There are a myriad of reasons to commit to weight loss this year--and a bunch of
serious (and silly) reasons to lose weight with the team at Ideal Health Center but instead of extolling the virtues of our medically-designed, fat-burning, muscle-sparing program that really works...I'll share some of what our dieters have to say.
Top 10 Reasons to Lose It @ IHC, According to the Experts
10. "I wish I knew about this program 20 years ago."
I hear this frequently from men and women who have finally achieved a level of weight loss success that had eluded them for years. A couple decades ago, Ideal Protein was only happening in France now it's available in more than 3,000 healthcare offices in the United States.
9. "I haven't had this much energy since I was in my thirties."
Leave the high-priced anti-aging creams on the shelf. Losing body fat while learning to live and eat for health is the best way to turn back the clock. Many of our dieters have earned their 50, 60 or 70 years and want to enjoy them!
8. "My doctor is impressed with my weight loss and will be adjusting my medications."
Talk to your primary care physician about this one. Could weight loss lead to prescription medication reduction or elimination? For many struggling with obesity-related ailments, blood sugar issues and high cholesterol, the answer is a resounding "Yes!"
7. "It's not easy, but its not hard either."
Our diet is strict and requires a total restructuring of your relationship with
food...and drink. Yet despite its defined parameters it's surprisingly
enjoyable, easy to follow and due to Ideal Protein's evolving menu choices, provides a great deal of flexibility. Not to mention you get skinnier every week.
6. "My mother says I'm getting too skinny!"
Be forewarned: mothers, co-workers, best friends (and in my case a grandmother) will think you are becoming horribly thin and lovingly chide you for becoming "too skinny." Perception is one thing, data is another. Be assured your coach will be monitoring your body fat at weekly weigh-ins.
5."Shopping for smaller clothes is actually getting annoying."
It's fun for the first couple of sizes but buying clothes for your shrinking frame will (and I realize this sounds unbelievable) become irritating and costly. Get comfortable with thrift stores--both donating and purchasing.
4. "My husband can't keep his hands off me."
Who doesn't want to be desired by their spouse? I believe this is a combination of your new look and the double-dose of confidence that comes with it.
3. "I'm wearing my daughter's jeans."
Hopefully she's as thrilled as you!
2. "I love how I look naked."
(This is my personal favorite.)
1. "I am saving my life."
The best reason of all. Your life is infinitely valuable and its quality, to a large extent, rests in your hands. Are you stewarding your treasure well?
I've given you ten reasons to make Ideal Protein at Ideal Health Center a part of your life this year. You only need one.
