Over the years, thousands of overweight people have come to Superfit (from a few extra pounds to very severe obesity). Many of them managed to completely solve these problems, dramatically changing their lifestyle. We can boast a high percentage of success, provided participants have understood and accepted the correct principles of weight loss, admitting that there are no shortcuts, that there is no “miracle pill” or “fantastic diet” with which you miraculously lose weight even while eating anything and everything.
We are proud of the fact that our patients do not feel that they are “on a diet”, do not feel hungry, have a varied and tasty diet, do not have difficulties in applying the recommendations, lose weight steadily and in a physiological rhythm, and finally end up mastering the basic rules of a balanced lifestyle, which ensures that they maintain an optimal weight in the long run.
We don’t want to make exaggerated promises to you. We just want you to understand that just as others have succeeded, you also have a real chance to solve your weight problems.
