An Entire Family Scores Big on the Ideal Protein Diet
MBT Success Story: Leah Turner
Weight Loss: 40 lbs
Leah Turner never intended to go on a diet. She didn’t even think she needed one the day she walked through the doors at BodyTech Weight Loss and Health Clinic in Rockville, Maryland. She was simply there to show support for her husband, Steve, who needed to lose weight. Years of high-stress as a successful high school basketball coach, late work nights, and eating on the run had finally caught up with him. After sitting through a Tuesday night introduction at BodyTech, the words of owner Larry Kay resonated on Leah causing her to reflect the state of her own health. She decided she needed to lose weight, too, so she joined the Ideal Protein diet along with Steve.
Her first weigh-in revealed a surprising 40 pounds of extra weight. This gave her just the motivation she needed to fully embrace the IP protocol. A high-stress litigation attorney who left the profession to become a health and wellness practitioner, Leah discovered one element of her mind-body care that had not been properly addressed—her own dietary habits.
What started out as a win-win situation for this husband and wife dieting team, soon became a family affair. As they began to drop weight, people started to notice and ask questions about what they were doing, how they could help, and even how they could also join the diet. Soon Leah’s mom and in-laws were all on board and losing weight. BodyTech’s approach to weight loss and diet management has truly transformed this family into a happier, healthier bunch!
Leah’s mom, Lynne, shares a home with the couple and took it upon herself to provide home team support by learning to cook IP friendly meals for the entire family. It is no overstatement to say the whole family benefited from the healthier way of eating. While Leah’s boys weren’t in need of weight loss, they too benefited from the diet by better food choices and greater awareness about proper nutrition.
Now focused on maintaining her slimmer body weight, Leah is committed to the IP way of eating for life. She is a walking testament to the effectiveness of the IP protocol and has graduated on to become a beloved new member of the BodyTech weight loss coaching team.

What have you learned from the weight loss program at BodyTech?

How has your mindset changed on the Ideal Protein protocol?
