Our programs are based on the latest cutting-edge innovations in human biochemistry and exercise physiology research. The nutritional component of our programs focuses on choosing the right foods, in the right proportions as fuel, and the powerful effect that food has on the body as a whole: energy level, weight management, and performance.
Unlike traditional programs, our lifestyle approach does not advocate the outdated paradigms of roller coaster of “dieting” or generic fitness plans. Instead, the program provides the client individualized programs based on facts, stats, and figures unique to them and their lifestyle. Our philosophy is very clear, effective, and is sustainable long-term because it’s centered on the client.
Our programs’ success is measured in terms of long term and maintained improvement in health symptoms with accompanying weight loss (or gain) if needed. Subjectively measurable indicators include energy levels, mental clarity, sense of well-being, happiness, and strength.
Typically, our personalized programs consist of multiple private and/or group sessions that focus on the client’s unique needs and life situation. We will work directly with you and any related health professionals on your team to design and execute personalized programs, based on current health conditions, needs, and goals. The programs are designed to integrate seamlessly with additional medical services, diagnostics, and treatment if needed.
Anne BaughmanPatient Care Cooordinator & Ideal Protein Coach
When Anne came to BioIntelligent Wellness, Julianna asked me what I had been different since the move… she explained her confusion about the weight gain, as she was eating less and working out more. Julianna explained that this was "exactly the problem". Turns out everything she knew about nutrition and diet was backwards. She wasn’t consuming enough calories and protein to support her intensive workouts, and as a result her body was compensating by burning muscle and storing fat. !
Enter Ideal Protein: the perfect “diet” for someone like her who needed to be retrained on how and what to eat to allow the body to function correctly and burn fat. Not only was it convenient for my busy lifestyle, but it has taught her to plan my meals and eat on a regular basis. Since Anne's life-changing experience with Ideal Protein, she loves to help clients who may be experiencing the same confusion she once had.
Debra BeymerIdeal Protein Coach
The only one of three siblings to struggle with weight issues, her mom always reassured her that it was baby fat and she would lose it as she grew. After so many years of being overweight, the baby fat answer wasn't so reassuring anymore.
Moving from West Virginia to California Deb experienced major culture shock! Not only were people encouraging her to lose weight, but they would say, “You would be so pretty if you lost weight.” That made her feel even worse.
Fast forward to 2011, she moved to San Diego and was introduced to the Ideal Protein weight loss program.
Still skeptical, she gave it a shot, because she was tired of doing the yo-yo diets, starving herself, and having no direction. She was spending money on other programs and seeing some results, but then gaining the weight back as soon as she stopped the program.
On Ideal Protein, Deb went from 185 lbs to her goal weight of 160 lbs in 3 months! This crucial turning point in her life has inspired her to share her success with others.
In Deb's words,
"IDEAL PROTEIN IS THE BEST WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM THAT I HAVE EVER DONE!!! It’s not a lifetime – it’s a lifestyle. You go through four phases, you lose the weight, and the follow-ups help keep it off. I am now a Coach for Ideal Protein because it is the real deal. And I am not the FAT KID anymore!!!"
DonnaIdeal Protein Coach
She tried many fad diets such as the cabbage soup diet, Phentermine, and HcG. Some of the diets worked at first, but inevitably, she would gain the weight back, and often gained even more back.
In 2011, Donna found BioIntelligent Wellness and Julianna as her nutritionist. They worked on her weight and she started losing, slowly and with quite a bit of effort. Then she was introduced to Ideal Protein. Suddenly the weight came off easier than it had in the past. Her body was becoming something she didn't recognize: slim and toned!!
Donna now enjoys living a healthy lifestyle and helping others achieve their weight loss goals with Ideal Protein

I have always had weight problems since i can remember, however that wasn't the main problem. Thinking my weight was who I am and who I always will be was my problem. Ideal Protein and more-importantly the support it gives me let me know who I really am, and who I want to be as a person not a body."
Like many people, Danielle has been overweight since she can remember. Having been raised with two opposite eating habits Danielle choose the one that gave her the most comfort. This comfort came at a cost however, every weight-loss method her parents could try.
Going to fat camp 3 times, trying every diet they could try, and even lap-band surgery wasn't enough. It seemed to her that no force in this universe was able to change her eating habits. That is of course until she tried Ideal Protein and met her greatest support system Julianna. She understood more about nutrition from the first visit than she had her entire life. All her life she had thought "eat less, that's how you lose weight", well imagine her surprise when she learned that was simply not the case.
