A wellness program to last a lifetime

Learning how to maintain a stable weight after dieting should be the ultimate goal

Education and guidance by a wellness coach along your journey – this is the Ideal Protein difference.

More and more we are faced with media images of how to live happier and healthier lives, extolling the benefits of healthy body, healthy mind. We’ve often heard our doctors suggest cutting down on the carbohydrates and introducing some exercise into our week. But how does one actually take control over their health after years spent juggling children, jobs and the traffic of life?

Find help to reach and maintain a healthy weight

Many individuals are at risk for health problems related to high blood pressure and cholesterol, stroke and heart disease. Some are already taking medications, often multiple prescriptions, to manage these conditions. This constellation of factors has caused many pharmacists to take action and offer medically sound weight loss solutions to their communities.

Ideal Protein, a scientifically validated method for safe, rapid weight loss is helping to address the obesity epidemic rampant throughout the Western world. Supported by pharmacists across the country, the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol (IPWLP) is helping patients move towards an ideal weight by tackling the root cause of weight gain – the overproduction of insulin. This is achieved by limiting consumption of sugars in the form of fats and carbohydrates, while maintaining protein intake to preserve muscle mass.

Education and positive lifestyle changes are key

“As trusted and easily accessible healthcare professionals, pharmacists have an opportunity to make a measurable impact on the health of the communities they serve,” said Dr. Thomas Barus, Pharm.D., RPh., Director of Pharmacy Services at Ideal Protein. “The Ideal Protein Weight Loss Protocol is all about helping people regain their health and vitality.

Maintaining a stable weight after dieting often requires changes to your lifestyle habits. This is why Ideal Protein strongly emphasizes education and understanding, learning how to eat “smarter” or risk regaining your lost weight. When you begin the program you will be assigned a personal weight loss coach who will assist you through each of the four phases of the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method. In phases 1 & 2, your coach will help you set your weight loss goals and support you on that journey. In phases 3 & 4, your coach will shift focus to weight stabilization and post-diet living, teaching you weight maintenance habits that may assist you in keeping the excess pounds off after dieting.

You will learn:

  • how your body fat is burned,
  • the relationship between insulin and weight gain,
  • which foods are best suited for healthy weight management,
  • when, why and in what combination to eat carbohydrates, fats and proteins,
  • and much more.

Through the weekly meetings clients learn how to achieve their desired weight and maintain the weight loss. This starts with honest conversations between patients and their healthcare providers about the serious health consequences of obesity.
