High Cholesterol?

Having high cholesterol poses many health risks. When you have high cholesterol, you can develop fatty deposits in your blood vessels. This limits blood flow and increases your risk of heart attack and stroke. Chances are if you know you have high cholesterol, you may be on a medication for it. We will work closely with your doctor while you are on the protocol so they can monitor your cholesterol levels as you lose weight. We have seen many patients reduce or completely come off of their cholesterol medication. Let’s get started!


A lot of our patients come to us complaining of pain – which makes sense! They have extra weight pressing down on their joints, making it harder to move, or they are eating an inflammatory diet. Did you know just 10 lbs. of weight lost relieves 40 lbs. of pressure off of your joints? Oftentimes we get patients referred to our program from orthopaedic surgeons. They usually want patients to lose weight before surgery as to not put any extra pressure on their new joints and help speed healing! We want to help you live a pain-free life. Let’s get started!

No Energy?

You didn’t sleep well last night. Getting out of bed is a chore. Work drags on for hours because you’re drained. We get it! There are many side effects to being overweight that take a toll on the energy your body produces to get you through the day such as lack of energy and poor sleep quality. You can help your body produce more energy by simply improving your diet! We want you to feel like your best, healthiest self. We can help you achieve that! Let’s get started.

Referred by Your Doctor?

Don’t just take our word for it….

A 3-month Tulane University study published in the journal of Obesity Science and Practice comparing Ideal Protein to a standard low-carb, low-fat dietary program found that Ideal Protein resulted in “greater weight loss and reduction in several heart disease risk factors.”  This 2021 study further demonstrates the effectiveness of the Ideal Protein weight loss protocol.

Ideal Protein FAQs

How does the Ideal Protein protocol work?

The three phases of the Ideal Protein Protocol are designed to help you set, achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. During the Weight Loss Phase of the Protocol, we limit carbohydrate intake to encourage the body to turn to its fat stores for energy. By eating Ideal Protein foods, the Protocol helps to sustain muscle mass while teaching you how to develop smarter eating habits and lifestyle choices, to help maintain your weight after weight loss is achieved.

How much weight can I lose?

Typical results vary up to 6 and 8 pounds lost during the first two weeks and up to 2 pounds per week thereafter when the Ideal Protein® Weight Loss Method is followed properly.  You should consult your physician or other health care professional before starting this or any other diet program to determine if it is right for your needs.

What is the cost of Ideal Protein?

the Ideal Protein Protocol cost on average about $16 a day, which includes the cost of the foods and the supplements. We encourage you to think of the cost of the Protocol as part of your grocery bill. Redirecting average food expenses to different, healthier options often results in the Protocol being neutral, or even cheaper in cost.

Can I be on the Protocol if I am a vegetarian or vegan?

Vegetarians can follow the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol and can consume eggs, fish or tofu during their evening meal for their whole protein. As an alternative, vegetarians can have 2 Ideal Protein foods for dinner in replacement of their whole protein. Ensure you review the ingredient list on all boxes before purchasing them. Strict vegans, who do not consume any animal proteins and animal by-products, such as dairy products, honey and so on, do not qualify to follow the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol due to the many dietary restrictions.

How is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol different from other protein diets on the market?

The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol addresses weight issues at their source; reducing carbohydrates and fats while ensuring adequate daily protein intake. In other words, the goal is to lose fat, not muscle. While on the Protocol, through personalized coaching, you’re also provided with healthier lifestyle education so that you are empowered to sustain your weight loss results over your life course.
