Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program

Personal Success Story

 

Lois' Story

Total Weight Loss: 35 lbs

What has your past experience been with weight loss attempts?

I've tried various diets but could never stick with any of them. I didn't have anyone to hold me accountable and therefore didn't give any diet 100% commitment.

Why did you decide to try Ideal Protein?

I had a family member do the protocol and receive quick results. The protocol was explained to me and "it just made sense". Once it was explained that if I follow the "rules" 100% it impossible for it to NOT work, I was committed.

What has 'clicked' for you with this diet protocol?

Once I understand how my body prefers to fuel itself - and how carbs are the preferred fuel source - it really made sense why other diets didn't work for me. This protocol is really easy to follow.

How has this journey to date changed your life?

I feel like a completely different person. I have energy now, I sleep much better, I rarely have headaches (which was a very common occurrence in the past). I feel so much more confident and I like myself a lot more. I'm enjoying my new wardrobe, too.

Would you recommend this protocol to a friend and what would you say are the most helpful parts?

Absolutely! The seminar and the coaching play a huge part in my success. The seminar made it all make sense and I realized I was not alone.

 

Janice's Story
Herndon Surgery Center
Total Weight Loss: 62.4 lbs

What has your past experience been with weight loss attempts?

I have tried a number of diets in the past without any real success. I would briefly try something, get minimal results and would give up. Then I'd end up gaining all the weight back and sometimes gaining a little extra!!! For me most diets were hard to stick with because I would get discouraged by the slow weight loss.

Why did you decide to try Ideal Protein?

Ideal protein was being offered to us as employees and it was going to be housed in the office I worked in. How convenient was that?? It almost seemed like a sign…… Since it was being offered I researched it online. I was pleasantly surprised by all the positive reviews it had. There were so many success stories that I thought maybe it could work for me.

What has 'clicked' for you with this diet protocol?

This diet really clicked for me when I realized how easy it is. My breakfast, lunch and evening snack were provided to me. I was a little worried that I wouldn't like the food or it would taste funny, but I was pleasantly surprised. I've found packets that I really enjoy. The food is good! The only meal I had to plan with this diet is my dinner, and that's easy, just protein and veggies. It doesn't get much easier than that. After losing a little over 15 pounds within my first month I was a believer. I'd not had that kind of success with any other diet I'd ever done.

How has this journey to date changed your life?

I have nothing to wear!! None of my clothes fit me anymore. But that's a problem I'm happy to have. Seriously though, I feel so much better physically and mentally. I have more energy and am starting to feel proud of my body. And that is something I've never felt before. Something so simple…..I could never sit with my legs crossed, now I love sitting with my legs crossed!

Would you recommend this protocol to a friend and what would you say are the most helpful parts?

I think back to how I almost didn't sign up to do the diet because I was concerned about the cost. Thank God Laura Pedersen (who is wonderful!) convinced me I needed to take care of me. Now I'm a walking advertisement! I tell everyone, look if I can do it, ANYBODY can! I'm super excited because I now have the opportunity to be a coach for Ideal Protein so I can be a part of other people's transformations!!

 

Judy's Story

Judy works in the Reston Office.

She has lost 72 pounds since starting Ideal Protein weight loss program last September. Here's her story:

What has your past experience been with weight loss attempts?

I've tried most diets out there. I'd lose weight, but gained it back and more.

Why did you decide to try Ideal Protein?

Dr. Thomas Mazahery was my true inspiration. He lost "MAD WEIGHT," 45 LBS total with the program, and I wanted to be just like him

What has 'clicked' for you with this diet protocol?

I really wanted to lose weight. I was the heaviest I have ever been. I knew I was big and I thought my eating habits were the same, but they were not. The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Program guided me through what to eat and when to eat. Now I know what foods to stay away from.

How has this journey to date changed your life?

After I had my left total knee replacement done by Dr. Mark Hartley, which was the best decision I've ever made, I was really putting on weight. I didn't like the way I looked or felt so I decided I wanted to lose weight. I huffed and puffed just walking to and from my car in parking lot. Now I'm dancing while doing housework, and taking pictures of myself (something I had stop doing).

Would you recommend this protocol to a friend and what would you say are the most helpful parts?

Yes, I would most definitely recommend Ideal Protein to a friend.

Ideal Protein was life changing for me. It’s good for my heart, my knees and my soul. When you follow the program the weight comes off.

My blood pressure and cholesterol have decreased and I’m now taking half the medicine that I used to take. I am hoping to be medication free very soon.

I want to take a minute to thank my SUPER supporters Melissa, The Reston physicians and staff, my wellness coaches, and my family. I will be forever grateful.
