Current Weight:159.4 lbs
I was having knee problems and the doctor said that I either needed to lose weight or get a knee replacement. After having recently gone through a double mastectomy I knew I wanted no additional surgery, so, the doctor gave me three places to check out for weight loss. I chose Dr. Biemer because he was closest to me and it was the best decision I have ever made for myself. The Ideal Protein protocol made sense to me and I made a commitment. I was taught the science behind the protocol and it reinforced what I have known my whole life. The difference now was I was at an age where I finally decided to listen. I was also blessed with a fantastic coach that always gave me the hard truth, Kazumi Schoen. I've made this decision a little late in life but still early enough to enjoy what’s left of it and set a good example for my children, grandchildren, and especially my husband. I'm hoping to reinforce good habits to give them all a healthy life filled with good choices.
"My outlook on life is completely different. I don’t focus on problems so much but concentrate on solutions. I think my priorities are in better order. Life should not be focused on food or drink but rather on the people you love and the world around you."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
This protocol made sense. I finally woke up and realized how much false faith I had put into the “feel good with food" attitude.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I now have energy! I now want to get out, live life, and show firsthand that food is a means of survival and not a reward or an escape from stress and problems. There is a big difference between clean and processed food.
