Ideal Protein FoodOur Chirothin weight loss program has been tried-and-true from the moment we introduced it to our clinic.

If you’ve been following the blog, you know David’s story. Over six weeks, David banished thirty pounds that had taken more than fifteen years to accumulate.

Then there’s Mary Ellen, our most recent Chirothin success. Over Chirothin’s six week regimen, Mary Ellen lost an astounding twenty pounds. “I’ve lost a bunch of inches and I met my goal on weight loss,” Mary Ellen expounded when we spoke to her at the completion of her program. “I’m eating healthier than I ever have in my life.”

Check out Mary Ellen’s testimonial here.

At Evolution Body Transformation, we take our patients, and the goals that each of them are pursuing, seriously. We’re all about the new and the innovative, but there’s no advantage to fixing a system that just isn’t broken if it won’t bring the absolute best for our patients. You can imagine what a big decision it was to bring a whole new weight loss program into the mix.

But Ideal Protein made the cut.

With more than twenty years under its belt, the Ideal Protein is a seasoned program. It was developed by Dr. Tran Tien Chanh, MD PhD, a specialist in research on nutrition, obesity, and its related issues. Dr. Tran was dedicated to designing a program that delivered consistent, scientifically proven results. He wanted a program that was easy to follow, and possible to carry out over the long term.

The crux is this: lose weight, retain muscle mass. For many people, losing weight means eating better, and eating better means eating a “balanced” diet. Well here’s the thing: when we’re eating a truly balanced diet, we’re not gaining weight, and we’re not losing it. The problem is that, in any weight loss scenario, you’ve got to create an imbalance in your diet in order to drop extra pounds.

Now, we all know that not all foods were created equal in the world of weight loss. Take an apple, for instance. It’s packed with nutrients, but it might very well keep that extra tummy tire exactly where it’s been for the last five years. Eat a barrel of cucumbers, though, and you could get a slimmer waistline out of the deal. Why? Well the apple is a carbohydrate. When your body needs energy, it’ll draw on your body’s recently consumed simple and complex carbs first, and it’ll ignore your body’s store of fat.

So we diet by taking away the fuels that our body burns most readily. We pull the apple and its friends out of the mix. Instead, we eat more cucumbers. We don’t give our bodies any new carbohydrates to break down for energy.

So then what happens?

Our bodies go after what we already have: fat and, unfortunately, muscle. That’s where Ideal Protein steps in. It works in four doctor-supervised phases that stabilize pancreas and blood sugar levels. At the same time that your body’s burning fat, the Ideal Protein is helping your body preserve muscle. Why is that important? Well, your muscle mass is your body’s natural fat and calorie-burning engine. The more muscle you lose, the more fat your body stores.

“My favorite thing about Ideal Protein is that I don’t have to think about what I’m having for breakfast or what I’m having for lunch; it’s already planned out for me,” says Angela, our skin care expert here at Evolution Body Transformation. She’s been on the Ideal Protein for two weeks now. Splitting her time between Evolution and Cost Cutters, Angela has got her hands full. A girl on the go, she loves that the Ideal Protein is so accessible. “With this, you already have the food, so it’s a lot less preparation for the week.”

As it turns out, the Ideal Protein meshes well with a busy lifestyle; Angela has already started seeing results: “I’ve lost eight and a half pounds in two weeks and five and a half inches…I’ve lasted longer on this one than the Chirothin because it has the food that I can just grab and go with.”

But the easy, grab-and-go set-up isn’t all that the Ideal Protein offers: “There’s a lot of support online, too,” she points out. “There’s a lot of Facebook pages…You can ask questions about recipes. If you’re having a bad day there’s always someone there who can motivate you if you can’t get in to see the doctor.”

Angela recommends a page called ‘Ideal Protein Supporters Phase 1 Group’ on Facebook.

Angela’s optimistic about the months ahead. She says she can see herself meeting and maintaining her goal weight on the diet. But for now she’s excited to try some of the mixing and matching tricks she’s learned from fellow Ideal Protein eaters: “I want to make oven-baked pickles, and you can make oven-baked zucchini chips! That’s what I’m most looking forward to.”

Good luck, Angela, and keep spreading the good news!

Let’s be honest: the holidays do a number on our dieting plans. It can feel literally impossible to keep those lost pounds off as we enter a time of year when avoiding all of your favorite fatty and carb- filled foods pretty much turns you into a Scrooge. Fortunately for your spirits but unfortunately for your waistline, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more are coming over the river and through the woods faster than you think. Do you have what it takes to enjoy this holiday season without compromising your weight loss goals?

…If you answered “no,” we understand—you aren’t alone. It’s why Evolution Body Transformation is kicking off this holiday season by arming you with everything you need to come out unscathed. Here’s a list of five skinny tips that will warm your heart and preserve your waistline to get you through the rest of the year looking fabulous!

  1. Find a friend in My Fitness Pal.

Follow the link above to access everything the My Fitness Pal Blog has to offer. Designed to make being healthy the easiest part of your day, it’s packed with recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner that are between 200 and 400 calories. The folks at My Fitness Pal are all about food logging, too, which we think is a great way to stay aware of what you’re eating, and how it’s affecting your body. With this handy little tool, you can log all of the recipes you use from My Fitness Pal in the click of a button. Pretty cool, huh?

  1. Bring a holiday favorite straight to your own morning mug.

Who needs a $5 cup of coffee packed with your diet’s worst nightmares when you can have your favorite seasonal beverage the healthy way? This year the gals at Flavilicious Fitness are bringing you your very own recipe for the purest Pumpkin Spice Latte there is to offer. So toss that paper cup to the reindeer, grab some pumpkin puree, and get to it!

  1. Don’t get bogged down by staying “low-fat.”

We’ve been programmed to see fats in anything and immediately dive for the nearest bathtub-sized salad. But it’s important to remember that your body does need fats. Most of us, instead, are used to being encouraged to consume lots of whole grains. In fact, most of our “healthy” diet is supposed to consist of them. But consider this: wheat and grains quickly turn to sugar in our bodies. The resulting high blood sugar can lead to poor insulin sensitivity…a key reason why our bodies pack on the belly fat! So at this year’s holiday parties, try taking a step away from the whole grain dinner rolls and embrace that nutcracker! Nuts—like walnuts, almonds, and pecans—contain fats that’ll help regulate your body’s hormonal balance to get fat-burning hormones doing exactly what they’re meant to. Some other healthy fats include olive oil, fish, avocado, and even coconut oil, found in the pumpkin spice latte recipe above!

  1. Remember: fruit is your friend.

Never be afraid to whip out a classic fruit salad at your next holiday party. Many fruits aren’t just good for you, they’re perfect for reducing body fat. Take watermelon, for example. It’s got an 88% water and 12% fiber content that’ll help boost your liver and kidney function and make you feel full and satisfied after eating less food. You might also sprinkle some pomegranate into the mix. Pomegranate has all the fiber, Vitamin C, and water of watermelon, but its shape makes it good for nibbling—and slower eating, ensuring that your body’s getting more nutrition, but fewer calories out of the deal. Berries are also a great addition. They’re packed with B-Vitamins and antioxidants that help keep your blood sugar in check.

  1. Don’t take the YOU out of your holiday diet.

This may be our last tip, but it’s certainly not our least. With any diet, enjoying food and life this time of year can be a challenge. In many ways, the warmth and nostalgia of the holidays are brought to us in the form of our favorite foods. As personal trainer and entrepreneur Neghar Fonooni reminds us, there are plenty of foods and practices out there that are considered “healthy.” There are foods packed with vitamins and workouts that target all of your trouble spots. But when they bring you dread instead of joy, they just aren’t healthy for you. So eat those foods that will enrich your body and your spirit. If you don’t like coconut oil, remember…you don’t have to!

In a previous article, Liz’ Surprising Experience with Laser-Like Lipo, Part 1, we had a heart-to-heart talk with Liz about her roller-coaster experience with weight and her amazing results with Laser-Like Lipo at Evolution Body Transformation, a medical spa in Madison.

At 23, Liz was 75 pounds overweight and engaged to be married. One day she had an epiphany about her weight. She made a commitment to lose those 75 pounds before her wedding day, and she did it! She was a beautiful, slender bride thanks to healthy eating and exercise.

Life-Changing Complications

Life was exciting for the newlyweds, especially when Liz learned she was pregnant. She was confident she could handle pregnancy without gaining too much weight. Unfortunately, she was soon facing a complication which quickly undermined all her hard work. Read more about it in Part 1 of Liz’ story.

By the time she came to Evolution Body Transformation in early 2014, Liz had lost 60 of those original 75 pounds for the second time. She was looking good and feeling great. Despite losing 60 pounds, her thighs and buttocks stubbornly held on to more fat than the rest of her body.

She hoped that Evolution’s Laser-Like Lipo could solve her problem.

Laser-Like Lipo with the Vevazz

FDA-approved, the Vevazz Laser-Like Lipo Wrap is a painless, noninvasive treatment for achieving permanent inch loss and cellulite reduction in stubborn areas like buttocks, hips and thighs. Liz was skeptical, but she did it anyway. She signed up for five laser-like lipo sessions. “I was hoping they would work, and I was genuinely amazed at how well they worked!”

By the time Liz finished her fifth Vevazz treatment, she had lost a total of 10-1/2 inches in her buttocks and thighs—inches that don’t come back just because you drink a glass of water. It was truly lasting inch loss.

How Does the Laser-Like Lipo Feel?

First sessions: Dr. Stacy Shropshire, D.C., director of Evolution Body Transformation, began by measuring Liz at three precise points on her body. Then she placed 8 rectangular laser-like lipo paddles on her hips and thighs and secured them with Velcro straps. The entire treatment took 30 minutes. For the first seven minutes, Liz laid on a comfortable table.

“I laid there for several minutes,” Liz said. “I didn’t feel anything, no burning, no sensation whatsoever. I started to think it was a joke.”

After the seven-minute laser treatment, Liz stood on a platform that vibrated her entire body for 10 minutes. “It kind of tickled and made me laugh,” Liz said.

Liz learned that the light from the laser-like lipo padddles pass through your skin painlessly and stimulate fat cells beneath the skin to open. The vibration phase of the treatment activates the lymphatic system and assists the body to remove toxins stored in the fat cells.

After concluding the treatment, Dr. Shropshire told Liz to get 30 minutes of exercise that same day to help maximize the release of toxins. Even though Liz was still skeptical, she did the exercise. “Surprisingly, I had a ton of energy after the laser-like lipo treatment.”

After the third sessions, Liz began experiencing serious inch loss in her thighs. Her pants were fitting noticeably differently. She started telling her friends and family about her results.

By the end of the fifth laser-like, Liz was a true believer, sporting new slimmer thighs and buttocks with smoother skin and dramatically reduced cellulite.

A Successful Journey for Liz!

At her highest weight, Liz wore a 20W pant size. “Now I’m just a regular size 14!” she recently bragged. Vevazz Laser-Like Lipo was the final piece in her successful weight-loss/fitness journey.

Today Liz is slender, fit and active. She runs regularly and last time we talked, she was training for a grueling 5K race called the Warrior Dash. She’s also a certified Beach Body Coach.

“It’s funny,” Liz recalled, “I’ve spent seven years trying to get my body back into shape. I was so skeptical about the laser-like lipo. I wondered why more doctors weren’t recommending this approach. I wondered how a light beam could work,” she continued. “But I stuck to the treatment and it did work. It wasn’t a temporary fix. I was genuinely surprised at my awesome results!”

Liz offered a word of advice to women and men considering Vevazz Laser-Like Lipo.

“When the staff at Evolution Body Transformation tells you to drink more water or to do 30 minutes of exercise the same day as the wrap, do exactly what they tell you because your results will be the absolute best possible.”

Evolution Body Transformation, an innovative medical spa in Madison, WI, provides safe, non-invasive body shaping treatments and healthy weight loss systems for men and women. We are the exclusive provider of the revolutionary Chiro-Thin Weight Loss Program in Madison.

If you’ve already enjoyed Debra’s Personal Triumph with Chiro-Thin® Weight Loss Program, Part 1, you know that Debra came to Evolution Body Transformation, a medical spa in Madison, WI, to lose weight quickly and safely earlier this year.

Debra had a private consultation with Evolution’s Dr. Stacy Shropshire, D.C. She learned that the Chiro-Thin Weight Loss Program is a six-week doctor-managed program that helps patients lose ½ to 1 pound per day safely. Thanks to a combination of eating regular foods, taking daily natural supplements and a proprietary weight-loss supplement, patients start losing weight immediately. Debra learned that over 25,000 patients nationwide have lost weight on Chiro-Thin, and Dr. Shropshire was one of them.

Results from 1st Chiro-Thin Cycle

Debra lost 18.5 pounds during the six-week program and summed up her experience perfectly, “I’m over the moon, and I’m so thrilled.”
As we promised our readers, we followed Debra through her second six-week cycle of Chiro-Thin and are happy to report Debra is even more thrilled with her results:
** Debra lost 12 more pounds for a total of 30-1/2 pounds in just three months. **

“When I finished the entire first six-week cycle, I went to my closet and took out the size 8s and 10s that had been hanging there for years,” Debra said. “I slipped into my favorite khaki colored capris—and they fit better than they had the last time I wore them. I almost cried, I was so thrilled!”

Now that Debra has lost 30-1/2 pounds, she can wear all her favorite clothes she couldn’t bear to get rid of after she gained weight. “I’m going to a wedding and I plan to wear my sexy ankle-high Egyptian sandals with a beautiful black sheath dress I haven’t been able to wear in years,” Debra exclaimed. “I could have chosen any of four or five dresses that fit me perfectly again. My dungarees and swimwear all look great now.”

Why Has Debra Been So Successful?

In addition to losing more weight, Debra had another good reason for doing Chiro-Thin® a second time. “I wanted to establish a better foundation for my new healthy eating habits.” Behavior modification experts will be the first to tell you that you need at least 21 days to establish a new habit. Since weight loss can be a slippery slope for many well intentioned people, Debra realized she needed the added support of Dr. Shropshire and Chiro-Thin® for 90 days.

What Debra Loves Most about Chiro-Thin®

Debra liked the fact that she didn’t have to eat pre-packaged meals like other weight-loss programs have. She could eat delicious meats, vegetables and fruits at home or at restaurants. She was surprised that she felt so good. “I was never hungry and always had good energy,” Debra said, “and I slept great, too.”

What Debra Appreciates Most

The Chiro-Thin® program includes a weekly private consultation with Dr. Shropshire. That appealed to Debra because she felt like she needed the support and personal attention in order to achieve her goals. “Dr. Shropshire and her entire staff at Evolution Body Transformation were always so helpful and upbeat,” Debra said. Their advice and encouragement showed her she was not alone in her weight-loss journey.

How Debra Rewards her Success

Every time she lost five pounds, she rewarded herself with M’Lis Body Contour wraps, a popular treatment for losing inches and reducing cellulite in stubborn areas also offered by Evolution Body Transformation. “I’ve done four M’Lis Body Contour Wraps and one Thermojet Sauna Therapy,” Debra said.

Reactions from Debra’s Family

During her second Chiro-Thin cycle, Debra’s family was even more supportive. Her young daughter told her, “Mom, you look so good!” One evening, her husband lovingly put his arms around her and said, “Oh, I almost forgot, this is my skinny wife Debra!”

New Activities for Debra

Over 30 pounds lighter, Debra is more active now. “I go swimming and bicycling. I play tennis with my daughter. I can walk more because I have greater stamina. I feel like I’ve jumped back and picked up my life from about six years ago—the years I frittered away due to my eating habits, lack of stamina and the embarrassment of never looking good in my clothes. Thanks to my determination and the Chiro-Thin® Weight Loss Program at Evolution Body Transformation, I’ve reversed my aging!”

Debra is a very busy woman. She and her husband have a lovely daughter and a very successful business in Madison, Wisconsin. Responsibilities tug at Debra all day long.

Although she’d been overweight for many years, Debra finally had her “OMG! Moment” in front of an unforgiving mirror in Long Beach, California in 2013. “I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize myself,” Debra said. “I suddenly became painfully aware of all the weight I’d gained.”

“There I was in beautiful Long Beach, and I felt like I was spending half my time trying to find a cover-up to wear. The experience solidified my desire to lose weight, and that became my one and only New Year’s resolution for 2014.”

For Debra, the problem wasn’t just how she looked, it was how she felt. “My quality-of-life list had gotten very long due to all the related health, emotional and lifestyle problems that accompany being overweight. I really needed to realign my quality of life.”

Finding the Right Weight Loss Method

Debra’s primary doctor recommended exercise and diet. Debra admitted, “My efforts were futile without having some kind of support.”

Then she responded to an advertisement about a supervised weight loss program with a revolutionary twist from Evolution Body Transformation, a Madison medical spa. She had a private consultation with Dr. Stacy Shropshire, D.C., P.Sc.D.,  and was impressed with her and her programs.

Debra learned that the Chiro-Thin Weight Loss Program is a six-week doctor managed program that helps patients lose 1⁄2 to 1 pound per day safely. Thanks to a combination of eating regular foods, taking daily natural supplements and a proprietary weight-loss supplement, patients start losing weight immediately. Debra also learned that over 25,000 patients nationwide have lost weight on Chiro-Thin, and Dr. Shropshire was one of them.

As a matter of fact, Dr. Shropshire was the first patient in Madison to go on the Chiro-Thin program. “I had to experience Chiro-Thin myself before I was comfortable  offering it to my patients.”

And what an experience it was! Dr. Shropshire lost 70 pounds at a rate of 1⁄2 pound a day, was never hungry and always had good energy.

So How Much Weight Did Debra Lose?

She lost 18.5 pounds during the six-week program. Debra summed up her experience perfectly:  “I’m over the moon, I’m so thrilled.”

Real Food. Real Support. Real Results.

“Chiro-Thin program is like no other weight loss program on the market,” says Dr. Shropshire.  “Our patients are getting the results they have dreamed about without having to endure an uncomfortable regime.”
