Start up bagWhile on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol you will find that the cost is equivalent or similar to your regular food costs and in many cases, can even be less expensive. During your first visit, we will do a comprehensive health profile review and analysis, and you will leave that appointment with everything you need to get started on the program. This includes your first week of food, your first month of supplements, a little extra food to curb hunger during the first week, a shaker bottle and a great tote bag to bring back with you each visit for your food. The cost to get started for this appointment is $399.

That answer is different for everyone. During the initial weight loss phase, women can expect to lose 2-3 pounds of fat weekly while men typically lose between 3-5 pounds. This program focuses on fat burning and muscle sparing so results are often FASTER than traditional weight loss programs. Results are predictable and repeatable week after week without plateaus for clients that implement the program 100%. No more frustration! The first phase remains until you have regained your health and reached your initial weight objective. But that doesn’t mean you have to lose your entire goal all at once! It’s really all about setting realistic and measurable goals and following through with ALL the phases. Want this to be your last “diet” ever? Phases 2-4 are just as important as losing the weight in phase 1. Though the initial weight loss phase will end, our journey of wellness NEVER ends. Clients who are committed to keeping their weight off participate in our free Lifestyle Phase 4 program. Ultimately, we want to teach you a new “Weigh4Life” right from the start!
Seminar pictureThe first step is scheduling a complimentary 15 minute chat with one of our experienced coaches to see if our program is right for you. We can do this in person or over the phone! Our coach will  listen to your health goals and can suggest a plan that would be appropriate for you.  We will also include pricing, meal details, and a thorough explanation of our program and expectations.

Once you have made the commitment to yourself and to your coach to begin the journey, we will have you fill out a comprehensive health history. This will be reviewed by your coach as well as a medical professional, if necessary.  We see clients with Type 2 Diabetes, Sleep Apnea, PCOS, high blood pressure and more. Because clients see a rapid improvement in their health, we work closely with your doctor, so they can ensure you are on the proper medications as you lose weight and regain your health. We highly recommend attending one of our FREE Introductory Workshops to prepare for beginning the program. Clients that attend a workshop are given a $50 credit on their initial appointment.  Ready to register for an educational workshop?
