Just like other people, my objective for going on Ideal Protein was to lose weight. I chose Ideal Protein because other weight loss programs do not accept people who have Type 1 diabetes. I would have had to lie and tell them that I had Type 2 diabetes; and I didn’t want to do that. After speaking with Diane, one of the pharmacists at Yurek, she said I could join I.P. and they would monitor me. I signed up right after Easter, last April. I have lost 43 lbs.” Now that it is Five months later, I feel like my old self again, before I was a diabetic. I have more energy; I don’t have lows like I used to; and I sleep better. Not only that, I am only taking 1/3 of the insulin that I used to and my husband is happier because I’m back to being my old self. I found that the coaches were very helpful; they kept me on track and gave me a lot of encouragement. In the end, Ideal Protein not only helped me lose weight, it helped me gain a whole new lifestyle.
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".
