I, like many others have tried dieting before with little or no success. My story begins in June 2012, when I went to my doctor for my annual visit. After going over my labs and Blood Presure results, my physician told me "Karen, if you don't do something about your weight, you are gonna have to undergo bariatric surgery!" I left her office disgusted and disappointed in myself, but not for long. I immediately called my lifelong friend Bridget' who, as always calms me down. She said not to worry and told me about a program that is fairly new in the USA. It is called Ideal Protein! I searched on the internet and learned quite a bit about weight loss following the Ideal Protein plan. In my search, I found a local clinic Hannan Wellness, located in Metairie, LA where Dr. Debbie Hannan leads her team of exceptional staff. After attending a free seminar in at Hannan Wellness, it only took me a few minutes to confirm this was the one diet that will change me and will be the very last diet I will ever need to go on! On July 9th, myself, along with my spouse and older sister all signed up for a consultation vist and began our journey on Ideal Protein. This plan is and has been very adaptable and easy to follow. My consultation included a packet of information for the diet that was easy to understand. The staff at Hannan Wellness has and continues to educate me as I progress through the 4 phases of the plan. They are very helpful and remain an inspiration to me. After 6 months on the program, I've lost 70 lbs, my spouse has lost 62 lbs and is no longer a diabetic nor does he take insulin! I have included a before and current photo to show my progress so far. I have 45 additional lbs to loose and look forward to my continued journey on Ideal Protein.
