The slimming Ideal Protein Method from Ideal Weight Loss invigorates bodies and melts unwanted mass with nutritious foods and dedicated coaching and support. The carbohydrate-corralling method transforms figures by restricting the intake of simple and complex carbs such as sugar, glycogen, and raw couch cushion. Filling the candy-grain void, a meal plan of tasty entrees and snacks—including vegetable chili, omelets, and cran-granola bars—pleases clients’ palates and fuels body furnaces with protein and amino acids. The deliciously varied diet of 29 Ideal Protein meals and a supply of multivitamins and cal-mag supplements trains soul sacks to tap into stored fat reserves and body coal for energy. Over the course of the program, women have lost 3–4 pounds per week, and men have lost 4–7, resulting in boosted energy, decreased cravings, and easier-to-carry shadows.
After spending more than 20 years training civilians and designing workouts for the military, Ira Wenze opened his own 4,000-square-foot fitness center to bring the rapid benefits of boot camp to locals. Registered as an elite trainer through the International Sports Sciences Association, as well as a fitness therapist and performance-nutrition specialist, Wenze designs intense group workouts that offer far more support than exercising next to balloon animals. Fellow certified trainers include D-Bo, a specialist in boxing and mixed martial arts, and Brian Hannah, a former fitness instructor for the Navy. Alongside ever-changing workouts that incorporate weights, medicine balls, kettlebells, and TRX suspension equipment, supportive instructors deliver sound nutritional advice that emphasizes health and energy over dieting. Coaches demonstrate their zeal for progress by taking regular fitness assessments that check in on individual progress, draft new goals, and quiz participants on the metallic properties of free weights.

Patterson and his team at Patterson Plastic Surgery take the time to build a relationship with their patients, ensuring expectations and goals are set before any treatments are performed. Dr. Patterson then draws on his years of experience to perform surgical procedures, from breast augmentations and tummy tucks to face and body lifts.
