PINE HILL, NEW YORK -- My Birch Creek Health and Weight Loss Retreat review is this: Don't go! It is nothing like the website. The people running it have no qualification that I could discover, and are indifferent to the clients once they have the money. My refund check bounced and contact has been ignored. When I was there, every single guest was leaving early or demanding a refund. The electricity is overloaded and circuits blow, the rooms are cold, and the plumbing is terrible. The juice (which is the main part of the program) is simply left out for the guests in plastic bottles, while the staff disappears for most of the day.

There is no consideration for existing health issues, which is completely irresponsible. There is something really fishy about this place, and in my opinion it is a scam.

Moved From Other Review: I happened to stumble upon the very negative review posted here about Birchcreek Retreat and felt I had to respond. I have been to Birchcreek 3 times - twice in New York and once in Santa Fe, New Mexico. I was more than satisfied with my results and the customer service was outstanding - better than any other weight loss spa I have attended. Just felt like this unhappy customer was an unusual reaction from my experience.

To be honest any real weight-loss program will suggest that you don't drink juice. It's actually higher in calories than full-sugar soda. Granted yes, fructose is better for you... but many people don't realize it's still better to eat the fruit itself because the fiber will help offset the calories.

It depends upon the juice. Example V8 has less than half the calories of a coke. I'd bet the juice in question was more of a vegetable blend then a straight out apple or orange. Either way both are better for you than drinking a coke. That's just common sense.
