The Protocol

Our medically developed weight loss protocol and smarter lifestyle choices education offers dieters what they really want…a structured program that can put an end to constant dieting.

I spent over 15 years being very overweight. I have tried many diets and exercise over the years, and have had many ups and downs. My mom suggested that I should attend an Ideal Protein Information Session. I was very interested and excited when I saw how easy and supportive the Ideal Protein method is. For me it was very important to do this for myself but also to be around for my kids. I was also told that I was pre-diabetic and was concerned about this since diabetes runs in my family.

The Team

Kristen and Mel

We are the owners, pharmacists, and coaches at the centre. October 2015, when we started our journey with Ideal Protein with our beautiful coaches from Samudra Weight Loss Centre at Qualicum Beach, Kristin Bjarnson and Jennifer. With the help of our coaches, we were able to stick to our 9:00am schedule every Saturday. The 25 minute drive to Qualicum Beach and back to Nanaimo before opening our pharmacy at 11:00am was quite a challenge. However, we stick to the protocol 100%, I lost 16 pounds and Mel lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks. The protocol has rewired our brains into eating more vegetables and drinking “TONS” of water. Frequent trips to the bathroom when you are working alone at a pharmacy is my ultimate challenge. It came to a point that one of our patient gave me a bell for Christmas, just in case I do not hear the door chime, just to help me out with the journey I am on…

It was not easy, our Asian Diet has to be modified, I have to break through from the fear of eating too much vegetables, and be awaken with the realization that I will not drown with a gallon of water. Easy to say now, that the journey is worth my time and I deserve every dollar I spent to make myself healthy. Mel’s part? He literally pushed me to make this journey to my optimal weight bearable every single day. =)
