Carolyn C.
Boone, NC

I was 50 plus pounds overweight when I began the program with a very sedentary lifestyle.  I have been on every “ diet” under the sun through the years. The Ideal protein is the only program that helped me trim inches in problem areas—hips, thighs, tummy, etc.  My energy was off the chart’s and I believe I reached an optimum state of wellness.

My health has significantly improved—blood pressure, cholesterol levels, BMI.  I have been able to successfully return to desired running activity and am in process of training for a marathon next year. I feel like a million bucks!

Nancy R.
Boone, NC

Reason to begin program was due to health concerns. I look and feel so much better. I can walk up steep hills  at high elevation and not get winded. I can run up steps. I can sit comfortably with my legs crossed. I can wear cute clothes again. I can wear riding boots! (first time ever). My blood pressure has dropped especially the diastolic number. My doctor is very pleased with my weight loss.
