Ideal Protein

Karen Palmer

All my life I've been yo-yo dieting, I'd lose 40, gain 50, lose 20, gain 30, etc. Going on Ideal Protein was absolutely the best thing I could have ever done. I had horrible knees and bad heartburn and after one week of being on Ideal Protein, I was pain and heartburn free. I never want to feel like I did before! I lost 55lbs in six months. Ideal Protein was a true gift, I have three grandkids and now I can survive the weekend with them!

My journey with Ideal Protein has been incredible. I have spent my entire adult life yo-yo dieting, having tried every program invented. Finally, I found the perfect one for me and my lifestyle.

I have been on the program for a year now. The flexibility the coaches have given me has kept me coming back.

The one-on-one relationship with my coach is so rewarding; guiding me through both the successes and the rough patches. This is the crucial key to success. Another great thing is that the coaches have been on IP themselves, and understand where you are coming from.

The meals are even easy to prepare. It is a perfect fit for everyone.

At the moment, I am down almost 60 pounds and looking at achieving my goal soon.

For many years I fought the battle of the bulge, was grossly over weight and subscribed to several weight loss programs. I become disenchanted and lost my focus and discipline.  The result was that I became heavier than when I started. 

In February of 2015, I started Ideal protein at Yurek Pharmacy and with good coaching, I was able to shed 142 lbs in 2 years.

Over the last several months, due to a lack discipline, I gained 20 lbs; but I was not abandoned by my coach and I am on my back to goal.

In December 2016, I was finally ready to take care of myself.  Wendy set me up with my coach Chris Magoon, as we both have Type II Diabetes.

As of Oct 2017, I have lost 94.6 lbs; that’s more than 3 lbs per week!  I have tons more energy and can do a lot more than I used to.

My insulin usage is way down (used to use over 200 units in a day and currently only 14 units in a day) and my blood pressure meds have been reduced.

I am so very thankful for Yurek Pharmacy and Ideal Protein and the fact that they taught me a new way of eating that I can follow for life.

I encourage anyone who, like me, had tried all of the other "diets" out there but always gained back the weight to try this. It’s your turn to change your life and to "never look back".

When compared to the previous week, this past week was actually pretty good. There wasn’t any big get together like a wedding or Thanksgiving! These events created large challenges for us in the first week.

Another week on Ideal Protein has come and gone. I feel like we are starting to get into more of a groove. We have pretty much memorized what we can and cannot eat so making dinners has gotten a lot easier. One of my new favourite meals is beef and broccoli on a bed of cauliflower rice.
