Success Story

"I’ve been overweight my whole life, I love food, and just got heavier over time. Constantly searching and trying all the diets; only to lose 20 pounds, and then gain 40 pounds. Exercise requires painful moving and sweating, not for me. I would go to bed in fear I wouldn’t wake up due to my excessive weight. I skipped activities to avoid embarrassment, my weight kept me from really living.  Always sluggish, no energy, always depressed, and I never got excited about anything. Over the past 20 years, I also sought medical help, endured many tests, each diagnosis had a different opinion, thyroid, low blood sugar, sleep apnea, etc. During a visit with Doctor Bhushan, I broke down explaining I was soon to be married, I was both anxious and sad about my upcoming nuptials, and I was worried that I would be required to purchase two airline seats to travel. As a happy newlywed, I visited again with Doctor Bhushan to discuss my continuing weight gain, and he asked me to attend his upcoming Benchmark Health Systems “Solutions for Life and Weight Management Seminar”. I was reluctant to try another diet, but was intrigued with Ideal Protein weight loss program and learning how to change my eating habits to lose weight. I started the program in February of 2012, over the last nine months, I have lost 70 lbs.  Jisele, the program administrator assured me I would not feel awful after the third day and that I would not feel hungry. After the third day I began to feel better, I felt sudden energy, and slowly started to feel my spirit come back, I’m a different person, a new me. The Ideal Protein program takes dedication and adherence, and has worker for me. I am again living, smiling, and feeling so much better. I have the energy to get out of my car to shop for myself, and I am more productive at work. Thank you, God, for answering my prayers. Dr. Bhushan, Jisele and the office staff are my cheerleaders. I still have a way to go to reach ideal goal weight, I really do feel GREAT."
