Ideal Protein could mean ideal weight loss results


The start of the new year usually brings with it new resolutions.

Is one of yours to shed a few pounds in a healthy way?

The Ideal Protein weight loss program could help, said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.

The four-phase weight loss diet helps stabilize the pancreas and blood sugar levels while burning fat and maintaining muscle and other lean tissue.

“It works because you’re eating low carbs and high protein,” Malinowski said.

Other benefits? Improved energy, appetite control and reduced cravings.

A consultation with an Eterna Med Spa & Laser Vein Center doctor helps determine if clients are candidates for the high protein, low-carb diet.

“If they determine you are they go through the program with you,” Malinowski said. “You get a weeks worth of food with your consultation. Each week you meet with the coach to weigh in and talk about how the program is going and purchase your food for the week. It's kind of like a support/therapy session.”

The diet plan incorporates five different sources of protein.

“There is a huge variety of choices of food,” Malinowski said. “We also provide different recipes for clients to make.”

On average, women lose weight at the rate of three to four pounds per week, and men four to seven pounds per week.

“It really teaches you about making healthy choices and you lose weight at a healthy rate,” Malinowski said. “What could be more ideal than that?”

Eterna Med Spa professionals enjoy helping clients realize successful weight loss outcomes.

“We are here for them to achieve their goal,” Malinowski said. “We are so happy to see our clients happy with their weight loss.”
