“I have tried various weight loss programs in the past where you end up with minimal and short-lived results. Dr. Sam's weight loss program has been the best and most helpful. He is a wonderful coach and collaborates with you throughout the journey. He guided me through the weight loss regimen and helped me to successfully meet my goals. I am so happy and excited to share my testimonial today. I have been with Dr. Sam on the weight loss journey from the day he started writing this book, I joked with him that by the time he was done with writing, I would have accomplished my ideal weight loss. I am really proud to see the end product with the results that I have today. I feel so amazing, its an unbelievable feeling! Thank you, Dr. Sam, for making my dream come true. I believe, through this book, you will be able to transform many more lives to make lifelong changing habits to maintain ideal body weight"
