The Start

After graduating from McGill University in Montreal earning the title "Registered Dietitian", Monique Bassila Zaarour returned to Lebanon to start private dietetic counselling in 1995.

With an ever-growing demand, the first "Sohi W Sarih" clinic was established in 2008.


Our current branches are located in 2 locations in Lebanon:

  • Achrafieh
  • Elissar

With so many diets available in the market, Monique dedicates herself to changing lives by working on small behavioral changes, without deprivation nor medications, emphasizing on homemade local cuisine, daily activity and exercise in order to help each one of you reach your targets and keep the weight OFF.

For the past 10 years, Monique has helped more than 30,000 individuals reach their dietary and nutritionally related goals.

MBZ also offers a cookbook to help you cook in less than 30 minutes with a minimal work in the kitchen and maximum taste and health benefits.
