Coaching Makes This Weight-Loss Plan Unique

Importer slims down, improves health with Ideal Protein® program.

Rick Correnti plays an essential role in greasing America’s supply chain. For 40 years, he’s worked for a Boston-based company that imports various commodities into the country.

“I’m responsible for bringing in the goods, getting them cleared through customs and delivering them to the appropriate facilities,” describes Rick, 61. “My company works with importers of all kinds, from chemical companies to furniture-makers to producers of household goods.”

While his company is based in Beantown, Rick works remotely from his Florida home. He loves the weather in the Sunshine State but has long been dissatisfied with his weight. And while he has tried several diet programs, none worked for him.

This year, he sought a better way to rid himself of the excess girth.

“I did a Google search and found the diet clinic at Back in Motion, which offers the Ideal Protein® weight loss plan,” Rick recounts. “I read a lot about that program and was interested in trying it. My goal was to lose 20 pounds.”

Back in Motion is a full-service physical therapy and pain treatment practice with locations in Sarasota and Bradenton. The Diet Foods & Weight Loss Clinic, located within Back in Motion, is directed by Timothy Burnell, PT, a certified Ideal Protein coach. Timothy has also specialized in auto injury recovery and whiplash treatment for more than 20 years as a physical therapist.

Under the Ideal Protein program, weight loss is achieved with a low-carbohydrate, adequate-protein, low-fat diet. There are no medications or injections.

“Our primary source of energy is glycogen, or carbohydrates, which is essentially sugar,” Timothy educates. “Our secondary source of energy is fat, and the third source is muscle. Ideal Protein uses specific foods to limit the use of glycogen for energy and instead uses fat.

“Ideal Protein helps limit the amount of sugar and dietary fat people consume while providing a high-quality form of protein that is easily absorbed. Some other weight loss plans merely restrict caloric intake, so the body burns muscle as well as fat. Ideal Protein burns stored fat while preserving lean muscle.”

One-on-One Coaching

“Ideal Protein is working well for me… I lost 25 pounds in five weeks.” – Rick

What really sets Ideal Protein apart from other weight loss plans is the one-on-one coaching and support system. At the Diet Foods & Weight Loss Clinic at Back in Motion, Timothy meets individually with each participant.

“Our dieters keep a journal of everything they eat and drink,” Timothy notes. “Each week, I review that journal with them and look for any problem areas or mistakes in their food choices. The goal is to keep them moving forward with their weight loss.”

Timothy recommends Ideal Protein over other diet plans largely because it is more than just a diet plan. Ideal Protein fosters changes in eating habits that allow people to keep the weight off long term and get healthier.

Once dieters meet their weight loss goals, Timothy sits down with them and develops a customized meal plan to keep the weight off and eliminate “yo-yo” dieting. This customized plan limits hunger and cravings, and keeps the dieters satisfied. A successful dieter is not only someone who loses the weight but also someone who keeps off the weight.

Rick is one of the program’s success stories.

“Not only has Rick lost a significant amount of weight on the Ideal Protein plan, but his cholesterol has been lowered more than 60 points since he started the program,” Timothy reports. “In addition, his blood pressure when he began was 145/100, which is high. Today, it is 122/78, which is in the normal range.”

“Ideal Protein is working well for me,” Rick confirms. “The proof is in the pudding: I lost 25 pounds in five weeks, so I even surpassed my goal.

“I’m very happy with my results. I highly recommend the Ideal Protein program at Back in Motion — with Tim’s coaching. That’s the key.”
