Weight loss. By far, this will be the #1 New Year’s resolution for 2018. According to all metrics, the U.S. population is only getting unhealthier, and a big component of that comes from the growing obesity epidemic. While there are a seemingly endless amount of weight loss strategies available on the market today, they tend to have only one thing in common: they don’t work. Typically, a person never loses the weight they want or they can’t keep it off once they do. When it comes to slipping back into your old jeans, weight maintenance is just as important as weight loss, and that’s exactly what Ideal Protein is designed to help you do. This isn’t a crash diet that will have you back to the same weight just a few months after you’ve lost it; it is a multi-pronged, medically developed method designed to help you lose the weight and keep it off without depriving you of the foods you love. Sound too good to be true? Read on to learn more. (more…)
