"Dr Leslie has been a real “health coach” for me. She has helped me peel away the layers to help me understand how I had gained all the extra weight in my life. I resisted calling her at first because I had tried many of the fad diets and weight loss gimmicks that had not worked for me. But to satisfy a friend who knew about the weight loss results at McClellan… I agreed to call her. All these pounds later, I’m glad I did! She’s helped me make a total eating lifestyle change that’s allowed me to do active things with my husband that I had never been able to do in our 15 years of marriage! I am so glad Medifast is now in Gadsden! Dr Leslie has been amazing. She’s such a great counselor, taking my calls and texting back and forth to encourage me and work through the program. If you want to lose weight and keep it off, call Dr McClellan!"

"I have been overweight my whole life. I have been on A LOT of diets but yet I found myself still struggling with my weight. I work full time and I have two small children. My life is busy and I had little time to take care of myself… or so I thought. I was introduced to this program and it has changed my life! I have lost 65 pounds on this program with the help of my health coach! I have gone from an embarrassing size 18 to a fabulous size 6! Woohoo! I now have the energy and confidence I have dreamed of… that is why I am now helping others get help for their weight problems."

“My wife came home one day and told me that she wanted me to check out a weight loss program. She had been wanting me to lose weight, but I wasn’t motivated. I decided to give it a try to make her happy. I was really happy with just how simple it was. I lost 20 pounds the first month, just by changing how and what I ate. After I had lost about 30 pounds, I felt good enough to start to going to the gym. It took me nine months to lose 100 pounds. I really feel great and have so much more energy now.”

“I was in Africa on a mission trip in April 2013. I was struck by the thought that I was in Africa trying to help people there live healthy lives, yet I was not living a healthy lifestyle myself, nor teaching my teenage daughter how to eat a healthy diet. When I returned to the USA I decided to do something about it. I had been friends with Dr. Leslie McClellan on Facebook and was impressed with her stories of healthy living and great quotes about the spiritual as well as physical and mental parts of life. She asked on day , “when you are ready to eat healthy, call me”. So I did and the rest is history.

I lost 35 pounds between April and November! I am still losing.

Her coaching and all the materials in her program has helped me learn how to cook healthier meals at home. It is so easy to lose weight on this program, and easy to keep it off! I really like the convenience of the food packages. Since I am a single Mom, I live a very busy lifestyle. I like to “ grab and go” my meals when I don’t have time to cook. It works so well for me and my daughter.

I have learned so much about our nation’s epidemic of diabetes, cancer and heart disease. The science shows a lot of our health problems are caused by poor eating habits.

Since Dr. Leslie has been such a good coach and taught me so much , I decided I would dedicate time to become trained to be a Health Coach with Dr. Leslie. I want to encourage everyone to eat healthy! There’s no time like the present to start doing something about obesity, overweight, tired, out of breath, hurting knees and joints and all the rest that goes with poor eating habits. Dr Leslie is really making a difference in my life and people I know. Please, please call her today to check out her program. You will be glad you did.

In a word- just do it!”

It’s been great for us! I saw an advertisement and called, not so much for weight loss, but to learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. Dr Leslie is really wonderful. She explains things on a person-to-person basis, not just as a doctor to patient. We like her approach! I encourage anyone committed to living healthier to call Dr. Leslie.

I was tired of being overweight. My husband had heard about Dr. McClellan’s healthy living program so we made an appointment. We both like the program because we can eat real food and don’t even get hungry. This is not a “fad diet”, but an eating plan that I can live with. Dr. McClellan has shown us both how to develop a healthy eating regimen. We really like it!

"More headaches . High blood pressure. I had just turned 30 and I knew it was time to do something about my weight. In the past I was never concerned about my eating lifestyle or my weight, I would just diet to drop 10 pounds. Then I would gain it back, plus some. A real yo-yo.

Dr McClellan’s program will change your life, like its changed mine. I really like the coaching Dr Leslie gives with phone calls, texts and in-person encouragement. I like the real food and being able to grab quick meal to keep up with my active lifestyle, while eating healthy at the same time. And, you don’t have to cook every meal.

Thanks, Dr McClellan. I’m down 4 sizes. Because of you, I’m going to have to go out and buy lots of new clothes!"

"I was thinking of giving up when I saw an ad on the internet and called the McClellans. They have literally helped save my life. For years I have tried low-fat, low-carb, low-calorie and every other kind of diet, and nothing has worked until now. Some diets are complicated but this program is easy. It’s helped me go from fat-storing to fat-burning. The McClellan’s are Christians and I can tell. They have helped me through praying with me and coaching me every day. I hope to lose my 100th pound by mid-summer. Please call Dr. Leslie if you need help losing and keeping off weight. You’ll be glad you did!"

"You wouldn’t believe how tired you can get of surgery and medication. I wanted to improve my health. Dr. Leslie has been great! I have never been on a diet before, but this is something I thought I could do. It’s been easy, and even though I’m a picky eater, I have been amazed how satisfied I have been. Heading toward losing 75 pounds and not looking back!"

"I just wanted my health back, and I was really tired of being on medications, so I was looking for a healthy solution. As a chiropractic patient at McClellan Family Chiropractic, I knew they could help me become healthy and lose weight. I have dieted before and found some of them were difficult to follow but this is easy! I am pleasantly surprised on how easily I have been satisfied and Dr. Leslie is one sweet coach. She’s the reason I’ve done so well. I am on my way to losing 100 pounds and I can’t wait!"

"After going through the change of life and quitting smoking, I wanted to be healthy and look good too – but I was still overweight, and my weight-related cholesterol was high. I had started avoiding social events and wearing all black to hide the extra pounds.

I saw something in our local paper about someone I knew who lost weight and looked terrific. He hosted a tasting, and when I attended, I saw his ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures. I started to think this could work for me too.

I saw results almost instantly! I began feeling better and had more energy. After watching me daily and tasting the food I was eating, my husband decided to join me.

My family and friends are very thankful that I discovered this weightloss method. My weight-related cholesterol is now under control after losing the extra pounds. I exercise, eat properly, and feel totally alive. I feel so much better about myself. My self-esteem is through the roof, and this has helped many of my relationships.

Knowing that I can take charge of my well-being for the rest of my life is the most important thing ever!"

"I have always been slightly overweight most of my life. As I got older, and after having three kids, I guess you would consider me, definitely overweight. Then, life happened, and the pounds really packed on! For the first time in my life, I was considered ‘obese’ and it was very difficult to face. I tried some diets, and just plain exercising myself to death, all of which did not help me lose weight. I kept gaining. I finally threw my hands up in surrender, to accept that this was my reality, and I was still a happy person, despite my weight.

The problem was, that my back started hurting, I wasn’t able to get around very easily, because I was always out of breath and tired. My husband was very worried about my health, because he could always hear me breathing hard up the stairs, and I would snore very loudly at night. The doctor also kindly mentioned that I would become diabetic type 2 very soon, if I didn’t do something. It was a frightening prognosis, because I didn’t think I could do anything. It seemed like I tried the most realistic options for me.

Then one day, I found my coach who said she could help me lose weight. I called her up and started the program in desperation. But, I truly felt skeptical that it would work. It seemed easy enough, and I liked the fact that I would have my own ‘personal’ (and free!) health coach to help me every step of the way. I felt like I needed a lot of help! Best part seemed, like I got to eat all day, and not be hungry etc. After a few days on program, everything ‘happened’ that she said would happen. I no longer craved the bad foods I used to, I did not feel hungry, and I felt a new sense of well-being and energy I never thought I could have again. I quickly lost 65 lbs (in four months!) And to date, I have lost 80 lbs!! I have kept this up for a year now, and it, honestly, has never been easier to keep the weight off! As a result of weight loss, I stopped snoring, back no longer hurts… on and on!"

"Both Mike and I had worked on trying to lose weight and be healthy, and we thought we were doing all we could but we continued to gain and get bigger no matter what we tried. Mike’s doctor was continually telling him he needed to do something more to get out of the danger zone with his cholesterol. He would try to eat better and exercise, but his cholesterol was still very high. Finally, I found this program, began to lose weight quickly and I felt amazingly energetic. I wasn’t hungry and was losing inches immediately. Mike decided to give it a go, and within 1 month due to weight loss, his high cholesterol went into the “normal” range! We both lost pounds and inches in 10 weeks. He lost 45 and I lost 25lbs. I (Heidi) went from a tight size 12 to a 2, Mike went from a 36 to a 32 inch waist and a 17″ neck to a 15 1/2″. We’ve continued to keep the weight off after 2.5 years and with this program, we intend to stay healthy for life!"

“I have always been what I considered on “the edge of pretty.” In my head I was slim, but whenever I looked in the mirror, I was disappointed – which led to a lot of sadness and anger.

In February 2010, I weighed 200 lbs. I saw a picture of myself that someone uploaded onto Facebook and was so disgusted that I “untagged” myself. I decided to count calories and cut back, writing down everything that I put in my mouth. I lost 20 lbs in five months, but then lost nothing for another six months. By the end of December, I had gained 14 of those lbs back.

We were going on our first big trip to Disney World in January, and I wanted to be able to look at those pictures and not be upset. I was on a mission to get as healthy as possible in three weeks. I chose the program after doing a lot of research online about diets that don’t cost too much and deliver fast results. By the time my vacation rolled around, I I not only looked great, but felt great, for my pictures. I was so proud of myself!

I am able to work out better and harder. I had been running and working out a lot, but now I am able to run farther and longer, and lift more weights. I also feel more confident going to the gym. I had a lot of muscular issues, soreness in my shoulders, etc. – they are a problem much less often.It’s actually overwhelming at times, because I’ve had to learn how to accept such wonderful compliments. When I see friends or colleagues who I haven’t seen in a while, they usually don’t recognize me for a minute!

I am happy with myself for the first time in my adult life. I am so proud of my accomplishment! 55 pounds lost so far!”
