A Coach With Empathy

One of the reasons why Neda is such a successful weight loss coach is because she struggled with her own weight from the age of 13. She had a history of weight fluctuation, going up and down in size for many years. She understands the frustrations, insecurities, and difficulties of losing weight because she has been down that road. As Neda says, “I have walked in their shoes, and I understand deeply the challenges. But I think this helps build trust. My clients know that I have been there and they feel comfortable opening up to me.”

Every Pound Has a Story

Neda explains that it’s this type of highly personalized, one to one coaching that leads to weight loss success. “Weight loss is so much more than just diet,” Neda muses. “So much of it is emotional, and I can be someone who they can talk to and work through whatever barriers they may be facing. Every pound has a story.”

100 Percent

“I give my clients my personal phone number so that they can text me if they need immediate assistance. If they are at the grocery store and aren’t sure if the product they are buying is good for their diet, they’ll text me a picture of it and I’ll guide them. I give them 100 percent, but I expect 100 percent back!”

Ideal Protein: More Than Just a Diet

Talking to Neda, it is clear that Ideal Protein works because it is more than just a diet. She explains, “people come in feeling vulnerable, and often with health conditions related to weight gain. A big part of my job as their coach is to make them feel comfortable, to listen to their stories and to get to know them. Weight loss is very personal, and you need someone to encourage you and someone you can trust.”

How it Works

When you start the Ideal Protein Weight Loss System, Neda will meet with you for a one-hour appointment in order to ensure that you understand exactly how the system works and to discuss your specific needs, concerns, and goals.

Each week you get to meet with Neda for a follow-up meeting so that she can monitor your progress and your health. Neda explains, “I get to share recipes with my clients and teach them how to prepare and shop for clean and healthy food. I take all their measurements: weight, body-fat percentage, muscle mass, and hydration levels. I encourage them to keep journals of what they are eating and even write down any feelings or struggles, trials and triumphs that they've had that week.”

Burn Fat Not Muscle

The Ideal Protein System is designed to force the body to burn fat, not muscle. Ideal Protein meals are made with isolate and vegetable proteins, free of preservatives and genetically modified ingredients. The meals are low in sugar and carbohydrates, but high in protein; therefore, the body burns fat but not muscle mass. A healthy, safe and sustainable weight loss system!

Pharmasave Kitsilano is pleased to introduce our amazing weight loss coach, Neda Mclaren. Neda has been a level 4 trainer with Ideal Protein for 4 years! She’s worked with over 200 clients who have had success using the Ideal Protein Weight Loss System!

From Client to Coach

Before Neda became a coach, she tried the doctor-derived Ideal Protein system as a client, and the results were incredible! She lost 20 pounds in only 2 months! It was her weight loss success that convinced her to become a coach, as she knew first hand that it worked. “It was important for me to work for a company that I believed in. I didn't’ want to be the face of something that didn’t work,” explained Mclaren.

Road to Success

Neda had tried other weight loss systems in the past, but, as she jokes, “the only thing that got skinnier was my wallet!” Her road to finding the right weight loss system was a windy one, but worth the journey!

The Results

On the wall of Neda’s office are many “before and after” pictures of her clients. Some of her client’s “after” pictures are almost unrecognizable! For Neda, however, the best part of her job is not only the physical results she gets to see in her clients, but the fact that, as she says, “they are happier, healthier and have more confidence!”

Keeping it Off!

Neda acknowledges that the toughest part of weight loss is keeping it off, which is why she feels that it’s important to teach her clients how to eat properly so that even after they go off the program they tend to keep off the weight.
