GHISLAINE PAINCHAUD - Clinic owner
Ideal protein has changed my life, not only as my present career but most importantly, my personal life. I was the queen of yo yo dieting accompanied with the gift of emotional eating, very low self- esteem, and low self confidence. Food was my crutch for EVERY feeling. I celebrated a good day with food, sorted through anger and frustration with food, drowned my sorrows with food. Food was my most loyal friend, there for me always.......Unfortunately food was also my greatest enemy. I never learnt to take control of my emotions, my shortcomings until I learnt and lived the Ideal Protein way of life. This was the golden key I had been searching for, which I had worked so hard to achieve time and time again.
As I researched Ideal Protein and did the program I knew I wanted to be a part of this not only because of the results but because of the science behind it. We not only learn how to lose the weight and maintain but the why's and how’s our bodies gain it in the first place. This knowledge is the key to success for everyone. I know there are others out there who have struggled, are still struggling and looking for the same answers.I am dedicated to serve people and help them the best I can.
There is nothing more gratifying than having clients come in and thank you for changing their lives. They are excited with their new found energy, self confidence, radiant skin and hair, the list goes on and on. These expressions of gratitude continuously reinforces my decision in this career change. I have always been passionate about proper nutrition and being a clinic owner helps me help others, JUST FOR THE HEALTH OF IT...........
I am a 29 yr old mother of 4 boys. I have never been overweight but after my last baby, I kept the extra pounds on. This was very stressful for me, I didn‘t know how to deal with it physically and emotionally. I Hated the way my body looked and I felt VERY FAT! My self-esteem dropped, I was depressed, frustrated and at a loss of what to do. Many of my friends were telling me that I needed to exercise to lose the weight. I DESPISE EXERCISE!!!!
At this time, Ghislaine Painchaud (my mother)was changing her career and starting an Ideal Protein clinic. She went to great lengths to explain it to me, I attended her workshops and joined the program. (I have to admit I was reluctant and did this for my mom at this point) She coached me as a regular client. I had to go for my weekly weigh-ins, bring my journal(or she’d make me go get it)and I had to be accountable.
She helped me on my journey with encouragement, knowledge and celebrations of even the smallest accomplishments. From that wonderful day that I got on board with Get Back 2 Basics Ideal protein clinic, I have lost those ugly 15 extra lbs and kept them off to this day. I feel fantastic, I have the required energy to keep up with my active family and my self - confidence is back.BEST OF ALL.......They DISCOURAGE exercise in the weight loss phases!!!! BONUS!!!
I am still using the vitamins and the delicious snacks for all of my family to enjoy. Thank-you Get Back 2 Basics (mom) and Ideal Protein not only for helping me lose the weight but MOSTLY for the education I acquired about nutrition which helps me make good healthy food choices for my whole family and instill good eating habits for our children.
I am now a staff member at Get Back 2 Basics as the bookkeeper. I love working here not only because bookkeeping is my passion but also because I get more and more educated on nutrition and am able to share my experience with other dieters, especially young moms. We’re a great team with the common goal of getting people their health back and giving them a new lease on life.............
