I struggled with weight for most of my adult life and my first pregnancy took it to a whole new level.
Then I tried all the wrong ways to lose it.
Pills... crash diets... 'keto'.
These approaches caused more problems than they solved. Then, my weight shot up even higher with my second daughter.
I was done.
No more deprivation, extreme workouts or 'fat bombs' .
My doctor referred me to a program founded on healthier eating, caring professional support and lifestyle education.
Within a few months, I was in my best shape in years. Physically and emotionally.

I have struggled with my weight my whole life. In high school, I weighed 165 during soccer season and 185 out of season. By the time I finished my freshman year of college, I was at 210. I yo-yo’d thru the years, losing 20 or 30 pounds here and there, then gaining it all back and some more. I topped out at 278 pounds. I found Albina and with the luck of God (I’ll explain that). I am at 186 as of this morning.
At 53 years of age, and 35 years of struggling, I have finally done it!
THANKS TO ALBINA AND IDEAL PROTEIN!
Now, the God part.
In June 2018, my family and I had a wonderful opportunity to travel to Israel and the Holy Land. It was a trip of a lifetime. The religious sites, the people, the culture, the architecture, the ruins, and the history. And I learned about Ideal Protein.
We traveled there with a church from south Texas. As we walked through Galilee, a woman I did not know told me about her pastor, Father Michael. Pointing him out, she said he had lost 150 pounds on a diet. She was so proud of him.
What did I hear? “Patrick, you are fat. You need to lose that much weight too.” She did not say that, but that is what I heard. I had to buy travel pants for the trip. I had been squeezing into 42 inch pants and had to get a 44-inch waist for the journey. It was a bit tight, but I wasn’t getting anything larger. My shirts were XXL and XXXL. Lots of walking, steps, and climbing in and out of buses. I felt my weight. But I was mad at this lady. Who is she to tell me I’m fat?
A few days later we had the opportunity to renew our wedding vows in Cana. The sight of Jesus’s first miracle, where he turned water into wine at a wedding feast. My three teen daughters took pictures of mom and dad. My wife, as usual, was looking good. There I was. In my 44 inch pants, XXXL shirt and looking not so good.
The rest of our days in the Holy Land were spent stewing a bit. And thinking about Father Micheal and what he had done. Did he really lose 150 pounds? If so, how? But I could never do that. I could not get the courage up to ask him. And even if I did, I’d fail at it anyway.
After sitting on the tarmac for 3 hours, stuffed in a coach seat, our flight out of Tel Aviv was canceled. We spent an extra night in Israel. I finally got the courage. Father Micheal shared his Ideal Protein journey. His enthusiasm encouraged me. I went back to my hotel room and downloaded as much information as I could on Ideal Protein to read on the plane. We arrived back in the US on June 18, 2018. The next day I called Albina. I started the diet on June 29th.
I completed phase 1 in January 2019 at 188 pounds. In just under 7 months I lost 90 pounds. I am wearing 34 inch pants and large shirts.
With Albina’s help it was easy. I am 3 months into phase 4 and have not gained any weight back. Albina tells me phase 4 is the tough part. I have to re-learn how to eat, so the weight does not go back on. I still see her two times a month. She keeps me accountable. She is 8 years (correct?) into her journey and has not gained her weight back. Father Micheal is 2 years into his journey and holding steady. And I will too!
One last thing. I am a physician. I know about obesity personally and with my patients. I know the biochemistry and how a body handles carbohydrates and stores fat. I understand why I could not lose weight. It was what I was eating. Albina knows all this science too. She was the missing link. She was why I succeeded.
