Customer Testimonials (continued)
"I'm a professional dieter. My doctor put me on my first diet when I was 12. I've done Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, South Beach, Grapefruit. I've been vegan with McDougall, meat eater with Atkins and tried every combination of food including Suzanne Somers' eat the right foods at the right times. Some of these diets were successful as long as you were eating their foods, attending their meetings and you could stomach being hungry all the time. In my lifetime I've probably lost the equivalent in weight of a small class of kindergarten children.
So when Dr. Sam asked me to attend an Ideal Protein introductory seminar, I didn't think another diet was in my stars; after all, I'm middle aged+ and thought I was the best I could ever be. I was wrong.
As of today, I've lost 33 lbs., 2lbs. shy of my goal. But more important than that, I've learned a lot:
The body was designed to work a certain way with the right kinds of fuel
You don't have to be hungry to lose weight
You can eat your own food with supplementary meals
You can lose weight even at middle age+
What has really helped is not only what I learned and applied, but having Dr. Sam and the group as support to keep me going. Of course, I have to keep it off, but this time feels different because I know what I can and cannot eat and WHY. That's the best secret of all.
And the added bonus: I'm so much healthier. My cholesterol is now perfect; my blood sugar level is now perfect; my blood pressure is now perfect and I feel great.
Oprah was right when she said, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."
"After losing 15.9 lbs. in two months and a total of 12 inches, I can honestly say this a diet program I will stick with. As a practicing physician, I have always dreamed of opening a clinic dedicated to the research of the effects of food and supplements have on the human body regarding the cure of various diseases. While I understand the science of digestion, I've always been amazed at the lack of quantifiable scientific evidence surrounding various diet protocols. Nearly 70% of the U.S. is suffering from obesity, and the effects this is having on our economy are enormous. Having said this, I joined the Ideal Protein program with a certain trepidation, but soon happily felt the effects. I now feel better, stronger, less tired and less stressed. That alone will keep me coming back to Dr. Sam's program."
"I'm a full-time Pilates and dance instructor, so when I started Ideal Protein with Dr. Sam, I was strong and toned; I just wanted to have the most perfect body possible for my body type. After all, bodies are my business and I wanted to "walk the talk". Since starting this program, I've lost 22 inches in all the right places. I feel great; I'm told I look great, and I feel like I have a new body. I recommend this program to any of my students because it teaches you how to eat to be both healthy and slender for life."
"The best part of Ideal Protein was not what I lost, but what I gained! Not the 20 lbs. and the sugar addiction that I lost – but the insights into proper nutrition: the importance of breakfast (I now look forward to my large egg &mushroomomlette every morning!), the role of lettuce and salads (brooms for the tummy) and replacing my passion for ice cream, cookies and chardonnay with the healthy Ideal Protein popsicles I now keep at the ready in my freezer. Of course, the best and sweetest addition of all was the support and inspiration of Dr. Sam."
"As an ER MD, I wanted to lose some weight but was concerned about my schedule and how another diet program would work. I've tried many different programs, and none of them worked. Then I saw a good friend of mine, Dr.R., after he lost 30 lbs. in only 2 months. I listened to the introductory seminar which was a complete dissertation on the science of digestion, but I was worried about being hungry and finding the time to work out. Dr. Sam explained that during Phase I working out was discouraged and that hunger wasn't an issue due to the protein content of the foods.
She was right! I never worked out nor did I feel hungry. Duringthefirstweek I lost 6 inches and 9 lbs. She said, "Remember, food can be your medicine and it can be your poison. We've been so conditioned to get satisfaction from taste that we're addicted to good tasting poison." Not anymore. I now refer all my patients to the Ideal Protein program."
"I've been doing the Ideal Protein Weight Loss program with Dr. Sam in spurts for a few years. So, I'd take off some weight, keep it off, come back and take some more off, keep it off, etc. Overall, I've taken off about 60 lbs. in a way that makes sense to me and is sustainable over time.
I really like the program because I maintain lean muscle mass and only lose fat; it's easy and it tastes great. This protocol has taught me how to lose the weight and keep it off for good."
"I never believed I could do it. The best thing Dr. Sam ever said to me is, "You can do anything for one week." That's all it took. I got through the first week and kept going. 14 lbs. was a breeze. I feel so much lighter and have so much more energy. I'm thankful for all Sam's support. She made it easy. I'm so happy to becarbandsugar free."
