“I have been with Lourdes since 2007. I lost 50 pounds on my own and still had another 50 to go. I was working out very hard and found it difficult to keep up the regimen. When Lourdes first started Ideal Protein I decided to attend an Information Night. It sounded like a great fit for me and hearing a doctor speak about Ideal Protein gave me the ‘bug’ to help others. Before I started the Ideal Protein protocol, a position for a Lourdes Ideal Protein Supervisor became available. I thought it would be an amazing job where I could help people daily with getting their lives back. I wasn’t sure I was what they were looking for, but applied anyway. I have been the supervisor of the program since 2011 and reached my weight loss goal. I truly believe in this program and am grateful every day that I get to go to work with a fantastic group of people. I believe we are all here to encourage, motivate, inspire and educate each of our dieters. I love my job and am blessed to be a part of this team.”

“I started on Ideal Protein and became a coach in July of 2013. I lost an amazing 60 lbs. I feel better, I look better and I am healthier. Having successfully completed all phases of the Ideal Protein program myself, I am confident that I can help you achieve your goal as well.”

“I started on Ideal Protein in August of 2011. I had struggled with weight issues the majority of my life. I had never done a diet program in the past, so I was very skeptical to even go to an Information Night. A co-worker of mine was on Ideal Protein and told me how successful the program was. I finally decided to attend the meeting and even then was not convinced of going, but I still went. From that night, my life changed forever!! Best decision I made for my health. What I learned at the Info night was eye-opening and made me realize my bad eating habits were affecting my life. What I really liked about the program was that I didn’t have to take any “diet pills” to lose the weight. It was actually healthy food and I was learning portion control, timing, and healthy choices. As I lost the weight, my coach Emma, was ecstatic with my results. When an opportunity came up, I was offered to apply for the coaches’ position. I did and was hired as a part time coach in October of 2012. I am now a full-time coach. My job gives me great satisfaction to help others get healthy as I was helped. I have lost a total of 116lbs on Ideal Protein and am still going. I am forever grateful for this program because I know it has saved me from many health issues that were foreseen in my future.”

“I started the Ideal Protein protocol in August of 2013. I had hit my highest weight at 259lbs. I was tired of being tired and depressed, which I know was a result of me being overweight and having terrible eating habits. I attended an info night and decided to give it a try and within 7 ½ months I lost 90lbs. Once I got all that processed food out of my system, I had more energy than I knew what to do with and felt more self-confident. I was feeling happy for the first time in my life! When I went in for my yearly doctor’s visit, he was so shocked and amazed at my success, that he took me off my medications and gave me a clean bill of health. I even got a job out it. I hinted to my coach that it would be a joy to help others with their weight loss journey as she did for me. She looked up at me and smiled and told me that a position would be opening up soon. I applied for the position a week later and got the exciting phone call asking if I would join the team. I truly believe this is a great program and highly recommend it to anyone who is seriously ready to lose weight and keep it off for good. You have nothing to lose…besides losing weight.”
Traci Ellig – Weight Management Coach

“I’m the newest coach to Lourdes Ideal Protein, joining in 2016. In the beginning of 2013, I lost 25 pounds and was completely sold on the program. Then, a few months later, I had some horrible health problems. Needless to say, my priorities shifted as I fought through my treatment. When I finished, I had gained all that I lost and felt terrible, mentally and physically. That was when I decided to make a job change. I hope to empower people to make positive health changes in their lives. Many don’t realized the cost of eating junk, perceived as heathy food. That was the reason for many illnesses. I am grateful for this program. It has brought me back to greater health and helps me guide others through their own struggles.”

Two Factors to Lose Weight
1. WAIST SIZE
Measure your waist with a tape measure. The tape should fit snugly but not press into your skin. For most men, a healthy waist is under 40 inches; and for women, under 35 inches.
Measuring your waist can tell you how much fat you have stored around your belly. People who are “apple-shaped” (store fat around their belly) are more likely to develop weight-related diseased than people who are “pear-shaped” (store fat around their hips). Weight related diseases include: type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and high blood pressure.
2. BODY MASS INDEX (BMI)
To calculate your BMI, simply divide your weight in pounds by your height in inches. Check your number against the chart below.
BMI of 18.5 or lower = Underweight – You may want to talk to your doctor to find out if your weight is a symptom of a medical problem. A registered dietitian can help you learn about healthy eating.
BMI of 18.5-24.9 = Normal – You are in the recommended weight range for your height. Your health may still be at risk if you are not getting regular physical activity and practicing healthy eating.
BMI of 25-29.9 = Overweight – This may or may not be unhealthy. Talk to your doctor about your waist size or other health problems that may get better if you lose weight.
BMI of 30 or above = Obese – You probably need to lose weight. With Ideal Protein® it is not impossible to change your eating habits and activity level. Start today, get healthy and stay healthy.
