. I will definitely come back!

The pritikin center is truly amazing, BUT, its not for everyone. Must be willing to consider life changes, especially when it comes to diet and excerise. The Hotel was very comfy, the grounds are beautiful, and the people that work there, have there act together. You may think you know it all about diet and food, well, they'll change that in the first 24 hrs. My blood pressure went from "hypertension stage" to world class athlete levels in a day!!! Thats crazy. I would highly recommend it, and go BEFORE the damage is done. Yes it costs alot of coin, BUT, its cheaper than getting your chest cavity crack open, and i'm assuming ALOT less pain. The food is different. YOu better get use to feeling bloated and gassy for awhile. No caffeine makes things even tougher. I stayed for a week, but really,if you can 2 weeks is the right gauge. Seriously there all about making the change over easier, and now that I'm back home its tough, but really there's life after a cheeseburger.

Room Tip: pay the extra money and stay as close to the center as you can.

Just spent a week at the Pritikin Longevity Center. World class experts, great and healthy food, education courses, work outs and a wonderful opportunity to meet very talented people. This is a life changing experience if you want to be healthy and have a fun life. This is my second time here and I highly recommend the Pritikin programs.
