The Sadkhin Complex is a diet fad that is designed to help the user achieve a safe, rapid loss of weight. This diet uses acupressure to control hunger. It also tries to cleanse your system and synchronize organ operation. This plan changes your eating habit, and the website for this diet claims that you can lose ten percent of your body weight within just ten days. Users are very skeptical and for good reason. The Sadkhin Complex uses just acupressure and a healthy, balanced diet. This diet can be followed fairly easily, but many people believe that the outrageous weight loss claims are impossible. Overall, this diet fad presents a great theory, but the reality is that this diet is not possible, and any results that you do experience will quickly fade as soon as you get off this diet.

    I lost 12 lbs the first 10 days, 10 the next and lost a total of 38 lbs in a short time! I felt energetic and great! You need to be on their maintenance prigram which is basically a healthy diet which is good but leaves little room to have any of the stuff humans crave now and then. It’s good if you go back for periodic exams and do the original plan every 7-12 months to maintain. I wasn’t able to do that so did gain the weight back! I’d suggest this for a great head start and motivator and then after a month or so and having lost a nice amount of weight, going to weight watchers to take the rest off more slowly and permantently!

    I went on this program two years ago and was totally engrossed with it. I did everything that was recommended right to the exact detail and yes, I lost weight very quickly, lost almost 20 lbs. in 10 days. I was excited to have found the miracle of diets. Then came the boom…..I stood up from my bed and started down the hallway (my grandson was spending the night) and said, “This isn’t me” and collapsed in the hallway, hitting my head on the corner of a large picture frame which was up against the wall. Thank goodness he was staying with me that night as he called my daughter and she came racing over to find me on the floor. She called EMS and the rest is history. I had health issues before the diet and never should have been on such a strict and unsafe program for someone who had health problems as myself. Eating the very limited fruits and veg. for 2 days and then just 3 glasses of milk for 2 days and repeat, was insane. Maybe for some, the result was not as severe as mine and I wish them much luck. Those who do have health issues, please check with your doctor before you go on this program and if he says yes, then you are the lucky few and I wish you much success.

    Technically this diet does work I lost about 60 pounds in 5 months BUT this diet doesn’t teach you the proper way to eat so as soon as I went off the diet I started gaining back weight. I decided to go back on the diet to lose more weight. My biggest problem with this diet is that it took away my hunger so severely that at one point I literally started forgetting to eat which might not sound that horrible but before I even reached my goal weight I developed an eating disorder which continued on for 8 months until I finally got help and now almost a year later am still struggling trying to recover. So this diet is definitely not worth it: it’s not healthy, you will most likely gain back the weight you lose, and possibly develop an eating disorder. I know several people who tried this diet most of whom are still struggling with their yoyoing weight and one other who is also struggling to recover from an eating disorder.

    Sadkhin Diet really works. I personally took off 20 lbs in 5-6 weeks, but my body definitely shrunk and I can now wear at lest 1-2 sizes smaller clothes. Like any serious “project”, it requires strong motivation and determination. Also requires self discipline, but the mind can do miracles!
    In addition, you really change your view of food shopping, taste, the meaning of food to you. I’ve become more rational and conservative in planning the amount of food purchased, so that it’s always fresh. I greatly respect this diet.

    I have lost a total of 41 lbs under the Sadkhin Diet. The real challenge is being disciplined and not forgetting to rotate the accu-pressure balls every 2 hours. It truly suppresses your appetite.

    It works . Most ppl aren’t disciplined so they say it doesn’t work. Yes it does . If after 2 days you give up.. Of course it didn’t work . Myself and 6 friends did it and we all lost quickly .. Discipline.. Either you have it or you don’t .. But, dont bash the system it has helped so many ppl gain their health and confidence back..

    “To each his/her own” – I’m on the plan now, my weight was 198 on the first day. Four days later my weight went down to 191. I’ve been tempted by, cake, fried chicken and pizza’s. My mindset is, if I eat just a small bite of either one of these items, I’ll blow up to 200lbs in a heartbeat!! You have to use the balls, you have to eat how and when the plan states..NO CHEATING. Everybody is different-what works for you, may not work for me!! But I’m determined and strong willed, so this one’s working for me and that’s one of the main points you MUST have to be successful with Dr. Sadkins plan.

    Yes, people,
    Dr Sadkhin is a real person and yes is is a real doctor.
    He is at at the office on Ave U in Brooklyn everyday. I found him to be an approachable person who is committed to diet and your good health.

    He is a sincere older Russian gentleman and is not a fake salesman pushing the latest product on the market.

    The diet is real and simple to follow. But it has its challenges and may not be for everyone. 2 days yogurt and honey 2 days vegetables works but it was tough.

    But once you get over the hump its not so bad. I dropped 10 lbs in the first 3 weeks. You just have to want it

    This diet plan works…I was able to drop 35 pounds in 2 1/2 months…and felt great doing it. My friends saw me and started on the plan….I now have at least 6 friends that are on an average of 30 pounds lighter and feel great! I had tried every diet in the book for the last 15 years and nothing worked like this. But the most important factor is that this is a LIFESTYLE CHANGE. If you eat like before, you’ll look like before. Please try it…it might work for you…and ultimately keep you off meds.

    I think everyone is taking the wrong thing away from this diet. Every diet is a fad diet that does not incorporate a healthy lifestyle change. However, I don’t see why you can’t jumpstart a lifestyle change with a few pounds in the bucket. Clearly you will gain all of the weight back and more if you just stop the diet and go back to your old habits. In order to sustain your results you will have to work out duh…

    Let’s use an exaggerated example: if you intake 4000 calories a day and without working out burn 2000 calories a day, you will gain weight. If you do this diet and drastically lower your calorie intake to 500 and still burn that 2000, you will lose weight.

    Now let’s say you’ve done the diet, lost the weight and are going back to a healthy diet, not like before, and you are adding exercise: 1600 calorie intake, 2000 calories burned plus an extra 600 or so (since working out causes you to continue to burn more calories after you stop) from the treadmill and what do you have? a sustainable weight and/or continued weight loss.

    Let’s use our brains here…

    I have been on the program for 3 weeks.
    I am in the medical profession(Doctor) and was at 1st skeptical about it. Well let me tell you this works at so many levels. First my energy level is at an all time high. My hunger pains area all but gone. I have lost over 15 pounds from 180 pounds. I feel cleansed. Don’t pay attention to the disgruntle employee who worked for Dr. Sadkhin. I have also met Dr. Sadkhin and believe in his principles of weight loss. You do need the balls and with without them you would starve. I have met countless clients of Dr. Sadkhin and they are very pleased with the results. There is no scam here as the prior employee tried to insinuate.

    I have tried the diet with much success about a year ago without the balls. I lost 20 pounds in 10 days. It was not easy, I was hungry the first 4-5 days, especially those milk days but after day 5 I had already lost I did stick with it. I did not go back for maintenance phase what I did do was slowly phase lean chicken and fish back into my everyday diet. I did not gain the weight back. I am going to do the 10 day initial diet again because I want to lose some quick weight. This, just like any other diet, will not work for everyone and requires a certain amount of discipline. I believe it is solely up to the individual.

    I have used this diet a few times with and without the balls I live in ny and I have met with him. He is very smart and his diet is the only diet that ever works for me. I lost 35 lbs in 30 days after I had my daughter and I lost 20 lbs right before my wedding in 3 weeks. Whenever you come off any diet you need to watch what you eat or you will gain. I am now on the diet again I’m on my 7th day and 6 lbs lighter. It works and it is real

    Anytime you go from 2-3000 calories a day to 500-800 you are gonna be hungry. Do the plan , lose the weight. Go off right( maintenance) it want come bk. Too many commercials tell us to eat what we want & lose weight. This is not even healthy .If you are looking for a magic pill or a pizza , ice cream, cake, pasta diet this is not the one. I am on day 5 and down 9 lbs.. Wanted to lose a few more lbs ..Hooray!!!

    First of all my body could not take any concentrated sugar ie honey,syrup.It gives me severe joint and body and weakness.As for the balls -joke-was not controlling any hunger.and so for 20 days,i was not able to function.i was fuzzy in my mind ,very weak.I complained,I was told this was a booth camp ,no compassion.Its a one size fits all.However well this diet was supposedly good for some people.There needs to be a qualified Dr on sight to collaborate with clients every so often,so people in ignorance,do not die while on this diet.By the way i did not loose if any weight.

    Sadkhin does work.
    I lost ten lbs on it in about 2 weeks.
    I look better and feel better
    However it is not for everyone

    I like the fact that you are eating fruits and veggies and milk.
    Items you buy at the store.
    I DO NOT TRUST any juices or supplements that others offer.

    These are expensive, un-tested and who knows how and where it is made.
    I am not putting that in my body.

    Sadkhin requires discpline and you will feel the hunger pains, but they do subside. That is why its called a diet.

    I just started the Sadhkin diet Oct. 22, 2011 and weight my heaviest of 278. I know this will work for me because I haven’t lost weight on any other diet and I have to get rid of it once and for all. I have saw people at my job lose and kept the pounds off. I know once you finish the maintenance part of it you can’t start back eating junk food and not exercise. You will gain weight back no matter what. We already know that junk food isn’t good for us anyway and just have to learn how to live without eating it like you have before. Eating healthy is the goal anyway, so stop complaining about weight you gained if you don’t watch what your eating. I will post my weight lost in 9 days. Yes it will be hard but I’m sick of being tired ad obese.

    I have also worked for Dr. Sadkhin. And let me tell you something… he is a pure GENIUS and it was my honor working for him as he is a very easygoing and kind practitioner and man. He does not wish harm or to be a crook. His diet was the only diet that worked for me and it was fast and effective. I did gain weight, but that was over 2 years course, and it was because I didn’t watch what I ate and I also didn’t do maintenance. His program is designed to DETOX you, and also program your mind on food so that once you come off it, you can’t go back to eating the garbage you ate, or of course you’ll gain it back. I am back on his diet as of today, and it has been the easiest diet for me to follow and the most rewarding and effective. He truly cares about his patients and helping people achieve results. He’s changed my life when I discovered his invention, and it was my pleasure working for him. He is humble, kind, and good hearted. Anybody who disagrees, go back on your old diets and see how much you achieve…….most people quit. Remember, if you follow his directions, and WATCH what you eat once you come off the diet, you will NOT gain it back. While you’re on this, your body should learn not to crave bad foods anymore, and your stomach shrinks. You should look at this diet as a jump start to a new lifestyle because once you come off it, you MUST change your ways of eating, and this program helps you do so.

    I’ve been going to Dr. Sadhkin in NYC for over 15 years. Yes it works. Yes you absolutely need the balls. It took me years to gain the weight back and that was because I just ate without any discipline for years. If you have access to the balls and you feel hopeless and need to feel there is some way you can succeed then go ahead – it really works in a way nothing else does. But when you stop going you have to continue some kind of discipline, which you won’t really have learned – weight control is a lifelong issue. One thing I heard today at the office was “If you learn not to eat when you are not hungry, and to stop when you are no longer hungry but not full, then you will never have a weight problem. How many people eat when they are hungry and stop before they are full – so obviously no matter what you do you are going to have to contend with emotional eating and pigging out. Our concept of portion size is way way way out of line. Two bites of most things fulfill the craving. After that it is just stuffing.

    Wow are you serios about that? I hear the commercial everyday and decided to call and make an appointment. But from what I’m reading this diet is nothing more than a receipt I receive from someone who needed to rapidly loose weight to join the military. It worked, it was free and I lost 10 lbs in a week. But now I’m scared of gaining it back due to what I’m reading….

    [Reply]

    ExoticblaqueX

    Listen. Why don’t you try it for a month, and just see if after that you gain it back. Maybe I was different I don’t know. But I never seem to find any people talking about how they KEPT it off, only how they LOSE. I also lost 25 lbs, and gained 50. Try a smaller number, like 10 lbs… and see once you come off it if you not only gain it back, but see if you can maintain eating healthy after that, because I know when I came off it I was starving for everything in my path. I don’t know. But 10 lbs should be a safe test. Give it a shot…. I have much more I need to lose now, and I’m also afraid to go back to him although I do know I can drop 80 in 4 months…. I’m scared to gain back 160 now. How is it that I gained 50 when I lost 25? I don’t know if the numbers always double or if it was just because of how hungry I was afterwards….but Stay on it for a month and if it all works out for you, then best of luck! I am not on here to discourage anybody……just pointing out some obvious tips…. even HE will tell you, once you come off his diet you still need to fast 2 times a week, and also visit him every year to “keep the weight off”…

    Again, for those of you who chose to not read… I worked for Sadkhin and got the treatment for free… lost 25 lbs in 3 weeks. Gained 50 back once I came off. All the fat you’re losing is not burned, it’s stored. The minute you start eating even REGULAR healthy foods again, your body will react to them as if you’re stuffing your body with 10 big macs, because it is not used to ANY calorie/fat intake. You’re going from eating like 100 calories a day to eating 1000 average, once you start eating healthy foods again. Your body regardless will gain weight to that because the fat that was stored in your body was there because it was in starvation mode, once you’re out of starvation mode, all those fats will come back out and you will gain extra weight just from eating normal food again because the body is not used to using that food as form of energy now. I’d do it again now… but I’m sorry I don’t wanna be 300 lbs once I come off it. TAKE IT FROM SOMEONE who’s worked for him for 3 yrs. I cannot disclose my name as it was part of the contract to not breach confidentiality.

    Did you do the maintenance step where you add fish and have only one ball that you do not rotate before you started eating again?

    [Reply]

    ExoticblaqueX

    Well OBVIOUSLY if I was personally working for him as the receptionist and his assistant. I knew this diet and all the skeems behind it better than anybody, because I was the one dealing with the press. This is a FAD diet. You can do maintenance all you like, but it is PHYSICALLY impossible for your body to NOT gain anything back the minute you start to add calories and carbs and fats to your body again. It is just part of science. The fat in your body on this diet is not burned, it is stored because your in starvation mode so your body starts to eat off what it has stored. When you start eating regular foods again, it blows up like a balloon because it reacts to the new foods as a “shock” to the body, since it never had any calories or fats eaten before. ANY diet, needs to be permanent and maintenance for life if you want it to last for the long run. Sadkhin is a good guy. I enjoyed working for him. However, this diet is not for the long run, but def the quickest shortcut to great amount of weight loss in a short period of time. You cannot fight physics and science, and this is why no matter who you are or what you do, when you eat practically nothing for weeks or months, and then suddenly add on healthy real foods again, your body will add on the stored fats PLUS the new foods you’re eating due to it being in starvation mode for so long. You never wanna be in starvation mode, or it will come back 10x harder.

    This diet like any other, if you overeat you will gain it back. There is not and probably never will be a diet that will keep the weight off forever.

    I lost over 40 pounds with Sadkhin and maintained my weightloss- I even loss 10 more pounds without following program and have been able to maintain. It’s been a lifestyle change for me. I’m now going for losing my last 40 pounds and I’m back on Sadkhin after a 5 month maintenance phase AND NOT following their maintenance. It’s a jump start to eating healthy and aligning your palate to what’s really need for healthy living.

    The fat is “stored” in your body? Where? In the anti-gravity portion of your body? Without commenting on the efficacy of this diet, your comments make no scienitific sense. Your body does not “store” fat away somewhere where it can’t be measured by a scale. Thank goodness for Dr. Sadkhin you no longer work for him.

    I have been on this diet now for 60 days and have lost 58 lbs. I have 5 young children and have let myself go for 5 yrs. I did this diet once, w/out the balls when I nursed my daughter due to her severe food allergy issues, and did everything this has but it included chicken and fish. I gained weight back due to more pregnancies and giving up the eating habits. YES it is strict BUT once you choose to make that life change, its worth it. When I did it b4 I was starving all the time, so I believe the balls DO help. My goal is to continue to lose weight, be healthier and then continue to maintain my weight through fruits, and veggies and continueing to cut out the grains as those make me very tired anyways, and adding fish and chicken. I do not mind the diet, once you are in the weightloss mindset – its not that bad. The beginning is hard. Now, its good and exciting. Adding time at the gym everyday has made it even more enjoyable and a total lifestyle overhaul. My kids notice a difference, my husband does for sure ;) and I do too! Things fit me and my clothes are falling off that were my “transition” clothes! It works…

    This diet is unrealistic. Another girl in the nursing program is on it,yes she did lose 15 pounds, but I don’t know how she will ever be a nurse if she doesn’t understand basic weight loss. She 130 pounds and a former annorexic. You’ll gain all the weight back. Putting balls behind your ears does nothing to the hypothalmus. Its in the middle of the brain, little balls wont affect it. Try sparkpeople.com It is free and you can SAFELY lose weight and eat whatever you want. It is dangerous, stay away

    Tried this diet and all I can say is that you can do this yourself. The balls behaind my ears did nothing for me but make my ears hurt. If you wanna loose weight fast, try this on your own. People please save your money. Anyone who eats apples, lettuce, tea and whole milk can loose weight without spending 100-200 dollars every ten days.

    I totally agree because I tried it once but didn’t stick with it. But about about te different types of vitamins that they give you during the different seasons? Are the vitamins necessary???

    Don’t ever try this diet, my relative almost died while on this diet.Doctors said that the diet developed holes in the fat that protects intestines, than the intestine got stuck in one of the holes and stopped the blood supply to the intestines and other organs. She had most of her intestines removed and now we are just praying for her to get better. Please don’t try this diet.

    I have been on the diet for exactly 7 days now and I am down 15 lbs. I can’t believe it, I started on 04/11/11 at 206. Today is 04/18/11 and I am at 191. I love this diet and most of all I can drink white wine. My goal is 140, so I have 51 more to take off. This diet is very easy and it’s all about will power.

    i have personally WORKED for Dr. Sadkhin, and I only wanted to lose 25 lbs, which I did lose on his diet, within 1 month. Once I came off it, I gained 50 lbs back within the year, and am heavier than I have ever been in my life! My cravings became CRAZY after the diet and it is almost impossible to control your hunger or eat at a normal healthy pace after just eating veggies for a month. I urge you not to do it because the minute you come off it, you will be starving and eating everything in your path. and even if you won’t eat everything in your path, if you eat ANYTHING that is not fruits or vegetables, you will gain the weight so rapidly plus double. You know why? Because your body is not losing weight. You are just storing fat in your body while on this diet, and the minute you come off it, your gaining weight from other foods you start to eat other than vegatables as well as the stored fat you had in your body the whole time, because you never burned it off. This diet is great for quick rapid results, but def not for long term, and I wish I was where I was before I started this diet. I rather be chubby than be obese now.

    Really where did you work ?? I also feel the same last year it worked so well for me. Now it seems I can’t lose weight with the balls on !!

    I have a hard time believing that someone who went in weighing 250 lbs and walks out weighing 150 lbs has not lost fat, but stored it. My scale is already telling me different with a fat %. I have seen lots of reviews of people who have kept the weight off after. Who’s to say you wouldn’t have overeaten and gained this much weight if you had NOT been on the Sadkhin Complex? Don’t discourage people who really need the help. I know I would never have lost this weight with any other plan…because I wouldn’t have seen the weight come off fast enought to keep me going.

    One’s body doesn’t hide fat; you either lost it or you didn’t. Fat cells do come back easily but 50lb gain after a 25lb loss should have come back much more rapidly than one year! It sounds like her body was trying to keep it off. Perhaps the OP should have remained on the plan for a longer period.

    I have been looking at the google hours all i find it this is a one franchising company. And there is nobody such as dr sadkhin.. There isn’t even real doctors there..When u go there they are making you sing a paper to say ” they are not doctors, if something happens to you, they are not responsible”
    I have tried to do it it is not possible. Don’t do it! It is ll money trap..i was starving i quit today! It doenst work! they they are dleting any negative comments:(

    I lost 30 pounds in 40 days, most of it during the first 10 days (14 lbs). I tried this diet because I would get discouraged with others at the slow pace. It was a little difficult, not because I was hungry just because I wanted to eat other things. I was determined to stick with it though. I’m now on the maintenance phase. Whether or not the weight stays off will be up to me and my future choices of what I eat.

    The only problem I’ve had is a lack of a BM now for over a week yet I keep losing weight. Has anyone else experienced this? I don’t feel bad or constipated so I’m wondering if I could just be burning up everything I’m eating?

    Did you use the balls behind your ears or on your own? I am going to start Monday without the balls.

    You need the balls. They help control your hunger…

    When this first came out and the yexpanded into Beverly Hills I attended the center, paid the money, got the balls and went on program. The balls fell off within 3 days. I stayed on the food program and lost 15 pounds in the first 10 days. Went on to lose 13 more over the full 45 days including maintenance. You do not need the balls. They do help with acupressure and slight hunger control, but after using this program without them for 8 years now to maintain weight, I am a firm believer that they are completely unnecessary. If you are determined to stick it out and can make it past day 1 and 2 you’ll be fine. I know many people who have converted and use his as their sole maintenance diet aid. Good luck and fill us in on your results!

    Please don’t do anything without the balls because you will starve. The whole point of the balls is to stop you from being hungry and also keep your brain functioning well. The therapist specifies that the balls are very important to maintain health. On the upside, I lost 15 pounds in the first ten days!

    You definitely need the balls. I am on the program right now and you need someone who is certified in the Sadkhin Complex Method. You just can’t get any old acupressure expert. It’s amazing. I’ve already lost 12 pounds and it’s only been 5 days.

    constipation has been a problem too for 5 days. I finally had a small one. I like the loss of weight quickly. I am older and it takes months to lose 5 pounds on other diets. It is obvious that maintenance and healthy lifestyle changes are required afterwards. there is no panacea to weight loss

    If you follow the diet it works. It’s two days fruits and vegetables and two days milk. You’re never hungry and you lose weight very quickly. I totally recommend it.

    I lost 30 pound on the Sadkhin diet in just over a month. It was a drastic diet but you see results quickly which keeps you going. I LOVE the results! Now that I stopped following most of the diets rules I was worried about gaining the weight back but instead I have lost 3 more pounds in the past week and a half! The key is that I get full very fast thanks to the diet! If you have the money to do it and want FAST results, DO IT!

    I am on diet now. Lost 10 pounds but not using his diet to the
    Letter. I am eating chicken lean on all fruit and veg days. Also have a lot of joining pain since the beads and concerned. I don’t think this diet is the healthiest as far as eating goes. Your body needs protein. But the beads help with app suppressant. So use them for suppression and eat healthy or when u get off this you will gain a ton of weight. I did this diet 8 years ago and lost 30 pounds. I put it back quickly as your body doesn’t handle adding food back well. I am concerned about side effects from the beads not the diet and am researching now. I have beard you can have hair lOss from it.but want to.know about inflammation and irritability and fatigue. Please let me know if you have experIenced these symptoms. Also tread lightly with the diet and modify it if you have Concerns as it is a shock to the body and you will gain weight after diet unless you really are careful.
