I underwent a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment a few years back. My surgeon pointed out that my cancer could have been exacerbated by being overweight. I didn't take action at that time, but her comment remained in the back of my mind. More recently I was diagnosed with gout which was the final tipping point. A close friend of mine was doing amazing on IP which led me to Colorado Health and Wellness. Improving my health became my priority and I now had the proper motivation and was truly ready to make change.
"It’s given me a whole new lease on life. It’s helped me to finally make the healthy choices I needed that will now stick with me forever. I’m fortunate I went through the Ideal Protein protocol with friends – it allowed us to bounce ideas off each other and kept us motivated. "
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I went in thinking giving up a lot of carbs would be particularly difficult and was pleasantly surprised that was not the case. The protocol was easy to follow, and the IP foods have been great in helping to keep me satiated, combat cravings, and stay on track. My metabolic rate increased to a 'high' score because I've kept all my muscle and my metabolic age reversed by 15yrs!
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I have so much more energy and feel fantastic! I don't get winded as easily when hiking and I can actually take stairs two at a time without having to stop and catch my breath. I'm also enjoying shopping for the first time in a long while-not only greater variety of clothes but also the experience of changing in the dressing room which I avoided before my weight loss. Finally, I just had blood-work redone and my numbers are much improved over where they were a year ago, which shows my health has truly improved from the inside out.
