What’s the difference between in-person and virtual coaching?
All new dieters receive an initial consultation whether it be in-person or Facetime/video conference. If able, we prefer dieters to come to the office at least for the initial consultation because then you will get to meet your personal coach, support staff and be able to see and taste some of the Ideal Protein meals. In-person dieters come to our office weekly to meet with their personal coach for weigh-in, measuring, review of their food journal and receive motivational support to continue dieting. In-person dieters also have the opportunity to select individuals and ready-to-serve meals. Virtual dieters self measure and are required to use the IdealSmart Platform in conjunction with the scale and activity tracker. Meals are recorded on the APP. Your coach can view your daily weigh-in and review your diet right from her screen. Virtual dieters get the same high quality care as an in-person dieter but with their weekly coaching sessions through Facetime, phone, video conference or text. Meals are ordered by the box for the month and are shipped directly to your door.
In-person or virtual you will get the same results! Your personal coach is available to you 7 days a week through texting from 5:30 am-10:00 pm. Connect with your coach when you need motivation or when you are in a situation and you are not sure what to eat to continue losing the weight..

The Weight Loss Method
The Ideal Protein Diet
Weight Loss Phase : Phase 1
The Weight Loss Phase was designed to maximize fat loss through nutritional ketosis, a safe and natural metabolic state in which the body’s primary fuel source is coming from ketone bodies – energy molecules produced by “burning fat”.
Throughout the Weight Loss Phase, lean body mass (muscle) is preserved through the intake of Ideal Protein protein-based partial meal replacements. Depending on one’s starting weight, clients can expect to consume 3-5 meal replacements daily, in addition to 4-6 ounces of a whole protein source, such as chicken, fish or beef. Essential daily nutrients such as fiber, water and micronutrients are provided through the intake of low-glycemic vegetables (4 cups per day), micronutrients replacements (Multi Vitamin, Potassium, Omega-3 and Cal-Mag) and 64 ounces of water.
Typical results vary. Lose up to 6-8 pounds during the first 2 weeks and up to 2 pounds per week thereafter when the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol is followed properly. Clients remain in the Weight Loss Phase until they reach their weight loss goal or objective.
Stabilization Phase: Phase 2
The Stabilization Phase was designed to help defend the body’s NEW weight against it’s former weight.
Following weight loss, the body fights to regain lost weight by increasing hunger and appetite, reducing satiety and lowering energy expenditure.
During this Phase dieters begin to eliminate Ideal Protein Meal Replacements and transition back to whole foods. During this Phase coaches determine the client’s daily macro targets of protein, carbohydrates and fat into their existing food record, creating sample meals for the week ahead.
The reintroduction of carbohydrates is a crucial part of the Stabilization Phase. Weekly “tweaks” are critical to the success of weight management.
Maintenance Phase: Phase 3
Once weight loss and hunger are stabilized and manageable, clients enter our 12 month, 17-visit Weight Maintenance Phase.
During this Phase, net carbs will continue to be increased based on activity level.
Weight loss is created in the kitchen while changing the shape and tone of your muscles is in the gym. Muscle is the engine that burns fat! Clients are encouraged to establish a consistent gym routine to help maintain their new weight and to establish a new healthy relationship with their body/health and food.
