The Dietscienceleader program is a portion-controlled, reduced-calorie comprehensive weight loss program. Please consult your physician before beginning the Dietscienceleader program, or any other weight loss program, as changing your diet or exercise, or losing weight, may affect some medical conditions and medications. Your physician may need to adjust your medications due to changes in your diet, exercise, or weight while on this program. As a general guideline, we also recommend taking a multivitamin as a part of your Dietscienceleader program for optimal health. You should discuss your continued participation in the Dietscienceleader program with your physician if there is any change in your medical condition. Click here here to download information that you can share with your physician about the Dietscienceleader program.
It is important to note that medical studies indicate that people 20 percent or more above their ideal weight are at increased risk of many illnesses or diseases, including coronary heart disease, heart attacks, diabetes, increased cholesterol levels, high blood pressure, strokes, gallbladder disease, kidney disease, neurological disorders, gout, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer. It is also important to be aware of certain risks that have been associated with weight loss. Any weight loss program may cause constipation, muscle cramps, dehydration, diarrhea, dizziness, dry or cold skin, fatigue, gallbladder inflammation or gallstones, gout, hair loss, headaches, heart palpitations, loss of lean body mass, irregular or stopping of menstruation, reduced tolerance to cold, as well as other possible side effects. Please be sure to eat all of the food that is recommended on the Dietscienceleader program. Failure to follow the program protocol and eat all of the food recommended may increase the risk of developing serious health complications.

- Resolving Disputes – Arbitration
Most customer concerns can be resolved quickly and to the customer’s satisfaction by calling our customer service department at 1-516-777-0612 If Dietscienceleader’s customer service department is unable to resolve a complaint you may have to your satisfaction (or if Dietscienceleader has not been able to resolve a dispute it has with you after attempting to do so informally), we each agree to resolve those disputes through binding arbitration or small claims court instead of in courts of general jurisdiction.
All disputes or claims that arise under or relate to these Terms and Conditions (whether in contract, tort or otherwise, whether past, pre-existing, or future, and including statutory, consumer protection, common law, intentional tort, injunctive, and equitable claims) will be resolved either in small claims court or by individual arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”). Unless you and Dietscienceleader agree otherwise, any arbitration hearings will take place in the county (or parish) of your billing address. The AAA Rules are available online at adr.org, by calling the AAA at 1-800-778-7879. Dietscienceleader agrees that it will pay a consumer’s filing fee for the arbitration.
You agree to arbitration on an individual basis. In any dispute, NEITHER CUSTOMER NOR DIETSCIENCELEADER SHALL BE ENTITLED TO JOIN OR CONSOLIDATE CLAIMS BY OR AGAINST OTHER CUSTOMERS, OR ARBITRATE OR OTHERWISE PARTICIPATE IN ANY CLAIM AS A CLASS REPRESENTATIVE, CLASS MEMBER, OR IN A PRIVATE ATTORNEY GENERAL CAPACITY. If any provision of this arbitration agreement is found unenforceable, the unenforceable provision shall be severed, and the remaining arbitration terms shall be enforced (but in no case shall there be a class arbitration).
The arbitrator shall be empowered to grant whatever relief would be available in court under law or in equity. Any award of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on each of the parties, and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. This transaction and the arbitration shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act 9 U.S.C. sec. 1-16 (FAA).
Waiver and Severability
No waiver by Dietscienceleader of any of the terms and conditions set forth in these Terms and Conditions shall be deemed a further or continuing waiver of such term or condition or a waiver of any other term or condition, and any failure of Dietscienceleader to assert a right or provision under these Terms and Conditions shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision.
If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason, such provision shall be eliminated or limited to the minimum extent such that the remaining provisions of the Terms and Conditions will continue in full force and effect.
Governing Law and Jurisdiction
These Terms and Conditions shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, without regard to its conflict of laws rules.
Dietscienceleader may deliver notice to you under these Terms and Conditions by means of electronic mail, a general notice on the site, or by written communication delivered by first class U.S. mail to your address on record in your Dietscienceleader account.
