Metabolic Research Center - Florida, Port Orange - Continuous buying

Posted: 2013-04-14 by    drklover1971
Complaint Rating:  88 % with 8 votes
So I'm 6 weeks into my first experience withe MRC.. So withe that said, here is what I've come to find out. What HCG and the MRC experience is, is a controlled starvation diet. Controlled starvation is a way to describe, how the body will live off the fat, and not consume many calories. Any "diet"(MRC hates theat word) that restricts fruits and vegetables, has to be weighed and looked at differently and with a fine tooth comb. Upon my initial consult and sign up, HCG(inject-able and 2 30 day rounds) and a few supplements were $1, 013.00. This was enough to last me the first 30...

Metabolic Research Center - Arkansas, Bentonville - Terrible Services & Products

The programs and services offered at this location are terrible. Not to mention the customer service. My husband and I have been treated terribly! I began the weight loss program in August, during the consultation I was promised 100% support and motivation from all staff. Week 1 I followed the preconditioning program to the letter. Went in for my first appointment the lady Veronica who took me in rudely said I didn't have an appointment and said I needed to reschedule and refused to do the appointment. I said this must have been a misunderstanding and is there someone else who can help me?...

Metabolic Research Center - Texas, Southlake - Questionable Tactics

Snake Oil, Opportunist, or a Legitimate Weight Management Programme Having a Really Bad Week?

Arguments for everyone! This round's on me!

I didn't survive being left for dead under a truck to get screwed by Metabolic Research Center in Southlake, Texas.

Joining my dog's Hit By A Vehicle and Lived to Tell the Tale Club in November 2008, my energy levels spiraled downward. As luck would have it, this came right after being laid off from a well-paying career; So I had time to recover and literally 'walk it off'.

Metabolic Research Center - Arkansas, Fayetteville - poor management

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
This is one of the most poorly ran business ever. If I could pay for this very expensive diet, weigh all my food, eat only what is on my diet drive 50 miles one way every week you would think they could be prepared. No, only 1 time almost 6 months have they had what I needed. The excuses are never good ones, if they even can give you an answer. I have asked for the manager to call me but I am not important enough. Make no mistake, I have lost weight because I have taken this diet much more seriously than they have. No, I will not pay to reup. The manager will not call you back to answer questions...

BUYER BEWARE!! they are little sales women's of there products!
1)They lied on the living social deal about providing all the supplements for the first 6 weeks. They base that on 2/day the minuet you get in there you need 3-5 /day..
2) I was supposed to receive some another supplement for free, but before I knew it I was home and paid for it.
3) Was told the hormone teat was 80$ and the year of maintenance was 179.00. Well after 3 months of not losing, I tell them I'm done, would only like the 179.00 (year of maintenance back). NOW the hormone test is 159-199, and...

Metabolic Research Center - Georgia, Columbus - Intense Itchy Rash

Posted: 2011-03-18 by    stlivingston
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 8 votes
After taking these supplements for 4 or 5 days, I broke out with a severe itch rash. My skin became red and swollen. My doctor advised me to stop taking the supplements. My skin now is very rough and brittle where i developed the rash. The worse part besides the itiching and sleepless nights, MCR does not want to return my money. I'm suffering and they don't want to give me my money back. They said I had 7 days to request my money back although I told them about it at the 5th day. Although I told them and went by to see them within 7 days to discuss my reaction. They told me to begin off...

Metabolic Research Center - Texas, Midland - Very disappointed with HCG and center

Complaint Rating:  84 % with 19 votes
Very disappointed in the center and the diet. I wish I had read the complaints before joining. I too was charged like $299.00 to join and left without one thing except what to eat for 3-4 days. During those days the diet wasn't that bad. But when you return, you have to buy all these products and given an 800 calorie diet, which is very very hard to adhere to. I was pressured to buy an extra bottle of HCG at a discounted price, and under the impression that the 2nd bottle would be needed, even though I told them I only wanted to stay on the dietn for 30 days. I have followed the diet religiously...

Metabolic Research Center - Terrible experience

My friend and I joined Metabolic Research Center in September. We did lose weight but of course we spent hundreds of dollars each month buying all the MRC pills, flaxseed oil capsules, protein drinks, etc.

Then the week before Thanksgiving I got a call saying that the people from the center in Waco had come in and closed the center down. I was told that they would come down once a week from Waco so that we could weigh in and buy supplements if we needed any. That went on for about 3 weeks and then the 3rd week in December when they were scheduled to be in Temple we went by and the...

Metabolic Research Center - No customer service

Complaint Rating:  87 % with 206 votes
I went in for an initial consultation at Metabolic Research Center in Bentonville, Arkansas. I should have known not to sign up, because the ladies in there were like 'high pressure used cars sales people'. I did sign up because I truly wanted to lose weight. They signed me up for like $239 which fit easily into my budget. After coming back 5 days later after signing up, they told me I needed $400 in supplements that were required. They also made me purchase vitamins, shakes, and other stuff. I could not repurchase each week because it is not in my budget. When my weight loss slowed, Metabolic...
