Statements from consultations with Jens-Christian Holm
"Jens-Christian Holm, as an adult I have frequented you and your team in the Dr Holm Clinic, and have followed the "Holbæk model". I came in treatment with you for 1 year and now have had a total weight loss of 55 kilos since I started with you in January. 2019. This without the use of medication. For me, it has been the best help I have received in terms of my overweight ever. I am very grateful to have been able to consult a doctor who listened and understood my illness."
"For info for those who wonder who Jens-Christian Holm is, then our personal experience from The Paediatric department at Holbæk is that here you meet a doctor who is so thorough and a doctor who is dedicated and says things as they are and a doctor who understands how to talk to young people so that they are along all the way."
"I am so thankful after my 1st consultation with Jens-Christian Holm. As you undoubtfully have heard several times, it is crucial for a person living with overweight FINALLY to be heard and seen in the right light – to be taken seriously. Besides defining obesity as a chronic disease, I embraced 2 other take home messages:
I'm all onboard - have implemented all the points and am full of faith in the impact of the plan. Goodbye to all the unhealthy habits in one go. Jens-Christian, you are quite unique and have developed something unique; I already think you know that, but I still feel a need to give you feedback on your motivation:
You are committed, present and seem genuinely interested in me and my special challenges.
You communicate at my level rather than a standard lecture; and for people who already know several things from your book, etc. - you do not waste time and start at the right level.
Good alternation between 'lecture' / theory and the practical part.
Good humor and energy in a wonderful combo with slight confusion and a little crazy in a wonderful way.
You really make an impact; you're clearly putting your foot down and now I understand how just one consultation with you can make a difference."

"My daughter, her father and I went to a consultation with you last Monday.
I just want to tell you a few lines about how my daughter experienced it.
She has previously had to be persuaded to go to consultations, because she doesn’t think it is nice to be told/dictated what she may and may not eat.
But last Monday we saw a completely different girl after your consultation.
My daughter said, in her own words, that you were tough (in the good way) and that you were honest and that she finally got a clear message in such a way that made her feel good and she was even comfortable with the fact that she has to come back for the next consultation.
To use her own words, she said she thought you were a good doctor and she had great respect for you, because you were honest and helped so many children.
I just think you should know!”
