The key difference between Ideal Protein and other programs is that Ideal Protein transformation is permanent, it literally changes your life.
I started gaining weight when I was 10 years old, though it wasn’t much of an issue back then. I would still go out with friends and play in the park, it was all good. As time passed, I kept putting on more and more weight. Then I reached college, and this was that point in my life when I realized my weight was out of control and that I had a serious problem. Being just 20 years old and 5’6”, I weighed 210 lbs. My friends would go on hiking trips but I had to stay home, they would participate in marathons while I looked at them from the roadside, they would play sports while I could only cheer for them. Things were not good, every day was a misery, feeling left out plagued me and my mind raced for solutions making it so I could not sleep.
Furthermore, at my annual physical, my doctor also started saying that I really needed to lose weight. I could develop health issues like diabetes and heart problems. I did not use to eat a lot, I regularly went for morning walks but it was not helping. I joined various weight-loss exercise programs at a gym in my neighborhood. I also did a 6-week weight-loss diet program but it all went in vain. After completing those programs, I lost around 15 to 20 lbs, I thought “this is it” but after one or two months, I ended up back where I started. I had lost all hope and my life was turning into a mess.
Until one day my friend, Rebecca, told me about Ideal Protein and my life changed completely. I was referred to the nearest Ideal Protein clinic, BioIntelligent Wellness, and started my journey right away. And it worked! I went through all 4 phases: first, I achieved weight loss through safe ketogenic diet. Second, I stabilized my weight loss and learned about how foods affects me. Third, I learned how to properly reintroduce carbohydrates and developed a healthier lifestyle. Last but most important I learned to maintain this beautiful lifestyle and to make sure that I stayed in the best shape for the rest of my life. The Ideal Protein weight-loss protocol made the transformation as easy as anything. I received one on one coaching from my coach Cat, had a plan tailor-made specifically for me and there were delicious recipes to make things tasty. All of this gave me a huge boost and powered me towards my goal. The only thing I wish were different back then is I missed out on Ideal Smart, the technology companion to the Ideal Protein protocol. It not only provides online help, but you can take it along with you using a smartphone app. Now, they even have the Ideal Smart band which synchronizes with your phone like a Fitbit and helps to manage things even easier.
The key difference between Ideal Protein and other programs is that Ideal Protein transformation is permanent, it literally changes your life. You develop new habits and new ways which make sure that you stay at the peak of your health. It comes as a result of the two key components: Lifestyle Building and Lifestyle Living. Lifestyle Building is the transformation period. You lose weight, learn about healthy habits and develop those healthy habits. Lifestyle Living is what makes Ideal Protein unique, it’s about making it permanent, it is the maintenance phase. There is so much focus on this phase that a whole 12-month period is designated for this, just to make sure that you maintain your successful weight-loss and it does not blow away like other programs. There is constant ongoing support and advice to help you stay on track. When I completed my final phase, it felt so easy and natural to follow this new lifestyle.
It has been 5 years since I started the Ideal Protein ketogenic weight-loss protocol and now I weigh 165 lbs. I cannot believe that I have lost a whole 45 lbs and have successfully kept it off for so long. The first time I went to BioIntelligent Wellness, my local Ideal Protein clinic was probably the best day of my life. It felt so great when I found that my clothes were getting lose, it felt awesome when my friends invited me to participate rather than just observe, it felt sensational every time I looked in the mirror and saw the new me. Now, I am a member of a nearby hiking club and regularly attend its events, I enjoy sports, stay fit, and I can wear the clothes I love. Apart from the physicality, Ideal Protein has given me a fresh mind as well. I am more confident in the way I speak and interact with people, the sleepless nights are no more there, my life is so full now. I am always looking forward the next day to get up and work to achieve my goals. All I can say is that Ideal Protein has made me into a new person, a person who no longer has any weight issues, and a person who believes in myself.
