Started as a single Newport Beach clinic in 1971, Lindora was the brainchild of Dr. Marshall Stamper, who was motivated by the unfortunate loss of his mother due to weight-related complications. Now, more than 40 years later, Lindora's weight-loss programs continue to bestow humanoids with a plethora of personalized nutrition plans and private one-on-one health consultations. At each Lindora location, medically trained teams of health-care professionals guide patients through lab work, health assessments, and exams to discern the most efficient trajectory into better health. Patients receive encouragement to adjust their lifestyle and behavior, and bellies stay buoyed by nutrition support and menu plans that spotlight fresh, balanced meals.
Long-term weight maintenance is the goal of the clinic's medically based programs, which means patients needn't worry about extra pounds boomeranging back into their lives like a persistent pet chinchilla. Check the FAQs page here for more information about Lindora's approach to weight loss.

What sets your business apart from your competition?
My business is one of only a few unique to Southern California that provide in-home instruction and demonstration cooking parties. Our menus include recipes that have been handed down from generation to generation. We offer a menu that ranges from comfort Soul Food to Thai Food with a twist.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I decided to start this business after completing my cookbook titled _The Dish, which is a collection of short stories and recipes that speak to how I came about developing and obtaining some of the family favorites. Completing the cookbook made me realize how great it would be to share the recipes with a live audience participating._
What’s your favorite part about your job?
The opportunity to create meals for people who enjoy the art of cooking, and to meet and make great friends.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We like to tailor our menus to satisfy the client's desired atmosphere. We interview the client about their intended guests and the vibe they would like to create for the special event.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
