SuzzaneSuzanne Schick has been an RN since 1986 and currently works for Peoples Health Network during the day and Ideal NOLA evenings and weekends. She has her own weight loss story, after having her last daughter in 2005 she weighed 320 lbs and couldn’t believe I had let myself get to that point and after trying every diets and even hypnosis she went under the knife and had Gastric Sleeve surgery.

This allowed her to lose 50 lbs but she reached a plateau due to metabolic syndrome. That is when a friend of Suzanne recommended Ideal Protein and IP changed her life. She has lost a total of 60 lbs on Ideal Protein and continues to thrive on the program. Her spirit and energy make her an excellent coach. She can’t wait to help clients reach their weight loss potential with Ideal Protein.*
