My back pain had manipulated my every move since 2000 when I blew it out after 16 years as a parachutist in the military. I was headed for my 3rd spinal surgery at an extremely accelerated rate according to my surgeon because my weight was contributing so significantly to disc failure. I struggled to regulate my activity and diet, yo-yo-ing between doing too much or too little. I've had to have a series of sinus surgeries and hernia repairs, and I grew more and more uncomfortable. My chiropractor here, Dr. John, helped get me pointed to Ideal Protein to finally handle business effectively.
"I'm able to really LIVE how I want. Exercise is back consistently. I can travel, work, and play with my grandkids. Doors I thought were shut have reopened with this program and I am forever grateful. I've been in maintenance for over a year now and am continually learning."
Lifestyle Building - Losing the weight
The side effects apart from the scale dropping have been terrific. I stopped snoring within days of starting the program which was obviously a huge relief for my wife. My quality of sleep has greatly improved. After a short two weeks in, I was moving better and my overall gait had changed because my inflammation had decreased so significantly.
Lifestyle Living - Keeping the weight off
I actually LIKE myself again :) Due to the weight loss I've been able to come off high blood pressure medication and decrease cholesterol meds. I can wear clothes I wore 17yrs ago. I have regained strength, endurance, and confidence I feared was gone forever. My physical therapist for my back is so impressed by how much better I'm doing. My pain has reduced from chronic and life-altering to occasional and minimally restrictive. I previously had debilitating episodes; now if I have some pain, I am able to just stretch and work it out. In getting my weight under control and core strengthened, I went from being unable to sit up without assistance to planking for 9 minutes at a time.
