Question New to Ideal Protein...is this diet successful???

I was just wondering has anyone lost 50+ pounds from Ideal Protein and actually kept the weight off? If so how long did it take to lose the weight?

Hi, Kim. The diet is extremely successful as long as you follow the program. That is key. I read somewhere it has a 93-percent success rate as far as keeping it off. I took off 40 lbs in 3 months...over the summer...and don't intend to ever put it back on again. Good luck as you start this exciting journey!

Kim,

This program is awesome. You really need to spend some time reading through the discussions on this forum. Especially check out the forums for "life after phase 1" or anything similar. These folks can prove to you that IP is successful. Good luck and welcome to our forum!

Remember: The success of any diet ultimately depends on the behaviors of the dieter both during and after the program!

Everyone loses weight at a different rate. it also seems that the more you have to lose the faster the weight comes off in the beginning. How well you stay on plan and avoid cheating will also help to determine how fast the weight drops off.
I've managed to drop my first thirty lbs in the first two months and I am really happy with that rate. Some here have lost faster and many have lost it slower but everyone has their own metabolism. All of us want to keep it off and encourage others to do the same. Having a support group is a real blessing when going through all of this!
Welcome and I wish you great success in achieving your goals!

Yes. I reached my 50 pound goal in 16 weeks, then lost another ~6 pounds during Phases 3 and 4 (NOT weight loss phases.) I have been on maintenance since June 5, and I remain within a narrow window around my final weight (i.e. plus or minus 1-2 pounds).

IP delivers as promised, as long as you stay true to the protocol. You will be delighted by the results!
