Ideal U Protein Diet Albany, NY
I just wanted to thank each of you for all of your help, guidance and support for the past couple of weeks. I honestly am feeling wonderful. Although I miss my pizza, ice cream and pasta I haven't been this weight in YEARS and I am really pleased with the results this far. People are proud of me and I am proud of myself.

I am a new mom and I actually feel like I am a better mom for doing this and sticking with it. I'm excited for my journey to continue and I feel I owe you each a big thank you.

Each Wednesday I look forward to seeing my coach and getting new tips. They are so kind and supportive and I really appreciate all of their help!

See you next Wednesday hopefully smaller than I am today!

The Ideal U works! For the past 15 years I have watched my weight steadily rise due to work and family related issues. I am a stress and emotional eater. After the birth of my son, my weight climbed to up to my heaviest, 217 pounds. I kept telling myself I would address my weight issue, but I would never see it through. But, I had suddenly reached my breaking point with this weight and I knew I had to do something. The Ideal U has been so supportive and encouraging. They helped me set goals and helped me see it all the way through. The weekly weigh-ins helped keep me accountable for sticking to the program and attaining my weight loss goals. I started in July of 2013 and a year later I am 5 pounds away from reaching my goal weight after losing over 60 pounds. The transformation not only physically but mentally has been such an amazing feeling. The best part is that I can now comfortably fit into a size 10 and hearing all the compliments about the hard work I have put in to reach my goal. It’s an experience I will never forget and it’s the only true way to learn how to lose weight!

If your looking to change your life, yourself and your image this is the place to start.

Many of us have had many years of issues including using food for comfort and therefore have put on the pounds.

This is the place to start taking off the weight making yourself happy and being the best you can be.

You ask is this just another diet? The answer is no. This is a lifestyle change. This program is restricting at first, with the caloric intake, but offers many healthy and delicious options for our tastes. I have been on the program for a little over a year and am down over 35 lbs. I have had a slower loss then others due to my own personal situations. I have only seen limited progress a few weeks during this time period.

I have seen myself go down 4 dress sizes, have more energy and feel better about who I am both personally and seen in a better professional life. I have a great coach in Emily who even if I don’t see a tremendous weight loss she constantly brainstorms and keeps me motivated to do more .

I do highly recommend this program and have to many of my patients. They see my success and they now want the same. Any lifestyle choice is difficult at first, but is so worth making the effort at the end.

You are the most important person and that is something that we all need to remind ourselves.

Take the first step for a new you.

I have been on many diets. The Ideal U gave me two things that no other diet ever did.

1. Accountability – not just being weighed each week, but being measured was a huge motivator for me. I could see instant changes in my body and the proof that the hard work was paying off.

2. Education – The support given by the The Ideal U staff is priceless. It was the first time I have learned what foods to eat and how they react to my body.

This has been the only diet that has truly changed my lifestyle and my relationship with food. I have never felt healthier and stronger both physically and mentally.

I tell everyone about you who asks me about my weight loss.

At the end of 2008 I weighed over 300 pounds. I had experimented with several other diets over the years to try and lose weight to no avail. I had a Chiropractic appointment; upon arrival, I noticed a television in the lobby with a video running explaining a weight loss program called Ideal Protein. He introduced me to Gretchen and the rest is life-changing history! I informed her that two things would make me fail on this diet; I could not go to bed hungry and I needed to see some kind of progress every week. She assured me that if I followed the protocol exactly as it was designed, this would not occur. I started the diet December 2008. I lost twelve pounds in the first week and ten pounds my second. Over a nineteen-week period I lost 96 pounds and lost 16 inches off my waist! It has been almost a year since I completed the protocol and I am still at my target weight.

During the course of the diet I recovered from acid reflux and my asthma is now completely under control. I went for a physical after I completed the protocol and my physician was amazed how much my health had improved from the previous year.

The method was very easy to follow. I was amazed at how excellent the food selection was and how good it tasted. The support I received from Gretchen was outstanding. Every week when I would go for my weigh-ins she would always acknowledge my accomplishments and was always able to answer all my questions.

In closing, I would like to say that if you want to lose weight, Ideal Protein is the Weight Loss Method!… The support you receive from Gretchen is extraordinary! Thank you Gretchen and thank you Ideal Protein!

The Ideal U is the best way to change your diet for the better and lose weight easily and quickly. First, the eating plan is simple to follow and reinforces good lifetime habits. Second, Ideal allowed me (an older post-menopausal woman) to finally lose weight like I did in my younger days – it was faster than any other plan I have tried. Finally – and this is most important – my Ideal team is incredible. Not only are they knowledgeable but also experienced and supportive. I have lots of past experience with plans that use one-on-one counseling but, hands down, Ideal’s counselors are the most professional and helpful to my needs. I lost 40+pounds, my health has been positively impacted, and I have learned how to manage my lifestyle and eating.

My experience with The Ideal Weigh program has been amazing! I have tried a lot of other programs, but failed. I couldn’t even lose weight eating a healthy diet with four to five days of exercise a week. This program is by far the easiest lifestyle change I have ever made. I contribute my success to the system and coaching of the personnel at The Ideal Weigh. This is the first program that I have tried that I did not hit a plateau and actually reached y goal and it only took seven months. I thank God for this program.

I started the Ideal Protein diet while I was in Florida last winter (as a matter of fact my first appointment was on "Fat Tuesday".) I followed the diet...and did everything I was supposed to do (except from the very beginning I cheated and put half/half in my morning coffee) and lost over 30 lbs in less than three months. The weight just began to fall off...and I am happy that it is still off. I actually have allowed myself a 10 lb. leeway so that I didn't get anxious when I stepped on the scale and gained a few lbs...but I have never needed that 10 lb leeway. I did come to your store on Fuller Road to buy the product when I returned from Florida. Gradually I transitioned into each stage and within no time I am eating regular food...and no weight gain. I recommend your diet...but people just really do not listen to me. Was I just lucky that I found a diet that worked for me? I mean, I tried everything over a 10 to 12 year period...trying to lose that awful menopause weight that just hung on, no matter what. I'd lose a few pounds and then gain it back. But not with Ideal Protein. It works.. And really pretty effortless.

I hope that you are able to reach people in the Capital District. You have a program that works.

I would like to thank everyone at The Ideal U for all of their help in achieving my weight loss goal. I was doubtful when I first began but with dedication and perseverance, I quickly saw the results and saw the pounds begin to melt away. My goal was to lose at least 30 pounds and I achieved that within 3 months. Most importantly, I have been able to maintain my goal weight for approximately one year. The ideal protein diet taught me how to eat correctly, incorporating more protein into my diet, balancing it out with low carbs and lots of vegetables. I will always be grateful for the experience and I truly believe I will be able to maintain my weight for life.

Thank you again, I am so grateful!
