Read Martine’s inspiring story:
Since turning 14, I have had to keep a close eye on what I ate so as to not gain weight. I maintained my weight in my twenties and thirties mainly through very restrictive eating which always seemed to end in my weight yo-yoing up and down 10 to 15 lbs. In my late thirties I had two children and with each pregnancy gained significant amounts of weight but was able to lose it again by starving myself. In my early forties, a medication ended up putting significant weight on me. The combination of this and early menopause made it impossible for me to lose any weight at all no matter what I did. As a result my weight ballooned up to 200 lbs. For the next 12 years I tried every diet on the market with limited and temporary success, yet the weight remained.
In 2011 my Internist told me about the Ideal Protein Protocol at an annual physical. I was able to lose nearly 70 lbs. in one year! Ever since then, I have been able to keep the weight off very easily because unlike other “diets,” I was actually taught the science of how the body stores fat and how to keep this from happening – all while still being able to eat the foods that give me the most pleasure.
Because of how profoundly Ideal Protein changed my life, I decided to change my career. I opened Ideal Solution Weight Loss in May of 2013 and became its director and head weight loss coach. Helping others achieve health and success by getting lean has become my life’s passion. I am living my dream helping others through the Ideal Protein program and by being an Ideal Protein coach.
