Dr. Noey's Weight Loss Journey

An Open Letter to Anyone Struggling to Lose Weight...

Last week, a new patient actually said to me, "Well, you've never had a weight problem, so you wouldn't understand!"  "Ha!" I said. "That is so funny, because I've actually struggled to lose weight for the last 12 years!" 

When I showed him the above pictures, he couldn't believe that earlier this year (Jan. 13, 2015), I was struggling to button an X-Large blouse and Size 14/16 pants. The truth is, Ideal Protein was the last resort for me.  Before IP, I had really tried "everything" to lose weight.  Like most people, I tried juice fasting, herbal cleansing, colonics, low calorie/ low fat diets, exercise, Garcinia Cambogia and other questionable herbs and tonics, but nothing really made a difference.  In fact, it seemed the more things I tried, the fatter I became.  Frustrated and uncomfortable, I simply ran out of healthy ideas for myself and my patients to drop excess pounds.  

So when I read the science behind Ideal Protein, I knew it should work, scientifically, but I remained skeptical.  It just sounded too good to be true. When I started in January, I decided to follow the program to the letter, hoping to just see a few pounds shed in a few months. Well, I dropped 30 lbs in the first 9 weeks!  To top it off, I felt energetic, never hungry and the food was actually good.  The protocol is strict, but when I reached my goal of fitting into Size 8 pants in just 13 weeks, it was so worth it!  

Believe me, I know it sounds too good to be true.  And If I hadn't done it myself, I wouldn't believe it was possible to lose 48 lbs in 91 days, without removing a body part.  But, I did it.   Now, I am coaching, educating and seeing my patients reach their weight loss goals, as well.  It is so exciting to see their transformations.  And I am truly honored to be a part of their health journey.

So, yes, I laugh now when people, see me in my fitted Size 8's and think I don't know the struggle of being overweight. I laugh, because I know the struggle all too well. Now, I really love sharing my weight loss story and even showing my terrible "before/ after pictures". I just want others to be inspired to make a healthy change.  So, yes, I am passionate about Ideal Protein.  Why? Simply because, it really worked for me.
