Increase Your Overall Well Being by Learning Smarter, Sustainable Lifestyle Choices

Dieting Shouldn’t go on Forever

Ideal Protein is a medically developed weight loss method that targets fat loss while supporting lean body mass including muscles, bones and other tissues. Over 20 years of evolution have gone into the 4 phase Ideal Protein Protocol:

Phase 1: With the assistance of your weight loss coach (you receive one-on-one weekly coaching), you will follow phase 1 until you have reached 100% of your weight loss goal.
Phase 2: The amount of Ideal Protein foods is reduced to 2 per day. You will only be on phase 2 for a maximum of 2 weeks.
Phase 3: Weight loss stabilization. You will re-introduce moderate amounts of healthy fats and carbohydrates to your diet for 14 days (in the morning only).
Phase 4: You will begin applying the smarter eating education taught by your personal weight loss coach. This knowledge will assist you in making smarter lifestyle choices after dieting.

Why 4 phases? Why not stop after weight loss? Anyone can lose weight…learning how you can maintain a stable weight should be your ultimate goal. To achieve your weight loss goals and maintain the results, a weight loss program must empower dieters with the knowledge to develop balanced eating habits and smarter, sustainable lifestyle choices. This is the Ideal Protein difference.

Our medically developed dieting protocol can help you achieve your weight loss goals and teach you how to maintain a balanced weight after dieting. Click here to find out more.

Heather Pleines AfterTestimonials

“This is the only weight loss effort that has worked for me. It has also been life-changing in that I lost the extra pounds, but during the process I visited my doctor for a medication adjustment and upon her exam and follow-up tests it was discovered that I had a serious medical condition.

In that respect, I credit Ideal Protein with potentially saving my life!” ~ Barb
