I am not a naturally thin person. Like most of my family, I've battled with weight issues my entire life. In the past I have lost weight in many different ways, but always struggled with keeping it off. I have bounced back and forth between 190 pounds and 275 pounds several times in my adult life. As a physician, I understood that my body composition was putting me at risk for health problems. I saw many of these health problems in my close family. I was frustrated with my efforts to apply my nutrition knowledge to my lifestyle. Knowing what works, and successfully applying it to a busy lifestyle are two different things. Ideal Protein gave me the daily tools for success. I have since lost the weight, but more importantly, kept it off for several years now. If I see a few pounds creep back on, I don't panic. I simply apply the principles I've learned, and quickly restore my weight and body composition to my ideal.
"I’m proud that I committed to my Amazing Transformation because now I can inspire my patients to take control of their own health, through my own experience."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
I was amazed at how easy it is to follow a simple protocol. The immediate health effects were astonishing. Joint pain disappeared, I slept better than I did in years, and I no longer needed to drink way too much coffee every morning just to get going. I had more energy than I knew what to do with, mentally and physically.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I have the energy to keep up with my 10-year-old daughter. I can rest knowing that I have done what I can to ensure my health and vitality for years to come. I can inspire my patients to begin their own Amazing Transformations, teaching others through my own personal experience. I can finally enjoy going to the beach or the pool, without feeling self-conscious about my weight. I don't feel guilty about enjoying food anymore. Better yet, I actually enjoy healthier choices more than my old unhealthy favorites.
