Let Food be Your Medicine

A few weeks ago I went to a continuing education seminar for Ideal Protein, and I was blown away even more than I already am by what we do as a group.  We had the opportunity to meet the brains behind the method and catch up with other clinics in the region.  One of the very cool things that they did at the beginning of the course is ask 1 spokesperson from every clinic at the event stand up, introduce their clinic, and share their personal weight loss using the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method.  To say I was surprised would be the wrong description, but I was amazed by the level of success at fighting obesity we witnessed in that room of nearly 200 people.

And it wasn’t just about the patients.  The doctors, coaches, and entire staffs were sharing their personal weight losses of anywhere from 7 pounds to over 100 pounds… and they’re keeping it off.

I see this success everyday in my office, but it reaffirmed to me that the philosophy behind Ideal Protein is one I can stand behind.

In a world where we are plagued by taking a slew of medications for diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol among other things, it’s exciting to know that many times there is another way.  The famous statement by Hippocrates captures the whole essence of Ideal Protein:

Let your food be your medicine and medicine be your food.
