Is Ideal Protein just for people who need to lose a substantial amount of weight?

This program is for everyone -whether your goal is to lose 10 pounds or 100 pounds. We also offer a 21-day protocol for people already at their goal weight who want to address cellulite.

About how long will I need to be on the protocol?

It depends on how much weight you would like to lose. Most of our dieters lose between 2-7 pounds per week. The first two weeks, most clients lose at least 6-8 pounds.

All together there are three phases to the protocol, but you will lose all the weight during the first phase.

How is the program structured?

There are four phases to the protocol:

  • Phase I: Weight Loss
  • You will be on Phase 1 until you hit your goal weight
  • Phase 2: Stabilization
  • Typically, two weeks of for stabilization and reintroduction of carbohydrates. Depending on the amount lost, this phase may be extended.
  • Phase 3: Maintenance
  • This is your maintenance or “Lifestyle” program. You will not be required to use the Ideal Proteinfoods during this phase; however, your coach will continue to support your achievements and new lifestyle with our 12 month maintenance support program. You are not required to continue the program for 12 months however, we have found that our most successful dieters utilize this phase to expand their diets while learning how to make lifestyle changes that are supportive of their goals and teach them to keep the weight off.
Can I be successful with the program if I travel a lot?

Yes, we have many successful dieters; some who travel as much as 80% of the time. The Ideal Protein foods are conveniently packaged and travel friendly.

The whole foods you are required to consume can be found at any restaurant and grocery store. Your coach can offer you the option of a virtual coaching appointment (via Zoom, telephone, FaceTime or Skype) if you are not able to come into the office for your weekly coaching visit. Your dedicated coach will help guide you based on the parameters of your life, no matter how hectic it is. The coaches maintain electronic contact with you between appointments, so you are never left wondering what to do – whether it is what to order if going to restaurants or how to navigate business luncheons.

Metabolism Testing

Am I required to attend a results session, or can I just get the results?

While a results session is recommended and clients find more value in attending, we are also happy to provide you with just a copy of the report. You will not receive the macronutrient and meal distribution guidelines. If you need additional guidance, you are always welcome to schedule a results session later or to schedule a customized nutrition appointment and those results may be utilized as a foundation of your program.

How do I prepare for the metabolism testing test?
  • Fast for 8‐12 hours prior to test time (no consumption of food or beverages except water)
  • No exercise or strenuous activity 12 hours prior to test
  • Try to remain relaxed during the 3 hours prior to your test
  • Wear comfortable clothing to your test
How does metabolism testing help me lose weight?

Metabolism Testing shows you how to properly nourish YOUR body in a way that meet your body’s minimum requirements for organ function, allowing your body to release its stored fat. Often, our clients are convinced they have a slow metabolism and that’s the reason its so difficult to lose weight. Statistically speaking, most overweight and obese people have an average or fast metabolic rate.

After testing, they realize they have not been eating enough (either insufficient calories or overtraining). When the body perceives its under “stress”, it’s intelligent design signals it to store fat instead of burning it. The old adage eat less and move more is often the opposite of what one needs to do to lose weight.

How does metabolism testing help me stabilize my weight after weight loss?

Many of our clients are more confused about what and how much to eat after weight loss and have increased fear about regaining weight. It’s no surprise, 95% of people who lose weight regain within months or years. Some people try and continue to eat what they did to lose weight and it backfires and sets you up to regain. Others lose connection with their body’s hunger signaling and either eat too much or too little – both can cause you to gain after losing weight.

BioIntelligent Wellness believes metabolism testing is essential data to successfully maintain your weight after losing. Metabolism testing and the results give you real, personalized data to help your nutritionist create a scientifically based, lifestyle plan.

How does metabolism testing help support athletic training and goals?

Your resting metabolic rate (RMR) accounts for about 70% of the calories you burn daily, outside of any activities or exercise. The metabolism test allows you to establish an accurate, personalized foundation for your overall nutritional plan. With the results, you can plan for the number of calories, and macronutrient splits that make the most sense for both your training and your rest days. If you need support, you can work with one of our nutritionists to further dial is your sport-specific performance nutrition plan.

Provider Faq

Is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method safe for people on blood pressure and fluid medication?

Yes. People with high blood pressure are often overweight and will benefit from the protocol. However, they will have to be mindful of their medication dosing and will be required to monitor their blood pressure twice daily and work with their physician to monitor their prescriptions. Additionally, they may need to monitor salt intake, as prescribed by their physician.

Is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method safe for Diabetics, Type I and Type II, as well as for hypoglycemic (low blood sugar)? 

Diabetics have so much to gain from our protocol because regulating glycemia is at the very heart of our method. While we cannot reverse

  • Type I Diabetes, we can help those afflicted to lose weight.
  • However, our Ideal Protein weight loss method can help reverse Type II Diabetes or, at the very least, diminish the condition’s vulnerabilities.
  • People who suffer from hypoglycemia can also follow our weight loss method or our alternative plan.

Still, diabetics need be particularly vigilant on our protocol. In the first few weeks, people suffering from hypoglycemia should not exercise as much as usual in order to facilitate the reeducation of their pancreas and give their body a chance to readjust to its new eating habits. As well, they should stock up on the Ideal Protein Peach Mango drink, in case they find themselves during a low blood sugar crisis, which is predictable in their case. When it happens, they should sit down, breathe deeply and reach for an Ideal Protein Peach Mango drink. It will calm them instantly. They must be confident in the knowledge that their body, more specifically their pancreas, will, in time, soon, readjust itself to function as it was originally intended by nature.

If on medication, is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method safe?

Our protocol is most likely safe but still, we recommend that your physician is consultant prior to beginning. Remember, Ideal Protein foods are real foods, drugfree with no stimulants. Each Ideal Protein envelope is the equivalent, nutritionally, to a chicken breast, a small filet mignon or a filet of fish.

Is the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method safe for children and what is the minimum age for following the protocol?

We successfully offer this program to youth over the age of 12. Younger children will require a physician’s release to participate. If a parent wants to replace his child’s unhealthy snacks with healthy foods, including Ideal Protein foods, the parent must ensure that the child understands the reasons why they are being deprived of these foods. If not, the child may react adversely by wanting those unhealthy foods even more than before.

How many calories will I be consuming daily while on the weight loss phase of Ideal Protein?

In short, you will be consuming approximately 900-1100 calories from the foods you eat. Unlike the other keto diets, Ideal Protein provides adequate amounts of protein to protect you from muscle loss and Ideal Protein also provides the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals.

On average, you need 2,000 calories each day to meet your body’s needs, and 900 of these calories are going to come from the Ideal Protein diet. The remaining 1,100 calories will come from fat taken from your own fat stores!
