Weight Loss ConsultantMartena Crippen is a weight loss consultant at Ideal Change helping others to achieve the weight-loss success she too has achieved.

Here is her story:

Since turning 14 I have had to keep a close eye on what I ate so as to not gain weight. I maintained my weight in my twenties and thirties mainly through very restrictive eating which always seemed to end in my weight yo-yoing up and down 10 to 15 lbs. In my late thirties I had two children and with each pregnancy gained significant amounts of weight but was able to lose it again by starving myself. In my early forties a medication ended up putting significant weight on me. The combination of this and early menopause made it impossible for me to lose any weight at all no matter what I did. As a result my weight ballooned up to 220 lbs. For the next 12 years I tried every diet on the market with limited and temporary success yet the weight remained.

Three years ago my doctor at an annual physical told me about the Ideal Protein Protocol. I was able to lose nearly 80 lbs. in one year and have been able to keep it off because unlike other “diets” I was actually taught the science of how the body stores fat and how to keep this from happening while still being able to eat the foods that give me the most pleasure.

Because of how profoundly Ideal Protein changed my life, I decided to change my career and become a weight loss consultant. I want to help others achieve health and success that I did.
