The Bouari Clinic is a franchise weight loss clinic claiming to support weight loss without supplements, packaged foods or exercise programs. What the clinic does support is HCG injections and oral spray to promote weight loss. There is no mention on the franchise website or the websites for any of the individual programs located throughout the United States, of clinical research supporting the Bouari Clinic HCG program.

We found very little information about weight loss or the program on any of the websites we visited. All expect the dieter to call for a free consultation. There are testimonials and before and after photos scrolling on the websites, but they are all the same. For instance, a Bouari Clinic in Las Vegas has the same photos scrolling as the main website for the Bouari Clinic franchise.

List of Ingredients

HCG weight loss program.

Product Features

The product description is lengthy with several references to Dr. A.T.W. Simeons. Simeons was one of the first people to promote weight loss with HCG. According to the program description, HCG targets fat stores and forces the body to use those for energy in place of other types of energy. Skin does not sag after weight loss and fat will be reduced from all those hard to trim places. Again, none of these claims is linked to any clinical research. These claims are linked to the prescription strength HCG.

The oral HCG has a completely different set of claims, including the ability to burn 2,000 calories of fat off the body. How long it takes that burn to occur is not revealed. The oral spray is a proprietary blend that promotes weight loss and cleansing. It is likely the ingredients include diuretics and natural laxatives, both are unhealthy for use when dieting.

There are three weight loss programs at the Bouari Clinic – oral spray, prescription injections and a combination of both. Dieters can sign up for a 30 or 50 day program. There is no mention of how much the program costs, but there is mention of how much weight the dieter can expect to lose. According to the Bouari Clinic, males lose about one pound a day and female between

    My friend was on this for two years and lost 40 pounds. I put out over $300 to try it myself. I quickly learned that it is just a scam of a starvation diet and some harmful pills and shots. I lost 12lbs. in a week, but anyone would if they ate so few calories and drank so much water every day. My blood pressure sky rocketed, first I had unending gas pain with diarrhea then constipation with bad leg pains. My general practitioner told me to get off it immediately. Of course my weight slowly came back on. I have liver and kidney damage. My friend is slowly gaining the weight back now that she can not find another doctor who will give her Human Chrionic Gonaditropin because they all say it is dangerous. Her original clinic has closed and the doctor left the state with several lawsuits chasing her. She goes to various dieticians and weight loss programs and everyone just tells her to eat fewer calories. She eats less than 900 a day, sometimes less than 500. I can not live like that. It is obvious to me that as soon as you go off this injection/spray/pill routine the weight comes back on, but it is because no one can survive on such a system.

    I live in Louisiana and did the diet for my wedding. I was very skeptical about this program and asked my Doctor about it. She owns a health spa and looking at her website and was surprise that her products is the exact same products as Bouari now Soza. She’s a wonderful and through doctor and if she’s using it I know it was to be trusted.
    You can now buy the product on Bouari website. That’s why the other clinics changed to Soza because you can purchase online and the clinics was losing money. Yes I lost the weight and fast and my family told me to stop because I was getting too small.

    It is not HCG! The hormone is not in their products, it simply mimics HCG. Also if people are hungry you need to call your clinic and ask questions, they are there for questions. The injections are vitamins and amino acids, that’s it! If you have leg cramps, take potassium. And everyone should be on a multivitamin anyway.

    I think Bouari is out of Business. In Philadelphia a company called Soza Clinic purchased all their old buildings. I went back because I wanted to see if it was the same and it is completely different. I am not sure if the companies are affiliated but it seems to be a brand new place.

    Okay, I am a lifetime dieter. I have tried everything—I mean everything. When I was younger, the pounds would melt away. I have done atkins years ago, with wonderful results. But since I turned 50, it doesnt matter what program I am on——how much cardio exercise I do———–I loose the first week or 2——-then maintain my +275 lbs.

    I was skeptical about this program–but I have to tell you, I am down 26 lbs in 17 days——yes it is a hard diet—but I have to say, I do believe in it. Its working.

    I am very pleased with the results

    Hi
    I live in TX, and am thinking very seriously about starting this Bouari program, I was wondring if there was a set price for starting and then is there a set price per month until that you have to pay until you reach goal? I’m justa little confused because no will say how much the program cost an individual client … I did try Nutrisystem and the roots of my teeth had gotten soft so I’m still paying the price for that, I haven’t lost any teeth yet and won’t if I have anything to do with it … are there any side effects to this diet plan?

    Hi Barbie,
    I did the Bouari program in Jan 2012 for 30 days. The chain is no longer here in the Philadelphia area (I live in Southern NJ). I lost 18lbs in 30 days. I did not take any injections, just took the daily spray and pill. I stopped taking the B-12 drops because they made me jittery. It is not an easy program–it is hard. It is best to do it when you do not have any events (January was great). You eat from a very limited quantity of food, 3x a day, with a snack 2x a day. For example, 3.5 oz. of an allowed protein and 3.5 oz. of an allowed vegetable. You cannot eat any amount of vegetables that you’d like, although there are a few ‘free’ foods that you are allowed to eat at much as you want. No starches. The positive side is that you can vary things a bit and that you are making easy simple meals, with little preparation. For example, a can of water-based tuna with 3.5 oz. of spinach. So it is easy to get a meal together and doesn’t have to be costly. The downside is that it gets boring. I was also hungry, even with the pills and drops. You will also have to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water, ex: 140 lbs = 70 oz. of water. I did not experience any side effects and it really is very healthy eating. I keep the weight off for a while; however, with a job loss later that year and some changes economically, I did put weight back on. I would like to do it again, however I think the chain was bought out here. I hope this helps you.

    Buoari is now called Soza. They are located in Cherry Hill and Washington Twp. I’ve done it and LOVED it. I was NOT hungry. It was easy to follow….NO carbs and NO oils. I made dinner for my family, prepared without oils and didn’t the eat starches if I made it for them. I have an apt to start again this week!!! I highly recommend the program!!

    In my area of South Jersey it is no longer called Bouari. It is called the Soza Clinic. I have seen pretty good results so far. I am down about 25 lbs in a month. I admit it was a bit difficult in the beginning but the doctors at SOZA edited my meals and calorie intake for me and now it is simple to stick to the plan. I would recommend trying Soza clinic. It is quite inexpensive.

    I did the diet and did lose quite a bit of weight but I have serious cramps and my electrolytes were out of whack due to the amount of water consumption and the low caloric intake. I had to stop because I was on the verge of water intoxication.

    I started program 3-18-13. I’m on my 7th week. Lost 21.4lbs and 16 inches. I’ve tried every diet this works I’m 61 yrs old my energy level is out of the roof. Try it it works. Easy to follow. Products work. If it works for me it’ll work for anyone. Yes I want my goal weight yesterday but it took longer than yesterday to put the weight on. Yes it’s costly , but the end product is weight loss. How much did it cost you to put on the weight. Hopeful by September ill be at my goal. It’s cheaper than lap band surgery then after you lose with lapband diet you have to have skin removal. Omg the pain from both surgeries and the nausea and vomiting oh he’ll no. Try this before drastic procedures and that cost

    Drink lots of water; the fat is expelled from your body through elimination (kidneys and bowels). Weigh yourself in the morning after bodily functions, before eat or drink. Don’t skip meals or snacks. Write down you caloric intake. I have days I didn’t get to 500 cals. You should never be hungry; if you are something is wrong.
    Program is pricey but you should save an equal amount on junk you don’t eat. It’s a great training tool to learn how to be conscious of what we put in our mouths. We need to learn that food is nutrition for our body, not a celebration at every meal.

    I’ve been using the program and product for 1 1/2 and I’ve lost a total of 15 lbs and still going strong. I found out about this program through Group on I payed 199$ for a voucher that only included the B12 and EDGE tablets and when I got there I talked to my Dr. And upgraded my deal for just 70$ to get the advantage spray and the injections. I love this diet and recommend it to everyone. It taught me how to eat healthy, proportionally.

    I have seen many reports on news programs and articles like this one saying that there is no information regarding the cost of the programs. This is patently not true. If you just go to the website, all of the costs are spelled out for 30 days, 60 days, and each month afterwards, and products, support, weekly visits, and services included. It doesn’t say much about the credibility and competence of the investigative reporters doing these reports if a total layman like myself found this information on the SOZA clinic’s website in ten seconds.

    I started the program 11months ago. Lost 40 pounds in the first 4 months. Have kept that off since and am slowly still losing. I have not been very vigulant the past several months. We have been traveling alot and the holidays. Everything they advertise is true. No sagging skin and even though it is pricey, it is well worth every penny if you are serious about losing and nothing else has worked. Joints, sinuses, everything feels better since I stopped eating everything white. I am about to start the program again to take off last 10 pounds. I go to the Huntsville, AL clinic and the staff is wonderfully supportive.

    I have been on this diet for 37 days and have lost 20 pounds. I have not had an issue with diarrea. In fact, if anything I’ve had the opposite of that. This is because you are not eating the fatty, greasy foods we were used to eating.. It is strict. It is tough. It does work. The question is, how bad do you want or need to lose weight? That is the question.

    It does not mean diarrhea! I have been on the protocol for 60 days and lost 40 pounds with no hunger, stomach issues or lack of energy. I am about to go on my second round of the protocol to lose the other 40 I want to lose.

    Kim, I know it’s been a while since you asked. I live in Metairie, and am currently on the 60 day program. It cost me about $485, alot, but so far so good. Today is March 30, and I am on day 35. I have lost 39 pounds so far. You take 3 sprays under your tongue in the morning and at night. 1 appetite suppressant pill each day, and 1 B-12 pill every other day. They also have a 30 day for like $369. Diet is tough for me cause I hate veggies, but I am never really hungry. More info, email me! Hope this helps!

    I started the program last week and lost 11.5lbs my first week. The Cherry Hill NJ staff has been supportive, caring and easily accessible. I find the products easy to use as well as the program itself. I am very happy with it so far and feel confident that I will reach my goal. Being a “life long” dieter and trying almost every major weigh loss program out there, I believe I finally found one that works for me.

    it’s obvious you have a personal vandetta. And very cowardly of you to go online and acuse people of bad things anonymously.

    Speaking objectively. I did the program out of the Las vegas clinic when i was visiting from the east coast. I was able to lose over 40 lbs and keep it off for the past 5 months. it was extremely easy for me to follow especially with my busy schedule as a healthcare professional.
    Good luck to everyone that tries the Bouari Protocol.

    I’m seeing so many prices. I paid $525.00 for 60 days. I never went into the clinic in Washington Township. I was hungry but did lose 27lb in two months and tons of inches. For the 15 minute phone consults total 3 I feel I paid a lot! Good Luck
