Our Story and How We Got Started

There are no secrets here. There is no magic. I’m not any more special than anyone reading this right now. I’m Teresa. I’ve struggled with my weight for as long as I can remember. I’ve never been the “skinny little girl” and I was always put in the back row for school pictures. Athletic throughout school, I thought I could spin myself thin. I was wrong. What really pushed me over the edge? My third pregnancy. By the time of my daughter’s second birthday, I was still carrying around 50lbs. of “baby weight.” Not only that, but I lacked energy, suffered stomach problems and generally didn’t feel good.Countless diets. Countless attempts to transform myself left me frustrated and still 50lbs. heavier than I should have been. Finally, after seeing a friend’s incredible 70lb. transformation, and three additional months of research, I called her to get started on Ideal Protein.

In three months’ time I lost 50lbs.* I learned how to use nutrition to treat the whole body and found the perfect complement to my chiropractic training. Our Ideal Protein practice has grown by referral and believe it or not, our best cases are not just those who have lost 100+lbs. They are also the people who’ve lost 30lbs.* and are no longer dependent on diabetes medication. It’s our clients with PCOS who are able to get pregnant without medical intervention, because they are balanced and healthy. It’s people who have changed their lives, not just lost weight. I’m human, not perfect. I still struggle sometimes, but now I have the tools to maintain success. I know how to keep my blood sugar at a healthy level and my cravings are gone. Join me and the hundreds of people who have collectively lost over 100,000 lbs. Join our success and get ready to change your life with Ideal Protein.
