Ideal Protein Diet: Slim Down Strategies The Diana Stalder Way

The author as a kid.

I was stick thin back in my early years of grade school. Easily dismissed as having a fast metabolism, I never gave a second thought to slices of cheesy and greasy pizza slices or a second or even third helping plate of pasta. I pushed my body—mainly because I thought I’d never get FAT.

As proof, the following photos below were photos of me as a child:


In my teen years up until college, I grabbed a meal whenever I’d remember to cope up with emotional problems. Yes, folks…I was an emotional eater. Hence, I gave my food blog its name, “Security Blanket”.


Being overweight and in my case, diagnosed as obese has a devastating effect on women’s lives. Big is definitely not beautiful. Honestly, I’m not happy with my size although I admit that in a span of more than a decade of being this big—I had no choice but try hard to be comfortable with my body—with my being FAT.

I think I would feel happier, healthier, sexier and more confident if I could only manage to slim down. I hate feeling frumpy. My life would certainly improve and I’d definitely gain back my self-esteem once I lose weight.

Now as I am approaching my mid-thirties, I see that age is not only severely demanding about being in top shape—it also has a memory that seems to remind one about everything you’ve done in the past. And so began a battle of wills. The truth about aging versus three decades of little exercise, a demanding sweet tooth and a resistance to calorie counting.


My first week of taking Ideal Protein diet gave me something to look forward to. I’ve reunited with my love for vegetables again. I began to fully understand what sensible eating meant. I had to. With my personal coach Dina closely monitoring my weight loss, the craving to eat buffet flew out of the window! I am happy that my family is very supportive of my decision to lose weight. And am glad too that I have someone like Coach Dina (who had gone through the same Ideal Protein diet herself to achieve such transformation) to personally inspire me and remind me that I’m doing a good job.

I am slowly, and at first reluctantly, beginning to understand that it is my lifestyle that needed more the change. The Ideal Protein diet is simply something to jumpstart you with and it isn’t the type of crash diet that you’re bound to eat ‘unrealistic food’ for the rest of your life. Ideal Protein diet is a four-phase easy to follow method where one can maintain one’s lean muscle mass, shed unwanted fats and teaching one how to keep those pounds off forever. Once you’ve reached your ideal weight (based on your height), you’re on your way to a healthier and more meaningful life sans the Ideal Protein diet.

Oh, and did I mention that in just a week’s time that I am in the Diana Stalder’s Ideal Protein diet program, I no longer snore as loud as that of a man’s? I used to suffer from sleep apnea due to obesity. My Mom also noticed that my face had looked somewhat smaller because I’ve always been with rounded chubby cheeks similar to a mamon or monay (a kind of bread). 

Here's Ms. Dina dela Paz-Stalder who herself had gone through the Ideal Protein Diet.

Well, yes, I’m still in the middle of the battle against my bulges, but in just a week, I’ve lost eight pounds already. I am very optimistic about this and I’m excited for all the changes in me in the coming more weeks. I firmly believe I am still a work in progress.


I will be updating you more with my Diana Stalder’s Ideal Protein Weight Loss program in the coming weeks here on my blog. Do watch out for that! I'm saving my photos for future blog updates.
