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.
