Ketogenic Weight Loss Seminar

We are always ready to answer any of your questions

Ideal Protein

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.

Am I able to work out on Ideal Protein?

Yes. We may recommend you modify the intensity over the first 3 weeks to allow your body to adjust to the program. Your coach will add an additional Ideal Protein food for each 40-60 minutes of exercise. They may also recommend you avoid anaerobic exercise as it requires your body to utilize glycogen for fuel and your levels will be insufficient while in ketosis.

Are the Ideal Protein foods the same as other commercially sold low carb snacks?

Not even close! The Ideal Protein foods are all non-GMO and were designed for absorption. The foods are tested based on the international bioavailability scale to be between 96% – 297% bioavailability. This means for the same number of calories; you receive up to 3 times the amount of nutrients. Essentially, you would need to eat up to 3 alternative products for every Ideal Protein food. That would mean up to 3 times the number of calories to equal the same nutrient value.

Are the products Gluten Free?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat and related grains causing a wide variety of mild, to very serious symptoms in gluten sensitive individuals.

As part of Ideal Protein’s initiative to meet the dietary needs of gluten sensitive dieters, they’ve made it easier than ever to select gluten-free alternatives on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss method, printing an easy-to-spot “certified gluten-free” symbol on over 40 of their packages.

The items that are certified gluten-free are produced in a Celiac-certified facility and on equipment certified to be free of gluten-containing grains. Dieters who have Celiac Disease must select from only these selections. Many of our gluten-sensitive dieters can consume the full line of Ideal Protein products without complications.

Are there any products that someone who is lactose intolerant should avoid?

People who are lactose intolerant do not produce the enzyme lactase are therefore cannot digest the sugar lactose (a disaccharide composed of a molecule of galactose and glucose). If they ingest lactose, they typically can get cramps or gas. This is NOT an allergy, so they wouldn’t have a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction.

Our products that contain whey isolates (most of the drinks) only contain about 0.05% lactose and this small amount usually does not cause any problems with these folks. I would have them avoid the products that contain whole milk protein (the cappuccino, the chocolate drink, the omelet, the crispy cereal, puddings, etc). The other option is to let them try a “small amount” of some of these foods and to see if they in fact do experience any discomfort. They can take one of the many products for lactose intolerant people that contain lactase (i.e“Dairy-Eze” or “Lactaid”). But most of these folks just opt to avoid the foods containing the whole milk protein.

Ideal Protein Virtual Program

Can I buy Ideal Protein foods online?

Yes, we can help you buy your Ideal Protein foods online. We are currently helping dieters of other clinics that need to buy food but plan to continue with their coaching program. If your clinic is closed, we can help you with making sure you have food and coaching support. Since Ideal Protein is not a do-it-yourself program, we want to make sure you have the support you need.

Can you ship foods overnight?

Do you deliver Ideal Protein food?

Do you have Spanish speaking coaches?

¡Si! Tenemosentrenadores de hablahispana y podemosapoyar a quieneshacendieta Ideal Protein enespañol.

Do you offer coaching if I am still able to get food from my local clinic but not coaching support?

We understand that many dieters are unable to meet with their coach due to the current coronavirus situation and we can help support you during this time.

Do you offer virtual coaching for dieter’s that are in maintenance?

Yes! No matter what phase of the diet you are on, we offer virtual coaching to support you. For many, maintenance is where dieters need even more support in navigating the whole food environment and social challenges. We’re here to help!!

How are virtual visits held?

We offer just about any option for virtual coaching visits and it really depends what works best for you. We typically use telephone, FaceTime, Zoom, Skype, What’s App or Viber.

  1. You’ll visit the store to select your products.
  2. Complete the Ideal Protein health Profile so your coach can get to know you
  3. We’ll contact you to confirm your shipping details and schedule your coaching visits

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

Are there any products that someone who is lactose intolerant should avoid?

People who are lactose intolerant do not produce the enzyme lactase are therefore cannot digest the sugar lactose (a disaccharide composed of a molecule of galactose and glucose). If they ingest lactose, they typically can get cramps or gas. This is NOT an allergy, so they wouldn’t have a life-threatening anaphylactic reaction.

But most of these folks just opt to avoid the foods containing the whole milk protein.

Can Gastric bypass/Lapband patients go on the Ideal Protein Weight Loss Method?

The diet is great for gastric bypass / lap band patients…both for losing weight and to provide a great source of protein in a very small volume of food, Lapbanders will do well with that.

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!

How would the sea salt and supplements affect a dieter that is bipolar and is on Lithium?

Lithium and sodium (chemically very similar) affect each other in an inverse manner. That is as you increase your sodium intake your lithium levels will decrease and if you cut down on salt, your lithium levels could creep up. Lithium unfortunately has a “narrow therapeutic index” meaning the blood level has to be “just right”. Too little and there is no benefit to the patient. Too much and it can be very toxic (usually nausea is the first symptom of too high level). The only really good way to monitor this is do a lithium blood level (Quest of Lab Corp routinely do these). Start the dieter on the program and draw a lithium level at about three weeks. Tell he or she to keep track of the salt they are using. If the blood level comes back a little low, tell them to “back off on the salt a tad”. If it comes back a little high, tell them to use more salt. Hopefully it won’t be a big deal, but at least we’re watching things. It is recommended to repeat the test in a month.

During the first TWO WEEKS of the program, the glycogen stores have been depleted and the dieter is consuming only the barest of necessary carbs for the brain, adrenal medulla, nucleated blood cells and a couple of other cells, that CANNOT use ketonic bodies as a fuel source, they MUST have glucose.

I have a patient who is on Coumadin and was told not to eat any cabbage, lettuce, broccoli, green beans, turnip greens, etc., but he has, and his levels of Coumadin needed have skyrocketed. Can he do the diet and eat something else? Can patients on Coumadin do this diet?

Patients on Coumadin certainly MAY do the diet, over a couple of months, especially if they supplement with some good Omega-3 oils (i.e. fish oil, cod liver oil) and decreasing their blood sugar via the “protocol”, their dosage of Coumadin can usually be reduced. However certain vegetables (due to their high vitamin K content) can cause certain clotting factors to increase thus necessitating a need for an increased dose of Coumadin (Warfarin). Attached is a list of the “K” content of various foods. Patients should pick the vegetables that have the lowest levels of “K” and it should not pose a problem with the diet.

Good recommendations would be: mushrooms, zucchini, peppers, garlic, only iceberg lettuce, celery, etc. I would advise to keep this list handy and the “docs” can give it to patients who must take Coumadin. Also, there’s a pharmacist’s trick, if necessary, the patient can take a “baby aspirin” per day. This will cause the levels of Coumadin to rise in the blood without increasing the dose of the drug. Note: This should only be done if absolutely necessary and the patient should be advised to watch for signs of bruising.

Intuitive Eating

What is Intuitive Eating?

Intuitive Eating is a philosophy that directly supports your learning goal of this course. It’s a style of eating that promotes healthy attitude toward food and body image. It’s a process that reconnects you to your intuition and inner voice to guide you toward nourishing yourself in a way that is enjoyable and effortless.

What will I learn in this course?

This course is meant to help you break free from diet mentality, from a restrictive lifestyle and having negative views about your own body. There are many phrases that circulate when it comes to nutrition, like “eating clean”, “cheat meals”, or “good vs bad” foods. When we label foods as good and bag, we assign value to them and in turn our food choices can be burdened with guilt. Food is meant to be enjoyable and to nourish our body. It’s the only vessel you have, so learn to be kind to yourself and listen to your inner voice to find out what feels right for you!

Can the program be done privately?

This course is also offered in a private format. Many clients prefer the convenience of a one-on-one format as the program may be started at any time and offers a more intimate setting for those that prefer privacy. All clients will still have access to the community features of the program and all other features of the group program.

When does the group program start?

This course will start July 6th. Make sure to register ahead of time to secure your place. Late registrations will not be accepted in order to make sure you get the full value and content of this course. But don’t worry, you can always join in on the next course start date in August.

How long is the program?

This course is a 6-week self-study with group and mentor support. You do have to option of upgrading to a program option with individual focus as well to make sure you get the attention you need during this journey.

What do I need to participate?

You will need access to a computer, tablet or cellphone and internet access. You will need an account with Facebook as well to join in on the support group. Our weekly live group sessions will run via Zoom/Facebook live so you can virtually participate from anywhere. Lastly, you will receive worksheets as part of your weekly education material. You will be able to use the electronic documents on your computer, but if you’re like me, you may want a printer to be able to print a hard copy of worksheets for your records.

How much time do I need to dedicate to this course?

Having an online course offers the benefit of flexibility. You can complete course material and participate in the Facebook group at your own pace. The live group calls are scheduled for Thursday evenings and will last about one hour. However, if you are not able to join, sessions will be recorded and posted in the private group so that you can still get the value of information that comes up during group calls.
