I’ve been on this diet twice. First time I lost 18 lbs. and this time to lose 9 COVID lbs. to get back to maintenance. Debby was very supportive and affective in helping me stick to the program. Any coach is only as affective as we allow them to be so try to follow their guidance. It was difficult to watch my husband chow down on carbs and sugary foods but over time I came to realize it’s my responsibility to myself and my health to stay on tract. I liked watching my weight go down and seeing less and less fat rolls and having my clothing look smooth on me. The pandemic has been difficult in all aspects emotionally but this restart program has helped me lose my “COVID” weight gain. One piece of advice I have to share is to read books on dieting such as “Chasing Cupcakes” and refer back to them during your journey. Know that this is a journey and not a race.
I have lost 60 lbs! The plan was so much easier to follow than I expected. One thing that helped the most was the food tasting great. The staff was so supportive. I enjoyed seeing different coaches to hear all the different strategies. I couldn't have been successful without the whole team. I feel so much better with more energy and my life has greatly improved. My weight always overshadowed the good things but now it's not in my way. Pepper's Market was the best idea! There was so much to pick from. My advice is "Don't give up!" You have the road map. Just follow through and you will see results. And the results are worth it!
My fat has disappeared. I no longer look as large sideways as from the front. My ab and butt have shrunk considerably. My visceral fat has gone from 18 to 12. Fat lumps on collarbone and neck, jowls, and 2nd chin, and sides of knees have disappeared. Less fat on front of knees (looked like calves had moved to front!) and back of elbows. I began noticing improvement in 8months. I can button lowest button on blouse now. I can tuck blouse into slacks/shorts now as 'spare tire' is gone. My dresses/nightgowns have 'gotten longer' with fat loss. I can see bathroom scale display without bending over since ab fat is much less. I can lean against bathroom sink without ab 'apron' hanging over edge. I had to buy smaller clothes and bras. My 3 rolls of fat have gone to 1 minimum. My cheekbones now are defined as face got thinner. My feet swell less frequently. I'm able to button sweater vests now instead of letting them hang open. My back 'hip shelf" has disappeared so I don't have to get up from sitting position and pull down t-shirt. Physical abilities have improved vastly. I used to be breathless when bending over large ab in order to tie my tennis shoes (could only do 1 shoe; raise up to breathe, & then do 2nd shoe). I get up quicker from chairs and at chiropractor's table as I have stronger core muscles now from exercises. I can sit & cross my legs. I still have to work on loosening hip joint to bring ankle up to opposite knee. I can step up and down the curb more easily. I can now fasten bra in back instead of front. I'm thrilled that inner thighs by groin don't over lap and 'slap' as I walk. I can now sit on footstool and get up, whereas before, I didn't dare sit that low since I couldn't get up. In garage, the space between car and cabinet; I can now walk front ways instead of squeezing by sideways."
Familiar story, tried pretty much everything, but nothing has really worked very well or at best has been a very transitory success. The Ideal Protein diet has finally got me where I need to be- always wanted to be both weight and body fat wise. It was only in looking at my 'before' picture that I had realized how much weight I had put on (I gave up looking in mirrors a long time ago). Easily the fastest way to shed fat fast (83.9lbs lost in 21 weeks!) without losing muscle mass and have gone from a 46" to 34" pant and 2 XL to medium shirt. This is the lightest I have been in living memory - a real joy to be back running and training properly again and can now do exercises that I have never been able to do before. Huge support from everyone at this center. Everyone has been extremely helpful and motivational, but extra special thanks to my coach Julie. I couldn't have done it without her excellent tutelage and help tailoring to my food tastes and race training schedule, which I know has been rather abnormal. If you want to lose weight and get your life back, this center is the first stop on your journey.
They go above and beyond to help clients be successful in their weight loss journey. From candid recommendations on products to hiring someone to create meals when we're too busy to cook our own. Very knowledgeable about the program and experienced from first-hand experience. I could go on, but if your serious about getting to a healthy weight - this is the place to go for help.
My daughter-in-law kept telling me about people she knew that were on Ideal Protein. She thought I should try it because these people were really losing weight, feeling good and some no longer needed some of their medications. I was skeptical because I have tried every diet out there since I was 35 years old. I would lose weight, quit (thinking I could continue on my own) and then gain all the weight back plus some. I have yoyo'd for years. It finally got to where I could no longer lose weight. Anything I tried didn't work or I lost very little weight. A friend of mine was on Ideal Protein and had lost a lot of weight. I could see how it was working for her. I decided to give it a try. I was amazed when I started losing weight. I couldn't believe it! My coaches have really helped me a lot. They are always friendly, encouraging me and keeping me on track. They have been with me all the way. The videos I received each week were very informative. They helped me think about different situations, explain what was happening to my body as I was losing weight, and told me how the plan would work for me. This was not easy and you have to plan ahead for social events, in fact you need to plan ahead for every meal. But if you follow protocol, you will lose weight. It is so worth the effort! I am now off my medication I was taking for Type 2 Diabetes and the medication I was taking for cholesterol and feel great. I have lost 61 pounds on my way to maintenance. Thanks Ideal Protein!
I lost a total of 20 pounds following the Ideal Protein protocol. It was an easy program to follow. I loved all of the food options available. It's helped that the center carries an abundant of products and the newest options from the headquarters. The staff was great! They were uplifting during my lows and celebratory during my highs. I feel great! I finally have my energy back. I am now comfortable and satisfied in my own skin again! Thank you Ideal Protein for allowing the reflection in the mirror to match the person on the inside!
Ideal Protein diet is the only diet I have been able to stick with. It's perfect because there is no calorie counting! As a former client to a different office- I prefer this center due to the availability to shop in the store without needing an appointment and the high quantity of products providing a wide variety of options to shoppers. I love how my clothes fit, have more energy, and overall feel better about myself. I would recommend this diet to everyone! It's the most effective diet with results that will blow your mind!
I have been on many diets all of my life, including Weight Watchers and Nutrisystem. I have never had such a positive experience as I have had with Ideal Protein. I attribute that to the diet itself and the support I received from the staff at the center. Most diets are great for younger people with a lot to lose. Since I'm 65 and wanted to lose 20 pounds, weight comes off very slowly for me. Weight loss with this diet was consistent (admittedly not as quick as with most people) and the inches came off. There is enough variety with food choices to satisfy most taste buds. I quickly found the foods I enjoyed. For me, this diet is great because it had healthy food choices that included snacks and sweets. It satisfied my cravings and allowed me to stay on it without the desire to cheat. This is the first time ever I have made it to the maintenance phase. The staff is very knowledgeable, supportive, and extremely caring. They are also very realistic about goals and eating in general. There were always lots of smiles to greet me when I went in for weekly appointments.
I lost 26 pounds on Ideal Protein. The staff here was very effective and supportive. They provided tons of resources. I loved the videos! The in house store is incredible and provides a wide variety of product that makes this program even easier. I have more energy, my clothes fit me well, and I have more confidence. My food choices are better and I don't have bouts of sleepiness after eating.
