I wanted to thank you for your support and guidance over the past month or so, as I was able to reach my goal weight far more quickly than I expected. While I had a relatively small amount of weight to lose, you were able to give me the accountability to get there, where I had failed for the past few months.
I believe your military background gives you a unique perspective, always walking the line between being tough/no excuses and motivational. There are very few folks who could do the job you do. Thank you for giving me a plan that I know I need to follow for life – and the motivation to keep going. I have recommended the Genetix program many times over, thanks to you.

For me, this program is so much more than about weight loss! It truly has opened up a whole new world for me in terms of understanding who I am and what I can do if I just change my mind set! My daily check-ins with Bernice Rach have been incredibly helpful both nutritionally and spiritually. I finally have a the healthy mind set I have always wished I had. I love this program! It has changed my view completely about who I am and who I am meant to be.

Bernice, just wanted to drop a quick note to tell you that I have been enrolled in The
Genetix Program for 7-weeks and I just feel wonderful. I love the support I receive from you and all the helpful tools I am given. Looking forward to our next chat...One Happy Camper!
Just a short note to you and the Genetix Program to say thanks for my current success in losing just short of 14 pounds in my 7 weeks of following the program. I find the being accountable to an encouraging counselor on a daily basis the impetus to keep me strong in my pursuit of staying healthy and looking better. Looking forward to losing more and then keeping it off.
I started the Genetix Program on May 14, 2013. Since then I've lost 16 lbs. My recent blood test showed a reduction from the same test in June of 2012. Cholesterol went from 207 to 184; glucose went from 130 to 81; and glycohemoglobin went from 6.2 to 5.9. When the doctor's office phoned to give me the results, the nurse's comment was "whatever you're doing, keep doing it. This is great!"
I feel I owe my improved healthy cholesterol levels and new sense of well being to the Genetix Program and especially to my counselor Bernice who rocks with her encouragement, expertise and patience. She has made every difference in this being a successful experience. Bernice told me that I would never see "those numbers again" (former pounds on the scale) and for the first time in years I actually believed losing weight and keeping it off was possible!
I'm very grateful to have Bernice as my Genetix Counselor. Prior to starting on the Genetix Program, I was very frustrated because I thought I was eating right and exercising, yet I kept gaining and losing the same couple of pounds.
I realized after starting Genetix and speaking with Bernice on a daily basis that what my previous weight loss regimen was lacking was accountability and focus. Checking in with Bernice gave me the discipline to stay on my diet plan and increase the frequency of my workouts, finally causing me to lose more weight than I could have done on my own. I feel really confident and am looking forward to losing more weight and keeping it off- I know I couldn't have done it without my counselor Bernice's support!

It's my second weekend with Genetix Program Bernice and I couldn't be happier with it! I've almost lost 10lbs, I'm feeling more energetic, and my skin has cleared up significantly. I'm having my first meal off today, but I don't have any desire to go nuts. I feel completely satisfied with the food I've been eating. The most important part of the program has been learning to eat well and conscientiously.
When I crave something nowadays, I remember my progress and the cravings go away. If that doesn't work, I find an alternative that I'm allowed to have and save it for a snack or a meal, or for my day off. It's been really liberating to take control of my appetite, it's been the other way around for most of my life. Thanks Bernice! Your support and guidance has been invaluable to me!

I am one of those people that is overweight just enough that self motivation is slow in getting a foothold. Somehow I must have felt that the pounds would magically dissolve because I wasn't extremely obese. The problem I see with the other diet plans is that they don't modify my behavior. Enter the Genetix weight loss program.
Being accountable to someone as well as to myself is key to producing results. In less than 2 months, I have lowered my blood pressure from 140/90 to 102/74. My resting heart rate has dropped and so has my pant size by almost 2 sizes. I can hike 5 mountain miles without resting whereas before uphill hiking was a distant vision. And in case you're wondering, my thyroid has been defunct for many years. Once I lost the excuses and made myself my priority, magic started to happen with the help of my Genetix counselor, Bernice Rach. Bring on birthday #60!

I just wanted to say thank you for all of your help with this process. The wedding I just went to I was very nervous about it affecting my progress. But after we spoke in the morning, I felt I had a game plan and had set myself up for success with my morning and afternoon meals and snacks. I could not believe my eyes when I weighed myself the next day to find that I still lost weight.
I am definitely getting positive reinforcement from you, the plan, and for once my most dreaded enemy, the SCALE!?! I am very excited to keep working with you on my journey back to the body I had before children.

I have tried several different weight loss programs/diets over the years. Some have been successful in the short term, but none have really taught me how to manage my eating habits once I stopped "dieting", and none have had the level of accountability that is present with the Genetix Program. GX assigns you a counselor. My counselor, Bernice, has been fantastic. We talk every day, and she walks me through any of the tougher days and answers all of my questions.
I've been on the program for almost 10 weeks now, and I have lost 16 pounds. It would probably be even more - but that 10 weeks include a week long vacation and several business trips which were challenging! Not only am I getting a daily check-in with Bernice which keeps me motivated and on track, but I am learning better eating habits and portion sizes that I hope will carry over into a healthy lifestyle of maintenance when I have hit my goal. I highly recommend this program to anyone who is looking to make the change to a healthier lifestyle.

You are a breath of fresh air on my weight loss/health journey. As a 50 plus woman, who gained weight while going through my womanly changes, and the unexpected passing of my mother in the last year, (not to mention the weight I needed to lose before all of these changes), losing weight has been an overwhelming challenge.
We started working together just a couple of months ago and in that time, not only have I lost weight for the first time in years, but more importantly, I have gained a better understanding of my body and what it really needs. I now eat more fruits and vegetables and exercise on a regular basis, and for the first time I am drinking water, in large part because I know that I have to be accountable to you. In the past it would be so easy to get off track and stay off track, but now I remember that I have to tell you what I have eaten and my exercise for the day and I stay on track (even if I get off track, I am back on by the next meal before I have to talk to you). You are an amazing coach. I look forward to hearing your bright sunny voice and have a real appreciation for your genuine concern and patience. I look forward to our future success! Thanks for everything.
Thank you for your continual support, encouragement, and wisdom in guiding me with my weight loss journey. I have tried numerous weight loss programs in the past with heightened feelings of defeat, frustration and discouragement. It's wonderful to find a program where one doesn't have to count points, calories or feeling deprived where ravenous appetites take over and sabotage the plan. Losing almost 13 pounds I feel enlightened, increased energy and self esteem along with my clothes are fitting better. It's nice to even have them feel a little baggy. Also, I have knee problems and noticing not as much pain along with exhaustion. I used to be a chocoholic and now I rather have a handful of red grapes or fruit instead which amazes my husband and kids.
Changing my eating habits have been instrumental where I have more control over my emotional and or stressful moments and make wiser choices with less guilt feelings afterwards such as inhaling a bag of chips. I look forward to my daily phone calls with you which is pivotal in this eating plan and always appreciate your encouragement and helping me through my day. You have a gift in helping people achieve positive outcomes and it resonates through your dedication, passion and kindness. Thank you!!!
Have a blessed day!
I would like to thank you for doing a great job in helping me achieve my goal. During the past three months you were there as a motivator and counselor. On the days I left you a voice mail, you either called me back to talk, or you sent me a text. I feel you truly care about the people you work with on the diets. I would recommend you and this diet to anyone trying to lose weight. I started at 250 and today I am at 222lbs.
Outstanding Client Success
Thanks Bernice for all your help last week while I was traveling. With your support I was still able to lose about 5 lbs while on business travel which usually never happens! Your awesome:)

When I started this weight loss program in May 2013 I was 272lbs I am 6' 3" and need to be around 220lbs. I spent hundreds of dollars on different pills but nothing ever worked. When I signed up for the program Bernice called me and told me what to do and what I HAD to do I was not sure I could or should I say would do but I made a commitment and it was only for 3 months and I always told my kids you can do anything for 3 months or however long they were going to have to go through something to complete it.
So that is what I told myself that I can do anything for 3 months and with Bernice's help and the everyday phone call and getting on that scale everyday it drove me and at the end of our 3 months I lost 42lbs down to 230lb and now 7 months later I am still hanging in there at 232lbs to 238lbs depending on how bad I cheat on the weekend but now I know what I have to do on Monday and the rest of the week to maintain.
Thanks to Bernice I could not have done it without you. YOU ARE AWESOME!!!!!!!

I started my Genetix weight loss journey at a time in my life when I was so depressed from the recent deaths of my mom, brother and nephew, that every night after work, I sat in my comfy rocker-recliner in front of the TV making sure I experienced all the food groups – sweet, salty, crunchy, creamy, hot, cold, and frozen. It was from the time I got home until the time I went to bed, constantly eating. I ate myself up to 219 pounds, grew out of my clothes and became more depressed. I felt like I had no one to talk to and nothing to do, so I comforted myself with food, knowing I was digging myself into a deeper hole.
I have struggled with my weight my entire life. Having been on many diets, I knew another diet was not what I needed. I needed someone who could guide me emotionally and talk me through the difficult feelings I was having that were causing me to eat to feel better. Today, I have reached a weight loss of 50 pounds. I am very thankful that I found Bernice Rach and she became my Genetix weight loss counselor. So many, many days, Bernice has influenced my decisions, not only in what I chose to eat, but much more. She has an infectious attitude of gratitude and my daily interaction with her has made me such a more grateful and appreciative person and has positively affected the way I interact with others and the way I look at situations. I feel comfort knowing that I can speak with Bernice about any situation and I feel confident that she will provide a prospective that will have a positive outcome.
Bernice, I don't think you really know how bad things were for me when I first met you, but I want you to know that I am a thousand times better for having you in my life and this Genetix experience has worked for me both physically and mentally. I don't know where I would have been without your constant support, but I know I would not be 50 pounds lighter and brighter! I am thankful for you and for the Genetix Program and am living proof that it works!
