I enrolled in their ideal Protein program over two months ago, not only the
staff is friendly and supportive but the environment is professional and
I have still to try the massages but as far as health support this has been
a life changer for me!
Ideal Protein is a diet that works! I experienced this diet 5 years ago and
was successful but I had 2 babies since then. After having my 3rd child,
reaching age 40 and postpartum weight, I was determined to lose the weight
My IP coach Irene is especially supportive. The diet is strict and you have
to stick through it if you really want to see results.
I've reached my goal of losing 45 lbs (in 5 months), and I feel empowered
and exited about the program and my success. I'm happy to answer any PM
messages for those who are considering the program. ***
I'm so glad I have come across the Ideal Protein diet, and grateful to yelp
reviewers for that! I was on the diet first for 3 months at a different
office, before I transferred to Awender Chiropractics and lost 30 lbs in 3
months. I'm now in the second stage of the diet. I've lost about 10 lbs
since I started a month ago, and I'm close to the finishing line!! I've been
more than happy with the support I get from AC's coach Irene! She is
friendly, knowledgeable, and supportive!
So what brought me to try IP is that I've been successful in the past by
losing weight on Weight Watchers, but it took almost two years to lose 30
lbs. And with stresses of daily life, I've gained all that weight back. I
could not bring myself to do the counting again, and felt like I needed a
structured and well thought through program, which I can follow, that does
not involve appetite suppressants, and provides adequate support. Ideal
Protein has been all that.
The program is well organized. It is based on research and is simply smart.
It puts emphasis on eating high quality proteins, lots of veggies, drinking
lots of water, and drastically reducing carbs. You'd have to eat some of the
IP foods, and some of your own (mostly veggies and proteins). At first, I
thought I'd have to suffer without fruit or a bit of a sweet snack, but I
have never felt so good and not craving any of these things. Even though the
IP foods provide some satisfaction for those of us with sweet tooth: they
offer drinks and bars which are delicious and I'll be eating them even after
I'm done with the program. The sweet foods are sweetened with sugar
alternatives. Originally, I felt not so sure about the foods from the powder
(you'd need to dilute them with water for a meal, shake or a soup), but they
are delicious and very filling. There is enough variety in food so you can
sustain the diet for many months.
I'm a vegetarian, and the counselors told me I would be losing a bit slower
than meat eaters, but I found myself steadily losing 2-3 pounds a week. The
program is doable although it does require determination and consistent
effort, but if you plan your meals, have snacks ready and incorporate
veggies, it gives good energy and no hunger at all!
The main things that helped me were sticking with the protocol, eating
frequently, watching the Ideal Protein video clips for support and checking
in with my coach. I'm happy about this program, it was a big investment but
it was all worth it for the results so great, and for the sense of
empowerment it gave.
