A Doctor’s Story: How Women Can Lose Weight

As an OB-GYN physician treating women of all ages, I often hear my patients say, “It’s so hard to lose this extra weight!”

I understand — I used to carry 70 extra pounds myself. Today, I’m proof that it is possible to lose that weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle, despite going through menopause, taking estrogen, raising four teenagers, and maintaining a very busy medical practice. My experience was so transforming, I started offering the protocol that worked for me to my patients.

Ideal Protein for Weight Loss

I made my lifestyle changes with Ideal Protein, a medically designed protocol for weight loss and weight maintenance. Ideal Protein is based on validated science about how our bodies work and what’s most effective for safe weight loss and stabilization.

A sensible program with life-changing benefits.

In my practice, we’ve seen women lose even just a small amount of weight and be able to get pregnant without fertility treatment. Women of menopausal age have lost weight as well, safely and conveniently. Patients who’ve tried many other “diets” without success lose an average of 2 to 3 pounds a week.

As the weight comes off, I find there is often less need for medications that treat the symptoms of excess pounds. Two conditions that I’ve seen improve with weight loss include type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, polycystic ovary syndrome, infertility, and that frustrating post-menopausal weight gain that averages 17 pounds or more. Even my 78-year-old mother-in-law lost the 50 pounds she’d gained through menopause!

More than 3,000 clinics like mine offer Ideal Protein, which includes:

· A delicious partial meal replacement plan

· One-on-one personalized weight loss coaching

· Online educational tools to maximize your chances of success, now and for the long term

· Medical monitoring of health conditions related to weight gain or loss.

I’m proud to be part of a group of health care providers across North America who are helping patients overcome the disease of our generation — obesity. I’m convinced that Ideal Protein is the answer for my patients, especially for women who want to turn their lives around by achieving a healthier weight.

“I’ve always been a large person. I’d try a diet, lose weight, then gain back more than I had lost," says Joyce Kackmann, a patient and now coach at the Lake Lifestyle Medical Clinic. "It was frustrating. I heard about Ideal Protein from a friend who lost weight and was keeping it off. I looked into the program and really liked that my doctor needed to sign off on my participation. It made me feel like he cared about my well-being. I lost inches and pounds every week, and after just 16 months on the Ideal Protein Protocol, I lost 200 pounds. I also lowered my high blood pressure and pre-diabetic numbers. It was amazing!”

Find long-term weight loss success.

Ideal Protein contains NO magic elixirs, pills or amazing substances that supposedly “melt” fat. It’s based on validated science, it's medically designed, and it includes all the components that, in my opinion, are essential to effective, safe, long-term weight loss and maintenance.
